Does it help keep the food in the dish warm? I want an insulated carrier. It this works, then I might just make one instead of buying one  Grin

Brilliant! I love it.
33  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Stenciled Flower Pot on: April 05, 2010 05:28:44 PM
My sister knows I have a thing for herbs. She got the painting talent in the family. She stenciled and painted this flower pot for me as a Christmas gift.



Isn't she talented? I posted it on Craftster because she doesn't have an account  Cheesy

She gave it to me with a couple of books on growing herbs in pots and with a few decorative jars so I can use them for dried herbs. It was an awesome gift!
34  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simple Case for Swanky Vintage Sunglasses on: April 05, 2010 05:17:43 PM
My husband noticed I admired and commented on a swanky pair of vintage sunglasses in a shop during our monthly gallery hop. He hopped on over to the store the next and bought them for me and gave them to me as a gift!



On a rainy bleach day, I had the itch to do a project but not much energy to take on a big one. Does that ever happen to you?

I went through my stash and found some fun flamingo fabric, ribbon, and shell beads. But them all together and you have a simple sunglasses case!


Enjoy!

Home Depot should have them. I found mine in the closet rod and organizer aisle.

I went to Lowes because it's closer to my house. I have to pass it to go to the Depot  Grin

I Looooove the pawprint buttons!
37  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Super Always Stay Up Shower Curtain Rod on: February 04, 2010 07:20:28 PM
I had a shower curtain rod that kept falling down. I replaced with a tension type rod with guaranteed stay up grippy tips.

That fell down too.

*sigh*

I went to Lowes - my second home after Joann's and bought some wooden closet rod hangers. I painted them the same color as wall color and used them to hang my shower curtain rod - again.



Now the shower curtain rod stays up and is so sturdy that I can use it to hang a load of laundry to dry on it. Bonus!

How did you attach the corks to the board so they stay stuck? Hot glue seems like it would eventually peel off.

That is the most awesome kid room ever! I would die for a room like that. OK even now as a supposed grownup.

Will you be my mom? Cheesy
40  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Renaissance Lord and Lady from the skin out on: January 10, 2010 11:15:54 AM
My husband and I performed at the Ohio Renaissance Festival for 8 years. Our last two years they cast us the the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of the village.

I made our costumes from the skin out and the hats on down. I drafted patterns for most of the items we wore.


The bodice of my dress is based on the Seal of the Goldsmiths. I can wear it with the top skirt and farthingale as shown or with the top skirt only. The ribbon ties and a hidden panel of non period velcro keep the skirt closed. The muff is vintage. My mother in law knitted the shawl. It isn't 100% period but the costume committee let me wear it anyway because it was close and it got very cold toward the end of the show.

I built my husband's costume from an Alteryears pattern. I covered a wool hat form to make his hat. I drafted the pattern for his shobe (the black cloak like thing.)

I did all of the beading by hand. Whew!

thanks for looking.
