You probably could get some cool textures from the cardboard too - maybe if you can cut thin strips and roll them into circles too.

Just ordered something for a craft.  Have ideas...

Thank you all!!  I actually quite enjoyed stitching it, and quite a number of my colleagues (I did a lot of it on night shifts at work) liked it too because it was so colourful.

Thanks - I hope we still go through with the idea - some of the non-DIYers are pushing back - boo on them :/

If all else fails for the music, I can download Christmas music to my ipod and hook it up to mini speakers - but I was hoping for something like Raj's sweater from Big Bang Theory.

I did a quick looksie and have some ideas.  Just finishing of an angel package and sending it off, then I can concentrate on this swap.

Thanks! Question... Are you typing the entire thing twice? Or is the second part just the letters[/url] ? I promise to try it after dinner!

Usually what I do is copy and paste the link, highlight it, hit the code button for Craftster to make the link from the menu of choices, then go in and manually make the adjustments for it - the preview button is a happy thing so I can check to see if it worked properly or if I put in something wrong.

When you do your link, and add the URL code, do a little manual editting.

so instead of (minus the extra spaces, just want you to see the code)

[ url ]whole link address[ /url ]
make it read

[ url=whole link address ]what you want it to say in your post[ /url ]

So for example, the link to my blog if you link the whole address is:

[ url ]http://onyxnox.blogspot.com/[ /url ]

But if I wanted it to read "~my blog~" it would be

[ url=http://www.onyxnox.blogspot.com ]~my blog~[ /url ]

Again, minus the extra spaces after and before the square bracket.

I use my (and others) wists/pinterests as inspiration myself - I know I don't expect the exact item in my list - except for maybe the supplies section.  For example, I have a bunch of fabrics in my wists, but it is more an idea of colours/patterns that I like rather than an indication that I want that exact fabric.

There is no competition as to how exciting everyone's life is - life is life, and it is just a jumping point for creativity - like you could say that you love the Muppets- sounds pretty mundane, right?  But think about how you or your partner could process that...

Muppet jewelry, sewn/knit/crocheted Muppet stuffies, poppets, dolls, puppets, muppet stencilled shirts or bags, muppet etched candle holders or glasses, muppet mixed media art, etc.

Even what you think is boring could be a great jumping off point for someone else.  I love seeing the gallery for this, and I hope that when everyone posts their pics that they also list the points the crafts are made to, because speaking for myself, I love trying to figure out the process as well as seeing the crafts.

OMG - they would make such a great background for a mixed media art piece - just imagine if you could make a torso shape, or take an old mannequin and podge the old pattern pieces on that - that would look great in a sewing room.
