    free time at college-need project ideas

    I'm seem to have a lot of free time at school. I've been doing a lot of crochet work and cross stitch but need some other ideas of things to do. Anyone have any ideas of some projects I could do that don't require too much material. I'm living in a dorm room so I don't have too much space for craft supplies. I've thought of scrapbooking but don't want to bring all my supplies there....I figure when I really want to scrapbook I can do it at home on the weekends. I can't come up with any ideas of craft ideas for some reason.

    I am also looking for a small Christmas/holiday project to give as favors for a party. Something cute, creative but cheap. My family has a party every year and last year I painted the plaster ornaments, a couple years ago I made candy snowmen. We have to make around 75.

    Have you thought about 'altered books'? You can buy either a second hand book or use an old empty journal.

    Paste 5 to 10 pages together at a time. Add collage pictures, photographs, magazine cutouts. Use watercolor paint washes, ink washes, computer printed words, fabrics, fibres.

    I guess it's a bit like scrapbooking but all you need are scissors, ink or paints, and a stash of bits and pieces.

    Here's a few links

    As for party favors, could you do something foody like ginger sugar cookies in christmas shapes and decorate with red, green and white ready to use icing.

    Or what about these two glittery ornaments

    For holiday favors, you could make decorative candle wraps. Buy cheapo votive cups and tea lights at the craft store. You can decorate them however you want.

    I have used a decorative holiday hole punch through some vellum secured with wire before.

    You could also decoupage. Or I've seen some cool things with beads and wire knitting.

    Crochet Christmas ornaments, fridgies, or dishcloths?

    Cross stitch ornaments? Fridgies?

    Sew/crochet tiny stockings and fill them with x?

    75? Good thing you are starting early.

    If we talk about essay writing services I can confirm that there are many of them on the modern market. Of course, there is a problem with scammers because it is difficult to find our whether the service is good or not. I have tried to buy book report on many different services and many of them were fakes.
