"Something Other Than a Card"

Friday, May 21, 2010


Todays post is not a card. Surprise, Surprise. I'm always saying how crafty my wife Rose is. She knits, Crochets, and does plastic canvas. She can do it in here sleep, or when she is sitting in front of the TV watching her favorite soap opera. Don't ask me how she does it, I have no idea. So, with that said, if you have questions, I'm not the one to answer them.


The first item is a tissue box in the shape of a cute dog called "ZIP". She loves to do animal themes.


"Dog Tissue Box"



The second tissue box is a cat. Strangely it looks like our cat "Sandy. I can't snuggle with it, but it is very cute.




"Cat Tissue Box"

Seeing that my wife ,Rose, refuses to use a computer, if you wish to leave a comment about her work, please do and I will pass them on to her. She mostly gives her creations away, but also does sell quit a few.

Hope you enjoy her work.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Very cool stuff. The plastic canvas stuff is a whole lot harder than it looks. Those a very nice.

    Aw too cute Rose! My mom did quite a few of these years ago; she even made my daughter a Barbie doll castle out of plastic canvas... that thing was so amazing (two stories and six rooms) that we kept it. Luckily, it comes apart in three pieces held together with velcro, because it was about 8 feet long!

    Your pieces are adorable!

    I think I have this leaflet. I love plastic canvas. I made some piggy banks for some of the kids in the family who have too many toys. They are posted somewhere on my blog. Your wife did a wonderful job.
