Not Stamping Related....

....unless you use aluminum foil in your crafting, but my friend Lyneen posted this today and I thought it was incredible -- I never knew this! Just checked it out, and it is true and it does work. Here's what Lyneen shared on her blog:

I got this in an email from a dear friend today!!!!"...I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Who ever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? What a fantastic idea. Now, if someone would just make plasticwrap that didn't stick to itself.I've been using aluminum foil for more years than I care to remember. Great stuff, but sometimes it can be a pain. You know, like when you are in the middle of doing something and you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time. Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, 'Press here to lock end'. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran warp roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up. I'm sharing this with my friends that did not know this. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this."Yes, I had to go and check the foil box in my kitchen... you know it had those little tabs!!!! I DIDN'T KNOW THEY EXISTED UNTIL TODAY!!!!
Thanks, Lyneen, for sharing this. I am just thrilled!
