I'm in love with the second one too - did you use a pattern?

Sleeves like that drive me nuts to wear, but they look really good on you!  The sweater is great, I love the contrast between the yellow and the gray.

Creepy and gorgeous and stunning!!!!!!!!!!

This is a brilliant idea!  I love wearing low-rise jeans (more flattering on my hips and tush) but I'm always so paranoid about bending over or even sitting down in them sometimes, particularly as so many cute tees these days seem designed for unimpeded navel-gazing...  *sigh*  Anyway, this is the perfect idea to fix that problem and keep snuggly warm in cold weather, thank you so much!!!

Amazing job - I would never have seen the coolness lurking within a boxy old coat like that!  I totally understand on the lacking most of the crafting essentials, too - it can be limiting.  Sad  The bottom edges do look pretty unfinished, though - are they fraying badly?  If you're a semi-speedy hand-sewer, some light blue edge binding tape (to match the ties on the front, that great bow on the back and the awesome pocket hanky) might work to both finish the bottom edge there and really tie the whole look together...  Just a suggestion, as I think it looks great without.  Wink

You and your date are too dang cute for words!!!  Freaking adorable Cheesy  I love the blend of colors in your dress, and the details of the decoration are awesome.  Hehe, if someone had worn a dress like this to my prom (many many moons ago) I would've been so jealous!  Oh, and the headpiece and your makeup look so great with the dress, too. 
7  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Robot etched glasses on: October 01, 2008 08:30:31 AM
Just to mention another method that I've found works well  -  nailpolish!  Really, and it gets rid of those old 'what-was-I-thinking' colors, too.  The nailpolish brush works perfectly for making nice thin lines, so I often use this method to freehand hearts, handwriting, etc.  I've found that etching so that the letters are the negative space rather than the etched part is the easiest to read, also.  Cleanup is easy too - after scraping off the ArmorEtch and washing the glass, I dip a cotton ball in nail polish remover, swipe off my writing, and voila!
I don't have any pictures of the method though, since I always used as night-before-birthday crafting sprees to make presents, so they were pretty much dried off and immediately wrapped.  Sad  Give it a shot though!  Cheesy
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: MY DOG EATS YARN on: September 30, 2008 02:15:00 PM
Of my three cats, the oldest loved to sit on and try to eat patterns, the middle one would open locked doors to get to my yarn stash where she would 'nest' and sleep (so many knotted and destroyed yarn balls!), and the youngest?  A little terror, he taught himself to unthread my sewing machine, loved to knock any supplies I needed off the desk, and had to be in my lap 'helping' me constantly.  Unfortunately, they're all living with friends while I am living abroad, and I miss them terribly - I'd much rather have their form of help than have to craft unencumbered by them! 
9  U.K. AND IRELAND / IRELAND / Re: Anyone from ireland? on: September 30, 2008 01:54:26 PM
The freezer paper thing has been befuddling me also I haven't sen it anywhere but it must be around somewhere. Maybe Lidl or Aldi or the really big Tescos'.

It's just plastic-coated paper used to wrap food before it's frozen.  It comes on a roll just like aluminum foil.  The plastic coating is very thin but, when used for stenciling (the most common crafty use) the plastic keeps the ink from permeating the paper.  It's handy and disposable, so very popular!

And hi!  I'm another crafter here in Ireland, but I'm in Cork.  I've found very few craft-y places so far (Only lived here for 3 months, and I'm from Los Angeles, so it's a biiiig difference!) so I'll be keeping my eye on this thread. 

To give what little info I DO have about crafting in Cork: there's a store called Vibes 'n' Scribes: it's mostly used books and music, but their larger branch, on Leavitt's Quay (I think) has a craft section with some lovely yarn, craft books, beads, etc.  I didn't actually spend too much time there 'cause I was afraid of spending waaaay too much if I stayed to browse!  There's also a pocket-sized craft store in a little nook across the way from Tesco in City Centre, but it's quite small and seems more embroidery-focused, though I did buy a crochet hook there.  Nice ladies behind the counter though!

Happy crafting!
10  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Tea Jello! (a bad cook gets crazy in the kitchen) on: September 30, 2008 01:08:51 PM
awesome idea!!!

EDIT: what about pudding?!?!? like vanilla chai for vanilla pudding??

Never tried that personally, but I had to chime in: I used to be the queen of jello shots, and I eventually branched out into pudding shots as well - they're not diet AT ALL, but vanilla pudding made with Frangelico and chocolate pudding made with Baileys are both DELISH!!

That said, I bet chai would taste lovely mixed with peach Jello...
