Christmas Present Corks


Remember how I am hoarding corks in order to one day build something magnificent?


Well, I got these for Boyfriend and me for Christmas!


What’s that, you ask? It’s a cork-trivet kit.


I’m excited. They have bulletin boards and stuff, but I figure we should start small. You only need about 40 corks per trivet.


I counted up how many I had in my apartment and texted Boyfriend:

Me: We currently have 87 corks. 88 by tomorrow.
Boyfriend: I have ten more.


I’ll let you know how it goes.

  1. You may be the first person so excited about trivet making that you put together the words "we're making trivets bitches." Not since my grandma squealed "crocheting like a mother f*cker up in this piece" have I heard someone so psyched up for arts and crafts.

    1. "Not since my grandma squealed "crocheting like a mother f*cker up in this piece" have I heard someone so psyched up for arts and crafts." - One of the funniest thing I've read all year. I know, it's only Jan 4th but I do read a lot.

    3. I agree with WeezaFish...that might be the single funniest comment, I have ever read. As I am a comment whore that covers a lot of comments.

    4. There is going to be a LOT more swearing at my crafting sessions. Bitches.

    5. And women wonder why men get nervous when women get together in private groups. Pickleope wins. Today.

  2. Finally! Hay-Zeus! So yea, as I was saying. "We're making trivets bitches" has all the potential to be the summer jam of 2013. Just get it in YouTube and you're golden.

    On amazon they have an oversized wine glass cage to hold corks. It seems made for you. Large wine glass, holds corks. Definitely for you. Speaking of, you own a "Big Betty" right??

  3. I can't stop laughing, which doesn't bode well for the sense of my comment. I don't know what got to me most, your excitement over making Trivets or Pickleope's Grandmas comment. Either way, good to laugh :)

  4. See now this is smart! I just have a wire wine barrel where I collect my corks.

  7. Wow...maybe you can work your way up to a raft eventually! What hot dish are you going to wipe up first to break in the trivets?

  8. I think the drunk is the only way to make trivets.

    1. Just forget about the first "the."

      Obviously, I'm prepping to make my own trivets.

  9. Oh dear Lord. I feel for Boyfriend. I too, ordered something from Wine Enthusiast (for my "parents"). And now I get at least 6 emails a day from them. And this is after I unsubscribed from their emails. Before it was like 13 a day. One of the more aggressive companies I've ordered from. Let us know how it turns out!

  10. Good lord, that's what, nearly 100 bottles?

    Clearly, I need to up my game. I don't think I've ever drank from a 100 bottles of any alcohol yet.

  11. And to think I've tossed thousands of corks...

  12. My mother covered the whole backsplash of her butler's pantry with corks. Someday when I grow up I might be fancy enough for a butler's pantry.

  13. Actually, it would be interesting if you make trivets while drunk. Just a suggestion.

  16. Ha, I have waaayyyy too many corks too. And I'm not collecting them. I'm just lazy and an alcoholic...
