Bubba’s little snack

So I got home 2 nights ago after forgetting my iPod touch on the coffee table, to find it on the floor out of the case and my nice pink leather case chewed up by my dog, Bubba.

Instead of buying a new one a creative recycling idea came to me. I had a ball of red tshirt yarn hanging around so I chose to crochet an iPod cozy!

Crocheting it was very quick and easy, all I did was chain 7 then start double crocheting all around the main chain row, continue double crocheting around until you reach the height you want and tie off the yarn. I didn’t add a button b/c mine turned out to be tight enough without it!

My first post and scaring the workers at Lowes

So this is my first blog post.  I figured I would start with a very funny crafting story from my first trip to Lowes to buy crafting supplies.  I was on a mission to get things to make stuff out of punched tin (i.e. lampshade, candle holders, butterflies, stars…the list goes on)  I could not find the aluminum flashing, which works wonderfully for punched tin.  I stopped a Lowe’s employee and he showed me where it was, all the time I know he was wondering what the heck I would be doing with it.  I was looking through several of the different options (sizes, aluminum vs. copper etc) and the guy looks at me and says “you are doing roofing?”, I’m like no I am going to make a punched tin lampshade.  Then you know how people give you that look that they totally think you are crazy, well thats what I got.  So after the punched tin, I need to get tin snips and I think I managed to confuse another employee.  Then upon checkout, my weird assortment raised some eyebrows by the cashier as well, I had chalkboard paint, a roll of aluminum flashing, tin snips and a piece of molding.  This is apparently not a normal mixture of items, but ohh well I created this:
