Tootsie Roll = candy, door drafter... who knew??

Hey guys! i just have a super quick post to share with you today. i have entered the Iron craft challenges. Its a super cool site. they have a different craft challenge every week! Love it! So the first weeks challenge was do anything with light... still working on that one. Its not great, i can already warn you of that. But the second weeks challenge was to make your own unique door drafter. You know the thingy you can put along the bottom of your door to keep the cold draft from sneaking in?? Well i had many ideas, but decided to go with this one..

i was really happy with the outcome. Sure its not exact.. but i was pleased!I used a white dress shirt of my husbands and a silky pillowcase that we have had forever.(beautiful but it gives my hair super static. so glad i finally found a use for it.. tootsie roll!!)My goal with crafting lately is trying to craft without buying items for that paticular craft and just using things i have here at home. Well eventually i will have to buy some stash , but until then i am having fun doing it this way.
So run over and check out Iron craft and join in the fun!!
Until next time, take care blog readers and stay warm!!

Very clever!! I probably need three of those in my home to block drafty doors!

And I'm so with you on trying to use things I already have to make other projects. It's so easy to find an excuse to buy more fabric!

I sure appreciated you stopping by my blog and commenting on my pillows and photography tutorial. I'm glad it's helpful! I'll be following you and your craftiness as well! :)
