181  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: organizing your paper? on: October 11, 2006 07:45:24 PM
I too was searching for a way to organize my paper.  I didn't want to spend a fortune, but wanted something practical and useful.  I came across this idea (see site for an example of finished product being sold on e-bay below), but I made my own.  Walmart, Target , etc. have the cube kits.  Use some small plastic ties (found in the hardware section) to connect them.  I got 2 kits for $6 each at Walmart and made 2 cubes with many shelves.  I think they have been running from 7-13 dollars lately, but still a good bargain. I love them.  You can custom build them to fit what you need and rebuild them if your needs change.   Cool

If you check out thrift stores (Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.) you may be able to get a real bargain.  Ask too, because they often get plastic fruit that is a bit "used" looking and may give it to you for very little.  The not so nice parts will be covered anyway. Perhaps you can dip it in caramel brown colored paint partially and let some of the apple show.  How about some nuts added before the paint dries?

No pattern, but my mother crocheted several seat covers for pickup bench seats years ago.  They were similar to an Afghan, but fitted like a fitted sheet.  They lasted for a long time and were quite unique.  She was good at making her own patterns.  Hopefully this will inspire some crocheters or knitters Smiley

 Shocked Thanks for the tip on the bottle caps!  You probably saved me a real hassle! 

I was thinking of using them to do a bar top.  I'm glad I read this before they went...pop!!!

I'm a poet...heeheehee Cheesy

Any other suggestions about using these to do a bar top? Has anyone ever used epoxy instead of grot?

The one that I really wanted was a bracelet. There were various sizes/shapes of green/coral unakite beads and various spacers.  It used a leather type cording to string them.  It wrapped several times around the wrist.

Thanks for looking.  If  you do have one, let me know.  I will send postage. 

And they say crafty people are messy; seems like we throw away too much at times  Grin

I did try the web site. It's not there.  I also emailed them, but they say they can't send old catalogs.  It wasn't that old.  I just got it in the Spring.  Thanks for trying to help though.

I have been searching for craft forums to ask for help and came across yours.  I hope I've come to the right place.  I saw a pattern in the Oriental Trading Co.'s Bead catalog and was inspired by it. I ordered the assorted beads to make a project using the pattern, but somehow got a little over eager with housecleaning/recycling and accidentally got rid of the catalog.  I thought they would send a new one with the order as they usually do.  No such luck.  I waited a while, no bead catalog.  Then, I got one, got excited, and quickly disapointed when the project of my inspiration wasn't in the new catalog (the one with a candle and wine glass on the front).  Asked many crafty friends; they must have gotten rid of it as well.  I even contacted the co. They will/can not send out old catalogs.  Bummer!  I have all of these beads, etc. and cannot for the life of me remember the patterns I saw.  If anyone has an older (not the candle/wine glass on front one) catalog, can you send it to me? I will pay postage if you have one.  Thanks for listening to my problems.  Oh, by the way, love this site.  I will probably stick around to see what you all are up to!  Thanks!!!
