  • Yeah…Plant Incubator

  • Wonderfully creative ideas. Maystart a few business adventures. Best way to use what is avalible and trust our people than wasting trust in someone to do it for us.

  • lol wonderful – I’ve been wondering what to do with that old crt in my basement

  • Nice interesting post, a good read, thanks.

  • AMAZING!! I’m making my dad a Key Board Circuit wallet for his birthday

  • You don’t really need real things from the shop just use the creative ideas above they save money and effort and lovin the fish tank LOL

  • That hamster looks miserable… there’s nowhere to even put a wheel. Most of these ideas are great, but the hamster cage one is terrible.

    • Actually, is that even a hamster? Kind of looks too big… unless he really is that miserable and is hunched up that badly. But really, it looks like an immature guinea pig. Which makes it even worse.

  • What Eco Fab Ideas for reducing and possibly back tracking our “Eco Print”. Kudos! Just when I thought it can not get any better….Viola! The Bread Box….brilliant!

  • Very good post. I definitely love this site. Thanks!

  • My partner and I stumbled over here different web page and thought I might as well
    check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
    Look forward to looking into your web page again.
