1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Advent Calendar (complete w/ photos) on: November 20, 2006 12:04:25 PM

I had a lot of fun making this funky-cool advent calendar.  Its a dollar store cookie sheet, painted, with added decorative papers.  The fun part is making the 25 magnets out of all sorts of cool stuff I had laying around. I saw instructions here:

The idea is to store the magnets on the other side and as the days go by, add a magnet each day.  I love the feel of it.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / catnip mouse on: February 21, 2004 08:10:59 AM

I made a little catnip mouse out of felt and added a heart for extra cuteness.  

All you do is fold the felt and cut out a taco shape.  Whip stitch the top and leave an opening in the back.  Stuff in stuffing and catnip.  I added a tail made of braided embroidery thread and sewed it closed.  Then all you have to do is cut out ear shapes and sew on and make little knots for the eyes.  Easy, quick and cute.  I have a big tub of catnip from the pet store for $3, I can make a ton of these critters for my friends with cats.  



p.s. make sure you sew everything securely so the cats don't eat the parts.

That looks yummy. I've been looking for a good breadstick recipe for-ever Cheesy  How do these turn out?  Are they soft inside and kind of crusty on the outside?

Wow, I'm in awe.  Where do you get "clear acrylic gloss"?  What is that exactly?  Do you have a brand that you recommend?
