you have the coolest handwriting

Thanks!  I was actually proposed to at a bar on the basis of my handwriting skills only.  Strange that my parents and coworkers find it unreadable...
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Arrested Development Swap Gallery on: February 24, 2006 10:09:34 AM
I received my package in the mail today!  I can't seem to find my camera to take pictures.  I got an apron with George Michael on it that says "Maebe isn't good enough," some marble magnets, some dangly earrings and a jean purse that has a picture of cut-offs on it and says "there are literally dozens of us."  I'm super excited to wear the apron and try not to get it too dirty.
3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Arrested Development Swap (CLOSED ; MAIL BY 2/17/06) on: February 19, 2006 11:58:00 PM
I sent mine on the 17th, I just didn't get around to telling anyone about it until now, I sent amerigirl the tracking number.  I am super psyched to get mine!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Nerdy Goodness for my Lab Partner on: February 08, 2006 12:53:24 AM
I have a shirt like that! I bought it at hollisters on sale for $8.  It has an atom in the background.  I love it and wear it all the time.  Yours is much craftier.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: magazine bowls (first project post!) TUTE ADDED!!! (have pic hosting issues..) on: January 30, 2006 03:19:13 AM
I absolutely love this!  It would be super easy to modify (like making a lid) and turn te process into all sorts of things!  Coasters, trays, paper plate holders, the list could go on and on.  Now, to find those magazines....
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Can I paint then use a transfer? on: January 16, 2006 05:40:35 PM
I went to staples today to buy some dark transfer paper for transfering to a green shirt.  They were about 5X's as expensive as regular transfer paper.  My question is has any one tried to paint a white background on a shirt (like you would if you were stenciling) and then put the transfer on top of the paint?  Wouldn't that work just as well?  I guess I don't understand what does into the dark transfer process, but in theory, I think this would work just as well.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: Make your own beads on: January 11, 2006 12:49:45 AM
On this website they have beads on this necklace (zoom in) and I'm trying to figure out how to make something like this. I'm thinking there must be some sort of tool you could use to punch out little shapes from the pop bottles.  Maybe a leather punch??  If anyone has any further input I would be interested.

Thanks all! Since I already have most of the supplies I'll probably make a ton of these to give to my sis for Christmas, she always needs more picture frames.

You can usually get strung sequins at any fabric/craft store.  I'm sure you could even find limited varieties from Wal-Mart.
10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES / Floating Picture Frame on: December 11, 2005 06:55:34 PM
My inspiration for this project came from all those $20 frames you see at target that make the pictures look like they are floating.  Well, I made these ones with two pieces of plexiglass.  (I already had the plexi but it probably would have cost around $2 for the amount that I used.) I drilled some holes, then I screwed them together with flat sided machine screws (98 cents) and some wing nuts ($1.96).  I hot glued magnets (already had) on the back, but really you could use any hanger.  I also sanded the edges of the glass and colored them red with a sharpie to make them stand out a little more.  You can't really get the whole effect from the picture, but trust me, it looks awesome in real life.  

I needed some help from lady liberty because I only had two magnets, and plan to get more so that it will stay up better.

Here's a picture with the flash.  

The back.

Sorry the pictures are a little fuzzy, they never look that way on the 1" display on the camera.
