Those are super cute! I love that you used the opening of the case for the hem at the bottom.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you do when you have a craft supply thief? on: August 12, 2008 04:57:26 PM
I agree...I would lock my stuff in a closet or a lockbox of some sort...heck I would probably get a safe because my crafting supplies are that important to me...anyhow, good luck!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making beads "float" on a chain, crimping beads? on: July 25, 2008 04:07:55 PM
I've never attempted this type of project, but I do use crimpingbeads with wire. If you use the little pliers that are made for crimping beads, they will smoosh the bead forst so it kind of looks like a half moon shape, but then there is another section on the plier that curves the moon shape back into a round shape. Thats how it works on wire...not sure if that would work on chain. When I work with beads and chain, I usually string the bead onto an eyepin or small length of wire and use round nose pliers to loop the ends of the wire onto the chain. Hope that makes sense. I can try to explain it better if you have any questions...
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Re: It's either me or the squirrel.... on: July 10, 2008 05:34:10 PM
My grandma had the same problem. First thing she did was use a plastic hanging pot to put seed in and put a paper plate over the top of the pot so the birds could get at the seed from the sides but the squirrels couldn't get at it from the top (which was the roof since she hung it from the eaves of the house...) It sort of worked until the squirrels just started to dump the seed out by tipping the whole thing. THEN she got one of those dried corn cob holders and that worked like a charm! The squirrels liked the corn much better than the birdseed so they ate the corn and left the seed for the birds. Plus, it was fun to watch because the holder was actually a see saw and the squirrels would get on there and balance while they nibbled the corn. Anyway, the point is if you put out something the squirrels like better than the seed they will leave the seed for the birds.

Heres a link to a similar one, although the one Gram had was bigger. It held 2 corn cobs and actually stood on the ground...

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's for supper? on: July 09, 2008 04:29:00 PM
I'm making spaghetti! Sauce is homemade with about 5 tomatoes, 1 yellow squash, half an onion, 2 cloves garlic, and fresh basil and rosemary from the garden. Mmm...now I just need to go pick up a fresh loaf of French bread...
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Water- improving taste without adding sugar? on: July 05, 2008 07:04:43 PM
The website for True Lemon has a free sample available/ I'm waiting for my samples now. I usually drink the To Go packets, too, but I want to get away from all the artificial sweetners. I like adding lemon or lime but I find that I don't use the whole fruit and hate all the waste, so I'm hoping this will be a good substitute.
