221  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pet Recipes - What To Avoid on: January 04, 2006 02:07:35 AM
this topic is a great one to discuss, especially when you can buy bog biscuit reciepe set for a dollar at Target.

I also had no idea chocolate was that harmful to a dog or cat. The yorkie my step-mom had would steal chocolates, and boy when they came out is was gross, but I had no idea it could have been fatal. Definitely good to know!
222  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: hedgehog help on: January 04, 2006 02:03:36 AM
how about an adaptation of a kitty bed? or just a lined pillowcase for him to hang out in?

where is his favorite place to be? whatever it is, you can always make it more cute nd comfortable. Maybe if he likes to sleep in certain clothes or fabric, make something out of that! there are a million things you could make if you think like your hedgehog

p.s. I'm so jealous, I've wanted one for years, ever since I met a fellow classsmate's hedgehog named Pokey
223  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: January 04, 2006 01:54:26 AM
a brief history of Lauren via action shots I had lurking around my computer (the scraps, if you will)

this was bright bright bright red hair. it was beautiful. this picture does it no justice...
and I look like a doofus........ why did I post this?
(Nov. '02-Chicago)

then that was turned into a hawk (not pictured, which is a shame, because I laid my head on a scanner after I cut it. Alas, I believe that file has been lost forever in the mac lab at school)

So I had to grow the hawk out, but I kept some red
(Dec. '03-Italy)

growin' out a hawk is hard to do...
(Feb. '04-my bathroom)

then I started cutting my own hair and NOT in a hawk... bad move
(June '04-Courtesy Diner)

now entering present era...
"you look so good with blonde hair and black roots it's not even funny"
(Aug. '04-in bed, a very descriptive photo)

now I promise the blue was beautiful the first time (started dyeing my roots)
(Feb. '05-Diablo Ink, tattooing the duck of doom!)

my baby, me, and Jess (ironically, my hairdresser)
trying to get rid of that blue was torture, but it worked!
(Sept. '05-Halo Bar)

Next up? blonde, green, and black.
Now I just can't decide what hairCUT I want

sorry there were so many pictures, this is the most addictive thread EVER! thanks for looking

p.s. I actually smile... really I do quite a bit, unfortunately these pictures are not as representative as I'd like them to be, but it's all I've got for now!
224  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Tattoo flash paintings (2 pics) on: January 03, 2006 11:58:45 PM
i think it looks great! i'm a tattooist, I recognize that flash, and I think the black background was the perfect choice.

Also, I second krushvillis precautionary note, it's extremely important!:
But please please remember to NEVER EVER touch or use tattoo equipment without access to an autoclave and knowledge as to how to work and maintain it (spore tests, ect). Plus access to a sterile environment, gloves, and other equipment. HIV and Hepatitis are not just transmitted through needles, but also potentially through shared inks and other equipment.

yeah, she's right, that means ANYTHING and EVERYTHING around, and that means lots of practice setting up a sterile table and keeping gloved (gloved ALWAYS) paws off of any other surface besides his work surface. Even if he's just tattooing himself for practice, he needs to treat the environment around him, himself, and you with the utmost care. My old boss gave me the best advice on how to deal with clients: assume everyone you tattoo has AIDs, Hepatitis, HPV... anything and everything, and you'll be sure to keep yourself safe, as well as them. It's not personal, of course, it's just a good rule of thumb.
225  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How Formal is Winter Formal? on: January 03, 2006 11:31:32 PM
if you like your dress, who cares?

besides, it's a beautiful dress with an extremely flattering cut, I'd go with some lt. blue satin sash around the waist and a very simple, short shrug. You could find some black shoes and add light blue details yourself like a satin bow or ribbon flower
like this
there are lots of different ribbons if you google some ideas, too.
I always thought it was insane how much any girl in high school spends on formalwear, just so you can wear it once and throw it in the back of the closet. I think it's much better to get alot of use out of a few great dresses and show off your mad craftin' skills

good luck, have a great time at your dance
you better post a picture of the finished result!
226  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Oh my gosh, I am so excited!! on: January 03, 2006 10:59:24 PM
Horray!!!! Cheesy

DPNs are beautiful things.
the only suggestion I have for the beginning DPN-enthusiast is to always use 5 needles instead of 4. I found this out the hard way after making 3 sets of the most badass armwarmers only to find out that using 4 needles doesn't distribute the tension enough and creates a ladder on one of the seams... and it looks terrible. However, I couldn't see it well in the picture so you may already be doing this. If so, great!

again, Congratulations! not only can you make tubes, but can pick up stitches from different joined peices and connect them with a new tube! (like adding a neck to a sweater) it's so exciting!
227  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Leg warmers swap? on: January 03, 2006 10:38:46 PM
a legwarmer swap is a fantastic idea.
I'm in.

229  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: does anyone know the name of this magazine...? on: January 03, 2006 03:21:30 AM
Knit1! or Knit.1... whatever, I'm not sure where exactly the one goes, but it's a magazine put out quarterly by Vogue. It's a great magazine and the winter issue specialized in Men's clothing.

You could probably search google for Knit 1 or k1.com and find the website (which isn't very helpful) honestly, your best bet is to just buy the mag, because it's worth it (or chuck it in your bag when no one's watching, it's worth that too! ha)
230  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Any ideas on a beginner project? Maybe a shawl/wrap/shrug? on: January 03, 2006 03:13:35 AM
these are the postmodern legwarmers on knitty
they're a great starting place, I've made alot of my own revisions and created entirely different things from the idea this pattern teaches the beginning knitter. Have fun!
