71  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Rice Bags Turned Shopping Tote Bags! on: February 26, 2009 08:38:05 AM
The burlap rice bag came from Sam's Club (yeah, I know.) The tan rice bag came from one of the small international grocery stores we have here in town.

There's an indian restaurant here that sells their empty burlap rice bags for something like $1.00. You might check if you have a restaurant that might sell or give you their empty rice bags for super cheap instead of just throwing them away.

I had some empty rice bags that I put in the trunk of my car to use as shopping tote bags. They were small and the checkout girl at Meijer would give me the stink eye when she got to them at the bottom of my totebag stash. I decided to open them up with a seam ripper, add some fabric and make them the same size as the rest of my shopping tote bags.

The green fabric is from a set of cotton curtains that were so faded I couldn't donate them to Goodwill.




The muslin fabric I used for the sides of this bag and black fabric I used for the handles came from my fabric stash.



The last time I went to Meijer The Stink Eye Cashier wasn't there. But the cashier at Trader Joe's thought my bags were cool.
73  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Evil Dead Laundry Room on: February 17, 2009 11:27:55 AM
I never painted a wall before we bought our Condo. I figured it might be best to start with the laundry room because if I mess it up horribly no one would see it but me. I bought a can of paint from the Habitat Restore, unfortunately I didn't buy a tinted primer and promply ran out of paint. I grabbed a palm sander and tried distressing the wall to try to save the work I'd done or at least prep the walls for a new paint job.



I kinda liked it. And it gave me an idea. I grabbed all of my husband's Evil Dead Stuff and bunch of other red toys and action figures and made The Evil Dead Laundry room because doing laundry is an evil chore.

Then I made a new ironing board cover and draft dodgers for the room out of this fabric.



What do you think?

That's a great idea. Do you have dog stairs that they can climb up to their bed or can they jump that high?

It makes sense that Duke prefers burrowing under the covers, he's the doxie, right?

Those flowers are genius! They're such a cute addition to your little girls room.

If I had to de-uglify that much paneling in a house, I'd take a break and melt something too!  Cheesy

I drooled over a desk like that for my craft room. But the shelves, oh the shelves - amazing. Very professional!
79  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / No Slip Stay Put Draft Dodger with Flaming Skulls! on: February 10, 2009 07:11:53 PM
I noticed a draft coming from my pantry and coat closet that are on outside walls of my house. A draft snake would do the trick but they don't stay by the door after you open/close it. That is, unless you add a tab to the top of the draft dodger and use that to tack your draft snake to the door!




I stuffed my door snake with bottle caps and wine corks to make sure that it was heavy enough to stay close to the ground.



I sewed two tabbed door snakes together and use them on the door from my laundry room to my utility room.

80  COOKING / Dessert / Valentine's Day Shortbread on: February 04, 2009 10:07:14 AM
I wanted to give my Husband an extra gift for Valentine's Day because he is such an uber guy! The man likes my Scottish Shortbread so I decided to make him some and Valentine-ize it.



I used a chopstick to make the heart design. Awwww....
