I have to admit that I’m not at all crafty, a little sneaky perhaps but not crafty. Actually what I mean is that I prefer to buy things rather than make things!
As luck, or good judgement, has it, my hubby is very crafty – not at all sneaky – but very clever in making things. A very handy person to have around, for many reasons.
This weekend’s good reason was that we needed a stand for our foster greyhound Billie’s food bowl. Greyhounds are a bit like giraffes in that it’s awkward for them to eat from a bowl on the ground and it’s actually not good for them – it can cause bloat.
When we adopted April two years ago, hubby made a stand for her bowl from an old wire pot plant stand – perfect – it holds the bowl in place and is just the right height.
We have searched for a similar stand for Billie’s bowl but have not been able to find one. So, with a little plagiarism from a greyhound facebook site, we scoured the local St Vinnies for an old chair and for $20 found just the perfect thing.
We have recently built a very large garage in the back garden, so hubby has the perfect workspace to create very useful things.
Amazing what a bar stool, a jigsaw, and an old bike tyre can be used for!
If I was really crafty, I would strip it down, buff it up, paint it pretty colours and maybe even stencil Billie’s name on it. But like I said, I’m not crafty!
What have you made that you’re proud of?
