DIY craft paint shelves

I had been wanting to put up thin shelves for craft paint, inks and other supplies in small bottles where I could see all of my colors at once. Found this idea on pinterest to use ceiling t-grid. I painted mine black. Glad that I did because they are next to a window with lace curtains. I put electrical tape on the edges to protect the curtains and it is the exact same color as my paint. They were exactly what I wanted. Does not take up floor or table space. Pinterest win! You can click the photo to see a larger image.

Decisions, decisions

Google recently made a big update related to security in its popular Chrome web browser. When users input information in a form on a website that is not secured with SSL, the browser will display a warning.

Sites with comment forms, such as blogs, will be flagged. Even a site with just a search box can trigger a warning.

My conundrum, Google owns Blogger. This blog is a Blogger blog. ColtPixy is my domain name. I can get a SSL certificate, however Google does not currently allow SSL certificates on Blogger blogs using a domain name. I am trying to decide where to move my domain if they do not fix this.

Welcome to ColtPixy

If you are not new here, you will notice that thousands of posts have disappeared. I am not going to get upset about that. Starting anew with a fresh sheet of paper so to speak is kind of exciting for me. Most of my older works can be seen on Flickr. There is a link at the top of the page under the banner.

If you are new here,  this blog is where I share various art or craft projects that I am working on or have completed.

At the moment I am testing out some new polymer clays for a major manufacturer. I cannot tell you what it is yet but I will share photos here soon.
