1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Anyone from around Reading area South East set up a craft group before? on: July 02, 2010 10:26:14 AM
Hello there! My name is alice and my favourite thing to do is craft. I feel like I'm developing my own style and learning a lot too! I would love to set up a small craft group, thats drop in and for creative people to meet up and share there work etc. I don't have much money or experience but there isn't anything like that here and I feel like a lone artist!

Has anyone got any tips for either starting a group or wants to?

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / What is the name of this type of paper,... I want some! on: May 30, 2010 01:47:32 AM
Ok, I have this photo album at home and it is beautiful  Smiley It's not mine though  Undecided and I love the paper but I don't know what its called. It's light brown, quite thick with a rougher texture than most. Each page has string tied onto it at each corner for a photo to slip in and theres tissue paper between each page. I think it was bought in India.

Any ideas of the paper type would be really good!

Ok, I have these wooden bowls, that are in my kitchen as there used for putting crisps and snacks in. There looking really worn out and were clearing out our house so its a case of- to save or not to save!

I could paint them or maybe sand them down? They don't have to be for the kitchen they could have a cool use in my craft room. Any ideas?

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: The end of lost gift on: May 22, 2010 03:01:02 AM
Ok so in the end I came up with a bunch of stuff!

I put a black bin liner over a cardboard box and made a white lid with card and paper. In the box I put:

A pop art painting of the characters
Some Dharma beer and food cases- these are the easiest things to transform into Lost themed food, you can search 'dharma food labels' in google and download some then print.
Character quiz cards- I printed a picture of each character (I chose 3 in total) and backed them onto white paper, then wrote on the back some questions about the character.
A paper plane- I made an ordinary paper aeroplane and coloured, painted, burned the paper and wrote random show quotes inside.
A fridge magnet- I altered a fridge magnet with card, some pretty paper, ribbon and paint and put on it a quote from Sawyer.

Hello it's the final of lost soon and I wanted to gets some bits together for the last episode as a surprise for my bf who got me into the show! So far I've painted a pop art pic of characters and put printed dharma paper around beer cans. I've had a look at the fish cookies so may do them. Any ideas would be great!

What's everyone else doing to mark the end of lost?

hello! I'm Alice and live in Bracknell and grew up in Reading! I've read this post and been to most of the places people are from. So glad theres some other craft fans in the UK! There isn't a lot of craft shops here, a few market stalls and hobby craft but nothing really really special! I do mixed media stuff, altering, visual journaling, bookbinding and love american crafts!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Blue room into office space ideas needed on: May 19, 2010 09:31:13 AM
Hello! I'm in the middle of having a big clear out in my house! One room I'm trying to makeover is the spare room and turn it into an office/study as my bf is starting his own business soon. So I thought I could make it over and make some stuff as a surprise anniversary present!

Ok, so the room is dark blue  Undecided the walls, the carpet- yep blue. The curtains are yellow and all furniture will be light brown wood. I don't need to worry about a desk but I'm thinking of what to put on the desk.. cool stationary ideas? I was also thinking of jazzing up the curtains a little so the don't look so 'the same'? I have a big blank canvas board too that I could paint and put up, but what is a cool painting to do that brightens up the room and makes motivation. I also have a slugish green sofa that I need to alter somehow, maybe with a throw?

I would love to paint the walls but I'm not too good for time and money, any ideas how to make a boys blue room into a cool office workspace or what colours go best with blue and yellow Embarrassed

Thank you in advance for any responses!
