52  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sugru. Miracle... stuff... on: April 23, 2013 11:16:15 AM
Ever use this stuff? It's like putty but it's silicon so it dries sort of hard-ish and can be used to repair and hack all kinds of things. If you look in the gallery on their website you'll see lots of incredible projects.

Here are a few of mine. I don't work for them, I just love the stuff Smiley.

Turn and "L" fridge magnet into an "I" (I cut part off with a carpet knife then filled it in with red sugru.


Fix a ripped shower curtain ring.


Heat and slip-proof metal camping dishes, works to personalize sets too Cheesy!


Fix an uncomfortable knife grip.


Mend a broken clasp on your kid's arts and crafts lap table/storage unit.


Make a dollar store paper towel holder into a handy canning jar ring stash tower (these things were EVERYWHERE before I did this!).
53  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Freaky sweater monsters. on: March 28, 2013 01:55:53 PM
40 freaky monsters are set up on display at our local library in anticipation of finding wonderful new homes for themselves. They certainly can't stay at our house, I'd have to rent a bigger place for all of them LOL!


















I tell people who pick this up to look at it that "this is the one with the scariest face!" Cheesy


And finally a rock star sock monkey for our cousin.

55  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felted sweater creatures, picture monsterous (*snicker*!) on: March 21, 2013 02:11:00 PM
No, really, they've taken over the house. I started out with about 20 sweaters and ended up with 55 creatures. There are still over a dozen to be finished and there are some cute bunnies in another thread but here's a pretty hefty serving of adorable horrors, ha ha.

57  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toe Head Sock Creature! on: February 04, 2013 12:34:25 PM
From this fun book:

I altered this one's head a bit.
58  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Excellent toothpowder recipe, whitens with powdered orange peel! on: January 23, 2013 08:53:29 AM
Finally figured one out that works for me, not too salty or abrasive.



10ml (2tsp) Diatomaceous Earth (food grade). ~ rich in silica, gentle polisher.
5ml (1tsp) Bentonite Clay ~ gentle polisher, mineral rich, detoxifying.
10ml (2tsp) Cal/Mag powder 2:1 ratio (this is sold as a drink mix). ~ re-mineralizing.
10ml (2tsp) Baking Soda ~ gentle polisher, bacteria eliminator.
10ml (2tsp) Organic Orange/Lemon Peel Powder. ~ natural whitening agent.
5ml (1tsp) Fine Sea Salt ~ gentle polisher, natural anti-bacterial.
50ml (3Tbsp+1tsp) GMO-free Xylitol (I powdered this in a spice mill first) ~ anti-bacterial, decay prevention, plaque reducer, sweetner.
*optional - 10 drops liquid trace minerals (sprinkle in and mix, if you wish you can run everything in a spice mill to make sure the liquid combines evenly with the powder). ~ re-mineralizing.

Combine all ingredients well and store in an air tight container. Use just a pinch on a wet or dry toothbrush. (Any powdered substance should not be inhaled, take care with that.)

If you would like to flavour your tooth powder you may add a maximum of 20 drops essential oil of your preference. I used a combination of fennel, wintergreen, and cinnamon which is quite nice.

ETA:
-This makes 100ml of dry powder but I've found that bathroom humidity can cause it to clump up so keep just a bit on hand and the rest in an airtight container in a cool, dark spot.
-I've read some reports that the DE and/or clay can cause tooth discolouration with prolonged use. I recommend use of this as a polisher a few times/week alternating with regular toothpaste, plain salt, plain baking power, or simply water on it's own.





59  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Recycled tshirt dresses, play dresses & lots of stencils. on: December 31, 2012 06:11:28 PM
Finally converted old tshirts into dresses for my wee girl.




A length of hot pink lace stitched onto the bottom of some shirts for dress up costumes:


Also freezer paper stenciled some tshirts for my and a friend's kids, one tshirt got a ruffly bottom made from another tshirt. The kids were pretty happy Smiley.




60  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cashmere monster adventure ;). on: December 31, 2012 06:04:04 PM
Made for a friend's baby-to-be and promptly loved to death by her dog, sigh.



I reconstructed as best I could.



Can you see where I stitched his bits back on?
