1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 10 (green by 11/24, send by 11/27) on: November 07, 2019 06:54:04 AM
Oh crud - I haven't been on Craftster for a few days and thought the sign ups were closed by this weekend - so I missed it Sad

Oh well, maybe I will just keep what I made for myself and make some extras for next year.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Tape Measure Holder on: October 22, 2019 09:19:42 AM
Do you mean the clip in the back that holds the entire pouch to a belt/waistband, or do you mean the bent piece of metal in the front to clip the measure to?

If it is the former - you could repurpose a belt clip from somewhere else, or make your own by making a belt loop or something.  If it is the latter, you could make a leather or heavy duty canvas version that could clip a tape measure to - but it would wear out.  Or, if you can metalwork (or know someone who can) then take some thicker gauge metal, cut it, do the two bends, punch two holes in the ends, smooth the edges with some filing/sanding, and rivet the pieces on the front of your pouch.

You can try small drill bit - I think that the plastic may break with an electric drill - I wonder if a hand/pocket drill may give more control and support the base with some tape or something.  You may want to practice on some tester pieces first.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: craft superstitions on: October 18, 2019 05:55:18 AM
Not so much a superstition as a habit I guess - but when prepping my beading thread, using wax or Thread Heaven, I find I always have to draw the thread through 3 or 5 times - usually 5.  Once is never enough; nor is twice.

The number 4 is a cultural superstition though - even though I am not a believer of it, but it is so ingrained from my mother and grandmother that I will not draw through 4 times, give 4 kisses, wash wounds 4 times,  etc.  The number 4 in Chinese is similar to the word for death.  But I actually don't believe anything negative will happen if the 4 is associated with it.

Also there is something about dropping scissors - not just because it's crappy on the scissors.

Fabulous!  I love the dispenser.  One of my wish list items for DH to make me at some point is a glue gun station - but I wanted the upright holder for the sticks as use different sized glue guns depending on the project I am working on.

I love your gorgeous dark stain.

Space (and neatness), as always, is an issue though.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: OMG - I need a drink swap... anyone interested in Happy Hour? on: October 18, 2019 05:43:00 AM
Oh dang - I just realized - I was the originator of this post and maybe this swap way back when.... I am not mentally up to hosting a round - anyone else up for it???

One thing that I (and other Ontarians) have access to is a fabulous free magazine that promotes the local liquor board - it has wonderful seasonal recipes that uses booze and local goods - I would love to see if there are other areas that do something similar.  Whenever there has been a boozy swap, I try to include this.

Lovely!  I have some sari silk yarns I bought a number of years ago and gorgeous rainbow ribbon yarns - this is great inspiration for something to do with them!
