Thank you for your positive feedback ladies!

I saw some great coasters at Anthropologie and have been meaning to make my own. 
I can't find them on the website but here's some similar ones:  http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jsp?catId=3&itemId=14553
Jillie - Wow! Those are great! I may have to make a mess and try those out. If it works out I'll send you one.  Grin
1402  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Decoupaged wine bottles...for a good cause...at the cost of my carpet on: May 29, 2007 10:07:23 PM
Thank god for a miscellaneous category!
I would like to proudly show off the bottles created by me and my walking team (we are doing the 3-Day 60 mile Breast Cancer Walk). We are hoping to get donations for these bottles to reach our fundraising goals of $2200 each! (I'm still new so can't post pics yet though...so follow the link if you are so inclined.)

So, it started with red wine spilled all over the table, wall, chair, and carpet...these are my friends springing into action [image blurred to protect their identity Tongue Apparently this was an important part of our process.]:


Materials while in the process:

We ended up using Tacky Glue (because there was no Elmer's to be had in my town.) I did a mix of 50/50 water and glue. I believe a fellow crafster recommended submerging the entire image into the glue so I did that, coating the back and front with good success. From experience and probably a "duh", I definitely recommend some pre-planning for I kept having these tiny gaps occur and trying to find an image for *that* space with glue ALLLL over my fingers was a big challenging. Cheesy

Here's our finish project, my two are the yogi bottles in the front:

(sorry for the glare)

Love to hear what you all think and any other suggestions you'd recommend that would be easy for a group to make to get donations for...I have a ton of magazines, fabric and a whole room of art supplies. Probably only one of us would really claim true artistic ability though. Tongue Suggestions?

Thanks!
1403  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: What my husband and I made each other for Christmas on: December 27, 2006 11:44:49 AM
Those ROCK!
My boyfriend crotcheted me a scarf...his first attempt. It was fascinating to watch him work...he held the hook straight up. Cheesy
Homemade gifts truly are the best! Smiley

Wow! You have a great eye, of course, it doesn't hurt that your niece is absolutely adorable. Nice pics! I love close-ups! Great use of black and white and sepia too!!
Congrats on those awesome pics!
1405  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: can anyone help me with tihs blur of WORDS on: December 26, 2006 01:21:11 PM
WAHOO!!! I am *just* learning to crotchet too and that site ROCKS!!!

Good luck faery! I've made about five wonderful to ugly scarves. I would recommend using basic yarn while you are still getting used to the technique. Stuff with multiple threads involved gets confusing quickly...but then there is always knitting too. Cheesy

Great change (and good topic choice!), nice idea about the paper with the ship too! ROCK!
All the items in my spare bedroom of crap will soon have a purpose! WAHOO!
