Default Re: Share a tip! (a feel good thread!) :)

When threading a needle, fold the thread and poke the loop through the hole instead of putting the end in your mouth or purchasing a threader. The loop pushes through and then you just pull it out the small end of the thread on the other side.

Read a magazine with a good recipe, craft idea or article? Then later you can't find which issue had the craft in it? This used to happen to me a lot. Now, I tape an index card on the back of the magazine or cookbook and write what I liked. Months later when I'm trying to find the cute way to paint a chair I found at a yardsale, I can flip through the backs of the books w/o opening each and searching for hours.
