1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need more storage in bathroom on: March 18, 2013 03:15:39 PM

I have a bathroom just like this one (the house down the street if for sale) and I need more storage.
We are very handy people and could redo the bathroom ourselves but I think we need to get custom cabinets to fit the shape of the room. I would like to have shelving/drawers in the middle part but think it might be a lot of wasted space. Also building a cabinet on top of the counter.

Any thoughts or suggestions about storage under the sink areas?
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Owl Valentine Card with pencil on: February 05, 2012 06:41:14 PM

I wanted to make my own valentine cards this year for my students. I had several ideas on what I wanted to make and first thought of integrating a sucker with the card. I saw these pencils at Micheal's and this was perfect. We are always in need of pencils and they cannot get sick from them (well maybe if they chew on them long enough).
I was thinking of integrating the pencil into a butterfly, a rose, or a heart. Svgcuts just put these cute Owls and I googled some cute owl card sayings. I am very happy on how they turned out. The speech bubble is from the SCAL shape library.
I am going to put the to and from on the back.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tea/sugar wallet on: December 29, 2011 03:33:15 PM

For Christmas I try to make at least one item to give family and friends. Last year I made fabric tissue covers. This year I had to think of a new idea that would be easy to make. While on vacation some of my family members love Splenda and would carry the packets in plastic baggies and that was too tacky! Now they will carry it in style!
I could not find a pattern that did not have a button/snap/Velcro but decided to make this. It is so easy and if I get motivated to make a tute for it. The other fabric (with the red on it) on the front is where the flap goes. It holds the flap down and I have not had any sugar packets leave. It was originally just to hold sugar packets but it did fit a tea bag.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Harry Potter- Friends forever shirt on: July 14, 2011 07:01:58 AM
With the LAST Harry Potter movie this week I had to make a new shirt. My DH and I are seeing part 1 before then at midnight seeing part 2. I have had so many fun memories going late night to see Harry!

I saw this logo on Pinterest and knew this is what I needed. Cut it out on my Cricut with freezer paper and painted it on!
On the back I thought it was cute to have the HP7.


Back- Glows in the dark!


I am very happy with my shirt and cannot wait to show it off tonight! DH said no for matching shirts! lol  Roll Eyes
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Magic School Bus on: July 13, 2011 03:23:23 PM
One of my teacher friends is always showing Magic School Bus and we always joke she should be Ms. Frizzle for Halloween. I thought this would be cute for her wall at school.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Great Grandmothers sewing shadow box on: July 13, 2011 03:16:14 PM
My Great Grandmother gave me her old Sears sewing machine when she moved and when she died we ended up with her sewing box. She would keep it by her chair to store supplies. I have had such a fun time looking inside it and always find something I have never seen. I knew I would never use the scissors and had this extra shadow box. It did not take me more than 15 minutes to put this all up and looks so good in my craft room. I have taken the glass out of it for the picture.

Shadow box

Wonderful sewing box that is still full of good items. It fold out the same way on the other side.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Stumpwork... 3D box? on: April 22, 2011 04:43:05 AM
I thought of the coolest idea for my next hoop but having trouble getting the idea on the hoop. I want to have part of a 3D box come out of my hoop.

My DH and I made a 3D cube out of wire using one piece.
What fabric should I use if I was to wrap this wire structure?
Should I make the sides out of wire individually and then put them together?

I am up for any ideas or suggestions!  Grin I really would like to make this possible and not be another idea not finished!
