your old VHS tapes

I bet you're thinking "Gee, what am I going to do with that VHS of 'Pretty Woman' ? I've seen it _way_ too many times, but it seems wasteful just to toss it. If there only was a way to recycle it...."
well, ponder that problem no longer. There's a site that shows you how to take apart a VHS tape to harvest the tape within. And from this bountiful harvest, you can make yourself (or anyone else) a cool little purse:

Think how happy you would be, carrying a crocheted video to your next movie outing or to work. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm curious. It could be difficult to work with, being sort of slippery, but I am going to give it a shot. After all, you could say some major Oscar winners had a part in making your new purse - and you'd be right;)

_enjoy_

Payton Update:
Tomorrow Payton and his family are going to Busch Gardens courtesy of WIYY, 98 Rock. The family is very happy and excited to go. My sister (Payton's grandmother) said she will be quite happy to push the stroller for Payton's younger brother, John Charles. It sounds as if a good time will be had by all.
