Nope - that that is textured black card stock.

I don't think the decorated envelopes are a big issue - we have been doing it for the Happy Mail Swap for a couple of rounds, and Stampington encourages it for people sending in letters or art work to be published - they often will show some prime examples in their  magazines.  Simon Says Stamp is showing some mail art on their blog too, and how  to do it.  Years ago when I worked at a summer camp for a few years I used to hand make my envelopes from interesting magazine papers too, and there was never an issue. 

I made this for Valentines today myself.

For me, it depends on how you use them.  For the ones in the living room, kitchen, etc, I kept them short, but enough for for all of us to pull them - including shorty me.  Our ceilings are probably 8 feet, but the fans hang down a bit - probably 5-6 inches.  You just don't want them so long that people walk into them.  In my work room, the pulls are down over my work table, so I can't stand right under and pull the pulls, so I added extensions and they actually hang down a full 2 feet - but then even if I have things like the ironing board out, and have to reach over something, I can reach them - including from my usual seat.

Are you thinking about making them as ornaments to sell?  If so, make it a bit of ball chain and include the adaptor/link thing so people can decide themselves what length they want it at.

Uzumaki spiral lace paper:


I am not sure about spray on - but if it is just for a small project, you can get adhesive sheets or glue runners that can lay down a strip of adhesive that will work with fabric.  I have used both the Xyron and the 3M glue runners/sheet adhesive for fabrics/ribbons and am happy with them.  I think the glue dots work with fabric/ribbons onto paper too.

Otherwise, a number of companies make a fabric spray adhesive - but look for one that specifically is meant to be a permanent bond, versus repositionable.  I haven't tried it myself - but what about:

Make this about a foot cubed and it would be soooooooo great for a little girl - I would have LOVED this with my play farm as a kid... my parents still have the table I had my play farm on and I can totally see this on that, with some fabric dollies, a fabric horsie, piggies, some trees....

I want a play house!!!!!!!

.... or my childhood back!!!!!!

I am part way done... contemplating some details.  Need a bit more of a supply, but have not made my way down to the main supplier of this.  Things have gotten a bit busy again, FIL went back in to the hospital for a planned surgery - they were able to fix a persistent problem, but not reverse his ostomy.  He's having some complications again - I think that will be his lot in life though - he is a myeloma survivor, but it left him with some long standing issues that are coming into play now - like his persistent anemia, and higher risk for infection/lower immunity.  I am hoping to concentrate on this completely on this on my days off this week, and have it done by next week...

the next few days coming up may be good to make the gelli pad - not so cold during the day as to freeze it, but cold enough for it to set up.  I forgot the proportions of gelatin to liquid, but sometimes even keeping at cool room temp for long enough, if there is enough gelatin, should be enough.  What about your cold room?

Can any of those totes of yarn fit on top of the cabinet?  Just thinking that they would be light so can go high, and then anything large and bulky or heavier can go low - less strain perhaps in the long run.

What about making a carrot soup instead - it's a good day for soup!

It's been a great year for viruses to go around the GTA - lots of flu, RSV, and norovirus.  It sucks, but over with fast enough - so hope she feels better soon.  Careful though - HIGHLY contagious.

Yeah - I think all the partners of Craftsters have similar problems - I still remember Jim coming up to me, lifting his bare foot up, and showing me one of my beading needles in his toe.  I know one went flying a couple of weeks ago in the basement family room.  I really hope it got vacuumed up since then.  At least when we had friends over for a board game night, no one got stuck with it!

I am totally procrastinating today - did a bit of cleaning - friends coming over tomorrow night again.  I have a double batch of chili cooking - some for dinner tomorrow night.  Will be trying a GF corn muffin recipes and making a mousse cake... but I am enjoying watching the birds at the feeders outside my window far too much.

I can't wait until Jim puts in new windows - then my craft room will have a bay window too!

... though this can add to the islands of shame awfully quickly, you can get some awesome ephemera in the used books for sale section of the library.  I like to go to the Toronto Reference library - they often have lots of old music books, maps, reference books.
