Dear Stalkee,

I have finished the toilet paper stage for your ______ and have moved on to the ______ stage!  And your ______ will be started soon, hopefully tonight - it took me forever to decide on _____ and _____ for the colors!



For my stalker,   I love tshirts!  I wear men's/unisex crewneck size M/L  (l if it runs smaller, like american apparel; M if it runs bigger, like Gildan)

Congrats!  and this is an amazing quilt...so much love and care clearly went into it!  A beautiful keepsake, for sure.

I love threadless shirts!  This is a great way to use them and have a fun and soft blanket.

Grocery stores, box stores, any larger retail store really...most of their shipment comes in cardboard boxes.  If you figure out when they put out their shipment (and therefore when they have a lot of empty boxes) they often don't mind you taking it (since it usually just goes out with trash/recycling anyway). 
25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: binding a book without folding the paper? on: February 27, 2010 07:22:29 AM
Stab binding is fairly easy and definitely works well with single pages.  One thing to know, however, is that the cover will not open flat.  I didn't realize this when I first did a stab-binding and wasn't planning for it, so the book didn't turn out precisely how I would have liked.  Good luck!
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where can I buy paper in bulk for bookmaking? on: February 27, 2010 07:20:45 AM
I second the buying art pads and cutting them down.  You can even do the cutting yourself, it is just more tedious/time consuming.  I try and wait until I have a coupon/there is a sale on sketchbooks/large art pads and then buy several and cut them up to make books.  Frequently the back of the pad is even heavy enough board to use as book board (or for other crafts).
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: RAWR! Bear and Dinosaur hats! on: February 24, 2010 02:51:50 PM
I love the dinosaur hat!  purple and yellow would eb a bit loud for me, but would definitely make good dino colors!

I have a list of ideas for my partner and got the _______ for the __________ yesterday.  Still have to get the toilet paper to actually make it!

and on to questions...

feel about book pages being used in the name of crafting?  sure!

How do you all feel about repurposed materials in crafting, and what is your threshold of "gross" or "ugly"?  I lvoe the idea of repurposed materials.  as long as it is clean, I'm good!

magnets? definitely!

skirt length?  you are clearly not my partner, as I have said many times that I don't wear skirts! 1 down, a zillion to go...

tea or coffee? both!  I love coffee (especially vanilla).  I also really like chai teas and rooibos.

fused glass?  yes! I don't wear jewelry, but other pieces would be great!

genre of books?  I like non-fiction...psychology/sociology/women studies/gender studies and the like.  I'm writing a senior thesis on residential treatment/psychiatric hospitals right now, so that's mostly what I've been reading.  I also really like Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game universe) and Robert Jordan (Wheel of Time series)

not want/need? jewelry, skirts, neon colored things

crochetd item ok? absolutely!

stuffing an item you receive to save postage?  I don't mind at all.

wallet? I just got a really nice one, so no thanks!
