1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: photo placement to resemble a classic photo album - how do I avoid gridlock on: May 17, 2013 10:35:52 AM
Assuming you are working on a 12 x 12:

3.5" high - you can't fit more than three vertically
5" wide - you can't fit more than two horizontally

Mathematically, your options are:

2 x 2 block of photos with equal borders, tiled - either vertically centered, aligned top, or aligned bottom.

2 photos across top, 2 photos across bottom, with your labels in the center.

1 photo per quadrant, centered in each quadrent. (I don't think this would be particularly aesthetically pleasing).

Three photos stacked either left or right, feature photo in opposite column, 2/3 up page.

Two photos across the page, vertical center aligned, with a photo aligned above the one on the left, and a photo aligned below on the right; or mirror of this.

Cross pattern - two photos across page, vertical center aligned, with a photo above and below, center aligned.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Slippery hats, what to do? on: November 01, 2012 12:16:56 PM
You could get a tube of clear silicone caulking (for use in bathroom renovations, etc.) and put dots of it on the inside of the band of the hat.  It wouldn't feel tight because the bits are not continuous - they are just grippy bits.  Let it dry thoroughly before wearing.  It would be machine washable once dry.

This could also help retrofit existing headwear in her collection.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: How to Lock up a Backpack? on: January 10, 2010 04:04:06 PM
I would punch a side-by-side pair of grommets in the canvas at the zipper "closed" position.  I would then run the padlock in one grommet, out the other, and through the hole on the end of the metal zipper pull (where the fabric pull loop attaches.  If your padlock doesn't have a big enough lead, you could splice or crimp a loop on each end of a piece of steel cable, run that through the aforementioned path, and padlock the loops.  The tighter the path, however, the less play the zipper will have.

One slightly subtle way of linking to the theme would to pick menu items featured in the book - treacle tarts, pumpkin juice, boulliabaisse, etc - foods mentioned for the feasts.

Stars across the ceiling would be a nice touch, too.

We used cookie cutters (hearts, daisies and airplanes - you can pick whatever fits you theme / is meaningful to you), and attached our favourite recipe on a tiny card.  Cookie cutters were $0.99 each plus tax, I had cardstock laying around, and raffia was $1 for more than enough for all of the favours.

We liked it because they were personal (recipe, theme), unusual and useful but still quite inexpensive!  I was also able to buy the cutters through a small, local business, which was nice.

Assuming you are talking about smaller sanders hurting your hand, you can rent giant sanders designed specifically for refinishing hardwood floors.  They get the job done pretty quickly.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Another scrappy recycled quilt for a new baby... on: August 03, 2009 08:22:14 PM
I love this!  It's got a simple, understated look that has a ton of style.  The yellow and red solids really pop.

The quilting looks fantastic.  Did you measure at all, or just eyeball?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Engineering the Future (one tshirt recon at a time) on: May 12, 2009 06:07:38 PM
That's a much closer fit now! 

Cheers to IEEE.  It does great things for engineering, and engineering students.

I actually really like the brown - you needed the dark tone to balance the piece.  Too many fabrics with the same tonal value lose their impact.

If anything, I think the two orange-y fabrics are far too similar, particularly because they are next to each other.  They blend together, and you lose the shapes.  I would suggest a darker value green print to replace it.

What about Guylian's Seashell chocolates?  Do they have them where you live?  They are delicious, and inexpensive.  http://www.guylian.be/en/products/boxed-chocolates/sea-shells-original/
