knack now



Do you have only one earring you can't seem to toss?
A broken bauble?
Cracked Pottery or china?
If you're like me, you have a whole basket of broken dishes and randomness just waiting on a DIY knight in shining armor, a spare moment on the clock, or a wave of creative brilliance to come along and rescue it from the shards bin...

(I actually have one and a half drawers FULL of pretty things I've broken labeled "Future Mosaics")

Here's one idea-charming:
Use it to make magnets from junk, just like Barb from Knack.
(I think you could also use it to make hardware for the jewelry pegboard.)

Now, if only I could find something to do with derelict socks...

  1. Wonderful idea!!!
    Ahh...Derelict socks...We tie ours in a knot for the dogs to play with...until I get tired of seeing them lying around hither & yon on the floor.

    Only...this might not be such a good idea for the mighty Khan since he tends to eat them (i.e. swallow them whole?)
