41  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Turn 6 pack holders into recyled storage caddies on: January 10, 2010 10:46:02 AM
Our the bottles in our mustard and hot sauce collection flopped all over the shelf in the refrigerator door like drunken sailors. I pulled out a 6 back holder from the recycling bin and used it to organize my refrigerator.

I used an empty butter tub to put all of all of those sample sizes of jellies and the occasional condiment packet in one place so we can actually find them to use them.

Since then, I've used 6 pack holders to corral paints in my craft room, TV remote controls, and our Wii controllers. I also clipped the cardboard that holds the bottles in place in a couple of 6 pack caddies and turned them into cleaning caddies. That way they can corral a small bottle of cleaner and the bunch of cut up old towels and t-shirts left over from projects that I use as cleaning rags.

Since all of these 6 pack holder turned organizers live in cabinets or the fridge I haven't bothered to pretty them up by covering them with paper or fabric but you certainly could. If you don't have a craft beer hobby like my husband and I do, you can use cardboard coffee cup holders from a coffee shop.

I'm loving that tin tile backsplash!

I love the funky retro look of your kitchen. Especially the wall color. Great job!

It stinks that you lost all of your stuff but you made a bad situation better with this room decor. Love the bench!
45  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Balloon Boy Costume! on: October 30, 2009 08:50:06 AM
Every year my husband and I take our dog to a charity Halloween Pet Parade. Blitzkrieg usually wears his namesake Ramones bandanna or his doggie backpack because he's not into costumes. This year I decided to do something a little different. I'm a news junkie and decided to make Blitzkrieg a Balloon Boy costume!

I played around in Photobucket to make the costume stand out a little from the busy background.

The materials I used and gratuitous cute doggie photo.

I took the box apart and put it back together inside out so the writing wouldn't show. I tied it to Blitzkrieg's carrier with some yarn because I didn't have string. For the balloon, I covered a margarine tub with foil, wrapped more foil around the pillow packing, and added some yarn as ropes. My husband carried the balloon and I pulled Blitzkrieg in the carrier/box in the parade. Blitzkrieg was a good sport because he'd much rather walk than ride in his carrier.

It's a whole lotta wrong.  Grin

46  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Scarecrow Flamingo Cozy on: October 06, 2009 08:44:45 AM
I have a metal flamingo on my front porch during the summer. It's fall and Mr. Summer Flamingo is looking a little out of place. I did a little rooting around and found 2 scarecrow quilted door panels that I bought as never sewed (they were supposed to be Christmas gifts ages ago - oops!) I went through my stash and found just enough batting to use for the project. Add some buttons from my Grandmother's button box, some leftover felt and raffia and I came up with this:

I didn't want to hang my scarecrow up on a door like it was originally intended. I sewed some sticks to the back of the panel and attached him to my flamingo with wire and twist ties for fall.

Amazing. The yellow paint really makes it pop.

I love the cabinet with the fold up table! I can't believe someone just gave that away.

I wanted to do this with my husband's Nat Geo maps but he wouldn't let me. I put tissue paper on the walls instead.

I'd casually tell your friend that you made this pillow because he might want to buy one for someone else at the bookstore. Smiley
