CO+K projects you've done

I've learned so much from this site, and all you wonderful artistic people! Since discovering it this past summer, I've used and made so many of the ideas I've found here. What about you? Do you now scrub your face with sea salt? (I do, every day)
Have you hacked up a t shirt and made it awesome, and have people begged to know where you got it? Here's what I've done:
*the aforementioned sea salt regimen
*Avocado+mayonnaise deep conditioner(once, may do it once a month or so)
*Made a bajillion little stuffed vegetables, treats, and fruits for my little girl to play with.
*Made tidy little cozies for all my gadgets(and posted a couple of them)
*sewn several sweet little felt friends.
*made bug shaped rainbow cupcakes for my daughter's 3rd birthday.
*made a frou frou tutu for her, and a tiny one for her toy puppy.
*started viewing pop tabs and bottle caps as valuable items, which should be whisked away and horded, before they get tragically thrown away.
*begun to feel validated in my child-like sense of whimsy, and need to save small scraps of fabric....

So class, what have you learned? XD

You made me laugh with your post. I know exactly how you feel. Hm. Let's see. Since finding this website, my house has become a workshop of craftiness. Every available surface is covered with works-in-progress, supplies for future projects, or finished pieces. I have made dresses out of men's shirts. I did every little origami thing I could find. I made a matchbook shrine, a slew of Scrabble tile jewelry items, and more than one style of purse/handbag things. I put my hair in a fohawk, painted my fingernails with newspaper, turned a pair of ballet flats that I had into a pair of boots, and made 40-something yo-yos!!!! I have stolen so many of my husband's t-shirts to make dresses and shredded T's that I have to go out tomorrow and buy him new ones. My son has donated some of his toys to my craft bin and, in return, has received whole days filled with crafty wonderness. I'm in love with making stuff! (giggles gleefully)
