How to Macrame a Plant Hanger (via This Year’s Dozen)


Well, this is my craft project for the summer.
I know my mother had macrame EVERYTHING when I was at camp… because I made EVERYTHING I could out of either Macrame or that plastic cord (we called it gimp, but I don’t think that’s the real name). I even tried to learn how to make my own sailor’s knot bracelet.
Well, I want to hang between 6 and 8 plants inside, and a few more outside. The price for the hanging baskets are ridiculous! They are not even what I want, so why should I pay $15-20 for them?
This is my answer…
Agnes and I will make our own plant hangers, and if we get good enough, maybe we can even sell a few of them at a craft store or give them to people for gifts.
Hope you enjoy this post… it is the best instructions I have found, so far.
God Bless!

The End of the Story… or the Begining?


Ok, I know this request is a bit early, but I am looking for something one of my friends did for her daughter about 3 years ago… for Easter.
It is the Easter story in charms and trinkets that you put in little plastic eggs, in an egg carton.
If ANYONE knows what I am talking about, could you help me find the list. I have the egg cartons, and will be getting the eggs as soon as they go on sale, but I cannot remember what I am supposed to put in each egg, or which Bible verses need to go with each egg.
Thanks in advance for the help!
