Lost Socks

Finally getting to post this after writing it on Tuesday night. Sorry for the delay, without further adieu.

As promised here is a little tutorial for the craft that I hosted for some wonderful ladies. First however, I would like to send a little shout out to friend Josee, constantly in my thoughts and prayers!!

I think there is something seriously wrong with my dryer, I always have socks missing! I have a really great laundry system. Different baskets that my dirty clothes go in. Whatever happens between carrying the baskets down to the laundry room and then putting them a way, usually results in a missing sock.

When I saw this on a fellow crafters website as a kit that you can buy, I thought, perfect, I need one.

I have trouble getting motivation to just go and make one for myself. In order to force myself to make one I decided to get supplies so everyone at the next craft night could make one too!

It starts with one long pine board that you can buy at Home Depot for $2. I then got my handy, handsome assistant to cut the boards so that each one was about the size of a piece of printer paper. We then painted the outside of each board white.

All the supplies.

The very first thing that needs to happen is hammering a alligator hanging clip to one side of the board.

Measure a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the board. Cut.

Apply a thin layer of Modge Podge to the side opposite of the alligator clip and press on the scrapbook paper. Apply a thin second layer of Modge Podge on top.

Lay out your letters on top of the board and then apply one more thin layer of Modge Podge over the letters.

Let this start to dry. In the mean time measure some hemp twine (thanks for the twine Sharon). Apply the two ends of the twine with hot glue to back side of the board.

Get 3 to 5 clothes pins and place them on the board. When you like the placement secure the clothes pins with hot glue. You will want to hot glue these clothes pins because the twine will not hold the weight of 3 or more socks.

If desired, make a bow out of ribbon and hot glue onto your board.


Didn't all my fellow crafty ladies do a great job?

This is a super easy yet fun craft! I would recommend anyone making them. If you do, enjoy a place for all those misplaced socks!

Happy Friday!

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

  11. Hello! I was curious to know if setting up a blog website such your own: http://www. is tough to do for
    inexperienced people? I have been hoping to create my own blog for a while
    now but have been turned off because I've always assumed it demanded tons of work. What do you think? Thank you

    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with

    I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

  17. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
