Making a Custom Bottle WasherI freeze my half and half, plus I make flavored water. When the bottles need washing, it's hard to get them clean.
Corralling Twine and Strapping Tape in One SpotI was tired of the roll of strapping tape and the twine falling out of the pantry every time I needed something next to them. So today, I saw and empty jar and went "Hey!".
Yarn Wrapped Coffee Can Mummy Candy DishThis was so much fun, and I was able to do it while watching TV! It was made with a lot of white yarn, a little gray, and some black for the eyes. I loved the way it turned out!
Bath Tissue Holder to Store Crochet ThreadWhen your counter space in your work room is limited, you do what ever you can to save space. Today, I gathered up the spooled crochet threads and put them on this bath tissue holder.

Repurposing a Dishwasher Baby Bottle Rack to Store ThreadI am always looking for something to make my craft supplies easier to store, find, and use. I spotted this at a local thrift store and scarfed it up.
French Onion ChickenThis recipe has only 5 actual ingredients (minus the spices), 6 if you like it a bit thicker by adding spuds. It is delish!
Fixing a Broken Shoe with a Key RingRecently, I realized that shoving my shoes off with my other foot was going to come back on me. It did. The little pot-metal clip that the Velcro strap went through broke. I can't afford shoe repair so I did it myself.
Tin Can Craft Supply OrganizerI have been washing and saving veggie and fruit cans for about a week. The time came last night to finally do something with them. This was what came of it.
Patriotic Straw Wall ArtI saw something like this on line, but I made my own. I had to improvise because I didn't buy enough of two colors, but I think it came out pretty cute anyway.
Crochet Chain Woven BasketI embellished a simple thrift store basket with just yarn and a hook. It's the only one of its kind and yours can be too.
Use Dress Hanger for Jewelry RackMy roomie bought some dresses for her grand babies at Costco. They come with this wonderful hook she was about to recycle. I scooped it up and now use it for jewelry.
Reusing an Upright Tissue HolderI know I have submitted a tip before about using a flat holder and a plastic canvas holder for other things, but this one is cool, too.
DIY Lazy Susan OrganizerYou know when your intentions are pure and your start out with the best of them? I put a pretty basket on a lazy susan and put napkins, spices, and salt and pepper. Then, a cup for pens. Then paper. Then cards...
Scrubbers Using "Scrubby" YarnThere are so many cool crafts supplies out there anymore. I recently wanted to make my cousin a "scrubby" and found the perfect yarn.

Blue Star Wall HangingI found a plastic star tray that just needed a little something. So that is what I put; just a few buttons and a hand made hanger. Simple and easy, this would be a great project for the kiddos.
