451  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: latch hook butterfly pillow :D on: August 02, 2006 04:49:47 PM
I remember doing a latchhook project way back (oh god, 9 years ago) in 7th grade art class. I loved it! I don't even remember what design I did - I know that it was pretty much just a wall hanging though. I'd like to do it again! Great idea to make it into a pillow, and it looks fantastic!

So cool! The colors go together so well.
453  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [SOLVED] More specific child board names on: August 01, 2006 07:53:47 AM
I saw an older post for this, and when I went to reply, it warned me, so I just figured I'd add a new topic about it.

I like to look at the "unread posts since last visit." When I scroll through them, the board listed is often "Discussion and Questions," or something like that, and there is no indication of the parent board (crocheting, paper crafts, etc.). If the child boards could be edited somehow to include what craft is being discussed, that would be great. Even if it was just an abbreviation or something so the titles don't get too long (C for crocheting, K for knitting, blah blah blah).

Anyway, is anyone else interested in this? The old topic that I saw didn't have many replies, but I thought maybe more people would be interested now. Thanks!!
454  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: bookmark sorting/labeling/tagging? on: August 01, 2006 07:23:07 AM
I've thought this too - tagging bookmarks would be great! If we could get that, it would be awesome. If the software doesn't do that, or for some other reason it's not possible, one alternative would be to use del.icio.us (http://del.icio.us) to bookmark the posts that you want. I haven't tried it for forum posts, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. With del.icio.us, you can add your own description about the bookmark ("I got the idea for that crochet project from post #7") and then add tags to it (maybe tag all the craftster posts with a "craftster" tag so you can pull them from your other bookmarks more easily?) ... Anyway, just thought that might help, if anyone is interested!
455  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Pirate Party for 3 Year Old on: July 31, 2006 10:55:58 AM
How fun! And it's cool that his birthday is in September, because September 19 (which happens to be my sister's birthday) is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Find out more here: http://www.talklikeapirate.com. They have lots of party ideas for both kids and adults.

As for the wordking, maybe it could say, "Yer invited to celebrate the occasion of his birth on Saturday, September second. The party be held at noon, when the blazing sun is high." Or something like that. That gets rid of any western-esque wording. Good luck, and don't forget to post pictures!
456  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Appropriate Presentation of a Wedding Gift? on: July 28, 2006 08:40:24 AM
It's true that they may receive multiples of the same gift, but I think you would be safe with something like a utensil set. I know that I love having extra spoons/spatulas/etc., so multiples of those were welcome at our wedding!

I've seen some of these in the store, but none as nice looking as this! Good job!
458  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: When did you learn to crochet? on: July 27, 2006 02:36:05 PM
This is so fun reading everyone's stories!

My grandma attempted to teach me when I was about 8 or 9 ... All I could accomplish was the chain; I just could not grasp how to get any further than that, no matter how much she tried to teach me! Pretty soon we just gave up. She was awesome though - she was always crocheting us stuffed toys, including Bert from Sesame Street that for some reason did not have a nose.

Then when I was about 16, I got a crafty urge and wanted to learn how to crochet. I bought a beginner kit, but the book was totally unclear. So I went to the handy Interweb and discovered some tutorials and finally have mastered single crochet. Now this is embarassing - now I am 22, and I still haven't gotten past the single crochet. All I have really done are scarves and I'm working on a patchwork blanket for my sister. Someday though!

It makes me sad that I didn't have more time to share crocheting with my grandma. She was so proud to find out that I had started crocheting, and then when I was 19, she died. At least I have some memories, and I know that she would still be proud - even if I haven't learned how to double crochet yet. Smiley
459  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: library pockets..what to do?! help! on: July 27, 2006 10:23:49 AM
Ooh, I love those library pockets too!

I am big on keeping lists of books that I want to read and that I have read, especially journalling about books that I have read. My first thought for the cards and pockets that you have would be to use them to embellish a book journal of books that you have read. Good luck with whatever you end up doing!
