Tell us about yourself!
I used dental floss to hem a pair of slacks. Now I know where to keep my needle.
Wait until you do this in a WAFFLE IRON!
Styrofoam insulation.panels are sold at home stores, we used that, but corrugated cardboard made the wood stove glow bright red. Almost as scary as burning old tires!
We buy styrofoam insulation at the lumber yard. There is no corrugated cardboard insulation vecause it is extremely flammable. We had a wood stove, and burning some things made the thing GLOW. Corrugated cardboard burns VERY HOT and the stove would turn red and the cobwebs near the ceiling would catch fire.
Note, pkease do not use this for contraband. LOL
Easier yet--take a piece of paper, and fold it around a teaspoon of salt. I like to fold opposite sides into thirds over the salt, because after the second pair of sides are folded in, one end can be tucked into the other, closing the packet. Then when I need a pinch, I can open the paper and pinch away, saving the rest for later. The best part is, this is so tiny and thin, it can go anywhere. You can use gourmet seasonings any place you like
About 20 years ago, I converted a kid's soft side lunch box into a camera bag. Not only did it look nothing like a camera case, but I only needed to add a partition, as the insulation was enoigh padding outside.
Pockets! They make me happy. Warm hands, a place for my keys, and keeping my phone handy. What deviant decides to make any pants without pockets in the first place?
I believe that an item is worth nothing to you unless it gives you joy. If you choose to alter an old thing to create a beautiful piece that touches your heart, that might be preferable to leaving it in a sorry state just in case you can sell it. A collector does not own a piece if it is in YOUR possession. I choose not to give these snobs power over MY property.
3d printing filament or weedeater line. The tips can be melted round with a lighter.
This looks like the ideal way to treat the imported junk that you find at garage sales, or an el cheapo gift that cannot be returned.
Now I know what to do with that stupid shirt that was labeled the wrong size.
A nice looking project. Wood screws could be used to attach the bottom instead of brad nails for structural strength. Pre-drill to avoid splitting.
White Formica, not glued to anything, aluminum foil, any mirror--even acrylic, will work like white board. I used the front of the fridge, but had to use a white Mr. Clean sponge to get it off.
Ooh! These would be awesome with my brother's home made remoulade.
I like to heat the milk and butter in the microwave, and mix in the powder before adding to the pasta. I also add a nice, big glop of sour cream with the other additions.
Rice krispies treats?
Unless you make cream cheese icing, just eat them naked.
I prefer transparent containers. Peanut butter jars, nut or popcorn jars from Target, animal cracker jars from Sam's Club, and various sizes of Mason jars. I only buy the latter when they are reduced price. Masons can be microwaved, and are great for leftovers.
We have done the same thing--love the effect. Safety note: the shiny side is very slippery when wet, so flip the stepping stones over.
I read about a lady who made booby flasks to cheer up her sister, who had breast cancer. She and her hubby could tipple at the game, which was quite cheerful for both.
your little helper is so cute!
Some people call them "gauges".
these look so wedding-y.
I don't mind lending a coin at Aldi. The prices are awesome, and their gluten-free selection is incredible.
Why are Michael's balls so expensive? One can only guess . . .
If those cases were about an inch longer, you could put an insulin pen inside, plus swabs and pen needles. Rats!
I make ganache in my coffee cup--just enough to super-charge my coffee. I put a single layer of 60% dark chips in the bottom of my mug and pour heavy whipping cream to just about cover the chips. I then nuke it until it is steamy and stir like a maniac. Yum. Sometimes, I just skip the coffee.
My tongue says bacon. There's always room for bacon.
Save those yolks for some awesome egg noodles! Otherwise, you can feed them to your cat--they love egg yolk; and it is good for them.
Woodpeckers are carnivores. They drill through wood to get the insects inside. Baby birds would be a bigger meal for way less work.
Since beans do not cook properly if they are too old, these outdated beans will work quite well.
This method works wonderfully! I have done it to a few pants, but when I added pockets to a pair with FAKE front pockets, it was a DISASTER. Women's clothes designers SUCK! I need a vest with pockets, to wear with all my pocketless trousers.
You are such a meanie. Kitties need a nice, clean place to stretch out and snooze., and dogs can't bother them on the roof. The sooner little scratches appear, the sooner we don't go nutzo over every little ding--or summer hail storm. Life is nicer when you let it be.
Bird doo and tree sap can happen to anybody's laundry, but we lived on the route for SAC refueling practice. Jet fuel and refueling lube are nasty!
Yum. All it needs is a drizzle of heavy whipping cream, unsweetened.
MDF is OK as long as it is covered up, (unattractive) kept absolutely dry, and is not expected to withstand angular or concentrated force. Think blocks of sawdust and school glue. Know its limitations, and you can avoid disaster.
Such a beautiful "helper"!
Awesome idea to use dishwasher detergent to bleach! Using the copy machine is interesting, though expensive. We have always used the photo emulsion method to fill our screens.
We have a beautiful cat who likes to play with whatever small creatures she can catch. She plays with them until they are "broken". Nature is good.
So creative, so weird, so amazing!o
Since the nylon net is so wide, I would serge it into a tube, offsetting the corners by the width to be cut. Then I could cut the "yarn" all in one continuous strip.
These would make the cutest earmuffs!
Mice randomly urinate wherever they are, and defecate everywhere, ruining everything. I once STOMPED one to death on the sidewalk. It felt GREAT!
We have a beautiful half Siamese cat who does what is in her nature. When she catches a tiny playmate, we let her outside Since she is well-fed, we do not know if any of the filthy little parasites survive her playtime, but she chooses if they may live. In any case, they are outside, away from our pantry.
This looks so COOL, I want to make a mold and force the pumpkin to grow into it.
They also have beef stock paste. Makes great gravy and punches up my meatloaf. I use some in my stroganoff, too.
As kids, my brother and I took turns cranking the churn, a gallon Mason jar with wooden paddles and a crank. Our mom later used her Mixmaster to make butter. Cream from the Brown Swiss cow made the prettiest golden butter. She was also the gentlest, most beautiful cow.
I LOVE it! Just too cute!
I love these made with shredded Parmegiano-Reggiano.
I found a recipe for sous vide dulce de leche that uses 1 cup jelly jars with canning lids.
Aw, this is so adorable!
so is this possible with sous vide?
It also grows in Ukraine, where it is called "kalina", and is an element in folk medicine--and is considered a "tonic".
Peanut butter and mayonnaise are packed in various size jars; which can be clea ed and are perfect for snacks or leftovers. The larger opening makes filling/cleaning a breeze.
I like to brown a couple pounds of ground beef, drain, and repack in zipper bags. A quarter cup added to a serving of vegetables turns it into a main dish.
My eyes BURN so painfully when cutting onions that I keep a pair of swim goggles in the kitchen--just for cutting onions. NO MORE TEARS !
Ooh, hollow log sections in the yard, must buy marshmallows.
The one I saw was in my husband's family, in a village near Ternopol, Ukraine.
the top is an excellent place to sleep when ill or arthritic.
I wondered, "What are okuras?" Okra, yeah, but what size? Some are tiny, others HUGE.
Embroidery floss works as well as the original darning cotton, and it comes in many colors. You can use all six strands or any portion to match the sock. My dad darned his socks, and so did my father in law.
I do not have the special silicone tool you have, but might try this with pans I already own. Thirty bucks is a lot to spend for a baking dish.
Can you provide a link to a clear image of the original art/directions?
They look delicious, but metric only? No fair!
You don't have to kill a rodent yourself. Simply offer it to a hawk, owl, or snake. Nature is wise and balanced.
Dryer lint is flammable, so it makes great fire starter. (Add oil or wax) Hmmm, a doll of boss or other nemesis plus fire place/pit equals a bit of fun!
A neighbor used a hole saw to make multiple pockets for flowers. His stump was awesome!
Acetone nail polish remover works like a charm for Sharpies--even on fabrics. But NEVER on Rayon!
This works for any bread, and the results are heavenly. Browning bread and butter together is delicious!
Try raisin bread. Toasting brings out the natural sweetness.
A perfect plan for the "dummy" cards received in the mail.
No recipe. I would have liked to try this. (Sad face)
Nice, recipe is not on Instructables. Lovely!
I you don't have a walking foot, tissue paper strips between the vinyl and the regular foot work very nicely. If needed, you can put more tissue under the vinyl as well.
Has this ever been done near hogs?
This just looks like so much fun. Meatloaf, mashed spuds, bacon bits.
I'm thinking meatloaf and sweet potato m
I use a colander to separate the beef and the fat. A metal or glass pan will catch the grease to keep it out of the drain. If I want the meat even leaner, I can run hot water through it. Plenty of fat in the cheese.
I meant pets, a young cat and an old dog--hence the washable part.
Thank you for this. Hubby and I just invested in two nice office chairs, and our pts like to sleep in them. Plus, the cat likes to claw. I just found the light quilted cotton to provide washable covers to protect the fake leather underneath. Now I know what to do next.
it's always better to go for less than perfect, to discourage theft.
Don't feel bad about the three year delay. The can opener was not invented until 100 years after cans were. (((Them must have been some OLD beans!)))
Pressure cookers are amazing. My mom used to can beef in hers. Easy roast beef sammies for school lunches. I just made jellied pork hocks in my electric pressure cooker. Yum.
White will always show something. Black is a better choice.
Dry socks and inside shoes after being caught in the rain.
Cut inch-wide strips to use as pony tail ties or use around pant leg when riding a bicycle. Also good for holding stuff together, like electric cords, xmas lights, tomato plants, etc.
When they are turned off, all the water drains out. This way the valve will not freeze and burst.
nothing happening until next spring, sorry.
This sounds like exactly the solution for our garden. I might lay a large glass gem over the top hole and glue a less pretty one over the bottom hole.
Sometimes when factory workers retire, they toss their steel-toed boots over a line outside the factory.
