1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Empty pill bottles?? on: January 13, 2009 08:27:25 AM
I peel/soak in hot water so the label comes off and then decorate the outside, and make 'get better' kits for friends that aren't feeling well (I have a friend who is addicted to House, so I put these white cough drops in them and lent her one of my House DVD Seasons). 

Christmas time last year I decoupaged one with bible verses and filled it with red/green M&Ms and gave it to a friend (who also happens to be my pharmacist)...she and I were joking that if she got in trouble at work she could prove they were M&Ms and not drugs.

You can make a 'PMS' bottle, and decorate the outside with sayings, etc, and then fill the inside with a combo of motrin/advil/little chocolate candies.

There is one size from my pharmacy that when full of quarters, is the perfect size for wrapping in the bank paper, so I do that when I have/am saving up quarters.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / cloth hanging (sweater) shelf on: January 13, 2009 08:19:08 AM
I had one of those space-saving sweater/jeans/clothes/whatever cloth 'shelves' that velcro around the top of the closet and has about 6 spaces for you to store....clothes, etc.  I've had it for about 4 years, and lo and behold, the other day it finally gave out and snapped.  All of the cloth pieces are still attached, which makes me think I could still use it for storage (somehow?) but it won't re-attach to the closet for hanging anything.
Is there anything I could store in there, and most importantly...where would I put it?  It doesn't stand up on it's own, just kind of ....crumbles there.  I'd HATE to throw it away.  Help!?

Thanks.  Smiley
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 'Dr. Who.' question on: January 02, 2009 08:00:37 PM
I know there have been a few 'Dr. Who.' type scarves floating around lately.  My question is....has anyone (who hasn't done the 'traditional' one, obviously) repeated a color, or have they used all different shades?  I'm debating if I should use different shades or if it would be 'ok' to repeat with the same yarn that I used, say, 2" back in the scarf. 

I don't quite think I own all of (enter cheap non dye lot yarn name here) colors yet, but I'm getting close.  If only I had a bigger storage unit than under my bed. Le sigh.

chloecat- PMed you.

Sorry I've been MIA from this thread for a bit.  Had a medical emergency which landed me in the hospital (didn't want to bring my crafts in with me, even if I had the energy to do them) and then the day after I got d/c'd there was a death in my family so I had to fly up to NY (my 'home' even though I'm down south for now).  I got back in yesterday evening and have been finishing up the crafts.

Erica, how are you?  Hope everything is ok.

Looking forward to some kitty picture goodies soon!

Gallery!!! Gallery!!!!

I wish I had days on end where all I could do was just craft.  There's this thing called life that gets in the way sometimes.

Can anyone provide more details for the craftically-challenged?

I'm trying to figure out how after you cut them with a sharp knife (where you would cut them?) they would open/close.

There's a lot of stuff going around here too.  I've just gotten over bronchitis, now have it again, and now also have a stomach bug.  The good news is in btwn sleeping, I can get some crafting done, b/c I have a work note for a couple days.  Wink

Working on my med item, wanting to make a large as well.  Have loads of ideas for small ones so I need to make a list and narrow it down.

Happy Crafting!

They came back and got EVERYTHING.  I mean, I know it was theirs....but the other 2 bartenders had 'dibs' on the wings and desserts in the walk-in, and I wanted some of those glasses for crafts! 
Went back when we opened the next morning to set aside the food for the other 2, and put the glasses in my car, and the manager (not the one that worked that night) said they came and cleared it out.
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 10 monogrammed beer glasses on: September 20, 2008 10:53:34 PM
Long story short, I worked a party where the people brought monogrammed beer glasses (the glass wasn't etched in, it was like, glass in another glass)

They did almost $1200 and left us no tips.  So the owner offered the 3 of us that worked the extra beer glasses and food.  I'm going to go back and grab a bunch of the beer glasses before they can come back and get the extras (they have at least 60 extras)

Any crafts I can do with them?  Some of the other (legal) ideas we had were spitting in them and throwing them against trees (and then cleaning it up, of course).

The names won't scratch off, but I'd hate to see these glasses go to waste....and none of us are going to ever drink out of them, not after a night like we had.
