1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Tips for 52 reasons book? on: January 20, 2011 01:03:07 PM
I'm making my boyfriend a 52 reasons book and I am soooo excited and inspired after seeing everyone's awesome examples here!  But I just have some questions/would appreciate other ideas that you would like to share, and I'm sure a bunch of other people are making these for V-day so hopefully this thread can help others too!

1.  If you've made one, what font size did you find to work best? Ditto for pictures
2. What kind of glue works best?

Anyway, the vision I have in my head is to use one of the joker cards to make a cover and embellish it with a bunch of nail art stuff that I have lying around. 

What do you guys think?
2  Arizona / Arizona: Central / thrift stores on: July 28, 2008 12:53:24 PM
Are there any Buffalo Exchange-type thrift stores closer to the Glendale/Peoria area? I'm talking about the ones where you can take your lightly used items to trade for cash.  Undecided
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / the art of shrinkdinking on: December 12, 2006 12:32:06 PM
I understand the standard way to color a shrinky dink is with colored pencil, but I didn't like the pencilishness of the color after it got taken out of the oven.  I read on the website that acrylic paint also works, but it didn't shrink with the plastic when I tried.  Is there a secret, unknown method of coloring a shrinky dink that will yield nice, solid results?   Huh
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Darts??? on: August 04, 2006 12:43:34 AM
I've never made anything with darts so I am completely lost on the subject.  Normally if I don't know what to do while sewing I'll just wing it, but I keep hearing that darts are quite difficult and I don't think that would be very safe.  So I was wondering how everybody else does them... Huh
5  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Looking for a fabric store on: July 15, 2006 04:29:23 PM
My friend and I are looking for a fabric store in Phoenix or anywhere else in the West valley that sells something other than craft fabric like the type at JoAnn's.  (Taffetta, satin, other types of fabric for clothing design)  We are planning to go to Los Angeles as a last resort, so we are pretty hell-bent on finding one in town!  Does anybody know of a good place with a wide variety of fabrics? Smiley
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / ...what if I glaze it? on: June 08, 2006 09:04:58 PM
I have an idea for a present for a friend.  I can't elaborate just in case she sees this post, but basically I need something that's waterproof.  Smiley  It's not going to be submerged all hours of the day or anything, it just needs to be "wipe-offable" if it gets dirty.

Anyway, I think glazing it would fine, right?  I don't know what type of glaze works best with polymer clay, and which brands will be better at accepting it...I hope somebody who's had more experience can help me.  Huh
7  California / California: South / wholesale beads/jewelry supplies? on: April 04, 2006 08:41:04 PM
Does anybody know of any wholesale warehouses that carry jewelry-making supplies, particularly in the Los Angeles area???
8  Arizona / Arizona: Central / Bead stores? on: February 20, 2006 06:20:44 PM
Does anybody know of any stores that specialize in unique and unusual beads and charms?  I've tried the internet and the phone book, but I'd like to hear what people have to say about them.
9  Arizona / Arizona: Central / screenprinting equipment on: July 15, 2005 08:40:38 PM
*hopes this is allowed*

Well, my mom's looking to sell this 't-shirt printing thingy' that my dad bought back in the 80s to make printed tees for his t-shirt business.  But he doesn't use it anymore, and it kind of sits in my gramma's garage taking up a lot of space. 

I'm 15 and not familiar with t-shirt artistry, so please forgive my untechnicallish descriptions... Grin

Anywho, there's this spinny thing with a bunch of frames that come down onto the t-shirts, and you're supposed to press it with a spatula-type thing or something, and it spins around...I think we had 2 of them, but the one my dad used the most had 4 frames for 4 colors. 

There's also this huge black thing that's kind of like a conveyer belt and an oven put-together.  I think it dries the paint because the shirts go in wet, and then they come out dry.  Shocked  Haha, I just found out that it's called a dryer.  Go figure.

So I thought I'd give the Phoenix area craftsters the first dibs before I ebay the sucker.  Comment/pm if you're interested, and check back for updates, please.  If I get enough takers, I think I may have to post pictures, but my digital camera is whacko, so I don't know how I can do that...although I could borrow one...

Okay, I'm done.  Smiley
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Doll hair? on: June 07, 2005 08:03:52 AM
I was bored one day and decided to make a doll out of basic homemade baking soda clay.  She turned out better than I expected so I decided not to throw her out after all.  The only problem is that she is completely bald, and I have no idea what to do about hair.  Roll Eyes  Could anybody help me please?
