191  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Honey? on: November 26, 2005 03:24:56 PM
So, my neighbor just brought me a 1/2 gallon of honey. Yep. Half a GALLON. And she has a CASE of 1/2 gallon bottles of honey from her BF's Mom. That's more toast and PB 'n honey sandwiches than this whole building could eat in a year! Does anyone have any great beauty recipes involving honey? Some of my favorite products over the years have been honey products but I've never attempted to make any. Ideas? Suggestions? Recipes? THANKS!!
192  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / The Poop Cozy on: November 05, 2005 01:43:54 PM
I had a really cute poop bag dispenser (Michael Graves at Target) but I lost it...it made me grouchy to spend another $8 so I made my own. I like my version better cause I can use bags on a roll or grocery bags, and there's room for my keys. The pic is sideways (I seem to have a problem in that area) but anyway...here it is...the Poop bag Cozy:

I want to get a red, bone shaped carabiner for it...
I cut a little slit in the side for easy poop bag dispensing...(the silver bag sticking out)
193  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My Mosaic Summer on: November 05, 2005 01:29:42 PM
So...I had these dishes I bought when I went to uni in England, 12 years ago (!). They were getting a bit worse for wear but I still couldn't quite let go. So, I smashed 'em with a hammer! Grin. And now they can live on as furniture...

194  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Old Pix + Vintage birdcage = 3D Collage on: November 03, 2005 02:04:29 PM
Hello- Ahem...my first post in the art section (*coughs nervously*)
I'm not sure if this is the right area for this..but...I found these amazing photos in a drawer at my parents' house. They are pix of my grandma as a young and fun college girl, and some other misc really old family pix. I was really close to my Grandma and wanted to do something special with them. Meanwhile...I also had a vintage birdcage that I wasn't sure what to do with. So...I was looking at a lot of Joseph Cornell and wanted to do some boxes or 3D collage, and I came up with this. I sandwiched the photos in glass, backed with beautiful hand made papers (from the art store..no credit there) and tied them up with wires and beads, and hung them in the cage, (painted black to look more iron and less shabby chic) along with a few other family-symbolic items (an overexposed roll of film, a projector bulb, some candles and an ornament) and..voila! I'm pretty pleased with it, although it was hard to get a good picture...What do you think?

195  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hemming Jeans...again... on: November 02, 2005 09:38:11 AM
I just bought a lovely pair of dark rinsed jeans but they are waaaay too long. I saw several posts listing a link about how to hem jeans and preserve the original hem, but when I click the links it diverts to an ad for Z. Cavaricci and I can't find anything about hemming. I don't sew much and I'm reluctant to cut on my new lovelies, but I want to wear them this weekend. Has anyone hemmed jeans and reattached the original hem with success? Should I just wait and go to a tailor? Yikes! Please help! I should note...I don't have a sewing machine. Is hand hemming jeans sheer madness? I hand hem regular pants with decent results... (please feel free to tell me to stop...back away from the jeans...)
196  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Where to find table legs? on: October 12, 2005 09:37:48 AM
I have a low bookcase (2 shelves) made by my Grandpa a million years ago. I have painted it lacquer red and put baskets from Ikea in the shelves to make it more "modern" and it looks great. The problem is, it sits directly on the floor and collects cat hair tumbleweeds, etc on the lower shelf. I think it would look fab if I added low legs. Does anyone have a good source for table legs?? I don't want "bun feet" or anything too fancy, carved, what have you, or metal. I am envisioning about 6" plain, tapered, Danish Modern type wooden legs, but I don't want to spend...ahem...an arm and a leg! ALSO, if anyone has any genious inspirations of a craft alternative to actual legs, I'm up for ideas!! Thanks!  One MORE question...info on how to attach legs to things would also be handy!  Smiley
197  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Locking white fur shorts???? on: October 07, 2005 08:17:52 AM
Ok, I found these in a thrift store, and although I am a bit horrified by fur, I couldn't pass them by (please no fur backlash, I feel bad enough). They are white fur hotpants, with satin lining, and on the front is a leather panel with an old-fashioned luggage style lock, and inside is a pouch with a little key! They are vintage, I'm guessing 60's or 70's. They are fantastic, but waaayyy too small for me (and all but 1 of my friends). I've always thought I could do something fun with them, but I don't know what, exactly. Anyone have any brilliant ideas?? I'll try to post a picture when I get home!
198  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knifty Knitter Baby Hat on: October 01, 2005 02:46:16 PM
This is my first ever Knifty Knitter project. I don't know how to knit, so I was excited to make this in a couple hours! My friend's baby is turning 1. Her Dad is from Greece so I wanted to make her a hat in the Greek colors, but still girly so she wouldn't be confused for a little boy. This is what I came up with. I'm pretty thrilled with my new Knifty Knitter!
