51  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: What's the strangest thing/packaging you've sent throught the post office? on: November 18, 2004 10:08:41 PM
My old building was geared towards artists & one of the shows we hosted in our galleries was a mail art show...they would put anything in the show that was mailed to them. Sadly, most of the pieces were typical postcards, etc. (I expected more from a bunch of artists!) But it was interesting to see people who worked in "traditional" mediums (ie. painting & sculpure) get crafty.

The first Christmas my boyfiend and I were together, he had his dad teach him to do stained glass, and spent many hours on a piece that looked like the green leaf brooch the Fellowship gets from Galadriel in LOTR (we're both members of the "Dork-core" & lovelovelove Tolkien!) We now both have the same image tattooed on our forearms...his gift to me for our 1st anniversary.

I think it just comes with the territory...if you're crafty you're gonna amass a certain amount of junk. The odds are stacked against me in this case...my mom is a pack rat who runs her own store (art&craft consignment&classes)...she knits,crochets,tats,spins yarn,does collage,beads,makes soap&paper,cross stitch,etc.  AND is an avid thrift store/rummage sale shopper....which means she has a ton of stuff (which she is aways wiiling to share (lucky for me!!!)
her mom was the same way, only more into collecting things than crafts...I think its genetic, honestly!

54  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Water-proof Beach Jewelry? on: November 18, 2004 08:42:30 PM
I had the idea a while back to make items out of plastic beads on fishing line, so you could wear them in the water and not ruin them. Also, I would have a use for all the plastic beads I accumulate & never have any use for. Then a friend-of-a-friend mentioned she had such a bad metal allergy she couldn't find any jewelry cuz everything had metal clasps. I really want to do something w/ this idea, but I've not seen plastic findings anywhere...any ideas?

I wanted an email address that was kinda geeky and obscure...but that a couple people would get. Tattoo Annie was taken on hotmail, so I spelled it ta2annie. Its from the Simpsons episode (4th Season) where Marge goes to prison...there she meets a tattooed & pierced chick with short red hair...which is a fairly accurate description of me (minus the prison jumpsuit). To top it off, my name is Anne, though my family has always called me Annie because I was named after the song "Dreamboat Annie" by Heart. It just stuck and now I sell my jewelry under the Tattoo Annie banner as well

I had some rilly ugly gold clasps...just held 'em with a tweezers over a candle for a bit..first they turned bronze & then black. I would think any paint would either flake off or gum everything up
57  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / baking soda bath bombs? on: November 15, 2004 11:48:59 PM
I need a recipe for "bath bombs"...the kind that fizz when you toss 'em in the tub. I know the main ingredients are baking soda & cocoa butter, but I don't have any more info. I want to make them for Christmas...help!
58  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Any blemish treaters/skin smoothers/glow helpers? on: November 15, 2004 11:30:46 PM
the best thing I found is a blend of essential oils...tea tree, lavender & geranium. I mix equal amounts of each in a little glass bottle & dab it on blemishes, cuts, burns,bug bites, whatever. usually you need to dilute essential oils if you're using them on your skin, but these 3 are ok straight. this also works as a bug repellant & it smells nice. add it to unscented lotion or soap, too. this combo has completely cleared up my very confused/oily skin. make sure you get pure, undiluted, non-synthetic essential oils, though. any health food store should have an ok line...Aura Cacia is easy to find & inexpensive
59  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Earwax? on: November 15, 2004 11:21:09 PM
ear candling is totally harmless...I work at a day spa and we do it there, but you can do it at home if there's a second person to watch the flame. it's actually very relaxing & no pain/trauma like @ the doctor. you only have to cover your ears after if its really cold or windy out & only on the 1st day. just make sure you use candles made out of muslin&beeswax...paraffin is bad
