For the MOTHER AND DAUGHTER activity of Rosevale School here in Cagayan de Oro City, GOODIE BOX CRAFTS conducted an ALTERED BOOK: JOURNAL MAKING activity and just added more spice to the afternoon's theme of simply enjoying each other's company while expressing their love and care for each other. The activity helped these teenagers as well as moms to express themselves through art and loved the idea of altering hardbound books to become journals. So many lessons to learn especially with Mrs. Thelma Mend... read more »

Today started with a bang! I emptied the big kiln of 14 various and sundry bottles that someone paid me to slump, just to fill it back up with more of the same. Then, just one more load tomorrow of the little buggers. It's not the most artistic endeavor I've got going, but it does pay the electric bill.
'Tis the season for bottle slumping, and the festive jingle of glass cheese boards! This is what they're planning to make out of those recycled wine bottles. They look cute all dressed up like this!

Вторсырье и к этому явлению, и даже к самому слову большинство наших соотечественников относится настороженно-негативно. Мне предлагают нечто из вторсырья Так. Значит, материалами, из которых это изготовлено, уже кто-то пользовался. А безопасно ли это пользоваться предметом из переработанных материалов? А долговечен ли он?. По поводу безопасности можно сказать так: покупая на рынке пластиковую посуду от неизвестного производителя, мы рискуем здоровьем больше, чем если бы эта посуда была изготовлена из ... read more »

Yesterday, my daughter had to make a science project and it was about making a presentation out of the 5 Kingdoms. She and her partner decided on making a book out of it. My crafty brain again jump started and suggested a pop-up book of the 5 Kingdoms. We made it using mostly recycled materials. The only thing new were the bond papers. We also had no more time to go out and buy new materials because she had to study for her exams the following day.
MATERIALS: 1. OLD HARDBOUND CHILDREN'S BOOK 2. ... read more »

This is a great way to find a new purpose for some clothing that has gone out of style. This is so easy, that a child could do it. It requires only simple sewing techiniques. I started by tearing out seams in three unwanted garments, but you could use fabric remnants from other projects you’ve completed. The fabric should be near denim weight. If you are using lightweight fabrics, then you will have to add more layers to get enough protection from hot pans when using your potholder. Cotton is a good choi... read more »
