That is freaking gorgeous. (what pretty milk cartons too!)

I'm still a bit speechless at how you turned milk cartons into a beautiful bag like that, awesome Smiley

Oooh I love this! Very nice job, the look of it is great and it apparently can take some weight!  The pictures with the kids in them are priceless Smiley

What an awesome idea!  Before I looked I was wondering how you got a huge bag that umbrellas came in, then .. doh! read it wrong hehe.  I love what you did and the design is super cute.

I love this idea! and everyone's creations... the one with the mushrooms is so so cute !  i have some of what I think is tablecloth material, it is soft one one side and vinyl on the other, going to try this with that as the interior. (it was in the scrap bin)

Blondiekate, at first, trying to think of it in my head I think I had the same mental block as you did so I did this to expand on what buffalo showed.

In my head I was actually trying to fit FOUR  10x11 pieces on there but still thinking it was two...  So I fired my head and got a new one.

wow! I just quickly skimmed through and am going to read in depth in the morning.

Just wanted to thank all of you for being packratty, disorganized, crafty tornadoes.  I have been beating myself up and feeling depressed and overwhelmed with the mountain of disheveled mess in my house and craft room...

You give me hope and I now know that I'm not alone or totally crazy.  THANK YOU Smiley

A list is soo good *looks around* but everytime I try I get so overwhelmed and stressed and that causes an episode then I just lay down shaking and being sad heh... ok thats pathetic... no more no more.   Tongue

1.  Get a big trash bag and start throwing things away.
2.  Get the Boxes, one for keep, one for maybe, and one for good will (or other)
3.  Start putting crap in them.
4.  Clean the floor, tear out the rug its nasty.
5.  Clean the walls and ceiling.
6.  Pick out and buy paint and accessories.
7.  Paint the room into happyness.
8.  Find a place and way to organize store all art supplies within view and reach. (A MUST I'm visual) this probably has sub categories hehe.
9   Create at least 3 cat spots. (they like to have designated nap areas)
10. Move my clothes to a different room, use space saver bags to store non used clothes.

pant pant pant... I bet there is more but it helped to type it out.  I"ll try to post pictures of it in the morn or early afternoon Smiley

You guys totally rock.

I have to agree with those who have said that this is so inspiring and moving.

I ran across your pictures recently on flickr of this and was in awe and mesmerized by them for a good 30 minutes or more.

What a transformation! It just turned out so beautiful, you guys did a wonderful job and all that organizing, wow.

My entire house is a dirty open canvas right now... you inspire me so much to .. use color!

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Just some hands on: September 04, 2008 10:30:56 PM
You work magic with the clay, these are amazing.

I'm a hand fanatic, draw them daily, love a challenge of weird positions... and love to exaggerate them... I'm also a bit of a hand snob.

These are awesome.

Some past cultures believed the eyes were the window to the soul... I put hands right up there with eyes, though perhaps an expression of the soul... you've crafted a beautiful soul there.

Maybe I'm cheesy but these hands really to take my breath away in their delicacy and expressiveness. (and freaking polymer clay? wowza!)
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: what to do with a bird cage? on: September 04, 2008 02:12:59 PM
I think the lamp idea sounds really neat. Somehow keeping the bird cage look?

You know... you know what I would do with it?

I'd hang it up in my craft room and put all my yarn in it, stuff it to the max with yarn.  Why?

Because I like to see my yarn and how pretty it all is, just about as much as my wonderful kitties like to EAT my yarn and kill it slowly.

Yes, that is what I'd do with it, I'd cage yarn.

I did see a pretty shot in a magazine of a lady who had an antique birdcage hanging from a pretty stand and it was full of candles.

My second option would be a plant. (again, protection from the feline variety)  Probably an orchid or something... but maybe a climbing variety with smaller leaves vs. larger ones.

If you were into stained glass perhaps you could do some renovating and refit some parts with beautiful stained glass and hang it where light shines (or put some led lights inside)

Ok, now I would like bird cages! you fuel my thrift store addiction Smiley

Depending on how much room you have horizontally to hang something you could:

Hang it on the wall near your desk to put stationary / blank cards for writing on it.  This way its a visual reminder to write and send that letter or thank you.

Same as above but hang ribbon or fabric scraps from it.

You could affix it to the ceiling, either a little off of it or hanging and use it to hang small things to dry.  (assuming you do some sort of craft where you would need that, I do hehe)

Somehow make it so it will stand vertical in the garden or a pot (maybe with wire or sticks) and use it to have a plant climb on.

If you go car camping (not hiking in) you could bring it to set over the fire pit to set your pot on when camp cooking. (not really crafty but a use none the less)

The sister torturer idea holds a lot of merit too! I'm not really sure how that works but I am intrigued.  Usually I would just torture my sister by leaving waters spots on her table.

If you wanted to get a little out of the box, could you weave something into it?  I'm not really sure what or how it would look, its just some random thing that popped into my head... what about weaving all kinds of bits and pieces for birds nesting in it and then somehow affixing it outside... or affixing a bird feeder to the center and hanging it.. then the birds could sit on the crossbars.

I'll stop now... Smiley

*edit* I lied! you could use it as your paint buddy and put stuff on you were painting and have newspaper or something below to drop on.
