1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / objects that are completely beaded on: August 10, 2010 09:56:58 PM
Can anyone explain to me how one beads an entire object?  I saw in a magazine once a pair of cowboy boots that was covered with seed beads and a totally awesome design.  I'd like to try something like this, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how they attach the beads short of gluing them on!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / sorry to be a dunce... on: January 14, 2010 06:53:47 PM
but what is ATC?  I've seen it on several pages but cannot figure out what exactly ATC stands for.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Woodcrafts? on: August 31, 2009 05:37:37 PM
Is there a board for wood projects?  You know, like woodworking, wood carving, making twig furniture, etc.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Where's the Woodstock swap?? 40th anniversary!! on: August 14, 2009 05:30:22 AM
Ok, I was only a year old when it happened, but I have the spirit of Woodstock!  So, just wondering if anyone's thought of this yet?  Come on people!!  :p
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Cake Table on: August 13, 2009 01:16:40 PM
Ok, this is my first post showing something I made w/pictures, so I hope it works!  This is a wedding cake table I sewed up for a friends' daughter's wedding.  It's a cake table that's supposed to look like a cake.  The first pic is from a distance and shows glued on string of pearls at the bottom, as in icing, and the second pic shows the tops edge with more fake frosting!  I was quite happy with it, but now looking at the pics I see some unevenness in parts of it.  I hope you like it! **crosses fingers and hopes the links work!**

P.S:  can anyone tell me how to put pictures directly on my post without having a link?  I've seen lots of posts that you pull up and get to see the pictures without having to click on a link and go elsewhere.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Newbie swap? on: July 31, 2009 09:54:54 PM
Hi, I'm new here and was wondering if there's a newbie swap available for people just starting out (I know, I have a bit of a wait before I can but I just want to get to know this system ahead of time)?  You know, like only doing couple of items instead of many so as to not feel overwhelmed?  I'm afraid of that happening and then me freaking out and ruining someone's expectations Sad  Maybe like a trial-run swap?
7  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / The Golden Rule on: July 31, 2009 09:37:29 PM
I searched and didn't find a topic that mentions this subject, so here it is.  I had replied to a post of mine asking about this system, then decided it merited its own post.  I got this link from threadmagazine.com and was wondering if anyone's tried it, as I would like to get this system eventually.  Here is the link:  http://www.lutterloh-patterns.com/?gclid=CJe-k43QgZwCFRBbagodCG3D-A

There is a demo video on it which is quite fascinating!

Please share with me what you all think, or if anyone has done this, how they like it and should I spend my dwindling resources to purchase this?
8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / New girl! on: July 31, 2009 06:29:54 PM
I HEART Craftster!!  Everyone's been so nice to me, so I guess I HEART you all, too!  Well, about me...I try to learn many things.  That has its upside (never bored) and its downside (jill of all trades, master at none AND it can be expensive).  The one thing I cannot do is knit and rubber stamping/memory book thingies.  Correction, I've never tried the rubber stamping, because I KNOW I'll go overboard on it and spend hundreds of dollars on it then grow bored of it and drop it.  The knitting, well...I'm a crocheter and I CANNOT get the hang of using something without a hook!  I mean, the yarn just keeps popping off, what's that all about?   Huh  But, at least I tried it.

I come from a long line of crafsters, I learned crocheting and sewing from my grandma.  She was raised on a farm and they did everything by hand.  I try to use those same principles in my life, doing many things by hand (canning, quilting, sewing, bread-making, gardening, raising chickens, sheep and goats, etc.) because A. It's cheaper  B. I LOVE learning things (I wish I could get paid to be a professional student!) C. Things in the past few years or so seem like the world's headed towards a depression and I'm going to need these skills and D. It's just more fun!

About my family:  Married with a 19-year old daughter who is just as artsy fartsy as me, even better in some areas and is trying to go to art school this fall.  I have a 17-year old son who is has been away at camp all summer as a counselor at a Christian camp.  I now have a 3-year old terror (son) who is the light of my waning years.  (I'm only 41, but feel 60, especially after playing with him for an afternoon!)  Umm...that's about it.  Nice to meet all of you!!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sushi Horror Help!! on: July 31, 2009 05:57:50 PM
Ok, I tried to make my own sushi, got all the correct ingredients except for a rolling mat (would have to travel to the city to find any!) and, of course, it flopped miserably and ended up being a sushi salad (much like me having to make taco salads because I make a mess out of tacos, too).  So, is there an easy method for rolling your own sushi's or should I just break down and get a kit?  Also, I used canned tuna, so the taste was a  little off  Embarrassed
10  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Hi! New girl here, 1st post, pattern question on: July 28, 2009 08:23:47 PM
Hi everyone!  I'm new here, and am starting out making some summer tops from a pattern.  I've been sewing for a few years, on and off, so I still consider myself a newbie and can do fairly easy things (I realized that I just don't have the patience required to sort through pattern instructions, VCR user manuals, car radio instructions, etc.).  However, I'm going to try to overcome that deficiency in my character and try to get a little shop going on Etsy. My question is about my pattern.  I've used several over the years, but this is the first one (Simplicity 2666) that has a disclaimer in the instructions about not using the pattern in order to sell the finished clothing.  I think that's pretty weird, and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen something like this, and do you all think it's because of the growing popularity Etsy and of DIYers selling their stuff on it?
P.S:  I have some pics I'll show of my things as soon as I figure out the instructions for uploading pics!  *sigh* Embarrassed
