3571  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Fingerspelled ASL cookies on: March 25, 2008 07:28:30 PM
Those are really, truly awesome!  I learned ASL alphabet about 30 years ago when a deaf girl attended my grade school.  I don't remember all of it, but I remembered enough to go through it and spell out R-I-L-E-Y and i love you.  Anyway, I have a metal hand cookie cutter and I might have to do something like this with it! 

Here's a link to a cookiecutter site with a few different metal cutters, including one in the shape of the "I love you" sign

Don't forget we can also do the "evil eye" sign and other finger gestures with these... for grown ups!

You could use the Krylon spray paint for plastic. If you masked off all the controls and indicators, it would still look just like a coffee maker, only like one from a fancy kitchen shop in a decorator color.  Since you're not heating it up, it should work just dandy on a coffee maker. 

Does your fish have a coffee-related name?

Crafty Remnants and Paraphernalia (CRAP)

That has got to be one of the best new craft terms I've heard for quite a while! You totally made my morning!  Grin

Thanks!  I came up with it when I was telling a friend about trying to clear out my basement "bonus" room to make it into a crafting space/studio.  I mean, most of that stuff is good stuff... to someone.  Maybe I just don't "need" all of it.  So it's crap and it's CRAP.

Anyway, I'm fine with receiving a jar that has some stuff that's definitely not my style, because maybe it will inspire me to grow or I can give it to someone who would really like it and keep the smile going, you know?
3574  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: A jar of mini whimsies Swap - Sign-ups are OPEN! on: March 25, 2008 11:39:49 AM
I have found a lovely 500ml glass mayonnaise jar today...it's all plump and would look super cute filled with goodies.

I'd like to send glass.....but what are the chances of it withstanding the postal services  Undecided



If it's packed well, probably pretty good.  Overseas shipping my increase the likelihood of damage, just for the number of times the package will be handled and such, but people ship things much more fragile than jars all the time.

I'm already getting swap anxiety!  What if my Crafty Remnants and Paraphernalia (CRAP) isn't to my partner's liking?  I've already starting digging around and finding stuff, but only to go through after we get our partners.

Hysterical!  Great job on the details of the diorama helping to tell the story!

I decided a while ago not to fight my curls and waves, so I'm excited to see how yours looks in the morning.  I have a TON of coarse hair and even w/o a ponytail it takes 8-12 hours to dry naturally most of the year (in the Pacific NW) and about 6 hours in the summer.  I wonder if this would be hopeless.

YKYACW you're making gel candles for the first time (turned out wonderfully by the by  Grin) and some of the VERY hot wax drips onto your finger while you're pouring it from the pan to the glass jar, but instead of putting the pan down and caring to my finger, I continue pouring the wax into the jar, until i finish. Make sure the wick is standing up straight, and then take the wax off my finger only to find a small blister.

Darn tootin!  A finger will heal, craft project might not!
3579  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Betting on some zzz... on: March 24, 2008 01:52:08 PM
Ooo-ooo!  These are awesome!  Such a nice balance of images and words and the stitches are so tidy.  I've been looking around for some shamrocks and clovers for a little pillowcase embroidery project of my own.  You're getting bookmarked!

YEY! WomanMonster & boxerrcurl!  Post 'em when you make em!  I even thought of putting a cat toy in there for her sister.
