3911  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Fresh Apple Cider! on: October 20, 2008 08:01:21 PM
oooooooooooooooooo I love cider!  I can taste it now.

It's so much better than most of the store bought!  And yes, I'm going to try to let a little of it get fizzy and "adult".

oh man, i wish it was my friends storing a hundred year old cider press!

now we need a closer look at bigfoot Wink.

Yeah, I got lucky with them for all kinds of reasons!  The thing with Bigfoot is that he's hard to really capture on film as he's all mysterious and mythological and shtuff.

Some long-time and dear friends of mine are storing a 100-year-old cider press on their farm for a friend.  Every year they have several afternoons of cider pressing, doughnut making/eating and general enjoyment of the lovely fall days (and the crummy fall days).

Some fruit juice of our labors


Some of the action

My friend Bigfoot who travels with me near and far is on the bottom left.

THIS ROCKS!  And I'm going to click the button that says so.  Take that!

I have all of your books, Bigfoot and I'm a huge fan.  I even have an action figure of you that I take with me on vacation.

If you can't be just s smidgen inappropriate on Halloween, when can you?   Tongue  Besides, 28 is still young (which you will realize when you are in your early 30s) and certainly young enough to wear a mini skirt on Halloween.  It's your big chance to pretend to be slutty.   Wink

Actually if it was on an old phone, then use glass on top... Wink

Ah ha!  Especially if the last name of the recipient was Smith or something so you  could cover the whole thing with his/her name!  So many people I know don't even have land lines, though.  The world is so different...
3916  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Re: Utilize That Yellow Pages! on: October 19, 2008 09:25:35 PM
It really is a shame that phone books waste so many resources, not only in trees but in the energy required to produce and transport such heavy books.  On top of that, they're obsolete when you consider that people get address and numbers either online or through 1-800-FREE411 (we've got business, gov't, and residential listings, so we pretty much replace the phone book).

I suppose there may be a lot of crafty things you can do with phone books, but if you want to stop getting them delivered in the first place, there's an opt-out form at this link: http://www.yellowpagesgoesgreen.org/stop-yellow-pages/

Best wishes,

I know, the water, the fuel, etc. etc.  Ugh.  Regarding that link: awesome!  I'd no idea I could opt out of that!  I'm going to do it and forward the info on to my friends!  Meanwhile, I'm trying to use the paper from the two that were recently delivered at least one more time before recycling.

Excellent challenge them idea TheMistressT  Smiley

Thank you!  Too bad the phone book wouldn't look nearly so cool under glass mosaic as sheet music, eh? 
3917  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: gift bows! (yet another way to recycle magazines) tutorial added and more pics on: October 19, 2008 07:06:16 PM
I found that the bows I made with strips that I cut narrower didn't fill in and cover the brad so well.  The fatter ones (like the cat food can labels) filled in really nicely with just 7 or 8 strips/bow.
3918  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Paypal fee + Etsy Fee? WTH? on: October 18, 2008 10:02:06 PM
It's always frustrating to see a list of charges from different sources, but consider that many galleries or other retailers take 30 - 50% and it looks like the real bargain that it is.  I'm usually tickled with how little I'm charged by both.
3919  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Does Humor Sell on Etsy? on: October 18, 2008 09:52:40 PM
I use humor in my projects and I've sold a few things there.  It comes in fits and spurts, though which is sometimes frustrating.  Something about having the etsy store though, has increased non-etsy sales.  Your cartoons are a gas!

Leave it to you to post something awesome with resin!  You always make wonderful things with seemingly common objects and it's inspiring.

I feel your keyboard pain.  I don't know what started it, but my colon is broken.  If I move my finger in a circle it will eventually work, though.  I think I'll have to get a new keyboard, but in the meantime it's really fun to tell people.   Tongue
