161  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Don't throw that out, I can use that!!! on: June 05, 2013 10:40:55 AM
Pockets I've collected over the years from pants cut up for other projects and a ton of teeny weeny little scraps of denim etc that I thought were still just this side of garbage.

162  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Jungle Book Sock Puppets! on: May 01, 2013 11:03:09 AM
Our local cub scouts wanted to put on a play and of course scouts is full of characters and details from The Jungle Book so what better story to choose? As the resident crazy crafter, I was asked to help design sock puppets that the cubs could assemble themselves and use in the play. We had four glue guns going and a line up of eager 8-10 year olds sticking on pre-made tails, ears, eyes, noses and bits of fur. It was such a fun night and the play was AWESOME! I was so pleased to have been invited to participate.

163  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / REALLY bizzaro music video full of crochetty weirdness. on: April 24, 2013 11:31:29 AM
This is so great, I just love it!

164  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sugru. Miracle... stuff... on: April 23, 2013 11:16:15 AM
Ever use this stuff? It's like putty but it's silicon so it dries sort of hard-ish and can be used to repair and hack all kinds of things. If you look in the gallery on their website you'll see lots of incredible projects.

Here are a few of mine. I don't work for them, I just love the stuff Smiley.

Turn and "L" fridge magnet into an "I" (I cut part off with a carpet knife then filled it in with red sugru.

Fix a ripped shower curtain ring.

Heat and slip-proof metal camping dishes, works to personalize sets too Cheesy!

Fix an uncomfortable knife grip.

Make a dollar store paper towel holder into a handy canning jar ring stash tower (these things were EVERYWHERE before I did this!).
165  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Freaky sweater monsters. on: March 28, 2013 01:55:53 PM
40 freaky monsters are set up on display at our local library in anticipation of finding wonderful new homes for themselves. They certainly can't stay at our house, I'd have to rent a bigger place for all of them LOL!

166  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weirdo felted sweater monsters. on: March 25, 2013 12:18:09 PM

167  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felted sweater creatures, picture monsterous (*snicker*!) on: March 21, 2013 02:11:00 PM
No, really, they've taken over the house. I started out with about 20 sweaters and ended up with 55 creatures. There are still over a dozen to be finished and there are some cute bunnies in another thread but here's a pretty hefty serving of adorable horrors, ha ha.


Even more!

From this fun book:

I altered this one's head a bit.
170  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Excellent toothpowder recipe, whitens with powdered orange peel! on: January 23, 2013 08:53:29 AM
Finally figured one out that works for me, not too salty or abrasive.

10ml (2tsp) Diatomaceous Earth (food grade). ~ rich in silica, gentle polisher.
5ml (1tsp) Bentonite Clay ~ gentle polisher, mineral rich, detoxifying.
10ml (2tsp) Cal/Mag powder 2:1 ratio (this is sold as a drink mix). ~ re-mineralizing.
10ml (2tsp) Baking Soda ~ gentle polisher, bacteria eliminator.
10ml (2tsp) Organic Orange/Lemon Peel Powder. ~ natural whitening agent.
5ml (1tsp) Fine Sea Salt ~ gentle polisher, natural anti-bacterial.
50ml (3Tbsp+1tsp) GMO-free Xylitol (I powdered this in a spice mill first) ~ anti-bacterial, decay prevention, plaque reducer, sweetner.
*optional - 10 drops liquid trace minerals (sprinkle in and mix, if you wish you can run everything in a spice mill to make sure the liquid combines evenly with the powder). ~ re-mineralizing.

Combine all ingredients well and store in an air tight container. Use just a pinch on a wet or dry toothbrush. (Any powdered substance should not be inhaled, take care with that.)

If you would like to flavour your tooth powder you may add a maximum of 20 drops essential oil of your preference. I used a combination of fennel, wintergreen, and cinnamon which is quite nice.

-This makes 100ml of dry powder but I've found that bathroom humidity can cause it to clump up so keep just a bit on hand and the rest in an airtight container in a cool, dark spot.
-I've read some reports that the DE and/or clay can cause tooth discolouration with prolonged use. I recommend use of this as a polisher a few times/week alternating with regular toothpaste, plain salt, plain baking power, or simply water on it's own.
