2181  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: All Kinds of Steampunk Swap! Opening at the end of May on: June 15, 2010 06:14:48 PM
Steampunk swap? *drools* I don't know if I'll be free, but this would be sooo cool.
Wild West Steampunk, anyone? Oh, there's so many kinds of steampunk, all nifty.
2182  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Cartoons of the 90s Swap!!! on: June 15, 2010 05:58:47 PM
Heh. My DH and I used to come home from work, and sit back and watch the cartoons we recorded. Great way to unwind after a hard day!

Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, The Tick. Recess. Ducktails. Batman. Sooo much fun!
2183  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: June 11, 2010 01:53:35 PM
Soup. Canned tomatos, a chopped onion-or dried onion bits if I must. Any old veggies in the fridge-hey, too old for salad still works for soup. I saute the veggies a bit first. What? There's a can of corn and a can of mushrooms on the shelf? Score!Whatever spices sound good.
Hot sauce packets, or even barbeque sauce, or bouillon, or a couple of seasoning packages from ramen. Not all of the above! But seasoning of some kind.Taste as you go. Ballest-noodles, rice, beans and or potatos.Even wrinkled, sprouted potatos can be peeled down enough for use, you know.
It's called-"It's healthy, dammit" soup, and can be suprisingly tasty. I'll even make it when not broke, then I upgrade it a bit.

Warm cooked white rice with butter and brown sugar for breakfast, mmm. Rice is cheap, this is yummy.

And yay ramen, with any veggie I can find tossed in.

Dunno how weird these are, but good broke food.


2184  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Spagetti squash help, please? on: June 11, 2010 01:32:53 PM
Okay...I impulsively bought a spagetti squash at the grocery-what do I do with it? Anybody out there ever cook these? If I can figure out how, and get a recipe or two, I'll keep buying them. Didn't cost much, and hey-veggies are healthy.
Thanks!
2185  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Need craft for #50 paper grain and flour bags on: June 01, 2010 06:54:42 PM
What are the bags made of? Paper? Does your city recycle paper? I suppose anyone who makes handmade paper out of old paper could use a few, but you're talking lots.

When I worked at a store that was closing, all the paper bags were going to be dumpstered. I brought them home, and mulched my garden! A very thick layer of paper. Once it was watered, it stayed. I dumped a thin layer of leaves, grass clippings on top. Didn't take much. Smothered the weeds, and biodegraded nicely.

Good luck.

Oh, nice! Clever. Very cool indeed.

As a fellow compulsive picker upper of metal bits, I approve. I always have a pocket full of rusty bits...I love them.
Your bracelet is wonderful. I like it a lot.
2188  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Candle Board on: June 01, 2010 05:37:33 PM
That's why a candle area would be nice. They're posted all over the board. Perhaps a subsection in the Housewares/Interior design board?
Like you say, they are there, in Misc, in bath and beauty, ect.
And-I've made a couple of candles, but never soap. I don't know how much overlap there is. I've made a candle or two, but soap is a whole different animal.
*shrugs* I still think a board someday would be nifty.
2189  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Turning plastic lids into art frames... on: May 26, 2010 01:44:47 PM
Neat! Very pretty. I like what you did.
I've done something similar, with the plastic lids and metal rims from a can of salted nuts.  Here's a pic from the eco craftalong page. Waay back, page 45.

Wish I could draw or paint! Your sketch is so cute.
2190  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Recycled costume jewelry? Wire Wrapping Binge - pic heavy on: May 26, 2010 01:25:21 PM
Wow. Beautiful.
And thanks for the in process pics-not that I have any skill at wire wrapping-yet! But it was neat to see how it came together.
I looove taking apart old jewelry. Goodwill is my friend. I'm always digging through the odd and end and broken bin they sometimes have.
Again, wow!
