15471  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Healthy Eats-Along 2012 on: February 02, 2012 08:32:56 AM
I realized that I am more of a nibbler than a meal eater...I love seeing the tips on keeping the nibbles healthy and in proportion!

I have already been using a lot of the tips (smaller plate, eat slower, drink water, no sugary drinks, etc.)...the one thing that works for me is writing everything down--I hate it, but just knowing I have to write it down keeps me from snacking a lot!

Getting enough protein is tough for me...I keep forgetting about eggs!  I love them but just don't think of them...I need to craft a huge sign for my fridge "EGGS!"... Cheesy

I think this thread has motivated me to prepare more things in advance...this weekend I will vow to prepare more veggie nibbles!

What a fun and pretty way to use up those pesky and ever-growing yo-yos!!!

I love all of the embellishments you used...and the ric-rac grass!!!

I, too, will need to steal borrow this idea! Cheesy

Thanks for posting your lovely quilt!

I find it amusing that not all my friends do not have two boxes in their living room dedicated to wee house supplies...

I have one box of the tools, glues, etc. and the other with stuff to use in or on the house...

...and, uh, white wine is a valuable and much used crafting supply

ha ha The zombie exercise one is too funny!

I also love Penis Bridge! Cheesy

I have been loving the letter ones...I am definitely going to have to do more swaps in February to get my last name done! Cheesy

The colors are so soothing and lovely together!  My goodness--it is TINY!!!

How do you keep from getting cut on those little shards (like the green leaves!)...?  Do you wear gloves?  I would think it would be hard to do such tiny work with gloves, though...

Anyway, it is a lovely piece...thanks for sharing (the frame you chose fits the piece perfectly!)

ha ha that is one way to look at it...

I just wanted to report that I am so glad that I found that awesome dishwasher powder link here!!! I made it last night and can't wait for enough dishes to run a load (hubby ran a load before I got home--darn him! Cheesy)...

I cut out all the pieces of my purse but I ran out of interfacing...

Did I join two swaps?  I better check lest I miss a deadline... Cheesy

15478  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Use Your Leftovers- Scrappy Projects (not afghans!) Crochet-along on: February 01, 2012 01:38:45 PM
Thanks!  Kiss

If the yarn was too thin, I combined it with another or doubled it...I did not change hooks, but I did change the tightness of my stitches depending on the yarn...I tend to crochet and knit by "feel"?  I have done a few where the rows were getting "wavy"...I compensated by doing single or double crochet as needed to even it out...there are probably a few increases and decreases in there... Cheesy

Seriously, for the most part, since these were done lengthwise, there were so few rows (6-8)...I don't think an extra or shortages could be noticed unless you inspected the scarf carefully...a few wraps around the neck, a great attitude, and walking fast keeps a lot of mistakes from being seen! Cheesy

Your imagination is incredible!  I love the lamp socket base and using those pesky keys that we have no use for but keep anyway! Cheesy

Thanks for sharing some of your techniques...lots of effort and fun went into that tin!
