I "rescued" a little birdhouse w a platform on a post over the winter.  This is inspiring me to take the renovation of it a little further!  Such a great, and cute, job!

A portion of a sign was out and started wondering about how it gets relit. 

Signs typically go dark for one of two reasons:

1. Transformer burned out. This is a super-easy fix; you just disconnect the power, take out the old one, wire in a new one, and turn it back on.

2. Tube cracked or broke. Depending on where the break is, your sign guy might be able to cut out a section of the tube and replace it.

It's actually not mine, but in a restaurant where we were eating.  With the placement, I have a feeling it's #1, but could be #2 as well!

So incredibly cool!  Coincidentally, was at a restaurant last night (earlier tonight since now it's extremely late night) and had a neon discussion.  A portion of a sign was out and started wondering about how it gets relit.  Great artwork on your part.  Had to be a lot of patience!

I have never seen Star Wars, but even I think this purse is too cool!  Great job.  Totally blown away.  (I have already been criticized over not seeing SW by a former boss.  He shut up about it once he saw that I still created a killer SW themed presentation for his meeting!)

Noelle, have you seen this cam out of Georgia?  She's laying on 2 eggs.  Available to watch 24-7.  Gets a little more active around hatching time and sometimes a bit much to watch with what they bring home for dinner.  But interesting at least and sometimes addictive.  http://hdontap.com/index.php/video/stream/great-horned-owl-cam

Sorry guys. I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. I was super busy over the holidays and just now I am catching up enough to craft and get back to being me. I should be participating more from here on out. I missed you all!

Prompt:  Red Alert - I will go down with this ship (corrected, thanks Bunny1kenobi!)
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Outdoor cat snowbox
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My neighbor has two cats that pretty much live in my yard. She lets them in the house but I cant because I already have cats indoors and they dont really get along. We are expecting a huge snow storm and I wanted to make sure that the outdoor cats have a place to go in case they dont get inside. Last year I made an insulated tube for them and brought that out but wanted to throw something else out there just in case any other animals needed a place out of the snow. I made this out of an Amazon box. I left one of the flaps out as a little roof and another to block the wind. Hopefully putting it against the house will give it more protection. I covered the entire thing in two layers of extra thick trash bags on the outside to keep it from getting all soggy in the snow and put towels on the inside. It was a last minute idea to try to help any outdoor animals. Also, it looks sort of like a Borg Cube so I will go down with this ship for my love of animals.
Project Picture:

Love that you were willing to do this for your neighbor's cats.  I've been thinking that for the same problem, but my neighbor's just don't let their cats in.  It's so aggravating.  But in 2014, my car got out and I met a cat expert (literally) and there are a couple of things you might want to consider.  They need a second exit in case something tries to come in on them and they need to get out.  And the blankets can get damp from just regular moisture in the air and refreeze.  Hay is really better because it helps insulate.  I may actually get a dog house off CL for the cats and/or the possum that seems to live behind my house!

Research Project Name: Bathroom Countertop
Team: Wordy
Brief Description: I've been bathroom counter-less for over a year now. You can brush your teeth in one bathroom and bathe in the other bathroom. Luckily you can potty in both. I have tried everything to find something to fit our 1960s house. I am going for the atomic age, Jetson's look. I am going to try to use plywood, paint and glitter to replicate the glitter lam look of the past. I hope it works out because there are no current manufacturers who make laminate with any glitter finish. I can't find vintage stock which is probably because laminate is fairly brittle and needs to be kept climate controlled. I'd pick the first one but I also like the Formica Light Aqua Sequin, Camelia Sequin (for the other bathroom), and the Textolite Gold Nugget. I am guessing that real gold flake is what they used in the Textolite. I plan on trying it unless one of you glitter divas know of something better.


Here is the sink with Hudee ring, against the wallpaper.

I plan to edge it with a metal trim from one of these places. I just have to figure out if I want stainless or aluminum.

Have you checked with a Habitat for Humanity store in your area?  We have two in Nashville that each get different things.  One gets more counters than another so you may want to check with multiple.  Someone may be able to tell you if they ever get anything close to what you're looking for.  It might as least be the era style you're looking for.
