11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / plaid duct tape bag on: August 05, 2005 07:02:26 PM
i, funkyolive, being of scottish heritage and crafty mindset, have attempted to make a plaid duct tape bag.

this is only the front panel, but... does it look like plaid? i was trying to follow the basic tartan thing, but i think it looks more Mod then, erm, plaid-ish.
any tips?

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / love not war earrings! on: August 03, 2005 03:15:13 PM
okay- so i have no idea where to get more mini army men- these are about the size of the fishhook earrings- but i love them to death.

(sorry for the extreme craposity of the photo... camera phone.)
one's an army man, one's a heart button (you could use any kind of heart charm, bead, etc.) and they are my new favorite earrings. and they took, like, 12 seconds to make.
thanks for looking!

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Coloring pages on: July 04, 2005 06:35:55 PM
hi all,
ok, so apparently this "when we were kids" nostalgia has been taken to a whole new level- coloring books.
and the super-crafty people such as yourselves are even making their own coloring pages/books. but that's not what i'm asking about right now.
(what are you asking?)
i'm asking what are your favorite coloring pages from online? some from kid's toys, some from other crafty people, anything?
coloring is awesome. re-connect with your innner child... or whatever.
thanks,
funkyolive

18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / gifts for science teacher?! on: December 04, 2004 05:11:28 PM
Hi all,
I'm stumped- i need to make a chirstmas gift for my science teacher. My friend already has taken the gummy-worm-disection route, so I can't do that (darn). so, if this helps at all:
he's a guy
he has a pet ferret
he has a large pet snake
he really really loves science

can anyone come up with some sort of science-themed gift, i'd be their best friend for the rest of forever.
thanks!

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help Me! I'm new to knitting and I have way too much determination! on: October 09, 2004 08:18:45 AM
Hi all,
Ok, the only logical answer to this may be "Do something easier," but I started knitting over the summer and have since made 3 scarves (and a crocheted hat... but that's another story) and I really really really want to try knitting my brother (gameboy geek) a gameboy case with, if possible, pacman or a 1-UP mushroom on it. Yes, I have never knit pictures before (intarsia?), and yes, I may fail miserably. But i will try, darnit, and I need your help. How would I go about any of this?
Thank you very lots.

20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Easy Straight hair straightener ( a review, of sorts) on: September 05, 2004 08:34:30 PM
Hi people,
i'm not sure if this is right for this board, but i thought i'd just say...
I recently bought Easy Straight hair straightening kit from my CVS, and let me tell you- it worked really well for my hair type (light, wavy/curly, thick as anything).
I used to straight iron my hair all the time and never wanted to get my hair wet for fear of spending an hour with hair clips and hot steam. (jeez, run on sentances, thy name is me! lol)
anyway, my hair now straighter than when i ironed it, and (hopefully) alot less work. I'll let you know after i shower. Wink
Here's a run-down on the kit- GET A FRIEND TO HELP- NOT GOOD TO UNDERTAKE ALONE!
four steps.
*NOTE: MY SYNOPSIS IS IN NO WAY TO BE USED INSTEAD OF AUTHORIZED DIRECTIONS INCLUDED IN KIT. okay. hehe.
1. (clip up hair into sections with provided clips) step 1 product is a thick cream that you microwave, add the step 2 oil to, and completely coat your hair with (using rubber gloves). let sit under a shower cap for your hair-type-time. (chart in panphlet) warning- do this in a well ventilated area. THIS STUFF STINKS!!!
like rotten eggs (kind of) or a permanent or bathroom cleaner. Won't stink much at all after you shower.
2. shower. your hair will feel like it's clay, very moldable... shampoo and conditon (your normal product) but don't scrub your hair/head. hair is very fragile.
rinse until clean.
3. towel dry.
4. mix step 3 with water in its own bottle, which is filled only about an eighth of the way with purple liquid. shake well.
5. get a friend (AGAIN, A FRIEND) to soak your hair with this. wear old clothes. you can put towels on the flook or do this in a tub or shower. totally drench every inch of your hair.
6. shower. shampoo, but don't condition.
7. back in old clothes, drench hair with leave in conditioner. WHOLE BOTTLE. seems like a ton of liquid in that tiny bottle, doesn't it? hmm.
8. comb hair often, don't put hair behind ears until dry.

* NOTE: after step 3 or step 6 (can't remember), comb hair every 3 minutes. for 10 minutes. I think it's step 6, but don't sue me.

So, that's the work you have to go through to get your hair straight.
I'm sure the makers of this kit will soon come out with shampoos and conditioners and the like to follow up with "for best results."
whatever that means.

okay, folks, that's my step-by-step run down of what to do, what it smells like, and what color it is. I hope someone on craftster benefits from this.

tata, olive
