1  EUROPE / FRANCE / Toulouse and Paris on: February 18, 2012 08:17:31 AM
I will be traveling to Paris and Toulouse in March.  I will be in Toulouse for a week.  I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for places to visit that sell crafts or unique handmade items.  Thanks so much.
2  UNITED STATES / Washington, D.C. / can someone teach me to crochet? on: February 16, 2007 08:15:48 PM
I would like to learn how to crochet.  I want to do this because I find Amigurumi to be so cute.  I'd like to eventually make some amigurimi items.

Anyway, if anyone has time to kind of teach me, I am willing to pay for lessons.  I live in DC, would need to be on the weekend  and near metro (no car).

3  UNITED STATES / Washington, D.C. / rock & shop at black cat? on: December 14, 2006 05:27:30 PM
anyone going?  anyone ever been?  is it worth getting my butt out there on a Sunday night?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / painting ugly particleboard furniture on: September 05, 2004 05:35:51 PM
Does anyone know how to paint particleboard furniture?  I have this ugly file cabinet made out of what I think is particleboard but paint does not stick to it.  Anyone know how to deal with this surface?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / krylon paint for plastic on: January 19, 2004 08:17:54 PM
I was in the hardware store today and saw this paint (in my store, called "krylon" ) that is spray paint that says it is especially made to be used to paint on plastic surfaces.  

Has anyone ever used this?  I thought it would be good for painting big plastic tubs, as well as some of my ugly fake wood furniture pieces that regular paint does not stick to, but I am wondering if it actually works.
6  UNITED STATES / Virginia / northern va (arlington/alexandria area) on: November 03, 2003 05:44:10 PM
Those of you in northern va might also want to check out the dc city guides as well, as I think I've mentioned some places in Nova in there.  There is a Michael's just kind of South of Old Town Alexandria -- if you stay on route 1 and go down a bit, towards/near the Huntington Metro.  There is also a Lowe's.

The other day I went to a Joann's fabric store near 7 corners.  There was a Michaels in the same strip mall area.  It was great!! I couldn't find what I wanted at Joann's and just left and walked a few doors over to Michael's.

I wish there were stores like this in DC, but there are not really, so I go down to Va.  
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / painting bathroom tile on: October 30, 2003 07:54:32 PM

Has anyone ever painted their bathroom tile?  I've heard that it is possible, and I really hate the look of my white tile that is impossible to keep looking clean.  

I heard that it's possible to actually paint right on the tile to make it another color, and I was thinking of doing that as well as re-grouting.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / pom poms/felting on: September 24, 2003 08:02:02 PM
 was reading on several sites about making things with hand-made pom poms. I had forgotten how to make them, but it is very simple:  just take some "c" shaped cardboard cutouts (2) of them, and holding the pieces together, wrap yarn aropund them several times, cut around the edges, tie yearm between the two "c" shaped cut outs and tie the yarn tightly and remove the cardboard for the pom poms.

The Martha Stewart website has some stuff about making various kids' things like lady bugs and snakes.  The new edition on "Home crafts" shows how to make a lamb-like rug with pom poms.  But if anyone has done anything else with them, I'd be most interested.  I am also interested in felting, which looks pretty cool.  The Martha S website shows how to take wool and make it into these balls, including how to make spots and stripes.  Looks pretty neat.

Has anyone ever done any stuff with pom poms or with felting, and what have you done?Huh  I was thinking of aligning pom poms to make a purse of various colors.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Drills and Dremels on: September 14, 2003 05:22:21 PM
I was thinking of buying one of those Dremel tool things and was wondering if others had purchased one (or something like it) and what they used it for, and if they thought it was worth the money.  
10  UNITED STATES / Washington, D.C. / washington dc on: September 01, 2003 04:33:18 PM
