1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: 05/11/10 - We have 200,000 members! on: May 12, 2010 02:49:31 PM
Think of all the other craft boards we outlasted... the old Nervousness.org was one of my favorites, but it's just not the same now.  Craftster is still awesome and still going strong! Kiss
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advanced beginner online block of the month starting in jan 2010?? on: January 01, 2010 01:55:30 AM
I've been googling for some sewing projects and ran across this free quilt BOM listing if it helps any...
http://www.bomquilts.com/
Here's another freebie that's kind of a game on top of a BOM deal: http://www.quiltblockdash.com/
You might want to try searching as well - looks like there's a bunch of free and cheap BOMs floating around.  Cheesy

Oh, neat!  These are really cool as ornaments.  I say you deserve a double word score Grin

Awesome job!  Who knew a bridesmaid dress could have a new life as a parasol??  And as always, you two are hilarious.  My neighbors give me weird looks when I dig holes to plant things in our yard - I can't imagine what they'd do if they saw my husband wandering around with a swell umbrelly like that Wink  Although one guy down the street made the news for mowing his lawn while wearing nothing but a spiked dog collar last summer...

WOW!  Great job.  It looks so awesome on you, too.  The collar looks really neat, btw.
7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Cool Wine Bottle? on: December 04, 2006 10:52:10 PM
Okay, because I'm notorious for cutting off parts of my fingers when I mess with sharp things, I'm going to suggest something totally different.  Sterilize the bottle, fill it with garlic/herbs and olive oil, then put one of those metal or plastic pourers (that you see on liquor bottles at the bar).  I found some generic plastic ones in a 3-pack for less than $6 and they fit down the neck nice and tightly... which means no leaks!  Classy, useful present on the cheap that works just the same as the ones at Italian restaurants.

Here's a tutorial from DIY network:

Here's a useful link to things you can and can't put in there with oil:

8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: tons of cat food cans!! on: December 04, 2006 10:41:59 PM
eeeeeeeeep!  Is that a snowshoe siamese?  He looks like my kitties when they were little.  They're seal point meezers.

I would say peel the labels off and either:  1) punch a design around the side (with a hammer and a sharp nail) so you can put a tea candle in and light will come through or 2) paint the sides and make it a candle container.  They would make neat DIY presents.  Rinse them out with hot soapy water first, of course.  Otherwise you'll have burning catfood smell.  My mother-in-law is obsessed with saving cans to put citronella candles in for outdoor gatherings, so I can't help but think "stuff with wax, set on fire" when I see an empty tin can Wink
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Serger Seams on: November 29, 2006 12:48:43 PM
I'm learning how to use my serger too.  It's been hard, but I found this video on YouTube of this girl demonstrating some basics... it might not fix the problem, but I thought it couldn't hurt to share just incase.

Good luck with your Kenmore and please post any tips you come up with for us serger newbies Smiley
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Pirate, yes... guy/girl? on: November 07, 2006 12:02:25 PM
Ahhh!  No way... I woulda been evil and snapped a picture of her sleeping in the beard.  We did that to my uncle when he dressed up as a party pirate for his daughter's wedding reception and afterwards fell asleep in a chair with the cap, eye patch and a parrot balloon tied to his shoulder.  Blackmail material, ya know Wink
