1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Good source for painting tutes? on: January 11, 2014 10:52:27 PM
So I've taken a couple of classes at the local Painting With a Twist and love it, but at $35 - $45 a class I just can't take that many.  I'm not comfortable enough in my abilities to just paint, does anyone know of a good, free resource for instructions?  These are the type of things I'm looking for http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/lexington/calendar/I especially like animals and trees.  Foxes are my absolute favorites!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Softee Chunky substitution? on: July 02, 2012 03:36:51 PM
So I'm working on the Lil' Monkey set and ordered some Softee Chunky.  Little did I know they have changed the size of this yarn!! Ugh!  Now the hat is huge (will probably fit my baby when he is about a year old  Undecided ) not to mention it is taking a ton of it to complete the set!  What yarn makes a good substitute because I am ready to just write this project off, frog it and use the yarn for scarves.   Cry
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Need 100% allergen free recipe for dog treats for my Molly girl on: January 06, 2012 07:41:25 PM
OK, Molly is allergic to just about everything.  She can't have any grains, she  can't have chicken, dairy, beef, pork, rice or eggs.  I have found her some treats which are essentially salmon jerky.  She is on a prescription food, and likes it ok.  It is basically fish and sweet potatoes.  The vet said we can also try her on some alternate protein foods like bison, venison and duck.  (read really expensive but she is sooo worth it!)  Anyway, I want to try my hand at making some treats for her because she loves them.  But virtually every treat recipe I have found has one of the above ingredients in it!  I find grain free recipes which have eggs, or egg free recipes with chicken broth.  Argh!!  She really likes/can eat peanut butter, pumpkin and fish.  Does anyone have any recipes for treats that my girl can eat?
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cheap South Beach recipes on: September 21, 2011 04:10:28 PM
So I've been on South Beach for a couple of months and managed to loose about 35 pounds but hit that dreaded plateau, got disgusted and proceeded to munch anything and everything in sight for a couple of weeks.  Now I'm ready to hit it again but I'm not sure I can stomach two more weeks of meat and eggs. Sad  I need yummy recipes to break up the monotony of the meat, cheese and eggs.  Oh, both my student loans and my DH's student loans have recently gone into repayment and we are completely broke.  Let's just say a steady diet of steak for the next two weeks is not in our future.  Anyone out there able to help?
5  UNITED STATES / Kentucky / OMG OMG OMG A new craft store in Frankfort!!! on: July 15, 2011 09:03:54 AM
Michaels has its grand opening in Frankfort this Sunday, and I just got my financial aid residual check.  Ugh there goes all my money!!!!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / GaGa ooh lala pic heavy! on: July 08, 2011 08:57:04 PM
So this is Molly. 

She likes to play dress up, as you can see by what she wore to watch the Royal Wedding.

One Halloween her boyfriend (he's younger, but handsome! She is quite the cougar!) invited her to a Halloween party.  She had nothing to wear, and asked me, her crafty mom to make her something.  She is a big Lady GaGa fan, and told me she wanted a meat dress.  But, since she is a refined British Bull Terrier she didn't want to wear real meat, least it attract the wrong kind of dog attention. She insisted that her dress be made of felt!

Up close!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need crafty minds to help me decorate my craft room... on the cheap! on: July 06, 2011 08:52:24 AM
OK, my husband and I have finally decided who gets to use which spare bedroom.  We have a 4 bedroom house and no kids, just dogs, so we have 2 extra rooms!  He wanted a home gym I wanted a craft room, we agreed I should have the room with the big window! Yay!!! Anyway, it is a medium sized bare room right now, and since I am an unemployed grad student I have 0 funds to decorate with.  I need thrifty ideas for storage, etc.  Right now all my craft supplies are in big ugly plastic totes, I want nice pretty things!  I make some jewelry, crochet, sew and do some painting.  I am so overwhelmed!  Help!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas what to do with cabinets on: September 09, 2009 09:16:22 AM
Ok, my cabinets are ugly and cheap.  you know the cheap fake wood kind of stuff that is in apartments or mobile homes.  Now, my husband is crazy and doesn't want to paint it because he likes the wood look.  But, I can't handle it anymore because it makes the kitchen dark and ugly.  Is there anything I can do that is temporary, that will make the whole thing look better?  I'm thinking along the lines of using starch fabric on walls instead of paint.  I really think once he sees how much better it looks he will back off and let me paint them or whatever.  Help!
