For you visual people, here's a YouTube video of the dadcando instructions.  Smiley

I don't think you need more costume, I think you should do creepy makeup like this girl I found when I was looking for makeup for my daughter's voodoo doll costume.


Have fun!
3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Eggs are hard! on: March 21, 2009 08:57:57 AM
So I had this *great* idea that I would make felted Easter eggs for the DD's Easter baskets.  Easy, right?  Well, for some reason I simply cannot get the shape of the egg right!!
Anyone have some good hints for me that's worked for them?

A different look, but if the balls are BIGGER (heh...I just said big balls) it would go faster. 

Stone rug #2

I'm with ya'll that the stringing would take so long, I'd get the balls made ahead or do pom-pons
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: can someone help me understand this? on: March 04, 2009 07:24:13 PM
Me, too!  My mom makes mittens from fulled sweaters. She's always referred to them as felted.  And heck, she was an art teacher -- who was I to argue?  So again, top down, I called fulling as felting.  Never actually knew it had a different name until two weeks ago -- thanks Jane Doe. 

Here's MY question (this from a person that can never pronounce skein)...I've only seen it written.  How do you SAY "fulling"

Is it like FULL-ing like you've eaten too much, or is it more like FUEL-ing like you're fueling up at the gas pump?  Or is it a tomato/tomahto thing?

In girl scouts the girls took dryer lint and put them with raffia in the bags oranges come in.  Hung them outside in the spring to help the little birdies build their nests. 
But this board is called CRAFTSTER, so I remembered a piece of artwork in Ripley's Believe it or not made of lint. 

Google dryer lint art -- it's amazing!  Here's one to check out:

I got a random idea last night that maybe a future challenge could be for "manly" felting.  I feel like if I could get inspired to make my hubby something, he might be more forgiving of the roving laying on the family room floor.

My other thought was food.  This is totally selfish, too, as I want to make my niece fake food for Christmas (yes, in '09) and would love to copy be inspired by all of your wonderful ideas.

FUNNY FOOD SIDE NOTE:  so I was working with some brown fulled wool while eating a yummy ice cream chocolate chip cookie sandwich from the Schwan's man.  Wasn't really paying attention and dropped a cookie piece in my lap.  I picked it up and popped it in my mouth.  Oh, wait, that wasn't a chocolate chip cookie, it was wool.  At least it was natural, right?  (I spit it out, don't worry!) 

8  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: Who do you help? on: March 03, 2009 07:46:24 PM
Just a side note on the whole 5013C thing -- my sister almost died (exactly one year ago to the day, to be exact) and honestly, for a while there, we weren't sure if she was even going to live. Once we felt she was in the clear, we started working on that whole pesky 5013C thing...it can take up to a year!  We don't have ours yet, but if you see my other post (look for the cute naked baby) you'll see that I'm requesting items.  I can tell you that we DO have a web site, we DO have an event poster and I put hours, and hours of work into those.  To the last poster's point, asking for hand-made stuff most likely is legit. 

If I was in it for the money, I'd just pyrite stuff on e-bay, ya know? 

It IS a good idea to be careful, and also, to not get overwhelmed, you almost have to stick to one subject, like, orgs that my craftster people support, or orgs for animals, or stroke, or whatever.  I'm one of those people that just can't say no, and I'm learning how to now.
