  1. just wanted to share this bit of fun. I made this card for a friend and I think it will get a lough or two. I love making cards with pocket bits so I had to add "lunch". also the 'end' wiggles :rofl I have decided I hate paste - the card looks better in RL but the camera shows every flaw in the gluing.
  2. The bill holder -to my mind- has limited usage but it can work nicely for bits you want to keep together around an issue or such. All the paperclip bookmarks I made and left down stairs were gone in nothing flat. we have an area in the laundry room where we can share books and I leave the bookmarks there. I really like that style but I use my Kindle for reading as I cannot hold books (open) in my arthritic hands, today I made a dozen more bookmarks and I will drop them off sometime soon - I'm guessing they would make nice bits for Christmas gifts if you are giving books.
  3. I decided to practise making some bookmarks with a hidden paperclip inside - still like the idea but my execution needs work :rofl so I did a couple of 'the usual suspects'.
  4. Just wanted to share these Christmas gifts I made for 2 friends - I made on for me as well- to keep gratitude in our hearts and minds in 2021. they are gratitude journals - I made them to suit the personality of each. if nothinig else we can be grateful that it is not 2020.
  5. those are so wonderful. May God bless you and keep you in your giving.
  6. I was alking to a friend about this soap sack - she had to ask what it was at one point I said, "If, when I was 7 years old you had told me that when I was 70 years old I would not own a single bar of soap,,, I would have thought you were crazy but here we are
  7. with the talk of knitted soap sacks I got to remembering this pattern I devised ages ago then I had a KAL Yahoo group. I could not find my pattern so I just redid the thing. it is quite interesting if I do say do myself. the PDF is here:K-Chevron Soap Sack.pdf
  8. This is my Bob Ross moment... I'm giving my gnirly gnome a happy little friend. I love making these gnomes and everyone seems to love them - sort of a throw back to "Precious Moments" but with noses instead.
  9. we can put stuff we don't want in an area of the laundry room and people can come and take anything they see and like. I send a lot of stuff down there and have gotten some great stuff there myself. It is my favourite way to "reduce, reuse, recycle".
  10. I agree that would be a good idea but I think the little notebook would have to go. .. it might work
  11. need an opinion on this deskmate. I have been watching vids on some paper-crafting Ideas and I designed this based on those ideas. I love this but I don't have any place to use it (it is a 2021 calendar - yes I got that without seeing the trailer first) so... would you use something like this. It is going down to our laundry room where we can share free stuff and I imagine someone will use it, Love doing this stuff but not sure of the usefulness. it has a notebook, a pen, a tissue holder, the calendar and post-it flag notes.
  12. got a couple of things today. I got this Newberry doll for $17.00 cdn. it will go in the donation box but I will get rid of the package as it adds to the weight. and I thought someone somewhere would love a gnirly gnome. She is so sweet and the braids do take the place of the beards.
  13. I totally love this hat and your way to fix the pooling is just great
  14. some friends and I were laughing about this poster from Pinterest https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/280349145543251603/ so I decided to make a pretty planner for next year as an act of faith-> we don't dare ask if it can be any worse than 2020. this is a donation to someone
  15. I just wanted to share this... I got a new (blood sugar) test kit today and the case that came with it is just about useless so I made myself a pretty new one. Now I can even store my little tissue bits with my other supplies and of course every girl needs some bling case that came with: my new pretty one.
