31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Frugal Living 2: Return of the Cheap Gallery on: May 08, 2010 09:07:07 AM
These are all such fabulous packages, it's hard to believe this was a frugal swap. What a creative bunch of crafters (with really nice stashes) you all are!

It's cool, isn't it?  I love seeing what others can do from stash - it inspires me to do more crafting from stash.  And helps me to fend off my new craft supply cravings. Cheesy  The only thing I've bought recently for personal crafting was some pink cotton yarn to make some baby hats because I just didn't have any pink cotton yarn.  And it was worth it - they turned out cute. Smiley  But that was less than $4 for two balls of yarn..not too bad.

Thanks, Katie.  Glad you're still around.

Yep, still here.  Gotta have something to occupy my time while I wait for this kid. Tongue  I don't have a lot of energy for my own crafting, but it's fun seeing what other people are doing.

I wish I could feel that bowl after you mentioned it feeling like silk.  I can imagine it..

Wow!!!  I was sure it was thrown porcelain as well.  It's beautiful.  It's so sad that people feel the need to rip others off when they have an original thought.  Good old internet, hey?  I guess that's why I get nervous posting anything that I really like when it comes to my writing.

Good luck with the patent and keep on being an amazing crafter! Cheesy

Amazing packages everyone, but can I ask what are dryer balls used for  Huh I don't need to use a dryer as we get really good weather and hang our clothes on the line. Maybe I'm way off and they are for cats to play with?? They look like they would be fun to make and could be a good item for me to send in other swaps.

Use them to reduce drying time and static..and replace dryer sheets.  I use tennis balls currently but I'm hoping to get some wool dryer balls soon. 
I'm also hoping to put up a clothes line this summer - it's something I always mean to do and never do, but I love the smell and feel of clothes dried outside.

Oh, I love the red and white especially!  It reminds me of some reusable bags I got in red and white from a swap partner.  So pretty!

I used to be quite the collector of journals...now I just have to admire them from afar and just say no because I end up with so many half empty ones. Smiley

mink and Tanza - I guess I'm lucky!  My hubby is way more bothered when I put too much lavender in the dryer.  Tongue

I think this is one of those swaps where seeing all the other packages is nearly as much fun as getting your own!

Thank you! I plan on changing the string to something prettier soon I just used what I had at the time to make it. I needed more micro towels so I went to wal mart and bought a pack off 5 in the auotmotive department and used one foe this project and also made a pouch for my iPhone. They were super cheap.

Our automotive department doesn't seem to carry microfibre towels - I had heard that in the states, they had them there for really cheap.  I can get them with the cleaning supplies here but they're not as cheap.  Maybe another store, though - because that's a very good idea!  I love microfibre!

Eek...totally gotta use fabric softener on the towels in the washer, and I use one in the dryer with them too.  I don't want to be rubbing cardboard all over my body....or my....uh....other parts.... Grin

White vinegar - seriously!  I use it in the fabric softener dispenser with every load.  Doesn't seem to be an issue when it comes to absorbancy and it keeps things soft and mostly static free (some dryer balls would help in the dryer). And it's CHEAP!! Cheesy  Way cheaper than fabric softener and better for your skin.  I've been using it for years now.
Oh, and no, it doesn't make your clothes smell like vinegar.

Oh, I love the microfibre idea!!  I should really make myself a case...I have a screw that keeps coming out and then it's floating around in my purse.  I'm hoping it won't happen anymore, but if I had a drawstring case, at least the screw would be contained!

Hmm....I wonder if I have any microfibre I can spare....
