Cardboard Box Organizer by 2CrochetHooks

Hi all! Kristina here. I have recently become enamored with covering things with duct tape, if you missed my duct tape posts check them out here and here. I had duct tape left over from those 2 crafts so I decided to use it elsewhere in my home to make an organizer! I had a larger cardboard box from snacks that conveniently held three empty fruit snack boxes and decided to make it a little more decorative.

Fridge Magnets

September 30, 2015By 0 Comments

Hi all! Kristina here. We love to eat at a little local restaurant called Corbet’s. Its a little family owned, Christian based restaurant that serves burgers, ect. The BEST part is the sodas! I know it sounds silly but they have these fun bottles of soda that they import from all over the country (maybe even the world?). They are a little pricey but we ALWAYS get one for each of us. Some of the bottle caps are so neat! I wanted to keep them but had no idea what to do with them.

Sideways Box Stitch Crochet Blanket

September 28, 2015By 0 Comments

Hi all! Kristina here. Its time for our monthly blanket (this is another one made for NIN so it is nice and small). This month I kept it simple with Simply Soft by Caron (see what I did there? haha!). I used a diagonal stitch. When I was taught this stitch I was told it was a sideways box stitch, I’ve also been told its called Corner to Corner or Diagonal box stitch. Basically I’m not sure if it has an official name or not.

Back porch slash laundry room redo

September 25, 2015By 0 Comments

Howdy people!! I have a back porch that doubles as my laundry room. Sounds weird but this house is an older style with indoor plumbing added (years) later, limited closet space and a kitchen/laundry room. Yeah, when we moved in the washer and dryer were just sitting along one wall… in the open…. in the kitchen. Like what?!? Bad enough the fridge and stove just sit there in the middle of the wall but no way I wanted my washer and dryer there too. So with a bit of adaptation (basically holes in the wall) we moved the laundry room onto the back porch. It’s nice really with windows all around so it works.

Fast forward about 10 years. A couple weekends ago Kristina makes a few comments about how dirty and awful the back porch/laundry room is looking. Well truth be told, it IS dirty and messy and a catch all and it’s been several years since we really cleaned it up.  You know you can’t have your kids saying something in your house is a mess otherwise you get no respect when you say the same thing about THEIR mess right? So time to clean up and freshen up the room.
