Hi sisters xxx did any of you see my flip flop puzzle??? Hugs

oldandancient

Gina, I think Joy did put it on a wood backing.

Joy, this sign is just so cute! I had an idea, maybe you could clue the cardboard backing to a board or a piece of wood, to make it sturdier. Would be sad if this fell apart after just one season's use, when it might last at least a couple more years. Just an idea...xxxx

oldandancient

Yep. You never know. It could be sooner than later. We keep saying we should go somewhere other than the beach, but when we do, we always say we missed the beach. My daughter loves historic sights, what with her being a history major. Have been talking about going to Gettysburg for years. We end up going to DC or Lexington, VA. We love that place. It's only a few hours away and we have such a good time. Son doesn't care too much about visiting battlegrounds, but the rest of us really love it. Well, I'm in the middle of folding laundry and waiting for a load to finish and then probably off to bed.

Big hugs to you! Someday we WILL hug in person! Can't wait for that day! Doing some of Brighty's puzzles!

I know for a fact that I've been blessed so much more on jigidi than I was when I worked. Probably because you can only do so much when you work for the government. They were changing things up on a weekly basis and it was not always for the good. Hugs, Joy.

I'm so thankful God had other plans! You have blessed my heart so much! The foam board sounds like a good idea. Flip flops I used are children size small...Walmart for 98 cents.

I have a different idea about doing the letters. I went to the dollar store last week and saw flip flops and I think they were plastic letters or cardboard maybe and some other cute things to put on it. I thought of gluing them all to foam board. We have a closet full of it. Hubby and son use it to back son's pictures that he draws and paints, before they put it in the frames they build. I don't plan on painting anything for this. Will see how it turns out and take a picture. I sure hope that when you are in your 60's you don't lose that motivation you've got now. I had so many plans for when I retired, that by the time I retired, I didn't feel like doing any of them. Got to doing jigidi and absolutely love doing puzzles and making soul sister friends and chatting and hoping to make people feel better and have a purpose to their lives. Who would have thought. I thought I would be sitting and reading and knitting and watching the boob tube. But life with you sweet gals is so much more rewarding than all the plans I had. Guess God had other plans for me, huh?

joyfulnoise4

I totally understand! I have been totally non motivated lately myself. My daughter painted the letters for welcome and then I felt guilty with them all ready to go and just taking up space on my counter! Once I started... and burned myself with the hot glue... the project went so fast. Maybe half an hour!

oldandancient

I tell you what, Joy. I will get some flip flops and make one and take a picture and put it on my door. If I'm too lazy and don't get one done, I will send you my address and you can mail me one. But I know i can do this. I'm very crafty. Just lazy.

joyfulnoise4

OandA...email me your address and I'll make you one! If I do another one the one thing I would do different is I would use a thicker piece of cardboard to back the flip flops! Mine is rather thin and really needs the door to support it! I figure if it can withstand everyone slamming the door I did ok!!

Hi, Ada. Did not know you were Hooknstitch. Love your puzzles.

petslave

I would need another way to glue or anchor the flips flops. I use hot glue for crafts I keep indoors where it's cooler. I live in south Florida and my front door faces the hot setting sun, basically hot pretty much year round and hot glue melts quickly even in low heat. I have other glue I could use but I will more secure using tacks or small screws. I have an idea to use 10 pairs of child flip flops, I have the stuff just not in the mood to work on that project just yet. I'm still hunting ideas I can incorporate but NOT copy. Thanks for posting. ~ Ada

I actually went to the dollar store and looked at flip flops and other stuff I could use to make one of these. I thought I would give it some more thought first. I was afraid I would get the stuff and then forget about making it until the end of summer, which would be too late. I've become a procrastinator in my O&A life. Joy did do a fantastic job on this. It's so pretty.

very creative--nice and bright --a very good job Joy--thanks for sharing--Erikaxxx

There are tons of cute flip flop decorations if you google it! This one looked the easiest! And yes... you will have one leftover flip flop! Unless you make two!!!

oldandancient

Thanks for the info, Joy. I would have bought an adult size of flip flops. We have tons of cardboard, also have lots of foamboard. Son makes backs for his pictures and frames with foamboard. Hubby makes birdhouses, so we have wood, too. If I make one, I'll take a picture and see how it turns out.

joyfulnoise4

The letters are wood, the flowers and turtle are also wood... but pre-painted. The flip flops are a child's small.....98 cents a pair at Walmart. You need a good, stiff piece of cardboard to hot glue it all to. Then I just ran the wire through the cardboard to hang it from. Make sense?

oldandancient

See, I thought all the letters and flowers and turtle were foam and glue gunned together. That is what I would do. I'm pretty crafty, so it looks easy to do. Just got to remember to get the supplies.

joyfulnoise4

Hi my sweet OandA!! I would gladly make you one! Super easy and not expensive. Under ten dollars! I got a steal on the wooden decorations.... only .29 cents each! Joy's joy painted the wooden letters for me so I have to give credit to her!

oldandancient

What a clever idea, Joy. This is so cute. If I could only remember to buy some flip flops and make one of these. I get to the store and can't remember anything. By the way, BIGKARLS has a giraffe puzzle.
