1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / bag for guys?? on: May 06, 2005 06:52:45 PM
a friend of mine was complaining about how he wishes it was socially acceptable for a guy to carry a purse, because there are things he wishes he had the capacity to carry with him, like a camera, phone, and waterbottle. the only problem is, how do you make the bag "manly" enough to avoid odd glances or feeling personally awkward? i'd just like to know if anybody has patterns, tutorials or any other links for a man bag. if i could find one, i'd totally make it, and maybe it could become the social norm! thanks
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / mosaic pot repair on: February 27, 2005 03:44:48 PM
a chunk got broken out of this terra cotta pot, and i had a little plate that had broken, so i used the pieces of the plate to fill in the pot. all i had was hot glue to put them together with, but i think it looks alright. here are pictures:

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / using sumi ink for the first time on: February 25, 2005 10:39:17 AM
my assignment for art class this week is to make figures (human forms) with japanese sumi ink. i have the ink and brush as well as a stick i sharpened to a point, but i missed class last week and don't know where to start! i know you incorporate water somehow, but i don't want to use too much water or too much ink--i only have a little bottle, and it's expensive stuff. i'll experiment a little bit, but if anyone can help me get started the right way, i would appreciate it. you'd be helping me with my homework!  Wink

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Henrietta, my sock monkey. on: January 15, 2005 07:53:14 PM

her eyes are made of pearlescent buttons and i hotglued a little glittery heart to her chest.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / mini cardboard chest of drawers on: January 06, 2005 07:57:46 PM
this is what i ended up making with the little cardboard boxes i posted here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21575.msg175527#msg175527:  a little chest of drawers that fits on top of my desk!

it is 8 inches high with seven little drawers in it, perfect for storing little things like buttons, coins, makeup items and other miscelaneous tiny junk that would otherwise be lost:

it's just bare cardboard right now (i believe the boxes originally stored oil pastels) but i may decorate it later. here it is being useful on my desk Smiley

6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / little cardboard boxes on: January 04, 2005 06:27:10 PM
these boxes were free outside of a local art store. there were a lot more but i only had so much room in my bag, so i grabbed seven of them:

they are about 3.5"x4.5"x1" and open as shown:

i got them because i figured i could do something neat with them... exactly what, i am not sure  Tongue good thing this board is here, so all you crafty people can help me brainstorm!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first two scarves on: December 29, 2004 04:44:05 PM
i made these scarves a while back, but i just recently got a digital camera so i took pics of them today! they are both garter stitch.

this is my first scarf. it's made of a green acrylic yarn with mulitcolored flecks. here's a detail:

my second scarf is also acrylic, but thicker and softer... and striped!

and here is a detail:

i hope to learn how to increase, decrease and knit in the round soon so i can make something besides scarves, but i like these two! Smiley
