K, So I'm always hear about these awesome stores where you can jam as much as you want into a bag for like, $5. So I was wondering if anyone knew of one in Arizona. If not, what should I google to find one? Please help me, I'm desprate to find one!!! Smiley

  That sounds like a bag sale can be found in the Garage Sale section of the newspaper.  Usually churches have that on there last sale day to get everything out.  Some of these are $5.00 a bag, $2.00 a bag it varies.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Cracked terracotta pot on: April 24, 2007 08:07:26 AM
My first instinct was a fairy house using fake trees and dirt from hobby stores. Break it at the fracture for a door or window and make the rest of it her house.

This idea also reminds me, if your a nature lover making a toad abode (sp-?) and placing somewhere in the yard.  Need to make a door in the pot.

Was outside helping the parents spruce up the yard for sprinummer (yea, that's the new season here in NJ Roll Eyes) and saw this med. sized terracotta pot that they wanted to throw out b/c it was cracked.  I'd like to salvage it b/c it's just a hairline crack, otherwise it's in perfect condition (duh, right? Tongue).  If anyone has any ideas of what I could do with it, or at least what I could use to seal the crack?

Hi,  This idea would be more for the broken pot (pieces).  There is a lady here at the flea market that takes pieces of pots and paints on them the names of plants seals it with a finish , attaches a stake.  Can be used in a larger pot, garden or flower bed.  They are different sizes.

i traced the heart shape on the back and used my dremel (it's my soulmate) to carve out the heart

Now that's a cool idea, I've seen metal cut with the jewelry saw and have cut some myself (very time consuming).  What bit do you use in the Dremel for cutting?.  I have a question that has been bugging me for sometime now.  How do you bend the handle part so that it curves like that?  I've tried it and not much luck.

And I plan on moving to "The Roc" (Rochester) by August of this year...sorry, I know it ain't Buffalo Cheesy

I'm in Rochester also, what part of Rochester do you plan to move in? some areas have to be careful.

I knew fellow-craftsters would help out with great ideas. I am always overwhelmed by the braininess of you guys Smiley

Thanks (keep the good ideas coming, if anyone else has something to add)

I know this would be different, more in the art than craft.  If able to get an artist to donate a gift certificate to be raffled off for a portrait of ones pet, I know it did good with organizations that rescued specific breeds.

I think I know what you mean.  The big dies don't fit under the plate that pulls down completely, so I always cut these more than once even with paper.  I usually put them through to the edge, then pull the handle down, move them up to the middle (do it again) and move them up again. (does that make sense?  Cheesy )  With the tins I also pull the handle down more than once in each place, as I said before, it rounds off the edges of the tin nicely  Wink  I hope it works well for you.  I haven't had any problems.

Also Thank you for your kind comments Jan - hope you have fun and find a new use for the sizzix machine.  I've cut loads of different things in mine.

I want to Thank you for explaining to me (sometimes I need it knocked into me, LOL!!!!), it does make sense.  I'll be trying again later

I'm sorry, I forgot  Sad  I don't have a very good memory - You have a sizzix machine, don't you?

If you do then it should cut through the normal sheets of craft foam fine  Huh  I haven't had any problems?  Are you pulling the handle right down?  Also with tin and foam I don't just pull the handle down once but four or five times.

I hope this helps.  I'd like to see anything you make  Smiley

  I hope tonight is better, when I came on to read the post our area had a power failure, the second one yesterday and of course I was in the dark :-P . Tonight everything is running pretty good. 
  Yes, I have a Sizzix machine and I was using the large tag to make the items from.  It cuts thru very good, but I see now that I only cut once maybe twice on each end since it is large, I did push the handle down all the way.  I'll try the four or five times and see how that works :-).
  I like to show, but have no way of posting a picture, computer has problems. I don't have the scanner installed same problem to much space in the computer and the same with the camera.  The only way I can is to take regalur pics and when developed have also put on CD.
