21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: Darwinism Valentine on: February 02, 2009 06:56:19 PM
I think that is the cutest Valentine's catch phrase I've seen since "it's prime time to be your Valentine" (which is a mathy one). Did you come up with the line yourself? I think it's extra great since Darwin's birthday is only a few days before Valentine's day!
22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Crepe paper flower on: February 02, 2009 06:49:46 PM

As a Valentine's Day fundraiser for the Nova Scotia Epilepsy Association, the undergraduate neuroscience society decided that we should sell crepe paper flowers. They are super easy to make and seem to turn out well regardless of skill level. The image featured above is my first attempt, and that's without ever having used floral tape before. They are pretty fun to make and don't even take very long. I doubt it would be hard to whip up a bouquet in time for Valentine's Day.

And just to give good old Martha credit, the original idea came from her site Wink

I'm totally in love with wall decals too and even though I have a job, I do find that they are quite pricey for what you get. I think I will definitely have to try your way once I move out of my current apartment in a couple months.
24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Which is your favorite cookbook? on: January 23, 2009 10:21:32 AM
My all time favourite cookbook (and that of my mom and aunt) is the New Canadian Basics Cookbook by Carol Ferguson. The best thing about it is that for every recipe, she includes at least 3 variations and some substitutions. It also has a HUGE range of recipes in it from simple things like what parts of the cow are which cuts of meat to Viatnemese spring rolls to turkey stuffing and everything in between (including some awesome hummus and bruschetta recipes). The only awful thing is that it is currently out of print, but I'm hoping that the publishers will realize that that is a mistake and reissue it Cheesy

This is the pattern. I changed just a couple things: I erased the letters so I wouldn't have to flip it over, I shortened the small flaps so that it would fit better on a sheet of 8.5x11" cardstock, and I made the lines very faint so that they wouldn't show up on the folded box.

I hope this helps!

I agree with all the previous posts, your journal is very professional looking. My favourite part is how "thai" the colours are. Did you put something underneath the fabric or is it stretched directly over cardboard?

These are the boxes my boy and I made to package the shortbreads we baked as Christmas gifts for our friends. I found a basic pattern online, enlarged it, added the text, then printed it on card stock. Mike cut them out and then I scored the creases and glued them together. They were fairly simple, but I definitely would not be suggesting making them as favours unless you are very hardcore. They looked very nice all packaged up though, and the shortbreads were enjoyed by all Smiley

Wow! I love your digital images and the ones taken on the vintage cameras. Where did you get the film for those? I actually have an old brownie, but it is in serious need of repair and I've never been sure of whether it was "worth" fixing (in the sense that I'm not sure what film I would use in it and if I could even get my hands on some). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Light-up Dove Ornament on: December 05, 2008 12:15:06 PM
That's great! I think it would be a neat little project to do with kids who aren't all into the usual painting and glitter. Though I'm wondering if it would be possible to get clear LEDs, as the red ones look a little demonic Wink (not in a bad way, I just think it adds to the cuteness)
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: fulled flower on: November 13, 2008 11:12:32 AM
Ahh, I did not know that "fulling" was the correct term for felting something knit. I may be fulling a hat that I am currently in the process of knitting, it depends on how giant it ends up being Smiley I could definitely see your flower being attached to a hat or a wool coat.
