I just discovered this thread. Wow! But I think it'll take a wee while to get through all the pages...Smiley
I saw Frugal Fridays-what other days do you do, and what are they? So many neat ideas.
Congratualtions to the crafster with the baby on the way! Try to discourage people from buying baby outfits if you can. My girl was given oodles of them-and babies grow so fast, she never got to wear all of them. Or at least gently suggest they buy ahead, in larger sizes? People have a hard time resisting cute things.
I could see making the plastic fabric that people do with plastic bags and an iron, and using that to make the back of baby bibs, also using an old terry cloth towel for the front-so absorbant for spills, and still keeping the mess from leaking through onto the clothes?
It seems every baby shower I've been to is clothes and stuffed toys. I've switched to giving children's books, if I don't know of something special they need.
I had a rolling wheeled baby cart-a bit like a bassinet, but not basket like. It was rectangular like a mattress, had mesh sides, about as tall as my bed, not very big. It was wonderful when she was tiny. It was next to the bed at night, great for feedings and cuddles. It moved with me from room to room during the day. My mom bought it at a yard sale, and I gave it away when my dd outgrew it.
I read back far enough to see dryer balls mentioned, something made from old sweaters? What are they?
Oh, if you have a collapsible wooden drying rack for clothes, here's an odd tip I found in a book. During the winter, she'd hang wet laundry on it and put it in her child's room, instead of running a dehumidifier. Said it worked like a charm.
Looking forward to joining the frugally goodness!

2113  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What are your favorite salad toppings/ingredients? on: June 26, 2010 09:47:41 PM
I love tomato salad, and I never follow the recipe. Slice tomatos. Mix basalmic vinegar and olive oil. I've used red wine vinegar, too. And canola oil if that was all I had. I add salt, pepper, basil-I never have fresh on hand like I should. And dried minced onion. Plenty of it. Flavorful without being too strong, especially if I don't feel like dicing an onion! I let it sit a while before nomming. I dump it in a bowl, liquid and all, and devour.

And I keep frozen peas on hand-nice extra salad veggie, for tossed salad. 
2114  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Spagetti squash help, please? on: June 26, 2010 09:22:54 PM
I like spagetti squash! I cooked half of it in the oven, half in the microwave. Taste about the same either way.  It's neat how it shreds, and it does shred easier after sitting a few minutes. I had mine with lots of butter and salt. Yummy! Pasta sauce next time, for sure.
And it'll be easier the next time I deal with one. Yay-a new veggie to add to the repetoire. Thanks for all the tips, everyone!

I have a friend who's made these for a while-she uses movie poster icons from old pulp movies, with femme fatales.
Very cool necklaces. I like these a lot!

2117  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: what can i do with plastic toy containers from machines on: June 19, 2010 06:15:47 PM
Heh, I made a mobile for my daughter's room years ago, with stars and planets. I took one of those, popped it open, put in a little spikey plastic ball that I added a googlely eye or three onto to make an alien, and added it on. It's a neat little flying saucer.
I like the Martian city idea.

The gear/cog at the bottom of the first one, numbered like a clock, with a spinner arrow is giving me ideas...
Nice cards.
