I hope the vinyl disk was already broken, otherwise I'd have to call you 'music murderer'.
Just kidding, it's nice ^^

Hee, I know what you mean, I still have some treasured old vinyl. And something to play it on, even. Heck, my sis and I would play with my mom's old victrola when we were little, it was such fun winding it up and playing the old foxtrots and stuff.
But the record bowl? I rescued a giant box of old albums someone put out for junk day-minutes ahead of both rain and city truck. Old, missing the sleeves. I scrubbed them all thoroughly, never fear! They were stacked neatly in a box, no yucky stuff at all, just someone tossing out their collection.  But they were on their way to oblivion anyway, so I don't feel guilty about crafting with them.
I admit, I have been know to snag old vinyl at Goodwill if it has a nifty sleeve-one of these days I'll make record purses. And also from the used book and music store, when vinyl's been marked down to almost nothing. Because it's scratched, or stuff that no one will buy, and the store was going to get rid of it to make room.
So, am I downgraded from murderer?  Cheesy

Aw, I'm sorry the ginger didn't make it. I bought that chunk for less than 2 dollars at the health food store, and I've also seen it at kroger. If you can't get it where you live, I'll get you some more.
Here's two links I found on growing and using it, I forgot to give you those.

I made pincushions like that one year with a group of little girls. But we used larger bottle caps-say, like what would be on a can of spray paint, or maybe detergent, that size. They came out looking like cupcakes, it was so cute!
And I'm loving all the quilts.

I love the steampunk gal!

And here's photos of my thank you from Orange knickers. She made me the best little fairy house. It's sunny at the moment-finally!-so I took it outside and set it on a fence post for some action shots.

Still crafting! So far I love how it's coming along, I want to keep it! But I know I'll be sending late. It's just taking more time than I thought it would, and work has been eating my time lately.
Well, when I get back from family visit tonight, I can squeeze in a little more crafting today.

I just received my thank you gift from Orangeknickers! The most adorable little fairy house! I love it, and look forward to showing it off here.
I just got home from work, and have major time commitments tonight, so I promise to takes pictures and post them sometime tomorrow.

Inspiration hit. I finally found something to use for a base-something I'd had all along and forgotten about! Last night I went from having a random assemblage of collected parts to be 80-90% done!
I still have to hang it up, make sure it actually SOUNDS good, go over the ends, and fuss over it. Heh, I went to find a way to cover it up last night, so kitty wouldn't leap up and attack it (hanging on the wall so I could work on it) and the random cardboard box I picked up was the perfect size. Sonofagun, I even have a shipping box.

I'm trying to organize my craft area. I'm setting aside a small box, and as I sort, if I come across something I don't need, I'm dropping it in. Whenever there is another round, I'll hopefully be ready!

I love my swap goodies! That apron is perfect, and I can buy loose tea right next door to where I work, inexpensively. The reusable tea bags are so clever! And the DD really likes the pads.
That apron is SO my new craft apron, so many pockets! And so cute. It'll be used as a gardening apron, too. If the rain ever stops...

I have tomorrow off, and am excited about tearing through my stash like a cyclone! Actually, my craft area already looks like a cyclone ripped through it...
Well, anyway, here's hoping for a productive crafty day!
