21  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: My Glass Work Space on: June 02, 2010 05:30:56 AM
WOW! Of course, if you can live out of the remaining 500 sqft, I'm not surprised you made 200 sqft work for a glass studio.  My studio (for sewing/quilting/everything under the sun) is only slightly more sqft, but my house is just under 3000, so I have plenty of room for everything else!  I am curious about the kiln, though, does it need to be out in the open like that?  Of course I know nothing about this, but I would have put the kiln in the closet and set up the workspace out in the room.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Oddly Linked baby blanket on: May 26, 2010 08:57:32 PM
I love it!  I am not usually a fan of crocheted things, but its mostly because of things like the holes, and how when you make stripes, the edges are kind of pixelated looking; but this is very tight and the stripes are crisp!  good job!

Wow! what a find.  I used to scour thrift shops for these looking for ones to makeover.  I always had to redo the insides because they were NASTY!  I always had to completely rip out the interior spray it with KILZ to kill the "vintage" (read: "horrific old lady's house who keeps 20 cats and even has the dead ones somewhere") smell.  New fabric and mirror and they came out looking great, but man was it a lot of work!  I like this look with the vintage ladies!
24  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: A bAbY gift people LOVE... on: May 24, 2010 11:43:02 AM
I made these for my daughter Brianna awhile back.  I was on a really tight budget and lived in a small town without a lot of wooden letter options.  I ended up printing out the letter really big off the computer (made them into outlines first to save ink) and then traced them onto poster board.  I painted both sides with a coat of white acrylic craft paint, and when it was good and dry (24+hours) I cut them out and went crazy decorating them.  I painted them with more craft paint, but you could easily cover them with scrapbooking papers, fabric, anything!   I then sprayed them with 2 coats 97 cent clear spray paint (I stuck them to a large piece of cardboard 1st) and they are really shiny!  I am about to do new ones for her room, she changed the theme and I'll probably do them the same way.  I know some of you like the thickness/dimension of the wooden letters, but the posterboard ones are so thin they almost look like they're painted directly on the wall.  They're also so light, I hung them up with rolled up pieces of masking tape on the back.  You could still do the ribbon with these, but I would also do the tape to make them hang right.  Sorry this is so long, but I just wanted people who couldn't find these wooden letters (or can't afford them) to know about an alternative option!  You also have many more font choices doing it this way!  Also, I just realized you could cut them out on a Cricut (or similar cutting tool) if you have one!  I didn't when I made the last set...hmmm....I wonder if I have a font she'd like!?

I also just do the back and forth stitching, but have also pulled the threads through to one side and tied them off for some things.  I have never had anything unravel either.  I like the colors...even though there is a little bit of pink in the fabric, its not much and the colors of the ribbons really make it more masculine.
26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Snowball quilt for my Dad on: May 23, 2010 09:47:42 PM
Love it!  The color scheme and pattern is very retro and masculine.
27  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Sunset Nails Tutorial on: May 23, 2010 09:44:23 PM
Love it, I used to do my nails with this color scheme (with a different technique) and then paint a couple of black palm trees silhouetted against the sunset. I used to get so many compliments on it!
28  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: NCIS tarot cards on: May 23, 2010 09:41:27 PM
Don't know much about tarot cards, but I adore NCIS, and based on the names of the cards, and what I know your choices could have been, I think you picked excellent pictures/characters.  I think the Ziva for Queen of Wands is a good one, too, because she is a master of weapons and a wand could be considered a weapon if you used it to assault or defend with.

looks cool.  Some opinions on the frying marbles....the technique for heating them up first and then dumping them in icy water will probably work best from a scientific point of view.  The freezing and then heating will work, but only in small areas of the marble, on the side touching the pan.  Plus, the dumping in icy water has the added benefit of somewhat trapping shards that may crack off and fly at you.  You would still want to wear eye protection while frying, however, as they could shatter in the pan.

Beautiful! As a fan of glitter AND rainbows, I want to do this to my truck....how many of those pots do you think I'd need for a Dodge Durango!?  hahahahaaa!  My husband would KILL me!  I am seriously interested in hearing how well this wears/weathers, though!
