2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Any Suggestions or Hints? on: February 02, 2009 12:17:07 PM
Hey All.. I am doing my first ever counted cross stitch as a present for my sister as a bday present.  I think I'm going blind with it.  Any suggestions to make things easier?  So far i've only had to fix one thing but admittedly i'm a wee bit nervous about the whole thing. It's not a big piece but lots of colour changes..  Thank you ahead of time for any help you can kick my way.. cheers..
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Thrift Store Crafters!! on: February 01, 2009 02:03:37 AM
I love thrift stores. Admittedly, prolly a little too much. My best gf & i say it's all about the hunt for us. Today, i found an embroidery kit(unopened) with a saying about sisters($2), a rug hooking kit (also unopened)for my youngest ($4), a brand new white ink pad(.49) and a container of scrapbooking glitter(.49).  Now i am curious if we have any other thrift store crafters in here?
I am always finding yarn & material. I know some ppl  buy the supplies with great intentions and don't get around to it.  The one bad side of this is i am finding so many good buys that i'm running out of storage space.. i need to do a huge stash bust!! Grin
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine's Day Gifts? Is this unusual? on: January 30, 2009 03:19:45 AM
A friend the other day was a little surprised(stunned) that i give my daughters' presents for Valentine's Day.  It's always a little something usually homemade or dollar store items.  I also do halloween presents for them.. since that is our favourite time of the year. They do little things for their dad & me as well.  I didn't think it was a strange thing to do but i have to admit that i am now wondering if it's time to end this little tradition since my babies aren't little anymore. They are 19 & 13.  What do you all think? Is it time for this mummy to stop?  Undecided

i'm just curious as most of us took part in this challenge but do you prefer store bought decorations or home made? my haunt is about 60% home made and 40% store bought but i love and appreciate the home made stuff much more.. what is everyone's thoughts on this??

7  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / 2008's Crafty Spooky Addition on: September 20, 2008 01:29:41 AM
Every year, my family creates something new for our halloween display. The #1 rule is it can't be cutesy.  So we hunt around for something creepy to create.  Husband is a total freak on this holiday!! Tomorrow we are starting giant paper mache mutant pumpkins... we found them on a haunt site.. they are fabulous!! Wish us luck... apparently we will be making at least 10 of these.. Roll Eyes

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Baby Sweaters!! on: April 17, 2007 03:18:32 AM
lately, I've been swamped with babies Undecided.. in one week, 3 babies & another one on the way. I have to admit I'm an impatient knitter or i just get bored super fast. So, i found what has to be the easiest baby sweater known to knitters. The 5 rectangle baby sweater. Apparently, it was on Carol Duval. OMG.. quick easy and you can fiddle with it to make it your own. I lucked by finding a huge bag of softie baby in white at some store for $5 so now i am whipping these things up. http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_needlework_knitting/article/0,1789,HGTV_3263_3298694,00.html
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / So I Gave It a Go!! on: April 17, 2007 02:23:06 AM
well, i took advantage of the fabulous sale at Michael's on t-shirts this week and bought the family all the tee's that they could possibly need. Only one problem, they all wanted black ones. 
As they are all a bit on the odd side (i'm the mommy i can say that Grin), i finally did some stencilling. Nothing too out there for my first time, skulls & crossbones & the word beware.  Unfortunately, my camera is having a temper tantrum so i can't take pics.  I put the stencilling on the back about halfway down and i do have to say they look rather fabulous. At least the teens in this house say they will wear them.. a good sign Grin
