1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: 3/16/06 - Interesting Book Signing / Craftster Get-Together Locations? on: March 17, 2006 01:49:06 PM
San Diego, San Diego, San Diego

There's a bar in my neighborhood called the Whistle Stop that does a Stitch and Bitch.  There is also a coffee shop there called Rebecca's.  I know the owners of a wine bar called Wine Steals that would also be interesting, they have a back room for private events.  I'm sure I could find more places, let me know if san diego is going to be on your list and I will look into venues.

(oh, and congrats on the book!)

I received my package from Porfiry last week.  It is truly amazing and as soon as I can get my boyfriend to find the camera, I will post pictures

What a shame!  Your Amelie is so beautiful, too bad it doesn't fit!  But I am absolutely certain there is a young girl somewhere who would love it!  Even as a child I loved darker and more subdued colors than the typical bright children's wear.  I think you should find a shop near you to take in on consignment, or put it on ETSY or something

Okay, so I took a crafting hiatus and I completely forgot that I posted this.    I have used them as fish tank decorations and i have an idea that i am going to make for someone for a swap and then I will post pictures of it.   Sorry I forgot!  I had no idea so many of you were concerned about my dildos!

I am in San Diego, California, USA

My wishes:

1.  A vegan starter kit.  I've been a vegetarian for 15 years and though I've tried many times to become vegan, it is now inevitable due to medical necessity.  Recipes, anecdotes, favorite vegan (non-perishable obviously) items that I should know about, a used book you want to pass along, a collage of reasons I should be vegan etc, lists of things that seem vegan that aren't.  Whatever helped you, that you think will help me.   THANK YOU PORFIRY!!!

2.  A bag and/or needle roll for my growing knitting collection

3.  Surprise me!

I am 29, I do yoga, am trying to be healthier and am trying to train for my first sprint triathlon.  I believe in recycling, burning man, and reusing and redoing things to breathe new life.  I love music, Jeff Buckley, Nina Simone, Hooverphonic, Groove Armada, Tosca, Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, the list goes on and on (though a theme seems to be that I love the music created by children of 60's folk stars)  I have three turtles that I rescued, otherwise I have mixed feelings about the morality of having pets.  I am a writer, and I am *hopefully* about to transfer to a University to finish my English degree.  I swing toward the radical left in politics and I have hope for a better future.  I am learning to knit.  I'd like to learn bead work.  I love to read, Tom Robbins, Milan Kundera, David Sedaris are all favorites (but that list is long too, I really try not to read anything that has ever been featured on Oprah).

I heard from Ningy that she got my package.  Hopefully she will post pictures since I forgot to take some before wrapping it all up!

That journal is FANTASTIC! 

I have so many papers, I really should make one.  How do you get the binding to look so professional?

And the beads!  Wow! 

I want to thank Jaami for the mixed CD's she sent.  I've listened to part of one of them and so far I love them!  Thank you!  (I didn't post pics since we all know what CD's look like!)

Now I'm just on pins and needles waiting for Zenochka to get my craft and see if she likes it.

I sent yesterday.  I think it will take a while to get to Singapore.  I know I must have gone way overboard because the box weighed almost 3 pounds!  I really need to learn restraint with these swaps!  The shipping ends up being more than the items are worth. 

Is there some secret for shipping cheaply to other countries?  Other than sending it by boat?  Plus, when I filled out the customs form I of course had to put that it was filled with chocolate.  I am worried that some customs agent is going to flag it and eat all the goodies!

I'm all ready to send to Ningy today.  But I forgot to take a picture of the the box before I wrapped it for shipping Sad   I decided not to unwrap the box again, so I just took a picture of the wrapped box ready for shipping.   

I can't wait for my chocolate treats!  It was so hard to just buy chocolate for Ningy and not any for me!

Wow, everyone has such great stuff.  I'm sending tomorrow. 

So, I have a bizarre accident to share with everyone, something that did not happen while crafting, but has definitely slowed my progress.

On Monday night I was slicing a baguette (bread) and the bread slipped and the edge of it, the hard crust part, got shoved under my thumbnail, and separated the skin from my thumbnail!   I had no idea how much I used my thumb, and how much pressure I put on my thumb on a regular basis. 

It's finally started to get better but I've had to limit my crafting to about 15 minutes at a time or it starts to bleed again (anyone want a bloody craft?) and modify my yoga practice... all for a stupid baguette.  I guess I learned the hard way that carbs really are bad for you!
