1  UNITED STATES / Utah / Salt Lake Crafsters! on: April 09, 2008 08:11:44 PM
So I've been reading through the posts in this section a lot of them are old.  I live in Salt Lake City, and I know lot's of cool no craftster, crafters, and it could be cool to meet more people.  Who here lives in the area, or is around sometimes?

My tattoos aren't much to look at but conceptually cool.  I got fake moles tattooed into constellations.  Three of them have real  moles incorporated.  I have five total, Grus the crane, Musca the fly, Volans the flying fish, Cetus the sea monster, and Orion.  I will try to take pics to post.

I had a really hard time finding the scrubbing soda.  I was able to find the borax at target, and I saw it at a number of grocery stores.  The scrubbing soda was difficult.  You can call you local grocery store and request that they carry something.  I had a friend call a store about some mustard every day for a week, and they started to carry it.  When you request a product, they assume there are something like 16 other people who want it but didn't mention that.

Thanks so much everyone, I love this site!

By the way, I'm making one of those wonderful crocheted bags right now!

Here are my pictures from my May projects:

My cleaning cupboard after making my own eco friendly cleaner:

Small tip on making the natural all purpose cleaner.  The recipe I used was water, vinegar, and baking soda.  Well I filled the bottle almost full with water, then added my vinegar, and then added my baking soda.  After the explosion, my bottle was empty.  I forgot all about that vinegar baking soda reaction...but it all worked out in the end.

A cute idea is filling them with salt and pepper, and capping them.  Punch little holes in the cap, and instant salt and pepper shakers.  I give these as wedding gifts.

Also another thing to think about is eco friendly gardening.

I recommend a book called Weedless Gardening by Reich, which teaches methods for gardening with minimal disruption to the natural layers of soil.  Also a catalog called 'Gardens Alive' where you can order green lacewings and praying mantis to protect your veggies.

My own odd tip?  Bulk buy chili powder and sprinkle a heavy boarder around your plants to descourage wild snackers.  Also works well under cars to keep unwanted tenants from making an apartment of your engine block....

My current eco-project is using old newpapers as a weed barrier! (See book listed above.) So far it is working wonderfully well. 4 layers of paper with compost on top --weed roots from below starve due to darkness, but the seedlings I plant on the paper can put down roots just fine! No weed killers needed!  Smiley

THANKS!  This is my first year with my garden and I've already made so many mistakes, I'm so glad to hear about good sources of information!
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make something out of a used book on: May 23, 2007 12:11:29 AM
I saw a used book swap that was intriguing, but I was thinking a swap where you make something out of the book itself would be really interesting.  Anyone else interested?

I'm new, of course.  I LOVE crafting, especially recycle themed crafting.  I love learning new uses for things in everyday life.  I've loved craftster since the day I first checked in.  I would love to arrange maybe a swap or crafting party with anyone in the Utah County area of Utah.

I make these compulsively!
About the HOLE!  After the bowl cools I put a small amount of tape on the bottom of the bowl covering the whole.  Then I pour in and epoxy resin, the kind I buy is at Michaels, and Roberts.  It's EnviroTex Lite, Pour-On.  This will also protect the label so it is waterproof.  As a result it is my boyfriends favorite cereal bowl.
