I posted a picture in my gallery of the back of the coaster and the magnets I used. Bought mine at Michaels, I think they were near the paint. WalMart has them too, in their tiny craft dept, by the beads.

If you go to the Stampin' Up website and enter "Angel Policy" in the search bar it should answer any questions. This may take you directly there:Angel Policy - Stampin' Up!.

Maria - cute items in the blog. (and cute dogs!). I like your post on the suet project. Made me laugh.

Cathy, thanks for your comments on items in my gallery. Those always make my day.

I did post a journal in my gallery and attached ribbon to the layers of card stock for the pen. I used satin ribbon from SU! and I really liked how it turned out. I didn't find it bumpy where it laid under the paper and cardstock. I think I'll do that for the rest of my notebooks (if they ever get done).

I finished a Halloween album for a design team I am on...I was thinking about making one or two more for upcoming craft shows...does anyone have luck with the altered albums? I had so many photos of the project I made it into a short movie...it is on my blog if you want to see the finished piece...

Maria,
Love your blog. My sons would love to have your dogs too. I laughed too when I read your post about the cases. Sounds like something which happens to me. I buy bits and bobs with great intentions too.
Love the bird feed idea. I think its a great idea for the fairs. Will definitely put in on my todo list.

Congratulations on your video. The album is brilliant. and you are a PTI fan. Me too. I went to Cincinnati in July. I had a brilliant time.

I think your album is wonderful. I hope you get a good price for it.

Thanks for the sweet comments...I put a lot of thought into this book.

I should have it there by this weekend...I have been fighting a horrible migraine and I am hosting two of my daughters bday parties on Saturday...I also have one more album to finish up...a travel themed paper bag album. Both albums will be made into kits and sold at Hannah's...I just don't know when.

Very pretty. Your tag is gorgeous!

I have a ton of pine cones that I need to do something with, but not this year since I'm kind of pushed for time now. Two ideas I have are scented firestarters and pinecone wreaths.

If you decide to make these, here's a tip. Look at Goodwill or Salvation Army for a big old stew pot. I picked one up at Goodwill for $1 and save it from year to year just for this job.

I got them at Michael's. They come in a pail of 30 tins for $19.99 - but if you use one of their 40% or 50% off coupons they're REALLY cheap!

To anyone making the Snowman Hershey Bars. Fleece is on sale at Joann's for 1/2 off. If you use a 15% off your total purchase coupon it is really cheap. I bought 6" pieces, cut 12" off to make scarves, and cut the rest at 5 1/2" per piece. I bought a pattern and a solid that matched and use the pattern for scarves for the solid and vice versa. The most expensive piece was 77 cents. So for under $2.00 you have 14 to 16 hat and scarf sets. Can't beat that price. It was just as cheap as remnants, and I had the entire stock of fleece to choose from. The 15% off entire order coupon is good through Saturday. Yea!

We made fire starters in Girl Scouts one year. What a mess (but that was the girls!) But Natalie the pine cone is great, and I agree - that tag alone is amazing.

Lots of great ideas from all of you on this thread. I love reading them all. Such great ideas.

I got my fleece for the snowman candy bars, just have to hook up my printer - hopefully it will work! My fleece was free - went to my sister's house and she dug through fleece she had laying around. I like free!

PS: I also got free fleece- from my Mom. I love free, too. The stuff I bought is for next year unless I do so well I need more! One can dream.

Question Thanksgiving ideas?

Thank you for all the wonderful ideas everyone is sharing!

I've a long list of christmas items to make but I haven't come up with anything for Thanksgiving. My first fair is on Nov 6 and I think it would be nice to have some thanksgiving items. Even after a lot of thought I couldn't figure anything. I was thinking about placecards but couldn't think of something unique - which people wouldn't get in a store. Could any of you please help out with ideas?

What about a fall banners...with pumpkins or "Give Thanks". There are fall themed candies out there now...how about fall treats decorated with cute little toppers. Fall themed cards are great too. Scrapbook layouts in fall a fall theme would be fun too...something that pics can just be added to.

I did pillow boxes one year (they were winter themed), but it could easily be done with fall colors adding a "Give Thanks" tag and using it as a placecard. Make an example and add a person's name so they get what it is.
I had orginally just started selling them as treat holders, but then the light bulb went on and that's when I added the tag. They sold A LOT faster after that.

This is the picture before I added the tag.

Even after a lot of thought I couldn't figure anything. I was thinking about placecards but couldn't think of something unique - which people wouldn't get in a store. Could any of you please help out with ideas?
I fell in love with understandblue/Lydia's Hey Little Turkey and made 26 for my fair:
Hey Little Turkeys!! by Understandblue - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I like these pillow boxes by Lynn Put, too:
The Queen's Scene
If this link doesn't work, the date of the entry is 5 Nov 2008. They would make nice table favors.
HTH, Pam

I'm making some Turkey Triangle Boxes. I had a lady buy a lot of my Christmas ones and asked if I would ever make any for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Splitcoaststampers - Triangle Box Project Tutorial by Beate Johns

Thank you ladies for the wonderful ideas! If anyone has any other ideas then please have them coming too!

Lisa - banners sounds like a great idea! I'll get down to designing some!

tat2girl - I've the pillow box die so pillow boxes are totally do-able I love making them! It's so easy to do it when you've a die!

pamelak - those turkeys are so cute!!! Those would be great! Would you by any chance know if we still get the round peppermint patties? I remember reading on this thread that York no longer sells the round ones.

Jenn- You know what?!?! I'd been looking at the triangle box on my TBBM cartridge and wondering what I could do with it! You've come to my rescue

Now all I need is some fall themed paper and stamps to get started Isn't it surprising that after having so much of stuff, when you want to start a new project you always have a shopping list ready?!?!

I used Pearson Mint patties (from Walgreen). They're smaller and softer than York patties, so you need to use gentle pressure when attaching anything to them.
