1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pretty Little Hand Sanitizers (another classroom craft) on: August 09, 2010 04:44:44 PM
A long time ago I bought a bunch of tiny hand sanitizer bottles at Kroger. They are store brand, and not very attractive. I spruced up a few of them to put into my table markers/supply storage in my classroom for my students sharing supplies in the flu season(and all seasons).

The two on the left are hard to see in the picture.

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Classroom Table Markers on: August 09, 2010 10:52:23 AM
These used to be red Folgers Aromaseal containers. Now they are cute storage bins and table markers for my 4th grade classroom. I don't have one for table one yet. I must drink more coffee.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / I don't want any more menus crammed into my door!! on: April 25, 2009 02:15:17 PM
Because I don't want any more menus or other junk crammed into my door, I made this painted wooden door sign. None of my seasonal wreaths or wall hangings really make sense right now. I asked myself, self, what message would you like to give all year long? I decided on this. If it works, I'll let you know. Probably they will stay the same or even increase.

Oh and I live in an apartment. I don't have some beautiful house that I'm mucking up with such unwelcoming signs! Smiley
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Monster Snout for Penny on: April 21, 2009 03:31:31 PM
Penny loves chewing on empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. I love making things out of trash.

It is not all that crafty or work intensive, but here she is in her monster snout.

And wiggling around in a blurry pic on the ATTACK! (actually pretty haunting)
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / What to do with plastic lemonade cannisters (Part 2) on: April 11, 2009 08:50:29 PM
I made this at least a year ago, but I just got around to taking a picture of the finished product.

I have some pictures of the work in progress, but I need to find them.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / what to do with those plastic lemonade cannisters (with pictures) on: April 11, 2009 08:19:56 PM
This was inspired by lindsycarranza's awesome pringles can organizer: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241667.0

I was asking students to bring me pringles cans, but they didn't get around to it. Then I thought, pringles cans are very long and cardboardy. The plastic containers that powdered drink mixes come in would be perfect.

I will hang it on the wall in my classroom next week.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Obedience School Graduate on: August 07, 2008 06:05:13 AM
My sister's dog, Willow, graduated obedience school last night. We made her a little hat from card stock. The tassel is made from embroidery floss and there is a chinstrap made of yarn.

Better picture with the tassel in the front, after some amount of flailing

These were taken at Petsmart with my mother holding Willow in place. Even after her class, she is not very obedient. Wildness is her way.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / laying down the law, the bathroom law on: June 16, 2008 06:51:54 PM
I am not so proud of the craftsmanship here as I am the concept. My roommate and I, at one point, laughed ourselves to tears making it. Sometimes simply explaining the rules to your suitemates is not enough. Ours require visual reminders.

I hope it doesn't anger them more than our apparently unreasonable bathroom rules already do. Cheesy
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Hey outdoor brides, I've got a question for you. on: January 16, 2008 08:09:18 PM
I apologize if this topic has already been covered somewhere, I did not find it. For those of you with wonderful backyard or outdoor receptions:

What on earth did you do about parking?

I like the feeling of it, and I like the sort of money saving aspect if that is not just a false assumption. But really, what did you with all the cars? If this was a problem, did your solution to this problem end up costing you quite a bit of money?
10  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / I finally joined, it's good to be here! on: December 09, 2007 10:56:01 AM

I currently reside in the great state of Texas. I'm a college senior at Texas A&M University (Fightin' Texas Aggie class of 2008). I'm a history major, soon to be a high school history teacher. I look forward to finding ways to incorporate craftiness in my teaching career.

I love this site and I had been just reading it as a guest until I found the need to post a question about the awesome Connect Four calendar.

So now that I'm here, what is this "friend of crafter" business? and what does the "This Rocks" button do?

Thanks, you have all inspired me so much with your ideas during my period as a lurker.
