Yeah we were going to send him letters in it too.  I've already started writing, and I write a little bit each day.  Also I am going to get everyone to contribute a little note too.  Teachers, friends etc.  And this totally sucks, but I don't think he is allowed to have any contact with us, so the stamps won't work.  But I didn't even think of that.  I'll have to reserve that idea for another time.
32  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I need very tiny things for a care package!!! on: May 25, 2004 09:12:16 PM
My friend just started basic training for the air force last week and we want to send him a care package.  The only thing is that anything we send him, he has to be able to carry away in his pockets.  So we were thinking that we would just do one of those small bubblewrap envelopes, so we need ideas for tiny things to put in it. 

Here are the ideas I have so far:
Mini photo album with pictures
Cross-stitch of a fighter jet (I actually have a pattern for this!)

So that's all I've been able to think of.  The snag that I always hit is that he's a guy.  I can think of a lot of things that I could send but most of them are all cutesy.  Not exactly guy appropriate.  I think I even might be stretching it a little with the cross-stitch, but it is pretty cool, and I was going to write his name on the wing and everything.

Anyways if you guys had any ideas that you would be willing to share I would really appreciate it.  Thank you so much!

I am a huge Trading Spaces fan, and on one show they glued a bunch of old patterns in the entryway and the closet of a bedroom.  It looked so cool, although the people who's room it was weren't too keen on it.
34  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:duct tape roses on: February 13, 2004 11:29:03 PM
i made a variation of these a couple of years ago.  they were roses, but i had no idea what i was doing so i just kinda scrunched up a bunch of tape until it looked like a flower.  it worked pretty well.  i made them to go on a skirt i was making....i was over at my friends house one day and we were talking about trash (no idea why...) and i told them that i would make a series of dresses and skirts out of everyday items.  the first one i would do was the garbage bag and duct tape one.  for my jr. high grad i had this grey crinkle skirt that eveyone teased me about, that i was wearing a garbage bag, so.....and this was all before i knew people made entire outfits out of duct tape!  anyways the skirt turned out really well, it's an underskirt of clear plastic with ruffles and a short little skirt out of black witha duct tape waistband and duct tape roses all over it.....anways this was my little adventure with duct tape roses.
hmmmmm...now that i'm thinking about this project i should start working on it again!  i have all these desidns for dresses out of rope, toilet paper rolls, bubblewrap, and even pop can tabs!  the only problem is collecting enought of this stuff to work with.....i think i'm almost there though....

Ok, the picture didn't work.  How do you post a pic then?

I made one like this a couple of years ago to display all of my magnets.  But what I did was just take a piece of galvanized sheet metal (I love the swirly look of it), and drilled two holes in the top, and went to the hardware store and bought a funky looking chain to hand it with.  The whole thing cost me like 2.50$ Canadian to make.
Here's a pic. (hopefully....not quite sure what I'm doing...)

37  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:What about asian knitting? on: January 16, 2004 10:25:14 PM
I learned how to knit while I was living in Japan, but unfortunately by the time I left I was only in the scarf-making phase.  I used to spends hours just going through the knitting books section of the public library.  They had some amazing patterns.  And I absolutely loved the yarn there.  I haven't seen anything like it here back in Canada.  Looking back now, I'm really kicking myself.  I went shopping at a department store one day and they were having a huge sale of all their yarn.  50cents a skein.  And it was so funky.  I especially liked this orange and blue super chunky stuff.  Anyways I was on my way home pretty soon and already had way too much luggage so I didn't get it.  Stupid, stupid me!  I so wish I had.  Anyways, so there's my little blurb on Japanese knitting.

So did it turn out that they were wearable?  Did the modge podge crack or anything?  Just wondering...

I saw wine bottles used once as interesting picture frames.  Thinking about it now though, it would be a little tricky to get the picture in.  I guess you could roll it up, push it down the neck and then use really long skewers or something to position it.  Not very much room for error.  But it looked really cool.
