first claim, out of 2 possible, havent yet claimed this round

who i am...
im 23, graphic designer, very crafty girl. love knitting sewing cross stitching fabric printing and everything that have to do with hand-making. i have a small dog - mini dachshund called roky which is my very best friend. i was born and live in tel aviv which is a big city in israel.
i love making up my craft projects, almost never uses tutorial or (god-forbid) patterns. i take much inspiration looking thru many craft blogs, and also browsing etsy and flickr.
(oh, and im vegan - so please no leather etc. wool is fine)

things i love
dachshunds
dogs
squirrels
all other animals
polka dots
plaid
neutral and/or textured fabrics
minimal design
useful stuff
craft supplies
Dr seuss!
60s style (minimal, not hippie Smiley
colorful asian designs
strawberries
clever design

colors
i like most colors
smokey colors
medium pink
not my cup of tea: neons, pastels, clown barfs Smiley

my wish list
+ a door sign showing a girl and a dog in a fun position together (if you choose this, i'd like to send you a pic of my pup so you make the dog in those colors)

+ my wallet is coming apart, id love to have a new handmade one! (im gona need place for change, few cards and bills)

+ (sewn) newsboy hat in a neutral colors. something a man would wear too Smiley

+ sleeveless secretary style blouse. i'm aiming for a simple and loose design, something that would be kinda easy to make. heres a sample of my taste, it absolutely doesnt have to be exactly like one of those. http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/blouse

+ this strawberry little bag! http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/c8045d4ac1191b74b29cb967ba838bfb?offset=20

+ a kinda large pincushion in a fun shape (i love those that look like mushroom, little houses, stuff like this. just no animals - cos i would be able to stick pins in them...). if you could stick something heavy in the lower part - so it would stand like a big boy, that would be great as well)

+ a circular needle organizer. im not sure about the design i want - but just something that keep each one separate and not tangled all over eachother Smiley

+ id love some hand-dyed yarn, something i can knit into this:
http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/0d8583aa7567ff2c54dee18b776c6dbe?offset=40

+ a piece of jewelry, necklace would be best Smiley

+ sturdy fabric basket to fif in about 35x35x35 space. any fabric really, just dont really like stuff that resembels tie-dye.

+ handmade stamps. maybe dog themed ? Smiley


craft supplies
(i just love the idea of getting stuff that someone doesnt use anymore - so please dont worry about getting new stuff)

+ fabric markers, the simple stuff you find in any craft store. (i mean like markers that stay on the fabric after its washed, not the type you use to mark fabric and then disappears after 24h or so)
+ pin maker, for making stuff like this: http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/5f2e36b9a54439e7c5322998f654b3b5?offset=40
+ book binding screws (im not sure exactly how theyre called, but they look something like this: http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/8a7e1d8b9794c7efb56ed55440b86607?offset=60)
+ book corner protectors
+ old clothes / sheets you have that i can recycle!
+ any non-strech fabric remains you have. i hate buying new fabric when theres so much un-used fabric all over the world Smiley
+ rotary cutter
+ self healing surface. any size would do, id love to get your old one if youre getting a new one.
+ nice beads Smiley
+ stamping rubber (big erasers would do as well)
+ stamp carving tool (i dont have any, so anything basic would be great)
+ sticky wallpaper leftovers (i use them to make cards)
+ gold filled or silver findings
+ faux pearl beads. would prefer cream / white etc
+ color changing yarn, to make this http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/0d8583aa7567ff2c54dee18b776c6dbe?offset=40
+ hidden magnetic snaps (like those: http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/b830e7dfce50b14a4ce357c676b99a8c?offset=100)

if you have something that even resembles a loom:
http://www.wists.com/shegoesla/8cb71845456ec2759880474ffd665fd0?offset=100
id pay for postage (and give you my very soul as well)

not really a supply, but id love to get any vintage / non-vintage dress pattern. prefer 60s style, but would love any other area as well!

things i wont use (or just hate)
+ things that look like animal skins
+ god forbid real animal skin
+ too kitsch
+ skulls etc
+ anima
+ cosmetics
+ tea/coffee (its too freaking hot in here for those)

8  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Frosted Glass Tutorial -- How to make frosted glassware with Armor Etch! on: October 20, 2010 01:32:12 AM
I would presume it means it is not completely food safe.  It probably can be chipped off, but I have not seen that happen myself (I have one coaster that I painted proably about 8 years ago and it's fine and I am not the most gentle person sometimes).  So if you want to paint glasses or something, maybe leave a half inch lip around the top, and if painting bowls, mugs, do the outside only.

yeah, i guess that if i'm gonna do glass - it doesnt really matter which side would i paint over Smiley
i cant wait to try it!

how about the porcelain? is it kinda the same thing just for porcelain? like washing-safe, but not really suppose to be in the mug itself?
i havent decided yet which way to go ...

Get the paints in the bottles, they do come in light colours, including white.  The markers are more limited in colours available.

Here is the link to their glass paint - Vitrea 160 - the colour chart is in the lower left in red; it has a silver shimmer paint, a glossy white, and a frosted white.  It is more translucent than the Porcelaine 150:

http://en.pebeo.com/index.php/Creative-leisure/Decorate-surfaces/Vitrea-160

It will probably suit your needs more than the Porcelaine 150.  They also sell a diluant for their paints too, so if you want it more translucent, or thinner for a finer draw, you can thin it.

Here is the Porcelaine 150 link
http://en.pebeo.com/index.php/Creative-leisure/Decorate-surfaces/Porcelaine-150

The Gallery Glass and other paints like that in the craft store won't do, because they are surface decoration.  This paint (and I am sure there are other brands, but this is what I have used and am happy with consistently), once baked, is permanent enough to wash.  I am not sure about the food safety though, so look into that before putting it where food/drink may touch.  Until it is baked, it is water soluble.  I have used another bakeable paint, but I bought that years and years ago off a shopping channel and have not seen it since.  But it was not as good quality, and would bubble.

oh my!
do you rock or do you rock? Cheesy

thanks for the so specific answer. now that i know exactly what i'm looking for - it'll be much easier trying to find them locally!

eta:
i've seen this note about the paint:
"Only the areas not intended to be put in contact with food must be decorated. "
- doesnt that mean that it isnt really food safe? or that food of some kind may take it off?

If you want to paint, you can use the permanent oven bakeable paints, like Pebeo Vitrea or Porcelaine and paint on the glass.

do those come in white too? (cos i've seen many marker like but they're all colorful)

thanks so much Smiley
