561  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: traveler swap? on: April 10, 2008 07:52:07 AM
I also travel quite a bit for work.  I think it would be interesting to include items from recent travels as well as things that make travel a little easier/more fun . . . like a cool organizer for in-flight craft projects, one of those neck pillows, fun slippers/socks, etc. 
562  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Bean mosaic help please! on: April 07, 2008 01:37:26 PM
It may take some searching, but you should be able to find popcorn kernals in different colors.  It's usually called Indian corn (or at least that's what we called it growning up) and I know that I've seen some in the blue/purple color category at some point. 

If you're in an area with a large whole foods store . . . or smaller ethnic stores . . . it may be worthwhile scanning their aisles for different colored beans/grains. 
563  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: No more poking needles in armrests ... an embroidery armrest organizer on: April 01, 2008 01:55:01 PM
This is one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time.  No more "lost" needles!  No more scissors being sat upon by a cat that will not leave my side!  No more floss/yarn tidbits floating around the sofa/floor/clothes I'm wearing!  Now, I think I need one, my mom needs one, my sister needs one . . . great job!
564  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: a sampler I designed... on: April 01, 2008 01:39:11 PM
This is so great!  I love the idea of designing your own sampler and including both "new to you" and "tried and true" stiches -- so much more personal than completing a sampler from a kit.  I bet your friend was completely overwhelmed at this gift!

565  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Nutella, anyone? on: April 01, 2008 09:54:26 AM
I haven't made anything with Nutella yet because it's so good when you keep it simple.  Nutella with bananas or strawberries or over toast is wonderful!  Of course, some of the ideas in this thread now have me thinking that some Nutella-baking is coming up!
566  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Your favourite sandwiches on: April 01, 2008 09:52:06 AM
I like all sorts of sandwiches, but 2 classics stand out --

1.  Grilled cheese - sometimes the old-fashioned white bread/american cheese, sometimes more upscale cheeses and breads.  Any melted cheese/bread combo turn out great!

2.  BLT - but the bacon has to be really good, meaty bacon and the best tomatoes are home-grown or from a farmer's market.  A great add-on is avocado, making it a BLTA
567  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Has anyone bought Crate & Barrel furniture? on: March 31, 2008 03:18:02 PM
The only furniture I've purchased from Crate & Barrel are bookshelves -- which were great, but I had to assemble them.  When I was looking for living room furniture, there were a few pieces I was considering, but ultimately ended up going with furniture from a privately-owned furniture store.

I've purchased a lot of other things from C&B -- kitchen storage, utensils, holiday decorations, my favorite Eva Zeisel dishware, etc -- and trust them.

If this helps, I'd say that they're better quality than Ikea and more affordable than Room and Board. 
568  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: piano? on: March 31, 2008 03:08:12 PM
My high school piano instructor used an old upright piano as a storage unit for piano music.  The top part was gutted, but she kept the swinging lid (the one you'd open to see all of the strings/keys) intact so there would be a cover.  It was great!  A very nice contrast to the 2 side-by-side baby grands in her basement piano studio. 
569  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Have you ever set yourself a cooking challenge? on: March 31, 2008 02:55:32 PM
I've also done the freezer/cupboard challenge when I find that my supply of staple goods is overflowing.

I just recently became interested in bento boxes, so I'm contemplating how to start incorporating those into my life.

Finally, I'm always impressed by people who say that they have cooked their way through a cookbook.  That would be the ultimate challenge! 
570  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: FLOWER SWAP on: March 31, 2008 02:03:10 PM
My second bedroom is full of all sorts of flowers -- would definitely be interested in participating if the timing's right!
