1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / So excited I just had to share! (Luck O' The Irish, perhaps?) on: March 17, 2012 08:43:31 PM
So, I am having a very lucky day. And since no one understands the insanity of crafter's joy better than other crafters, I had to share with you all.
First, while digging through a storage bin in the basement (I love basement adventures), I found sleeves for the ATCs I have been making (baseball card holders)
Then, same bin, I found two wax sealers (the things that press a design into sealing wax)
and at the bottom of the tupperware, neglected by all for far too long, I found a cigar box! Now, to decide what miniature scene I want to build in it. Right now, I'm just looking at my winfall and smiling at the possibilities...
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Has Anyone Ever Done A This For That Swap? on: March 01, 2012 08:05:26 PM
What I mean is, a swap where I make a papercraft thing (a craft i do), and swap with people who make a craft i don't/can't do (like knit or sew). A this for that swap?
I see swaps with themes- a particular TV show, a sewing based, etc. but I've never seen a this craft for that craft type of swap. Are they even possible, given the different types of crafts out there, and the crafters who do multiple crafts.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / I am powerless against this INCHIE addiction! on: February 17, 2012 04:29:51 PM
So, I decided to try and make a few inchies yesterday.
I think I may have had TOO much fun, because I now have a naked bag of Corn Flakes. I needed the box for making the inchies thicker.
BUT, what made me think I am addicted? The fact that I was *THISCLOSE* to asking the neighbors if I could rifle through their recycling bin. Then I remembered I had cereal stashed away. Next victim, the box from the instant oatmeal.
I am already thinking ahead to Thursday, recycling day, when everyone's cereal boxes go out for collection by the garbage men.
Anyone else rummage through their house, like some sort of possum or raccoon, to look for that ONE craft supply (that may or may not actually be a purchased supply, like me... a bonus that came free with my cereal LOL)
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / swap etiquette questions on: January 02, 2012 08:40:33 PM
Is it rude to try and swap for crafts I am no good at? What I mean, is I papercraft, is it rude to try and swap with, say knitters? Or do I look for other papercrafters to trade with?
5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Operation Write Home... calling all cardmakers on: December 17, 2011 09:58:07 AM
www.operationwritehome.org
Operation Write Home is a two fold cause. Cardmakers from across the world send in handmade cards for soldiers and sailors to write back home to their loved ones in. OWH also collects "Hero Mail", handmade cards which include a note of thanks or encouragement inside. Hero Mail is often distributed to service members who do not normally receive mail from home, as a way to boost morale. The website includes pages for kids to color as well, and heros adore mail from children.
Imagine a world where Hallmark is not "just around the corner". There are heros who have made their own cards on the back of MRE boxes just to send a note home.(Meals Ready to Eat, think of a plain tan frozen dinner style box).
Operation Write Home has two very important restrictions for their cards... they must be handmade, and NO GLITTER. Glitter gets on everything, and is visible by night vision goggles. They prefer cards to be 4.25 by 5.5 inches (four and a quarter inches by five and a half inches), but if you provide an envelope they will gladly accept larger cards.
Some of the most popular themes used most often by OWH are 'I love you', 'I miss you', and 'thinking of you', but blank cards that can be used for any occasion are great.
You can destash handmade cards from swaps, old demo cards, or craft brand new ones. Card parties are a nice way to get friends together after the holiday rush to unwind and craft.
Whatever your opinion of war is, these men and women could really use some support. Thanks for reading this.
