1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A neat place to look for costume ideas! on: September 27, 2005 12:26:38 PM
This summer I went to Salem, I have always been a big Halloween fan! And while planning out ideas for our trip I stumbled across this page, with photos from the Different Halloween Balls. I really like the Puppet and Puppet Master!

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / yet another 80's theme? on: December 08, 2004 08:04:48 AM
Ok I missed the 80's theme sign up which  actually doesn't matter anyhow, since it was US only... Undecided   So if there is enough interest, or people didn't/couldn't make it in like me, then I will organize a new one!  It can be anything eighties, toys, cartoons, music, if it's retro, it fits!

Anyone interested?
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Tis the Season Ornament Swap on: December 08, 2004 07:58:03 AM
I received a beautiful purple heart ornament from skyra already!  I will try to post a picture later on today!

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A Beginner's Quilting Journey on: October 24, 2004 08:24:33 PM
Okay, I have never quilted before, and was a little apprehensive about posting in here because well, gosh, look at how amazingly talented you all are! But I was encouraged to do so.

I am taking a Beginning Quilting by Hand Course, and here are my first four blocks.......
(Please be nice)

  This is my latest block, I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out!

These are my tumbling blocks, they are going to be Appliqued (sp?) When I learn how to do that next Thrursday!  Cheesy

This is the first block I did, the "Underground Railroad"



When I am all done, I will hopefully have a baby quilt!

5  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Homemade Light up Tombstone and Grave Digger on: October 24, 2004 08:15:30 PM
This is my Tombstone I made today, and my little grave digger, he was originally one of those Garden Gnomes, he was just one color, the sea-sick green color of the base of the statue, and I painted him!


  Here it is all lit up

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Crafty Housewives?! on: October 24, 2004 12:29:02 PM
Ok, the idea of this is for us home-makers to share hints, ideas, etc for crafting/daily life!  And as an estrogen based support group!
I got the idea for this when looking at craftster, and my husband was reading over my shoulder, and thought the "Crafty Housewares" at first glimpse said Crafty Housewives!

So viola! I decided to give it a go! Like I already said, I thought maybe we could use this to ask questions, for example, How do I get a particular stain out of such an item! Or clever ideas to help organize certain items etc.

 What do you all think?  I hope you like it!

  For example, lets just say a misc. girl   Undecided made soup, and left the heat a little to high on the stove, and decided to go bowling.... well if you boil water and LOTS of baking soda, it gets rid of that horrible caked on black crud!

  I thought this would also be a fun support group, and maybe we could have little swaps etc!

Crafty Housewives of the world Unite!

9  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Secret Craftsters! Sign Closed on: July 04, 2004 07:07:07 PM
Okay, This is my first swap so please bare with me!

 This swap is a YEAR LONG Commitment! Things don't have to be sent every month, but perhaps try every two months or so!  If you want to send more, Great!

    The idea of this, is kinda like a "Secret Angel" or "Secret Buddy",  if you want you can tell your partner who you are, or you can wait to tell them at the end of the year.    The "year" will be up one year from the closing sign up date!

Swap name:  Secret Craftser

Sign-up date range:  2 weeks  Sunday July 18, you should know who your buddy is shortly after that!
Date to send item by:  Hopefully every 2 months or so

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Not at all!

Non-U.S. participants allowed?  Of course! (Seeing how I'm Canadian!)

All ages allowed? Or 18+?  All Ages (Under 18 ask mom/dad)

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: Yup!

Details of swap:
Sending little bits of Happiness to other crafty people!  Anything you fancy is fine.

When is your birthday? Optional

Please let me know any Holidays you really love!  (I am a Halloween addict!  Christmas is great too!)

What Holidays do you not celebrate (may even be offensive to you)

Approximately how often do you see yourself sending your partner a gift? (I will try to match people up evenly, for example, some people may want to swap every month, and others not as often)

What sort of crafts are your specialty?  What do you have absolutely no use for?  Are there any scents, etc, that you dislike/make you sick?

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Annual Secret Buddies? on: June 26, 2004 09:38:34 AM
  Okay, I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in year long secret swap buddies.. You know like secret 'angels' and the like.
    If enough people like this idea I will organize it.
    I was thinking that it would be fun to get something little a few times a year,  Christmas, Birthdays etc. from a secret Craftster.  Or you could send a little surprise in the mail every few months or so.
  what do you all think?
