Oh wow, all this stuff is awesome.  I'm getting some super ideas for future gifts (for me and others!)


I'm sorry you're having to deal with non-communicative people, Deb!  Sad

hey repurposed clothing would come under this heading too.
like taking a fav old shirt and remaking it into a new halter neck top.....

off to fill out my questionare

I'll add repurposed clothing to the list!  I'm also adding links to tutes as I come across them for the things without a ton of tutorials!)

Ooh! Thanks for the link... that's really cool. I went and saw her thing on bread, and now I really want some homemade bread! Yum!  Cheesy

Smiley  She's the reason I made my first loaf of bread (and OMG YUM!)  I don't make it as often as I want to, but when I do, I'm in heaven!

I am so in, provided I have a slot free!

Valentine's Day has rarely been a good day of the year for me.    Sad

I was going to give myself some time to think about this swap, but after looking at the Down To Earth blog I went ahead and sent my questionair in!!
I'm so excited!!

Yay!  Isn't that blog awesome?  It always makes me feel so inspired!
3816  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Customized Bulletin Board on: December 22, 2009 09:38:16 AM
This is a Christmas gift for my mom, who is in desperate need of a large bulletin board for her computer room/office.  The one she has now is the size of a sheet of paper.  The colors of the room are beige (walls), purple and green ... it's not as crazy as it sounds, really!  The purple and green are accent colors.

Anyway, I bought a roll of cork - the kind with an adhesive back.  They also sell squares of cork, but those looked so small to me.  I also bought a piece of foam board, because the roll of cork is very thin.  Measured and cut the foam board to size then attached the cork to it.  Trimmed the edges.

Then I mixed up a pretty purple (I didn't have any on hand) and painted the cork.  Once dry, I hot-glued the green ribbon around the edges, securing on the back as well.  I used little glass beads to make "flowers" in two corners and hot glued bows in the other two.  I also hot glued the mounting brackets on the back (I was afraid the little nails they provide would go through).

To make it more personal, I used paintpens to draw on more of the glass beads, which I then hot glued to the little pushpins (the ones with the white tops) ...

You can't tell, but they spell out her name, plus 'Love' and my name, along with a few random flowers and polka dots.

That is too cute!  I love the use of the markers, too!

I have to give this some serious thought.  I believe in frugal living, but I don't know if what I make is right for this.

Heck, I'd be your partner in this, pinokeeo! I could use one of your pine needle baskets to gather the tiny wild strawberries that grow in my backyard! Or how about some wood burned veggie markers? Or a beautiful bowl to make salads from the garden? A box to hold all the cloth napkins I plan on making and swapping for next year? Okay, so all those things would be, like, extra larges, but I would totally spoil you in return!

Yes, pinokeeo - come join!  Just by virtue of your things being reusable, they're frugal. Cheesy  (And gorgeous!)  One of your baskets would rock for gathering garden veggies or going to a farmer's market!  There's also signs encouraging frugality/reminders, maybe a burned recipe box or coupon holder, a box to hold laundry soap and other necessities like dryer balls and sachets (all homemade of course!), etc.!

What is a soap saver?
I may be resubmitting my questionaire to you kaz814 now that I've seen all your great ideas!

A soapsaver is a knit or crocheted bag to hold the soap in - that way you can use less of the soap (for those who dislike washcloths it's built right in so more suds and less soap being used) and use it until it's all gone.  The slivers of soap always get lost or broken and I end up tossing them as too much of a hassle.
