1  UNITED STATES / Wisconsin / Elkhorn Flea Market? on: April 15, 2008 05:33:35 AM
Hey, has anybody been to the Elkhorn Flea Market? I read that it's an "antique" flea market, but just how antique are we talking here? The "grandma" type antiques that you see behind glass cases or is it just neat old stuff, like soda crates and washtubs? Any info would be great.

4  Wisconsin / Wisconsin: Southeast / have you been a vendor at art vs. craft before? on: September 05, 2006 01:30:06 PM
i have been accepted to be a vendor at "art vs. craft" in milwaukee, which is a pretty big show. this will only be my second show ever, the first one was handmade market in chicago.

has anyone ever had a booth at art vs. craft? i am having a hard time deciding just how much inventory to bring along. i am thinking along the lines of 50 journals, 250 gift tags, about 100 greeting cards and also a bunch of holiday card sets, about 60 pocketbooks, and a few other things. but then i start to think about the fact that there will be thousands of people there, so maybe this isnt enough? any suggestions would be great, especially if youve had a table there before. thanks!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / what else do i need to make this necklace... on: July 23, 2006 12:31:36 PM
hello there-

im no jewelry making expert, so im coming to you guys- i want to make simple necklaces for my bridesmaids since our wedding is very DIY oriented. i like this necklace and i want to make 3 of them with agate beads. my question is, besides the beads, what else do i need? i dont really know technical terms for anything, and i dont know what kind of material to use to thread the beads. any help would be appreciated, i know that i could probably figure it out on my own with some trial and error but im hoping to bypass that and just get it right from the start. im ordering from fire mountain gems but im holding off until i know everything i will need. i have my beads picked out but i just need to know what you would recomend as far as clasps, etc.

thanks a ton, i feel like an idiot asking for help with something that looks so simple but like i said, i dont have time to mess with trial and error! i need to make these things asap.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / coptic bound journal *updated* on: April 19, 2006 08:41:21 PM
i just finished this one too but didnt want to start a new thread-

this is my latest coptic bound journal, it has red trees on the kraft paper cover- i handcarved the trees a few weeks ago. it has 80 pages of 80 lb. drawing paper and is bound with rust colored thread.

i have a big fasination with trees...is that weird? Cheesy haha, i feel like such a nerd asking that! i dont know, it seems as if most of us are on the same page when it comes to liking things...i know a lot of crafty people say nature is a huge inspiration to them.


8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / question about paper... on: October 11, 2005 12:20:13 PM
alrighty, i did a search on here but didnt find exactly what i was looking for- i am about to start binding books and i finally have all the supplies i need...except for the MAIN one- paper for the pages. i dont really want to use cardstock but i will if thats what is recommended. i would like to purchase it in bulk and i am looking for something that isnt flimsy like printer paper. i have seen some paper on a few sites but they were all pretty expensive, and the bookbinding supplies sites dont even have any paper besides the stuff for the covers listed. the reason i dont want cardstock is because it usually runs on the expensive side. im looking for something that is durable enough to hold pictures but also good for writing/drawing. any suggestions would be awesome, regular stores or online stores, im up for anything.

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / gift for international friend on: June 25, 2005 10:50:55 AM
hello, i have a friend who i met two years ago at the place i worked at the time-he came to the u.s. to work with a bunch of other internationals. they stay for the summer and then go back home. well, he just came back for his 3rd (and im thinking his last) summer and i am trying to think of things to give him. (girls are so much easier!!!) ive looked on this board and saw some good ideas, but there were only 1 or 2 topics involving this, and they were mainly for exchange students or a person that they didnt know yet, while this person is already a friend. hes 22 if that helps, and he's from turkey. i was thinking some u.s. coins, but thats not really anything all that cool. any help would be great. thanks Smiley
10  Wisconsin / Wisconsin: Southeast / hey all you southeastern wisconsinites! on: June 23, 2005 11:33:37 AM
hey everybody,
ive been looking for crafty people to hang out with in the souitheast WI northeast IL area, and its just not happening. everybody is from milwaukee or chicago, and while i love both cities, i really dont have the time (or money for gas) to drive way out to the city. so im on a mission to find fellow DIYers to start a craft group near the border of wis and il. just getting together with somebody else who lives to make would be great- pretty much everybody i know thinks im retarded for doing the things i do. they dont understand why i dont like mainstream things, so needless to say we dont really have much in common. so if youre out there, leave a reply, because im starting to wonder if im the only one around here that likes to make things.
