15481  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: More melted bead goodness! Starry Night ;) on: June 16, 2006 08:19:25 PM
Oh my goodness - replies!  Thank you so much everyone... Smiley  It's great to come online to such positive feedback...ahhh...I love Craftster!  Kiss

One thing that does strike me is that the Fates must really like you.  There's no possible way I could have gotten that tray into the oven...I would have tripped, or my wrist would have popped...something would have caused all  that work to end up everywhere but the oven.

I think this every single time I move a tray!!  The one I carried all the way upstairs for better lighting & was for sure pushing my luck...but nothing! (not that I have said that, I will surely destroy the next one, lol!)

ok.  you mentioned having to put the animals in a different part of the house.

are the fumes that bad? i have 4 cats and  big dog.  and this house is one level.

is this not a good project for people who have pets?

I would say...if you had a bird and you can't get them out of the line of fire, then don't do it.  Smiley  Cats & dogs aren't as sensitive so maybe just get them as far away as ya can...for a little bit.  Smiley  Again, I'm just a paranoid shmaranoid (I make up words as I go along) and don't want to be responsible for anyone's Tweetie kickin' up his heels, lol.  They do smell pretty icky... melting plastic, ya know?

I love it, its gorgous. You are a melting bead addict now aren't you. May i ask why/how you have SOOOOOOO many pony beads? Wink

Please post the coasters, I would love to see them. I don't own pony beads but I think I'm going to take a trip to the craft store.

How will you mount it?

Yes, but at least I admit that I have a problem... Smiley  Melting one only spawns others.  It's such an easy project, it can't be helped!

I have a TON of beads from when my gramma passed away a few years ago.  I went through a period when I didn't want to use them because they were hers & part of a craft room I used to romp around in when I was wee little.  Then I went through a period I used them A LOT, finally they got narrowed down to the fugly pony beads & not so exciting stuff.  But alas - I've found new uses for them!  Smiley

I went to the store the other night & got some faceted & glow in the dark ones to add to the collection.  Smiley

Not sure how I'm going to mount it... gotta ask the boy where he wants it - window or wall.. Smiley  I had left quarter-sized gaps in the upper corners, but they all but totally melted closed.  So, gonna drill 'em out a bit...if it's window, the classic suction cup concept...if it's wall, depending on the room (wall color) I'll use one or two...chains or ribbons.

No need to wait for the sun.  Picasa can clean up photos.  It is a free downloaded program and works great for brighening photos right up!

those photos are post-picasa clean up Smiley  they were worse before!  and i have tried taking pictures directly below a lamp and all sorts of other tricks, but it makes the colors come out all wrong.

well poop.  Wink

i just listed a new necklace! http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=260773

the pictures are crappy, though.  i need the SUN to come out!

Everyone always says that,...but I don't understand why Smiley  Take the shade off of a lamp...or reflect some light with a piece of posterboard.  Smiley  You can also use tissue paper as a diffuser to remove the crazy bright white glare of on-board camera flashes.

I would just section off different questions.


I guess that's what I'm asking... just what are the possibilities for separating different topics in a faq? 

And if the faq is always just a thread, does that mean the only option would be to make a huge long thread, with each message in the thread about a different topic?  (then those looking for a particular topic would have to go through every page of messages to find the part they were interested in?)

Diane B.

There are a variety of options, depending on how creative we can be.  Smiley

I guess it would help me to suggest different formats if I know just how many topics are you considering?  We could make a few threads (but you don't want to hog the board), so it would probably end up as one longer thread.  But it depends on what topics ... do ya have any ideas?

It works.. but you have to put the URL coding in, rather than letting it assume it.  Smiley
Put [ URL ] before your link and [ /URL ] after your link.  (remove the spaces)
Thank you!  Now let me see if it worked by posting this message ...
I guess it works better if I type my own URL properly!  Hopefully it works now.

Whoops!  One more thing... Craftster HTML is different than standard HMTL.  Smiley  It uses brackets [] instead of carrots <>

Thank you titancia & thank you 3beadgirls!!

i'm jumping on the "you are a goddess" bandwagon!!!

one question: did you pixel the painting to know where the beads should go, or are you just that talented to free hand it?

Thank you so much... you are guys are realllly stroking the good old ego!! Smiley  LOL, I wouldn't say I'm just that talented - not at all!  But, yeah, I just freehanded it.  It took just over an hour to set the beads.

Ok, but only after I get the chain!! Cheesy I need some good chain because I'm swapping out the chord on my Titanic coal necklace for a GOOD one... I hate this fake leather chord stuff where you have to size it with those weird knots. Besides, my fabulous necklace deserves better! ^_^

Ha!  Ok, ok.  LOL... I could only imagine what Leah would say if I ever asked that.  lol... she'd tell me to lay off the sauce.  Wink
