I have actually seen packages of random stamps you can buy at Michaels, but that was like a year ago.  I remember they came in a red cloth bag and you got 300 for $2.99, or something.  So I would recommend checking your local craft store, like A.C. Moore, for bunches of stamps.  The only reason I had so many different ones was because my dad works for a company that does business with clients all over the world.  He saved the stamps from back in the day when email wasn't used as much yet.

Those lap robes are a wonderful idea!  Also, I used to have some of those silky blankies when I was young, and I too found their silk edge very soothing.  I also used to chew and suck on the edges to help me sleep.  There is just something about them...

Thank for your comments everyone!

The Meow Wont Purr:

I did sell a lot of my crafts on eBay for a while, including earring holders, pins, barrets, earrings, and necklaces.  I didn't have enough buyers to actually come out with a profit, though, since I wanted to keep my prices low and eBay/PayPal fees are so high.  Now I just sell some of my unwanted stuff every once and a while.


That is such an interesting custom!!!  Much more exciting than the tooth fairy.

I made these Tooth Keepers for kids to keep their lost teeth in until the tooth fairy comes.  They are made of felt, with faces painted with fabric paint, and blue stitching holding them together.  The opening at the top is large enough to put a quarter from the tooth fairy into. 

I tried to sell them on eBay for $1.50 with .37 shipping, but I had no buyers.  I guess I will save them, they are so cute!

Magnets might work well to hold them closed, the thin kind you can buy in a roll at the craft store.

Very cute, I like how they actually say "cozy" on them!  Cheesy

Thats a great idea, it would certainly finish the edges better!

Yeah, when I did use the self stick stamps I just cut them out from the envelope and Mod Podged them on.  They just look a little sloppy around the edges when you do it that way.

I had a really hard time removing self stick stamps, so I actually didn't use too many on my tin.  They would always rip and separate when I tried to remove them from envelopes.  So I don't really have any tips on how to remove them.  I guess I would say just stick to the lickable stamps, as they come off of envelopes very easily.
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Freecycle on: October 02, 2004 09:58:32 PM
I am a member of the Onondaga County, NY freecycle group, and it is great!  I havn't found anything that has jumped out at me yet, but I know I will.  They have everything from old year books to dog crates!  I have a ton of stuff lying around that I don't need but I would like to give to a good home where it is needed.  I will probably devote a good part of day tomorrow to posting it all at Freecycle. 

Spydermum & conniesr:  What are the old cell phones used for?  My first guess was that if someone was signing up to a plan that required a certain brand of phone, they could get it from someone else who no longer had the plan, but still had the phone.  Is that right?  And the printer cartridges, are they for refilling?

A postage stamp toilet seat is a great idea!  I think if you coat it with enough Mod Podge and varnish it will be just fine in the moist environment of your bathroom.  I would recoat it with varnish every few years since it will be seeing lots of sitting action  Grin
