That stencilrevolution site is AMAZING!!  Shocked
The tutarorials page is wonderful.
IDEA:  there's a tutatorial on how to make stencils out of color photographs with photoshop...you could use this to take regular photographs and print their images onto fabric for some really amazing skirts or dresses...also, you could use the stencil that you make to do crazy cool glass etching projects.

let me know if anyone tries this.  i'm going to try it out next week...

I've found just the bottle of cream at Michael's...you can also order it on line at
DickBlick.  It's kind of pricey for a bottle, I think I paid about 9$...but it lasts a really long time, and you can do a lot with one bottle.

Re: Questions about etching
You can get the glass etching cream at Joanne's or Michael's.  It's called Armour Etch and it comes in a purple and white bottle.  They also make an array of other glass etching items, including different sized mirrors, glass cutting equipment, stencils, and lettering.  
The etching cream washes off easily with warm water, and you only have leave it on for about a minute.  It's a very easy, quick gift to make.  
It's also dishwasher safe once on the glass.  

Hope this helps.  
On another note, Dover Books has an amazing collection of books full of graphics, and clipart.  These are very easy to copy and transfer onto contact paper and make your own glass etching stencils.

this is a GREAT idea.  another good idea...the same company that makes the etching cream also makes a bottle cutter (for fairly cheap).  you can cut the tops off of wine bottles, wiskey bottles, what have you...make vases, and then etch them with the design of your choice.  if it's a design you want, use tracing paper and vinyl drawer liner to make your own stencil to stick to the surface.  

awesome gifts...really.  Grin cheers.
