Updates On A Few Projects

Glass Jar with Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
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.

TV Tray Makeover
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.
On the Back

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.
Small chest
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!
