My Favorite New Cure For Dried Up Paint Jars !

Badger Airbrush Mini Mixer
How many of us pick up a jar of paint only to find that it's unusable because it has dried out? I got so tired of that happening that I began to look for something that would help me rejuvenate the paint - saving me money and headaches. Most paint mixers are made for gallon buckets of paint and I was having little luck finding something that would work in my small jars of paint. That is until I discovered this little gem! It's one perfect little gadget that won't break your budget either! It's a bargain that really does it job.
Made by the well know airbrush company Badger, this little mixer is battery operated (AA) and has been worth it's weight in gold - or really, in paint! I just open a jar of dried up paint, add distilled water and mix away - leaving me with 'normal, beautiful, color that's ready to look shine again.  I've taken a jar of paint that was so dried up that I had little hope of resurrection. I added some distilled water and let it sit a bit and then mixed it, adding more water as needed, until the paint was good as new!
This is the 'working end' of this little marvel. Does the job and it's easy to clean !


no affiliation etc etc - just a happy chance purchase

  1. Great idea! I don't use much of that sort of paint, but this tool seems like it would be useful for lots of things.

Circular Knitting Needle Comparison

When I use something a lot I have to admit that I try to find the brand that works best for me. I never thought that I would ever be a scissor snob until I found Dovo brand scissors and, of course I love my trusty Fiskars too. I became a scissor snob thank to Dovo. 
Now I seem to be searching for the perfect knitting needles - the perfect one for me at least. I have been enjoying the 'chase' and I think I am close to knowing exactly what my preference is, and want, in a knitting needles. 
I only use circular knitting needles. When I first taught myself to knit myself  that's what I used and my preference has not changed. I began knitting with Addi Turbo needles. That is the brand that my LYS sold and I have always loved how slick and fast they are. I have sets of Addi clicks interchangeables in both lace and regular.  Over time, I have discovered what I want in a knitting needle: metal, the pointiest tip possible, a fast knitting, slick, metal needle and a very flexible c…

Fabric Stiffeners and Hardeners For All Occasions Plus A Recipe For Home Made Starch Alternative

I have had to become better acquainted with various ways to harden, stiffen or prevent fraying in cloth lately. It has been an enlightening journey, and I thought that I would pass it along the lessons that I have learned about a variety of excellent products that suit any need to 'tame' fabric for a variety of reasons. 
Fray Check. Who among us has not used this ubiquitous little potion over the years? It works like a charm to 'glue' up those raw edges on some of the most beautiful fabrics I use; ensuring that I can sew the fabric without fear of endless unraveling. This product has remained a favorite since I first discovered it many years ago. The only change that I think Prym/Dritz has made to it over the years is a finer application tip.
I have re-discovered my admiration for this product as I was making a holiday gift from some beautiful cotton that was especially prone to fraying! I have also recently learned that Fray Check can be removed with rubbing alcohol.…

Thread Matters and Easter Joy

My enchantmnt with embroidery continues unabated. Who knew?! I recently finished this 14" square; my interpretation of a pattern from Kathy Schmitz' book "Stitches From The Garden". She has another new book coming out soon called "Stitches For The Yuletide". I like her books because the designs can so easily be made your own. I have been working on some original designs (my own) lately and am looking forward to trying one of them soon. For quite a few years now I have been a fan of Wonderfil threads. My delight began innocently enough when I tried their luscious cotton thread called Konfetti. It's a 50 wt and is comparable to Superior Threads Masterpiece 50 wt cotton and Aurifil 50wt cotton, Konfetti has a lustrous, silky feel. For the record, I am also a fan of Masterpiece and Aurifil threads, but Wonderfil has developed some really unique thread lines and I cannot help jumping on their fan-wagon. I think that they have a unique line up of threads w…
