Re: Disc-y Decorations!

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Charleston, I know I love the lowcountry entirely. (I'm a local.) That sort of decoration is actually pretty common in elementary and middle schools around here. Personally I think it'd be interesting to see what an experienced crafter could do with a CD and some supplies. :)

Re: Restyling the Regift

Bonniedoo has a good idea, if the brother will get the humor of it. lol.

I suggest turning them into a stuffed animal for a niece or other female relative, or maybe trim them down and turn them into storage pockets.

Re: How to Make a Bangle from a Vintage Map

This is such a wonderful idea, and perfect for those of us who like vintage images. I am wondering if it would be possible to make one with some of the strips running along the dome. I think that's what I'll try when I do this. Thanks so much for sharing!
