11  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:

12  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!
13  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...
