Look at you!  All would be better in this world if you could buy some love at the Home Depot! 


I should mention that the Home Depot doesn't sell that size of cans (at least not the 8 or so I go to when I haven't another option).  I LOATHE "The Despot"... at least for paint and paint-related items (which I need for my work) and I'd say that 60% of the time (at least) they don't have what I'm looking for in other departments.  I'm fresh off a very frustrating Despot situation, so... a bit raw.

ANYWAY, if anyone was interested the pint-sized unused cans were purchased at my local True Value hardware store.  A real hardware store.

What other projects do you all have going on in addition to this swap?

Did you have to ask that?  I thought for a moment, "All I have are that pair or flannel boxers to sew and those Ikea curtain panels http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70110279 to modify, hem and install the hardware."  Then I thought, "Oh yeah and paint the dining room and finish the ShimmerStone http://www.modernmasters.com/products.aspx?pl=SS on the living room ceiling and finish the insulated shade for the stairwell window and make exterior shades for the south- and west-facing windows and mail out Valentines and clean/organize the entire basement and oh, yeah take down the xmas decorations that I was too sick to do in January and set up a new home network and find those things listed in my signature for this photo project and then do that project and do more work on my embroidered pillowcases and finish mounting my toothpaste collection  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=216741.msg2330404#msg2330404 and work on a potential personal swap for a dear craftster who has offered some toothpaste from Asia...

THANKS A LOT, violet_thistle!   Wink

Ha!  That's nothing!  When I start organzing it, I'll take a before pic and post the results.  I've boxes and bins and bags (crafting and non-crafting things) stacked from 2'-7' high and by "stacked", I mean "piled" on about 80% of the floor's surface.  Loose stuff occupies another 10-12%.  It is, by far, the messiest space I've every owned or occupied outside of a garage and I think even my garage is better as most of the boxes, bins and loose items are on/under the shelves/table or in a set of drawers.  I've probably got about 30% available floorspace out there.  Anyway, I just heard the dryer quit which means that I might be able to start really crafting another piece of this puzzle!

Holy schmoly!  Those are so realistic that I almost clicked "back" when I saw them, because I don't cook.  But, I caught a glimpse of the title before I clicked and took a second look.  They don't look any less real when you know they aren't.  The fact that they're so tiny is even more impressive.  You have some polymer clay skills!  Nice work!

WOW!  Those look so much better on people than on pillows or even on the dress form!  I'm in awe of the skills and patience it would take to make well-crafted corsets like yours.

Thanks!  Hopefully all those that took some time off from sweets will be able to have some by now.

So, I like to give my special vendors and businesses that refer clients to me a little something to show my appreciation.  They are often loaded down with sweets in December, so this year I decided to give them Valentines.

I made labels with PhotoShop and covered Hershey's Nuggets with them.  There are 6 styles of labels randomly placed on 4 flavors of Nuggets.

These are pint-sized, unused paint cans purchased at the hardware store.  The paper wrap is actually opalescent and the lighter-weight version of the paper my business cards are printed on and is attached with 2-sided tape.  I got lucky that the diameter of the can is 10.5 inches so I could get 2 wraps out of letter-sized sheet.  I made these clear labels with Word using jpg files I'd already made in Photo Shop and regular word processing. 

I punched a small hole in my business card, ran some red curling ribbon through it and attached the ribbon to the can lid with 2-sided tape, then topped it with a red bow. There are about 30 chocolates in the cans, at least enough for the whole crew at any of these businesses.

Thanks for looking and Happy Valentine's Day!
