1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: old crappy beads, new crappy beads... on: February 10, 2008 01:15:11 PM
My sister is an art teacher and has a standing order for all of my craft supply rejects or unusable leftovers. I'm amazed with the ways she comes up with for her students use some of the crap I've given her (plastic beads, ugly beads, broken beads, containers I can't recycle). With public school budgets being cut across the board, you could always donate your stuff to a local elementary school art teacher.

In an effort to recycle some nice scrapbooking paper, I made a ton of those stars. I strung about 6 of them on needle & thread with leftover beads between stars, added a loop of ribbon from my scrap pile on the top. I ended up selling some as christmas ornaments, and have been using the rest to decorate gifts.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Costume for a Preggo? on: October 20, 2007 04:06:00 PM
My sister is also preggers and looking for a costume. I told her that she either be a gumball machine or a giant bong. I'm guessing you're not going to do the second one.

I love it! I will definitely have to add this to my list of possible jack o'lanterns for this year...I'm going to send a link to this to my labmates (I'm an ichthyologist).
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Sea Glass on: June 23, 2007 01:07:59 PM
We had a ugly light fixture above the vanity in our bathroom and no money to replace it. We built a box (just edges, not panels), then glued our sea glass onto a piece of plexi. Silcone works best b/c it's waterproof. The plexi was then glued in place so that it was the front panel of the box. Same for the sides. The top is plain plexi so the light bulbs don't get dirty, and the bottom is open.
6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: what to do with imitation ground meat????? on: May 18, 2007 11:24:27 AM
I throw it on pizza a lot, which is my standard "use all the little bits of stuff in my veggie drawer and freezer" dinner. Also, veggie shepard's pie was great with the crumbles, as was lasagna.

Try the website for vegetarian times...lots of recipes!

Cute! I would like to see his two brothers! I <3 them!

Here you go!

Thanks for the comments! I made one of the brothers angry and made his bell (the "head" for lack of a better term) a bit taller. I'll have to take a picture of it and see which you guys like better. As for writing a pattern, I can give it a shot in a few days. This is also my first time crocheting, so I'll have to look through some other patterns to get the wording right.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My first ami - the happiest jellyfish on: January 29, 2007 05:53:47 PM
Very excited, just finished my first amigurumi. I decided to just freehand him (and 2 brothers), so no pattern. I call him the happiest jellyfish.

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How many shows? on: December 20, 2006 08:03:01 AM
I just did 3 in 3 weeks, and I'm exausted! It's always surprising to me how tiring it is to sit at my booth for 4, 6, 8 hours, plus adding in the set up and tear down time, the travel time. While you might not sell a lot, I ran out of some stuff at one fair (the one in the middle) and had to spend all week making more stuff for the next one (where I sold almost nothing), which was also very tiring.
