Read up.  I posted my source further up the thread.  Smiley
12  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Craftster Stalking on: July 05, 2006 06:42:57 PM
I know I'm not the only one that does this: I see a post I like, so I go look at the poster's previous posts and find lots of cool stuff.  To facilitate this sneaky little habit, would it be possible to make a feature like the bookmark that, instead of marking threads, marked specific Craftster members?  And (though I've read a post in the past that indicates lots of people craftster-stalk) would there be enough interest to make such a  feature worthwhile?

They're quite fun to make

Also, apologies- my roomate has been busy and the weather less than sunny, so I've yet to get the promised action shots.  Soon!

Ebay!  It's a specific seller, justsodapopscott, and they're all unused and wonderful.  I'm also willing to trade some of the bottlecaps I have left, and a number of the finished necklaces are available on my etsy.

I've been contemplating getting some people together to bid on one of his bigger auctions.  For example, he has lots of 1000 for an opening bid of $35.  I originally bought a lot of 100 for... I don't recall how much (they were around $0.15 each, I think), but now I want more.

And thanks to everyone for the feedback.  Smiley

I collect quotes.  I have three different fifty-page word documents of quotes.  I also have favorite poems.  I suppose I could spare a few.  Smiley  Do you have any particular tastes/subjects of interest?

From the sublime to the ridiculous is but a step. - Napoleon I

He who desires but acts not breeds pestilence. - William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

Not failure, but low aim, is crime.  -James Russell Lowell, "For an Autograph"

There is more to life than increasing its speed. - Mahatma Gandhi

Man: An animal [whose]… chief occupation is extermination of other animals and his own species, which, however, multiplies with such insistent rapidity as to infest the whole habitable earth and Canada. - Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

He who hesitates is a damn fool. - Mae West

Whenever I’m caught between two evils, I take the one I’ve never tried. - Mae West

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go, I travel for travel’s sake.  The great affair is to move, to get down off this featherbed of civilization and to find the globe granite underneath and strewn with cutting flints.   –Robert Louis Stevenson

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.  –Luciano de Crescenzo

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.  There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall.  Think of it… always.  –Mahatma Gandhi

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.  –Mark Twain

And, my favorite poems:

Self Pity by D.H. Lawrence

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.

Invictus by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

That's absolutely remarkable, and I can't imagine the commitment it must have taken.  You've got a very lucky (and, obviously, very well-loved) niece there.

Also, I want the garter.  Pretty!
17  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to teaching sewing on: June 27, 2006 08:02:26 AM
Different pattern and sewing companies have advice for teaching people to sew (after all, they could always use more customers); for example, this is Simplicity's.  You also might ask her to spend a some time with a practice sheet- take a piece of paper, draw lines and curves and squares and whatever on it, then unthread your machine (unless you really want to sew a piece of paper) and have her try and follow the lines.  The needle will poke holes to show her where she messed up, and it gives practice without using up lots of fabric.

And more!

I think I shall sell off most of them.  They're bright and pretty and fun, but I certainly don't need this many of 'em.

My roomate has already promised to be my action shot model.  I would have gotten said shots today, but the camera died on me in the middle of the photo session, and it takes far too long to re-charge.  Thank you, though!  I will try to get some action shots up tomorrow.
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bottlecap Necklaces on: June 22, 2006 08:56:47 PM
I only managed to get pictures of a few of these things before the camera I was using died, but I'll get the rest tomorrow and come back with them.  Yay for vintage bottlecaps!

WTF kind of name for a drink was "Up Town"?  Not that it's any worse than "Mountain Dew", which is neither dew nor of the mountains, but hey!
