  • Secret Drawer & Book Switch

    I hope you are right.

    Thank-you Ammaar. With only one block of wood, it catches the eye quite easily. It would only take one dishonest person. There is an old saying that locks only work to keep property safe from honest people.

  • Secret Drawer & Book Switch

    This is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. Your secret drawer looks like a block of wood used to support a shelf and keep it from bowing in the middle because of the weight of the books. If you put another "support" under each of the other shelves, it would hide the fact that one of them is a drawer. It is the easiest way that I could think of to "hide" your secret.

    Knit Rainbow Pouf

    Yeah, I too am here about the shoes. Those are great shoes, but the Chuck Taylors don't offer enough support for me. I have a pair of pastel tie dyed ones made by Fila. They were a birthday gift from my hubby last fall and have great support. Sketchers had a pair with colours much the same as your shoes, but didn't have my size last fall. I really like your Pouf project. A pouf is very welcome to anyone with lower back pain. I don't knit, but I am sure I can figure out a way to crochet something similar. I like that it is not permanently closed and can be taken apart to throw it (and the contents) in the wash. It is one of my favourite entries. Good luck in the rainbow contest. You could also enter it in the home decor challenge.

    Jukebox TV Stand

    This is amazing! When I first looked at the picture, I thought you had used an old Juke Box to make the television stand. It is a very professional job and looks extremely retro. If I were to make one, I would want to have two doors on the front. I would put a group of fins on the front with a center fin in the middle. I would make it tall enough to overlap the space where the doors meet. My only other concern would be not having enough airflow and overheating of the system. I am impressed by the way you were able to custom build it to accommodate the equipment you already had. I would vote for you if we still had the option. I did hit the favorite button. Good luck in the contest.

  • Vintage Train Case Bluetooth Boombox Luggage

    I agree that the case will get more love this way. It is better than sitting in storage. I have one that I use for storing my collectable stationery supplies. Those are some great dance moves. It's too bad we didn't get to hear the music that goes with the dancing. If we were still able to vote for the entries, I would vote for you. That option has been taken away from us. Good luck in the competition.

    They look delicious! Not only did you use the rainbow coloured icing, but there are rainbow coloured chips inside. It's a great surprise to even the big kids who try them. Did you use a special icing tip to decorate? It looks like you might have used a toothpick, but it would take a very steady hand. If I could vote, I would vote for you. What a great entry!

    Protected Garden Enclosure

    I really like your enclosure. If I had the room, I would adjust your instructions to build an outdoor aviary for our parrot. If the rodents do start to find a way in, it might be easier to just plant a little something that they like outside of the enclosure to draw their attention away from what you are protecting. :) There are also plants that rodents don't like to get near. Mint, Tansy and Marigold come to mind. I hope you get many seasons of use from it.

    What a great idea! For Father's Day you could make a frame with nuts and bolts, or fishing lures/flies. For Mother's day you could use buttons or costume jewelry. For a vacation frame try some sea shells. There are so many fun ways of decorating a frame. Game pieces, beads and glitter or feathers. Even a collage of photos of favorite animals, flowers or family, friends or celebrities. Holiday themes would also be fun.

    This looks very good. I make something similar without the tomatoes that my mother used to make. I use fried potatoes and ground meat. Once it is hot, beat some eggs and pour over it and cook until set. Flip and add some cheese. Fold and serve. I really like your idea of the cheap child labor. You need to have a few of them around though, because they start off very excited and then they get bored so quickly. You need the extras as tag team players when one wonders away.

  • Embroidered Notebook Covers

    In Step 6 Pattern 5, this reminds me of the paper pinwheels we used to make when we were kids. All we needed was a square of paper, a pair of scissors, a pin and either a drinking straw or the eraser end of a pencil. Very fond memories. These are very beautiful designs. They also bring back memories of a toy we used to play with called a spirograph. These could be embroidered on a number of other items. I think a leather or denim purse would look nice. Step 2, Pattern 1 would look cute with a little spider added. I will be saving these instructions. Thank-you for posting them.

We didn't want it stressed"We'll let it go outside, "said Dad, "run upstairs and get dressed." When I returned, I was surprised for it was in Dad's palmI never would have guessed that it could be so still and calmIt looked around with tiny eyes so gentle and so sweetThere was webbing from its fingers right down to its tiny feet Reaching with my hands I said, "I want to hold it oh so much."Dad said, "You cannot hold it. If you're gentle you can touch."I felt it's back. I felt it's wings, it's fingers and its toesIts head was just as tiny as my baby brother's nose. Its fur was soft as soft can be, its eyes were clear and brightAs soft as kid-gloves were the wings that gave its body flightAnd now the time had come to let this creature go outsideI begged him and I pleaded, and I maybe even cried But he explained that we need bats to eat the bugs that biteThere aren't enough bugs in the house. There's lots outside at nightWe stepped outside, he left dad's hand in one big swooping arcBefore we knew it, he had vanished somewhere in the dark I sometimes I see his shadow as he hunts for food outsideHe swoops around the back light where the bugs don't know to hideMost people tend to get upset when bats are in the airThey just don't seem to understand; they're precious, few and rare When people visit late at night and the bats come from their hollowsWe calm our guests with one white lie, we call our bats NIGHT SWALLOWSThey swoop and dive while catching bugs and no one seems to careWho's ever heard of swallows getting tangled in your hair?

In reality, rabies is present in less than 1/2% of bats.https://www.batcon.org/article/bats-falsely-blamed...

  • Homemade McMuffin Sandwich From Scratch!

    Thanks so much for the great recipes. I have made these ahead using English muffins and sausage rounds from the grocery store. When I make the eggs, I use oversized non-stick Wilton tart/muffin tins These tins only have six spaces. I butter each section (old habits die hard) and then crack an egg into each space. I bake them in the oven at 300-350 and watch until they are solid enough to flip and let them continue to cook until the yolk is set. This makes the eggs the right size. I am sorry that I have never timed them.

  • Waste Paper Baskets From Real Waste Paper

    I enjoyed your post. This is a great project for kids who want something to do. When they are finished they have something worth keeping, or giving as a gift. I voted for you. Good luck.

  • Turn a Spoon Into a Palm Tree Necklace

    That is a work of art! You got my vote. I would vote twice if they would let me. It has my mind wondering what else could be made from a spoon. A Christmas tree, Turtle, Spider, Spider web, Coiled Snake, Cat face, Flower with a stem. I am sure that there are others out there with great imaginations who can come up with other projects. It isn't often that I find a project that can be done with basic tools. Thanks for posting this.

    Are you certain certain? LOL. Just kidding with you.

    Carved Stone Candle

    When I went to summer camp, we were shown how to make a mold out of wet sand. You can make it any shape you want. Round, square, heart-shape, etc. Pour the melted wax into the sand and add the wick before it cooled. Once it is cold, you brush the excess sand off the outside. These were really nice gifts for our mothers.

    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.

    We used to live on a farm where the well water passed through a light beam to purify it. Is this the same type of light?
