The Lorax

Who hasn't read "The Lorax" by Dr. Seuss? If you haven't... stop reading this blog post (yes, this is probably the first time I'm going to tell you to NOT tune into my post!) and go pick up your very own copy. I had some time to kill a few weeks back, and so where did my little feet lead me? Yes, to the book section in our shop on base... and there my little fingers danced over the decent selection of children's books, and found one special one, written by the Dr.

For those that have read this book, you wouldn't be surprised to know, that as I sat in the shop and read this darling book, the tears just started to flow, and then all of a sudden I was weeping. A quick synopsis, for those that haven't read, can be found here. This book came home with me that day, and it has been read... A LOT (by me of course, the hubby refuses to touch it). Wow, it's just one of those little reminders to cherish what God has blessed us re-evaluate our priorities... and to preserve the beauty.

Just days after reading this book, I happened upon 3 old Korean laboratory beakers... I could not pass them up... especially while upon inspection I noticed that the word "Lorex" was written on them... yes, a slightly different spelling... but still, same sound to me! I immediately picked them up, and repurposed them... Although Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House launched a movement, called "The Lorax Project", I'm going to try and incorporate more reusing/repurposing in my crafting over the next couple of months. So stay tuned for some fun tutorials on ways to give something "maybe not so useful", some meaning.
