The Reveal!

First off, I want to say a huge, big "THANK YOU!!!!" to you guys for playing. I didn't know how things would pan out when I posted the Random Afternoon Question and the meager giveaway. :D Thanks of making it a whole lot of fun for both hubby and me. :D

I think my tendency to ramble might have thrown a lot of you off the scent of the "secret something" in last week's Random Question post. Many of you mentioned the tv/computer screen. You're right... the giraffe desktop was a picture hubby had taken awhile back. Your names have been taken down and will await hubby's drawing.

For those of you who mentioned Serengeti... I feel you... I really do. I will get to this, I promise, but I've been stitching on Butterfly Lace whenever I had stitchy time. For those of that mentioned going on safari... I want to, I do!!! And we'll go back there one of these days. :D And for those who mentioned Diablo 3, yes!! It'll be due out in about a week now, but that wasn't the hidden element.

Oh, and Jo, we don't have "tuts".... we have a few PC gaming and Cooking magazines that's in a magazine holder on the side of the couch and that's about it. LOL!!!

Alright, to the subject matter at hand...

THE QUESTION: There's a secret something in this picture. What is it? Where is it?


THE ANSWER: See the basket?

Before: Store bought basket-weaved hamper.

Hubby undid some of the bottom weaving for ventilation...

... built a frame inside...

... built an outer frame and attached some feet, that I painted...

... sexy PC components that he bought and put together...

... the cooling fan and some particle board.
I cut out a hole big enough to fit and screw the fan into...

... fan and finishing lid placed into the particle board...

Power button etc. hooked up into the particle board.

In goes the PC. We opened up some gaps between the weaves
at the back of the basket for the power plug, ethernet and what-nots...

... on goes the fan and power controls...

... ventilation from the bottom and hot air pulled out through
the fan at the top to cool the PC.

A new piece of decoration in our living room...

... to house the brains to allow us to play Trine while waiting for Diablo 3.
I mean, the system HAS to be tested out, right? ;)

and THE GOODIES GO TO:



Congrats, girlie. ;) Email me your addy and I'll zip the package right out to you.

I wondered if the basket was a subwoofer, ahahaha. Then I told myself, no, no... that's prolly a bunch of patterns/fabric/stitchy joy. Close enough?! XD
