Great Job! What a perfect way to also save 2 great items from being tossed so fast. To see the potential and make it work.
Love this. I had bought a vintage sofa I love and the frame cracked from being to dry here in Texas. My friends all told me to
toss it out. It's perfect, the fabric is like new. Toss it??? So I found a furniture repair man and he is fixing the frame for $75.
Wish I had your husbands talent or a guy like him but $75 is still much cheaper that any new sofa and I get to keep the awesome
lime green 1960's look with clean boxy lines.
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Darth Vader Princess! on: November 11, 2010 04:00:08 PM
I saw this costume and FREAKED! So absolutely cute! So just the other day I was at Target and back on their clearance rack was a Adult Darth Vader costume left over from Halloween with the electronic light up mask for $2!! YEA! So when I was at the check out this lady saw it in my cart and was like, nice costume and I said; it's for me! I'm going to do the Darth Vader Princess next year! She was like OMG I saw that on craftsters! How awesome! LOL! Now I just need to cut it up, girly it up! So excited and LOVE yours! Thanks for the inspiration.

love love love this! I do this type of thing all the time. My Chef at work said to always make sure to cut and place some clear parchment or wax paper under
any foods that might be touching the plate itself. The lacquer particles in the paint can be poisons to your health. She said even for store bought decorative plates you should do the
same because many are made and painted in china and they do not have the same health standards as in the US and could contain lead. Plus you can still see the pretty plate and makes
it look clean and fancy!

Great Work! If tragedy ever struck you could find a replacement on Etsy. They always have them! I have a smaller one I need to sell. I love the patten but only have one and no space. So it needs a happy home.

THESE ROCK! THE BEST! I need to make some for my baby girl nieces. Their parents are sorta vanilla in style but the girls are more cooky and creative like me and their other auntie on their mothers side who is also a artist. I know they would want to wear these everywhere! Love them!

Leeeeeee OVE this. OK so I have not read every post but if you are considering a marketing this or a patent. Then take all your photos, print out your post here, any sketches, written ideas make sure you have dates on them and seal them into a FedEx envelope. Then FedEx them to yourself with signed signature. when you get the envelope back home in the mail from FedEx DO NOT open it. This is your temporary patent. If you ever needed you can take it before the judge and he would open it with the FedEx Dates (keep confirmation receipt of sale as well. Tape to front of package.) With all your ideas documented very well inside to prove you were the first. Then yo can post patent pending all rights and copy infringement reserved. best to check with a legal pro on the correct lingo. Then work on marketing your idea and patenting your dresses and tops. THESE WOULD SELL! They are so cute!
Best of luck~Wonderful job!

PS I graduated from Ringling Collage of Art and Design in Sarasota Florida and this is the method the told us to use for our ideas.

TERRIFIC! You could also use felt and glue magnets to the back. If you have the Cricut you could cut all the felt shapes out in your different sizes and even buy the flat magnet in the sheets with the adhesive on the back and cut them on the Cricut as well. You might be able to find sheet metal to use at home Depot or even ask on Craigslist for a scrap piece. It could be even more fun to try a piece of metal that is cut into a shape or bent wavy. Awesome! thanks for posting!
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Make ur own BUTTER on: September 07, 2010 03:40:31 PM
Keep a look out at your thrift shops for the Tupperware or Rubbermaid butter dishes. They seal tight. You can freeze in them and they are dishwasher safe. You can also use the Tupperware square one for cream cheese. I just picked up a extra one this weekend for a Quarter in the kitchen tool bin at my local thrift shop here in Lewisville Texas CCA. Love that place. When your butter is still soft place in a mold or plastic zip bag and freeze. Then pop out and place on your sealable butter dish! If you don't care to much about how pretty the shape looks you can just form it by hand and place in the dish and freeze or chill.

Also cute for a party use your silicone ice cube mold. (they often have them at the Dollar Tree) fill with butter and chill. Then when you have a special dinner pop one on a butter plate for each guest. You can also display them under a glass cloche, glass butter  bell or butter dish. Fancy shmacy especially with your gourmet flavored butters for breakfast or dinner! this look cute for rehearsal dinners and such.
