Ugly corner fix

This is the story of a small, happy, homemaking fix. I hated how ugly this cardboard box of printer paper was on our entryway shelf:

Then I thought: I have yarn; I can fix this.

And so I crocheted a basket to fit the printer paper box, using a large hook and several strands of yarn at a time.

And lo, the ugly corner became pretty:

It's a simple, small thing, but now when I look in that corner, I no longer feel growly about the ugliness.

I love sweet little solutions like that. 

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

You did a great job and the new printer box looks lovely.

Thank you, Bethany and Sandra Ann!

Bethany, I figure if I fix all the little things, *eventually* the big picture will look right. (Not sure I want to look at how long "eventually" will realistically end up being ...)
