1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: The Big Lebowski Swap Gallery on: September 15, 2006 07:00:43 PM
Ok swapees... heres the first post with pics!!!

So I recieved my package from Knitty Mcknitknit... and inside were several BEAUTIFULLY wrapped items in super cute tissue paper and on the outside of each package was a movie quote linked to the item inside... i wanted to take pics of them wrapped.. but instead i just kept the wrappers and tried to put the quotes in the pics next to the items!!!

The first item i opened was....

Bunny's scrunchie!!! HAHAHAHAAA... im totally wearing this to class on monday by the way... so awesome!!!


The burger TOTALLY blew me away!!! Talk about details!!! (and plus it made me really hungry hehe). SO CUTE!!! I am totally using this as a pin cushion!!!! and the bag... super creative!!!! I LOVE IN N OUT burgers!!!!

While I LOVE everything you made, this is by FAR my favorite!!! (because i am obsessed with maude!!!) I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
And inside the box to my surprise...

it says: "the word itself makes some men uncomfortable. vagina." HAHA!!!!

Did i mention that after i first saw the movie I became obsessed with white russians? So awesome- and the bookmark is even laminated!!! I need a bookmark too!!! THANKS!!!!

The beanie... you are amazing... i wish i knew how to knit like that!!! This also made me laugh... haha. So creative... I want to go bowling now and wear it. Do you think Jesus will be jealous? THANK YOU!!!! I am loving it!

Here is the card! I had to take a picture of it too!!!

You are so talented! You put so much time and effort into this swap, thank you so much!!!! Again... everything is so amazing!!! I can't wait until you see yours!!!

Sorry about the long post!!!

hairspray works good to get ink out.  As for paint... what type of paint is it? They have special paint removers "kiss off" at art craft supply stores. Try brush cleaner... but make sure to water it down so it doesn't bleach your carpet.

Also, don't scrub. I know it sounds stupid (because i still scrub... im inpatient!)  But it only spreads the stain. Blot the stain.  It takes longer, but this way it won't spread or go deeper into the carpet, or ruin the carpet. Also, try a rug shampoo. 

I am the biggest klutz there is.  I have spilled everything and anything on carpeting.... lipstick, paint, rubber cement, charcoal dust, pastels, gesso, glue, plaster.... you name it, i've done it!

RED PAINT is probably going to be REALLY hard to get out because red dye is really hard to get out!!! (Sorry to say this!!!!). Also, be careful, some carpet cleaners tend to leave spots....

if you do a search on google for carpet stains... there are some more options... but whatever you do, test it first.... good luck!!!

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Glass Head on: August 25, 2006 08:31:52 PM
Yeah apparently the merchandisers at pier 1 decided to get rid of the human glass heads and replaced them with buddah glass heads....

I bought one for my brother and made a lamp out of it. Somewhere else on craftster made a lamp out of one too... i think they made a hanging lamp? but anyways... I made a base out of a square peice of mdf, drilled a hole through it to hold the lamp kit, and placed some "feet" on the base, and then I just sat the head over the top, It ended up pretty cool.
