Ah-mazing! I NEVER would have known that's what the shoes looked like before you painted them. I would pay good money for those shoes! Super cute!

Amazing job! I especially love the long, dangly ones! I would definitely wear those! What does your grandmother do that she has so many cool gears and things hanging around?

This is too darn cute! I might just have to take this idea and use it someday with a few lucky kiddos!

Very Cute! I hope you get your bead spinner soon! Before I got mine, I made 3 hydrangea flower heads and thought I'd never make another flower again. Now I look forward to it because I get to spend more time designing and forming the flowers instead of stringing one bead at a time!

I have no idea how you would even begin but people make beautiful dollhouse furniture out of pop cans. I am not sure how it would turn out with such skinny, tall cans. But if you managed to make them, your girls might have a fun time painting them and playing with them. Lovesclutter is right though. You would have to be careful with the edges because it would be sharp.

Does anyone have any good ideas on how to turn a floppy disk into a drink coaster while preserving the picture on the floppy? My mom has been cleaning out her house and can't seem to throw these old floppy disks away because they have pictures of Disney characters on them! We could use them as is but I think the condensation would just run off of the floppy disk onto the table because there's nothing to soak up the moisture. Would some kind of ridge around the edge look silly? Or is there some kind of sealer that can be applied that is porous enough to suck up condensation? It would just be a shame to throw them away! They're cute and at this point, a valuable piece of ancient history!

I'm sad that some of you don't like bead spinners! I personally love mine but have only used it when it comes to wire for making french beaded flowers. I used to make them by stringing each bead by hand and it would take me near a half an hour to string enough beads to make a single petal!

It's all about the curved angle on the end of your wire. I've never had any luck with the actual hooks that usually come with the spinner. I have always quickly bent the end of the spool of wire myself. I have also found that the closer I hug the wire to the edge of the bead spinner, the more luck I have.

www.firemountaingems.com sells just about anything and I know they have silver color and pewter spacer beads very similar to those beads in the picture. They even have assortments of 100 for just under $20. They also do other finishes and even have handmade silver beads from the Hill Tribe in Africa (I believe). The other nice thing about them is that the more you buy, the bigger discount you get. Whenever I buy from them, I try to buy as much as I can because I usually end up getting some beads basically for free. Not to mention they will stuff a box full of any kind of bead for $5.

You could always glue it to a vase or stitch it to the front of a scrap book.
