Picture of Carleyy's Blog Round Up - August 2nd
Thanks for checking back to my weekly blog round up.  I love searching the web to bring you awesome projects and inspiration from other sites and blogs.  Most of the projects I make are inspired by other peoples projects.  So whether you are searching on instructables or another website, think about how you can apply the tips and ideas you see to make your own cool crafts!

Don't forget about the weekly challenge.  I created this challenge to see how cool ideas can be interpreted into DIY projects.  Anyone who participates gets a special patch.  ChrysN was the first to post to the group with Simple Lego Necklace and received a patch!

Step 1: Re-purposing

I have found so many great projects and inspirations on dornob.  Here are 5 awesome Wine Bottle Lamp Projects

Proudly display your baking creations with these professional looking cake stands found on craftynest which has great re-purposing tutorials.


A great re-purposing project doesn't have to be created from your own unused goods.  Consignment shops, thrift stores, yard sales and estate sales have tons of hidden treasures for your re-using pleasure!  Re-nest put together a list of 10-common thrift store finds that you should look out for.

i've got the idea, but no the cash to do it. The idea is make something like Dyson Air Multiplier stuff (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gChp0Cy33eY&feature=related) in a small size and then put a resistance of a hair dryer in some glass walls and then you got it.
the same could be used to create self refridgerated soda cans

I like your weekly roundup. Well written, sleek things shown. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! I never really liked writing in school, but I really like writing about things that interest me. How great and sleek looking is that toaster. Ironically my nickname in high school was toast. It started out at carlitos, then carley toast, then just toast, random fact about me.

But where did carlitos come from? And why are there two ending -y- ?
Carleyy (author)  laxap5 years ago
Carlitos came from a spanish soap opera we watched in spanish class in high school. The double y came from me thinking it would be cool to add an extra y??
Funny, when you click the link of the wine bottle thing. You'll see that the last picture of the lighted bottles with the picture of Elvis is actually the front picture of an instructable here!

Everything comes back to instructables ;)
