2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Glasses for every day of the week on: December 29, 2010 01:26:50 AM
I love this!  I also have a collection of eyeglasses and have been trying to figure out a way to organize them so they are all in one spot first of all, and then to be able to see them all each day.  I just may have to steal your idea for my bathroom.

Wonderful!!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: hooded scarf pattern on: August 01, 2010 03:15:15 PM
To me, it just looks like a bunch of double crochet with chunky yarn, maybe 2 strands together.  Could just be DC, skip one, DC repeated.  I'm guessing there is a seam in the back of the hood part, and for the scarf part to get it to twist like that.

And just cuz I need to say it, I totally get what you're saying about $60 vs $20 because I browse the web for ideas all the time, but you've got to remember that people on etsy are just like us...  If it's a quality good, it's good to support fellow crafters from time to time.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need advice on a wedding dress... on: July 23, 2010 10:11:12 PM
I have pretty much the same kind of body shape.  My stomach is bigger below my belly button than above (I absolutely hate it).  When I got married my dress was flatter in the front so I was afraid of the same problem of my 'bulge' showing.  I splurged just a little and got Spanx from Lane Bryant (the ones that you wear over your underwear that come to about your knees and the top comes up right under your bra).  I think that helped a lot.  I wanted to get a size smaller than I needed to try to suck more in, but didn't based on the recommendation of the lady at the counter.  I'm glad I listed to her.  If you get one of those it will smooth you out so the dress will flow better over your body.

Good luck!!  Please post pictures of you in your dress when you things together.  I'm sure we'd all love to see!!

Me and my husband also LOVE horror films.  We have this poster in our living room.

Nice work!!!!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: Wrap capris! on: July 08, 2010 07:10:12 PM
Congrats on the weight loss!!  I am just starting on my journey to slenderdom and hope I am able to do as well as you.

Really nice job on the capris too.  I don't think I've ever seen wrap capris before, but they look really nice and comfortable.  Did you follow a pattern?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: An amazingly yellow dahlia for winter use on: July 04, 2010 10:33:17 AM
I think this looks great on you...yellow and all!  Even though you think yellow may not be your color, I think you should leave it.  Sometimes you just get an itching to do something out of the norm and it will make you feel special on some cold winter day.  (Maybe you were subconciously planning for this kind of day.)

You did a great job!!  Especially with all the adjustments and deviating from that pattern!

Wow!  That is awesome!!  I have about what you had in your first picture.  I just need to kick myself in the but to organize.  I know I'll be happy when I do...and I'll be more likely to craft!  You did a great job!!!!!!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is the best tool for cutting the hook off of button blanks? on: December 24, 2009 11:42:50 AM
I've taken the backs of these off before so I can make fabric covered buttons and glue magnets to the back (or push pins).  I just took a pliers and on the loop side squeeze the 2 'post' parts together and wiggle it around.  I don't know if that makes sense.

There is a picture here about what it will look like after they are removed.  Squeezing the loop side together makes it easier to remove them from the back side.

Good luck!
