If you are into a slightly longer trip, I say go to Joann's at the Palisades Center in New York State. They have so much stuff there - yes, you pay a little more for tax, but it's worth it, esp. when they are having a sale!!!

I live in Northern NJ, and the Michaels in Paramus is a nice one - I am surrounded by Rag Shops, while not as much stuff as Michaels, usually much cheaper - plus they have fabric.

Pillow cases - use one to make the pillow case, then machine applique on 5 hearts along the opening edge with the other - I've done Christmas ones - red pillow case with 5 green trees along the edge. My kids eat them - adds even more to the excitement of the holidays!

Also - make small stuffed hearts, and then stitch them together to make a chain or garland - drape them over windows, across doors, over headboards as a Valentine's decoration.

Make fabric origami boxes out of them, and fill them with chocolates for your significant other, friends or kids.

Make cuffs for a red (or white) t-shirt or sweatshirt to wear for V-day.

184  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:bottle caps? on: January 14, 2004 08:55:17 AM
I have a big wooden fish that I bought at a craft fair once - it's very rustic, and it uses bottle caps nailed to the wood as the scales of the fish - it's pretty cool. The bottle caps are all rusted looking, they must have been painted with that stuff to make them look like that (mind gone blank, sorry).

I used some good ones to make push pins with, but I *really* like the magnetic memo board idea - do the magnets stick to the bottle caps well?

Make some of those marble magnets with Curious George pics and put them in the tin.

You should also check because there are some banks that do student checking accounts - and I don't think it matters whether it is high school or college.

The other possibility is opening a savings account, and just have your Paypall deposits go into there. You should check with Paypal on that.

This website (craftster)is in their list of links - under "Re-sources" then pick "Lip Balm/Crafts" and it's listed there - that's cool!

Has anyone tried tinting the resin? Could I use food coloring, or do I need to use some art pigment or Huh I was thinking that could be a cool effect. Either do a Andy Warhol type and do the same image tinted different colors, or do some black and white images, then tint them. Or special tints for holiday themed ones.

I did the napkin ring thing with a bunch of old, silver spoons I bought at a garage sale (I think I got 8 or 10 of them for $2!!)  They don't even have to match. I get great complements every time I use them!

Are you looking for clothing or other stuff? There is a place in Wanaque (or is it Haskell there) - I think it's called the Storage Chest (I couldn't find a listing for it, but I drove past it yesterday). It's on Ringwood Ave, and it's almost directly across from the Wanaque bunker, and the CVS. They have a lot of used household stuff there, sometimes furniture, etc. Sometimes it's a disaster, sometimes more organized, but sometimes digging for the stuff is half the fun, right?   Wink

Update - it's called the Treasure Chest, it's kitty-korner across from the CVS.
