3291  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Lip Gloss is Forever (along with some kissing advice from the Frog Princess) on: September 01, 2006 08:40:13 AM
Oooh, love the cinnamon honey idea!  It figures that I threw out a half empty tub of petroleum jelly last weekend (with no lid).  Will definitely have to try this as I bought lots of candy flavorings a year or two ago, and the kids don't like the taste of the flavors  (I want Jolly Rancher to make candy flavorings!). 

Thanks for the recipe!  I might make a trip out for petroleum jelly to make some for when DD gets back from grandma's.

Alas, it seems like all my projects are needing a band-aid board.  If I'm not burning myself cooking, I'm pricking my finger with a beading needle, or cutting myself with my rotary cutter, or cutting myself while cutting someone's hair...   

I think I need a live-in nurse.  Smiley   At least I haven't hurt myself crocheting (except for repetitive motion injuries) yet.  Roll Eyes

I'd be interested in a glass board as well.  I haven't actually done much of anything with glass (a little bit of etching, and some beading with glass beads that I bought), but I love stained glass!  It sounds like a wonderful idea to me!

This looks SO much more worthwhile (and workable) than my photo album pocket pages (the ones with little pockets to put all the floss bobbins in, but if you try to put in a bobbin with a whole skein of floss, it bulges the pocket out so it falls out when you flip the pages)!  I'll have to get some of those rings!  Did you use the paper bobbins or the heavier weight plastic ones?

These are really cool! Thanks for posting this.

It really does make a difference to separate out the strands before you stitch with embroidery floss.  I was in a hurry once and tried to use it as one piece, and there's no comparison in the finished product.  Incidentally, it's really easy to separate the strands if you cut your piece, then pull them from the end. The rest of them will bunch up at first, but don't usually knot up (no matter how bad it looks while you're pulling out the strand).  It works much better than trying to separate out by pulling from the middle (where you get knots on both sides that don't relax back into shape).

I found this while looking for something to do with the new "Light Effects" floss from DMC (no affiliation, just think they're spiffy).  This gives me a good reason to ask for lots of the new variegated floss colors for Christmas (or buy them now to make stuff for Christmas.)   Smiley

There are lots of good suggestions in the other Ann Arbor thread.  If you're into beading, one place that's not mentioned is Findings, which is on Jackson Road near Wagner. They also offer classes (and their class schedule is online at www.beadseekers.com ). There's also a Viking Sewing Center on Jackson Road (maybe 1/2 mile down the road from Findings) that I haven't been into, and a fabric store called Cloth Encounters on Plymouth Road  (www.clothencounters.com).

There's also the standard Michael's at Arborland (on Washtenaw), Joann's on Carpenter Road and Ann Arbor-Saline Road, and Hancock Fabrics on Maple Road (near Jackson Road).   

The current movie theater at Briarwood Mall happens to be a "dollar" show if you're interested, too (Briarwood's on Eisenhower at State Street, and has a website at www.shopbriarwood.com). 

Hope that helps you find something to do.  Also, this week is the Ann Arbor Art Fair (in the downtown area).  It's a pain if you have to find a place to park, but there's definitely lots of stuff to look at (or was the last time I went to look, which I'll admit was close to 10 years ago).

Welcome to the area!

I'm in Saline, too!  We moved here about 5 years ago, after spending 5 years in Ypsilanti.  For the most part, I sew, but  I occasionally bead, crochet, and cross stitch, too.  Knitting has never worked for me, as it just gets tighter and tighter until I can't get the needle to go where I want it.  I did buy larger needles recently in hopes that I might try again, but the kids think they make awesome drum sticks, so I'm not sure I'll get to try them out.
