Let's sign in and tell us if there is a new craft or project in your life. I usually stick with tried and true for my craft shows, but every once in awhile, I see something and HAVE to make it... It kind of works with what I sell... Have you seen the Redneck Bird Feeders?: I just finished making the signs I plan on attaching and have the plungers with stand - all I need is birdseed and topper for the baggy for the birdseed... I'll post a picture when I start to sell it this week-end. Also - I am thinking of selling it for $8. - is that price OK? Anyone else???

RE: new crafts/projects?

Ive been working in an office since January and lost my energy to do anything fun and crafty. I'm looking for something to inspire me. I am bored. I've made soap in the past. Swirly, gorgeous home-made soaps brushed with metallic powder and some that look like real gemstone from a mine. I miss making it but it's expensive and it's too hot out now to suit up with long sleeves, gloves, goggles, etc.

Here's my project- been trying to paint vases all spring, and finally figured out how to do it. My way. lol

Imagine this- hubby wanted to use this corrogated cardboard for the bottom of the chicken coop! I think it looks much better on the vases- this is what I'm trying to glue to glass, otherwise it slips off.

Here is a link that might be useful: vases

We are noticing the popular thing right now is burlap. So instead of lace on the corrugated, wrap burlap with something on it.

Mjowest- nice! Do you waterproof the cardboard somehow? If you use burlap be aware you may be allergic to it(same with twine) Your nose will itch or eyes water so give it a try but some may not buy because of that. Might be able to modge -podge burlap or something to contain the problem. I just saw in magazine,think it was Country Woman that just came where burlap curtain was edged with lace, looks more like a shade to me but cute! Jan

thanks all- and yes, the burlap makes me itch! there are vases with the burlap on them, you just to look closely- lol

I didn't waterproof the cardboard, just hope that people will use dried, silk, or use care in filling emptying-

I'm on vase overload here, though!

The vase picture didn't come through for me. Can you post it in this thread, I'd love to see it.
Grandma Bonnie, the redneck bird feeders sound like a riot! can't wait to see them.
I now have a serger and I'd love to think of something to make using it. Maybe expand on my already existing mushroom and flower themes. Right now I'm just using it to alter clothing for myself, and to make some indoor/outdoor cushion covers. Its still new and I haven't gotten a creative idea of how to use it yet. It is awesome tho.
