11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Spring Gardening Swap? on: January 05, 2010 10:42:09 AM
I would love to be a part of this swap.

Side note, Does anyone else plant a square foot garden? 

When I first started gardening I planted a square foot garden. For me, it was a great way to start. I still use a modified version of square foot gardening. It just makes sense in my small backyard "city" garden. I love Mel!
This year I want to try a "craft garden". I want to plant some loofah gourds for soap making, some large gourds for making bowls and containers, maybe some lavender for drying....you get the idea.
Hope this one happens! I have never organized a swap before but if some one wants help I would be glad to pitch in!

13  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you organize your stash? on: January 03, 2010 09:14:09 AM
I "file" my fabric in two filing cabinets. I purchased a pack of comic book boards to wrap my fabric around. (It was about $6.00 for 100 boards.) I wrapped all my stash (except fat quarters, I folded those) around boards. I had 5 drawers per cabinet so I sorted by fabric content first, then colors and prints. I dropped the sorted, wrapped boards in hanging file folders and hang them in the filing cabinets.
I absolutely love this system! It keeps all my fabric clean and I can open a drawer and see all my FQs, or another drawer and see all my flannel. It did take me about a week to get all my fabric wrapped and sorted and it is a constant battle,, as I bring in new fabric to get it wrapped and put away but when I go to browse fabric stash for a project it is WELL worth it!
14  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Make-a-Friend Round 4 (signup: may 18 to june 5; Package 1 sendout: July 3) on: May 19, 2009 08:20:12 PM
Thinking seriously about this one. The previous rounds looked like so much fun. And.....Shhhh!... none of my friends are crafty!
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: How would I go about making something like this... on: March 08, 2009 02:24:41 PM
I have seen these done with half a Styrofoam ball on top of the glass for fullness. The candy is glued to cover the ball, then you glue the ball on top of the candy filled glass. Makes for a very full, pretty "soda".

I finally finished the I-Spy bag for the 1st Grand.
I have not filled it with rice & goodies (although I have them ready) as I don't want any mishaps before Christmas. I used a panel piece inside in case it ever peeks through the rice.

This is another panel piece from the same line I used for the back.

It only looks wonky because the side is still open for filling.
I will kill me to wait until Christmas to give him these things. It's a good thing his birthday has already passed.

That is fantastic!!! Mammaw rocks!
Thank you! I really want to be the MamMaw that "rocks". LOL
That's so cute :-) I'm sure he'll love it.
Thanks, I am going to have a hard time keeping it till Christmas.
Finally finished something for the oldest grandson this month.
He LOVES to "PITE" (write), so MamMaw made him a "to go book".
Now I just have to wait till Christmas to give it to him!

Wow, that's wonderful! I *love* the fabric you used (WHERE did you get it!?).  It inspires the imagination.

How old is your grandson? I think this'd be good for a huge range of ages.  Cool
Thanks so much. I found the fabric at one of my local quilt shops (Little Quilts in Marietta, Ga.) a few years ago and have been looking for the perfect project ever since. I checked the selvage but no info left, sorry. It also had a panel fabric in the same line with dragons, a King and Queen, Jester, etc. I used one of the dragon squares to make the pocket to hold his notepads. I am using the same fabrics to make an I spy bag for him too. Hope to finish by the end of the month.
He just turned 2 last week. I made him a birthday banner (huge hit!) and Cars blanket.

19  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: I am going to pass on the very best advice I've ever been given... on: February 20, 2009 07:04:25 AM
That is GREAT advice and works in life as well as craft.
My screen name, CreativeGenes, is a nod to both my grandmothers. They were truly talented crafters and patient teachers. I think of them often when I craft.
Stereoette-I love the dutch girls and the "wavelength". Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! My DH is a potter and I have always wanted to play with glass in his kiln. Maybe if I convince him I'm just quilting,,,,,,?Huh?

I love this idea. I just read through all 26 pages and I am in!
Every year at Christmas I say, "I am starting on next Christmas in January!". I never have.....till now. I have started on a dozen ornaments (sweat shoppe style).
I love the mittens everyone is knitting but it has been a looong time since I held a knitting needle so I decided to use felt, ribbons, glitter, and sequins. I found my inspiration while searching for felt ornaments but can't find it right now to give credit. Hopefully I will have a few finished tonight or tomorrow so I can post a pic.
Thanks for the motivation & inspiration!
First Pair Finished!
