6021  UNITED STATES / Ohio / Re: Tell me about Ohio.... on: November 14, 2005 07:22:35 PM
Oh, and if you decide to move here, you HAVE to visit the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. It's the prison they used in The Shawshank Redemption, and it's such a neat place to search around in.

That place scared the CRAP out of me as a kid! My Mom would always tell me a scary tale of her delinquent cousins who went there and "were never the same"! I bet they weren't! That place is creepy!!  *shivers*
Another cool history thing I remember is LOTS of houses had tunnels and secret rooms from the Underground Railroad days. pretty cool.

I went to Ashland University which is very nearby.  I think the Reformatory is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen.  Seriously.  I went on a "haunted" tour and I just could not get over the elegance of the whole thing.  What a great piece of history.

I always just saw it from the road and my mom would launch into her spiel. (I think she was trying to scare my brother and I to keep us out of trouble,  Cheesy ) My Dad was in the reserves at that base in Mansfield but we weren't over there much. Maybe I should check it out up close to overcome my fear! It does sound really cool but it's pretty menacing from the distance! I didn't know it was open to the public.

It's exactly like a skinny hat. I made it on a knifty knitter, using the smallest size and felted it. Then I cut the slit the width of the poop bag roll, stitched it a bit and added the patch and carabiner. I embroidered the patch by drawing a simple cartoon of my dog and pinning it to the fabric, and using a roll of duct tape as a hoop. It was definitely a spur of the moment project! But I use it every day and it's much nicer than sticking all that stuff in my pockets!

Each attendant could carry an object that is somehow significant for the couple and place them on a "past & future" table near the front...
6025  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: POKEY WALLS HURT OKAY. new room, help puhleaze. on: November 09, 2005 10:38:43 AM
I'm a bit of a daredevil with color, and if you pick a color that makes you go "OOOH!!!" I think it usually works out fine. Be sure if you are painting with rollers to get the super thick fluffy covers for textured walls, and count on more paint that usual. And have FUN!!! Decoration your own bedroom the first time is a blast! (and every time after that, too!  Cheesy )
Also, consider things like fabric on the walls or hanging foamcore from the ceiling to mount your posters if you have trouble with nails/staples/whatever in the walls. And...maybe you can make a slipcover for the current bed and put on pillows to give it a "couch" look...use foam or batting to make it soft...

6027  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Imperfect dildos and butt plugs on: November 09, 2005 07:21:31 AM
okay i've seen a dildo once, but what's a butt plug look like?


*destors innocence* It's like a cone with a little tube thingy and then a flarred base.

Think of a very small traffic cone, LOL. Hey! You could set up road blocks for very small cars!
Woot! Kitchen Towels! Thanks Crafty Dame!
