1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Wig for Dog? on: February 04, 2010 06:43:17 PM
My family has a dog that was badly burned 4 years ago, he recovered just fine and is really no worse for the wear, except the hair where he was burned never really grew back. (Our hot water tank had "broken" and we were moving boiling water from the kitchen to the bathroom, he decided to appear out of nowhere and my mom tripped on him. The three of us all got burned but the pooch definitely absorbed the majority of the spill. Turns out the first plumber that came to our house to look at the water tank turned it completely down instead of turning up the temperature.... Roll Eyes). There are some areas where there is definite improvement, such as small, thin tufts and patches of hair.

Anyway, I was hoping to find a creatve way to cover his bald patch, as he tends to lick it and get wierd questions about it and is moving in with me now. I am hoping to shy away from a shirt/coat fix because he is long haired and it is on his back close to his tail. The bald patch is about the size of a medium dinner plate. I was thinking of making a back wig (lol) that I could clip onto his fur, using the hair clips that look almost like combs...almost a clip/pick hybrid? The other idea I had was to make the patch just look like a patch from a patchwork quilt. Is that too dorky?

Any ideas, however small or seemingly odd would be greatly appreciated!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Octupus' Garden? on: May 08, 2009 02:43:25 PM
I just moved into my new house, and yard is very....lacking. I decided to put in a garden. Being witty, I decided that the appropriate "theme" for the garden should be Octupus' Garden, like the Beatles song. Here is where I ran into problems. First, I was going to line the garden bed with rocks, and paint the lyrics to the song on the rocks. But, someone told me that was tacky. Also, I do not know how I would make an octopus, I was thinking about wood burning an octopus onto a large piece of wood, and then having ivy climb the wood (I really want an ivy plant, and it seems to suite an octupus, its almost tentacle-esque, and it could be seaweedy-ish!). Here are my two questions:

Octupus- How should I do it?
Lyrics- Would it be tacky to have the lyrics on rocks? Or should I maybe just put the chorus on a couple rocks and leave the rest blank, or maybe just octupus' garden on one?

Any help, critism, advice and more ideas would be greatly appreciated!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wire Tree Earring Hanger on: July 13, 2008 11:24:25 PM
Hopefully I have gotten this into the right category, I debated putting it in the jewelry section, but seeing as how it isn't technically jewelry (but rather an accessory for jewelry) I decided it might fit better here.

I made this by twisting pieces of black wire together in all sorts of different ways, some thicker than others. It has three main limbs, which are held together with wire that kind of makes it way around the three main parts to keep it held together. I then added some other limbs, so that it looked more like a tree and could hold more earrrings. The leaves are guitar picks that I cut tiny holes into by using the corner of an xacto knife.

Here is a picture of it before putting on the earrings.


And an action shot!


I hope you guys like it!
