1  California / California: North / Free Stuff in SF Bay Area on: July 07, 2009 04:00:01 PM
I have things I want to give away. If anyone is close to me and would like this stuff- shoot me a note and we can connect! I live in Fremont but go up to Richmond frequently- and I will be up there this weekend.

I have a box of fabric/lace scraps. Some are large enough to make some Barbie clothes out of and some are better for inchie fans!

I have some baby food jars and some cleaned candle jars. I cleaned them out planning to use them to make new candles but never got to it and now I really just need to clean up!

I don't have time to go through the box of fabric- or I would drop it off at Creative Reuse...

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Marble Magnets question on: October 13, 2006 01:34:50 PM
Ok I want to make some of these- I found the instructions here:
http://www.notmartha.org/tomake/marblemagnets.html

But the glue it calls for is Silicon Sealer. I just got back from OSH and Michael's and neither one of them had it! Can I use something else? Or is there another place I can get this stuff? I would like to get it without ordering online if possible.....

Thanks!

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Shower White Board on: January 27, 2006 08:59:38 PM
Ok- so my boyfriend really uses the HUGE white board we have in the living room. And the other day we are in the shower and he says he thinks in the shower- and I ask him if he would like some bath crayons to make calculations on the tile- and his eyes lit up and he said "they make something like that?" Can you tell we don't have kids!

So- I look them up online and from what I can gather from Moms that have had kids have a blast with them- they are a B*$^TH to clean up- like they don't want to come out of the grout.

so I am thinking about making a white board and putting suction cups on it- but most white boards would not like being wet or damp and probably would not want to be in the shower at all.

Sooo- if I got a thin light board and painted it with really glossy white paint, would the bath crayons come off that ok? Do they make 'white board paint'? I know there is "chalk board paint".

Since this is not for a kid- I don't worry about the bath crayons accidentally getting in the grout- IF I give him something else to write on.

So has anyone done anything like this?
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / Problems viewing pictures on: January 25, 2006 11:32:57 AM
I am having a LOT of problems viewing pictures here and I don't know why. I use Firefox but I have tried IE also and have the same problem. Also since many picutres come through just fine- and others don't, I just don't understand what is going on here. I am not the only one having problems with this:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21965.0 (this topic has many people commenting on the same problem I am having)

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=37854.0 (here is another topic where there are obviously pictures and I can't see them)

If I copy and paste into a Word Doc I get the text and places where the pictures are marked as being there but nothing is there (the usual X you get when you have an image problem)

any ideas on fixing this or what is causing it???
I really want to see the pictures that are hidden to me.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How to remove wax from glass candle holders??? on: January 23, 2006 07:39:25 PM
Ok- I have some mason jars that I bought as candles and burned them and also some of those commercial glass scented candles- again burned. So I want to remove the old wax from them and clean them so I can reuse them (for candles). I also have a frog candle holder that someone burned a candle in- and it has some wax in the bottom- I want to remove that too (and use tea lights to prevent the candle buildup).

So anyone have a good technique for doing that??

I did do a search here but nothing came up. I have also looked online (google) too and all that I found was "take an old used glass candle and remove old wax...." but no one says exactly HOW to do that easily.....

Thanks!!!
