The boxes are gorgeous. I was thinking about trying to make one. I have some old National Geographics. Is there a tut somewhere?

I am sure there is I learned at summer camp.  Basically you cut pieces of paper in 2 inch by 3 inch sections (I highly recommend a paper cutter) then starting at a corner you roll it around a small stick of some kind (I have used a paper clip, a pencil, an incense stick, etc.) then you stick the rolled tubes together by sliding one into the other.  I am not sure if this makes sense or not but I hope it gets you started.  I really enjoy all the different crafts that you can make with rolled paper and since I have a magazine addiction it works well for me.

OK, this picture is not the best. Replaced old camera and still having issues so I have to use my cell phone. Therefore, you probably won't get a good view of all the fabulous things I received from Miss Barbara.



The package included:
    A plarn bag
    A jewelry holder and a rock pendent
    Crochet items: scarf, wreath and bath mitt
    Paper goods: Recycling book, recycled craft article and bumper sticker
    A bank
    A mini sewing kit
    A milk jug bowl

Whew, did I miss anything Miss Barbara??

BTW, your package will arrive in two parts because one item did not fit in the box ... lol. Again, my apologize for the delay in posting.

The only purpose of the day job is to buy the craft supplies!! Cheesy  Seriously, I LOVE making personalized crafts. I now have a line of hand-crafted fans and notecards using the Zentangle (R) technique. I have also become a Certified Zentangle Teacher and teach other artforms and techniques.

I received from Myrna Minx today. She says there's one more little surprise in the works but said she wanted to send the bulk of the package on time. Smiley
 
Here's some cute little handprint plaques she sent me. The kiddos and I already printed them. My two-year-old wouldn't hold her hand still but I think it turned out regardless. I thought this was a cute idea. Smiley



She also sent some recycled crayons. She also sent me some silky fabric bits, which I think would make a great purse lining.



Here are some cute owl charms she found at a garage sale. Love these.



And then she sent me this dreamboat. Just look at all that sexy chest hair.  Tongue I will definitely find a good use for him and rest of this vintage magazine.



If you are wondering, who's this guy?! I just wikied him.

Evigan is best known for his work in three hit television series:

    * 1979's B.J. and the Bear, where he starred as B.J. McKay, a truck driver whose best friend was a chimpanzee named Bear;
    * 1987's My Two Dads in which a teenage girl is raised by two past boyfriends of her deceased mother together when it cannot be determined which is the father (My Two Dads lasted until 1990); and
    * mid-1990s TekWar, a sci-fit hit based on a series of books by Star Trek elder statesman William Shatner (who also co-starred). TekWar originated as a series of television movies in 1994 and then became a series in 1995.


Finally, she used some old frames, fabric and bird pics (I told her I like birds) to create some art.



I have to confess--I disassembled on them, added a few ribbons and buttons to the silky backdrop fabric and am using it for some antique photos--so I guess that's a triple-recycle. Wink Don't worry though. The bird photo survived. I decoupaged him onto some poster board. I think he just might show up on a dotee art doll.


Thanks Myrna!
Oh, here's the group shot.

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

Please check the list on the first page and make sure you are marked correctly for sending and/or receiving. There are a few people in my group that still need to check in (and possibly one or two in Pixieval's group too). We need to hear from you if you are marked incorrectly or haven't sent yet.

Thanks!
