Updates On A Few Projects
First up, I am loving my reusable makeup remover pads. In fact, a bag full is in the wash right now. The system of using them and then putting them in the collection bag is working great. I haven't run out and they get softer with each use. Amazingly, the mascara stains wash right out each time.
Next, the saws. That's right, plural. This Handisaw didn't do what I needed it to do, so I ended up going back and buying a small jigsaw too. Now I have two saws. They are both good for some things, but not everything. I really wanted to love a saw the way I love my drill. These saws are both loud and scary. Not loving saws.
The green table is awesome! Right now it's my laptop desk, but the uses are endless and I will forever be looking for more of these simple, lightweight gems.
The painted yoga pants are holding up OK. I do wear them and they look fine. Cliff really likes them, but I am disappointed by the quality of the paint. I used a fabric paint medium mixed with craft paint and it's getting a bit cracked and stiff with wear. Next time, I will absolutely spring for real fabric paint.
This is one of the free things I got from the Craigslist haul of last week. It should be ready for a reveal sometime this week!
