1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Liquid foundation into Powder???? on: February 09, 2006 04:48:24 PM
Is there any way to turn liquid foundation into a powder, without changing the color too much?
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Recon/improving a shirt without a using sewing machine or cutting it? on: December 23, 2005 06:39:38 PM
Is there any possible way to slightly alter/reconstruct a shirt without having to cut it and without needing a sewing machine? I have some t-shirts that are a little bit too big/sloppy looking and I'd like to make them look better or more interesting, but I'd like for whatever I do to be removable(such as just removing the thread) at some point. Like, is there anything simple I can do by hand sewing or even just using safety pins? I have tons of ideas, but I don't have a sewing machine to use and I don't want to do something to a shirt that's originally ok and end up messing it up--that's why I want to try something temporary. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help needed for making a "Fake Shirt" Collar on: December 18, 2005 09:23:45 PM
     I'm looking for a pattern for or at least a picture of one of those "fake shirt" collars-- it's just a button up collar(no sleeves & not a shirt, you wear it under another shirt) that's kind of like a bib in the front and back, so it looks like you're wearing a button up shirt underneath. I was thinking that I could make one out of an old collared button down shirt, but I need a pattern or picture of one to help me out. If any of yall have this please post! Thanks & Merry CHristmas!  Cheesy
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Pictures of pretty,ornate, larger beads??? on: November 24, 2005 10:19:39 AM
    I am currently in the process of painting some plain, large wooden beads to use on a necklace. I want to paint pretty and ornate designs on them, but I want them to be monotone. Do any of yall have pictures of beads such as this or know of websites where I could find some? I need some inspiration.
Thanks!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Clever and Cheap gift ideas focusing on 18th birthday? on: September 20, 2005 07:44:49 PM
     My best friend is turning 18 pretty soon and I need some good ideas for a present that is cheap, clever, and focuses on the fact that she's turning 18(and, if you've seen the other topic I posted, I want to also give her something with Jim Morrison, but that's another topic). I'll probably give her a bunch of little things, instead of one big gift. On other posts, I've seen suggestions such as candy cigarettes and fake tattoos, which I'll probably give her. Any other little things like this that I could give her?
       (and, if it helps, I live in the state of Georgia in USA, so 18 year olds can't drink here. And, I don't want to promote gambling, so I will not give her lottery tickets.)
   Please share any ideas. Thanks!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Any gift ideas using Jim Morrison/The Doors for a girl turning 18? on: September 17, 2005 03:51:15 PM
   My best friend's birthday is coming up in the beginning of Oct. and I'd like to make her something with Jim Morrison/The Doors on it. I don't want to make or stencil her a shirt or any type of clothing.  Maybe something like non-tacky jewelry, something for her car(like a rearview mirror hanging thing), something to put in her room, a unique bookmark(she loves reading), or anything else you can think of. I want it to be something nice and not tacky or cheap looking, and nothing that requires sewing.
      Please post any ideas you have. Thanks!
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Mixing SUNLESS TANNER with something else so it will not be as dark? on: September 11, 2005 09:32:20 AM
I want to use a sunless tanner on my face, but I want to tone it down so it will not be as dark. I know that you can mix it with lotion, but if I do that it makes my face too oily. Does anyone know if sunless tanner can be mixed with water or anything else that will not cause it to be streaky or blotchy or anything?
    Please respond soon if you have any ideas (I'm planning on putting some on tonight)! Thanks!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I need help with my felt flower brooch on: September 04, 2005 06:04:16 PM
    Well, I have just finished making a felt flower brooch, by following this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=33276.0 (I believe it was this one, if not it was one almost just like it) 
 Anyways, I was quite pleased with the result, until I glued a pin back onto it. I used hot glue to glue the pin back onto it. The problem is that it seems to poke out to far when I pin it on my shirt. I'd like it to lay flat against my shirt, but it seems that the combination of the thickness of the flower and the pin back prevents it from laying flat.
  Have any of y'all had the same problem? And, is there any way to fix this? I'm not sure if most flower pins lay the way mine does, and I don't want it to look tacky and badly homemade.
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Homemade Mattifying gel/lotion/whatever for Oily Skin??? on: September 02, 2005 07:21:26 PM
            Does anyone have a recipe for or know of anything that can be used as a mattifyer for oily skin? I've bought a couple of different kinds, but they didn't seem to work as well as I wanted. My skin gets really oily, and once it gets oily, my pores are more visible, which I hate. Any ideas would be great, I know I've seen some that have salicylic acid in them, which seems like a good idea, but they cost like $35(and that's way too much for me to pay).
         Or,  any suggestions for a store bought kind that actually works and is inexpensive?
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Easy, inexpensive crafts for 4, 5, & 6 years old kids? on: August 28, 2005 11:56:14 AM
    Well, I work at an after-school program and have a "class" or group of about 18 kids who are mostly 5 years old, but some 4 and 6 years old. I am trying to come up with some kind of art project or something that they will enjoy, but will not be too messy or difficult(as in, they can do it own their own, and will not need too much of my help). It also needs to not take too long and only require basic materials like paper, markers, scissors(but nothing that requires too much cutting), glue, paper plates, yarn, etc. The project also needs to not require too much preparation on my part. I've thought about projects like making masks using paper plates, but I need other ideas. I've searched on here for ideas, but almost everything I've seen doesn't really fit all of things I'm looking for.  Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks!   Cheesy
