1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Hearing aid batteries on: November 18, 2013 09:07:22 PM
As we are gracefully aging hippies, hubs found out the hard way that a lot of loud music can damage your hearing, and of course that involves hearing aides with those pesky hearing aid batteries. You read about children and animals eating them and dying-yikes! They OF COURSE" don't make rechargeable batteries, and they have to be changed weekly.

I am left with cute little silver buttons filled with battery acid. Is there anything I can safely do with these things? Oh-they also are NOT recyclable

How much do they hold? I make my own laundry detergent and I am always looking for 5 gallon buckets to store the concentrate.

My friend does a different themed Christmas tree in each room of her house and she used old Happy Meal toys for the ornaments on her playroom tree.  But you may want to Google McDonalds collectibles to make sure none of them are worth some money!  Last time I had a yard sale I set out a box of old Happy Meal toys and a lady who collects them bought the whole box, she said some of them are really worth a lot of money...

I used Lion Brand Homespun-it comes out gorgeous!

I use shortening to roll our fondant-all over the mat, the rolling pin and my hands. Try 10X sugar instead of cornstarch if you need something...

Marshmallow fondant is awesome and easy to make!  You can roll the store-bought kind thinner, but it's expensive and it tastes awful.

Google "mashmallow fondant" and you will find the directions, all you need is a 16 oz bag of marshmallows, a pound of 10X sugar and some water.  I mix mine in my Kitchenaid mixer-much easier than by hand.


8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: new earrings on: June 15, 2005 07:55:22 AM
Okay...stupid question time!

I have been playing around with making jewelry (I am usually more a yarn sort of girl) and I know there is probably a simple way to get jump rings together but I am too boneheaded to figure it out!

I've just been trying to poke a fingernail between the wires but I end up breaking off nails...so does anyone have an easier way?  I'd LOVE to make some earrings like these but end up frustrated and nail-less...
