    Box Art!

    As much as I love Tom Bihn products, I don't know if you all have focused on the amazing boxes that our bags arrive in. Solid, sturdy, and easy to manage, these little treasures rarely leave in my recycling bin. I like to keep them for specialized shipping of gifts or the rare resold Tom Bihn goodie to its new home. My daughter saw my stash of boxes, though, and had a different idea. Why not take this amazing cardboard and turn it into a loom?

    And that's just what she did (did I mention she was bored?)

    I think she has been doing a wonderful job! I'll try to snap another photo as she nears completion. I think she's planning on using her art piece to serve as a runner for something in her room.

    I absolutely love how my kids can take a look at something and imagine it as a useful product in some completely unique way that I never thought of. I love how they enjoy the process. As a process person myself, that absolutely makes me smile!

    that's cool!

    My husband takes all my Tom Bihn boxes. He has collected a bunch of parts and bits and pieces of things that he keeps in the garage. He uses the boxes to store them all in. Whenever I buy something from Tom Bihn, he says: "All right, a Tom Bihn order! Box please."

    That is such a creative use of the box! It's so wonderful that she is developing that process of thinking through useful ways to recycle.

    It sure does look rather storm-y like, doesn't it?
