Absolutely. Do it while you can, and cheers to those who can.

Ohmygosh I'm assuming Halloween is a very different thing in the US - here in the UK we just dress up as witches and monsters Cheesy

Yes, somehow in the course of my lifetime, Halloween in the U.S. turned into this strange spectacle of post-pubescent girls of all ages dressing up as "Sexy _____".  Insert absolutely anything in the blank.
As for most of the guys on U.S. Halloween, they just sit back and enjoy the, um, scenery on display.
I really don't like Halloween since the one when I encountered a masked attacker in a stairwell. But that's just me.
(It is a well-done costume, don't get me wrong. I'm commenting on purpleone's comment, not the original post. Hope you had fun.)

Mayyybe in December. One more month to let it freshen up. If there's interest.

I'm as interested as ever; I recommend waiting til January, though, since then everyone will be totally finished with their holiday projects, vacations and obligations, and hopefully have some gifts they want to get rid of!
3294  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: homely, old-fashioned dress from bedsheet on: November 01, 2007 11:03:07 PM
Thank you for all your insight, Wifeofbath! I appreciate it. My grandmother used to talk about her family's clothing from cloth flour sacks fondly, as well. Even with their crafty ingenuity, I just can't imagine how most people in the "olden days" had time to sew clothing...Granted, most people didn't own a variety of clothing, and clothes were made to last, and they took care of what they did have (as I understand it). In many ways I look forward to when those attitudes become prevalent again, but I know it won't become the norm until there's some kind of mindblowingly huge catastrophy that forces the change.  Embarrassed

And has there been a swap for cloth pads? Cause if there hasn't, there totally should be.

I keep asking for some in every swap I've done, bus alas, I have not yet received any. (Not to put down the many other fabulous things I've received!) Of course if I did have a bunch of them, I would probably get lazy and not launder quickly, which would be bad.

Don't feel bad, my calendar pages keep getting bumped further down my to-do list. There's plenty of time. I definitely finished one page, but I'd rather send them all out at the same time to avoid getting confused over what I have and haven't finished.

I'm bouncing back and forth between different swap projects, but now this one is the big priority since its due the soonest, and I just finished my last project for the Ongoing Wish Swap sometime after midnight. (yay!) One of the items for my swap partner is an absolute experiment so I have to get it going quickly to see if it will be sendable, and if not then its back to the cross-stitch...
3298  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish List Swap 27 on: October 30, 2007 10:18:05 PM
I claim maremare312 for a bracelet, a cross-stitch kit, and a Zelda-themed goodie vintage crochet magazine.

This is my 5th and DEFINITELY final claim for the month, with 2 sent, 2 received.

Introducing myself: Nevermind, I introduced myself on the previous page.

I like reusing and recycling, and anything in this list can be pre-used (except the padsyech). I am vegetarian, left-handed, leftist, non-pierced, am sensitive to smoke, and would prefer no fur or animal skin. Theres other info on my preferences and dislikes in my profile, too, and stuff that signifies my taste in general on my wist: www.wists.com/happyhermitheather

My list:

Crafted:
- Reusable cloth menstrual pads
- Reusable cloth grocery bag Thank you Z-Mama!
- Other cloth/reusable items to take the place of disposable stuff
- Hand-held spindle or other small, portable device for spinning (doesnt have to be homemade, its just much more affordable that way). With or without DIY kit/roving I am an absolute novice
- Hippyish recon clothing, medium size
- Sandals made from tire tread, Im womens U.S. size 7.5-8
- A snood
- Wallet small enough to fit in back pocket of pants Thanks maremare!   
- Wraparound pants like these: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0

- Rug/floor-mat made from used plastic bags or other recycled stuff
- Swap journal
- Surprise inspired by '80s cartoons!


Supplies:
- I dont know what theyre called, but the little devices that can record short sound-bites to be replayed when a greeting card is opened. Know what Im talking about? Either greeting cards that have those devices, or the devices by themselves.
- A screened frame for papermaking
- Opalescent or other shiny metallic ink or paint
- Set of Gelly Roll pens, including at least a few metallic-inked and other fancy ones Thanks !B!
- A wholatta reusable paper (blank on at least one side) for making recon journals - ANY size from 4x6" on up!
- Any size scrapbook paper (ok, it doesn't have to be for scrapbooks specifically, but that type of paper) from or similar to these designs:
www.wists.com/happyhermitheather/prints
Thanks !B!
- Strong adhesive that isn't too fumey or toxic
- PVA glue
- matte medium or Mod Podge
- dried, pressed plants
BIGGEST WISH/NEED: - Any flat images/stickers/ephemera of faeries - I need LOTS of these for a current swap project (shhh) !!!!!
- cool molds for candles or polymer clay
- candle wicks
- Any kind of fabric with dog-related design, any colors
- Dog-related charms or pendants
- X-Acto knife or set of similar cutting tools

Misc:
- Tapestry/fabric of Indian, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or SE Asian design old saris, for instance. Used or torn is fine.
- Books about Tasha Tudor (not the actual childrens books shes written, but books about her and her lifestyle itself)
- Vintage Fisher-Price Little People people, animals or playground equipment
- Any pieces for 1960s Mystery Date or Mary Poppins boardgames
- Non-Disney DVDs about animals i.e. March of the Penguins, Milo and Otis, PBS, Charlottes Web, Animal Planet, BBC. Can be for any age group or audience, prefer live-action or claymation ("Chicken Run"!!!) over cartoons.
- No-grain treats for my doggie-girl (she has grain allergies but that doesn't affect her appetite!)
- Books about book-making, creative writing, journaling or journal-making, scrap-papercraft, altered imagery, artists books/journals, and/or the therapeutic use of any of these
- Books about becoming less of a consumer and more of a DIY-er, affordably
- Books about things we can make, do, or change that are therapeutic to the soul and spirit... In short, any book that SARK would recommend  Grin


Thanks for looking!   Let me know if you have any questions!

3299  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 27 Gallery on: October 30, 2007 12:11:22 PM
My package arrived from maremare312! She made me the greatest wallet from the cover of "The Scarlet Letter":

and now a photo to show size:
The edges are sewn and it closes with velcro. It's a wallet-sized wallet, which is what I have needed for ages, but gift-givers in my life could never understand! So I'm quite happy.
And she also sent me a Heloise book, so hopefully that will help me be a better housewife to myself!  Grin

Such good stuff! Thank you!

I claim vala_amaris for embossing powder and wool sweaters and surprises inspired by her stalking page (Sorry, I had a last-minute change of heart regarding my embossing powder).

This is my 4th claim for the month, with 2 sent, 2 received.

Introducing myself: I am Heather, in California. It's been a very strange and transitional year for my dog and me, and right now we are jobless, borderline-disabled staying with family and trying to figure out what The Next Step is for life.  It equates to lots and lots of crafting time with a tiny crafting budget.

I like reusing and recycling, and anything in this list can be pre-used (except the padsyech). I am vegetarian, left-handed, leftist, non-pierced, am sensitive to smoke, and would prefer no fur or animal skin. Theres other info on my preferences and dislikes in my profile, too, and stuff that signifies my taste in general on my wist: www.wists.com/happyhermitheather

My list:

Crafted:
- Reusable cloth menstrual pads (making these with reclaimed fabric is okay, giving me reusable pads that have already been used is not. Thats probably self-explanatory, but I just want to cover my bases.)
- Reusable cloth grocery bag Thank you Z-Mama!
- Other cloth/reusable items to take the place of disposable stuff
- Hand-held spindle or other small, portable device for spinning (doesnt have to be homemade, its just much more affordable that way). With or without DIY kit/roving I am an absolute novice
- Hippyish recon clothing, medium size

- No-grain treats for my doggie-girl (she has grain allergies but that doesn't affect her appetite!)
