I had been thinking about getting a new rug, and the cool thing about interfaceflor is that they send free samples, and I ended up with a whole bunch of small little carpet samples that I can do something crafty with even if you don't use them for a rug.

I suggest looking at the new edition of ready made mag, as it has an article on how to make soap molds.

My new copy of ready made mag has an idea for light bulbs: salt and pepper shakers.  

things you need:  2 light bulbs; 12 3/8" hex nuts; 1/2 cup wax; 2 soda bottle caps; gloves; goggles; hacksaw; double boiler or something to melt wax; drill and 5/64" drill bit.


It says the following:  (1) wearing gloves and goggles, take a hacksaw to cut through the metal base of the bulb about 1/4" from the glass-metal contact point; but do not cut through the inner core holding the filament; cut all the way around the bulb; (2) remove and discard the inner core and gently rinse out the bulbs; (3) place 6 hex nuts in the base to weigh down the bulbs -- distribute evenly to make sure each bulb stands upright; (4) melt wax in a double boiler and pour about a 1/4 cup into each bulb so that the nuts are evenly covered; (5) keep bulbs upright and let wax cool; (6) add salt to one bulb and pepper to another bulb; (7) drill holes through soda bottle caps and screw the cap onto each bulb

where is the michael's??  I only know of the target on route 1 in alexandria down by that big movie theater.  

I have searched around for interesting classes, etc.. There are art classes at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town, and some other arty classes offered by the Smithstonian's campus on the mall.... They offer a beading class.  Other beading things sold at Beadazzled in Dupont circle.  I also like the big art stor on M street in Georgetown. I bouthg some wood frames there to paint.  I also like the hardware store on 14th & P (Logan Hardware).  I live near dupont and dont have a car, so I try to go places to which I can either walk or metro.  The Container store in Arlington near Clarendon has some things I think could be used to make cool stuff with as well.

I wanted to thank you all for the suggestions about blik.  I just purchased 3 sets of the blik circles, although it looked kind of easy to make.  I was in Lowe's this weekend and saw a lot of vinyl squares in different colors that could probably be cut to make shapes to stick on the wall.  I was also thinking that some place there must be sold some cooler looking sheets of plastic or whatever that can be stuck on the wall.  However, they may not be as easy to remove as the blik stickers, so I was thinking about attaching them to posterboard or another type of medium that can be hung on the wall and easier to remove later if necessary.

I was looking over the instructions in the Ready made mag.  I live in a super small place and have no room for another table, so I am thinking of modifying the instructions and making a light for the wall.  Another thing I was thinking about was getting some plastic or some other kind of colored transparent sheets and sticking them on top or having a compartment on the top where I can stick the colored sheets -- that way the light can shine through and I can change the light with my moods - red, blue, etc....

Does anyone have a good idea for using used and burned-out light bulbs?
