What great ideas!

This year I'm going to alter wooden pant/skirt hangers (the ones with clips) and give them to my young nieces and nephews. It will be a way for them to display their art work without using so much tape on their walls! I just need to figure out how I'm going to do it....

I will also make crafting kits.

I have trouble with gifts for my BiLs; any ideas?

Default On line Check off Lists

Somewhere in this thread people were asking about how to do a check off list online.

I recently found this website:
TaDa List

It is free. I just signed up, you give a title for a list and enter the items. when you enter a check mark in the box next to an item it moves the item to the bottom with the box checked.

I made one for a wish list for Christmas and was able to put in links to online stores. When someone wanted a wish list I just gave them the address to mine on TaDa List. You can make the list either private or public.

I added the page to my favorites under links, then in the Explorer header I have the Links menu bar showing so my list is right there to check easily.

I plan on adding more lists for to do and to do for Christmas 2009.

I joined the Christmas challenge on SCS to do 10 cards a month. Then when November comes you are ready. I like that idea because it is not so overwhelming. Also leaves me time to make other projects Oct-Dec.

I just sent out some more instructions on the crafts I made and gave for Christmas and for the Martha Stewart Towel Tote.

I have made 10 Christmas cards so far and made my tentitive list for Christmas 2009.....hint, Denise's Lotion is involved!

REally liked your SWEET card....simple and quick no doubt. I am going to a shoebox swap this weekend and may use some form of it.

The sketch challenge sounds great! Keep that motivation going!!

Hmmm....I will have to make one of those challenges today. I am downstairs working on Birthday, Anniversary and Thank you cards today.

One of the things that I do is when I make one card and make a second identical one. It is always easier for me to mass produce...the florist coming out in me!@*!

Hey everyone! Been busy with my mom and so sorry I abandoned you all! Cindy..watcha doing over the next couple of days? Let me know your availablility and I will be there. I have to switch to my husband's computer because I have Vista and for some reason it does not like Yahoo Messenger at all and I finally had to delete it, I tried it on our laptop and again, Vista, and more problems. Well, my husband's is not Vista (thank goodness) and I am taking it over when we need to chat. He has been warned and is taking heed...LOL.

Also, just wanted to give a nudge to all those embroidery/needlework folks. Chichiboulie has a new pattern on her website. boulieblog.com My stitched sample (yes, I did that work on her blog...woo hoo) of one of her Valentines Day (hearts...not Valentines day actually but in time for it) images is now up and another one will be coming soon. Just wanted to share because I just love her work. She designs stamps for stamping bella as well as freelance work. She really is phenom. I just think it is the coolest thing to be able to embroider a gift, wrap it up and then make a matching card with the stamp....way cool in my book. Well, enjoy...she has 2 other free patterns as well on her site and then there are some in her shop for purchase. Good luck and happy stitching!

That towel tote is the bomb...you will love it and it is sooooo simple. I love it and that magic pillow...can't wait to start on those in mid February.

I am using that TaDa List...pretty cool but I still like to have it down in my journal/art book. Not sure if that is saving me time or not..HaHA.

I am not sure if I am understanding the challenge thing for sfytt. I did go to the iheart2stamp.com but still did not get it. I know, most days I pay way too much to be blonde.

BTW Mamma is mamma....you gallery is fantastic. Man, has it grown! Awesome job and you do such great work.

i too will be making a magic pillow and will attempt the tote.

i have a planner in the works for myself, i NEED it! and i am already seeing that my christmas cards are gonna have so much more WOW! since i don't have to hurry. and i will have lots of different ones too! woot woot!

about the challenge... i am not too tech savvy so i had to go back and clicky clicky clicky to get to the actual picture of the sketch. here is the link! i have already made 5 or 6 cards using it. i just love how different the cards can look even using the same sketch. just change up the colors and images and BAM!

thank you for visiting my gallery! i am glad that you liked what you saw!

Crystal,

I am glad that you are okay.....but, I did wonder?? I have nothing going on for the next couple of days/evenings. PTO meeting this afternoon and Dr. appt tomorrow afternoon is all. LMK what works for you. If you want to chat, as in really, I have a couple of methods instead of IM'ing.

That blog sounds neat, will have to investigate further.

There are so many great ideas on here, I'm going to keeping an eye on here. I am doing the 2009 Christmas card challenge, I don't need as many as a lot of folks , but I thought it would help to stay a head, and I have started calendars (2010) for 9 members of mine and dh family, I have the month templates printed the card stock ready to bind and recipes for each month printed and about half of them already decorated with embellishments, and lots of punched holiday items for each holiday, and now in process of gathering pictures of family members to copy and add to each month, that will be the hardest thing, because I will need differnt pics for each family.
But I am so excited to be this far along on them. Sorry for rambling in my first post. Keep the ideas coming.

This sounds like a great project! Can you tell us where you got the idea and do you have any pics to share yet?

I agree finding photos of family without them knowing is tough!

Well the idea came from here SCS somewhat and from a Goosebery Patch calendar that I had for 09, it had a recipe for each month and some cute idea for a craft, and come cute quote etc. So I just kind of using that and the paper crafting and combining them, and no , no pics yet, when I get a little farther along and they start taking shape I will start adding them to my gallery. And the family pics I just thought would make them more personal. For example my dh dad passed away last August, so I am going to put a pic of his Mom and Dad on his families calendars. They will all love it, because his pic will be there, another hard thing will be deciding which month gets which pic, it will be a long process. But I already have all the pics I need, we take pics at very get together, I won't have to be asking any of them for pics, which is good. Some not to reliable, hehe, but I love them all.

I promise it gets easier. I don't even think about having one most days now. It took a while, but it is so nice to get up in the morning and be able to breathe

I make 14 ornaments for kids, grands and greats. I have knitted, crocheted, painted, crosstitched, bla bla for years. This year I am picking up an old hobby: quilling. Going to make ornaments of snowflakes, poinsettias, trees and whatever I can find or think of. Plan on starting this weekend. Also going to make Christmas cards and gift tags with quilling too. I may even make a few gifts of pictures or picture frames...hmmmm. I can incorporate my stamping in all of this. I'm excited to get started. I'll be watching this thread closely, got a bajillion ideas last year. What a creative bunch. Thanks all!

I have always thought that it looked neat but, never tried it. Your ideas sound great and I am sure that the gifts will be appreciated.

I was doing some cleaning out today of old stamping, scrapbooking and crafting magazines.....don't get excited I am not getting rid of them just yet. Pulling out ideas to save.

Anyway, I saw this coaster that uses 2 round pieces of canvas with stamped sentiment and snowflakes/trees and filled with spice potpourri. Looked like a neat idea to use up some fabric. Has anyone ever done something like this? My only concern would be that the Potpourri would be too lumpy and create an uneven surface to set a full cup of hot drink.

I think this would be great added to a pamper basket. Ideas?

i think the potpourri thing would make a better 'hot pad' than a coaster...

just my thought!

Thanks Michelle, a scented hot pad sounds like a neat idea! And, if I was really smart, I would use up the odd quilt blocks (I won at quilt guild many years ago)that are just sitting in containers downstairs for them.

I haven't gone through and read all of the posts, but I told my husband a few weeks ago that from now on, those that I am buying something for I am going to do one family each month and get all of them out of the way (he is the youngest of , so it will make it easier on the pocket book.

I'm also looking for ideas for what to make as gifts this year...

I took some random quilt blocks a couple years back and made lap quilts and dog quilts. Used nine blocks for each. My aunt loved getting a quilt for her puppy.

I want to get some thoughts on something. I got two face mask recipes off martha stewart. I am trying to figure out if either of these could be mixed up and put into an altered jar for a gift. One has oatmeal which I worry would get too soft with time, but seems to be the best option. The other has cucumber which I am more concerned could go bad. What do you think...

Oatmeal and raw honey mask
Ideal for dry skin, the oatmeal and raw honey mask helps soften skin, moisturizing the upper layers, and leaving it vibrant and radiant. To make, simply combine 1 cup oatmeal and 1 cup filtered warm water in a bowl and allow the oatmeal to absorb the water. Add 1/2 cup raw organic honey and mix well. Apply mixture to a clean face and neck and leave on for 30 minutes before rinsing with cool water.

Aloe and cucumber mask
This hydrating mask helps soothe irritated skin. To make, simply combine 1 large chopped aloe plant leaf (or 1 cup aloe juice) and 1 cup chopped cucumber in a blender. Apply to clean face and leave on 30 minutes before rinsing with cool water.
