2001  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: how does one pull apart watches for parts? on: June 16, 2010 01:52:11 PM
I started wrapping them in a towel and mashing them with a hammer... this worked but most of the important pieces where bent or scratched. Then, I discovered that you can pull out the little twisty knob (you know, the one that you use to set the time) with round-nose jewelry pliers, stick one prong of the round-nosed pliers into the open hole and wiggle it around until the back pops off. It's a cinch to pull the rest apart Smiley
Hope that helps!   Grin
Brilliant! Thanks!

The manto fev website usually has watch parts, and odd trinkets too. Gears, possibly a bicycle repair shop? I have good luck getting cheap clocks and watches at goodwill, ect. sometimes. Perhaps ask on Freecycle? Someone gave me a bag of broken jewelry once...

Good luck with the costume. Like your icon.  Grin
Maybe, if you don't use polymer clay, a paper maiche trilobite? Painted, and sealed, and attached to a collar?
Have fun!

I never would have thought to use eggs. Nifty.

Very nice! I like the keyhole necklace, and the story behind it, especially.

So very cool. Hmm....an altered book, of pressed mechanical butterflies...
You are inspiring me. A nature journal, perhaps? Anyway, you make the neatest stuff!

Steampunk swap? *drools* I don't know if I'll be free, but this would be sooo cool.
Wild West Steampunk, anyone? Oh, there's so many kinds of steampunk, all nifty.
2009  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Cartoons of the 90s Swap!!! on: June 15, 2010 05:58:47 PM
Heh. My DH and I used to come home from work, and sit back and watch the cartoons we recorded. Great way to unwind after a hard day!

Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, The Tick. Recess. Ducktails. Batman. Sooo much fun!
2010  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: June 11, 2010 01:53:35 PM
Soup. Canned tomatos, a chopped onion-or dried onion bits if I must. Any old veggies in the fridge-hey, too old for salad still works for soup. I saute the veggies a bit first. What? There's a can of corn and a can of mushrooms on the shelf? Score!Whatever spices sound good.
Hot sauce packets, or even barbeque sauce, or bouillon, or a couple of seasoning packages from ramen. Not all of the above! But seasoning of some kind.Taste as you go. Ballest-noodles, rice, beans and or potatos.Even wrinkled, sprouted potatos can be peeled down enough for use, you know.
It's called-"It's healthy, dammit" soup, and can be suprisingly tasty. I'll even make it when not broke, then I upgrade it a bit.

Warm cooked white rice with butter and brown sugar for breakfast, mmm. Rice is cheap, this is yummy.

And yay ramen, with any veggie I can find tossed in.

Dunno how weird these are, but good broke food.
