1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Not So Much a Business as a Swap Site on: February 03, 2006 01:50:38 PM
(If this is the wrong forum for this, I apologize and will correct immediately.)

Has anyone else done this?

I started a Yahoo Group for the express purpose of bartering rather than selling items (mostly because I didn't want to deal with the cash aspect, and I liked the concept of trading what I didn't want for stuff that other people didn't want). I affectionately call it a "cashless garage sale."

It's been going really well so far ... I've traded old jewelry for books and BPAL imps (which is probably what I would have spent the money on anyway).

Has anyone heard of this before? Insights? Ideas?

Thanks in advance.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Oscar Party: Your Ideas? on: January 03, 2006 02:37:29 PM
Every year our department at work throws a party where we get together and watch the Oscars (yes, I know it's early to mention this, but I like to plan ahead, and I know good parties take time).

In the past, we have dressed in tacky formalware (aka old bridesmaid dresses), entered on a red carpet, and done quarter bets on the various categories.

Does anyone have any ideas or fun activities that have worked for you re. either Oscars or movie-themed parties? Any vendors or Web sites you like for inspiration?


(Above all, my goal is find a tacky look-like-a-big-cake dress!)
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Aunt Martha Needlebook (aka possibly a desperate cry for help) on: January 02, 2006 07:21:12 AM
The goal of this project was to: 1) try stitching on felt; and 2) create a needlebook like I had seen in Hip to Stitch to keep all my embroidery needles in one place.

I used Aunt Martha's transfer #3956 - Angel Tea Towel (http://sunbonnetsue.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=390&osCsid=85485b25c1eacf640edcd67806ae8016):

(I tried several times to get a clearer photo. Sorry!)

There's a very subtle bit of red in the eye to emphasize the dementia.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Dirty Laundry (aka My First Post by Kenner) on: December 28, 2005 06:39:17 PM
So excited to see a group of people who love Sublime Stitching as much as I do!

Here's one of my first projects: a dirty laundry pillow case (to, you know, hold dirty laundry when we're on a trip)

Here's to more stitching!
