Projects

I've been working on some nerdy crafts lately that I wanted to share.

First, I made a dog bed out of a vintage suitcase, inspired by this one. Unfortunately, I can't get a cute enough picture of it (although it's really pretty). Total cost: $12.42 plus tax. Retail stores can kiss my rear end if they think I'm going to pay $25 or more for two pieces of crappy fleece sewn together and stuffed.

And I've had this not so recent (but recently resurrected) obession with rescuing peoples' photographs from antique stores (antique stores, in my opinion, are no place for those precious items). I had no idea what I might do with them until yesterday, when I came up with an idea:


Now I just need some snappy one-liners for the inside of the greeting cards! Fun, huh?

Those are cute!

I hate to see pictures in antique stores too. I hope my face doesn't end up there one day!

What a neat idea for a dog bed!!

And, I'm with you on the photographs. I do NOT like seeing them willy nilly & abandoned at antique stores or yard sales. The cards look great. :)

Those are both awesome ideas!! Good work! I have 2 bags of stuffing that are going to be a dog bed as soon as my puppy stops shredding the one he has now. I refuse to give him a new one until then!

And make sure the witty saying has "your favorite swear word" in it :)

Oh my goodness--they have cards like these at Target that have THE BEST lines in them...I could spend hours cracking up over funny cards. You should post your lines!
