11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / $1 store plate racks... on: October 30, 2005 12:50:55 PM
I collect hats, and I've had mine in boxes for over a year, because I had no way to display them. I picked up a plate rack at the $1 store for some plates I wanted to hang up, but it didn't fit, so I got a vertical one and had this horizontal one left over. I thought I would try to hang my hats on it, and it worked! I went back and got a million more, and put them everywhere I had room!
Here's some with my hats on it:

Here's one I put on my fabric cart, there's another one on the other side:


Here's what the empty rack looks like:
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / eye-catching stationery ( kinda gross looking) on: October 29, 2005 09:43:23 PM
I was inspired by all this rasterbation stuff I was seeing. First, I enlarged a picture from a book and ran it through the laminator at work. Then, I cut it into 6 pieces and stuck them down on a piece of black cardstock, leaving a 1/8" boarder around each piece. Then, I just made copies of that and glued it to blank cards I made out of scrap paper that is a little thinner than posterboard. Ta-dah! New stationery! Free new stationery!

13  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!
14  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:


15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / (maybe) free materials on: August 20, 2005 12:57:15 PM
I work at an advertising agency, and I take home tons of scrap cardstock and paper that I have to trim off of bigger sheets. They throw away pretty much everything thinner than 12 or so inches wide. I thought maybe people could ask at their local agencies or even at printing companies for their scraps. I'm not sure they will give them to you, but it couldn't hurt to ask! Also, the art directors are always throwing away books that have tons of pictures in them. I think they're samples of images they can download from companies on-line. Anyway, some of the images are really cool. I hope this information  is of use to someone!
16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / quilt pieces on: June 14, 2005 01:23:41 PM
I didn't see anything like this already posted, but I kind of just skimmed over the titles. When my friend and her girlfriend announced their commitment ceremony a few years ago, I immediately phoned her sister and got the names and numbers of everyone who knew them. She and I contacted everyone on the list and asked them to send me a 12" by 12" piece of fabric (with a 1" seam allowance), decorated for them. I gave a cut-off date of 1 month before the ceremony to give me time to make it into a quilt. One person transferred a picture of them and a few words about wishing them happiness and everything, I embroidered their initials intertwined on a piece that was in the colors of the ceremony, her mom painted a picture on one... you get the picture. It was supposed to be a cherished keepsake of their love and all of their friend's love for them, but hardly anyone returned the pieces and I finally just gave her the ones that I had and told her about what we had wanted to do. She thought the gesture was nice and I still think it's a good idea, maybe if you plan it better...or it could be a nice thing to have people do at the reception. Have all of the supplies at the tables and have everyone make a quilt piece for the couple. You would have to only invite crafty people to your wedding, though...
