I did the evil girl scout thing at work today, and some guy who dressed up like Luigi from Mario Bros. beat me for the prize ($110). I even had cookies with fake fingers and fake blood in them! Damn Luigi...
804  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: Show me your craft "room"!! on: October 28, 2005 11:24:28 PM
I got so excited when I first saw this thread, I'm so proud of finally having a WHOLE ROOM devoted to crafting that I want to show it off, too! I started taking pictures of my craft room, but then decided it's too messy to show. Maybe I'll get it organized this weekend...

That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard! We are such a throwaway society!
I don't know what I plan to do with my binding machine. I just wanted it so I can punch holes in paper so I can make journals, but then I got the spines for it, too. Maybe I'll start a zine. I've always wanted to have a magazine that had REAL affordable clothing in it, like for someone who makes $7.00 an hour and can't spend $50 on a sweater. Or even $20. I don't know how or where I would distribute it, though. That, or I've always wanted to make a pamphlet or booklet or something to hand out to homeless people about edible plants. I have a feeling that the majority of the homeless in Chicago could care less about finding food. I offered this one guy who's always asking for money for a sandwich a whole personal pizza that I happened to have that was leftover from an office party, and he looked at me like I was offering to slit his throat or something, then he just ignored me and moved on to the next person with his sob story. But that's off subject... Why ya askin'? Got any ideas????

That is so awesome! I think I might try to use a couple of your ideas to help organize my craft room. I have all of my knitting needles in an old tomato sauce can, and my crochet needles in an old utensil organizer that my boyfriend was going to throw out. I hope your husband likes his new job and I hope he has access to some other good stuff for you with his new one!

Shoot, thingwraith... You never know unless you try. My boyfriend gets crap all of the time from work, and he works for the school district, and I guess that stuff is state property. They would have just thrown it out, otherwise.

I scored an old binding machine with 2 shoppong bags full of spines for it from work yesterday. It was a pain to shlep it on the train and the bus, but it was so worth it! With that, and finally learning how to download pictures on the computer, I'm in heaven...
809  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Journal from work scraps on: October 28, 2005 08:30:44 PM
I made this journal for my sister mainly from stuff we usually throw away at work. The paper on the outside is some scrapbook paper that my mom didn't want, and the dental floss and rubber cement is my own. I read on here (I don't remember who wrote it, though) that someone used dental floss to bind the pages together, so I tried it, and it worked quite nicely. I put some rubber cement along the spine, closed it, put some clips on it to hold the pages together, propped it up against something, and let it dry. The pages are made up of scraps that had been trimmed off of bigger pages, and the cardstock for the front and back covers and spine was too small for us to use, and would have normally been trashed.
Here is the outside:

My sister's name is Gina, so I made a "G" out of copper wire and used rubber cement to glue it down.
Here is the inside:

I had leftover scrapbook paper, so I made a bookmark to go in it, with a holder.
Thanks for looking!
810  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cat Bed on: October 28, 2005 08:05:52 PM
This is my first time trying to post with a picture, so forgive me if it doesn't show up. It's a bed I made for my cat, Sasha, because I kept kicking her when I was asleep. I made it with some fabric I've had for several years and had never used. I stuffed it with batting and mismatched socks that I couldn't bear to throw away.
Here's my baby, waking up from a nap:


Here's the bed, without Sasha:
