211  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: 101 Ways to Continue Crafting Without Breaking The Bank on: October 04, 2009 12:17:22 PM
Another suggestion is actually behind the thrift store they often throw stuff out if it doesn't sell, so I go in the store in the daytime, and behind it at night

Sad. I have a hard time believing that thrift stores really want to help rather make a profit, when they throw out useable stuff and don't give homeless people free backpacks (Believe me, I have been there.)

22. The library often has shelves of free books and people often put magazines and ads on there. Also, they have big sales where books, magazines, and such are really cheap. If you go on the last day, they are usually a lot cheaper.

23. Ask your family and friends for old sheets for sewing. They are good to practice on or for embellishments. Also, you can make yarn out of them by cutting into strips. There is a good tutorial somewhere on this site.

24. Look around in nature. Grass and flowers are good for paper crafts. Cottonwood cannot be used to make yarn Sad But there are millions of cool rocks waiting to be turned into something. And long grasses and supple sticks are good for weaving. There are also lots of bones to find if you are morally okay with it. And tons of other stuff I can't think of right now.

I feel better. I did not realize that handwriting was hard to stitch, so that just happens to be my first embroidery project. lol. It is a mess.

Awesome job. I might steal this idea too. It is so cute.

This is amazing. At first I thought you had put it in the wrong folder becauuse it was a painting. And then I zoomed in and was like 'holy crap'.

P.S. My husband says, "Rainbow Bright is awesome."

Adorable. I always wished my mom would make me a ninja turtles mask, but I never asked so she never made me one. Go figure.

What is she wearing on her head? Did you make a birthday hat? I want one Smiley

This reminds me of that part in 'Bad Santa'. Where the boy makes him a wooden pickle 'painted' with his blood from when accidently cut himself while making.

lol. Good movie.

Gah, school and no crafts?

How are you managing? Do you need some emergency supplies? lol

I unwind during stressful times at school by cooking, cleaning, and crafting. It makes me feel less guilty about putting off my homework since I am accomplishing something, and not just wasting hours on a video game. These tasks are also easier to stop than watching tv or getting off the internets.

Oh this is so sweet. I know its bad, but I never bring I gift. I just help out with moving stuff. But this is  definitely awesome.

I was interested to hear about the read envelope. That is a good tradition since some people get disappointed when opening envelopes with out money in them.

1.   What do you think is the All-American dinner?
2.   Why do you feel this is the All-American meal?
3.   What state are you from?
4.   Do you think geography has any effect on what people think the All-American meal is?

1. I think of the All American dinner as hamburgers.
2. These are my favorite food and I remember so many meals centering around hamburgers, especially fast food and barbecues. I also ate a lot of hotdogs.
3. I am now in Wyoming, though I was born and raised in Montana and have traveled around a bit.
4. I think the availability of foods has a large role to play on people's perception of what a typical meal is. In my region, farming is not very practical. The prairie is no place for carrots (this is especially true in Wyoming) so instead of farmers we have ranchers. When I was in California, I ate so many oranges. You could just grab them off the trees, it was amazing. But here, there is the occasional apple tree, but mostly cows. There is also a large population that hunts and fishes, though they often spend loads more on gear than the food they get in return.

Also, economics play a huge role. A typical meal for an affluent family is much different from that of someone who does not have much. Deer meat plays both roles here (the government gives poor people the deer they kill to control the population). But other places it would be a delicacy, I suppose.

I hope this helped.
