I love finding uses for things that the original maker never intended or even dreamed of.  The appearance of whatever I make does not matter.  What matters is that it works.  I am practical.  As an ex-girlfriend once said, “You’re too damn practical!”  Perhaps this explains why she is an ex-girlfriend.

I needed shaving-brush holder.  I was not going to buy one when I could make one that no one else has.  I looked at a container for tofu . . .


The first attempt did not work because the brush kept slipping by the string.


I replaced the string with an elastic band, but the base was not wide enough making the holder unsteady.  Also, I needed a bigger base to catch the water from the dripping brush.


I attached a lid from a yogurt container making the base bigger.  Perfection!

I love how I played and exercised my creativity!  I love that the tofu and yogurt makers had no idea that their containers could be used to hold a shaving brush.  And I love that I am the only one in the Universe who has this shaving-brush holder!
