Jilly - maybe you could enjoy the painting as a creative process and then sell them on Fiver for people to use as portable pill carriers! Or vitamin carriers ... lots of purposes. I bet people would love them!

Just do it as the mood hits you, as a fun mini painting project. That way it's not stressful and you know it will help others!

Seeds!! Now that's a GREAT idea. Each year when my husband gets in his shipment of seeds for the garden he just leaves the unused seeds in their little packet and the puts that back into the container they were shipped in - inevitably I pick up that container and the seeds spill everywhere because they little packets don't stay closed. I'll definitely have to use them as containers for his seeds next year!! Tying a string around my finger so I'll remember smile

Yes, and the seeds also dry up and go off, when left in the opened packets. I waste a lot of seeds that way. The resealable containers would be much better. Good tip! smile

Someone posted in freecycle they are seeking spice jars. I mentioned to them they could have by bin of medicine bottles if they don't get any actual spice jars. We will see if they reply.

Maybe I should just offer them on FC anyway.

I heard back and the guy got some actual spice jar offers. he thanked me anyway.

I now have three kinds of seeds to place in my meds jars! Yucca, prickly pear and hungarian cucumber. Can't wait to put them in there, mark them with a sharpie, and line them up for springtime.

I also found a tree with peppercorns on it that I will fill a jar with next!
