That's so totally kickass!  Way cool.  

52  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re:Usernames: Talk about Crafty! on: November 05, 2003 03:44:47 PM
I'm completely uncreative when it comes to making up usernames.  I love lots of other peoples, but everything I try to come up with is lame.  So my username comes from the nickname that my boyfriend gave me, he calls me CottonCandy because I've got cotton candy perfume.

You can definitely use regular stickers, just remember that only the shape will come through.  I only say that because I'm always thinking, "gosh, what a pretty sticker, that would be great for etching!" and then I remember that the prettiness (colors, picture, etc.) are immaterial, only the shape matters.  

I got a package of letter stickers from the dollar store, so definitely check those out.  I also saw some larger letter stickers at Target last night in the adhesives area.  You can also use things like hole reinforcers for dots.

I think your spray can of etching stuff is only a cloudy spray, it's not truly etched into the glass like the etching cream.  But I may be mistaken...

Gosh, I would pay for one like creatingme's.  Seriously, I love the pink kitty with the little X mouth.

comfits  & sly-eye.com, you should check out some of the local thrift stores (St Vincent de Paul, Goodwill, etc.) to see if they've got some good basic sewing machines.   At the local Goodwill I saw some for $12.

Or you can get refurbished ones from places that repair sewing machines.  Usually they have some lying around.

That's how I intend to get my sewing machine, after I finally finish unpacking from moving and I finish off my current projects.  I started knitting a scarf last fall....knitting just takes too darn long!  I crave instant results.

If you can find some decent luggage at a a second-hand store, that would be cute.  Just attach some casters and leave as-is or you can create a little slipcover for it and attach it with velcro.

I'd like to make a storage ottoman but I think I want mine a bit taller than what's shown in this set of instructions.
Maybe I'll follow firehead4's advice and use some sort of drawer and just cover the open side with a hinged lid.
