1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fiber swap on: May 25, 2005 09:22:25 PM
I do ACT's and am starting to get into altered books. The problem is I but all these fiber type things to embellish with, use a little bit for a few things and am left with a bunch that I am not going to use.

If there is any body interested I was thinking maybe that we could all get 1 kind of interesting fiber material, cut it into 2 or 3 yard length and mail it to every one else in the swap. It shouldn't cost too much to mail a few feet of fiber, even to 10 people. We would all end up with a great new supply that will probably all be used instead of spending money on something we are only going to use a little bit of.

I don't have time to organize this right now, but I'd love it if some one else could!!!!! Smiley
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Total block. PLEASE help--kinda long on: May 14, 2005 11:48:04 AM
My husband got a new job in another state and we will be moving. We have been here for 5 years and I have made some very good friends. I usually am not short on ides but my mind is blank as to what to make for 3 of  the people I've grown to love.

Steph- accountant, but not your typical accountant, she loves to party. We are so much alike, but so very different. I have the artistic streak, and can't balance my checkbook, and she dresses in neutrals because she has no color sense, but we finish each others sentences. She loves football, and houseplants. The only jewelry she wears is gold so my beading won't work- any ideas?

Keyth and Donnie- I hate stereotypes, but they are the stereotypical gay couple. I love them both to death- Keyth was my first friend when we moved here. He has now finished his Master's degree and is a Librarian. Donnie is an executive chef. Both are very creative and crafty. Their gift has to be really special. I thought about a painting, but one like bright and bold, the other subdued and earth tones. 

I don't do anything with thread/yarn- sew, crochet, knit etc. but I am pretty good at everything else. I really could use all your crafter Brian power for ideas.

I have a little over a month- the going away blow out is June 25 and I want to have things done by then.

Thanks!!!!!!!!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / unintentional redecorating on: April 24, 2005 09:33:51 PM
I'm an insomniac...so i craft, or play on the computer after everyone is asleep. Tonight i spilled gold glitter, in front of the fan...glitter everywhere. Can't vacuum because I don't want to wake anytone. OK, forget the glitter, move on to something else. Get out the Beadies (very tiny beads with out holes) spill them, and in an effort to try and pick them up, forget that the lid isn't on the E6000 glue, dropped it too...stepped on it. Gave up and got on computer. Think I may be safer here. It looks like I'll be busy cleaning instead of crafting tomorrow.
