6711  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Science IS Art Swap! (SIGNUPS CLOSED! Sendouts by 5/7) on: April 25, 2008 04:38:51 PM
Oooh...that's such a bummer about your ruined project! I was holding my breath for one of mine- I had to punch and drill holes in something and I was so afraid that I would crack it. I held my breath at each step in the hole-making process... Fortunately, it survived! Which is good, because there was no way I was going to make another one right now. I have a list of back-up items, too, but I'm glad that, so far, I haven't needed them!

And, I'm waiting for acrylic spray to dry...that's why I'm goofin' around on Craftster...I like to call it multi-tasking Wink

I should be ready to send on Monday (I'll hit the PO on my way to work). I have one item pretty much done (I guess it would be the small)- I just need to clean one part of it. I have another item almost done (I have to spray something with acrylic sealer, wait for it to dry and then assemble). I was hoping to get the last item finished today, but car repairs chopped my day in half. And, it turned out to be a good thing, because I had a brainstorm that should make the project a teeny bit easier (it has a couple of small areas that I wasn't sure I could work with).

I might run down to the PO tomorrow to grab a couple of sizes of flat rate boxes so I can pick out the best size for my items. Then, I can have it all set to go on Monday morning!

The problem I can see with eliminating plastic bags is I wouldn't want to put my meat in my fabric bags.   Tongue

The bag that has the little tab to hook over the holder in the store is somewhere in this thread.

I hear you on the meat thing! Maybe you could make some meat bags out of an old shower curtain liner or vinyl tablecloth? Then you could wash them out with some bleach and not worry about them getting all icky.

Hmmmm...I may steal my own idea Wink

And, I need to make some produce bags out of mesh, too...

And, I have a bag from my grocery store and it has one loop on the back side (not the "side" sides). They hook that loop over the hook on their plastic bag rack and the front side flops open. Works pretty well! I have some bags just about done, so I may go back and add a twill tape loop to each one.

Yay! More cool whimsies! I love how all of the jars are so different, yet there are some similarities between many of them (buttons, rubber stamps, chipboard shapes, bottle caps, stick on felt letters, stickers, beads). This is so much fun Smiley

Just an update to let you know that I am figuring out the math of the bag- I'm making a small, lunchbag-sized version for the tutorial, but I want to make sure I include a good explanation for scaling it up to a larger bag.

And, I think I've worked out a way to make the buttons look and work better!

After a morning of sitting at the car dealers waiting for them to fix my car, it was such treat to come home to find a box of whimsies waiting for me! My partner, kristen219, spoiled me with a couple of extras, too!

Stuffed into the jar:

And some close-ups:

Cool fabric, mini notecards, stickers (butterflies and pirates!), furry green fabric (future mini-monster), cherry appliques and a vintage-y postcard plaque.

A bunch of very cool beads and charms to make stuff with! I love the key and the heart! And, the purple polymer beads are very cool (did you make them, Kristen?) and will be turned into earrings, I think Wink

A mini manicure set, more cute emery boards, sticky notes, beads, awesome paper clips, cute little buttons (check out the colored pencil ones), little notebook paper charms, a thimble, a duck (probably one of my favorite items, for some inexplicable reason), a bear rubber stamp, pretty binder clips, a bejeweled hair clip, a mini bottle of Tylenol, and some felt stick-on numbers and letters.

And, a shot of a very pretty bracelet! It's so perfect for Spring!

Thanks, Kristen! I hope you like your whimsies as much as I like mine! Thanks for being my partner!  Grin

6719  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ APR on: April 25, 2008 11:29:40 AM
it seems like this is the month that everyone's kind of struggling to get done! for me, it's the sunshine, dragging me out for walks and picnics where i don't think to bring my crochet.

craftADDchick - i love those colours! all the ends you have to weave are worth it, the colours look soo good together!

Thanks! I need all of the encouragement that I can get on the colors of this one.  The more I look at it the more the color combo is starting to grow on me.

And, you seem to be correct in how folks are struggling to finish this month. We've had over a week of gorgeous weather so it does make it hard to sit inside and crochet Wink

I thought you must have another one coming soon!  I'm only keeping up with this thread because I know you aren't done yet!  Good job!

Thanks for the support! You see, I really do get to things eventually Wink
