2351  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Hail to the King, baby! - Bruce Campbell Swap on: September 26, 2007 07:44:48 PM
Brisco County,yea! Ionacus-was that his character on Hercules? The king of thieves.I probably won't be able to do this,but I'm bookmarking this thread! I'm swapping already,and I can't take on another,no matter how tempting.

I remember the bugaloos! Why not just make butterfly wings to attach to either a home made or dollar store doll?
Now H.R.Puffenstuff-that would be creepy!

Looks like it works great-good idea! It's funny,I was at Goodwill yesterday,and they had a metal toddler/youth bed stood vertically,and I couldn't help but think"hmmm,wonder how that would be with fabric stored over all those bars?"
It's a wonder we craftsters ever throw anything away-it's all got possibilities.I love your shoe rack,and am jealous of all your shoes.Smiley

2356  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Glow in the Dark, Outer Space room? on: September 25, 2007 07:19:47 AM
Cd's are shiny,silver and fun.Make a ufo to hang.Glue 2 cd's together,shiny side out,put a dome in the middle(cut a styrofoam ball in half and paint it?).Cds already have a hole in the middle,use fishing line and a needle to go through cds and dome to hang.Someone here covered the top of her nightstand in  a layer of cds.The little trinkets from bubble gum machines that come in the clear plastic domes on a snap on base? I used the little container for a space ship on a mobile-put in a little spikey ball and a googly eye for the alien;it's part of a mobile.
Punch a pattern in a lampshade to shine out and look pretty.Christmas tree lights could be fun somehow.
And Elmer's makes glow in the dark glue.I bought some years ago to make a poster for my daughter's room.Comes in a tube,elmers glow squeeze creations.Look in a craft store-mine's a few years old,hopefully they still make it. You can make any shape you want,layer it thick.Maybe if you made your spirals on plastic wrap and peeled them off when dry? Even if you can't find glow glue,just use plain old glue,and paint it with glow in the dark paint when you're done.
HIghlighter fluid glows under black light.Someone here used real glow in the dark liquid she bought on ebay,added to water in jones soda bottles,and lined up on a shelf-looked fun.When someone asked about it,highlighters were offered as a subsitute.
If your town has a planetarium,scope out their gift shop for ideas.Maybe you can find some space fabric to make a duvet cover with-look at sheets,too,especially in the kid's dept-they get all the fun stuff.Get a round,flat pillow.Make a tube of fabric,stuff it,sew it around the fat pillow for a ringed saturn planet.Make a star shaped pillow.Look at the NASA website,their images are free to the public.Look in thrift stores,or the dollar bin at a comic store,for comics or paperbacks with retro space covers to frame or decoupage on furniture.
I love space stuff.Oh,and look at all the cheesy christmas displays already out at craft stores,and especially places like walmart,home depot,ect. You'll find lots of nifty star ornaments,garland,ect,that might look right at home in a space room.

Your piano desks rocks! Kudos for having the imagination to think of it,and the skill to make it-you should be very proud.
Oh,and someone earlier in the thread was asking about your quote?

"they'll be two dates on your tombstone everyone
will read them..but the only thing that matters
is the little [ dash between them ]"
It's from the song "Life down here on earth",cd same title,by Kevin Welch.I like that quote also.
2358  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Plastic Bag "fabric" projects on: September 24, 2007 04:00:13 PM
I did something unique-but no pictures because it didn't turn out well;I was too sloppy. I made a  placemat. I used the round plastic sleeve that protects a large frozen pizza. Cleaned it,lined it with a pretty piece of wrapping paper.The back and front of the plastic aren't the same size,remember it's flat on the cardboard on one side,the other bulges around half inch of pizza.I cut the bulgy side from the center out,imagine a pie all sliced up,left attached at the outside edge.Inserted paper,laid plastic back over it as flat as it would go,used a few tiny bits of tape to hold it.Ironing board,old towel,plastic,another old towel. Ironed on highest setting-no steam,of course! It melted together to make one cohesive whole.The back,although melted together,is messy-I should have cut away some excess plastic. The front looks okay,but boy,is it crinkley! A piece of fabric would have been prettier,and un-crinklely.I think done with more care,this would be nifty.
And someone here recently made beautiful window sheers out of bubble wrap,bias tape,and grommets.This month Readymade online just did almost the same thing-I suppose they could have come up with it on their own,but I wonder.
I'm going to keep checking this thread.It sounds like fun.
2359  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a SHadow Box as a Gift....But where to find trinkets??? PLease Help! on: September 24, 2007 03:43:31 PM
A boating or military magazine might have nifty little pictures to cut out and coat with  a few layers of mod podge or something.Maybe some ocean pages from an old atlas,ect,for background in a few spaces? I've seen buttons with anchors on them,both brass ones,and the big navy ones off a peacoat.Maybe something to reflect where he was stationed? I know you want to stay away from toys,but doesn't monopoly have a battleship piece? Just got up to check mine-it does! Hasbro/Parker Brothers should have a toll free number and website-I remember reading once people always need replacement pieces,and I think they can send you one.What are some things about the navy he remembers fondly?Good luck!
