DIY Project FIFI

Our New addition to our family (Phoebe aka Fifi) Loves to use our couches as scratching posts, so I have been looking and looking for a neat looking scratching post, and well they are not so pretty.

So I wanted to make a natural one, but didn't want to spend a ton of $ because, all of my other cardboard scratching posts, and door hanging scratching pad, furniture protector tape, has ALL failed.

I saw birch firewood at Home depot. I actually made a corner base from a corner of a cardboard box (which the bottom part sticks under the foot of the sofa), and staple gunned the logs to the cardboard. I also cut the cardboard along the sides of the logs so that it wouldn't stick out. The other logs to the right, are just the extra firewood from the package and i lined them up on the side of the sofa.

Voila! now i just have to get her to use it! and it was cheaper than all my other efforts at Petsmart!

Urban Lace

Urban Lace Jewelry specializes in making unique eco-friendly designer jewelry. Our one of a kind jewelry is created from recycled bicycle inner tubes collected from local bike shops. Our goal is to make high quality, high fashion, environmentally friendly products that people love to wear. We create elegant design with the planet in mind.

Inner tubes are not only durable, flexible, and waterproof, they can also be beautiful. Each year thousands of inner tubes are thrown into landfills in the US alone, where they will sit for hundreds of years. Urban Lace is committed to renewing those discarded tubes into wearable art.

Barbi Touron, the lead designer for Urban Lace, started out in a small garage below her apartment making jewelry for friends in 2006. As more and more people wore her jewelry and word of mouth spread, so did the demand for these unique creations. With orders growing beyond her ability to keep up, Barbi partnered with Aaron Shear and Urban Lace was born. They been working together since March 2011 making new designs for the up coming year 2012.
