11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: wedding/anniversary quilt (wordy and kinda pic heavy) on: February 09, 2010 05:48:32 AM
Your quilt is a gorgeous work of art.  I must ask, since I am just outside of STL, what is this "Anthro" place that you speak of.  I've never heard of it and I am intrigued about something that could inspire such a beautiful piece.

I'm in the don't-paint-the-cabinets-camp.  They look like really expensive custom cabinets.  They might look a bit dated now, but if you paint them white, you can never get the beautiful wood back, at least not without a ridiculous amount of work and nasty chemicals. 

Changing the hardware could go a long way.

Love the purple, it's similar to the color I have in my dining room.  (I still can't believe my dear fiance let me paint the dining room purple.)

Neat idea.  I'll keep this in mind if I run across a box of floppies in a thrift store.  I was just trying to explain to my 7 year old brother what a floppy disk was.  That's the weird situations that come from having siblings 19 years younger than you.

Very cool, but I must disagree with your zombie fighting strategies.  Flaming zombies are bad bad bad.  Grenades will only attract more.  Oh, man, I so should have put a nerd alert at the beginning of this post. 
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cinematic Titanic/MST3K shadow box and ticket display- signed! on: November 21, 2009 11:22:25 PM
We just got home from seeing Cinematic Titanic Live!  This is the second time we've gotten to see them.  I made a shadow box to display last year's ticket stubs that was a nod to Mystery Science Theater.  I brought it with me this year and the whole crew signed it for me.  They were even impressed by it!  I was so proud, but I managed to spit out a few words.  (I'm a big dork about things like that.  For some reason, any time I meet someone I've seen perform I turn into a blushing fan girl no matter how famous or not famous they are.)  Anyway, here's pics!

My creation:  The screenshot is from Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, the movie they riffed last year, also a MST3K movie.

16  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Probably the best Happy Hooker project I've ever done... on: October 31, 2009 05:21:58 AM
Thank you for this!  I had no idea that it was possible.  Mine cost $12, but it included clear plastic covers and it's still cheaper than replacing the book.  I was about to lose pages. Hooray!

Thanks!  So far, I've only used Modge Podge for the whole thing, but I plan to do something more waterproof on the top. 
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Calvin and Hobbes TV Tray on: October 12, 2009 01:59:03 AM
I bought a standard wooden TV tray at a yard sale for the bartered price of $1.  It was structurally sound, but the top was water stained and scratched.  "I shall decoupage this..."  I thought.  And I thought and I thought and I thought...  for weeks I was undecided about what sort of design I wanted.  Luckily, I remembered that we had some Calvin and Hobbes collections in the basement.  This is my fiance's all time favorite comic strip.  And so, from a water damaged book destined for the trash pile....   



At first, I was going to use color strips only, but the book didn't have much to choose from and most were of Calvin's daydreams.  The artwork is fantastic, but not instantly recognizable as Calvin and Hobbes.  The black and white strips, on the other hand, where iconic and much more visually interesting than I had realized.  I chose strips based on visual interest and variety.  I wanted to include an example of many of the scenes in the strip...  home, school, fall, winter, spring, summer. bedtime, bathtub...  There was just so much to try to fit in on one small table! 

My fiance, who is often annoying by my projects (the space they occupy, more so than the crafting itself) really likes it.  Here's a few more pics...



19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Link, Neil, All right fine Neil (Link) Hat on: September 03, 2009 05:55:01 AM
Inspired by this Crafster post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=312331.0

And motivated by The Legend of Neil (NSFW, but you should really check it out): http://www.effinfunny.com/legend-of-neil

I made this crochet hat:



I used two strands of Simply Soft Eco held together and sort of made up the pattern as I went along.  I'm trying to duplicate it with another hat and I'm having trouble.  I should really take notes when I want to remember how I did something.  Anyway...  I want to craft more Neil items and perhaps some crafts for The Guild as well, but I haven't thought of anything yet.  Sorry about the messy table in the background and my less than perfect hair.
20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: uninportant --but --the best way to make a yummy milkeshake on: May 25, 2009 12:56:29 PM
Stick blenders (immersion blenders) are great for making milkshakes with less mess.  I think there's one on the menu this afternoon.
