Boiling popsicle sticks isn't normal...  
... but on craft it is.

Mama Red, via telephone, hearing stove vent: "Are you making dinner?"
Me: "No, I'm boiling popsicle sticks."
Mama: "To eat!?"
Me: "It's Craft from Stash month and I have an infestation of popsicle sticks, so I thought I'd try this."
Mama: "Why do you have popsicle sticks?"
Me: "Because they only come in, like, packs of 10,000. I've been carrying them around for years!"
Mama: "But why did you buy them in the first place?"
Me: "I don't remember. It probably involved a glue gun."
Mama: "... oh. Well, make sure to make some actual food, too."

Craft. Not even once.

Eeeee! Those are awesome! I am totally gonna do that!

Which I am saying whilst knitting a shawl for Amanda Tapping. Dear god, I am a Craft Dork.

OMG you are! And possibly a yarn stalker? ILU. <3 <3 <3

Sadly the popsicle stick bracelets were non-successful on my end because I used ordinary popsicle sticks, which weren't long enough. I think tongue depressors are more the size required for proper braceletage! And I can't buy new craft things until May, and I still haven't figured out what to do with ten thousand popsicle sticks. THE PROBLEMS I HAVE.

those are *awesome*! now i must fight the urge to go play with crafts instead of finishing my freaking work already.

i'm pretty sure i can attribute the popsicle stick and pipecleaner hordes to Inner Child Night... unless, of course, they're newer stashes and you figured out a way to use all of the stuff from Brown. the remainder of my contributions are still up in my parents' attic and they're none too thrilled about it. *love*
