11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Fiance in the Air Force... on: May 13, 2008 06:40:05 PM
My fiance is in the AF and he's in tech school in TX right now. (I'm in FL, BTW.)

I want to send him a little something every week...I'm stuck for ideas and it's only the second week! I sent him some homemade caramels & a picture last week and I'm sending him a new t-shirt (he JUST got to where he can wear civilian clothes again!) this week.

What can I send him? I'd prefer to make it (I sew but I can make almost anything  Wink) He can have almost anything but he CANNOT have sexy pics or anything like that. He is really proud to be in the AF, he loves Warcraft (and computers in general, he's getting a laptop for his dorm soon.) He also likes Star Wars and junk food. (I don't think he'd want anything with Warcraft or Star Wars plastered on it, though.) He can buy just about anything he needs on base but I just like to send stuff, it makes me feel all wifey.   Cheesy
12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Photographing larger bags on: April 02, 2008 01:50:44 PM
How do you photograph larger bags?!

I made some mini-totes (which are still pretty good sized bags) and I am having the HARDEST time getting good photographs of them! I don't have a lightbox or room to make one so I use natural light for my photos.
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Making journals from food boxes on: January 23, 2008 12:42:01 PM
I've seen some journals in which the covers were made from things like cereal or granola bar boxes. I found this stitching tutorial ( http://www.sff.net/people/Brook.West/bind/bindit.html ) which looks simple enough but...would one of these boxes be thick enough for a cover? If not, what would I re-enforce it with?

If anyone has a tute, I'd love to see it!
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Silk help on: October 02, 2007 08:56:37 AM
I'm making some wristlets for a wedding and the fabric the bride picked out is turquoise silk. She asked me what kind of fabric she should get for the lining (black) so that it doesn't show through the turquoise...I'm at a loss! What kind of fabric should she get?

Also, can you use interfacing on silk? I'm guessing you can't so I'm gonna have to interface the lining, right?

Thanks in advance.   Cheesy
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Fabric + resin? on: September 24, 2007 01:31:16 PM
I know there is a thread all about resin but after looking through the first few pages, my head hurt.  Tongue

I have a lot of little fabric scraps and I was wondering if it was possible to turn them into resin pendants? I found some molds on Dick Blick but if it is possible, what kind of resin should I use? If you have any other resin tips or tricks hook me up.  Wink
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Fabric Coaster Help on: August 24, 2007 11:26:43 AM
I want to make some fabric coasters and I found some tutes but I'm a bit confused. One of the tutes said to interface the fabric. I use interfacing in my bags and I'm afraid that water may ruin the interfacing (or rather the effect that interfacing has on fabric). I've also seen a tute that said to use thin batting. Call me stupid but what is batting? Like quilt batting?

I thought about trying some iron on vinyl and maybe putting it on a layer of cotton to go in between the two layers of outside fabric. Or just putting a layer or two of cotton in the middle (or a lyer of some quilted fabric that I have). I'm really not sure though...help a girl out?
17  COOKING / Dessert / In honor of Elvis... on: August 12, 2007 04:31:26 PM
Banana chocolate chip cupcakes with PB frosting!





The recipe...

1 cup all-purpose flour (I used wheat flour, they're a bit more muffin like)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 egg whites
2 mashed bananas
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Combine first 4 ingredients.

2. Add sugar and next 3 ingredients; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until blended.

3. Add egg whites and bananas; mix until blended.

4. Fold in choco chips.

5. Spoon into muffin pan and bake at 400 for 12 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

And I cut this in half for the frosting: http://www.recipezaar.com/138085

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / A Dozen Ways to Safety and another collage on: August 05, 2007 09:44:02 AM
These are the first collages that I've done with the intent of them being collages. (I realize that that sentence made little to no sense, lol). Anyway, here they are...

"A Dozen Ways to Safety"
It's paper scraps with 12 bicycle safety tips from an old magazine. The rabbits and mushrooms are from a Target catalog thing they sent me for college.




And I just finished this one, it's not even glued down yet. I don't know what to call it. The colors are much brighter and look much better in person, I didn't have very good light to take the pics with.  Tongue




Sooooo, what do ya think?

I found out about the St. Pete Shuffle via Etsy. I'll (most likely) be there, it sounds like so much fun! Here's all the info...
