I don't have a single clue where to get masking liquid in my area so I went with a white crayon as a resist.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Progression of My Art Abilities (WIP) UPDATE 4/8 MOAR PICS! on: April 01, 2009 02:35:28 AM
I am a crafter. I see something I like and I make it. Or something close to it. Sometimes I don't actually get around to finishing a project because I suffer from the worst case of craft ADD ever. So in an effort to get me in the habit of finishing I have committed myself to complete one project everyday for a year. I picked something easy to complete in one day and versatile enough that I could use many different techniques (to satisify my ADD). So I found a few blank boards at the local art supply store and today I created my first piece.



I am planning on documenting my project on a blog I created especially for this purpose. Hopefully I will be posting many more of these projects on this board over the course of the year.

4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! on: March 22, 2009 04:15:57 PM
sorry for butting in but I noticed the pics when I was browsing the most recent with pics. I am having a hard time believing that the first character is beauty and the second is beautiful because they are the same character. The differences in the characters are more because of the "font" (for lack of a better word) of the character. I guess you could maybe say that the first character is in print and the second is more in cursive? either way they are the same character.  And the tattoo pic is the same as the first pic so don't worry, it says beauty.

There is also a Yuzawaya in Yamato (which I love cuz it's right outside the station and you can't miss it). It is also 5 floors of awesome and I spend hours in there. Plus there is a great yakitori stand on your left when you exit the station that is delish and not expensive.

I think it is a great idea. I second the idea for beginner patterns that appeal to those of the male persuasion. I hope to get my son stitching but he is 8 and only interested in cars and guitars.

Mr X stitch, luckily my son is in bed and still asleep or he would beg me to make the ghost rider one. Unfortunately my husband was looking over my shoulder and has demanded I make it anyway. Thank you =/
7  ASIA / Japan / Atsugi on: August 13, 2008 02:58:58 AM
I have just moved to Japan (Day Cool and am living in a hotel for the time being. I am going absolutely nuts without all my craft supplies and there is no place on base for getting good craft supplies. I have been making due the last few days with some tools and stuff from the base store to make paper clip sculptures.

I was wondering if there is any craftster near by or someone who can give me directions to a craft store? And I should mention that I generally suck at directions and don't have a car yet. Yup, I got to walk everywhere until October when my bike arrives. If anyone has any advice for a newbie to japan I am all ears!

I call her my adopted daughter but she is really one of my son's best friends, I just love her to death and have unofficially adopted her. I had thought about the foam tape (I use it for the other things on my wall) but I wanted something a bit more permanent. I thought about attaching ribbon to the letters and just putting a nail on the wall but I want the letters to look like they are floating on the wall.
