I was in the Secret Santa swap this past December, and noticed that fishstix43 had requested tie dye t-shirts. Now, I've wanted to try tie dying again as I'd read up on some techniques since the last time I'd tried. So, my brain goes "hey, someone wants a tie dye shirt! I should make... one..."

Which turned into 17+ tie dye projects over two nights.

I kept this one Smiley

This one was for my niece's birthday:

I sent these two to fishstix43:

I bought a couple of unlabeled scarves at the thrift store, and they held dye in incredibly different ways:

Also picked up a handful of bandanas to practice on, one of the heart ones went to fishstix as well:

And of course, more shirts!

I had so much fun making all of these and am itching for a chance to do it again. I'll be scouring the thrift stores and sale racks for cool pieces to dye!

As I understand it, three owners of our newish house have left up this laundry room:  Quilt like stripes painted on the walls and foam sheets cut into tshirts hanging on clothes pins, and random miniature sink, long mirror.  But it just wasn't our style.  Previous owners had ten kids, so I can imagine another sink would be welcome, but we don't need a baby sink.  Maybe if it was a deep utility sink it would be different, but it had to go.  In its place we put our new mudroom!  ....only a year in the works.  Embarrassed

We started with demo of the old sink and working the pipes back into the wall.

Took out the old cabinets that wouldn't let us have the pedestals for our washer and dryer.

Mirror and shelves came down.  Primed and painted.  Granite Gray.

Found some cabinets that would fit better with our pedestals, but I wanted white.

Started a build in place bench, so it would fit perfectly to the sink size already cut into the floor.  That's all DH, I'm just the painter.

Starting the back wall.


and with everything in my house, a little Harry Potter flair.

I love it!

There's a fun meme that has cats of all sizes trying to fit into things called "if I fits I sits".  We've got cats and we end up saying it all the time when our weirdos try to get into tight shapes.  Well I took this and flipped it for an occamy.  Occamys are known to be choranaptyxic, meaning they grow or shrink in order to fit available space.  In Fantastic Beasts we see one fill a whole attic and then shrink down to fit in a teapot.  Thus, if they sit they will fit hehe.

Made this pic with my new blending pens and vinyl cut words, about a 5X7.  First time I've used the pens, so I'll do better with practice, but a fun trial run.

randomly googled cute meme

woohoo look at me with fast internet back. I have been going crazy with speeds of, wait for it...0.5meg. Arrgh, but the Mr internet fixer arrived today. 44meg baby

And I baked something, it was simple, but it is the closest thing I have gotten to a craft in weeks. So here you go (delicious, easy, no equipment needed)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Head Mistress challenge Dec

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: chocolate orange shortbread
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: from Jamie Olivers 15 minute meals. I am currently treating myself with lots of carbs, chip butties, crisp butties, bread of all description. But I was craving something home baked, so this was fast and easy. From this recipe. https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chocolate-recipes/chocolate-orange-shortbread/ I didn't bother melting chocolate chips separately, I just put them on top when the shortbread came out of the oven and smooshed them a bit when they melted. There are both dark and light chips on here.

Audio, you are the Cricut Master! Wow. I really, REALLY need to dig my up and figure it out. Sooooo much cool stuff can be made with these cutting machines!

YEY Year of the Dog! It's my year, too. I made it by just 4 days! I made this "meme" thingy for Delia's figure skating outfit for funsies! (not counting as a craft, of course)

I stitched these up for the Ongoing Hoopla Along. This months theme was happy and they look like happy little foxes!

I used digital designs from Le Petite Market on Etsy for the patterns. Thanks for turning me on to them kittykill!!!
