I've had these corks lying around for ages. Always thought I'd be able to use it someday. Cutting the cork was not as difficult as I thought. It does help to soak it if it crumbles too much. If you like this set you may also like the http://heltenkeltkomplicerat.weebly.com/blog/wooden-jewelry I made some weeks ago.
The satisfaction of fixing and making your own things. It does require a few tools though. Here are some basic tool everyone should have at home.
Upcycled some chopsticks and paper bags today and made christmas cards. A bit early but I´m hoping to sell them at Feira Escandinava on 3-5 November at Clube de Pinheiros here in Sao Paulo. All profit go to the orphanages that the Scandinavian church support.
The 2nd largest clutter after my wardrobe has got to be the kitchen. Half of the stuff just sits in the cupboards and never gets used. Don't even know where all the odd muggs came from. If I think of it carefully all one person really needs to consume 3 meals a day is what you see in the picture below. Perhaps you could mark the stuff with each family members name and just let everyone care for their stuff. It would have to be cleaned straight after each use, but how difficult is that when you have so few items. I realise you must have a few extra sets for guests of course. It´s definitely a space saver! The bowl can be used for hot drinks as well as deserts, soups, rise and noodles in case anyone missed that.
