Crafty Housewife

I found some time to be crafty while on my break from school. (It starts back tomorrow!)

I combined my love of cooking with love of x-ray (sort of!)... I made my own stencil and painted this apron.

My new favorite little mascot is the Japanese Maneki Neko (Lucky Cat). I painted it on this water bottle I found at a thrift store (found the image on the internet to copy).

I found this sign, unfinished, printed in just black, at a dollar store last year. I finally painted it.

But, the real reason for the sign was to paint this version on the other side. Joe's Crab Shack has a sign that says "Joe's Big Deck" on the door leading to their outdoor patio. Eddie always thought it was really funny. I don't get it... HeeHee

I'm still making some leather koozies, coming up with new ideas. See previous koozies here.

I made Sheldon a leather collar with studs! Like he's really going to wear it. You should have seen him trying to get out of it the second it went on! This is the one picture where he stayed still for a second. All the other pictures were of him wrestling to get it off.

I have a crafty husband, too. He made this scratching post and bird-watching platform for Sheldon.

I would really love to know how you made your corset koozie. I have a friend who would just love this.
