1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic Spa bottles? on: August 10, 2008 01:51:13 AM
I know there are some wonderfull uses for old plastic bottles, like making butterflies out of them. However, I can't use the bfs Spa bottles for that purpose, because they have a plastic pattern on them. Does anyone know something you could make out of Spa bottles? I can't just throw them out  Cry
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Frustrated beader... on: August 13, 2007 01:38:21 AM

Well... I never see anyone posting about this problem and I'm longing for some support so I'll admit it: I have tension issues...  Grin

Let me explain. I was making beading beads and the small ones were turning out great as I used my own pattern which uses RAW. So I decided it was time to make a big bead (I had run out of small beads...). However, to make a big beaded bead I needed to employ peyote, but as I have tension issues it looked all messy!!
Then I thought, well, I could use brick stitch instead, until I realised before using brickstitch you have to make a "base" using ladder stitch. And my ladder stitch always looks so horrible due to wrong tension.... AARGH!  Now I'm tensed as well! Cry

Does anyone suffer from the same disease (we could start a anonymous support group  Tongue) or does anyone have a solution?
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Disco queen stencil? on: August 16, 2006 07:21:48 AM
Hi guys!

I saw this T-shirt in a magazine and I really liked it! I'd like to make one myself, but there is one problem: I can't seem to find any nice picture for stenciling that looks like this one.

I hope you can help me!
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Mosaic (?) thingies on: June 29, 2006 08:22:23 AM
Hey there,
I just found these things, but I have no idea what they are or what I fun stuff I could make with it:

The colours are a bit hard to see, but they're clear, yellow, orange (neon), green and blue. I put a Labello lip balm on the photo too as a size indication.
At first I thought they were beads, but they don't have any holes in them. I think they might be meant to make a mosaic with, but I'm not sure at all. They might as well be meant for your aquarium   Tongue

What could I make with these things? I'm not really a mosaiclover, but if anyone comes up with a great idea, I'd be really happy  Smiley
