7561  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Reading Rainbow Swap round?? on: December 28, 2007 12:53:49 PM
Astica- I got: Hmmm? (memory), Zzz... (sleep), Aha! (intelligence), Wow! (5 senses), Squirt! (blood), Burp! (eating), Baa! (genes and cloning), Achoo! (germs). I was going to try and order used ones, but I have Amazon Prime so I get free shipping. That, plus the 4-for-3 sale made it worth buying new ones. Now, I just have to make sure I let my students actually touch them Wink

And, vampires totally frighten me! I read 'Salem's Lot (saw the movie on TV as a kid) when I was home from college one summer. The night I finished, I was woken by  a scream from my sister (a nightmare, I think) followed by a flash of lighting, then thunder. All I could imagine was that a vampire was attacking her, and I was so terrified that I couldn't get up to check on my sister! Fortunately, she was alive and well the next morning. I did read several of the books in the Interview With a Vampire Series, but I got a little bored with them. I also just read  You Suck! which was the second in the series (someone let me borrow it), so now I have to go back and read the first one.

I don't know what the spatula thing is, but I have a guess about the cone shaped things...I have a braided rung kit and it has these cone shaped things- very similar to yours- that you feed the fabric through. The two circular tubes on the inside roll the fabric inward to make a skinny fabric tube-like thing that you can braid (it takes the flat piece of fabric and rolls the edges inward). You slide it down the fabric strip as you go, braiding the rolled end as you go...

I'd be interested in a tute! I made my brother a Tick t-shirt for Christmas and sent him a pic of the hoodie...might have to make a grown-up sized one, so knowing how to make the antennae would be key. Thanks!

Can't wait! I am heading out to do some errands and maybe catch a movie. So, hopefully I can start carving tonight!

And, balkandina, thanks for working so hard and so quickly to match us up with partners!

craftADDchick - So I definately have a book series I'd like to reccomend for your classes that's scienc-y. I don't know what kind of science you were looking for, but I love these things (geared for younger kids - but can be enjoyed at any age)
If you don't already know of them, it's a book series by Kids Can Press (The Mysterious You series). The two I own are "Humm? (the most interesting book you'll ever read about memory)" and "Zzz... (the most interesting book you'll ever read about sleep" I know there's one about cloning too. And there should be more.
There's lots of cool facts and they're very colourful Cheesy
I'd send my copies over... but I'm afraid I love them too much ^^;

Oooh! Thanks for the info! I've never heard of these.I'll have to head over to Amazon to check them out. And, truth be told, I do have a bunch of science-y kids books...but they're mine...and I don't want to bring them into my classroom to have them dropped, mangled, sneezed on, etc. For some of them (There's a Hair in my Dirt! by Gary Larson, Verdi and Stellaluna by Janell Cannon, Tuesday and Flotsam by David Weisner, Gone Wild by David McLimans) I've had to buy a second copy because they are just too great to keep out of my classroom! But I still cringe when I see them being mis-handled  Tongue


ETA: I just went over to Amazon and got 8 books in the series (they were having a 4-for-3 special). They should be here on Wednesday! Thanks for the tip, Astica!

Snowflake is just adorable! Love her eyes! How did you do them? And, I love her sculpted mouth, too!

Her eyes are the ONLY doll eyes I could find - they're basically big googly eyes with a shank on the back.  I glue-gunned the eyeslids on, and the eyelashes are some I had from Halloween (comme inspir par le Tigre, fait prs MalibuKasey.)

Thanks for the added info! I really love the look...might have to do a bit more shopping while the sewing machine is in the shop Wink

Wow! I love this so much I went and ordered the book as soon as I saw it! You did a fantastic job on this- thanks for sharing!

Whoo-hoo! This will be great because I am eyeing a couple of other swaps, so I can work on this one over the weekend since I am on vacation!! Then I won't feel so guilty about signing up for another swap or two Wink

I haven't previously done any craft alongs.. but I would be interested in this one. Motivation.... Roll Eyes

Hey, you can join me! I got started on this way late and then got bogged down with other things. I have the October, November and Decemebr easy squares done. I'll be starting January this weekend, I think, especially since I am bringing my sewing machine to the repair shop tomorrow. I'll need other things to work on!
