Hubby with the Mini-Eye!

By profession, my husband is a barber, but in his spare time, he works on cars and such.  Most recently, he had worked on my minivan and replaced a wheel bearing.  Well, two of them, really, both of the front ones.  Now, usually, when you replace them, they are just little cup thingies and there is nothing fun about them. Mine, however, were so shot that they were crumbling apart and the bearings were coming out.  James picked one up, looked at me and said, "Think you could use these for cans?"  What do you think?

So I printed out some Campell's soup labels from Jim's Printables on cardstock.  You can also find more at Jennifer's.  I cleaned the bearings really well and then glued the wrappers on with tacky glue.  Think it worked all right?

So, my mini world is wearing off on my husband.  Yeaaaaaaaaaa!!!

And, no I have not fogotten about the rest of trip with Brae.  :)  I will share on the ending soon.
