Re: Get started...

John Seymours The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency is the best one in my collection at the moment. It covers a wide range of topics and gives a good grounding, plus gave me one or two ideas I hadn't thought of. If there is something specific that sparks your interest though you will need to buy...

Re: Eco home audit

If you have things such as burn gel and itchy bite cream in your medicine cabinet you can swap over to having an aloe plant, I'm not sure if it needs to be aloe vera or if any aloe will do. I'd always heard they were brilliant plants but a month ago I managed to chemically burn my ears (serves me ri...

Re: Online selling- thoughts?

I agree about getting more sales through forums and communities. The people I know who sell stuff they make all started off via friends, family and like minded groups who are interested in the same thing. After a few years they have been able to build up their success (to varying levels) via word of...

Re: Ghost? Probably not, but...

Both I'd say, a ghost acting through your mind, if that makes sense....it does to me anyway. It was a ghost but you were the only one who seemed to see and hear him because there's a link between the two of you.

Re: Good Morning Everyone

Morning, No idea what the weathers like here, a window is seen as an unnecessary expense for the company so I am contained in a concrete box until my escape later this afternoon. When that happens I need to sort out the fish pond as the fountain has become clogged again, clean out and water my anima...

Re: Home made bone meal

The small soft feathers can be used to stuff pillows, cushions, soft toys, could use a layer of them inside a quilt, removable seat covers, soft cat and dog beds, stuffing for earmuffs or anything else that needs a bit of padding.

Re: Ideas for plastic coat hangers?

Thanks for the ideas guys!
I don't have enough hangers for a lampshade like that but I'll see if any friends would like a few jazzed up ones.

Ideas for plastic coat hangers?

Hello everyone, As the title suggests I've got a couple of plastic coat hangers going spare which I'm going to use for crafty things. So far the only ideas I have for them is to make peg bags (or bags like peg bags but not actually used for holding pegs) and mobiles. I only have 5 or 6 spare so thos...
