am i the only one who can never remember what they've put on the questionnaires?!
i'm excited to start for my partner, but am concerned now that i wasn't clear or may have been confusing! (i know i feel confused now!)

ack- i'll just leave it all up to you my dear, and i'll get on with treating you to some thrifty, homemade goodies!  Cheesy
I always forget what I put on my questionnaire!! I've started saving a copy in my outbox now so I can go back and look later!! Smiley

I think I have just the perfect partner. You may not be able to tell from my pasts posts, but we have similar taste.

So in a way, I get to play in my favorite things while making them for you.  Cheesy

I'm a little bit country, and I'm a little bit rock and roll.

yea for partners..............I LOVE MINE (maremare)............and will have a hard time not sending a truck to deliver all the stuff I want to make for her...........

hope everyone is as happy with their partner as I am with mine.... Cheesy

She's not joking. That's what they make flat rate boxes for, right, Mindy?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my partner and I've made a few things for her, plus doubles for myself! I am going to have to research shipping costs for this....

I had another idea of things that could be made to help us be more frugal..greeting cards.
The ones in the stores are usually at least $3-5 if not more! (Not including the super simple 99cent cards.) So a package of pretty handmade greeting cards for things like birthdays, weddings, showers, baby births, graduations, etc. would be nice.
(I know personalized notecards on on the list, but greeting cards weren't...they are quite similar.)

I'm totally sticking with my resolution to make all my birthday/etc cards tihis year, when I wrote a list of all the birthday, Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Anniversary, Valentines Day blah blah blah I had over 40 cards and that's jyst for family and a handful of close friends, and not including Christmas even. So far I've made all the cards up til March and it's going to save me a bundle.

Does anyone know if you can recreate the Pampered Chef Hand Soap Foam bottle gadget (turns regular hand soap liquid into foam by filling the bottle up to a certain level and topping it up with water. Anyone know how to do that or know if I could just use another empty foam container to save on handsoap etc? Can't justify the Pampered Chef price tag especially when I only want it to save money!!

P.s Yay for partners, and how lucky am I, not only do I have a lovely partner but she's visiting my city at the end of the month so we can hand each other our parcels and save on shipping. This is the best swap everrrr!!  Grin

I've refilled the Dial soap containers with no problems before.  They don't seem to last that long, but my Pampered Chef didn't either.  I can't remember what the ratio is, though.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

Eeek!  Happy noise!  I can't wait!  I get a weekend away from my kids, a refreshing conference to attend and I get to meet you and swap in person!!  Grin  Three weeks can't go fast enough.  Well, as long as I can find lots of crafting time in there somewhere. Smiley

Baby number four is here and he's a boy!!  Time to start using all the great stuff I got from a bunch of Craftster friends:

My issue with coupons is I've been trying to "eat clean" and I'm not going to use coupons for processed foods like Kraft.  
I just started getting a magazine called "Clean Eating." It's really great and has lots of recipes with reasonable ingredients (price and availability) and they are quite tasty. Just thought you might want to check that out. Smiley

I have to say, my swap partner is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!  I can't wait to get started on some great crafts, frugal style!  YAY
