Uh-oh.  I'm inspired!  Beautiful block!

Whoa!  I feel all excited about those, but am kind of speechless.  What are the 2 bird-themed pieces made of?  They look like porcelain.

Amazing transformation!  A hint for next time you have stinky wood to deal with is alcohol-based primer which is available at "real" paint stores (not sure about home centers and hardware stores).  It STINKS itself and definitely should be applied in a WELL ventilated area.  However, the strong smell only lasts until the primer is dry (and hour or two) AND that stuff blocks the smell (and stains) of 50 years of cigarette smoke, house-fire smoke, mildew, etc. so it can block stinky-old-furniture smell.

What great fun!  If I was a cat, I'd want to sleep in there for sure (when it's open, of course).   What did you attach the fabric and fur with?  Did you remove all the hardware and then reattach it?  The outside looks like it came that way and was treated really, really well.

HA!  I just scrolled down to have another look before posting this and saw a cat in the mirror!  Apparently a cat does want to sleep in there!

Oooo!  Neato! Do you think that fabric works better than paper would at conforming to the shape on the bottom of the plate?  I've been wanting to decoupage on glass since way before I joined, but haven't had the nerve to try as I'm afraid of wrinkles, tears, etc.

I haven't read the whole post, but what about "We've all settled in for a long winter's nap" (or the accurate quote)?

Smashing, simply smashing!  And it looks like that red is super flattering to you... you're glowing!  (and not in the camera flash way)

heathersy,

Having read your reply and then mulled it over, I think that I would have to go paint, too.  It's interesting that a craft's environmental impact is so location-specific and not just when considering the impact of shipping.  I am lucky enough to  live in one of the recycling capitals of the US and can actually recycle empty aerosol cans weekly at the curb on the same day as trash collection.  My recycling far outweighs my trash during the part of the year that my cats live with their dad, even.  Of course, there are so many layers to the impact all along the supply and chain that one could easily never actually make anything, because of all the time spent figuring out which is the least impact and sometimes that's comparing apples and oranges (water use vs. landfill space, etc.).

That said, I can't wait to see your ornaments!  Have fun with your dinner!

That turned out really cute!  But, what in the heck is a webworm?  I get the shivers just imagining such a thing!  And I'm a lady who's been letting a handicapped spider (she's down to 6 legs) live in one of my sinks for about a month (she lets me clean around her) so that's saying something.

Ooooo!  Shocked  I've thought about starting a "what can we make out of yogurt cups?" thread here and perhaps now I don't need to, because that's such a cool idea, heathersy!  I like the idea of the plastic paint, but I also like the perhaps-lower-impact idea of decoupage.  Of course, the plastic painted version could go outside on trees and gutters, etc.  Hmmmmm.  At this time I don't have any yogurt cups, because I am able to recycle them locally, but not at the super-handy curbside like most of the other recyclables.  I'm bookmarking!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
