AN EXERCISE IN CREATIVITY
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!
