372  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / The new Photobucket widget on: November 16, 2007 03:29:23 PM
It looks like Photobucket upgraded/updated the widget.  Is it really slow loading for anyone else?  I'm not liking it. Undecided

I used to be able to doubleclick on the active picture and it automatically copied the IMG code for me.  Now, I doubleclick on it & it says "copied" but it's not actually copying for me.

Is it just me?

Where o' where did my happy Photobucket go? Cheesy

Here are our "scrapbooks" from...

2005 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60346.0

Now, I want to see completed costumes for 2007!!

  • Post homemade creative costumes here, not store bought costumes.   Everyone knows what Hot Topic's costumes look like, we want to see YOURS!  Smiley
  • Feel free to start a thread ALL about your costume and come to this thread to post a photo or two and a link to your detailed thread.  I'd like this thread to be one long photo scrapbook!  (you won't get deleted for "double posting")
  • Post photos and brief descriptions here.  If you don't have a photo...this isn't the thread for your project.  Wink
  • If your costume was inspired by another custome, please post a link & give credit to that person/costume.
  • Post costumes YOU made or are going to wear THIS year, not costumes your brother's sister's doggie, Fluffy wore in 1993.  Cheesy
374  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Melted Lego Lamp on: October 12, 2007 04:13:24 PM
I made this for a wonderful swap partner. Smiley

I made it much the same as this one except this time I used a 16" round cake pan instead of a pizza pan.  I also put a heavy duty glass shot glass in the middle while it was baking so I wouldn't have to drill out the fixture hole when it was done.

  • Preheat oven (375 - 475)
  • Line pan with foil
  • Arrange Legos
  • Bake bake bake
  • Remove pan from oven
  • Remove shot glass from center
  • Immediately lift hot gooey piece from pan by its foil lining and place on "mold."  In this case I used an old lamp shade to mimic the shape.
  • Squish down with oven mitts
  • Let cool & that's it!
375  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Ideas for Phantom of the Opera Bday for 5yr old? on: October 10, 2007 11:14:32 AM
I found another thread with some Phantom ideas, but they were geared towards teenagers.  I'm looking for birthday party ideas for a five year old.  She realllly wants this theme. Cheesy

Here mom is thinking of making it a masquerade, but she has no ideas for decorations or food.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Smiley
376  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / 10/01/07 - Reviews, Recommendations, Dissuasions Board Removed on: October 01, 2007 05:32:46 AM
Hey everyone!

We felt the "REVIEWS, RECOMMENDATIONS, DISSUASIONS" board wasn't as beneficial as we'd like it to be because it was so separate from the other boards & categories.  So as of this morning it's been removed.

All of the threads have been moved to their respective discussion and questions boards.  For example, a thread reviewing a knitting magazine can now be found on the Knitting: Discussion and Questions board.


377  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Yard & Halloween night decorations on: September 21, 2007 09:35:08 PM
I did this to my boyfriend's house my senior year in high school.  We had so much fun with visitors...buhaha.

The whole front yard was a graveyard.  The sign in the front told a funny little story about three of the graves and my friend Mikey's whose head ended up on the table on the front porch.  One of the dead girls roamed around the front yard all evening, too.

Most of the headstones were funny names (Daniels, Jack...Oliver Clothesoff, etc.), but a few were serious.  They were all made out of Styrofoam sheets that I melted, bonded and burned with embedded objects.

This one had a baby doll covered in cheesecloth and particle spray mounted to the top.  I removed her eyes and put a red-filtered Maglight in her body so her eyes lit up red at night.

Here I am! Grin  As trick or treaters walked up the sidewalk to wait in line to go up the stairs to the candy bowl, I laid really still. Grin  Everyone thought I was filled with straw/fake, so at opportune moments, I would reach over and grab an ankle or two in the waiting line.  I heard quite a few vulgarities that night. Cheesy

The little girl in this picture HATED me.  Her dad kept coaxing her & had no idea why she was having a fit.  I reached back and grabbed his ankle about 2 minutes after this photo was taken.  He screamed, kicked me in the back of the head and then apologized profusely. Cheesy

Ane here's my friend, Mikey.  There were two holes in the table.  One for his head (obviously) and another for his hand.  His hand came up through the table and was buried in the candy bowl.  If I didn't get them near the stairs, he got them when they reached in the bowl.  Poor kids (and parents)... Cheesy
378  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / You know you're a Craftster when... (part THREE!) on: September 21, 2007 01:53:58 PM
Once upon a time there was a "You Know You're a Craftster When..." thread.  That thread got realllllly long (380 pages!) and we thought it was time to start fresh. Wink  THEN there was You know you're a craftster when... (part TWO!) and that thread got long, too (200 pages!).

So now that those threads have been locked and merged, here's a fresh start!  You can read the old thread here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50255.0

Please continue with your new... "You know you're a craftster when..." funnies, here...

379  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Not your ordinary guestbook! on: August 30, 2007 06:23:01 AM
After LOTS & LOTS of brainstorming, the Craftster Moderators and I came up with this idea for our wedding guestbook.  I wanted something unique and something that mr.sweets4ever and I would cherish and actually see for years to come.

Once the tiles are baked, the markings permanently bond with the tile!  How cool is that?

After our honeymoon, I'm going to make a mosaic table out of these combined with bits of broken red and black (our wedding colors) glass and findings.  I'll add photos of it when I'm done - wish me luck!

Our guests had so much fun with them!  Some are signatures, some send love and some are AWESOME words of wisdom!

Our flower girl's signature...oh my goodness - SO cute!

Ha ha!

One of my favorite tiles. Cheesy
"Dave" is mr.sweets4ever's cousin and "Jerry" is his Grandpa who passed away just a few years ago.

  • http://www.dickblick.com/zz029/48/ (We used fine tip Scarlet Red or Anthracite Black) Michael's and/or Dick Blick carry these.  You might want to get a handful of these.  Everyone seemed to carry them back to their seats to create their little masterpieces.

380  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Non-floral centerpieces (red/nature theme) on: August 30, 2007 05:35:06 AM
I'm hesitant to post these as I don't have any of the true "action shots" back from the wedding photog yet, but I'm also anxious, so here goes... Grin  I'll add better action shots later, if we get any.

I wanted non-floral centerpieces and something with red.  Our wedding colors were red/black/silver, we were married outdoors in a rose garden and our reception was in a metro park lodge, so something red and nature-inspired seemed perfect.  My inspiration was 100% http://www.rachaelraymag.com/content/33107/

Here are some pictures of one of them on our mock table setup (I laid out a tablecloth, dishes, silverware and centerpiece on our living room floor to see if they would look all right for the big day - yes, I am that crazy - shush).

Supplies for the easiest centerpieces ever:
Branches (Don't run out & hurt live trees.  Take branches from fallen trees.)
Spraypaint (dark red in my case)
E6000 glue

Gather supplies:

Collect branches:

I peeled most of the bark off before I painted mine.  I don't think it was really necessary, but it made me happy.  Spray, flip, repeat.

Hot glue decorations, if desired:
(my hubby picked out the dragonfly - how could I say no?...hehe):
