oh definitely punch through foil paper after a round of punching out inchies!  Phew!  I think I went through at least a box of cereal for backgrounds! 96 is a lot of punches!!!  I punched a few extras for another project--I use my square punch to cut tiles for paper mosaics!

anyway...just checking in...inching my way to the finish line... Cheesy

Did you guys know you can use the search and just search this topic to see if the question has already been asked? Wink

I put in the link to the discussion we had earlier on headbands made with a loom--maybe you can use it?

Even without the partner info, I have some cute ideas for my partner!  I feel bad that I do not have a wist, but I really like just about anything crocheted! Cheesy
15476  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: another wrap around A-line skirt, better pattern this time on: June 01, 2010 12:19:46 PM
yep--and now I have to make sure that I don't accidentally place a huge flower on my butt...Wink I am afraid it would be an easy target for a huge bumblebee...

I have been trying to stick to one or two tried and true designs that others have made and look great or that I have made and look good and is comfortable...I am also making adjustments to the length--I find that my skirts have to either be very long or at just below the knee--anything else looks dowdy or plain foolish!

I liked both skirts!

Bethieb--so glad to see you tackling more challenging things...I like the glue stick zipper idea but I have been inserting zippers for so long that I literally can do them in my sleep...I learned a totally different way in college home ec and find that it works the best for me...my secret is that I always buy a zipper about two inches bigger than I need...someday I will do a tutorial for it as I have not ever seen this method before but it works for me each and every time!

I will put up my mini list as soon as I figure out what I realistically can do... Cheesy

It is always wonderful to see how a pattern looks on an actual human female body!  I always seem to get disappointed that my project seemed to have been fitted on some tiny thing that could wear a paper bag and look great! Cheesy

I love this skirt and now that you have posted two experiential tutorials, I have no excuse to make a few!  I also have some lovely sheets I found that would be perfect for a skirt...thanks for posting...I love both skirts!
15479  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What are your favorite salad toppings/ingredients? on: June 01, 2010 11:35:40 AM
Dandelion greens are wonderful but you have to make sure they have not been sprayed and are very young!  We can buy them at our market...

I love my mother's noodle salad in the summer:
cooked thin rice noodles chilled with ice topped with shredded lettuce, thinly sliced cucumbers, scrambled eggs, turkey or ham slices, topped with nips of dried nori (seaweed)...

dressing: sesame oil, rice vinegar, sesame seeds, salt, pepper and a dash of sugar

YUMMY! Cool and refreshing!

My goals for joining this CAL was to learn as much as I could in order for my hubby and me not to use up anymore valuable resources than we have to, including time and money.

1. I don't cook, so learning easy meals and having simple recipes is important to me so I don't spend tons of money eating convenience foods or restaurant foods...I was used to spending between $30-$50 per week on lunch alone! When we first got married, I made a lot more homemade goodies and shopped frugally--I want to do more of that now for health and money!

2. I no longer need to wear corporate clothing and my style is very laid back and comfortable...I love recycling and wandering around thrift stores for bargains...I love seeing what other can make to get good ideas!

3. Like pixieval, I want to make gifts for families and friends...so many things that are purchased are useless or not appreciated...or even needed...so I like ideas for gifts that are practical and thrifty!

4. I love the decluttering and organizational tips!  I had no idea how much time & money I wasted looking for stuff or buying more because I could not find what I needed!

I like the links people provide because I am not good at looking for stuff on my own...I also like recipes and meal ideas...

How to improve this CAL? Well, I think we need actual projects to be able to make and post...or how about we have to post short tip each week?
I keep going over to the Frugal Swap to see what people make...maybe we can steal ideas there and make some of them? Cheesy
