301  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Jean Seberg & Franz Kafka t-shirts on: August 25, 2005 12:57:22 PM
I like Franz (and Jean, too!) The Kafka one reminds me of Monty Python's international philosophers' tournament soccer game (Greeks vs. Germans!)
302  EUROPE / GERMANY / Schultten on: August 02, 2005 06:38:29 AM
My daughter will be starting school here in the U.S. this fall, and I thought it would be fun to make her a Schultte. Are there any particular things that are always put in them? Any creative ideas for making one?
303  EUROPE / GERMANY / Re: Questions About Germany on: August 02, 2005 06:36:23 AM
It's been 4 years since I lived in Germany, but here are a few things we couldn't get readily that she might miss from the U.S.:

- Ranch dressing (mix packets are good)
- Good tortilla chips + salsa, Mexican specialties in general
- Chocolate chips for baking cookies

A useful thing you could include if she likes to cook or bake is a cookbook with typical American recipes and a set of US measuring spoons and cups. (Believe me, trying to convert those recipes to metric is a pain.) It's fun to make stuff from "back home" for European friends. They were mystified by my jello mold...(which I don't even eat when in the U.S., by the way!)

Another idea - if she has a favorite craft, buy her a set of supplies. Chances are that they will be more expensive in Europe.

That explains it. I'm down with glue sticks.
305  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Anime fans - Samurai Champloo swap? on: July 19, 2005 10:01:00 AM
I'm about to do my first swap in August, but if no one else in interested, maybe we can think of a more general anime theme and just pick SC for our crafts?

I did! I qualify as of July 16, I think. Was wondering the same thing - do we have enough people?

MMan, I wish I knew where to find some of those stack/mini-stack things, they seem pretty awesome.

I think those are small sheets of scrapbooking paper? Scrapbooking paper is really useful. You can easily get large mixed packs at stores like Target. I've been using it with cardboard to make Japanese stab-bound photo albums. I use it for the cover and end papers.

 Grin You used the right words! Definitely eat at Lido when you go; it's the best. The Lithuanian delicacy I like best is krupnikas - the friend I mentioned makes his own. Hey, if you know a recipe for it, post it in the recipe section!

Hey Offkeybandit-
Speaking as a mother here: don't worry, it's better for you to stay safe!

I like that method, Avizzius. You could even make a flap and some kind of closure. I think I will try this for a CD I made my sister.

PS I am Latvian and my best Latvian friend is married to a Lithuanian. Wink
