I love any kind of craft that saves me money on supplies and helps the earth!!

I can not down load this with acrobat it says wrong format every time . Anyone have any ideas ? I would love to have this book I am an avid re- cycler

HELP, please! I'd love to download this great book, but after the cover page, I get an error message saying that we don't have that font and I'm to notify the person responsible for the download. Pages 2 on come up blank. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As a Gramma this is really great for my crafty times w the kids...thanks!!

I do not have a printer. Could you mail me a copy of this. I also belong to Terracycle. I recycle bottles, cans(2x's 1st I mae a windchime, then when it loses its' color then I place the cans in the recycling bend). I do plastic things. I use green bags from different companies. I shed my papers, then place them in my flower vegetables beds. So as you can see, I do beleive in "recycling". Thank-you for your time. Make it a great day, Donna

No it is not intended to be a link to the pattern I'm not sure if its the provider of the space for the website or which part of the process in setting sites up but many free and low cost websites have this By setting up your site through that service provider you have to agree to let them identify keywords within your text and these keywords are turned into links for commercial sites The service and sometimes the website owner are then paid by the commercial sites sometimes very indirectly for the amount of people that click on these links and are forced to the commercial site I consider it an extremely shady and disagreeable tactic but agreeing to this kind of thing is usually the only way a non-stinking-rich person can set up a website without re-mortgaging their house ao selling a kidney Nothing is truly free greatRead More patterns by the way

If you click on the green words "household items" in 4 above it takes you to a commercial site for I think it is Sears. It holds your browser there and you cannot back up to this page. I think this could be called a bad link don't you?
