You're right, sewknitter, I can microwave and use scissors!!!  Tongue

I was thinking about dyeing the recycled yarn.... I'll have to check out that microwave kool-aide recipe... You know that infamous neighbor of mine keeps taunting me with her DYE STUDIO!  Angry I gotta just go pound on her door and not stop until she lets me in to play!
Alright, I gotta just commit to a project and get started... I can't wait until the last minute cuz who knows if I will be crafting while driving a moving van!!!! Ahhh!

Here's what I would love to see from someone:

more jewelry
a simple tank top?
resin
wrist bands of some sort
hair adornments
can anyone make lotion?
roving
hand painted yarn
chop stick crochet hooks or knitting needles
art/wall hangings


Ok, I was just brainstorming for what to offer myself, and all I could come up with are things that I can't/don't know how to do!!!

Ice cream cozies and flip flop sox eh? Hmm... maybe so...

Ooh, I make really nice lotion! (if I don't mind saying so myself...but other people say so too!) I use a blend of nice oils--rice bran, sunflower, evening primrose, avocado and shea butter. If I did an 8 ounce lotion and a soap that would easily be in the $7-10 range....I actually sell my lotions for $8, so maybe I would do a lotion and lip balm. Would anybody else be interested in this? I could custom scent/flavor the items, I have probably 60+ fragrances and maybe a dozen lip balm flavors.

Hopefully I will get feedback on my current swap in time to participate. I totally stalked the last round and loved everything!

i didnt want to be too redundant with the pocket mirrors so i wasnt sure. i also wanted to offer something a little different. im having some problems with my 2 1/4 machine. i might offer 5 but well see..

on another note, would anyone be interested in matchbook scrapbooks? they are about 2 inches wide, 2.5 tall and then when opened, 8-9 inches of accordian album. i will put 8 pictures in there (including cover) and do any theme you want (flowers, your favorite pet, a movie, movie star, band, your kids, your wedding, whatever Smiley)

example:
gerard way (lead singer of my chemical romance) one i did for my friend








marilyn monroe one for me Cheesy








or how about button/magnet sets from images of your choice?

Those matchbox scrapbooks are adorable! I love the Marilyn one!

So many great things already. Cheesy

I guess I'm in for this round. I need to get all this swapping out of my system before law school starts. Wink I will be offering silk screened canvas tote bags. When I mentioned this a couple rounds ago I was going to do a deer print -- but I came up with something crafty and cute that I'll go with instead. More info/pics later. Wink

The silk screen totes sound cool, Novastarlet - I use the cup cake pouch I got from you in another round all the time as my makeup bag. It get lots of comments.

And someone mentioned lotion and lip balm - I am a lip balm addict and lotion is always good.

I will offer the metal bookmarks I made before. I can't decide whether to go into the pot one or twice.

I might make earrings and/or charms...or I am working on a new bracelet design.


And Java- try the KoolAid wool dyeing  in the microwave - it's fun and easy.
