1  UNITED STATES / Maine / Re: So how many people here are from Maine? on: March 25, 2008 07:33:45 PM
I'm from Maine.  Did most of my growing up in Bath. (I consider myself a Mainer, after spending 3/4 of my life here, besides where do you 'come from' when you're a Navy brat born there, lived elsewhere and moving god knows where) anyways.... 
Moved to central Maine (Palmyra) when I met my husband (he was born and raised there).  We're down in Kittery now, (ick) and moving to Southwest Harbor in a month! and I have to say we're WICKED excited. Yea!  I was wondering if anyone could give me some stores in the ellsworth, bangor areas (craft stores, ie, micheals, a.c. moore, etc, and fabric stores).  I don't want to have to just go to walmart, their selection always leaves something to be desired.
Thanks all!
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / question about shoe recon **originally posted in wrong spot** on: March 18, 2008 05:12:05 AM
Ok so first off, I didn't pay attention to where I posted my question... *smack forehead** DUHH So here it is in *hopefully* the right spot... Sorry moderators!

  I have a pair of really cute slippers that look like cowboy boots (sorry no pic of them yet) and I've worn them out to the bus stop and everyone thought they were shoes.  Which gave me the idea...why not turn them into shoes/boots!! Make my own pair of ugg like boots, only more unique!  Only I'm not sure where to begin.  I was thinking of sacrificing a pair of flip flop soles for the bottoms, but not sure how to attach the boot part.  I want to make them so they are more wearable for outside (as of now, the soles aren't waterproof, if I walk outside and its wet, my feet get wet). The flip flops don't have any traction, not that that's a necessity, but thought it would be good to have some.... I'm stumped.   Any hints or ideas would be great!
Thanks!

awesome organizer!  I cut up 3 pairs of jeans in hopes of making something like this.  I love the patchwork pockets.  I would have never thought to do something like that!  And I just happen to have a bunch of old quilt pieces laying about!
Haha I love craftster and all the amazingly creative people, such inspiration!

WOW! awesome job!  I couldn't even do something like that! KUDOS!!
 I would love my 7 yr old to take more interest (she even got a 'my first' sewing machine for christmas) but she is a wonderful talented artist and hobby crafter.  Some day it will come I'm sure. 
 I think she is a lot like her mother, a tad bit intimidated.

those dresses are gorgeous!  and a little girl can never have too many dresses.  My two girls love to wear dresses.. I'm working up the courage to make them a bunch of summer dresses.  Mine probably won't come anywhere near the awesome-ness of yours. (I'm a wanna be awesome but very novice sewer).
Thanks for the inspiration!
