Duct Tape Crafts

Duct Tape (or “Gaffa” as we call it here in the UK) is a strong, versatile tape that no household should be without. So why not get creative with it? Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.

New Home, New System for Coping with Summer

We’d just got our old house sorted out for summer cooling. We don’t want the cats to get out of any windows, and we don’t want spiders getting in, so we wanted to do it with the minimum of open windows. Strategically placed fans moved a lot of air around the house, though, and proved quite effective. The main trick seemed to be getting airflow between upstairs and downstairs. Before we managed that, the upstairs would get incredibly hot, whilst downstairs remained relatively cool.

Updated Keyword Lookup Tool

I added a keyword lookup tool to PigPog ages ago. When writing, we just stick special tags around a word or words, and a bit of code behind the scenes turns the word into a special link. The page it links to is just a list of links to search for that word on various sites – PigPog, Google, Amazon US, Amazon UK, del.icio.us, Flickr, etc. It also includes a Chitika ad unit that’s been fed the magic word to have a stab at getting a relevant ad.
