1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / crafts in need of home after redecoration on: June 03, 2010 12:06:13 PM
My room is 11.5x9.5 and the twin bed, bookshelf, and dresser take up a surprising amount of space in my room. Crafts have taken over my room and I really need to redecorate. I've convinced my parents to let me redecorate (they were surprisingly accepting of the steampunk idea) but now I need to find a way to store all my craftyness before I actually start painting. I don't want it to take over again and ruin the look but my only storage options are the closet and I'm already putting shelves in there and I'm not sure everything will fit. anyone have ideas to help me store my crafts without losing the look to my room.
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Quick fix meals on: May 15, 2010 05:31:46 PM
my house is meat central and most nights are 'fend for yourself' nights does anyone know of some quick fix foods that can be made with out much prep. time. travel friendly foods are also needed as I'm going to be on the road a lot soon and there are really only fast food places for quick stops.
Thanks   Grin
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Moving up in the world on: November 24, 2009 10:48:58 AM
I've finally decided to move on from play-dough(I love the stuff)
to actual clay. Poly clay.
However to ease the mind of my parents I need to know a few
things about baking.
Is there a special pan it has to be baked on?
Will it stick, if so, what can I do to prevent it?
What's the ideal baking temperature, does it vary by the size of the project?
Will I have to clean the oven after baking, any toxic fumes to worry about?
And the biggest question:
Will it explode?
Apparently my baking skills are lacking despite the fact that I've never
had complaints. (though I suppose food is very different)

Anything important I missed?

Any sites to recommend for a complete beginner?

Thanks in advance.

Oh. wow. I think my brain just broke.
But thank you!
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Vitamin water bottles caps and all on: November 18, 2009 01:56:28 PM
they seem a bit too lumpy to make beads but I have a
few and more are probably going to come. For now they're
just collecting dust on my desk and causing trouble.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Stalked by crafts on: September 21, 2009 12:35:17 PM
I wanted to keep my dorm clean so I decided to not bring any
thread, fabric, or my machine  Cry  since I'd be to lazy to vacuum. But somehow
there was lingering thread  on my clothes or blanket that survived the wash machine
 and are now all over my floor.
The sight has me feeling the crafty withdrawl.
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / My sewing machine is *insert colorful explicitives* on: June 05, 2009 11:07:56 PM
She has recently been oiled, cleaned, and needle changed due to the fact that the
tension nob fell off (It took doing all of that, an awesome unofficial mechanic, an ancient sewing guru, and myself just to figure out it was loose in the first place  Tongue). So all of that was fixed and she worked for a while but now ( a poppet head and three limbs later) no matter how I adjust the tension it's either extremely loose or it gets all knotty but only sometimes and no one knows why.
I think she was cursed by some vengeful hippie spirit since mum bought it around that time in a yard sale and my sewing guru never has problems with it but I figured I'd ask the wonderful people here first. A rather long explanation just to ask about sometimes wonky tension but I'm feeling a bit ticked.

THANK YOU so much I'm hoping I just have to re-thread it. If not Pink Floyd here I come.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / To serge or not to serge? on: May 27, 2009 11:08:18 AM
That's really not the question since I couldn't even
afford a serger on ebay at the moment. The question
is; is serging really that important? No one I know has ever
done it( I never have either) but you see it everywhere on
anything store bought. Is there any alternative if it is
important? I figure it best to ask now before I start to
heavily alter anything.
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / what to do with legs? on: May 15, 2009 03:48:07 PM
I'm about to destroy(mother's word for it) a pair of capri's for a skirt.
I hate wasting material of any sort but my mind is drawing a blank at what to
do with the leftovers. Roughly a foot and a half of denim for each leg.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Three year fear on: December 05, 2008 08:22:09 PM
I've been knitting for about five years, and for three of them
I've been wanting to knit a sweater out of his really awesome
yarn I found. Unfortunately I keep hearing all of these horror
stories of how others knitting has stretched to ridiculous
proportions. Any advice on keeping things from stretching
