hahaa... yeah i really wanna do a mr. rosso one still. that one photo you pointed out was the only one we were able to find online and we fiddled with it in photoshop but weren't able to get really good shadows. maybe i will have to try it again though! it could possibly be the best thing ever. haha.

thanks for all of the nice comments :]
13  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / napoleon dynamite jack-o-lantern! on: October 13, 2004 12:31:47 PM
my boyfriend and i were really wanting to carve a pumpkin on monday... the original plan was to do one of guidance counselor jeff rosso from freaks and geeks (if any you are familiar with that show - we are both in awe of the greatness that is jeff rosso) anyway... we weren't able to find a suitable photo of him to make a stencil out of- but then i saw someone who had done some napoleon dynamite wall art on the stenciling board (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=139.0)... so we settled on that for our subject!! which i have to say, isn't bad at all for "settling". i really want to make my own stencil of another subject and do another one of these again... it was a lot of fun!!! i do have to say i am very happy with how it came out- napoleon looks truly amazing when the tea lights are lit inside of our pumpkin... though we did run across a little trouble when it came to his glasses (as you can see... he isn't shown having any on! bah!) next time.... !!!

i also think her prices are completely reasonable - we tend have a very distorted view of what "fair" prices for goods are because so many of the things we buy are 1) made from CHEAP materials 2) made by underpaid workers in shabby working conditions and 3) are mass produced on such a scale that buying the mass quantities of materials (buying more means getting a cheaper price) to produce the goods and investing in the greatest technology available (for faster production) isn't an outlandish investment by the company that is manufacturing the good. hahaa. i hope that makes sense. all i know is i <3 diy!

plus, to me something just has more meaning when it is made by hand... it is special and sweet to think of all the effort that goes into making diy goods. i like being apart of that... even if it does mean paying a little more! :]

15  UNITED STATES / Georgia / Re: best flea markets on: September 25, 2004 07:03:55 AM
i'm in athens and we have a fleamarket here called the j&j and it's awesome! though, like most flea markets you need to come EARLY for the good stuff.... athens has at least 5 vintage clothing stores downtown that i can think of and with those shop owners and all of the college students things go fast.... but i definitely think it would be worth the trip out here.

J & J Flea Market is open Saturdays and Sundays year-round.
With 1250 vendor spaces, both indoor and outdoor, visitors will find collectibles, antiques, crafts and more.

16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / the vintage pattern lending library! on: September 24, 2004 09:07:17 PM

i posted this in clothing: discuss future projects a couple of days ago, but i thought it would be appreciated here just as much, so here it is again! <3


hey everyone... i just wanted to post a link to the vintage pattern lending library for anyone who hasn't heard of/seen it before. basically, what it is is a vast collection of something like 3,000 vintage sewing/needlework patterns from the 1900's to 1950's... some of my favorite things are the hats and flapper dresses! anyway, the cool thing about it is that after buying a year membership ($20 is the cheapest) you can check out most patterns for $5 like you would a book at the library! there are also some patterns for sale... but i haven't looked into that out much. if you sew a lot and have a hard time finding fun exciting patterns at the usual sources (joann's, hancocks, blah blah) you should check it out!


some examples of what they have:

hehee.. thanks for the reassurance boo. much appreciated!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / nooooooooooooo!!!! on: September 24, 2004 03:27:36 PM
aaaahhhh! i have never heard of this "curse" before and i knitted my boyfriend a scarf just this past week and gave it to him yesterday!! talk about bad timing in reading this thread... hehha. anyway, he loved the scarf and it perfectly matched one of his jackets that he really likes... but uuuhhh this freaks me out! we have been together for almost 5 months.. not too long, but i have to say... i have been in a few serious relationships and this is the best one yet! so maybe i shouldn't be so worried afterall.. it's just superstition!

hahhaa. yeeeesssss... rats rule! they are just like little miniature dogs! (sorta) i used to have a pair of mice and they had 10 babies. yeah. maybe getting a male and a female wasn't a good idea after all...
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / purl! on: September 24, 2004 09:36:03 AM
hi there! i just wanted to respond with a website and a couple of ideas...


purl has an awesome selection of high quality yarns available online... whats cool about their site is that you can search by brand, fiber, or gauge. they have all of the typical animal fibers, but they also have yarns made from polyester & nylon, silk, linen, and bamboo. i'm assuming the nylon/poly blends are somewhat similar to acrylic... but i bet the ones on the site are much nicer than what you would get at your typical craft store. and the silk, of course, would be an idea only if you weren't concerned about the silk worms. (i do know some vegans who won't eat honey, etc etc). a lot of it is quite expensive, but even if you don't end up buying from them it is fun to look and drool! and maybe this will give you a couple of ideas for other options you have.

i knit with wool mainly, but i am vegeterian so i can see where you are coming from. i don't believe that using animal fibers is cruel, but i also understand that being vegeterian or vegan is a personal choice that is no one's business but your own... so you should do what you personally feel comfortable with. i know i hate it when people are critical about my eating habits and the fact that i won't buy anything made of suede/leather/etc... but i know that i am happy with my lifestyle and would have it no other way. so yeah! three cheers to you for doing what you believe is right!
