A Snazzy Duct Tape Earring Holder, and Good News!

Earring Holder 2

Hi everyone! I have something awesome to share today!  A friend of mine (also a faithful follower of DTD) sent me this picture of her homemade earring holder (tutorial here)! As you can see, she made it using zebra print duct tape. Notice the creative way she arranged the pieces, forming a seamless design. She purposely chose to skip the marker on her project, since the zebra print is slightly busy already. Amazing job!

Now, the news: Remember the sad, sad, post I wrote a while ago about my runaway duct tape? Guess who showed up at my door last night (found by my sister)?

Runaway tapeWe’ve all been reunited :). It’s a good day!

Happy Anniversary!

Today is Duct Tape Doodles’ one year anniversary! Through this one year, I’ve discovered a love of blogging and made connections with many fellow WordPress bloggers. Thank you everyone :). Here are a few projects that I particularly enjoyed creating and writing about:

Duct Tape Stationary (lata noto ziti)

Duct Tape Hair Extension

Duct Tape Doll Umbrella

Duct Tape Wall Art

Duct Tape Kindle Fire Case

Transform Last Year’s Flip Flops!

Masking Tape Blob Posters

Duct Tape Notebook

Duct Tape Earring Holder

Whew! That was a lot… Thank you to everyone who has followed and supported DTD!

Updates, Updates…

New Tape

So. Updates, updates. Let’s start with the design. As you can see, Duct Tape Doodles has a new theme (again). I really wanted a theme with a sidebar, and I just could NOT make the sidebar appear in my old theme, Blissful Blog. So now, here’s the new theme: Matala. And the second update- I GOT NEW DUCT TAPE!!! The two colors of tape I bought are called Leopard and Electric. I’m excited to make some news tutorials with them!

The Liebster Award

the-liebster-awardI can’t believe it! DTD has been nominated for its second award, the Liebster Award! Thank you, breakinalt, for the nomination. The rules of this award are:

1) Post eleven facts about yourself
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and create eleven questions for people you’ve nominated
3) Choose eleven people (with fewer than 200 followers) to give this award to and link them in your post
4) Go to their page and tell them
5) Remember, no tag backs.

So here I go:

1. As you can probably tell, I try not to give out much info about myself online. You know, safety stuff. With that being said:

1. I can ride a unicycle

2. I love crafting. Not just with duct tape, but pretty much anything. Cross stitch, knitting, painting, pottery…

3. The one craft I’ve tried 5,468,902 times (not really) but just can’t get the hang of is crochet. Seriously. I just can’t do it! But then, why use one needle when you could use two?

4. I love advertisements and commercials. It always bugs me when people change the station when an ad comes on. Come on people! Lots of time and effort goes into making those commercials. And many of the are cute, clever, and funny!

5. Popcorn is my favorite food.

6. I’m very indecisive. In fact, it took me about five minutes to come up with this fact! I’ve changed my blog theme about 5 times in the past year.

7. I hate socks. Eww.

8. I’m a pretty good skiier. I can do the green circles, the blue squares if I force myself, and the black diamonds if no one tells me it’s a black diamond.

9.My favorite color is green.

10. I have two hamsters named Sugar and Spice. ❤ them!

11. This is the longest blog post I’ve ever written, and I’m not even halfway done!

A 1,000 story house with lots of windows.

2) Favorite genre of music?

Softrock.

3) Do you play any instruments?

9) If you could be any animal which would you be?

A giraffe.

10) Favorite viral video?

GANGNAM STYLE!!!

11) How is this nomination going to change the way you blog?

Hmm… that’s a hard one. I think that after giving out all this information about myself, I’ll start to blog with more of my own voice.
