Me and My Laundry Basket…

January 13th, 2011

Kim makes fun of me ALL the time on this one. “There goes Kris again, with her laundry basket!”

Oh sure, it might be admirable…perhaps even praiseworthy if I was actually using it for its intended purpose. But as of right now, it’s my tote. Whenever I go to the office, it comes with me. If I go on a long car ride, the laundry basket filled with my current project I’m working on is right at my feet. Heading to The DIY Dish studio? Yep, it’s there, too.

Crazy, I know. 

Maybe it’s like a security blanket. A security BASKET?  Hmmmm…

I really should get something that is designed for crafting on the go. But for now, I suppose it works!

Here’s my basket filled with my needle felting supplies, all ready to go to Studio 5 today! If you’re local, it will air at 11 AM MST on KSL-5. If not, we’ll be sure to post the segment as soon as we can. I’ll be showing Brooke how to make some beautiful felted jewelry as well as showcasing some other fun projects using needle felting techniques!

The basket has made many trips to Studio 5. What would I do without it? :)

    Ah… I love it. I use laundry baskets of lots of other things too! When I travel via car to stay with my mom, I take the kids’ clean clothes in a laundry basket and then, by the time we get home, the clothes are all dirty and go right to the laundry room in the basket. I also have projects stored in them in my craft room and sewing room. They are just the right size. If you are crazy, I may be too!

    Hey Kris, If the laundry basket works for you, I say keep using it. Looks like a wonderful solution to me.
