  • Mini Hummingbird Feeder Earrings

    This is super creative and unique. I don't even wear ear rings. My mom would love these.

  • Secret Drawer & Book Switch

    That's not a secret drawer. I can see it clearly. I wouldn't call it secret at all. Anyone can figure out there's something there because you can see the whole box, and it can be broken into. No offense it's just my assessment. It needs to be hidden to be a secret. I wouldn't put a gun or cash in it.

    IMac Cat Bed

    Ironically the bed comes with a mouse 🐀. Maybe you could do something with that too, like put some googly eyes on it and some ears and a little bit of paint or fur. Either way this is one of the best things I've ever seen. I don't see where to upvote so I favored it, hopefully that's the same thing.

  • Cheesy Potato Waffles

    I always like to separate the egg whites and beat them until they're fluffy with stiff peaks then fold them into the mixture. Its a special touch that makes the waffles even better. By the way one of your pictures looks like you are putting mash potatoes on a computer keyboard Lol.

  • Turn an Unused Smartphone Into a Smart Display

    I have an idea for an unused smartphone, maybe you can try it. Replace a light switch with a smartphone to use as a smart home control panel. Take the light switch cover off and replace with a larger one and cut cover to make a frame and attach phone to the inside of the cover making sure the phone is flush and looks good. Next disconnect the wires and remove the switch. Then cut and splice charging cable to hook up to electrical supply. Then using smart plugs, home wifi, and the app you can set your phone to have the app open all the time. Before you do this reset your phone to factory settings. Also you can either set your phone to have the display lighted up all the time or a screen saver, or sleep mode so that when the screen is touched it's ready to go and you can turn your home ligh…

Also you can either set your phone to have the display lighted up all the time or a screen saver, or sleep mode so that when the screen is touched it's ready to go and you can turn your home lights on, and whatever else you want when you get home or just going room to room. I use smart plugs all over the house from my phone mostly for bedroom lamps and an electric fireplace, but why not have the phone installed on the wall. Also it would be a good idea to have the phone on airplane mode and just the wifi on. There are other ways to install the phone like next to a light switch and have the phone in a cradle of some sort like from a fan remote or something, or stuck to the wall with tape or adhesive, then run the cable through a hole in the wall and run the cable back out near an outlet below the phone and plug the charger in there. Or even have the phone positioned in landscape mode. I can just imagine walking in the door of my house and tapping the phone to bring the house alive and how cool that would be to have that smart control panel  installed on the wall. I'm looking forward to it. Good Luck.
