1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / diy terrarium/ aquarium floor with mini tute (pic heavy) on: January 01, 2012 04:55:08 AM
This is zeus

He is a leopard gecko. He and his girlfriend, Bella, live in a terrarium in my boyfriends room. We adopted them from a friend and LOVE them. When we got them they were living on hard packed sand which is no the best for them. Geckos tend to ingest the sand and get sick. So my bf and I set out to make a tiled floor. we wanted something that looked natural, was smooth and would retain heat. We are stationed in germany so we had to find our materials at the german version of home depot.

We settled on some grey flat rocks that came meshed together. I dont remember how much they were but they were reasonably priced.

I cleaned the bottom of the cage and put the rocks in to see how the would fit.
After that I used tile glue to glue down the rocks

After it dried I grouted it with a dark grey grout and covered it with a few coats of  outdoor modgepodge to seal it.

It was a messy project but so worth it in the end. the floor has worked out great.

And here are the geckos enjoying their new fancy floor.

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / persoalizing a BP kit & stethoscope ideas? on: December 18, 2011 08:02:08 AM
For christmas my grandmother got me a bp kit with matching stethoscope  (a purple littman classic II)

i want to do something crafty with them to mark them as mine (my last stethoscope got stolen by a doctor who thought it was hers.)

I'm thinking I could embroider an anatomical heart on the bag but as far as the cuff and sthoscope idk what i should do. any one have any ideas, links to tutorials etc to help me out??

3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Antler Headband on: December 10, 2011 08:31:30 AM
So my friend and her dog Sam are red cross volunteers. they go to the Landstuhl Medical Center on the weekends and cheer up the patients.  This weekend she is going as Mrs Clause and wants Sam to be a reindeer. We live on an Army base in Germany so it was impossible to find antlers for him to wear. I volunteered to make em for her.  They are pretty messy but I'm pretty proud of them. I didn't use a tutorial, I just made it up as I went. I'm going to make another one to wear to my office xmas party. I will post pics of sam wearing it after they go. Sam is a big do with a big head and human size headbands fit him so this as perfect Cheesy

How I did it
Made a cardboard template.
Cut out felt x 4
Sewed each pair together right sides together
Turned inside out
Bent a thin wire in half and insert it in the antler
Stuffed the antler
Wired the antler to a store bought headband
Sewed antler around headband and wire
Covered rest of headband with felt.

Im so glad I put the wire in, it makes the antlers bendy. I made sure there was no pokey bits of wire incase Sam decides it makes a better chew toy than hat.

ps: was this the right board for this project? I guess i could post it in pet related but this is a human or pet project...

And her is the picture of sam wearing the antlers
