Crafty : Repurposing Califia Jug

Oh, hi! Remember me? The worst blogger ever? I've said it in previous posts but tax season really takes the wind out of my blogging sails. I thought about making a cute hiatus graphic but was too tired by the time I got home. But April 15th is behind us so now I plan on being around much more regularly! Yay!

To kick off my return, I have a little craft! I started drinking almond milk since it's low in calories and I love having cereal in the morning. The cereal in itself can pack a calorie punch so if I lighten up the milk portion it won't be so bad. I was drinking another brand that wasn't kept in the refrigerated section but I was at a different grocery store and couldn't find my usual, so I branched out and got the Califia brand. To be entirely honest, one of the biggest reasons why I got it was for the jug. My crafting brain was going crazy! Luckily, it also happens to be quite delicious and I have been buying them up like crazy.  Needless to say, I have a couple of them stockpiled and I wanted to do something with one of them. I had some leftover fake flowers sitting around so I whipped this together!

I think it came out pretty cute and is a simple way to brighten up a space. I might take it into work since I'm decorating my cubicle now that we're not slammed. We shall see!

I'm expecting my Loot Crate within the next couple days so I should be back with that! I'll start up again with the Birchbox and ipsy posts next month and I'm hopefully going to get back into the makeup swing of things since it's starting to get sunny and wonderful outside!
