1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: "i'm huge so i cover my whole body" sweatshirt, to PRETTY TOP (w/pattern) on: February 20, 2008 10:12:05 AM
hey camilaustral, great shirt. I like the shape and color and it looks like it fits you great, so apparently you did a good job drawing out the pattern to 'real life size' eh? Smiley

thanks for the link, interesting site, is utilisima a tv program?
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: cooking in dorm room on: February 16, 2008 03:12:17 AM
hey hey hey! another poor veggie college student represent! Smiley

okay, well...mostly veggie. is that the same as sort of pregnant? Wink probably, I'm in the space between denial, aspiration, and profound love for my school's amazing free range turkey jurkey. geez - those jerks could at least make it non organic and caged, right?

anyways, things I do:
our school has a mandatory meal plan, which sucks majorly becuase it's a. expensive, and b. the food isn't very good even if you're not a vegeterian/vegan, but if you are (or trying to be), your choices are basically either dry cereal/granola or the pitiful wilted lettuce that passes for salad bar (if you want to eat somewhat healthy), and fries if you don't, or don't mind the animal fats.

however, that said - our cafeteria chooses to decorate with vegetables. yes kids, you've read right. we don't EAT the veggies, we DECORATE with them. So I make it a point to grab some of the decor on my way out each time. Sometimes it works out great (bell peppers, brocolli), sometimes not so great (think eggplant, ginger root), and at times it's somewhat awkward (think cucomber, carrot). Being a college studet with the requisite dirty mind, I make the best of the situation and grab two of the offending vegetables if the situation presents itself. Two cucombers are less sensual than one, am I right?

good luck. I guess that's my input as far as using the money you already paid the school and you'd assume would be going towards paying for your food. Basically, my tip is to go walk around and pocket as much free condiments/etc you can get away with. I tend to go for the individual packs of sunflower seeds, salad dressings, vegetables (see above), fruit (same as vegetables), and whatever else is laying within pocketable reach. oh, and invest in some plastic ziplock bags (or gladware or something). I eat a lot of cereal, so hey, if I'm walking out with an eggplant, why not granola too?
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: State School and Big Buildings (6 pics) on: November 14, 2007 09:32:33 PM
fluffybaka - I just had to chime in too - that last picture is amazing, I know what you mean about no special photography skills, I don't have any either, but that last picture is art. The description under the stone tablet thing, the creepiness of it, everything you imagine (because your pictures aren't very scary Smiley  - all that scary, depressing, horrible stuff that must have occured there - that last picture hints at it so well. I don't know, it's seriously good.
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Pretty cupcakes on: November 03, 2007 12:30:56 PM
wow - so I clicked on the picture from the forum index, and I read "I used rubbing alchohol..." and I think WHAT?! You can't eat rubbing alchohol! What have they done!

Smiley
they look very realistic.
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Help! I screwed up my costume! on: October 29, 2007 12:37:31 AM
haha, I'm sorry, the first thing that made me reply was your ardent desire to not be a 80's aerobics muse.
sorry that in of itself wasn't much help!

hm. muses bring to mind artfully draped ivy and little gold leaves, ala olympic crowns.
maybe you could find some of those fake plastic ivy garlands (not wreaths, the long rope-y like bunches of ivy) and somehow drape that around your neckline and down the dress, pinning/sewing/hot gluing the neckline to the leaves?

or maybe try pleats?
best of luck!
that dress looks really cool actually, if you manage to fix the neckline ivy-leaves-less, I'd vote for wearing it on days other than just Oct 31st!

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "I wanna grow old with you..." Crafted proposal... on: August 26, 2007 02:26:11 PM
weeping_cloud - that's so nice and geniune and awww....I'm seriously touched for the two of you. Smiley

 idiosyncracy - no, it's not weird at all. in fact I really like how you're combinening something emotional and touchy with depends! I think the humor will be good for making it not as potentially awkward. but hurray for you too! Smiley

good luck, you'll have to keep us posted on the turn events take.
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: leather bookmark wedding favors? on: August 26, 2007 02:19:22 PM
what about burning whatever text/designs you want on there? I realize it's not going to be very quick (and if you have a lot to make than maybe it's way too much work), but it'd be quicker than tooling it on the leather.

I think you might be able to use the wood burning pen (sorry, I don't know what the official name of it is). they have them fairly cheap at most craft stores or you could go to kmart/wallmart for even cheaper...
