I have finally gone off the deep end...

I will find a use for just about anything...

I was going through the junk drawer this morning to find rolling papers, it's not what you think! Swear! lol! I had a busted cigarette that needed fixin' =) (don;t bother to yell at me for smoking, that's DH's job!) anyway when I was laid off, I 'rolled my own,' getting the big drums of tobacco and stuffing the tubes myself. Every canister had a pack of 100 papers in it. Being the pack rat that I am, I tossed them in the junk drawer.

So, I'm browsing the seed exchange forum, and it occurs to me that there must be a way to use the papers for seed packets. It also briefly occurs to me that some people might be offended by them, but then it occured to me that I didn't care =)

And here it is, a 'Top' quality seed packet...

Too funny! Hope you don't get laid off anytime soon again, or you'll regret using those up. LOL

Funny, funny. Be careful that someone doesn't think those seeds are something the government doesn't want us planting. Ha, ha. My local water utility co. has small little envelopes to put your payment in if the office is closed. Somehow or other a couple have found their way to our house. They make great seed holders. I also use empty film containers for seed sharing. Keep the ha, ha coming we'll need it when winter sets in. Enjoying a beautiful Tennessee day!

Well, I don't smoke and used to keep papers around for cleaning my flute keys. Clever idea.
