1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help...old fashioned picture framing query on: May 24, 2007 03:52:02 AM
I don't hold out much hope of anyone being able to help me as i have SEARCHED and SEARCHED the internet (and I'm usually pretty good at searching!!!).

I have some old pictures of my grandparents from during the war that my mum gave me. They were framed in glass surrounded by some sort of papery black tape. My mother, in her wisdom, decided to take them apart to get them copied then had someone reframe them. The person has used what in the UK we call gaffer tape (black shiny plasticky tape that is really sticky on the back and leaves an awful sticky residue on stuff). I didn't really realise and hung them on my wall but the glass has started to slip out and the tape is coming away. Now upon inspection this tape looks really tacky anyway aswell as all coming apart and the framing guy seems to have also trapped some "foreign bodies" between the frames too!!!

Unhappily the guy has retired and disappeared so even if I wanted to I could not take them back there.

I REALLY want to sort them out myself but cannot find the correct sort of tape to use. Has anyone any ideas?Huh?
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Heads up Hull crafters!!!!!!!! on: April 24, 2007 02:36:32 AM
Just wanted to let you Hull crafters know about a store I visited yesterday in Hull. It's called "The Range" and is on Clough Road. It was GREAT!!!!!! From outside it is kinda like a garden centre but there was a specific large-ish corner dedicated to crafts. It was like a mini Hobbycraft with LOADS of beads, findings, scrapbooking stuff, big bags of felt, SHRINKY DINK PAPER!!!!, acrylic paints, fabric paints, canvases, glass paints...the list goes on...it was brilliant and the prices seemed reasonable too.

Also went into the big Boyes on Hessle Road and they had a fairly good range of stuff...some nice camo fabric and some with flames on it aswell as loads of other stuff...different lace,ribon,trimmings, lots of jewellery findings and stuff.

Get down to "The Range" girls!!!!!! Grin
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Recipe for "Knotty Boy Cooling Moisture Spray" on: March 31, 2007 06:01:28 AM
Anyone tried making this?Huh?...the main ingredients are purified water, witch hazel and peppermint oil plus grapeseed and hemp oil.

I'd like to make a simplified version to spray on to my itchy scalp and wanted some possible quantities to try. I have the first three ingredients but don't want to have to start buying expensive oils( I already have the peppermint ) Any thoughts?Huh

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Protective tattoo machine bag??? on: March 28, 2007 05:18:48 AM
I want to make some small bags/pouches to keep our tattoo machines in. I have looked around the forum trying to find some sort of idea/guide I could adapt but cannot quite find what I'm after.

It needs to be quite padded to protect the machines and square in shape with some kind of fastening...was thinking velcro for the easiest.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?Huh?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Easy girl friendly bookshelves??? on: January 27, 2007 05:06:59 AM
I have searched (here and google) but cannot find what I want. I am wanting to put some kind of bookshelves in my living room as I have a LOT of books and at the moment they are taking up the space where my "craft corner" needs to be!!!

I REALLY don't wanna be sawing up bits of wood etc and want something that stands on the floor due to the flimsy nature of my walls. My bf said something about students in the seventies using breeze blocks and wood but I cannot find any images to see how this would look. Has anyone any suggestions/pics to help me?Huh? Huh
