Haha!  Well, that makes a lot more sense.   Cheesy

Thanks!  What a comfortable-with-his-manhood boyfriend you have.  Or something.   Wink

I've not heard of Craft Electric, either.  I see you're in the Chuck Palahniuk swap, so you've probably read his travel guide to Portland... there might be some good things in there for you to see, too.
3824  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Halloween "Apothecary", "Soothsayer's Den" & "Haunted Tavern" Party - Ideas? on: September 14, 2008 09:02:15 AM
Last year I got to "help" decorate for The ManFlesh's Halloween party and I did a few things you might be interested in.  He has an actually entryway that's only 1 story and all the walls are wood panels or wood built-ins.  First I replaced the light with a black light then I COATED that entry with spider webs, layers and layers and layers of spiderwebs - the kind you buy in a bag stretched really thin.  Then I had some baby dolls dressed in costumes (got really lucky to find such in the goodwill bins).  They were ratty and one said different things when you pressed her hands, feet, etc. that were super creepy in the context ("do you like my pretty dress" - that kind of thing).  Anyway, I wrapped them in layers of web with just parts poking out as though they'd been wrapped up for spider-lunch and hung them in the webs. (I got the doll idea here on craftster)  I also did the Martha Stewart spider egg sacks with a Styrofoam ball in a white stocking covered with plastic mini-spiders.  Finally I put dozens of different plastic and rubber spiders in the web, including hairy tarantula types and glow in the dark ones.  Finally, I hung clear upholstery thread from the door- and archway so that it felt like walking through spiderwebs.

I believe that if there are enough of any one type of thing it becomes sinister.  So clump together your rats, bats, spiders, bones, etc. 

I want to make something like this that I saw online the other day, too.

Have you ever tried to seal with resin?  I really want to do some John Derian-style decoupage on wine and martini glasses and the one time I saw one of his glasses is person, I could swear it was resin-coated.  Of course I'm all worried about the final product and ignoring the obvious challenges of working a rounded surface and that little thing called composition.   Undecided

Whew!  Like so many other things the bad guys make it harder on everyone!  When I was a renter, I was a good one, but all the bad renters meant bad things for the good ones.  I'm a specialty contractor and all the bad, late, flakey contractors make it harder for those of us who are honest, punctual and communicative.  Ugh!

I hope I didn't come off as suggesting you were trying to get others to do anything, because I don't think that and didn't mean to imply such.  I think that your anger and frustration is completely justified and however you respond to etsy is valid for you and none of my business.  I'm sorry if I came off any other way.  I'm SO rooting for you to get your money back and be done with this nightmare!

that's adorable, I have some Care Bear playing cards that would be great for that...

Thanks!  Those would be great!

Brilliant!  You're so creative to see that frame and matting as a slot machine!

I do get on a kick and now I see playing- and game cards in terms of their potential for mini notebooks.  I've run out of reclaimed notebook paper, though and it's a crummy time to find school supplies at the thrift store since school just started here. So, it'll be a little bit before I can do more - and I do have more styles of thrifted cards, believe me.
