Mostly crafty finds

Posted on: January 20, 2009

  • A free pattern for a lovely snowflake from Michael's.

  • If you're strange like me, maybe you've wondered who came up with the traditional heart pattern. It looks nothing like the real human heart. So, why not send out anatomically correct heart cards for this Valentine's Day. There is a template here and you can personalize your cards to your anatomically heart's content.

  • There are several pattern here for anyone interested in knitting a Dr. Who scarf. I'll admit that I've never been a big fan of the show, but the scarf…oh yeah!
  • I love these Dollar Store crafts, partly because they're cheap, but mostly because there are some creative people out there making stuff out of what you can find. Although I've seen ideas for making a clock out of a CD before, this is the funkiest one I've run across. So I had to share. And I might have to make one of these up for myself. I wouldn't even have to go to the dollar store since I've got one of those AOL CD's around somewhere, plenty of scrapbook paper, and other stuff. Only thing I need is the clock kit.

  • This is a cute pattern from KnitPicks. I've found their patterns to be good and easy to follow. I might have to try this one soon since it appears that winter has dug in for awhile. And I love snowmen, so it will be a pleasant and fun thing to knit.
  • I never knew there were so many different types of flavored salts until I really started cooking. Here are five salts with suggestions on what types of food to use them with. Now, where I can find these?

Thanks for mentioning the clock! You can get a clock at the thrift store and use the inner workings for your clock, too.

Ha ha, that sounded kind of incoherent.

Thanks Heather! That’s a great idea and probably much cheaper. I might have to hit the local Goodwill shop this weekend to see if they have any old clocks. I really like this project and think it would also be a great idea for more personalized gifts. And I love the Dollar Store crafts blog in general.
