recycled milk jug storage

(click image to enlarge)

I got this craft idea in my inbox yesterday from Curbly via this site. After a nice hot cocoa I was able to finish up a half gallon plastic jug and test it out! Wow, so fun and easy! I want to make a whole collection now in different sizes. I opted for a snap instead of hook and loop (Velcro) from the original instructions. Because snaps are at least 10% classier. Maybe even 12% classier. I used Dritz snap pliers to attach the snap and to poke the holes on the flaps and Tim Holtz Scissors to cut out the plastic. I highly recommend those scissors, cuts through plastic and leather like butter I tell you.

Cord Clutter Update

Not perfect, but definitely better than what was there 3 years ago.

The end solution:

undershelf basket from the container store to hold my power strip and modem.


Cute leaf zip ties from Lufdesign. You can't tell from the picture, but I used these to bundle the wires. I first saw this awesome product design on BloodyBunny's photostream. She has the good stuff :) and she makes nice things too, like this reflective ankle cuff that I purchased from her Dawanda shop not too long ago:

sweetie face case®

I made this case to try out the Timmie Hook-Up pattern fabric. The red printed more orange than the original design but overall I'm happy with it. I need to remember to make sure that the colors I choose are more easily reproducible next time.

I am going to use it for a cocoon lining first to see how it looks! Whee!

Playing with patterns again.

I call this one Timmie Hook-up. I'm thinking about using this design for a Timmie jacket lining.
