1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Looking for crafty wedding jewelry! on: April 13, 2005 10:21:26 AM
Anyone want to recommend themselves, their websites, or their friends for hand-crafted jewelry, specifically necklaces and earrings for me for my wedding attire?  I am having a fall wedding too so bonus points for fall colors or themes (like leaves).

Thanks!  I'd rather give money to you gals than the wedding industry!
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Ways to incorporate a Safety Pin on: March 23, 2005 08:08:35 AM
Now, this sounds ridiculous, but bear with me...

We were thinking about including some sort of card or something that tells the story of how my guy and I met, as many don't know.  He grew up in Massachusetts, me near Chicago.  We met when his band was touring and played a house show I was invited to by the guy I was sort of seeing at the time.  Well, that guy completely ignored me and I talked to Jesse all night.  Before he left, he took a safety pin off of his jacket and put it on the collar of my shirt to let me know I hadn't imagined our encounter.  =)

Can anyone think of a cute way to include a safety pin/story with a favor or something for all the guests?  I'd write the story out better, of course.  I guess I could just pin a safety pin to a little print-out of the story, but I'm looking for any other ideas.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Crafty Place Card Holders? on: March 23, 2005 08:05:45 AM
Is there a clever idea out there I'm not aware of?  Luncheon wedding.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Trinket/3-D collage/assemblage item swap? on: February 17, 2005 11:35:57 AM
I'm always looking for new trinkets and treasures and junk to use in assemblage and 3-D collage projects - I have a treasure trove of old keys, bits of metal, small animals figurines, parts of old jewelry, etc. 

Would anyone be interested in swapping boxes of junky crap like this?  I'd like to avoid a box entirely of gumball trinkets, but make it more like a plethora of bits and pieces you might not find any use for.

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Spring Craftshows in Midwest/East Coast? on: December 20, 2004 11:37:37 AM
Any knowledge out there?  I'm trying to prepare for the new season -the things we've been doing are all at the ends of the year...
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Stiff wire choker? Neck Hoop? Memory wire choker? on: August 23, 2004 01:30:06 PM
I'm trying to find jewelry supply places online that carry neck hoops - you know, those stiff wire loops that open in the back that you can put beads or a pendant on. I DON'T want expensive sterling silver or anything - just a simple one will do. Does anyone have any leads or know what I'm talking about?

I would prefer a ready-to-bead item, not memory wire I could make a finished product out of.
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Yet more display brainstorming on: August 10, 2004 08:19:07 AM
One of the things I'm doing for the upcoming craft shows (Renegade, DIY, Flying Fish), are these small art pieces, about three inches tall, but flat. It would be nice to have them stand up, leaning against something. I guess I could get some kind of small molding and nail it to a board? Or is there a different solution?

I would also like to create small shelves of some kind.  How?

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Does anyone know where to find glass cane beads in the same size? on: August 05, 2004 09:15:06 AM
Usually these are sold in assortments - I want to ensure I get all the same size beads.  I'm new at jewelry searching, help me please, if you can!

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Figuring out how to incorporate hanging space on: July 21, 2004 08:22:19 AM
At the next three shows I'm doing, I want to incorporate some hanging space - I have some Christmas ornaments/rearview mirror decorations/necklaces/toys that are all meant to be hung, and it would be nice to display them as such (and I like to have things up off the table).  Any ideas?

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Pictures sticking together! on: July 08, 2004 09:08:52 AM
Oh crafty wizards, I need help...

Last night I went through my photo scrapbooks from college.  I found to my dismay that a lot of the pictures are stuck together - now I didn't use tape or anything, so why is this happening?  What can I do to get them unstuck the best way without ripping the paper?  And how to prevent this from happening?

Please help me, I'm so sad that my memories from only a few years ago are being destroyed....
