3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: old crappy beads, new crappy beads... on: February 06, 2008 01:26:51 AM
Have you ever seen a simple crochet beanie hat? It would be really easy to slip a bright coloured bead on every few stitches - you could even make a dangling fringe! In dayglo bright rainbow colours this would be really adorable. You can use them to add trim to regular clothes...like gloves. A pair of mittens would look cute with a row of cherry shaped beads hanging off of them or such. Ok, totally huge craft, but if you got a simple short sack dress, you could string rows of beads off it to make it look like a flapper dress. If you have interesting beads, and lots of smaller boring beads, you can put them on wire, with the interesting bead in the center and equal amounts of small beads on each side and then feed the wire back through to make rings. You can make 'cluster' bead bracelets by getting a regular chain bracelet and hooking beads onto it in clusters to make a chunky colourful style. You can crochet arm warmers (same as a hat). You might even be able to make kaleidoscopes. You can melt down beads into candy molds to make new beads. If you have uniform sized beads, like pony beads, you can find tons of crafts by searching for "pony bead crafts". The only difference would be the final size. You can even make shoulder bags out of pony beads. You could braid or wrap the pretty ones onto a regular wig to make beaded falls. You can make door curtains. You can put them in a gumball machine and let people buy them through the machine. You can decorate pet leashes by sewing them on in patterns. ^_^ That's all I can think of right now. Don't worry, I totally know what it feels like to hit a creativity road block...wish I could figure out something to do with all these paperclips!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: No WINDOW behind my kitchen SINK... any ideas on what to put there?? on: February 06, 2008 12:24:27 AM
Stick a nail right in the center top of the space. Buy a whole bunch of cheap scenery paintings/photos/artwork and hang one there. Every month switch it out for a new scene.
You could also do what my Nana did. Her sink is set away from the wall, so there's a bit of room between you and the wall there. She put up an open curio shelving display, and on each of the little shelves, she put a little knick-knack. When it got full she'd take one out and put it in her BIG display cabinet or give it to us kids to make room for more! ^__^
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: 100% cocoa butter...holy crap its solid on: February 06, 2008 12:09:02 AM
Hullo! Where does one buy 100% cocoa butter, and was it expensive? I could certainly use some. Does it work on old scars? Would it be too much trouble to ask for step-by-step instructions on how to prepare cocoa-balm/cocoa-lotion?
Thank you much!

Ok! So, does anyone know what happens when you put lemon juice andchamomile teaandcoffee in average light brown hair? ^_^ I ask because I've got slightly mixed hair (English/Irish/American Indian apparently). It's an even shade of light brown, but it has scattered auburn/blond/black strands and I would like to bring out ALL of them. >.> And I'm a scaredy-cat when it comes to trying new stuff with my hair. I like to know what it's going to do first! I just read on this page about hot oil treatments for hair, I'd never heard of that before, and I'm going to try olive oil/honey together - I'll let you all know how it turns out.
Note! To People Who Are New To Regular Brushing
If you are just starting with regular nighttime brushing (or whenever you do it) make sure to de-tangle your hair first by running your fingers through it until all the knots are gone. Then take a natural bristle brush and brush from scalp to tips until your hair starts to feel more sleek (or non poofy for you curly-mops). Make sure you do this all while standing, preferably in the bathroom. If you don't regularly brush your hair, de-tangleing it will free a lot of loose hair that had gotten tangled...In other words, you shed. Don't do this in your bed like I did the first time! ^_^; It looked like a me-coloured cat had rolled on my pillow, and I had to wash my pillow case to get the tiny hair lengths out (from split ends).
Question! I read a lot of good ways to help get rid of back acne, soaps and moisturizer ectera, but how am I supposed to reach my back to put them on? >.> *Not that bendy* Thanks!
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Jello Hair Dye on: February 05, 2008 09:52:14 PM
Hi! I'm looking to dye my hair pink using sugar free Jello. No bleach. I poked around the web and I found two different methods - one using two packets jello and one dollop conditioner and then rubbing in your hair and leaving, and the other boiling/heating jello in half the recommended amount of water and then dipping your hair in. I was wondering if anyone could contrast the two methods for me.

My hair is light brown.
I will not be bleaching my hair.
My hair tends to be dry.
My hair takes colour well.

Also, I heard that I should put vaseline around my hair line to keep the colour from dyeing my skin, will this make me break out?  Should I wash my hair with shampoo before dyeing, or should I apply the dye dry? How do I keep the colour from staining my skin when I rinse?

Thank you very much for your help!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Paint on pants on: September 01, 2007 05:18:29 PM
While painting I got craft paint all over my jean pants, and it looks pretty! Does anyone know how I can set it so the paint doesn't wash off?
The paint is Apple Barrel acrylic paint, and I have already let my jeans dry extensively.

I posted this on the Clothing - help board and was directed here.

I wonder what settingI should use if I were to iron over my pants? Wouldn't that just melt the paint?
