Thanks for the explanation and the link...I am fascinated by processes...so few people these days understand where our basic everyday things come from...your handmade papers would be lovely for additions to altered art, notecards, etc.  I see handmade papers at art festivals all summer...a sheet lasts a long time...believe me, I have a drawer of them! Grin

hmmm...I never thought to trade them...maybe in some of the swaps it would make a nice extra!

Chirel, thanks for the links. Very pretty flowers. Good luck with the paper production. Never thought about making it to sell although I've certain bought it before. Duh! Boot to the head!

AIMR, yes, including some handmade papers as extras would be nice for all of us papercrafters, but I think it would be even more awesome if there were a swap. Maybe after the holidays since everything seems to be picking up right now.

I will save some of my flowers and herbs with paper in mind...I saw some mushrooms last week that I know produce a nice rich brown color...I always have hibiscus for reds-purples...I am going to start a box of papers to recycle for handmade instead of putting them in the recycle bin...I do need to hunt down a used blender...

I made some cloth napkins/cleaning towels for myself in the Fake Swap Craftalong, I faked joined the frugal swap. Also need a storage solution so I whipped up a quick little basket. I used up a bit of flannel, sweatshirt material, jean scraps and bias tape. The swap was what I needed to kick my but into sewing gear. I need to fake join another, apparently deadlines help my productivity.

The orange peel paper is just fascinating. It looks like it has a gorgeous texture. Now I just have to convince myself that I do not want to get into papermaking.

I've been destashing away. I've knit up some cat toys to donate to the animal shelter. In total, I made 20 to donate. I used up scrap pieces of the pinky shades of yarn, the end of a white skein, and 2 sheets of felt.


I've also started (finally!) on my Christmas gift making, so that will help me a lot. I've promised myself that I am only going to use what is currently in my bedroom.

I'm back with yet another decade long project Cheesy

Years ago I dabbled at pottery and made some project that resulted with tiny clay stars. I fell in love with those and decided to try to make beads from them. It was a risk, but they worked! The holes I'd made stayed open. I painted the stars and did nothing with them. Fast forward ten years (at least) and here they are Smiley

Chirel, Those are really cute! I'm not sure how long they are, but they remind me of a princess necklace for a little sweet princess.  Wink

Just long enough to comfortably reach around my neck, so they might work on a child too Smiley There's a fourth one too, but I ran out of dark coloured clasps. I'll need to make a list and wait a while before I dare go into the bead store again Cheesy They sell clasps individually, but somehow I end up spending 40 euros every time I go there.
