I do not like the fragrance smell either...that is why I want to try the litter thing...I have to air all of the stuff out for days before I can bring it into my room...it is overwhelming...

I'm not big on fragrances either.  I remember one of my grandmothers gave me a head ache regularly...well her perfume did at least...to be honest she did too Grin.  I recently got this cute Hello Kitty air freshener for my car.  I was thinking it would dissipate quickly...no.  Last time I drove my car (which isn't often) I decided it smelled like Brain Damage Grin

Thanks for all your suggestions!  I'm going to have to try the kitty litter thing.  Maybe I'll just go ask the neighbor if I can borrow a cup.  Grin  I hope I don't have to wait too long for it to work-- I want to get started right now!  Why can't the stupid stores just carry exactly what I want?  I guess it's forcing me to behave and use my stash.  Unless any of you have a yard of solid black brocade you want to destash....

If that "what are you making" was for me--

I sew costumes in exchange for a tuition break for my daughters' ballet.  This year they're doing Snow White, and I'm starting on the Evil Queen.  I've been excited about this for months, but they only just cast the parts and I needed to wait for measurements.  The Evil Queen is going to have a black bodice and romantic tutu.  Then I'm embellishing it with a peacock motif to represent her pride and vanity.  These will be removable so that the base can be used for other characters later on.  And I wanted brocade because satin just looks so flat and dull from the audience, and I neeed the texture.

Oh, I amjust ever so delicate and sensitive, la.

I totally "heard" this as spoken by Kitty from Pride and Prejudice, heee. Needed this!

Destinking stuff for me usually means putting things outside or putting it through the wash again and again and again... until not smelly anymore (or ruined). I have issues with fragrances, too, funny.

All these great projects, and so many lovely pictures! And so many large projects.

In stashbusting news only I managed to destash some beads for a weightloss thingy, half a sheet for a crib sheet, some more towels for changing mat covers, and about two sheets of thick felt plus notions, a bit of ribbon and scraps for an easy busy book. That one was even made with pink! Didn't really make a dent, but they were all things I really wanted to get done.



The little busy book - four kinds of closures she meets with daily. I have to practise sewing on ribbon, I'm afraid.

And the beaded weight loss thing. I was planning to do something with two small jars, but then I didn't have the space to put those down. This is much more practical, I just pull own the little ring as I go along. Although, for the next six months, that ring will go up, no way around that.


February was very very busy, as was January, but the good thing about that is that I didn't even get a chance to buy anything crafty. (If you discount black paint for the handrail, that is. But we had to get that done before the steps get mounted and there isn't any left to be added to any stash that might or might not exist...) March is probably not going to be much better, but we are putting up our desk and bookshelves in the living room this weekend (please!), and that means lots of space in the craft room for me.

Aaand I bought a craft book today - on making lamp beads. So that is 0.00 for Jan-Feb, and 6.99 for March... All I can say is that book was put on hold for me by my husband, and it wasn't even full price. And I won't be getting any of the materials this year or anytime soon.

I only spent $3.50 in craft supplies this month. My yearly total is $4.55. I used up 3 skeins of yarn too.
