1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Where do you buy your containers? (lip balm, lotion, scrubs, etc.) on: January 19, 2007 08:33:38 PM

2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Search Engine that donates to charities, schools, and nonprofit organizations on: January 15, 2007 07:24:35 PM
This isn't really crafty but it's a good way to help out charities easily that I don't think many people know of.

Instead of using google as your search engine, you can use goodsearch.com (powered by yahoo!) and it works exactly the same way except that, unlike google, goodsearch donated 50% of its revenue (all from advertisers) to a charity, school, or nonprofit organization of your choosing.

When you go to goodsearch.com under the search bar, it will say "Who Do you GoodSearch for? There, you type in the name of a charity, school or nonprofit organization, click verify, then you can start searching! For every search you do, money is raised for that charity, so the more you search, the more you help. You can even click on "Amount Raised" and see how much was made for that particular charity in the past month.

You can read more here: http://www.goodsearch.com/About.aspx#faq21

Sooo I hope some of you will use this and help out a good cause!  Smiley

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My very FIRST journals!!! on: December 15, 2006 10:47:57 PM
This was my first attempt at bookbinding and making journals.

This was my first one, a purple paisley, made with blue and white papers. The page size is about 4.25" x 5.5" and there's somewhere around 120 pages.








Sorry, the last one is sortof blurry.

Thennnn after successfully creating that first one, I attempted another one! An even smaller one. It's made with orange and blue papers and  the page size is about 3" x 4" and has around 60 pages.









Whatcha think?  Smiley

5  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 12 Days Of Christmas Swap Angel FOUND - Big swap so perhaps multiple angels? on: December 09, 2006 08:23:17 PM
Her partner has missed the sendout date and flaked in another swap. She's been on craftster multiple times and not responded to my or her partners pms.

The idea was to send gifts for the 12 days of christmas so there would be 12 little gifts and inside the day 12 gift would be 12 things, inside the day 11 gift would be 11 things and so on. I'm trying to find an angel (or multiple angels who can split up the days) to fill in those days that she lost.

I  really  love this dress and I'd like to make one to wear to a Christmas party I have coming up but I'm not much for drafting my own patterns. Does anyone know of a pattern that I could work from or have any ideas?

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Eyelet Setter Opinions?? on: November 18, 2006 10:02:24 PM
Alright so I want to get an eyelet setter for all my eyelet setting needs but I found a couple different kinds:

1. Zision Silent Setter
http://store.crazyscraps.com/pc19-1035.html

2. Making Memories Instant Setter
http://www.makingmemories.com/products/tools/instant_setter.cfm

They both look pretty easy but I was just wondering if any of you had one of them and what you thought about it?
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / LOOKING FOR THESE BEADS!! on: November 15, 2006 04:25:35 PM
I need to find these beads...

http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H203614GL

but in white. They come in just about every color EXCEPT white, well I have yet to find them. They're just plain old round faceted beads. They have "clear" but I really want white.

Thanks for any help!
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / I need some help from all you scrapbookers... ---NUTELLA NO LOOKING--- on: November 09, 2006 11:08:52 PM
just in case you missed it girly, NUTELLA DON'T READ ON!!






Okay, sorry about that.

I'm doing a huge swap here (12 Days Of Christmas Swap) and my partner is Nutella (hence all the anti-nutella-ness up there!  Wink) She is getting married in January and one of the things I wanted to give to her in this swap is an album that she can use for her wedding.

I'm thinking it will be sort of a scrapbook type deal where I will include stickers and little papers and diecuts and everything so that she can really make it special for herself.

I'm thinking I might do a couple premade pages where she just adds in photos and little captions and things but I also want to leave the majority of the pages blank so she can fill them in how she pleases. I want to include a bunch of supplies with the album to get her started but I'm new to scrapbooking and was wondering if any of you had any ideas about this project? Perhaps you've had experience making a wedding scrapbook and could reccommend some tools neccessary for this type of thing. Or really any ideas would be wonderful!

Thanks so much!
