My creative brain hurts

I have been having a blast jumping from blog to blog. There is some seriously amazing things out there. So many things to try
(crafts and stuff not drugs). I want to try this

and this

Anyone want to take a calligraphy class with me?
And so many more things I find online. It gets a bit overwhelming.

But now on a serious note. Does anyone else have a hard time with all the new concentrated laundry detergents out now? It just feels wrong to pour a mere tablespoon of blue liquid into the washing machine. I keep using too much so all the good efforts of saving the planet by cutting down on plastic bottles are going to waste.

i am the same way about the concentrate dlaundry detergent! i think it is costing us a lot more $ because i use the same amount of detergent, but pay more for it because it is concentrated! glad i'm not the only one!

I completely agree about the laundry detergent. I'm the same way, I keep using the same amount as always and it's pointless.

What is that first stuff Merilee?

What are those chocolate things? Are there nuts inside?

I agree about the detergent - I always worry my clothes aren't really getting clean (which means we REALLY smell because I only wash towels once or twice a week).

the first picture that I want to try is chocolate molding. I want to make my own little Easter chocolates. Those are chicks and lambs. You just can't tell from the back.

Chris C said...

Merilee you should make those!!! I will be the official tester if you want.

Sheri you need to wash the towells more often - eeewwww... you guys do stink!

I have some chocolate molds if you want to borrow them. I confess I haven't ever used them though because chocolate doesn't last long in our house.

Bridget said...

That calligraphy looks way cool. YOu should do that. And the chocolate if you're going to share with me. :)

Jodi said...

I, too use too much concentrated detergent. Man...those companies are making buck off us. We should all start using the regular stuff again.
Chocolate molding sounds cool. I would like to learn to do that...and then eat my creations!

I know what you mean, I go from blog to blog in search of fun little sewing projects like aprons and stuff. too many cute ideas out there.

Both the calligraphy and chocolate look scrumptious! I did a little calligraphy my freshman year in high school. It was such fun! Unfortunately, it's gone the way of the do-do bird for me.

How are you guys all using too much? It comes with a smaller measuring cup thing!

hailey said...

Merilee said...

Ashley- I would love to borrow your chocolate molds. I was going to have to go buy some. Thanks, that's awesome.

I am in love with calligraphy and have a set of pens and a do-it-yourself book if you want to borrow it. Also, the library would be a great place to check. If you find a class let me know, I'd love to join you.
Also, the chocolate molds are super easy and cute too!

If we lived within a few hundred miles of each other, I would take a calligraphy class with you.
