What to do....What to do....

The good folks over at The Mad Housewife posed a question recently. What do you do with your wine corks? Well, let me just show you!
 That's right, with the help of my Dad, I make trivets. He makes these great little trays for me and then I sit at the table arranging and rearranging corks in the opening until they fit just right, hot gluing them in place. A few of my lucky friends have received these as gifts. Personally, I keep one on my table at all times. Aren't they fabulous?
This one is mine and it makes regular appearances on my blog in various food pictures.
Sadly, this one was before I discovered Mad Housewife wines, but you can bet the next one will have Mad Housewife corks in it!

Those are really cool, Beth! And yeah, one with the Mad Housewife label would be really fun.

These are so fun! I've always wanted to make one, but I forget. I need to get some frames and I'd be in crafty heaven. I have so many corks it's ridiculous...been saving them for YEARS! And yeah, love Mad Housewife, if just for the name ;)
