Raise the Bar is baaaack!

Happy finally Friday everyone!
Well we celebrated the first Friday of August by opening up the Bar again - woohoo! This week's challenge is super fun and easy:


Yes yes yes, we are about to be bombarded with entries, I can just feel it! :) The Bar-Tenders want to see what everyone has been up to, so come on and link up your work!

I decided to share one of my many altered items that I tweaked to coordinate with my new craft room (pictures are coming, as soon as I can tidy it up a bit). This is my new copic holder: a lazy susan that I bought for $1 at a yard sale, and vegetable or fruit cans that I've cleaned and covered with dp. I LOVE it! It's so easy to spin around and much cheaper than the caddies that I've been seeing. Everything can be rearranged, I can pull out one entire can of a color family, and you can change out the motif whenever you want to! In fact, this is what it looked like as I was changing it out (some are turned so you can see the can, I think they were corn and mandarin orange cans - lol!):

My last craft space was kind of colorful since it needed to coordinate with the playroom. Now that the craft room is all by its happy self (haha), I changed it out in a matter of minutes to a black and white theme.
Now let's see what kind of happy crafting you've been up to! Come over to Raise The Bar's blog and link up your work.
Have a wonderful Friday everyone, thank you for coming by!
