Beatrice Long's scrappy baby quilt - She says: "I made 8" string squares using freezer paper. I then placed a white 8" square right sides together and drew a diagonal line corner to corner. Sewed 1/4" on either side of the line and then cut on the line making two 1/2 square triangles. Play with the placement till you are satisfied. Mine is 56x40." by twila

pinner said: This is my version of the ever so popular PVC spider. Like everyone else's, it is made using PVC for the legs. I used pool noodle foam to build up the joints and then covered them in duct tape. I added Great Stuff expanding foam for texture. My spider's head is made of styrofoam, covered in faux fur. It is attached to the wood base using velcro for easy disassembly and storage. The abdomen is a child's inflated punching ball, by ladylynne213

While the mixture is still wet, encourage her to press brown tissue paper squares onto the project.

This card was made using the Wood Textures designer series paper as the focal point. Though coordinating colors aren’t listed, you just can’t go wrong with most of the brown neutrals to bring out the colors in the wood. I added Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla for accentuating the designer series paper. The sentiment is from Cool Treats, stamped in Early Espresso. The sentiment is layered on top using the Layering Squares Framelits. by roxanne

This is how I constructed the shape! It's so easy :) You only need leftover foam dubblesided tape paper tape and a pattern of the shape of your horns. Then just cut out some layers (I used 3 layers per horn) out of the foam. Take some small leftover foam pieces to stick to the inner shape. This will help get a round shape. Then stick another of the shapes to it. And because it is foam you can bend and shape it untill you love your result. Repeat on the backside and then cover the whole thing... by Ирина Дубровская

Copycat 54th Street Gringo Dip  This is one of the best dips I've ever made. Really easy to make. I melted all of the cheeses with the milk before I added the pepper and pico de gallo, then the spinach. Keep mixing the cheese so it doesn't burn. Really easy to make and REALLY good.

1. Part your hair, wherever your part happens to fall naturally.

2. We’re starting with the weave-braid-ish thing at the top. Grab a chunk of hair from either side of your head, I took mine from the vicinity of around/right above my ear. Give each chunk a couple of twists, maybe spritz with a little water or product if your hair is especially slippery, and then cross them, right over left, in the back of your head.

3. Grab two more chunks, this time from lower–I did behind/below the ear. These will make the second/lower weave and basically hold your ponytail in place. Twist them a time or two (i find twisting them–but not supertight, just once or twice–gives the braid a little definition.) and spritz. Cross these over the same way you did the first ones, with right side on top of left side, and then combine them with the first two chunks. You should now be holding a piece of hair in your right hand, a piece of hair in your left hand, and still have a lot flowing free at the nape of your neck.

4. Now we’re going to make the ponytail. You can do it two ways: use a ponytail holder, whihc will be covered up by the crossed-over pieces, or just use your hair has the ponytail holder. If you are using a ponytail holder, gather the remaining hair and make it into a low ponytail, below the crossed-over stuff we did before. (Probably easiest to have a friend do this while you hold your crosses in place still.) Then, wrap the ends of your crossed-over-pieces around the ponytail holder by crossing the one on the leftside, underneath the ponytail and then across the top, and then cross the right side underneath and then back over top. Cross them both under again, combine them, and use a bobby pin or two to hold them under the ponytail. (TO do this, put the hair in the bobbypin and then push the bobbypin upwards, or upside down, into the ponytail holder. by aniellabrooke
