23  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: revamped cafe table and chairs with mosaic marbling....almost done! NEW PICS on: June 20, 2005 04:43:39 PM
Okay guys, so I ended up grouting in the marbles and this is what it looks like now without the resin poured on top.

I'm loving this thread and how the table is looking!  I have been wanting to do something similar with a smaller circular table and clear marble pictures.  I was thinking of gettting a glass circle cut for the top but now I'm wondering about resin..... my table would be used indoors only so weather is not an issue.  I think grout would obscure my images too much.  Anyway, awesome job and I look forward to the finished pics.

24  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: wart treatment? on: May 20, 2005 03:47:37 AM
Yeah, Duct tape would work.  My podiatrist recommended this method when I was pregnant and unable to use regular treatment. You paint the wart(s) with Iodine, then cover with tape - the kind athletes use, brand name here was 'Sleek"  Just leave it on and keep changing the tape and use the iodine everyd day until the wart goes.  The surrounding skin gets a bit yucky but it really works.  The tape excludes the air or something and the wart dies off.  Mine have never come back.
25  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Re: Cowboy boots and overpriced thrift... on: May 05, 2005 04:28:15 AM
I've never noticed any cowboy boots in Chch but I'll keep an eye out now for you  Grin
I have also noticed the huge variability in pricing and I'm sure rent must play a part in this.  I do not mind paying more for an item but it would have to be a good label and in excellent condition e.g. $6 for a shirt I know cost well over $100 new is fine by me.  I mostly buy kids clothing, there are still some great bargains there but you have to be careful.  I donated some kids clothes to the one in Fendalton and noticed they had priced one childs sundress badly stained with facepaint at $4,  I paid $2 brand new at the Warehouse for it!  Crazy.
I get the best bargains at garage sales and out at the Riccarton market.

Question, though...does anyone know if those lollipop sticks can go in the oven? I'm guessing they'll either catch fire or just turn brown... Not sure how else to get cookies on sticks....Any ideas?Huh? Huh

These are really easy to make and no, the sticks do not burn at all. Just use your favourite cookie recipe and carefully slide the sticks in horizontally to the cut out shape before you bake.  It is easier than you might think and they are very firm on the stick so will look awesome in your cool bumble bee pot!

I made star shaped cookie 'wands' for my daughters recent birthday and they were a huge hit with all the girls.  Yesterday I made some teddy shapes on sticks to take to my nephews christening party.  I dipped those ones in melted chocolate and then decorated to look like teddy bears

I used plain flat wooden lolly sticks.  I do have some pretty coloured ones but decided not to use them - was not sure if they were OK for food use or if they were craft-only kind of sticks.  Would not want to poison anyone with icky dyes!

I saw some sari-ish fabric in Spotlight the other day.  There was a bit in the remnant bin Smiley There was gold woven in sari style along one side on a bronzy toned fabric.  Might be worth a look (or a phone call) to see if they have what you are after.
