11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted and felted, but a purse! on: October 21, 2006 02:47:41 PM
This is my first knitting project, my first felting project, and my second purse project (the first was a jordy bag).  I screwed up on the handle, it's lopsided, and I'm not at all sure how much weight this baby can handle, but all in all I'd say it was a successful experiment!  I love the lining, and I'm looking forward to (hopefully) getting better at all this.  I wasn't sure whether to put this in the knitting board or the purse board, but settled on the latter (obviously).

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Book binding with single pages--newbie needs help on: May 13, 2005 05:07:03 PM
I want to ask this question before I actually get started on  making my book, so I can hopefully troubleshoot before screwing too much up. . .  Cheesy

I'm planning on making a scrapbook, and I'd like to bind it so it looks nice.  However, the way I'm doing it, I won't be folding the pages in half to make sections (there won't be many pages to begin with--it's my first scrapbook, I don't want to get too ambitious).  Will this make any difference when I go to do the coptic stitch?  Or is there a better way to bind books if you're not folding the pages in half? 

I am literally clueless, and I've looked around Google and Craftster, so I'd appreciate any tips for a newbie bookbinder!  Thanks!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Decorating a room by displaying my mint collection--ideas? on: January 13, 2005 05:38:39 PM
I have a pretty big mint collection (pictured below) that's just kinda sitting in my room taking up space.  Lots of foreign mints and tic tacs, many mint tins.  Here's a pic that shows part of the mint collection--the clear container and the grey one behind it are full of mints, as well as some other containers not pictured.  Just so you can get an idea of the size.

So, here's my question.  I want to do something with these, maybe display them in a way that I could decorate my room as well.  I have some wooden trays that I was going to paint and put some of them on, but my painting skills are approximately nil, so they came out looking pretty bad.  Is there any way I can turn my mint collection into something decorative, maybe even useful?  Thanks so much for your help!
