281  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Laptop on: March 23, 2007 05:53:33 AM
I lucked into a Dell laptop, and have a few ideas I am thinking of doing to utilize it. Please tell me what you think.

For the keys/keyboard I want to pop the keys, and make them all magnets, with metal placed under them.

For the screen I was thinking of doing one of 3 things:
  • make it a white board for messages
  • make it into a corkboard for messages
  • make it into a chalkboard for messages

Not sure what else could be done, but I want it to be a fun message center for home or office. Make sense?

By the way, I've removed the hard drive, and anything that adds weight to the laptop, so it almost weighs nothing.

Ideas would be awesome!  Grin
282  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Holy Cow! Crash Glass Trivet! on: March 15, 2007 12:01:31 PM
Added this new mosaic piece to my shop today, and had loads of fun it. I've used "crash" glass to make this fun trivet. The cow turned out so good, I really want to keep it!

Comments and input would be great!  Smiley
283  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Morning Glory Mosaic on: March 01, 2007 11:49:52 AM
This is one of my latest mosaics. I used all sorts of various mediums to create it, and am pleased with the outcome.  Smiley
284  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Texas Flag Mosaic on: February 09, 2007 12:48:11 PM
Just finished this today for my in-laws, who live in Austin, Texas. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.   Smiley

The substrate is plexiglass, with stained glass pieces, grouted in black. Then I put hooks and a chain to hang it from.
285  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic Soda Caps (And Much More) on: January 22, 2007 08:09:00 AM
Found this site, and had to show the wonderful ideas this woman has come up with for plastic soda caps, and other plastic lids.

If you look at the rest of the site, especially the Sculptures, she reuses all manner of things. Very inspiring!!! Also check out the wire work.

When I searched I could not find it posted, so if this has been posted previously I apologize.
286  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Shopify on: January 20, 2007 10:50:23 PM
Found out about Shopify from another Craftster member who has a shop there. So I was curious to check it out, and see how it is. There is so much more to it than Etsy in many respects.

They offer variety in appearance, and here are some random shops to show what I mean:

There are so many options to create your own site.

The fee they charge is only 3% on your monthly sales. No listing fees, no limit to images, etc. You get 40MB of space to have your shop information.

Has anyone else here given it a try? What do you think of Shopify?
287  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Frame - Gift for Someone Special on: January 10, 2007 02:16:59 PM
Every week for the last 8 - 9 months I have been learning with my Rabbi's wife (the Rebbetzin). She is so wonderful, and kind I wanted to make a special thank you for her, and this is what I did.

I took some photos of the Rabbi in our temple, and then made a mosaic frame to put the picture into. Here is the result, and I am on my way to take it to her now. The pictures do not show the china pattern very well I'm afraid.

I am so pleased with how the photo, and mosaic frame turned out.  Smiley

Has anyone heard of, as either a buyer or seller, of HomeGrownMarket.com?

290  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Grandmother's Sewing Box - A Tribute ATC on: December 28, 2006 05:47:26 PM
This is my first ATC, and it is a tribute to my Grandmother. She passed away November '05 at eh age of 96. I got all her sewing kits, kniiting supplies, etc. She had things from when she was in her 20's that is just like new! But that is how everything she owned was kept.

Anyhow, here is the card made from some of the items. If you see the initials RF on the label tape, that was her maiden initials, and she was married for 51 years. I could go on about all the things in the sewing kits, but instead here is the card.
