1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Garden Apron for a tiny gardener on: April 26, 2014 01:55:24 PM
I use my own garden apron all the time when gardening (which I do a lot), and it is so very handy to not have to worry about getting dirty. This year I have a new little helper who is ever so interested in all that we do in the garden, so I made her a tiny apron as well (from a curtain). Such a cute little helper. Makes me warm inside everytime she comes out wearing this, all eager to help. <3

This is a simplified version of my own apron, found with tutorial here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417397.0#axzz2MNMBOpxv

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Enviromentalfriendly wrappers- let's save the world this christmas on: December 18, 2013 05:53:49 AM
This is hardly what I would proudly call craftyness and creativity, but I think it is such a neat idea that I wanted to share it with you all. Because, let's be honest, most of us crafters tend to have a lot of scrap pieces of fabrics lying around, right? =)

We are constantly striving to be more eco-friendly in our home, and wrapping up our (mainly) eco-friendly gifts in loads of paper that is then simply thrown out (or at best: used one more time before they are rubbish) didn't sit right with us. So I've been making re-usable wrappings instead. It is a mix of simple bags tied together with ribbons, and knot wraps/furoshiki that can be tied in loads of various ways depending on the shape of the gift. It looks lovely piled up under the tree, there is not cleaning up loads of papers afterwards, and no waste. Win-win for both us and nature =)
(and to be honest- doesn't it look a bit more fancy than common paper-wrapped gifts?)

So, I am sharing this now to call on all my lovely fellow crafters to do a good deed and save nature one present at a time! <3

I am so impressed with your un-tree.  It is late this year to do it, but next year I think I will do it and add my quilled snowflakes and paper garlands on an untree.  One question though...what kind of wire did you use? 

Oh, that sounds really neat and crafty =)
I really have no idea what kind of wire it was. Just some scrap I had lying around... Sorry I can't help you much there, but I think it doesn't matter much, as long as you can handle the wire and it has enough structure to hold up enough.

Dragonchilde: how did you make that st john's-oil? I am using only part of my st john's for textile colouring, and am curious as to if i can use the rest of it somehow!

And on a different note! I received my admittance to St. Mungo's Special Care Unit just as I returned home from my week at the hospital. And I am very thrilled with my wonderful socks, gloves, quills, and dragon egg cores!  It made my return much more comfortable and satisfying. The dragon egg cores were filled with the cutest and best things! I'll have to post a picture as soon as I can get my camera charged!

*note: I have no idea who sent me my wonderful package because your user name was not included! Please shout yourself out so that I can thank you properly!*

You really don't have to. Knowing you liked them was good enough. And hey, i got to eat some tasty chocolate, so I'm all set ^^
(Though i am a bit curious about the egg cores, I must admit)

That scroll is so very beautiful! The knot and the dragon impresses me the most, cause i could never make anything that pretty.
Good call on the colouring of the rope too, it fits very well =)
