11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / felted soap?!? on: July 07, 2004 10:24:20 AM
i just saw the coolest soap ever!  this woman makes goats milk soaps, and covers them with a thinnish layer of felted wool.  they are gorgeous, and very functional.  i didn't get a chance to pick her brain, so i'm wondering if anyone knows the technique?
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / linen pants rip repair? on: May 05, 2004 05:14:31 AM
my favorite olive green linen pants (my mainstay work pants) got a small rip right on the front of the thigh.  i know there are those iron on patches for the inside-do they show much?  is there a better way?  
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / how to "seal" edges of carpet remnants? on: May 03, 2004 08:27:26 AM
my living room desperately needs a rug, but we can't spend the $ on one right now.  i found a bunch of carpet remnants at the thrift store, and i'm looking for ideas to bind off the edges cheaply and easily.  
any suggestions?
14  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / herbal remedies for gums/teeth? on: April 28, 2004 06:35:46 AM
i have major dentalphobia.  i'm also too broke to afford to go for check-ups/gum torture as often as i should.  so, i'm looking to brew up some mouthwash-type-thing that resembles those really pricey herbal preparations i spring for occasionally.  specifically the ones that are good for gingivitus.
i'm off to google, but has anyone here ever made something like this?
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / GIGANTIC flowers from recycled electrical parts on: April 04, 2004 10:23:33 AM
i made these for the grand openning of a friend's coffee bar...

the stems are pvc pipe, so they really sway in the breeze when "planted" outside.

ingredients: electrical tape, pvc pipe, wire, tulle netting, a nerf ball, staples.

i'd be happy to post directions if anyone's interested Smiley
16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / google's new image search-ooooohhh! on: April 02, 2004 10:36:56 AM
i just tried this and it's a great way to search for downloadable images.  much better than a "free ____clipart" hunt!
17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / collage, book, jewelry, ephemera, etc. HERE on: March 23, 2004 11:48:08 AM

18  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / tips on posting on: March 22, 2004 08:14:19 AM
eh, i feel a bit silly starting a new thread for this, but maybe others will post related q & a's here, too.  
i'd really like to know how to create a hyperlink that simply says "here" or "like this" rather than the whole string of html jabber.
19  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / fused glass creatures on: March 15, 2004 06:08:32 AM
these are some of the things i've made and kept over the last several years.  they're basically pieces of cut glass layered together and fused in a glass kiln at 1500 degrees.
rainbowtrout (12")

indiabird (14" long)

and the tail, close-up:

gardenfish (10 ")

butterfly (6" high)

and this one is made with a mold- i pressed this found metal elephant into clay halfway, fired the mold, then filled it with glass pieces. it's less than 3", trunk-to-tail.

these can easily be made in a pottery kiln as well.  and after seeing everyones' shrink plastic art, i'm wondering if something similar can be done with that, in an oven?  if i didn't already have 86 projects going, i might try it myself.
20  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / handmade book medley on: March 14, 2004 07:06:20 AM
here are some little books i've been working on (that's a quarter up front):

they're made with a variety of techniques:sewn binding, padding cement, japanese accordian, etc.
here's a larger one (about 4"x6"):

and a blurry closeup of the image under a large glass marble (it's michaelangelo's hand of god touching man):

and one more:

and a closeup of the doodads (shisha mirrors and glass marbles)
