1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / How do YOU display your Christmas cards? on: December 22, 2010 11:18:48 AM
Every year, I try to think of a clever way to display the Christmas cards that my loved ones send me. And every year, I draw a BLANK!

How do YOU display YOUR'S???

Discuss.  Kiss

This is SUCH an excellent idea and I don't know WHY these haven't been around forever! I don't cook much (I'm trying to change that...), but one of my biggest peaves is trying to find a safe spot for everything - where it won't burn through whatever I set it on AND it's accessible. And this is DECORATIVE, too!!! What more could you ask for?!

I think you can go to the craft store (i.e. Michael's or Hobby Lobby) OR possibly even Home Depot or Lowe's and buy rrrreeeaaalllly thin sheets of wood.

Here is an example:


I think you can find some that are even thinner than that.

Anyway, you could buy one of more of these, make a template, and make several of them. The good thing about wood is you can cut it to suit your needs, paint it, cover it with something (decorative/scrapbook paper, for example), and do just about anything to embelish it (i.e. add buttons and bows to the ones you use in the baby department).

I also agree with the statment about asking a place like Walmart for THEIR clothing dividers if you want more of what you already have. I would talk to a manager, though, so as not to get a store associate in trouble. Hehe. I work at a department store and sometimes we have an ABUNDANCE of those sorts of things. They either end up in a huge box somewhere not being used or trashed.

Hope this helped!

I was going to say the same thing about using them to plant tiny cactuses/cacti - because I just bought my mother-in-law a cute little cactus garden for Mother's Day! I don't really know anything about gardening or plants but I don't think small cactuses require a lot of space for roots - which is why, I guess, you often see one small flower pot with several different little cacti in it.
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / A glorified Pringles can... on: May 23, 2010 05:12:27 PM
When I went to Greece two summers ago, I brought back this cardboard can. It contained a Greek alcoholic beverage called "Ouzo." Believe it or not, I didn't consume the alcohol myself. I don't drink - AT ALL - and have never seen one of these before... so I don't know if they're a common item at liquor stores or if I have something unique.

Anyway, it's basically a glorified Pringles can. It's cardboard, but it's much stronger and more durable than the cardboard of an actual Pringles can.

Any ideas of what I could do with this thing?

I used to work at a daycare center and one of my 6-year-olds used a rice bag as her backpack.

She had absolutely no idea how cool she was.

As money is tight for me this holiday season - and because I like to give "gifts from the heart," I had the idea of trying to make my own soap to give away this Christmas - and I wanted it to be frankincense and myrrh soap. =)

My questions are...

1.) How "difficult" is it to learn how to make soap? i.e. > would it make sense to attempt to make soap as Christmas presents if I've never even made soap before?

2.) Does anyone have any instructions for frankincense and myrrh soap?

3.) Are there any ways I could incorporate gold into the soap? Even if they weren't "useable"? For example, decorative gold coils or flakes that could be "placed inside" the soap? Or - could I find a fake gold coin to place inside each bar of soap?

Any instructions, advice, etc, etc, etc, would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for reading!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / gold sheet metal? on: March 12, 2008 05:22:25 PM
I posted this here because I wasn't really sure what other category to put it under.

What I'm looking for is some kind of material to make two really wide, golden cuff bracelets out of. Like, at least four or five inches long. I'm trying to go for a slave/gladiator/Egyptian/Greek look. I'm getting married in June and I'm going for a "Grecian Princess" look (as dorky as that may sound) because I'm half-Greek.

Any ideas on what I could use and where I could get it?
