Wow! You are insanely: generous, creative, clever, crafty, dedicated, caring! I'm super impressed! I may have to up my dog-gifts for next year after seeing this. I don't have any human neices or nephews- just canine ones! They could definitely use a car care-package like this!

What a great idea and kudos to you for making 52 (holy cow!!) of them!!

What a neat idea! I may need to get a smaller iPod so I can make one of these...and then start wearing belts...

Hmmm...I bet my students would love it! And, if you could figure out a way to sneak out the headphone cord through the back, they could snake the cord up their shirts and then wear it during class and nobody would know!

Oh...wait a minute...I'm supposed to be enforcing the rules...not figuring out ways to break them... Grin

OH! Can you be MY parents?!? I always wanted a play kitchen when I was a kid, but never got one (which could be why my kitchen skills are severely lacking at this point!), and was jealous of my friends who did have one. I wish I had someone to make one of these for- I always see "Free- Take Me" signs on entertainment centers that have been plonked on the sidewalk in front of someone's house!

9935  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Friend of Craftster Color Charts on: December 29, 2006 07:15:24 PM
Okay, I can't knit, but I'm thinking beads...the stringing/weaving kind or the melt-make-a-coaster/fridge magnet kind...

Thanks for the charts!
9936  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: First time stenciller on: December 29, 2006 02:37:19 PM
Well, for a first time stenciller, I'm impressed! I have to say that the Chucks are my favorite. Hmmm...we have tons of short sleeve T's available here at the local craft chain store. When they go on sale, they are pretty cheap! I could send a few...in exchange for a printed Chucks shirt...

Let me know (and colors and sizes)- they go on sale all the time!
9937  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Charity Blitzing 2007 - Anyone Interested? on: December 29, 2006 02:20:16 PM
And NO, you do not have to commit to all the months....you do what you can.  12 months would be great but sometimes life doesn't allow us to do that.  I would be willing to put Habitat for Humanity up....can you get us some info?

Whew! I don't knit at all- my attempts have been...well...shameful...- but I crochet. However, I don't think I'm ready to tackle mittens (sorry!).

I'm going to contact our local Habitat for Humanity (central MA) and see if they are willing to accept handcrafted items as donations. I'll let you know what I find out.

Edited to add: I just fired off an e-mail, which I may follow-up with a phone call next week if I don't get a response after the holiday. Hopefully, they are willing to accept donations of the crafty kind!

Possible things that could be donated (this is just off the top of my head...I'm sure there are more!):
We've moved! change of address cards
Quilts, blankets, afghans
Kitchen items- fridge magnets, crocheted towel toppers, coasters, potholders, plant hangers, decorated pots
Embroidered sheets and pillowcases
Throw rugs of some type, floor cloths, door mats
Stuffed toys for any children
Cool lamps, art for the walls
And who knows what else...

What about Habitat for Humanity? Nothing makes a new house feel like a home than some homemade/hand-crafted items!

And, for January, where do we send the items? Directly to a shelter or to a specific person? (Edited: I just checked the site about the Snuggles- there is a local shelter I can donate to...)

I may try to start an after-school crochet club to see if we can get a couple of these made. If not in time for the January blitz, then definitely for the future! I have a bunch of crochet hooks and some acrylic yarn that the kids could use. Now...to find time in my schedule!

And, if we commit to one month, do we commit to all?

Oooh! Post pics when they're done so I can flatter you with my imitations!

What a great idea! And you picked the cutest flatworm of all- I love planaria!!  I just had an idea...I might make a two headed one...or make one in sections with velcro to show how it can be split and regenerate (science teacher geek that I am...).

Great job!
