    Leather Handbag

    This is really nice. Something I wish I had the talent for, since it is so hard to find the perfect purse. I like the way you included a d-ring at the end of the zipper. It is something I look for in a purse so that I can clip on a carabiner to keep track of my keys. No more digging inside the purse for them. I really like the colour combination you used. You should be proud.

  • Shy Mask That Shuts Up When It Sees People

    I am glad to see how creative people can be and what they can come up with in an emergency situation. Good job. Great post. The detailed instructions are wonderful. I live in Canada and our Prime Minister recently did a public announcement telling us that we need not wear a mask unless we are infected. He said that it will not help to control the spread of the virus for healthy people to wear masks. If anyone has heard differently in your country, please let me know. Thank-you.

    What I find to be really odd is that with such high numbers of people who (we have been told) have died of this virus, I have yet to talk to anyone here in Ontario who has lost a friend or family member. No one seems to know of anyone who has been touched by this personally, other than in the old age homes where the death rate is the same as for any other regular flu virus. Right now I am watching a Freedom March that took place yesterday in Vancouver, which is on our west coast. It is a very interesting time.

    I can't take credit for making the mask. It was made by Friedlc.

    Felting a Hippopotamus

    This is done so well, and looks so real. I like the way you mounted it. If you ever do a complete hippo, please post that too. This reminded me of the commercial from about 20 years ago about the House Hippo. I also now have an earworm of that Christmas song, "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas", but I am not likely alone. Thank-you for sharing.

    If you can't move the nails further apart, shorten the elastics until you get the pitch you want. I remember my mother making a very crude guitar for us when we were little out of an empty Kleenex box and elastic bands that ran over the opening in the box. We thought it was great.

  • Crocheted Spare Tire Cover

    I think this is beautiful. It reminds me of the fad from the 70's when we wore granny square vests over our blouses. I'm sure a lot of heads turn when your mom goes out for a drive. If you could get enough plastic shopping bags, in the colours you want, you could make one that doesn't absorb the rain. Different stores use different coloured bags and it may take a bit of "shopping around" to find the ones you like. Canadian Tire used to have large garbage bags available in orange, white, black, red, grey/silver and dark green. They were great for crafting, especially for wreaths at Christmas.

  • I Made a Dog Bed... for a Dog.

    The reason that your dog doesn't like the bed is probably because of the wheels you used. If you replaced them with locking wheels, the bed would stay in place when the dog got in or out of it. You could unlock the clip on the wheel to do your cleaning. It is a shame to have put so much work into a project and not have the pride of your dog using it. You get my vote for a job well done. It just needs to be doggy-proofed.

  • Instant Bug Bite Relief

    Here in Canada, I am able to buy a product called Skin-So-Soft bath oil from the Avon company. If I am going outside and think there might be mosquitoes around, I rub some of this scented oil on my skin and the bugs don't bother me. Another way that I used to keep bugs away was to take large amounts of Zinc. Be careful not to overload your system with too much. I have been told that I could have made myself sick if I had taken too much. I was taking about twice the recommended amount. The mosquitoes would be swarming and biting everyone but me.

    This also works like magic on bee stings.

It is basically two very long narrow pillow cases connected with a strip of material the thickness of the door. The foam tubes slip in on each side and there is a flap that folds over the open end. The flap is anchored with Velcro. I really like the idea of the rice though and if I ever get the time, I will definitely try it your way.

    An old welding tarp or truck tarp would be very durable and you would be sure to get all of those pine needles out of the house using it. Wrapping it around the tree would work but if it is headed for the garbage, you could slice an "X" in the center to accommodate the tree trunk. This could be re-used the next year. When summer rolls around, drape it over the patio table and put the umbrella up using the "X" shaped hole you cut in the middle. Let the kids decorate it for next Christmas. My favourite is the white stuffing that looks like snow. It would be a great effect with a miniature train running around the tree.

I usually rummage through Value Village stores, Salvation Army Thrift stores, and other second hand stores for costume pieces and treasures when we get ready for Hallowe'en. It is surprising how inexpensive some of those old ruffled shirts and velveteen jackets can be. They are great not only for Austin Powers costumes but also for pirate clothes. These are also great places to find leather items at affordable prices. If you are looking for something for Hallowe'en and it does NOT have to be in mint condition, the store owners will often set damaged/worn pieces aside for you that would normally be thrown in the trash.

    What type of wire are you using. Parrots can become very sick from the wrong wire.

  • Kitty-Litter Delta  -  DIY Kite

    Hi Jadem52; I noticed that there is a contest for "trash to treasure" and a lot of the entries are for kites made from stuff found around the house.

Do you know if there is an easy way to let these contestants know about "Sky Fishing"?

  • Kitty-Litter Delta  -  DIY Kite

    Hi Jadem52; I used to fly kites with my kids when they were very young. If you fly kites a lot, I have a great helpful hint for you. I used to take my kids "Sky Fishing". It gave the younger ones a lot more control over the kites. Just secure and load fishing line onto an inexpensive fishing rod and reel. Attach the kite to the other end of the line. When the wind picks up, release some more line with the push of a button. When the wind dies down, reel in the kite. It was so much fun for them, with less frustration and fewer kite crashes, because they were able to keep the kite in the air longer. Don't forget to secure the fishing line to the reel so that if you come to the end of the line, you don't lose the kite. This method is so much easier for the youngest of the...

This method is so much easier for the youngest of the group to learn about kite flying with no worries about getting little fingers wrapped in the string on a windy day. I really hope you will try this the next time you got kite flying.Happy Sky FishingVicki Henderson

    Drum Shell Ottoman

    I have a son who is a drummer and I think it would be really cool to have made it taller with a swivel seat to sit behind a drum kit.

  • Crispy Oven Baked French Fries

    I had one identical to this one but gave it to a friend who is a collector. It was much harder to use than the hinged one I kept. The one in the picture is not a broken piece.

    The use of the microwave basically par boils the potatoes. You can do this on the stove with a pot of hot water. Just be careful to not over boil them.

    Yes DanR7, they are very, very small ripples. LOL
