21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: sand - where to find? on: March 31, 2008 03:43:04 PM
Craft stores usually have small bags of sand for this purpose, but, alas, they charge more per pound than Lowes, etc. This fits in well with finding craft items in areas outside of the craft dept.  Cool

Perhaps you can find someone that has a sandbox and is filling it? ...or someone that is doing some yard work (brick sidewalks, etc.) They may love to be offered a buck or two for a bucket   Grin

You could also buy the bag if it is cheaper and then donate the rest of it to a local church, daycare, playground, deserving family.

I made colored sand years ago for an art project for my Kind.s (sand paintings)
I used food coloring to do this. Put a few drops in a bowl of dry sand, mix it up well and then let it dry. You can add more to darken it. It turned out nice and was cheap since we had the sand here for a construction project!

I like the fabric with your couch! The colors go well together. If you have leftovers... maybe throw pillows?
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / searching for Gardening lady "scarecrow" on: March 22, 2008 11:49:56 AM
This is now driving me crazy. I know that I saw it on Craftster. It might have been a link that someone added. Please help me find her!

She was a stuffed "scarecrow" type, and not a wooden cutout. She was different than your typical scarecrow. She resembled an "older" woman bent over gardening. "Not her best side", her butt, was the prominent feature as she bent over working hard on her plants. She was made from an old house dress if I am correctly remembering her. I want to make one, and want to see the picture again to get the idea of how to do it. I think it told of how she was set up.

Thanks for any help!

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: (giant) TOOOOOAST on: March 20, 2008 06:45:36 PM
Oh yeah! You have to do it and post pictures! My daughter and I have always said it looks like a toaster. We have discussed adding bread and the knob to lower the toast. I agree with the foam and some paint to darken the "crust." Not sure how to attach it though. Maybe some straps that run through the windows, and you would need to attach something up higher to be safe. If I drove it, I could picture the whole thing falling off going down the highway Shocked Imagine, being hit by giant toast on the 4 lanes.  ::)The poor officer who has to write it up...and try to stay serious.
26  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is Walmart getting rid of fabric?? on: March 09, 2008 07:40:56 AM
Walmart doesn't care how many are buying fabric/crafts (I guess they don't make enough profit on it.) as long as they are still buying other items. Most people will still shop at Walmart for everything else, and they count on that. I have resolved to avoiding Walmart when I can. I just don't find what I am looking for 99% of the time anyway. I know that my small bit of money won't make a dent in their profits, but I feel better when I support the other stores. I also feel less frustrated since I usually waste my time going there only to realize that I need to go elsewhere to get the other items on my list. I can usually buy the few items that I do find in Walmart at these other stores for around the same price, and I didn't waste the gas going to Walmart first. So it becomes a wash for money spent. I am very proud that I didn't buy one item for Christmas this year at Walmart! ...and I didn't miss it!

I'm from PA and saw a tv piece recently about how The Office made Scranton popular for these items. I think your swap partner would love Scranton items!

Sporting goods is another area: tackle boxes, fishing line, etc. Stores don't think that we are creative enough to realize that the same tools/items are in other areas cheaper, so they charge the higher prices. Hardware is one of my favorite areas!

I love this show! Grin

The site mentioned earlier is a good place to find info. Try the Dunder Mifflin link also. http://www.dundermifflin.com/

It's set up to resemble a documentary about an office staff that is facing down sizing, etc.

It's dry comedy at its best.

Dunder-Mifflin  (an office paper company) in Scranton, PA is the setting.

Anything with Dunder-Mifflin or Scranton on it would be cool.

Schrute Bucks are funny.

They often play practical jokes on each other like putting a stapler in Jello. This would be a great idea for a paper weight (resin, not Jello) for a fan of "The Office".

Maybe just throw some material over it (table cloth like) for now. Something that would coordinate with the seats. You could always paint and then resin interesting items into it later. This would probably take some work and time. I saw a bar table like this before that turned out well.

Nice work on it!
