1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / New Twist to Grannies Daughters Swap? on: September 06, 2013 08:12:39 AM
Just starting to think out loud and wanted some thoughts. 
What about where you would take a pearler bead pattern, and turn that into a center block for a afgan?  So a pattern is picked, the colors divided up, and then each makes all the people in the swap that color.  (Thinking would have to be evened out, so the person with the main color did not get stuck with a ton and the one with black gets 10 to make)
Then these could be made into a center point or a block for the afgan. 
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Advice for border colors? on: August 11, 2013 07:08:56 PM
I am in the process of making this for my 17 year old daughter.  I created the pattern.. but I am stuck on what to border it.  I was thinking chevron, but it may be a nightmare to keep straight!  All thoughts are welcome.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Nook Color Cover on: December 10, 2011 06:15:14 PM
My sister and I went together to get my younger sister a Nook Color for Christmas.  We were worried that her 15 year old would take it over... so since my neice HATES ladybugs, I made a special holder for it!  After searching online everywhere, I did not like any of the holders for the Nook, and did not like the high prices either!  

The gift shop at the hospital was giving away books the day my mom had knee replacement surgery, and I scored this book for free!  What a funny title for my sister!

Inside view of the book... see all the wonderful ladybugs?  HAHAHAHA....  My sister has a ladybug sticker on her phone to keep my niece off of it!
Questions or comments welcome!

Side view of the book when it is closed.  I also added a "bookmark"!
Sure do hope she enjoys it!  We have also ordered a ladybug skin to put on the Nook, but it has not made it yet.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Pom Pom's Question on Structure on: November 14, 2011 09:59:17 PM
I saw on a craft show where they took Pom Poms and strung them together with yarn to make a scarf.  I would like to use the same idea, but make it into a rug or wall hanging.  Has anyone tried this? 
I envision using a pattern like you would use for pearler beads, but pom poms instead...
What do you think?

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Stamping on metal on: June 21, 2011 07:36:14 AM
I have bought some stamping blanks, and the alphabet stamps.  (Harbor Freight)  What is the best surface to stamp on?  I used wood, not to happy with my results.  I am also using a small hammer, maybe I need to go with a bigger hammer?
Any thoughts on what works well for you? 
I also tried on a washer, but maybe I had one that was too thick...
Thanks for any and all help!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Homespun Yarn on: February 16, 2010 08:59:05 PM
I would love to buy some homespun yarn off etsy.. but it is mainly listed in yards.  I would like to make a scarf, and do not have a clue as to how many yards it would take.  The yarn I buy is sold in grams, and the stuff on etsy is sold in ounces.  (used a converter free online...) but why would it be sold in a diffrent way than what people normally buy it?
So... about how many yards is in a "nnormal" skien of yarn? Or about roughly, how many  yards are in a scarf?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Metal to metal? on: January 02, 2010 09:15:33 AM
I am working on a necklace, and I need to attach a metal bead to a metal part.  I tried Gorrila super glue, and it would not stick.. what do you suggest I use? 
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Cute Halloween ATC Card on: September 27, 2009 08:17:57 PM
I am ready to post a ATC!  I guess it woul be mixed media.. the card is spray painted... two colors, then there is a coffin made from a cereal box... painted.  Then on the inside, I drew a cute mummy and outlined it with a marker.   It is going off in the mail in the moring... what do you think?  All comments are welcome, as I am new to ATCs...
I took the photos outside, in my front yard, about 9 pm!
Thanks- Linda

The outside....
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Newbie.. questions to start.. on: September 18, 2009 03:39:42 PM
I am having trouble locating the little plastic sleeves that the cards go into.  (Ok, until I got 2 in the mail, I did not know they went into little sleeves!) 
Do you have a favorite place to order them? 
Do I need a number on the back, if they are not a series? 
Do you like a printed out back, or hand written?  I know this is a personal choice, but what do you prefer? 
Sorry for the questions..
