201  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / HELP! I ruined the finish on wooden bowls! on: June 25, 2006 01:40:32 PM
I got a set of 6 wooden bowls at a garage sale, stuck them in the dishwasher aannnnddd....you got it - the finish came off!  There is still finish on the outside and inside bottom, but not the sides. They look horrible.  We had planned on taking these to our pre-1840's camping.  We can only use pewter (i think it's pewter) and wooden food items.  How can I fix these so that they can be used and don't look horrible?

Thanks in advance for any help!

204  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Question on allowing someone to join a swap on: May 21, 2006 06:50:01 PM
well, here's the deal:

someone wants to sign up for a swap.  This particular person is in a number of swaps right now.  Also is currently late in at least 3 of them.  I've also been told of poor communication during the swaps.  Now, I don't really want to deal with that, so how do I tell this person nicely that they can't be approved for the swap???

207  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Harry Potter Swap - Choices on: May 05, 2006 06:31:30 AM
Okay, here's what I'd like to do:  I'm going to list the kinds of HP swaps that we brought up in the previous thread and I'd like you to pick your favorites.  Pick as many as you like, just put them in order of your first choice to last choice. 

You can PM me your choices or just post right here in the thread!  We'll give it two weeks, so on May 19th, we'll close the voting and then I'll post which swap we'll start with.  We should be able to do one a month or maybe one every two months - to give us plenty of sign up and crafting time.  Anyhow, it should keep us all happy about HP for the rest of the year!

Here's what we have so far:  (if you have any additions, just let me know through PM please)

1.  Favorite Character Swap
2.  Favorite House Swap
3.  Favorite Book/Movie Swap
4.  Favorite 'Ship Swap
5.  Favorite Fanfiction Swap
6.  HP Tee's/Hoodies Swap
7.  Craft a Wand Swap
8.  HP Creatures Swap

Let the voting begin!!

We've had two additions to the swap choices!!  Here they are:

9.  Diagon Alley swap. you could include things from gringgotts, F & G's joke shop, the two pubs, the uniform, book, and "animal companion" shops!

10. Animal Friends swap? like stuff to do with hedwig, scabbers, Pig, Crookshanks, Buckbeak, fang?


One more item (I swear!):  please read this thread: http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html  if you are new to swapping.  It lets you know the rules and eligibility.  I believe it is one month on Craftster and 15 posts, but go check it out if you are new please!

208  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Father's Day Swap? on: May 04, 2006 06:56:52 AM
Would anyone be interested in a Father's Day Swap?  Father's Day is June 18th. 

If we did signups for two weeks from this Sunday, that would still give us about 3 weeks to craft. 

There would have to be excellent communication on this one!

My dad is hard to shop for and he likes stuff that I can't/don't know how to make.  What do ya think?
209  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Vampire/Vampyre Swap on: May 04, 2006 06:53:01 AM
I don't know if anyone else would be interested in a Vampire themed swap.

 I've loved Vampires/Vampyres since I was a little girl!  My hubby always says, "If a Vampire came knocking at the door, you'd invite him in!"LOL

We could make anything and everything to do with Vampires - totes, shirts, jewelry, you name it.  It could be for us or a loved one.

anyone interested?


210  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Saw something "new" at craft store this weekend on: April 25, 2006 08:36:56 AM
My friend and I went to a craft store this weekend and they were really pushing a class to make this "new" thing - shrines!!!!!LOL  My friend thought they were totally cool.  I told her that she didn't need a class, I would show her how to do it.  The ones they had on display were very simple ones, nothing like I've seen on here at all.

It was just amusing for me to see something at a store that Craftsters have been doing for months and months!
