Shrinky Dink Flowers (use shaped hole punches and colored markers, and the end of a paintbrush to create these flowers; then use beads and fasteners to fashion into jewelry - earrings, necklaces) [Tip: you can also use clean plastic containers instead of buying expensive shrinky dink sheets]

Better than salt dough? 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1 cup baking soda, 3/4 cup water. Bake at 175 for about an hour. Great idea for modern, matte, textural white Christmas ornaments – via The Woodside Kitchen

Fort Kit. Coolest idea ever! What a great gift idea too!

    have you ever heard of someone having a reaction to the filling in a pin cushion? A friend gave me an adorable little green-apple shaped pin cushion a few weeks ago, and since I've been using it, I am finding that I have a numbness/tingling in my lips and tongue when I am pinning quilts for piecing (yeah...old fashioned pinning- I am one of those people that was taught to pin holding the spare pins in my mouth while using both hands to arrange the fabric) At first I thought it was my imagination, but now I am totally convinced that this is related to the pin cushion. There is something hard and irregular shaped & heavy in the filling at the base of the pincushion -the rest of it seems to be soft batting type filling - I just can't imagine what it is. --I'm not going to use the pin cushion anymore, but now I'm trying to figure out how to clean the pins since it appears the effect is lingering.....hate to toss the pins, but I'm not sure if this stuff is toxic or what... Any info/advice appreciated- I've never come across this before p.s. - tag on the pin cushion says made in India if that gives any hint of the filling

    I'd throw it away, and get new pins.
