Your lamp is incredibly clever! I also like the window frame with pictures and leaves on your wall, and I'm jealous of the old Singer.Does it work?

I am so sorry. I wish I had a good idea for you, but all I can do is offer you my sympathy. It stinks that someone did that!

I could see your poem on the cover of a blank book or journal-especially one used for crafting inspiration.Great poem!

How about sea monsters and mermaids? I've only been to the ocean once, but I agree, beautiful theme for a swap. I have an ocean collage made of scavenged stuff that hangs on my back fence(it's sheltering under the eaves until winter is over).Scrap linoleum in an old frame, blue paint layered with glitter, junk jewelry sea creatures, and seaweed made from plastic stems and leaves from silk flowers.And a few coats of sealer. It'll disintigrate someday, but I like having it in my yard.

I heard from elwynceltic almost right away! I've got one item done, a small done, and one that's in the big mess spread out everywhere stage.  I love making a big mess and using glue and glitter. It's like being a kid, only I don't have an adult to help clean up later,or bring me snacks. Grin

Ha, I used an altoid tin also! And probably not for what you think. :
But it's part of my favorite item so far.

Not off topic at all-we're bonding! Craftsters who giggle together make more inspired crafts;it's a scientific fact.
Being from Kentucky, we do say y'all a lot, and despise the hillbilly stereotype. I remember reading that the dialect speak from the mountains is loaded with pure elizabethan english-phrases like 'come in and sit for a spell",ect.Funny American words-a critter is an animal.A varmit is a pesky critter.

I confess, I love any kind of an english accent. Hee,years ago a drop dead gorgeous englishman used to stop by a place I worked-every woman there would try to keep him talking just a little longer Cheesy

Okay,something fairy tale related-The muffin man,the demon baker of drury lane! Pies by Peter Peter!(Peter Peter pumkin eater,had a wife and couldn't keep her, so he put her in a pumpkin shell,and there he kept her very well).Shades of sweeny todd!

Steampunk Santa? That's an image I won't get out of my head for a while! And great loot!

Gleep, I'm so sorry about your kitty.
2220  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: OK guys.. plastic pockets?? And Ringbinders?? on: March 11, 2008 08:00:01 PM
Use a ring binder as a craft binder.Ideas of crafts to try,scraps of fabric/paper that appeal for inspiration,patterns, magazine articles.If you make paper crafts, it and the pockets can hold epherma and scraps to craft with,or ribbon and embroidery floss.And decorate the binder itself, of course.
Fill one with recipies, cover with food labels and ads-maybe fill with family favorites for a gift?
Look up pictures and tutes on book purses-maybe use that to make a binder purse?
Cut a couple up,use glue and colored duct tape to make boxes, or magazine holders.
Cut off the top and bottom.Use the 2 flat pieces as matting for art,cut to fit a frame.Could the spine with the clip hooks be hung somewhere to hold things? Keys,necklaces,ect.
If it's clear,fill the plastic pocket with art,comics,ect.Heat seal just the edges with a warm iron,and an old cloth between the towel and the plastic.Careful,some plastic shrinks. And you don't want melted plastic on your iron! Then-hang them,or make wallets,or cut one down first and glue a magnet on the back-free advertising magnets are good.I'm suggesting a boatload of things I haven't done myself-just trying to think what the heck to make with ring binders and plastic pockets! Good luck!
