Retromiad I just wanted to let you know that I just ordered the book. Once I get the funds for some yarn I'm going to have this as my semester project to take to college with me. How is yours coming along? What kind of yarn are you using? I'm excited to start.
22  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: I have a blowout-what can I do about it? on: July 15, 2008 03:38:58 PM
You can use the regular salt for now but any grocery store has sea salt and for pretty cheap too. Sea salt well help draw out even more gook and impurities. You'll be amazed at how much the swelling will go down, I know I was (trust me, my tragus looked like a little purple balloon stuck to the side of my head at one point lol). Ibuprofen helps with swelling too.

Downsize downsize downsize. Put something in but go back smaller. I don't PERSONALLY have experience however I do know a lot about piercings. That means go back to 8ga. You need to have something in there for the time being, to keep the shape but still allow room for the blown out skin to go where it belongs. But don't try to put a 6 in...you may do more permanent damage or tear your lobe completely! Do sea salt soaks once a night and then do your massages if you think they're helping. Make sure your hands are SUPER clean! Tea tree oil really helped me with the bump I had over my tragus, but it doesn't work for some people. If you think it's harming more than helping, discontinue the use of tea tree oil! But watch it though as I'm a little wary of using TTO on broken skin.

Most importantly, I always like to stress visiting your piercer. They know all of the best information and even though they can't reverse a blowout, they will be able to give  you a little insight.

25  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your weird guilty pleasure? on: July 07, 2008 09:20:41 PM
Y'know, I don't think mine is that odd at all but all my friends think I'm so weird. I mush up avocado and spread it on bread as if it were butter. Add salt and pepper and yum! Quick fix for when I can't seem to stomach any other college cafeteria food. I will put avocado in any meal I find appropriate.

Also, I put potato chips or cheez-its in my run of the mill coldcut sandwiches (turkey and cheese or ham and cheese, etc). It gives it an extra special crunch and a little zing! And I put my fries ON my burger, rather than next to it.

Oreos and cream cheese sounds good. But I have a huge sweet tooth so I'd probably cover them in chocolate sprinkles after dipping in cream cheese. lol
26  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What can I do with just 1 "Uno" card? on: July 07, 2008 12:49:30 PM
Cut it up into strips and fold them and then use the interestingly folded pieces on necklaces, earrings and/or bracelets. Or just fold the whole card to make one pendent for a necklace!
(you could always practice on a regular playing card first to test it out. lol)

You could make an aquarium scene if you make more and put it in a shadow box. They would be too pretty to not proudly display like that!
fantastic work! This is gorgeous.
