I'm going to cut this way down, maybe a quarter of what you did, and give it a try! They look yummy, and Morningstar is way too expensive. By the way, the saucy rice you have in your picture next to the burgers looks so good. What is it? Spanish rice, or something else?

Peanut butter on sliced apple, or banana. (PB and banana makes a good sandwich, too.)
You'll still be stuck with sandwiches a lot, I fear-so vary the bread. Tortillas, bagels,ect.
If you have access to a microwave, bring a big potato and bake it. maybe top with a slice of cheese, or anything, really.
A bag of tortilla chips or pita chips, and a jar of good salsa, or hummus, perhaps?
I like chopped apple mixed with vanilla yogurt and raisens and nuts. The apple will darken a bit, but that's all right.
Flavored yogurt instead of milk on cereal is good. Find a breakfast bar you like. Make a fried egg sandwich, add stuff like cheese and meat and mushrooms when you can.
Milkshakes, use a banana, other soft fruit, you can add peanut butter, chocolate syrup, canned fruit(Not all at once, obviously Smiley ). Throw in a scoop of protien powder if you like. And Milk, and or ice cubes. Doesn't take long to blend, you can take it with you to chug. Save a big plastic cup and lid from a fast food place. Washing the blender isn't hard. Put in a little water, close the lid, hit the button-that makes it faster.
My mother had an old fashioned shake blender that was a glass jar, a metal lid, and a metal plunger piece you pulled up and down quickly. We'd use milk, an egg, a spoon of sugar, and maybe a little vanilla. (This was before we knew not to eat raw eggs). It made a fast eggnog to chug, when time was short, and it was too early to face much food.
Make pasta salad to bring with you? That can be filling, and you can add a variety of stuff to it.
A can of tuna, or other meat, and crackers to spread it on. Not fancy, but no refridgeration needed.
Invest in a couple of cold packs and an insulated bag for lunches?
Eat anything fast and hearty in the am, not just traditional breakfast food. Leftover soup, chicken, pizza, ect.

I have an idea I'd like to toss out there, regarding our Aussie partners.
I can't ship internationally. I'm too broke. But I could make an extra ornament, and send it to one of my partners who is shipping to Australia, to add to her package. I would have to keep it lightweight, and send it early, of course, to give said partner plenty of time.
Does this sound like an idea? I want everybody to get their full complement of goodies.
Besides, although I know none of us here will flake, or have real life rear it's ugly head and interfere-if it does happen, that'll help avoid finding an angel...at christmas...who'll ship internationaly.
And if it's a wonderful swap that runs like-dare I say it?-clockwork, that just means someone may have an extra ornament. And nothing wrong with that.
Anyways, what do you all think?

What can I do with a giant magnet from the back of a blown out subwoofer?

How big is this, and what shape is it? You could put some pictures and a clear acrylic top over it, so it can double as a paperweight/picture frame and paperclip holder for a desk. A multi-tool!

I've got a bunch of pens that were kind of cheap and don't write anymore, what could I do with them if I took the ink out and jstt had the plastic tube?
You don't want the giant magnet near your desk if you have a computer on it! Again, what size is the magnet? Could you attach it to the bottom of a vaccum cleaner to pick up pins and such?
And....the pens? Hmm..
Glue them to an empty can to make a pencil holder? Make a picture frame? Cut them up to make funky beads?

 I have no willpower. I'm in! Grin It'll be a week before I can start-frantically finishing painting the house while the weather holds out-but I can plot.

Anyway, I am seriously tempted, but not sure I'll have the time. I am stalking this thread at the very least. Smiley
Come on BSB!!! You basically introduced me to Steampunk!!

I did? Really? Wow. And this swap does have a long crafting time....
You're tempting me, Pogo. And, good to see you again!
Darn it, now I'm getting ideas. Smiley

*Waves to Eukarya* Whoever gets you for a partner is a lucky craftster indeed! I was in the steampunk swap, which was my first swap since you angeled for me.
So yeah, it's been a while.

I like the idea of using the placket for the strap. I may have to steal that. Great fabric, and a nifty purse!

"What can I do with an overstuffed queen-size comforter that's ugly as sin but relatively new?"

Make a duvet cover for it! If it's a queen sized comforter, maybe use a couple of king sized sheets? Anyway, get your two pieces of fabric, sew it closed at one end, and put some kind of closeure-a zipper, velcro, buttons-at the other end. Stuff your comforter inside. 
Give it away to someone. Use it to make a pet bed, or give it to an animal shelter-they like having old blankets and such. Give it to a homeless shelter.
But making a duvet cover for it is the best answer I have for making it useable for you.
Hmm....use it as the batting layer for a pieced quilt top?

My question-What's something you can do with old videotapes? I can't knit or crochet.
2050  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: 101 Ways to Continue Crafting Without Breaking The Bank on: September 24, 2010 12:04:33 AM
48: You can get old books for almost nothing at Goodwill. 25 or 50 cents. I think? Use a hardcover book to make a booksafe. Cut a square out of all the pages, glue the edges.
Wonderfully garish cheap paperbacks? Make a wallet/billfold! Someone on craftster does marvelous ones from cheesy romance novels, ect., and has posted a tute. Or make a book purse! I know that there are lots of other crafts involving old books, this is what's off the top of my head.

And I'd love to see us reach the 101 ways, or even more!

49: Like to make shrink dinks? Shrink plastic is expensive? You can recycle certain types of other plastic instead. Plastic clear lids from take out, other clear plastic-like the insert from graham cracker pie crusts.Experiment, the time and temp may be a bit different from real shrink plastic. But it's worth experimenting. Read shrinky dink instructions first, and be careful. It's number 6 plastic, and here's a crafster link-
