1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / teeny brain slug on: October 24, 2008 06:39:24 AM
inspired by the various other craftsters who've made brain slugs, i decided to make my own! for the uninitiated, brain slugs are from futurama, and they feed on your brain waves. let's all go to the brain slug planet and walk around without helmets on! i also based the body of pepperkitty's octopus, and he turned out so tiny! poor little guy is pretty malnourished from sitting on my head. or perhaps i should've just used bulkier wool and a bigger hook. who knows?

he's a christmas present for my dad, and since he turned out so wee i'm now on the hunt for a suitably themed mug to pop him into. daddy dearest is a major tea drinker, so i think he'd appreciate it. and he has to like the brain slug, because he is bound to like all crappy things i make him. he still uses the van gogh sunflower paperweight i made him when i was 4, even though it does look like a dirty fried egg.

i used patons faiytale colour 4 me yarn, and a 0.4mm hook. thanks for looking!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / How To Package Cookies For College Friends? on: December 03, 2007 09:39:19 AM
there are lots of people at college that i don't know quite well enough to give a gift, but would love to give a little mix of home-baked goodies. my only problem is how to package them. it can't be too time-consuming, expensive, or even fancy: just something simple and effective.

i'm in the UK if that's any help; i thought little brown paper bags would be nice but i have no idea where to buy such a thing.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / polkadot briefs shirt on: June 26, 2006 03:48:47 PM
i'm stoked about this shirt. i'm so stoked that i'm putting this on craftster when it's not even dry yet  Cheesy so... stencil of the logo for the band the briefs, on an old reconned shirt. stencil's from stencil punks. it's pretty plain, but this is my third stencil and i thought any more would be to much, what with the polkadots and all that Tongue

oh yeah. work that bad photography. crappy camera flashes are so punk rock.

booo being in the UK where no good american punk or ska bands ever play.

THE AFTERMATH. CARNAGE. HORROR.
/end experience.

ohyeah. any idea of what to put over the U? my parents reckon i'd get arrested so they want me to cover it up. good as is? not?
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / dressing up pigtails? on: May 02, 2006 02:27:52 PM
i wear my hair in two pigtails pretty much all the time. it suits me. i usually wear them quite high with my side fringe over my forehead. i'd like to wear it like this to go out, too, but it doesn't seem dressy enough. any ideas?
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / my first stencil: tim armstrong on: January 15, 2006 11:47:41 AM
I've wanted to try stencilling for a while, and I finally got round to it tonight. There's a few messed up lines and bits of paint, but they're barely noticeable and I'm pretty proud Smiley sorry for my awful photography, I guess that's what I should try and learn to do next...




Excuse how er... comatose I look, I've been doing coursework all day and this was my break  Grin I finally have a Rancid tank to add to my wardrobe. Pshh buying merch Tongue I got the stencil from http://stencilpunx.mattrunningnaked.com/
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Shaving Steps Into Your Hair? on: November 24, 2005 10:25:22 AM
I really want steps in my hair, just above my ears, and my friend says she'll do them for me. But what do you actually do? I'm stupid when it comes to hair.

Thankyoo!
7  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Where to buy freezer paper? on: October 11, 2005 02:06:25 PM
Having seen the freezer paper stencil tutorials I really want to try it, since my stencil skills are, well, minimal. But I have no idea where to get freezer paper. Do we call it a different name? Nobody I asked has ever heard of it.
8  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Piercing place in the North West! on: August 09, 2005 01:50:08 PM
Hey Smiley I had trouble finding somewhere to go for my latest piercing, so I thought I'd post up a recommendation in case anyone else has had this problem!

www.bodz.info Bods are in Liverpool town centre and they're absolutely brilliant. I 100% recommend them! They made an excellent job of my rook, and after going there I wouldn't go anywhere else  Cheesy

Okay, lovestruck rant over. I'm just so pleased that I've found such a great place!

Hope this helps someone Smiley
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Earlobe Stretching on: July 10, 2005 01:18:33 PM
So, I got my lip pierced a month ago, and I'm getting the itch for more. Piercings are truly addictive!

What I've always wanted is to stretch my lobes. I've been advised not to by friends who say it wouldn't shrink, but I wouldn't want a very big stretch.

I do not know a thing about this process. What do all the different gauges mean? How do they do it? Am I best going to a professional piercer?

That brings my question round to who. There is a very friendly tattoo place where I got my nose pierced. They were great for advice and the like, but they pierced my nose with a gun. So I'm thinking they're not experts. I got my ears pierced at Claire's (CRAP) and my lip at a good place which was quite intimidating and not easy to get advice out of. Should I seek a new piercer?

Ooh! Sudden thought. Should I get my ears repierced with a larger gauge needle, since I had them done with crappy guns? I don't know much about piercing but I do know that guns are bad news.

Sorry about all the questions, but this is the only place I can think to ask and get good advice from  Smiley Thankyou very much!
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Healing Piercings Faster? (lip piercing) on: June 02, 2005 09:30:27 AM
Yesterday I finally got my lip pierced. I am delighted. But having had some bad experience healing my nose stud, I wondered whether anyone had any wisdom to share? FYI, I'm cleaning it a few times a day with saltwater.

Thanks  Smiley
