1  EUROPE / FRANCE / Paris for the younger crafty set? on: February 01, 2008 08:22:57 PM
hello craftster community, long time no post!
anyway, for my school this year, we're going to Paris. I was wondering:
a) any "must-check-out" places you all could recommend? i know we're going to have down time so i'm hoping to compile a little list of awesome shops, cafes, restaurants, and vintage stores to go to. suggestions? anything retro, edgy, or music-related (or crafty of course!) and i'm totally there.
b) would anyone in Paris care to potentially meet up? as i said, there's going to be extreme down time, but it's kinda tentative, but i thought i would ask regardless. what better way to see Paris than by a parisian craftster?

thanks for your help, guys!

3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / funding a trip to Australia? on: April 10, 2006 11:31:43 AM
hey everyone,
i'm going to be visiting Australia with the People to People student ambassador program this summer. tuition, however, is rather hefty. anyone have any suggestions of crafty/indie businesses that would be willing to donate some of their wares for me to sell to help the cause?
thanks, everyone!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / XXL long shirt to cute shirt/dress! on: March 31, 2006 06:42:49 PM
hi all! been a long time since i've posted a project...
this was a HUGE, long-sleeved shirt my dad brought me back from Japan. apparently they put random english words on shirts, not unlike how we get random japanese symbols tattooed on us without knowing their meaning... so i thought that was pretty cool so i reconned this shirt into a cute strapless shirt dress to wear over jeans! yay!

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Stocking Swap? on: November 12, 2005 12:35:58 PM
how about a swap where you would make an unusual/alternative christmas stocking, i.e. converse, gogo boot, etc? i think we could get really creative with this! ( i've never organized before so if anyone would like to organize this, you're more than welcome...)

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Japanese Street costume??? on: October 01, 2005 08:05:39 AM
hi all,
i started thinking about costumes a while back, and was considering making a Japanese Street Fashion costume. However, what i didn't know, was that i was going to be invited to a halloween party (costumes necessary) on october 15. so, now all i have is a vague idea that no one will understand anyway... and about two weeks to get it done.
i have tons of scans picked out, but i really need ideas!
can anybody help me?
thanks!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / easy yet alternative kids crafts? on: September 18, 2005 10:21:51 AM
ok, yes, not truly gift ideas, but it seemed like that kind of thing.
I'm going to be working with kids in grades 4 and 5 in an afterschool daycare-type thing.
any ideas what cool alternative crafts would be fun, inexpensive, and not too complicated for them?
thanks!

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / urban art swap? on: August 16, 2005 10:26:33 AM
i don't think i could organize this, but i had an idea for an urban art swap. i could be stuff decorated with graffitti-inspired art, or we could swap stenciled stickers for putting up around our city... anything urban-esque.
does it sound like a good idea?
