OMG--- LOVE the whiffle ball sculpture!

My craft supply philosophy I stole from a line from AVP. ''I'd rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.'' But, they were talking about a condom. Tongue

QUESTION...............i'm in Holland/Netherlands.........what are whiffle balls.

I can see them in the picture but are they made  so you make sculpture with them or are they meant for children/animals to play with?Huh

I want some and when I know what they are actually for i might be able to find some online.

Oh yeah nice house and nice things you have .... i like the poster for the SARCASM SOCIETY  very much.

awesome, thanks for all of the positive feedback!  on the whiffle balls, yes, we're going to do a few colored (is that the pc term?) ones, probably just spray paint them since i've never seen any other color than white and bright yellow...and i'm gonna have to slow down on the apartment crafting since i'm running a little low on the moneys right now...but i will post as i make things.   speaking of, i just finished some candle holders that are glass jars (small ones) that i glued chop sticks around (i have TONS of chop sticks) and i just got around to putting candles in them, but man they are a bitch to light...i'll post some pictures this weekend....i think they're pretty nifty...

p.s. just realized this, but i lost my password to my old account and it kept messing up when i tried to have it emailed to me (don't ask why, just didn't) so i started a new account and this is it...

wow your apartment is so unique! i love the wiffle ball sculpture, never would have thought to use them in that way... i love found art Smiley

the stretched fabric idea is genius too... mind if i steal it? i live with my dad who has NO decorating sense at all, our house is boring as crap. it really needs a craftster's touch Smiley

youre awesome!

All of your fabric patterns are great!  I have silk pillowcases on my sofa and they look nice, but it's hard to get them to match texture-wise to any other fabric.  Are all the fabrics the same kind of material?  Did that effect your choice?

Stretched fabric is such a wonderful answer to no moneys and lots of blank wall!

The wiffle ball sculpture is great! I like that you're going to keep adding to it too. Smiley
