be careful that the PO charges you for the right size. I mailed the 'original' size priority mail box and got charged for a flat rate box which is a few dollars more. The boxes are about the same size so it's an easy mistake to happen.
So, when a swap says something like "we will be swapping <size or point details> with extras decided between partners" does that mean extras are required? I've seen a few swaps worded like this and I can't decide if that's just a (strong) hint to talk it over with your partner or an actual requirement making the swap 'bigger' than whatever the size/point details are. I know that 'ask the organizer' and 'talk with your partner' are the best ways to know for sure, I'm just curious how other people read a statement like that.
I've got lots of info & patterns etc on single sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 (A4-ish) paper. Besides taking it to a copyshop to be spiral-bound or 3-hole punched (I'd rather not have a removable page style) is there something I could myself? It'll be more than one book, and something I'd probably do whenever I was at my comfort-zone for dealing with loose papers.
I was thinking of gluing the edges together, like a scrap pad, and covering the glue with a cardstock (?) 'spine' but I don't know enough about bookbinding to know if that's reasonable.
If it makes a difference, it's not something that needs to be archive/historical quality, it's just a way to keep info together. I'd rather have the paper than pc files (especially since I don't have a scanner anyway)
I do know though, that folding the papers in half to make signatures won't work just because the info won't be in order anymore once it's bound. (Although.... if one page is folded in half for a signature with 4 pages, page 1 & 4 have the info and pages 2 & 3 will be blank for notes. That might work for some, I'll have to think about that.)
Any info, ideas, input greatly appreciated! Thanks
My bathroom is wallpapered in a beige-ish wallpaper with a calla-lily design. The calla-lilies are just outlined in a darker beige. Very blah. I was thinking of coloring in the cala-lilies with the craft acrylic paints that Michaels/ACMoore/Joanne's etc have, and spraying on a protective coat so it doesn't wash off.
I'd just do it on one wall and it has no water fixtures but the towel rack is on that wall so I expect at least some water spots.
Would these paints 'work' or is there another paint I should try? I'm thinking of taping a piece of clear plastic-wrap over a couple of them and painting it that way, just to see how it would look.
Are these around anymore? It's been a few years since I've really done much with beads, but it seems like all I can find are 6/0, 8/0 and 11/0 (or smaller). One website also said that the 11/0's used to be 11 beads/inch, but now it's closer to 17 or 18. (I liked the 10/0 size for beaded rope bracelets (like these) )
I just noticed that if I'm not logged in, I can't access the Member Profiles by clicking on the Member button on the front page, BUT if I know the direct URL to a member profile, I can get to it even though I'm not logged in.
Specifically keyboard keys kind of plastic. The lettering on my keyboard keys is wearing off (I didn't even notice because I don't usually look at the keys when I type, but it's driving my husband nuts).
Any tips for painting letters on plastic? I've been sticking on pieces of address labels with the letters written on, but those wear off too.
I don't sew much, so I'm not sure how possible this is.
I'd like to make a wristlet that has an outside pocket - the pocket has to be thin fabric, or even see through (like the kind some wallets have for the driver's license, it's a pocket but you can see what's inside)
I know how to make a wristlet but what's the best way to get a neat outside pocket? (besides practice ) My work ID would be in the outside pocket and the pocket fabric needs to be thin enough so the chip reader works through it.
I hope this is the right place - you know the search boxes on each board/thread? If you use the keyboard to tab over to the drop down box (the one with "entire board, current board, current thread" choices), the search function doesn't use the keyboard choice.
(f you use the keyboard to choose 'current thread' it still searches the entire board. If you use the mouse to choose 'current thread' it searches just the current thread. )
