Creative yes. And many of us have done similar setups. But if we are holding it as an example, we should also mention that such a setup is a violation of the National Electrical Code, so it should be temporary and only considered if doing it properly is not feasible for some reason. But, it does work.

I got lucky when I did something similar; we had a gas dryer and I only had to extend a gas line a few feet and could take ALL the time from the dryer circuit!
