Remeberance Day/ Veterans Day, Blessedly Stressed Saturday...
Weather is getting cooler, Christmas is playing on the radio, and the stores are loaded with holiday spirit. And here I am out at our local Office Max, which is going out of business, and buying all the kids school supplies for next fall. I have binders, backpacks, and notebooks loaded in a tote to pick from in August I’ll thank myself then.
So, a fun project, if you are looking for one. Homemade washer and dryers for dolls. If you have a local Five and Below store find their coin bank safes. They are smaller, but perfect for dolls.
I have thought a LONG time about what I could use for a washer and dryer in my shop – I think these could work. They actually come in cute colors and are only $5.00 buck each. I suppose if you are not fond of the color you can spray paint them… like I did. I will warn you though – use the combination on the bottom to open the safe because once you spray paint the lock portion, you really can’t see the numbers. Needless to say, I had to break into my safe. HA! Then you need to find a neat housing for the set. I prefer to have mine stacked. A housing could be a rectangular basket or you could build a quick box to stack both pieces in. I would decorate it too and add some fun accessories. Like signs, box of laundry soap, maybe a few clothes pins, and a small wicker basket for clothes. Go ahead – get creative. I will post finished pieces next week. Be kind, stay positive, and always do for others.
