A Quick Post

I recently bought a Samsung Replenish & I've been through the whole thing of buying phone cases & not being satisfied with the quality. Thankfully, this phone came in pink because I'm pretty sure I'd be an owner of three new cases by now.

My goal with this phone is to protect the heck out of the screen. It's a touchpad phone & I'm not letting this one get wrecked.

My first idea was to cut the thumb off of an unused mitten & then stitch it up & slip in my phone. No one would think to steal a gal's mitten!

Tonight, while brainstorming other crafts - it hit me! I can make a FELT case.

Out came the felt, DMC floss (it's stronger), and some velcro.

However, while I was creating a craft storm, my silly self forgot to take pics!

This is the final result though:

Pink & Purple Felt

I cut a hole on the bottom for the charger & put velcro on the cover.

UpCycle #1

I have found over the past couple of months that I've been buying cough drops, obsessively. I have coupons, so I use them up. No sense in them going to waste, right? Yes, they're all sugar free. Ever since 2006, I've only used sugar free cough drops. When I'm sick, I usually find myself falling asleep with them in my mouth, so this only makes sense, too.

Enter in an empty peanut container. I thoroughly cleaned it out and I used Goo Gone to get the the manufacturer's label off. Can I say, that is the BEST thing in the world? Next to Mod Podge, of course.

I measured the lid & it was a little under 4 1/2 inches, so I decided that a 4 1/4 circle would do. To my Cricut I went!

I also cut out some letters and cropped a matching scrap for the front. I used my corner rounder & then adhered everything to the container.

What do you think?
