Tell us about yourself!
I know many who do...my family had 2 great losses this year already. My husband and my younger sister...many have lost loved ones this year. We can all use all the hugs we can get nowadays.
I wish I could make these, I know a lot of people who could use one, myself included! It is a sweet idea. Thank you for sharing it.
Your Very Own Little Pocket Hug
Quill Pen & Ink
Hello, it is a lovely set. I've wanted an infinity calendar for a long while...I don't have the skills to make this, but may try with some wood...a question, though...why two 0's? There are no dates that have 2 zero's in them...could one of them be made a '9'? Since there are only 10, 20, and 30 needed in a calendar, if the zero is on the opposite die, wouldn't that work? Blessings~
Hmmm, I'm thinking a 3-5 gallon water bottle, hose from a fish tank air line, silicone...so I can leave my dog alone for a whole day and he won't run out of fresh water...hmmm. Thank you!

If you decide to make them for sale, I'd like one, if I can afford it, lol. Very nice. Thanks for sharing, it's fun reading these even though I have no tools, skills in this field, materials...but I could put one to use. :) Blessings!
I would use the brackets that the satellite or cable TV/Internet people use to hold a cable to the side of your house...I bought plastic ones on Amazon, one Internet guy used similar to bring one cable in, another used aluminum ones. You could pop rivet them to the can after putting them over the wire of the dish drainer or you could screw them to a piece of wood from the inside of the can outward, using the screw that comes with it. Blessings!
Thanks for the reply. I don't know some of the stitches you mentioned...maybe someday, but for now, I'll admire your handicraft. Blessings!
I LOVE this! I have the pegboard and was wondering how I would be able to make the best use of it...I've been using plastic baskets, less than ideal. This will help me figure a way to put my drill, impact wrench and so much more up also, as I can build custom 'holsters' for them, though I might add more of the 'L' hooks to the back of heavier items. Thank you for sharing this, I Will be making us of the idea. Blessings and health to you. :)
Pegboard Tools Organizer
I don't think I could make one of these, for a variety of reasons, not the least is that I am caregiving for my disabled and failing husband at home, full-time...but I sure would love someone to make one of these for me! It is adorable, a card that would surely go on my 'card wall' though I think I would get a shadow box to help preserve it...oh, this would brighten my day!!! It brightens it to see it. THANK YOU for sharing this adorably sweet card idea.

I like this indestructible, thanks for sharing it.I have a couple ideas that might make things simpler, first, roll your cookies out on parchment paper, cut out the shapes there and remove the excess, leaving the cookie there to help prevent stretching and deformity. You can slide the parchment paper onto a cookie sheet and it will bake easily there.The second tip is for your bases. Instead of making a triangle cutter and potentially cutting yourself in the process, use a circle and cut it in half, notching it out where needed at the top of the curve. (or, if you have it, use a half-circle cutter). It will work just as nicely, and will save your fingers from slices. Or, take a square cutter, and use it with the sides 'shaved down to get the triangle shape if you prefer that. Yes, yo…

Yes, you would need to cut out the hole to match the piece, but it would also work fairly simply to do compared to making a cutter.Blessings, this is a neat gift to give the chess fan in your family, and you get to eat the pieces when done. No muss, no fuss. Brilliant.

Amazing idea. I can make this small and dainty enough for a woman's watch...you don't often find a woman's pocket watch...I don't think I've ever seen one. My wrist isn't that small, but a watch feels heavy on me and though I've worn one in yesteryears, I cannot bear to now. It would be a great help to have my watch set up like this...I have fishing gear I can raid to get the connection too. ;) I also have some small but stronger clips of a dog leash type, might go with one of them for more safety. Thank you every so kindly for posting this...I think it is time to get a new watch battery after all! Blessings!
This is brilliant! I am in awe of the creativity of it. Wow, I thought it would be epoxy putty, but this is less expensive, faster done and wow! Thank you for sharing this with us. Blessings!

I also saw another video where a former RN said using pellon worked in the same manner. I had some pellon, so have made a number of masks using it...I made the Olson style. Sending some to of them to family that are high risk due to illness or exposure (RN, PT, Essential Worker, etc.)
These are beautiful! Thank you for sharing them with us, enabling us to have one as well. Blessings!

We bought 4 of these lanterns at the Off Price Store - a local chain that sells things at a discount. Mine still work, two years later...but my husband is disabled and dropped his, and pieces have broken loose...the top still works but the bottom doesn't. I'm thinking we could turn the bottom portion into a 'safe place' with that lamp, and should the other three also have issue, we can make more than one...sorry yours didn't last well. Glad you have a new use for it. Blessings!

Lovely! Wish my woodworking skills were up to the task of making one (a bunch!). These truly are lovely garden trugs. Blessings! Maybe I can find someone with the skills to make me some...I surely hope so!
I love this idea! This is something I can do, as soon as I get the stabilizer. I can make them to fit the cubby style 'closets' in my motor home and they will fit, rather than trying to find ones commercially to work. This is one of the most practical things I have seen here, it is doable without reams of special tools, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Blessings.

Awesome shack, thank you. My son mentioned to me two days ago, let the neighbor know that next year, he won't be tapping your trees, Mom. He's planning to do it. We have about 8 maples in the front, more on the side and in the back, so we have plenty from which to draw upon. We live next to a sugar maple stand as well and they have a higher tech setup, but they've also been using our trees out back...well, we'll see how long that continues too. In the meantime, great setup. I've sent the link to my son, we'll see what happens. I can just taste that rich dark sweet syrup now....yum! Blessings!
While we don't often get the 'fruit' of those trees, our neighbor's grandfather does plow the end of our driveway, where the town trucks bury us. As I am a senior, and my husband and I disabled, that's a huge help, so it's been kind of a 'thank you' to the whole family. On the other hand, my son has been working on my lawn and garden tractor to fabricate a snow blower from old parts, and he says I won't need our neighbor's help for that in the future as we've done in the past, but regardless, since we aren't able to tap the trees, at least someone has had the blessing from them. :) Blessings to you on your tapping also.
Thanks for your kind comments. I don't know of any clubs or the like in our area, pretty rural Northern New England...but we'll see what the future brings. :) Blessings
These are pretty. I don't have the equipment or materials (other than cardboard) to make them, so I will not be sharing anything like it but I think what you have done is wonderful. So many brilliant minds here creating things...thanks for sharing and bringing a smile to my heart with your offerings today. Blessings on your work.

No, I have no experience with a solar powered fan. As to the shavings, you wouldn't need a lot, just enough to pull the moisture from things quickly. Ever notice that when a dog goes, the odor is strong at first but as it dries, the odor recedes? Or when a farmer spreads things on a field, once dried no odor, but a rain comes and the stench? That happens for human manure too. It just needs to be dried out and then low/no odor. Blessings!
The odor comes from moisture. If you can get the moisture to drain further and have just the solids in the pit, with some shavings or other agents to dry it, the odor will be minimal. Maybe a 'French drain' with leach field for the urine and the solids covered by the shavings? For composting toilets, they separate the solids and the liquid, virtually no odor. Just a thought...Blessings!

I've seen little cutters for making these, never been able to afford to purchase them, wondered how I could make them just the same. Thanks for your instructions! Now I shall create with some gluten-free gingerbread cookies, and I can eat them too. :) I think having them all winter long will be a delight for family and guests. Blessings!

We've made this with both chocolate and carob powders, with honey, stevia and maple syrups, all work well. We used almond milk and soy, almond tastes a bit richer, but the soy was fine too. And yes, we've held some over till the next day and it still tasted delicious. Makes a wonderful frosting also. I plan to add a little peppermint extract next time, wanting the mint taste with it. Going to make avocado mint shakes with almond milk for St. Patrick's Day. I am sure it will rival the ones that the local fast food chain makes, and I'll be able to drink it - I am allergic to dairy now. Blessings!
Thanks! I have a number of these that the 'stems' have broken off of, and now I can put them to good use. By the way, if they stop working after a few months/years, just replace the battery with a rechargeable one and you're good to go again. Mine use AA batteries.
