3911  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Frugal Living Swap (SIGNUP 12/21/2009-1/8/2010; MAIL BY 2/6/2010) on: December 31, 2009 09:27:39 AM
Don't know if I mentioned this or not earlier, but I reuse the plastic mesh that some produce comes in.  (Onion and garlic are two that come to mind).  If anyone happens to have some laying around and wants to know what to do with it, I'd LOVE some in my swap stuff!!  Grin Grin





Okay, now I'm curious - what do you use it for?

I think a seperate craft-along would be a good idea.  I can start it this afternoon, just in time for the new year. 

Woo hoo!  I totally need to use my stash as I'm rapidly running out of room in my teeny condo for it, my rabbits and myself.

On the 50 projects thread, someone suggested a Found Sock Rug - http://www.makethemyourself.com/rug.html.  It looks so nifty and would be great in a bedroom or a laundry room!

And thanks to MommyTheMaid for including this link in her app - http://teameconest.blogspot.com/2009/09/snapping-reusable-paper-towels-and.html - Reusable "paper" towels!

By the by, my computer is in the shop... again.  I can log in here before work and it doesn't affect my crafting abilities any, but I may be a little absent.  I'll keep in touch, though, no worries but I probably won't have a computer at home for the next three weeks.

Thanks for letting us know, Liralen! Smiley

Well, I think the aim of the craftalongs are a bit different - I think there was a 50 in 2009, too, along with this DeStash 2009 ...

Could we do a DeStash2010, separate from the 50 in 2010?

Attention gardeners:  the book I mentioned before, Grandmother's Kitchen Wisdom, has many recipes for natural pesticides (i.e. cayenne peppers, peppermint oil, etc.). There are recipes for insects, moles, and rodents.  I would be happy to send some of these concoctions along with the recipes.  Let me know if you're interested!

Ooh, I'd love it!  I made my own pesticide with some water, cayenne pepper, and a bit of dishwashing liquid (just a bit).  Worked wonderfully!

I would get A LOT of use out of bowl covers like these in a range of sizes.  If my partner is interested, I'll even send diameter measurements for the bowls I would use them for!

BTW, for those wanting ziploc bag dryers, here's an example of one kind to build:

Oh, awesome links!  I added the bowl covers to the list and will link to the dryer, too!

Am I the only one who feels so overwhelmed that she doesn't think she can win no matter how hard she tries?  Medical bills, student loan interest piling up, lost my job, and more.  I live in a tiny old rental with a small, shaded yard in a rough neighborhood.
I am so frustrated!

It's not the being poor.  It's the not being able to do all that would be so good like have chickens and a big garden.  It's falling further behind no matter how hard I try.  It's the fear of opening my mail because it's just going to be one more letter demanding payment on a hospital bill that I just can't pay even though I had insurance at the time.

I wake up at 2am throwing up stomach acid.

No, you're not the only one.  It seems just when I think the light at the end of the tunnel is actually the end of the tunnel, I get run over by an oncoming train.  Undecided

Big hugs to you, though, hon!  Hopefully this swap will help a little!

From what I've gathered, dryer balls decrease drying time but don't necessarily act as a fabric softener.  What do you think would happen if I soaked a ball in liquid fabric softener and then let it dry thoroughly before throwing it in the dryer?  Just a thought.   Cheesy

I'd worry about it on the balls (not sure how it'd react to the softener), but I also found this - http://www.diylife.com/2008/03/06/homemade-dryer-sheet-recipes/.  Basically spray a washcloth/rag with the softener (or softener/water) and throw it in the dryer.

Any thoughts on continuing this craft-along into the new year?  I've still got plenty of stash to go...

I didn't participate in the 09 version, but if there's one in 2010, I'd so be in!
