1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Cheapskates, anyone? on: November 10, 2005 07:52:57 PM
I have no idea where this question really belongs, so sorry if this isn't the appropriate area.

Does anyone know what happened to Cheapskates? It was a great Web site that had a ton of ideas for living cheaply by doing things yourself. I remember there were a bunch of things on there for setting up your apartment, and now that I'm moving into my first apartment by myself, it seems that the site is gone. I feel like someone put up a link somewhere to another address for it, but maybe that was just wishful thinking.

The old address: http://www.speakeasy.org/~traceyb/thrift/CS.html

Thanks a bunch!

P.S.: If anyone happens to know any other sites that are like this, I'd love to see those, too.

The Box Doodle Project

I just saw this on Drawn! and I know there are some people on here who could totally rock this challenge. I wish I weren't so busy, or I'd participate. I just moved, so I have a ton of boxes everywhere.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A couple of aprons on: August 29, 2005 09:27:56 AM
I finally got around to participating in Tie One On. This month's theme was "Mini Me"one apron for yourself and one apron for someone smaller than yourself. The only "person" I know that's smaller than me is my cat.



I didn't use a pattern. This was my first apron, so I kept it pretty simple. It's basically just a rectangle that I gathered and attached to the waistband.

All comments/critiques welcome!
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Making glasses from beer bottles on: April 09, 2005 01:17:58 AM
I recently read an article in Readymade about how to "cut" a bottle into two halves by burning a piece of string on it. They suggested making terrariums out of the tops, but I remembered having seen glasses made out of the bottoms of beer bottles, and I'd always wanted to know how they separated the bottom from the top.

Well, now I know how to do that, but I have no idea how to make the cut edge safe to drink from. Can I sand it, or do I need to use a blow torch or some other method to melt it? I just really don't want to cut my lips or wind up swallowing bits of glass.

Here is a picture so you can get an idea:


Any suggestions are appreciated.
