11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Can this be knitted instead of crocheted? on: September 20, 2012 03:51:04 AM
My Step Mom made some beards with hats for my girls. I can't crochet but I can knit. I would LOVE to make some as gifts for Christmas. I know I can make the hat, but can something like the beard in this link be knitted?

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stocking and stuffers? on: August 03, 2012 05:50:15 PM
This may have been done before, but I was thinking a swap for a stocking stuffed with goodies (some crafted, maybe some not) would be a neat swap. I think a stocking with some neat "smalls" would be really cool. Maybe even choose a number of partners or something. I'd love for my daughters to get stockings. They would love that.
13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Summer vacation swap on: April 01, 2012 05:58:29 AM
Okay, I sure am full of new swap ideas to not be able to organize yet, but I wanted to share one more idea Smiley
What about a swap for things people could use on their vacation this Summer? Each person could tell what kind of vacation they were taking, where they were going, and some things they would be doing and their partner could craft things they could use. Just a few ideas I had were things to do on the way, games, things to keep kids busy. If they were spending time on the beach maybe beach bag or sand toy bag. Maybe a sunndress for a little girl to help beat the heat (and be extra cute), or a big brim hat to give shade to Mom. Ideas are endless. We camp a lot and I can think of tons of things to make for that; outdoor games, fishing stuff, bike baskets, crafts to do while there. What does everyone think?
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Geocaching swap on: April 01, 2012 05:45:51 AM
OMG! I just thought of this. Why have I never thought of it before? I don't know how many people out there geocache or if there would be enough for a swap, but I think it would be fun. My family and I love geocaching, and we have made some of the small things to trade in the containers. I think a swap would be fun. It could be for small trade items to carry while caching, or things to just carry around. Maybe a geocaching bag or pencil and extras holder or gps case, water bottle carrier, anything!
15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny Doll on: April 01, 2012 05:31:31 AM
I made this bunny doll for a swap. Basically just a simple doll drawn out with ears added. She's not perfect, and nothing fancy, but I really like her. I am working on one now for my daughter Smiley

16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Bunny Basket on: April 01, 2012 05:26:31 AM
I made this little bunny basket for the Spring/Easter swap. I just used a tutorial for the basket and added ears and a face. I think it turned out pretty good.
17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Toy Swap? on: March 29, 2012 05:40:16 PM
I just finished a swap where I made some various toys and games. I kept getting more and more ideas after I sent it off. I know that I love making these things and my daughter LOVED getting them. I think it would be neat to do a toy swap. It could be a large toy, or several small, simple toys. Stuffies, games, craft things, anything kids would enjoy. I haven't done enough swaps to organize but if someone was interested, I would be ready to do this any time Smiley
18  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / What size soap mold? on: February 27, 2012 08:32:55 AM
Okay, my husband is going to make me a rectangle soap mold. I haven't made soap in a while but I make it in a blender. What size mold should he make  so that when I pour the soap in it the soap will come to the top or near the top so the bars will look like bars when I cut them and not like little nuggets. Does that make sense? I want to be able to cut it into bars but I can't remember how much soap is made in a blender? 2lbs? I'm so lost.
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What am I doing wrong? on: February 07, 2012 05:30:38 PM
Hi everyone! I decided to teach myself to knit. I got a book at the library this week and practiced a little. I am wondering why it looks so bad. Especially around the edges, it just looks well..here is a picture. What am I doing wrong?
20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Any ideas for tea party 5 year old? on: February 01, 2012 05:58:09 AM
My daughter's birthday is in April and I want to start planning now so I can have everything done early that I can. She wants a tea party she says. There will probably only be 4 or 5 kids her age there. My 12 year old will be there and a couple older kids that are siblings. For the little ones I was thinking as a craft I could get each one a "paint your own tea set" kit. They run $8 to $10 each, but since there will only be a few kids that is doable. If I don't do that, I was thinking I could get some cheap hats and set up a table where (with help) they could decorate their own "fancy tea party" hats (with help) maybe flowers, feathers, etc. I will have something for the older kids to do too, just havent figured that part out yet. My other daughter is not and never has been a girly girl (her parties in the past have included dinosaur, pirate, farm, you get the idea) so I am kind of out of my element here. What kind of decorations do I need? Flowers in vases on the tables? What wall art? Table clothes I assume something girly and with lace? Maybe doilies? What food? What do I serve it on? One thing that comes to my mind is 3 tiered serving platters. Maybe I could look around at thrift stores for things. I would like to do a few games too. I was thinking of a bean bag toss where I could make felt tea bags (oversized) as the bags, and make a big tea cup to toss them in. I don't know how I could make it, maybe just a bucket with a cardboard decorated tea cup glued to the front. I was also thinking of a "pin the handle on the teapot" game. Anyway, if anyone has ANY ideas about ANYTHING please share. Smiley
