21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Hiding Knots on: September 17, 2006 08:11:59 PM
Okay, so, here is the problem:

I am not a high-tech craftster. My craftiness is limited to making stretchy seed-bead bracelets and sometimes necklaces, with either elastic string or regular thread. I know it's very boring, but the color schemes are nice, so I'd like to think that makes up for the lack of originality/hard-ness.

Anyways. The problem is, I have no idea how to tie the thread when I am done with a bracelet/necklace so the knot does not show. I want the knot to be sturdy, so I put a dab of hot glue on it, but it is also really ugly and kind of makes the necklace less pretty, I think.

So, if anyone knows how to do an efficient but invisible knot to tie off a piece of jewelry, I would really, really appreciate it. Remember I need to tie off stretchy thread, also.

Thank you!

Hey, everyone.

I have this plain white five gallon bucket that I got for a Pioneer Trek and basically never used again. I think it would be really cool if I decorated it and used it as a trash can. But, I need your ideas on how to decorate it! Please post your suggestions.

Thanks for looking!

Hey, youse guys.

I keep seeing people make their own circle skirts, and I think it's totally hot, but I don't know how to make them, and I want to! Does anyone have a tutorial that I could use?

Thanks!
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Limited materials, no money .... ideas? on: August 15, 2005 08:55:07 PM
Hey, everyone. I have a ton of seed beads and elastic, but not very many ideas, and no money. I was hoping to use these resources to start a small business and make some cash off of it. Does anyone have any ideas for me? I thought maybe I could make bracelets, but I'm not sure. Please help!

Thanks for looking!
25  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Tons o' beads and elastic --- no money --- solution? on: August 15, 2005 08:48:43 PM
Hey! I have tons of beads and elastic from a project I was working on earlier. I was just wondering, using only the supplies I have, does anyone have any idea what I could make and sell to my friends to make some cash?
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / DIY Back to School clothes on: July 19, 2005 09:45:23 AM
I need help!  I don't have a lot of money to spend this year on back-to-school clothes, so I was wondering if I could reconstruct some of my old clothes in a new way! Here is the situation:

My school's dress code is: no navel baring outfits, no tanktops/strapless tops, no short shorts or skirts, no low cut shirts in front or back.

I can't really sew. At all. I prefer the cutt'n 'n' ty'n technique.

So. Please help?
27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Dancer in a Box? on: July 08, 2005 10:35:08 AM
My friend is turning fifteen in a few weeks, and I want to get a leg up on her birthday present this year. She's an avid dancer, her favorite color is purple, and she's kind of a fashionista, too. Any ideas?
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / HELP! I need a way to make money! on: July 01, 2005 01:58:31 PM
Hey, everyone.

Okay, here is the situation: I need a way to make money. I'm only 14. My town is fairly small, so there's no where I could get a job. I thought that I could make cheap, easy, but funky crafts and sell them to my friends.

I can't sew. At all. I like making jewelry.

Please help?
