I saw this in BUST too (I adore that 'zine gone magazine!!).  It's a great idea... can't wait to see the finished product!

Hope you guys all had a nice holiday:)  I know we've discussed thrift shops in the area (Goodwill, Salvation Army...) but have any of you had any luck with local clothing consignment places?  I love shopping at Goodwill but I'd like to find someplace that does a little weeding for you already.  I really need some fun, cheap, funky tops for winter and haven't had much luck.  I found a place called New Enuf that was decent in Waynesville but earned points mainly for size selection and "work" clothes but loses points for uniqueness.  I've found a few places in the Yellow Pages but not really what I was looking for.  Plato's Closet in Centerville came the closest but (and maybe it was just the vibe I got from the workers) they seemed to cater more to the junior/teen crowd.  There was a place in the Kansas City area that I visited frequently called Arizona Trading Company that had the coolest stuff (and they took trades, obviously).  Anything like that here?  What about a Junior League Thrift?  They're a little stuffy but they always seem to have some good quality stuff. Any suggestions?  Also, I'd love to find a good place to find beads/bead-working materials (other than Michaels). 

Thanks for the help!  (Welcome to Craftster buckeye_beck)

I just spent 5 hours making a book for my mother-in-law for X-mas... thanks in great part to my new paper from Marco's!  I usually make/alter my own paper for projects because I'm so poor, so it was nice to have fancy paper to play with and mix with my own stuff.

Ooohh.... cute idea!

I went to Marco's Paper today and injured myself!!  I had so much stuff in my left arm with my arm bent for so long that now my muscle is all tight and sore!  That place was great but it was almost too stressful for me today.  I've got so many paper craft ideas running through my head for X-mas that I kept getting inspiration for different things and now I've purchased a bunch of stuff and can barely remember what my great idea in the store was all about.  (It may sound like I'm griping, but I really had a great time Grin ).  I think the item that caused the most bodily harm was the 10lb stack of odd-shaped card-stock I got for $5!  Thanks for the amazing tip!

I know this thread is old but I was searching so I could get some ideas for a gun stencil for a shirt for the hubby. 

Just throwing a little support to ExileInGuyville because I think the "chicks dig gun" shirts would be fun and you shouldn't have to worry about offending because some chicks do, in fact, dig guns.  No one worries about offending gun owners/lovers when they bash them all over the place. If someone made a "girls against guns" tee no one would care what the gun-toting chicks would think.

Not trying to argue I just didn't think a person making a request for stencil ideas should be made to feel bad for the content of her tee.  If this site is about a free exchange of ideas then I don't want to worry about censoring my ideas.  People have oodles and oodles of ideas for anti-gun/anti-war/pro-drug messages (some of which I agree with)... it's not fair for some to be the keepers of what's appropriate for people to talk about here.

Great idea.  Is this a kit or something?  Did you have to build the table? I agree that the table could use some color... I'd go red but, hey, that's my name Grin

I'm in.  Since I'm new to the area, I don't have a lot of suggestions for where to go, but I'd love to help scope out some places.  It'd give me a good chance to get my bearings in the new 'hood  Grin 

BTW, my dad grew up in Greenville.  He came to visit me about a month ago and we went to Greenville for him to reminisce.  It's an excellent town.  We visited the cemetary for obvious reasons... it's the most incredible cemetary I've seen.  I took a gazillion pics.  I didn't get much of a chance to check out the shops there (like I said, with my pops) but it was a great town and the downtown was defintely thriving.  I had no less than 3 Maidrite burgers.... I was a bit of a piggly.

I've only recently acquired the crafty bug but my husband is already a little nervous I think.  His mom is a super-talented woman who mainly works with fabric and jewelry (she used to have the best shop in our little town).  Long story short, she had collected so much fabric over the years that the sea was never-ending.  She had tried to organize it but those tupperware containers mentioned above only work if you know what's in the containers.  It was incredible for a budding crafter like myself because she was so generous with her beads, tools and fabrics (I've learned so much!) but I think it became a strain with the people around her who liked order.  She recently moved and had to purge... it took DAYS!!!!  She had a sale and was so sad afterwards because she had let go of so much for next to nothing. I think she's fine now.  She's got a nice collection of just the stuff that was most valuable/useful.   

Sorry about the longish post...  I think the moral of the story is that if you're selective about what you keep from the very beginning, it can be a lot less painful in the long run.
