Don't Throw it Away -- Create Something Amazing!

That is the name of this wonderful new book that I just bought for Holland. It is a book that has tons of ideas on how to turn trash into treasure - art treasure! Holland loves to hoard things, and she loves to make art so this is a perfect idea book for her. My only real concern is that we may never throw anything away ever again. Here is a picture of the book cover, and what will follows will be Holland's first couple of projects....
