hi, Once upon a time, I had information on how to make a Christmas tree skirt using recycled Christmas cards. I have searched and searched for these instructions without success. I think the instructions came from some sort of craft magazine or maybe something like Family Circle. Any ideas?
hi, Last night, I attended a purse demo/workshop at Hancock's. It was fun and informative.
I've been having a hard time turning a purse strap. One of my colleagues got one turned, then I thought I could do the 2nd one. No way, I just couldn't get it started. I took it with me to Hancock's and one of the workshop attendees was able to complete the turn. YEH! Now I can complete the purse, probably today.
Hi, I"ll be leaving for Japan in a few weeks. Gee, I'm really scared since I've never traveled internationally. I posted on the paper craft section about gifts to take, but then I saw this site.
What types of gifts would you suggest to take to Japan? I'm thinking of some sort of paper craft, maybe small purses. One person suggested cd's and handmade envelopes.
I'll be in Tokyo and Osaka. There's so much to see and do. I'll be in each location, 4 nights. We might change to 5 nights in Tokyo. We plan to go to Mt Fuji, Tokyo Disney, Sony and a smaller community that I can't think of right now. One of my books said that students in this area will tour your around for free, so they can practice English.
I'll be looking for the crafting stores. One concern is being able to bring items back home. Is it feasible to ship items home?
hi, My family and I are going to Japan this summer. I'm thinking about making some sort of paper craft to give as gifts while in Japan. Any ideas? I have lots of paper, including marbled paper. I'm thinking of little books, some sort of ornament, maybe a bookmark. I've thought about including a photo of something local, like a waterfall that's about 5 miles from my home.
I"ll probably make up several of whatever I come up with, so it needs to be something fairly easy, but looks nice.
hi, I've got a fireplace mantle piece from my grandfather's house. My grandfather made the piece from rough wood about 1920, maybe. It's pretty basic,but I'd like to use it somehow. The mantle is basically 3 pieces of wood. Along the way, it was painted a beige color. It needs some type of refinishing. I don't have a fireplace.
I've thought about some sort of shelf, maybe 3 shelves - one of each of the three pieces. Any ideas?
hi, My 16 yo daughter would like a decorating project and our office is in need of something. It's a mess! We've got junk furniture. There's a door going into the room and a door on each side that goes into attic space. My daughter would like bold colors and I thought that might not be appropriate. My sweety hubby said to let her go with whatever she likes. So, it's a great big fun project. We haven't set any type of budget, but economical is best. (We planning a big vacation this year.)
Any ideas? Do you know of any good books/websites for office decor?
