They're all so cute! I love them all, especially the apple one, and the reddish one with all of the beads.

bunsenhoneydew13 (great name, BTW)- A Bind-It-All punches the holes and then crimps a metal coil binding closed. It's so neat! To learn how to use it, I made little notebooks out of fake credit cards and beer coasters. I got it from this great gal online (PM me if you want her website- she had FABULOUS customer service).

It might seem a bit pricey, but just after using it a few times, I think it's totally worth it! Plenty of gift ideas...

I just saw someone on here who made a notebook using a spiral bound notebook and a record album- they cut the record and then drilled holes in it, and finally spooled the spiral binding through it. I think it'd be easier with the BIA. I'll have to give it a go!

I found a bunch at the thrift store with fun titles (Songs About Scotland might be made for my brother... we're part Scottish), and I have a Tom Jones album with a pic of him and a harem on the front cover. So that will be reserved for someone special Wink

I can't believe how easy it was to make the bowl! It wasn't even smelly, which I was worried about. I'll be making a bunch more for Christmas gifts!

superhooker, that blanket is amazing! I can't believe how HUGE it is! And, I love its rainbow-y goodness.

Well, I know it's been done a million times, but this was my first attempt, and I'm tickled with how well it came out. I needed a quick birthday present for my musician sister-in-law for our family get-together tomorrow night. So, a stop at the local thrift store to nab a few albums, a quick check of a tutorial and the rest is history.

In a fantastic fluke, the bowl melted into a triangular shape with very well formed "ripples." The second photo shows the bowl a bit better. And then, I took the cover and used my Bind-It-All (which I've had since Christmas but finally had a chance to try recently- so much fun!!), and trimmed a bunch of graph paper (I hadn't intended to trim the paper, but I goofed with the BIA and had to trim the covers down a bit).

So, here is the lovely "Hooked on Classics" gift set!





Yay!

Oooh! You just gave me an idea for my sister's Christmas gift! She makes pottery, so she can make a set out of stoneware, but I can make her a DIY kit with: a small set of alphabet stamps so she can stamp her own plant names, a template to cut out the shape of the marker, some seeds, and a gift certificate to a local nursery. Then, I can pack it in a flower pot! It'll be the perfect complement to the 5-gallon bucket garden caddy she's also getting.

Thanks so much for posting this- you've totally inspired me! Cheesy

Wow! I really like the colors of shirts that you used! And, I like the 2-color effect on the light blue bird shirt. Very nicely done!

Thanks, yellowduckie! Now, when I get to it, it should make more sense. You rock!

taz- fantastic job on the undies! Love the skeleton hands and the RHPS lips! And, the days of the week in her native language are just brilliant! Now, I want to make a set with the days in French... not that it's my native language, but I took 6 years of it and French undies would be funny!

Great job!

Those crocheted fridge magnets are very cute! And, I received today from aspatria! She made me a magnetic bookmark for the cookbook of recipes from this swap! She did an amazing job with the embroidery- her stitches are so neat!

Thanks so much aspatria! I'd say your first swap was a success Wink
