Have you ever experienced the pain of stepping on a small metal construction vehicle or kneeling on a Lego? I’m pretty sure Denise Tucker has.
Tucker is behind Denise Designs, one of the exhibitors at Women’s Night Out recently. She unfortunately doesn’t have a website, and I thought I’d taken more pictures of her wares, but take a look — these are seriously both cute and useful:
Tucker takes paint cans — she gets them by the gross, unused, from a hardware store — and decorates them for various uses. There was a construction-themed can that would have been perfect for all my son’s mini-trucks, there are princess and dance-themed cans for all a little girl’s tiny pretties, there were cans suitable to store baby stuff or to use instead of wrapping paper for a small present.
“I’m addicted to paper and ribbons,” she confessed. “This is just a way for me to satisfy my paper cravings.”
Just think of the possibilities — a can of toys for the car, cans for Legos, a can to store all those necklaces she won at Octoberfest that she just can’t bear to part with. Even if you use it just to wrap a present, it’s going to be one time you won’t mind when the kids are more interested in the wrappings than in the gift!
Tucker also designs greeting cards and decorated cakes for all occasions. I didn’t see her cakes, but honestly, anyone who can make a paint can look THAT good has the eye to make a pretty cake.
