I've never bought these,but I know a lot of cities have biodegradable bags for people to put their lawn clippings,ect. in.Bigger than a kitchen bag,and I don't know how much they run-but if they're cheap enough,you could cut them down a bit.
And yeah,the giant bags you get bird seed and pet food in,if you know someone who'll save theirs for you.
I've got a gardening book somewhere that suggets brushing a paper bag with linseed oil(Maybe just vegetable oil) to make it sturdy enough to fill with dirt and plant in,although I don't understand how oil could make paper sturdy.I think it was Trowel and Error;I'll see if I can dig it up.
2512  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Unconditional supply swap or give to a less fortunate crafter swap? on: January 27, 2008 07:57:23 PM
I like it too! The ones with too many supplies send a boxfull,others sending lightweight freebies,and everyone making something from what they recieved.
quote from KittyVegas-"I suddenly had a vision of two crafters going to a Chinese restaurant. One crafter distracting the person at the counter with questions of lo mein and another crafter stuffing chop sticks and duck sauce in their pocket."
Also-fliers from local bands taken from the coffeeshops,bags from local stores,,bottlecaps-don't you love jones soda caps?-whatever free alternative weekly paper your city has,and the advertising magnets,pens,keychains,ect. that stores give away, interesting pebbles,fortunes from fortune cookies-yeah,we could have fun.It'd be stuff your partner wouldn't have  in their area and could have fun with-more than fair value for their craft supplies.
And I've seen picture frames and place mats made from chopsticks.Don't know about the duck sauce. Cheesy I really did scrounge an extra chinese take out box because it was round instead of square,and pretty and red.Haven't done anything with it yet.

YKYACW-your clear nail polish is used more for glue/sealer on crafty things than is actually used on your nails.

Outline a picture of a famous mathematician.Use the words to do so,instead of drawing lines.
Or a wizard,the traditional robe & pointy hat with cabalistic symbols,but use math symbols-call it a mathemagician.Add objects into your poster-either real,or photos of-ruler,calculator,compass,protracter,ect.
Make a poster of a big bowl of alphabet soup,float the words in it.
2516  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Will you help me flush out this idea? Tree Fairies for the Holidays. on: January 24, 2008 11:35:32 AM
Tree sprites is good.I love them,but have to admit I think of the moon when I see them.Call them Moon Children? So of course they sleep during the day-and moonbeams and magic and wishes all seem to go together.The last month/full moon of the year is a  special magical one,and the moon children come down to share their magic then.This may be a little too new agey for you-not my intention-but that's what they make me think of.

2519  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Steampunk swap (Sign-ups closed, partners announced 7th Send Feb 5) on: January 21, 2008 08:34:18 AM
I finally got my first item finished! And I did a lot of the grunt work on the second yesterday,getting pieces ready.Still have a ways to go,but it's getting there.
Handy tip-you know how when you unpackage something,it's often held in place by lots of plastic coated wire,and it takes forever to untwist it all to free it? That wire makes the best clamps ever! Twist it tightly around whatever you've glued to hold it in place-it's fabulous for oddly shaped items.I knew there was a reason I put that in the junk drawer instead of tossing it.
The Unique Thrift Store in my area is having a half price off everything sale,today only-so I'm off to shop.Let's see if I have enough will power to get clothes before I blow my budget on craft stuff. Grin
