locker hook coasters
Happy New Year & Happy New Decade to all my lovely readers and visitors. I kick-off my 1st 2010 post with a Giveaway Draw!!! Set-Of-4 Coaster to be won…. Who will be the lucky winner?

I had a wonderful break of a few days during Christmas, getting my daughter ready for her first day at primary school, bonding with my son who I have “neglected” and clearing up and rearranging my craft room. My craft room was so messy due to non-stop crafting. I sat down in my oh-so-clean-and-tidy room and began to think what am I going to make for the January Giveaway, so I brought out a bunch of books and materials I bought for myself as Christmas gifts…. after looking through all the materials and begin inspired by Theresa Pulido  – Hook, Loop & Lock, I decided to make locker hook crafts. It is truly fun and easy to make. Can you believe it, this is my first attempt and I gave myself a BIG pat on my back for being able to learn, digest, design and complete them in 4 days, most importantly, it has the quality of Craft Passion’ standard. And, by the way, I made my own tool for the “locking” since I haven’t have enough time to search for it as I presumed it is not very common in my country. Brand new year, brand new crafts… I learned again!!!

This set-of-4 coaster, which I call “Past-Present-Future”. The digits of 2010 can be arranged as 2001 – past, 2010 – present and 2100 – future. I hope the coaster can last until 2100 or/and the earth can still survive by then…. I started to worry about this lately especially after watching the movie “2012”… This really is no joke, the temperature is increasing, if it is not under control (the least that we can do), we will end up like in the movie. Well, we really need to help the earth by reduce-recycle-reuse! Just in case you didn’t know, I have a few recycle projects for crafts, click here to get there.

The materials I used for these coasters are new since they are meant to be given away. I would prefer to use recycle fabric or T-shirt yarn if possible, well, I will do that for my own use, may be a rug rag.

Love the coasters Joanne and would love to win them!

Can't wait for the tutorial so I can try to create something with my daughter (maybe jewellery) - just learning to knit at the moment.

I'm trying to help save the Earth by teaching my daughter to appreciate its value. Not to waste food and clothing, we also recycle all her clothing either in charity shops or by passing them on (she growing at the speed of light it seems).

We take our own bags to the supermarket and turn off lights etc we are not using. I also got the council to place the large recycling bins on my close (so everyone has the opportunity and no excuse)after they told me there were NO recycling collection in my area!

I'm also creating a website for my college course for a producer of recycled and natural toys - it is fictional at the moment but I am looking for someone to give it away to - so if you know of anyone please let me know (it will have up to 5 pages with a link to my portfolio).

All the best

Those are so cute, clever you! I tore some fabric into strips from my stash that had been hanging around for years and knitted it on large needles and made myself a funky bath mat! Use up your stash, that's my tip for saving the planet!

The coasters are so cute! This is your 1st trial in doing locker hook crafts, but the results are so wonderful, you are very talented… (Please give the coasters to me ya……… wink*** wink***)

I’m taking my part in saving this earth by reusing my old baju kurung and turned it into a colorful bed sheet, making a makeup case & tote bag from my soft jeans and using my old t-shirts as cotton rags. . (I’m adore your t-shirt yarn, but still don’t have any idea to use it.. as I’m too lazy in knitting.. hohoooo…)

I’m also a great mommy that cloth diapering my daughter.. hehee.. I believe that we need to reuse & recycle as much as we can. Save our Earth for our next generations, and save our pocket money also.. ;p Thanks to give me great ideas in how to do more!

These are cool and I like the colour combo. I don't think I'd put wet glasses on it if I win them! Too pretty!
