Excellent post and loving your bee-zy-ness.  Tongue

My husband and I are planning a move to the countryside soon and beekeeping is definately on the agenda, so it was good to see how someone else is tackling it too.

Also, love your blog. I gave it a big thumbs up on stumbleupon  Wink

And for Kriminie and anyone else that would like to know, here is a brief tute:

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Workout pants to simple swimsuit (now with tute) on: July 03, 2009 07:25:49 AM

I moved from Australia to Denmark about a year and a half ago, and when I left, I had to get rid of a lot of clothes and such. One of the things that went was my swimsuits. I figured that it would be a rare occasion that I would get to swim here in scandinavia, and if I did want to go for a splash, I could just buy a swimsuit.

Well it's hot here now, and the husband and I have swimming on our minds. But finances mean that shopping for a new set of swimmers is kind of out of the question for now.

So I grabbed an old pair of workout pants a bit like these:

and cut, cut, snip, cnip, stitch, stitch later and I now have these:

Thanks for the props guys!

I bet you can reach down and use the mouse mid-tablet-ing, too. That's gotta be pretty handy in itself.

Actually I can, its sturdy enough to hold a bit of pressure too. I'm absolutely loving it, and cant for the life of me work out why I didn't think of it before.

My desk is tiny, and considering the amount of time I spend at it, I really have been trying to make the most of what I have.

One of the things that has been bugging me a lot lately is the fact that everytime I want to use my graphics tab, I have to shift my mousepad onto the top of some books behind the laptop (the mousepad sits on top of the graphics tab you see). It looks messy and precarious up there, and if I bump the table and make the mouse move while I'm in the middle of using the graphics tab, it can lead to some messy digi-paintings as well.

The other day I came up with a solution: 'The Hanging Shelf of Babylon!!!' - Dont ask me why I called it that....I just did. Basically, its a fabric shelf, reinforced with strong cardboard, that hangs from the underside of my desk so I can quickly slide the mousepad (with the mouse) into and out of it with ease.

Here are the promised pics.

This is how the desk looks in normal 'pfaffing-about-on-the-intertrons' mode:

The awesome Hanging Shelf of Babylon. Quite a simple sewing job and attached to the desk with some sturdy broad-headed nails:

And here is how she works, graphics tab ready:

I know its a bit anal to get cheesed off over something as simple as where your mousepad sits when your not using it, but it was really getting my goat. Now my goat is free and happy and munching grass in the field with it's goaty friends.

good luck with your Danish classes, I'm just about to pass level 4 myself

Awesome!! I'm on level 4 now, just passed my level 3 exam last month. They asked if I wanted to go for my next one before summer holidays but I dont think I am quite there yet.

I have actually just finished 2 weeks "sprogpraktik" in a danish workplace. It's amazing how much better your danish becomes when you ae forced to use it for 8 hours a day non stop hehehe.

My husband and I are on the edge of the city centre, just next to Trjborg.
