i like them java...how many would each partner get?

then again, i'd love an ice cream cozy!  so cute!

If I did them up in necklace form, It would be just one... but I was thinking of doing a set of earrings OR the necklace... Or would it be better to do a set, like the soda stars, where you could do your own things with them? I would probably do 5 again, like the soda stars... they are a little harder on my die cutter...

I also forgot about the melted bead cuffs... remember those? anyone interested in those?

Ok here's a crude example of the recycled Starbucks gift card pendant; firts of all these are just on a piece of Hemp to show the possibility of being a necklace, and the cheap pony bead will be replaced with a more quality bead accent!!!

Whatcha think?

Ok everyone, I was just going through the thread checking up on things, and realized my pics are not in here... I can't even tell you what happened other than they were in my photobucket album...anyway... here's the goods; I kept some, and I gave some at Christmas and everyone was excited!!! Smiley
Oh, and you might have to turn your monitor sideways... sorry, I can't figure out how to rotate in photobucket (anyone want to explain that one to me???)

Here's Morris the monkey and the photo ornaments on the tree! I am going to embroider my son's name on the monkey!Thanks riario!

Beaded barrettes from Muria, which, I kept one and gave one each to the nieces, who both have long hair and love new adornments!

Fabric gift bag from serialcrafter! I think I might use this one as a pillow case too, it is so cute!!!

Nice and big Felt embroidered barettes (with sparkles too!)From serialcrafter LOVE!

Two of the infamous name scarves one for 'amanda' and one for 'Katie' my nieces who are the hardest to shop for and they totally LOVED them!!! Fwew!!! Thank you sewknitter

Sweet hand made buttons and jewlery cab's from MissNewEngland

Action shot (not me, my BFF) of the reusable, recycled fabric, grocery tote from madmatigan I use all the time!!! Couldn't give this one away!!!

The best smelling ornies EVER!!! OMG! thanks for the recipe too alwaysinmyroom! And don't they look cute on the tree?!?!

This set of cards from glittergirl94 also was in a stationary package to SIL! She was so thrilled about all the cards!!!

These cards from devilninny went to SIL who freaked out! She loves stationary!

Ialso received the hair wrap towel from desidou which I gave to BFF (ya, that's her up there^) she is an esthatician (you know, that technician that gives facials/skin care and waxes your brows)... SHE LOVED it! It is so great for her to whip that on her clients unwieldly hair and not get wax or mask in their doo!!! WOOT! Viva la sweat shop!!!

Ok, so I was inspired by another crocheted crown as listed in the description, but you can see I modified the idea a bit... come check it out...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135768.80 scroll down! I was going for that crown that it seems might be the Queen's 'every day wear' crown, you know the one, she's wearing it in that picture you see all the time, I think she is in a 'smart' blue suit dress.... anyway, enjoy!

I almost always make a wall hanging for people when they get married. I do their last name... you could do something like that!
Here's one I did in the Love Jesus swap...

Obviously my partner's last name was not Jesus, but it gives you an idea of what you can do! If you have graph paper and an idea you can do almost anything with Filet! Ya, it get's booring, but I like the way it looks when it's done!
