1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Card Game on: September 24, 2004 10:13:49 PM
I found this neat site with instructions for a crazy card game. I think I am going to make up sets and give them as gifts. I am not going to use index cards for the starters, I am just gonna run card stock thru the printer and cut the sheets down to size but I will probably send a package of uncut index cards with it. Should be a fun project! I love designing things on my PC! I am also going to jazz up the instructions and make sure to encourage people who get the cards to go to the website and tell them how they liked the game!

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Xmad Kid Craft idea and question on: September 01, 2004 10:16:33 AM
 I babysit for my 2 cousins. Boys 6 and 7. Last year for christmas we looked at different pictures on the internet by pop culture artist Andy Warhohl. Then as an ativity/craft we made some art of our own. I took a good picture of the boys, had it made in to black and white four up copies at Kinko's and then let the boys use crayons to "paint" over there pictures. The results were fabulous and the kids even paid attention. A few weeks later when I was bringing them home from school, the youngest one is thrilled to see an Andy Warhohl picture in a store window. ( yes it was the Marilyn one lol).
After we colored 7 pages ( each boy colored 2 squares) I ran to the Dollar tree and bought frameless frames. The whole project cost me 10$ and we gave 7 beautiful handmade gifts. I made a sheet of labels that explained what we had done and Merry Christmas to stick on the back and of course, the boys put their signatures on them)
Ok... here is the question... what can I do this year to at least be as impressive as we were last? It would help if we got to explore some other artists work or if was at least educational. Any ideas?
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help Me! what is she talking about? on: August 30, 2004 11:07:01 AM
The very first time she made the bowls I actually found it as a kit in the crafts dept.  The kit came with 5 small bags of different colored beads, and 2 aluminum pie pans (8 inch I believe) & instructions.  It was so basic and simple I decided next time instead of paying $10.00 for that kit, I'd just buy the beads seperate because I usually have those pie pans at home anyway.

I got this post from a lady on another forum (non-craft related) She can't remember anything else about it and I have NEVER heard of it before. Has anyone else? I would like to see these crazy bowls... make them... the kits makes plates or bowls by melting plastic beads... she doesn't know what kind she buys now either... *sheesh*

Anyone know what she is talking about? PLEASE tell me !!!

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I need a gnome hat.... on: August 10, 2004 06:58:01 AM
I just had the greatest idea that my boyfriend (6'5" 450lbs) should be a lawn gnome for Halloween.... I have looked everywhere for a hat and cant find what I think is traditional... not floppy and pointy but up tall and curvy... ya know? Well I think I can crochet it and felt it for a good effect. I looked for patterns too haven't found anything , so I thought I would ask for your generous help. Any ideas? If I don't figure this out he will be a hula girl with a 5 foot tall afro wig.... Please... Help Me!  Shocked
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Origami on: August 08, 2004 09:39:07 AM

Beautiful done with lots of tutes! Hope I am not repeating here!  Cheesy
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Magnets and Wallpaper Samples on: August 07, 2004 09:19:16 PM
Anyplace that makes magnetic signs and vinyl banners has great scrap.... sometimes you can talk them out of it sametimes they sell it dirt cheap. The magnetic sheets have painting or vinyl on them but they still work fine and sometimes come in bigger pieces then I can find them at the craft store.
The vinyl is sticky on one side and is alot like thick contact paper. If you are real lucky they will have some letters and things cut into them...

My other favorite is wall paper books. Everyplace I have ever gone is glad to be rid of the discontinued books and I use the papers for everything. They are great for oragmi boxes because they are stiff. The vinyl papers make great placemats. and often they have matching cloth swatches. I know I don't need to tell you all what the possibilities are. ( Just remember that wall paper may not be acid free)
