1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Re: Craft Challenge #50 Peanut Butter Transport - Due May 1 - May 7 on: April 02, 2010 12:51:03 PM
I travel about in a macrame plant pot with little wheels, so i will be making one of those with peanut butter. for those of you struggling to model using peanut butter, i find crunchy is best, and if you use a rolling pin to make long strips then leave it to dry in the sun for 48 hrs, you can knit with it, or weave it, or leave it an extra day and you can pretty much stack it like mechano   Grin
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: THE GENERIC BOYFRIEND GIFT THREAD: A How-To! on: January 26, 2009 11:28:05 AM
My hubs loves jigsaw puzzles, and sometimes if he gets absorbed in a puzzle I feel a wee bit neglected. last Christmas I came up with something to solve the problem. A friend had done a series of nude paintings of me for a life-drawing class, so I had one of them made into a 500 piece puzzle - the plan being that when hubs starts to get distracted by his new jigsaw puzzle it will quickly re-divert his attention back to his neglected wife ^_^ It worked - he NEVER manages to finish the puzzle. As soon as he starts to fill out my curves, the puzzle is abandoned and I get the attention that I desire ^_^


3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Deerchk, something lost from the woods on: September 22, 2008 02:26:50 PM
It looks like a character straight out of John Connolly's The book of lost things. Have you read it? I bought it because Robert Ryan did the cover illustration and I love his work. It is an eerie story about a boy who loses his mother, and about stories that want to be told.  it's a very dark and captivating book about the boy's journey, and some of the story characters that he meets along the way are very similar to your creation. If you haven't already read it, you should - it gave me lots of inspiration (and freaked me out a bit too) ^_^, keep up the beautiful work,

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Help me out here... manly man jeans on: May 08, 2008 10:47:54 AM

I have used a cheese grater on mens jeans. The different sized holes give slightly different effects. the grater with the fine holes worked best if I remember correctly. Are you going to post the finished results up here? I'd love to see what you do.

ooooh fun! I want one, but have dubious knitting skills. Maybe i'll start with an easy one - like sodium - just one little yellow line i think. i like.

did you photoshop or edit the pictures or were they like that when you took them? if they were like that when you took them then wow, i need to get me that kind of camera.

HelloSUNSHINE, wish I could say they were unedited! I didn't do loads to them though - just enhanced the colour and contrast a tiny little bit, and altered the hue very slightly on a couple so that the colours matched better in each series. I put a very slight dark vignette on the last two.

doh!  i just reread the title of the thread and answered my own question.  i'm kinda daft today......  anyway, how do you like the 350 D? 

I love it! Really light weight and easy to carry around so great for holidays and general use, but also can produce v. professional results. I've noticed a of a few pro wedding photographers who use it some of the time. Performs amazing in low light. Standard lens that comes with it not all that great, but advantage of canon for me is lots of friends and family use canon cameras so we can swap and share lenses and accessories. If I could go back in time tho i'd probably buy without the lens and get a better one from the word go.

i think you and your sister look gorgeous in yellow!
so fresh and light!

yum... i want a yellow dress now!

The sky seems to be forever grey at the moment, and it's constantly drizzling and a little bit chilly. Miserable weather calls for colourful clothes - wearing a yellow dress definitely took the edge off the yukky sky. I am prescribing myself more yellow clothes for the sake of happiness until the weather improves!

Also, I'm really touched by all these comments. I don't tend to have much confidence when it comes to my creative stuff so your comments are a real encouragement to keep it up. If anyone else does anything vaguely similar I'd love to see the results!

thanks again,

Thanks for the comments people Smiley

I was going to link this thread to my brother, but having read your comments I may hold off - I want his head to fit through the door next time he visits!! hehe ^_^ Though I agree, he is a rather good lookin' chap.
