Watch The Guilty Crafter videos!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I cook poorly, I craft obsessively and I love the look of a retro cocktail. When I am feeling guilty about taking time away from my family with my obsessions, I make videos about my guilt as "The Guilty Crafter" or I blog here. Thanks for stopping by!

Washi Tape iPhone Cord Identifiers

We all fight over power cords around the Guilty house and last week I almost hyperventilated when I realized I had been trying to jam my Kindle power cord into my beloved new iPad mini. Eeek! I could have ruined it! And since my dear husband has scoffed at me buying the pink power adaptors I linger over at the drugstore, I decided to spend all of 3 minutes wrapping mine with some washi tape. You can find various ideas on Pinterest along the same lines- painting them with craft paint or nail polish- I even heard of someone dyeing hers with Rit Dye. But really, that's a lot of hassle. Washi tape is perfect- cute, quick, thin, and easy to work with. Hey- just like me! (I kid). But really, invest in the 3 minutes- there's no way my kids will be sneaking off with my adapters now plus I have a great visual reminder not to try to charge my iPad mini with the wrong charger! (Oh and yes, I did also cover my husband and son's various chargers. That'll teach them to mess with a crafter's stuff).
