21  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Craft The Vote! / Ideas for Getting People to Vote on: March 02, 2004 06:32:11 AM
utne magazine has some suggestions...

free beer/espresso/sweets at the polls

discounts with an "i voted" sticker at cafes/bakeries/etc. on election day

fines for non-voters (works in australia-95% vote!!)

tax break for voters

free lottery tickets to a national lottery

make election day on a weekend

while most of these would be tough to make happen, we all know some shopowners to suggest discounts to, and anyone involved in their community could set in motion a plan to offer baked goods, etc. at the polls.  or marble magnets

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / looking for paper crane instructions on: February 06, 2004 06:39:39 AM
i know someone out there has some paper crane instructions that make sense.  it seems that everything i've found, googled or otherwise, is either in japlish or is missing a crucial step or two...
would someone be willing to scan or point me toward some good instructions?
thanks!  i'd appreciate it Kiss

25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / anyone made a paper lantern? on: January 30, 2004 12:10:54 PM
i posted this somewhere, but can't remember where Huh ahhh, sleep deprivation...

so, i'd love to hear how to go about making the spirally wire frame and affixing paper to it-whenever i try to picture doing it, i see myself glued to a big wiry, papery, crumpled mess...
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / tried glass bottle cutters, anyone? on: January 30, 2004 10:32:53 AM
hey y'all, just wondering if anyone's got experience using the bottle cutters i've seen at michael's-i thought it'd be fun to recycle my wine bottles by turning them into glasses and etching them for gifts...
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / more stylin' votives on: January 30, 2004 10:17:34 AM

modge podged the paper, superglued the marbles, and duco cemented the beaded ribbon.  so easy and sparkly Smiley
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / desperately seeking...embroidery mirrors? on: January 28, 2004 06:15:15 PM
anyone know where to buy those itty-bitty round mirrors most often seen on hindu wares (usually elaborately embroidered garments)?
i have about 8 million ideas for their use.
29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / valentine votives on: January 27, 2004 06:21:00 AM
just whipped up a bunch of these.
i printed words and hearts onto vellum, then
rubber cemented marbles to them, then superglued them to the glass.
i want to pour some yummy scented wax in there...i've got a post floating around here somewhere about whether that would shatter them...
anyway, very simple, here they be:


30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / new flare for old pants on: January 18, 2004 07:05:22 AM
i'm a tall gal, so thrifting for pants that fit is often challenging.  to avoid the flood look, i jazzed up some pants that didn't quite fit lengthwise.

i handsewed a strip of a tapestry skirt onto these yoga pants:

and i made these khakis into capris with some trim from another skirt, which is now just a shorter skirt.

obviously i don't iron Tongue  the steamy nc summers usually do that for me!
