1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: marble magnets as favors... packaging ideas? on: November 16, 2004 08:26:35 AM
You could do something with a piece of metal. I don't know how this would work out, but if you can get one of those can openers that cuts the lid off without sharp edges you could paint them with a glossy spray paint and stick the magnets on.

I use jar lids that I spray paint and then put them in a cellophane bag and make a "topper" from cardstock

there's a very cute one online at www.crackersandhoney.com (it's SUPER adorable.) i don't think the shipping is too much.

That's the one I have and I get people coming over to my booth because their friend said they should check out my apron!

nice! how did you do the dowels so that you could add new or subtract empty spools?

I screwed hooks the wood blocks on each end so the dowel sits on the hooks. 

I'm a fan of tension rods, too, and that's a great idea!  I used one for the curtains I made for a shelving unit so I didn't have to look at my stuff all the time.  I'm a big fan of hiding stuff!   

Post your dresser when you repurpose it!  I love to see painted cabinets and dressers!

You are welcome! Smiley

I'm going add this to above it for more storage solutions and storing project sheets and ideas!

The wood is the same base color and the coffee cans match one of the drawers.  It's just a mater of screwing the cans to the wood and then I used eye hooks to hang it on nails in the wall, which are in the studs, of course!

Thanks for the feedback!

where did u ever find magnetic paint???  i have looked everywhere and can't find it  Huh

I frequent two Michaels locations and one had and the other didn't - go figure.  I used 40% off coupon since it's about $12.

In the spring, I picked up this dresser for 5 bucks and it painted red, green and blue and had stickers on it from the little boy who had it.

I sanded, primed and painted it.  
Three of the drawers got a design to add some color and the other 2 drawers I used 2 coats of magnetic paint to create those boxes -- it says you can paint over it but I found that because I was using light green over gray I'd need 2 or more coats and then it would no longer be magnetic.
I added dowels to neatly store my ribbon spools.
Inside the dtawers store my various supplies and I hope to keep the top un-cluttered to work on quick projects!

8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: shipping ...ups vs fedex vs priority mail on: August 09, 2004 06:16:43 PM
I prefer USPS Priority Mail via the click and ship web site. at home, I can weigh the packages, fill out the customer mailing info and email addy and buy postage online.  Then customer gets an email for delivery confirmation when the package is scanned/sent. 

I haven't tried it, but you can now schedule free pick-up of you package. or if your packages have the postage paid for you can normally skip waiting in line and go to the desk to drop it off.  I loudly but politely say, this package has postage may I drop it here? so that the less experienced postal visitors don't get huffy that I'm not waiting my turn Wink

I grew up and still live in the 'burbs of Cincinnati and I know it's not for everyone. 
*I like that affordable at least compared to a city like Chicago.
*We have access to some bigger city attractions but it also has a smaller downhome feel, at least, in my area 
*I love the city and church festivals held throughout the year
*I'm within 5 hours driving time to a variety of cities

*I'd not fond of the sales tax being 7% in Ohio, but eh my sister lives in Indianapolis so I like to shop over there with their 4% sales tax
*you probably have to work a little harder to find the artsy areas though there are options for opera and plays
*the bus is the only public transit and most people who live in the 'burbs have cars
*our 'burbs could have been better designed with more sidewalks and mixed use zoning (commercial and residential) to promote more walking and biking

Aha! I may have found an even better location than the one previously under discussion! I've fired off an email to them and will keep you all informed. It's a giant, cool indie art gallery in a loft-style building on the west side of Cleveland.

Very cool.  keep us updated with anything you need help with!
