The solution to my man's out of control BBQ utensils.

I feel a rather deep post about life coming on, so I thought I'd do one about nothing to kind of balance things out a bit. 
 I don't know about you, but my man's got his own set of utensils for BBQ season and they are always in the most random of places.  On top of the freezer.  On top of the washing machine.  On top of the kitchen counters.  Hanging from chairs.  Being wielded by ten year old boys who want to sword fight.  (Like to drive a girl crazy!) So I'd had enough, and I decided they needed a home.  I got to rummaging around, and found this crock that I've used off and on for my own kitchen utensils and decided it was perfect. I wanted to label it (because I'm addicted to labeling things, and will forever swear that labeling is my love language) so that Adrain knows this is his stuff.  That's the sort of logic that makes marriages last. 
 I know there are gazillions of better ways to do this, probably just ordering a vinyl label from Leen would have been the cutest solution... but... I needed something today.  Right now.  I used a piece of masking tape so my "label" would be straight. 

 Then I yanked out my rub on letters, and rubbed "BBQ" right onto this crock.  (I'm sure it's not water proof, so don't leave it outside permanently.  Not that you would... but I'm just saying in case you're forgetful or something.)
 Oh, and please ignore the fact that I haven't given myself a manicure since November.  (I do realize, that by saying that, you're all checking out my overgrown cuticles suddenly.  I also realize you might not have even noticed them if I'd kept my mouth shut.  And now we're all thinking about this and wondering why I don't stop talking.  I have no answer for you.)

It turned out cute, didn't it?  And at the end of BBQ season, I can wash those letters off and reclaim my crock. 


Got a good idea for backyard dining and BBQing?  I'd love to hear yours!

  3. Great idea! But will he actually put them in their home? My hubby wouldn't. LOL! You know I have read your blog for months and months and always thought your husband's name was Adrian not Adrain. How do you pronounce it? Silly question, I know. : )

  6. Sasha, for all the crafting you and and the amount of followers you have I'm surprised that Silhouette has not contacted you and gave you a free one and one to giveaway. I see so many smaller bloggers getting them for free and then a giveaway. I think the Silhouette would be great for all your projects. You should contact them. Just a thought in my head, thought I would share it. lol.
    Have a great day!

  9. That is a really cute idea! We don't have a grill yet, but I'm sure when we do get one, I'm going to need something like that to keep all his stuff in one place. Now if only you could give me a solution to keeping the rest of his stuff in order! :)

    Have a great day!

  11. I just busted out an old white crock for MY kitchen utensil and threw in some clear jars for flour & sugar. Hmm, those labels would really kick them up a notch. You got me thinking...
