1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: broken ivory piano keys on: May 08, 2005 09:07:15 PM
My god, those look fun. Are they actually ivory? I'd assume so from your description, which makes me feel kind of funny, but I guess whatever died died a long time ago...

My first thought is carving - like old sailor's whalebone carving and whatnot. Or maybe you could do little portraits on them, like classical minatures with whatever subject matter you wanted. These kind of things really lend themselves to folky-craft type endeavors. But whatever - hope you have fun playing with them....
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Question about altering a journal cover... on: May 07, 2005 04:34:08 PM
I've got exactly the same kind of little journal! A surprising amount of things will adhere to them - I've got mine painted with regular acrylic paint and it's just peachy. Adhesives specifically for cloth work well, or hot glue if you aren't worried about permanence...

Just a warning: the binding on these things tears like mad. Be prepared to re-glue the pages to the cover in the future...
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Time Out painting on: April 14, 2005 10:02:23 AM
I really love the composition and the colors and everything - my first thought was 'Joni Mitchell'. I think it definitely has sort of a freedom/folky vibe to it. I'm not sure if I like the words all over the background and everything - they seem to draw attention away from the book. But I bet it looks different in real life  Smiley

I'd be really interested in the pattern for the second sweater from the right. It's strangely intriguing...almost like mathematical model or something...or maybe I'm just a dork...
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Mr Spock: Humanoid Computer, or Vulcan Sex God? on: March 20, 2005 10:21:42 AM
I made the stencil, thanks to the magic of Photoshop. I'm thinking of posting it, but the file's on my mother's computer at home and I don't have access to it right now...
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: I glued my dog to my.. on: March 19, 2005 04:13:22 PM
Your dog is gorgeous! I can kind of see why you'd want her coated with rhinestones...probably good that the cellphone's off, though...

Finished my first stencilled shirt a couple of months ago...I'm so proud of how it's managed to survive that long under my brutal care (I'm not kind to my laundry), and  now I want to show off...

I'm thinking of adding text to say "Logic is a wreath of pretty flowers that smell bad", which would make me giggle in geekish delight every time I put it on. All I'm saying is that $4 shirts at Hobby Lobby are the wave of the present...
8  CANADA / British Columbia / Re: HUGE paper crane project (help needed) on: March 01, 2005 10:15:56 AM
Oh, that's such a great idea. My roommate and I folded a thousand cranes last year - it's actually surprisingly easy to accumulate them, if you make it a habit while watching tv or movies...I'll see if we have any left to send you.

Cranes kick ass.

"I recently finished a degree in printmaking, I also co-own a small vegan bondage gear company, hence the belt and collar."
Vegan bondage? Like, non-leathery goodness? That makes my life happy!
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: New Vegetarian on: January 17, 2005 01:53:37 PM
Congrats on going veggie! I've been a vegetarian all through high school (four years plus), and it's great to hear of others making the same choice.

You've got a lot of great suggestions for cookbooks and stuff here (I LOVE Moosewood cookbooks - the Italian Tofu Salad in the Moosewood Daily Special is basically my tuna fish), so I thought I'd mention that it's not at all hard to adjust recipes for carnivore-food into vegetarian ones. They make so many veggie meat substitutions - fake sausage, hamburger, chicken, hot dogs, lunch meat, etc - that you can toss in to replace the actual meat. Also, tofu (firm, non-silken tofu, after being pressed between two plates with something heavy on top of it, which drains it of water) can be used in place of chicken in quite a lot of recipes, although it doesn't cook quite the same and it's best to experiment with it. If you freeze the tofu, the texture becomes very meaty...
Also, a lot of recipes work fine if you just leave out the meat altogether.

*Just in case you don't have too much money in the cookbook-fund*
