1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: creative halloween costumes on: October 25, 2010 12:46:03 AM
I use to work at a drug store, one halloween a customer came up with a couple bags of the really cheap sponges.  She told me "I'm going to pin them to myself, cause I'm self absorbed" corny but so funny
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Etsy fees on: September 15, 2010 04:02:31 AM
I know this is kinda late on the reply front and kinda unrelated but being the curious person I am I compared the fees between etsy and ebay (for auctions not set price items or Business & Industrial equipment) (as of 9/15/10)
Etsy listing fee is 20 cents
eBay listing fee ranges from .10-2.00 depending on the initial listing price. 
Etsy sales fee is 3.5% (not including shipping cost)
eBay sales fee is 8.75% for stores and 9.0% for non stores.
eBay also has a fee for buy it now ranging from .05-.25 cents.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / What to give the other woman? on: December 22, 2007 04:21:52 AM
The Back Story
So my dad and mother are going through a divorce that involve another woman... Now my dad's girlfriend and I get along quite well and they have been dating for at quite a quite long time now so I suddenly struck five days before Christmas with the question of WHAT THE HECK DO I GET HER??  Now as a crafter with an amount of spare time and a poor college kid with little to no money, I was struck by my own need of pot holders and then I realized everyone needs more pot holders ( Roll Eyes

The Project
So not being able to remember a single color in her home I just picked to colors of yarn that I liked

It's homespun 381 Barley and Red Heart  0512 Turqua

I then knitted a rectangle (and by the last inch and a half of second one I thought I was never going to be done)


Then I sowed it into a square so it had a finger/thumb pouch. 


And Finally a Sudo Action Shot



I made a set of two in under two days and I slept and went to work.  I knitted them on 9's and I must say that knitting two strands of yarn on 9's was stiff and frustrating at time but gives it a good thickness to keep from burning fingers And the pouch keeps you from ploping your pot holder in your food or if placed the other way then it keeps your fingers from slipping of the edge of pot holder (maybe I'm the only one who has that issue).  If I was to do it again I would make two pouches I believe and/or make the pouch longer. 

Sorry for the excess of pictures and length of this post I'm going off of no sleep.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: beware the fabric sprays. on: May 03, 2007 01:30:57 PM
Did you get it at walmart??

I got some fabric spray paint there and it was poop.  It bleed out so bad and on the package it said that it was for stenciling so I really don't know what was up with that.  Thanks but I will stick with normal spray paint.

Where did you get that awsome fabric??

I would guess depending out the weight the top could just sit on top and would probly make it easier to move. 

Where in your house do you keep it?
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! on: September 19, 2006 10:19:34 PM
So this happened a bit ago but it's way tragic.

I opened a door, and totally ripped the scab off of my tattoo(the one on my foot) and way down into the not scab part.  A) it hurt B) now it's kinda weird now.. I think I'll go in to see the artist (I have had school stuff coming out of the wazoo).  Has anyone else had this happen??

The Door is up off the floor a bit and has an edge to it(the room used to be carpeted) and now it's tile but we haven't replaced the door yet if that helps the situation make sense.

So see it's not quite a "tramp stamp".  I also have a tiny green star on my foot but I don't have any pictures of that one right now I'll probly get pictures of those in about a month when I get the other ones put on.  I have at least 3 more to put on they all stand for something.  I dig it.   

Oh and that was a couple days after they where done so yeah they are a wee bit scabby.
