.....well at least the top of the bottle!
I found myself working with bottle caps lately. Not that I needed another hobby, but got an idea in my head, so purchased some supplies and away I went! I took a photograph of each one of our cats and made bottle cap pieces. I knew a charm bracelet would be too small to put them all on, so designed this neckpiece. The intent was to put it on display to raise awareness and funds for The Pet Orphanage. I help out at the low cost spay and neuter clinic and have become one of their board members recently.
I thought I was smart photographing myself wearing my newly made piece in a mirror. It wasn't until later that I realized I could read the letters backwards on the center bottle cap! LOL Well, at least you can see that it drapes nicely! I finally photographed it again laying it out flat on the same shirt.
This is the only way I can get a group shot of all of our cats at the same time! LOL Now If I could just get them all to smile!
I decided to do a reverse and put the cat's names on the backs of the caps.
I did zipper pulls....
and I did key chains....
Even though I am a cat purrr-son, I couldn't help but do some dogs too! These are my mom's fur babies. I shall save this and give it to her for Mother's Day.
I also made a bracelet for my niece with her three "boys" on it:)
Then I was working on some letters. Love these colors!
And then had to do some scrabble tiles too! I love these typewriter keys!
Now to put cords on them and have them ready for the local up coming craft fair and when I get time, to put some up for Etsy. If you are interested in helping out the Pet Orphanage, let me know and I shall get back to you for details and pricing. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put Pet Orphanage in the heading. Our fur people are depending on us.
I have a Blogoversary coming up in a couple of weeks!!! Time has flown and this is my fourth year! (OOPS, I said third earlier, I guess it really has flown!) I shall give away a bottle cap creation with photos or initials on a key chain for the winner in their choice of colors. All you have to do is to sign up as a follower if you haven't already and or leave a comment. I shall do the drawing in a couple of weeks! Good luck in the draw!
