happycricket, I love the re-use of the cds.

How do you get them to stick together.... and what did you use for the base?

Thanks!!   I'm a total newb though, and can't take credit for it.   I found it online. 


On the boxes, I used hot glue, and the whole thing is made of CD cases (the base is just another case).   The only annoying part is gluing the insides so that they don't pop open after a while of use. 

On the calenders, you just take the CD case apart and put the front lid part in backwards.   Then it stands up on it's own.

Sorry for being such a sucky swap partner.   I hope you like the book.   

Off topic - the owner of the parent company is SURPRISE! visiting us next week.  I feel like I'm going to vomit.   Cross your fingers for me - he tends to bring staffing purges along with him.

I recieved some great reversable pendants from catpants!  She picked my wish for a surprise.  I don't know what they are made from, some sort of thin glass or plastic? 


Thank you catpants!

Are they microscope slides?

you could try placing the jars on their sides and gluing them all together with glass glue so you have say a pyramid shape ( any shape) and then you could use it as a spice container in the kitchen or a nik nak container in the bathroom or dressing table. Yo could paint the lids with colour or carefully paint names on them like cumin or salt or spice names.

I'm gonna try this myself with some jars I have, Roll Eyes

ooh, I want to try that.

Oh wow - how cool is that???   How did you do that?   I'm such a noob - I had no idea you could do that to something you crocheted....

I vote for something UBER creative and test-kitchen-ey.   Like:

Apples and 2 other ingredients only
Salad - must use Ramen noodles AND pineapple
Vegan Meat Substitue - 10 ingredients or less

These are just ideas, probably dumb, but soem thoughts.   I like a challenge!

you know...if i had the powers to make magic buttons, i think i'd sooner make a stupid-customer-be-gone button than a perfect-cake button, haha. 

I always wanted a trap door right in front of the service counter.   With an alligator pit underneath.

yeah, i'm gonna have to start getting snappy rather than "welllll, i don't really have the time" because people just don't get that!  and the thing about the bag at macy's, rrrrrr!  how rude!  this extends to less-crafty but still time consuming things too...i'm a baker and my work gets requests quite frequently...it's 5 pm "yeah, i'd like to order a cake...i need it by 7."  um.  one, i'm off at 5.  two, i don't press a button and out pops a perfect cake...  three, at LEAST two days' notice is our rule.  and usually it's not just some cake i always make, they want wheat free, no sugar, oh i'm allergic to dairy, chocolate makes me too hyper blah blah blah.  haha, soooo annoying!  and of course to scramble around trying to figure this out, i get nothing on top of my hourly wage.  how can people be sooo...ignorant?!

ROFLMAO!!!!   Bakery Horror Stories Ahoy!!!   I once had to make a "wedding cake" for this total hippy couple who wanted it made essentially from twigs and sticks.  Think "organic 16 grain, hand ground, etc." It was iced in chocolate and had this little forest-elf-pothead-sixties-throwback-scene on it.  I had to get help from the dayshift decorator, who happened to be a sculpter in her previous life, and was actually able to make the 100+ fondant fairy toadstools for the stupid thing.   

Granted, it was AMAZING when we were done, but it had to've tasted just like freshly mown lawn clippings.

Add to that the boob-cakes, penis-cakes, indian-fry-bread-from-my-dear-dead-grandmother's-recipe, good lord, I could go on for hours.
