2041  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Sign ups 10/1-10/15, Sendouts 12/6) on: November 03, 2010 08:39:46 PM
Been slightly down because something always seems to take up my days off. Life got hectic suddenly. But today I covered a dollar store item with the first layer of paper and glue. It's amazing what a mood brightener having paint and glue on your hands is.  Smiley Hoping the prototype turns out well!
And I had a nice thrift store trip today. I found something nifty and unusual, if I can just brainstorm the best way to use it.
And I bought a block of polyclay, which I have hopes for. If the ideas in my head translate well...we'll see.

Bubble wrap. Someone on here made window curtains of it-it looked really nifty. Gave privacy, let light in. Or just stick some directly to the window.
Here's a link to just putting it on the window-water was all she used!

I have one too! Mine's a tree and a cabin in the woods, it came from a yard sale years ago-I've had it at least 25 years. I've wondered about it just like you. The reverse glass painting is so cool.
I love how yours look, and the paint job you did on the frames.

It was, and I did. Found a couple of items at the dollar stores that may work very well for something nifty! I'll try a prototype wednesday.

Have most of my supplies, and most of my ideas. I still want another shopping trip. Smiley
Finished a long work week, and longer days off (yard sale, clearing brush-darn rose shrub drove a thorn through my fingernail!) Wednesday should be play day!

Finally finished painting the house! I know what I'm making, now I just need a day off work to really get started.
Wheeeee!
Super busy week. Next day off is wednesday. But I'm going shopping sunday before work.

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?
2050  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A Green Idea Chain Game 2010 on: October 14, 2010 10:44:57 AM
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?
