1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dog Bed Made From Suitcase on: September 01, 2011 02:21:56 PM
I found an old hard shell suitcase from Goodwill and transformed it into a comfy dog bed. The lid stays up so your pet can catch his/her z's and it can be shut when you're on the go. It has pockets for toys, food, blankets ect. I found a great looking pillowcase and got a nice new pillow for the bed part. I painted little travel signs on the lid and of course added a dog them. I Love New Yorkie, Welcome To Leash Vegas, Hollywoof California, and Mardi Paws. I hope you all enjoy it, my dog Jake has!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Garden Gazing Balls on: June 30, 2010 01:24:02 PM
I've been messing around with new ways to make bowling ball gazing balls. I made a Green Bay Packer helmet out of a football helmet I picked up at St. Vinny's for 99 cents and loved the way it came out. I also used the cracked marble method on the green and blue ball and baked alot of stones. I also coated a ball with sheet music and then covered it with stones, the notes magnified really well too. Lastly I found these glass curly stones and thought they would look kind of different as well. I hope you guys like them!! Lots of pics!

When I find my clocks they are flat wall clocks, super simple and plastic. I take off the plastic shell like cover, the front part that protects the clock face, usually I can just pop it off with a butter knife. I take off the hands of the clock by just pulling them off by hand, then the back clock gadget will come out most times, if not this can come out with a knife, you sort of pry it out of its holder if it has one. So I have my clocks hands separate from the clock motor deal, or the thing that the hands go on that keeps time. I work on my albums and just cut a circle hole with an xacto knife so the clock motor can fit through and put the hands in the right places and that's about it. I hope it helped a tad, it's sort of tricky to explain over a message board.

I've had the best luck finding them at Goodwill, they usually are $1.99 for basic wall clocks. They usually have quite a few of them to pick from so hopefully you can score some clock "guts" soon.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fish Vases on: September 05, 2009 12:32:22 PM
So I found these glass vases at Goodwill and thought they looked like fish so I cut out scales from different colors of tissue paper and Mod Podged them in random patterns and added some fine glitter and big goggle eyes. I hope you like them.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Book Clocks on: September 05, 2009 12:47:05 AM
So I love putting clock guts inside everything and I tried putting them in kids books and decorating them in a similar way I decorate my record albums with painted dots and such. The books are some sweet Goodwill finds, I really like them alot and hope you do too!

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Melted Bead Creation, First Try on: September 05, 2009 12:44:16 AM
So I decided to attempt to make a melted bead picture and wanted to do something that involved music so I picked on of my favorite bands, The Beatles, and went for the Yellow Submarine. I hope you like it! I'll have to add some pictures of it in the sunlight, it looks way fancier.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record Album Clocks on: September 05, 2009 12:12:30 AM
I've been making these record album clocks for a few weeks now as I find cool albums at the thrift store. I add some paint to jazz them up a little and then coat them with Mod Podge to seal them up and give them a nice shine as well. I add a clock mechanism and that's all there is to it. They each cost around $2 to make, sometimes less sometimes more, but I've found old wall clocks at Goodwill for 99 cents and I'll just rip the guts out and use them. They have turned out pretty cool so far, it's my first post so hopefully you guys like them, thanks! My Elton John one & Christopher Cross albums both have glitter, Elton's shades, and the flamingo & water and will have clocks soon
