1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: TUTORIAL: MAKE SEWABLE FABRIC FROM PLASTIC BAGS on: August 25, 2007 02:44:17 AM
I was really excited about this project and tried it out using all of the resources that the vast internet provides and was unable to 'make it work'. (And I mean that I spent hours) I am in awe of anyone that was able to pull anything out of this...  Snaps to you!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Great free resorces on: August 19, 2007 02:35:08 AM
I saw an ad on craigslist recently in the free section. It was for someone giving away some groceries that they did not need anymore. All that they had was some top ramen and some other equally as nutritious items. It struck me as being somewhat pathetically sweet. Just a reminder that craigslist totally rules.

I can't believe that after all of my years as a professional thrift shopper that I haven't ever seen this website! I am planning a move to the mid-west soon and this will come in handy on my way across the country. We are planning on driving (from southern California to Ohio) and I can't help but hope that my sweetie will let me make a few pit stops along the way. If it were just me then I would plan the whole route around tourist traps and thrift stores with a big u-haul hitched behind my truck. One can dream, right?

I got mine at the thrift store for a dollar. I think its just one of those things you have to keep an eye out for. (I also have my own bag and ball. I feel totally smug every time I go bowling...)
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Recycling your old books on: August 19, 2007 01:29:47 AM
There are a few other sites that I have heard of.
bookmooch.com
frugalreader.com
paperbackswap.com

I have heard of people leaving a book in a public place (bus stop, restaurant) in hopes that someone will find it and enjoy it as much as they did.
Donations to the local public library/ charity are always welcome. I heard of people sending their extras to prison inmates who have little to read while paying their debt to society.
I cut mine up and use them for collages/zines.
Or I rip my favorite images/ articles  out of magazines and rubber cement them into the pages of coffee table sized books. Of course these need a special cover that I make using hot glue and fabric or paper. I have a couple of volumes worth and it makes my sweetie crazy...
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting terms, welcome for the non-knitters on: January 20, 2005 10:06:21 PM
I have been knitting for some time now but I have trouble starting off the project. I think I have heard the term called "casting" (please correct me if I am wrong). Does anyone have any advice or technique that will help? Usually I have a friend start me off and then I continue the project but I am getting sick of asking.
