You are strangest craft item, hehe

I wish England had Kool-Aid! I'd dye so many wicked things.

I just use like plastic bags and things. Oh wait, bra straps!

Baby powder!
I sprinkle it on stickers so they're not sticky anymore. You're probably thinking why would you want to do that but it's been quite useful for a few projects.

Hairspray is so good for fixing stuff like pencil and charchol Happy someone at college had some proper spray stuff that looked expensive i just said 'why don't you just use hairspray'

I just have loads of random stuff that WILL be useful one day, like little hangers and stuff.

We also don't have Snapple, I love Snapple.

I have a old used dental tool pick. It is a double ended bent and pointed so I use it to pick up small seed beads with. My fingernails are always short so I have trouble picking up seed beads with anything else. When I leave it on my craft table the cat likes to roll it around.

i couldn't ask that of you! Plus I wouldn't know what to do with it when I got it.

I'd probably just drink it!

It is a drink, right?

koolaid is a drink yea. You just get the kind without sugar and add water and you can use it as a dye

I was having a conversation with my mom a while ago, and I asked if "they" have boy scouts in England, and she said, "I think they pretty much have everything we do." Not Kool-Aid though. I've always wanted to play with it as a dye. You're not missing anything too tasty. Hawaiian Punch is much better, but not as portable...

As for strangeness, I've been coating a couple of candy hearts with nail polish for a few days now. They will become earrings, decorations on a card, something.

And I collect interesting things I find on the ground to make something out of. I found this strange rubber gauge of some sort that looks like a goddess's headdress and a piece of metal that looks like Hathor's horns! I don't know what I will put these things on yet, but I know what they will be when they take shape.

Boy Scouts came from England! Baden Powell an' all that.

Also we don't have biscuits and gravy. We have scones (which i believe are your biscuits) only we have them with cream and jam. BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE MEANT FOR! the idea of having them with gravy turns my stomach!

Maybe they're different enough for both options to be ok?
