1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / best sealant for scrapbook paper glued to wooden table on: August 31, 2012 10:37:17 AM
I recently completed a project where I took a book of scrapbook paper and mod-podged it, underneath and on top, but I want to seal it with something that will make it waterproof and potentially even smooth over textures created where the edges of the papers are. (this is instead of purchasing a piece of plexiglass cut to size, which was my original idea but way more expensive than I can afford.)

any ideas? Smiley

Have you looked for the sewing machine instructs online? Bet somebody has them posted.

I have searched pretty extensively. It's a Kenmore 158 13520, and the manuals are $10 and up. Boo.

I'm pretty new to sewing and I've made a couple of pillows and sewn sheets together to make a larger sheet, etc, but I'm still not sure what's the best stitch for hand sewing. (I just bought a sewing machine but can't afford to buy the manual quite yet, so stuck with hand sewing still!) The project I'm about to start is a lined infinity scarf. (Exactly like this: http://sweet-verbena.blogspot.com/2011/10/single-loop-lace-infinity-scarf.html) I also need to know what's the best stitch for pillows and clothes (I plan on making simple skirts and dresses). Any tips on this?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / what type of paint should I use on lightbulbs? on: July 14, 2012 03:08:01 PM
I went to an art show in DC a few weekends ago and one exhibit had lamps whose light bulbs were painted with rainbow dots which gave a really cool feel to the whole room... I want to do this for my room in my apartment but I'm not sure what kind of paint is the safest to use. any insight for this?

hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone has some ideas or links for what I can do with a string of blue christmas lights! moving into a new place in a few weeks and I've been spending all of my time crafting and working on interior decorating projects, and I really want a cute, original string of lights over my bed in place of a lamp. anyone have any good ideas?
