1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Backlog of Hoopla art! Felt, Buttons, Beads, Zentangles and more (pic heavy!!) on: July 01, 2012 04:32:09 PM
I love these hoops!  I keep a few of them on my cube walls so much better than staring at bland beige walls.  I'm drooling over the nautilus hoop.  What kind of stitch is that on the "Bitch" hoop?
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / HELP! Need ideas for iPhone 4 case on: June 25, 2010 02:58:18 PM

hi amazing craftsters,

i need an idea for a iphone 4 case. if you haven't heard by now some folks are having issues with reception on the new phones.  don't get me wrong this baby is beautiful!  looks like the display was kissed by angels. 

Apple has a resolution for this issue....which is "buy a case".  Being as crafty as i am, would rather just make something.  But, i'm stumped. these are some of the stips that are coming with this project.

1) no adhesives...  i saw a cheap way of fixing the issue by using a piece of tape on the area where the antennas meet. but, really... do i want to stick a piece of scotch tape on my new $200.00 phone?

2) the case needs to be fitted. either around the edges of the phone or both along the edges and the back of the phone.

any ideas would be welcomed.  and i appreciated it much.

thanks folks.

woooHoo! First time poster and long time craft creeper.  So, I was greatly inspired by your coasters that I had to try them out for my self.  I got the same glaze you did and also went down the paint section and picked up a few of their clear quart sized mixing cups.  I know I should have reused something but, I did make  a gallant effort in looking at home. Also, they were pretty cheap at .78  cents!

 A couple of things we ( the fiance wanted to get in on the action, too! ) noticed.  The side that faces the cup came out frosty.  The top part that was getting "air" was completely clear. Good to know if you are putting something in it that has a right side up. Getting them out of the cups took a bit of effort.  I have found that if you put your hand inside the cup and push the sides of the cup away from the coaster you'll start hearing it "snap" off of the cup leaving air bubbles all the way around.  Then you can just give it a whack and it will pop right off!  Another thing we noticed about using the mixing cups is that it made a perfect indention for your cup to sit in!  It also looks like we will be able to re use them for the next go around.  Well worth the .78 cents.

I'll try to post up some pics later!

Thanks for the brilliant idea and I hope some of these tips help.  Smiley
