21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: "Girlies" Sleepover on: January 17, 2006 11:38:48 AM
Oh! Do some homemade facial stuff (like mashed up avocado: check out the beauty boards) or make bath bombs or something girly like that. Paint toenails, gossip, apply self tanner, etc. Have everyone bring their caboodles full of stuff to play with: you will have plenty of fun things to share with each other!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: corset from sheet with hemp boning on: January 15, 2006 03:09:46 PM
Ive been wondering about making a corset myself... Did you cut each panel individually, or is it one piece of sheet fabric with the hemp sewn into it? It looks beautiful. I think you have just seriously inspired me.
23  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Portrait Class - Austin? on: January 10, 2006 10:41:46 AM
Assuming it isn't scheduled for when I'm working, I would definitely drive up from San Antonio. Keep us posted!
24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Stir-fry!!! Need recipe... on: January 08, 2006 01:01:01 PM
That's pretty much how I make stir-fry too. My only hint is to make your wok/skillet as hot as possible. If you don't, you could end up with a soggy mess.
25  COOKING / Dessert / Re: donut recipe ? on: January 08, 2006 12:46:53 PM
Ive never made actual donuts, but I have made fake donuts.

Get a can (tube) of biscuts- not the flaky kind, just the regular old cheep ones. Cut a hole out of the middle of them (i use one of those things you stick into an orange that is supposed to help you drink directly out of them... i don't know if anyone else knows what I'm talking about).

Fry these in veggie (or your fav.) oil. You will have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your pot. Flip them around till they are floating on top and yummy looking on both sides. Be careful: do not burn youself... it will ruin your donut experience.

Pull out the donuts as they are done, shake off any extra oil and toss them into a paper bag with some powdered sugar inside. Fold the top of the bag down and shake around till they have the amount of sugar you like on them. Repeat 'till you have as many donuts as you want.

These aren't particularly good left over, so be sure to eat all of them! And these obviously aren't good for you, so watch out.
26  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Eyemakeup on: January 08, 2006 11:19:19 AM
I have really bad skin, and I find that when I use quality makeup, everything seems to stick around longer and generally looks much better (note: pricey does not mean quality- be ware!). I have the same problem with my eyemakeup: it looks great when I put it on, but by the time I make a check in the mirror at the bar, everything has gone to pot.

Benefit makes some awesome products. They aren't cheap, but if you have a particular problem you need help with (jiggly arms? no problem! they make a product called jiggle gel just for that issue), this is a great place to look. I could wax on and on about how wonderfull almost all of their stuff is, but: back to your issue. She-Laq is like a finish for your eyes. It comes with a bunch of brushes: just put it on over your makeup and it keeps it in place awesomely. http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/benefit/product.asp?pd=598&pg=1

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / About yarn choice... on: January 07, 2006 10:30:34 AM
I am not especially new to knitting, but I have never really branched out much from scarves/hats, and have always just made things up based on what I had on hand. Now, however, I have my heart set on Knitty's Candy sweater(http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTcandy.html). I need advice about how to find the right yarn online. I have spent time browsing various sites, but just wind up confused.

I can't find the brand that is listed in the pattern, but I have a feeling I wouldn't be able to afford it even if i could. What is an easy way to know that another yarn will be a good substitute? I know that the gauge listed here is 18 sts/25 rows = 4", but how do I know what category of yarn that is (ie: worsted, etc)?

The internet can sometimes be totally overwhelming: thanks so much for y'alls help.

I would be totally down for this, but I'm not eligible for swaps for another week or so. I'm 8th generation Texan, live in South Texas (um, it's like 80 degrees right how), have a Texas tattoo on my butt. If anyone needs idea help, PM me!
30  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: 41 lbs of pop can tabs! on: December 28, 2005 10:47:37 AM
You could make a whole chain mail outfit- Like a viking lady costume for next halloween, complete with horns and a flask. Or just to wear around the house.
