1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / all this yarn and nothing to make on: December 04, 2007 08:28:27 PM
I am collecting yarn, im not sure why yet, but i like to crochet.  I crochet mainly just to do it, not to make stuff, but i need ideas of stuff to make.   

i have a lot of browns and neutrals ...  i was thinking teddy bears?

Have you seen the crocheted pouch pattern somebody posted on here?  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=153010.0 
The design is easy enough that you can make it with smaller thread and maybe use a small purse clasp instead of a zipper.

I just use paper clips, but this tutorial comes to mind:

Yeah, i usually use colorful paper clips too, or just a piece of yarn (of a contrasting color)
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Amigurumi Fraggles? on: September 21, 2007 05:22:14 PM
Oh my goodness! I never thought of Fraggles!  I used to watch the fraggles all the time (i liked the puppet version better than the animated one)  I'll have to try to make one too.  I wonder... i would try making an amigurmi dude first (http://www.crochetme.com/amigurumi-dude) then use fun fur or something for the eye brows and hair. 
I'm gonna study a few pictures of the characters, maybe i can put something together.

i'm in Bay City  Grin ...but i just moved here a few months ago, so i'm still pretty new to the area.  (in other words, the only craft stores i know of is JoAnn's in midland and walmart)  does anyone know if there are any other craft shops, or events that go on in this area? 

i have seen a few small shops for like sewing and stuff around where i am, but i still havent checked them out yet.

GOULASH (aka Poor Mans Meal for real.. thats the nickname)

Sm package of ground beef
2 cans tomato soup
1/3 bag of macaroni noodles (about 3 cups)
sprinkle of oregano

boil noodles, set aside. cook ground beef in pot as usual.. drain fat. add 2 cans tomato soup, sprinkle oregano. heat. add noodles... ta da!! hamburger helper in 15 mins for $5!! and the leftovers are the best part mmmm reheated with some ketchup.. delish

I love goulash...there are sooo many ways to make it!   Grin  I use cut up sausage in mine, and diced tomatoes (instead of tomato soup), and some corn. 
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: face mask to get rid of acne? on: September 06, 2007 02:12:32 PM
I'll sort of second what they said. Just wondering if you used rolled oats or if you whirred 'em in the food processor to make a powder. larger bits of stuff (chopped apple and oats) won't stick well.

I'd make oat flower and make a paste with plain yogurt and a few drops of tea tree oil. The tea tree oil os a great antiseptic, and antioxidant. The oat flower will help absorb excess oil and mildly abrasive to remove dead skin cells. The yogurt will provide a bit of healthy moisture w/o greasing you up.

After washing your face gently rub the mask on. then let it sit  on your face for a bit (experiment w/ times), rinse very well.

I did chop the oats in a food processor to make a powder, i also tried making oatmeal (like i was going to eat it and then added the other stuff).  I'll have to try the Oat flour with yougurt idea (it sounds yummy  LOL)
