1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: wrist cuff swap? on: April 15, 2005 10:55:01 AM
I'd be down for a wrist cuff swap.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Shaving Cream Cards-- MUST TRY! on: February 22, 2005 12:09:58 PM
Very, very cool. That'll help a lot with creating cool paper effects in collages. Oh the possibilities of shaving cream.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: Wild animals have attacked my living room furniture! FUN!!! on: February 22, 2005 12:03:26 PM
I really like the pink layered over the print. Very cool idea. Sometimes I forget just how transparent tissue paper is in decoupage until someone uses it in a cool way. Very nice.
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Glass blocks (construction) on: February 11, 2005 12:56:37 PM
If you're not opposed to having a bar, you could construct a bar out of wood, but leave off the front. Use the glass blocks to create the front of the bar, then if you put a row of blacklights behind them, they'll glow like crazy giving you incredibly funky lighting in your new party pad!

Have you considered the new chalkboard spray paint? If you painted the sides and top with the black chalkboard spray paint they could scribble day and night and all you have to do is wipe it down. You could paint the shelves and the inside of the unit a bright color to keep the black from sucking out all the fun in the room. And if they create a true masterpiece you want to keep forever, just spray it with a clear sealer.
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: lo-tech stripes on: February 01, 2005 01:39:15 PM
Very Cute!! Such a simple idea, and it doesn't have that homemade look like the previous "indescribable" post
7  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Re: Minnesota Girls zine swap! on: January 26, 2005 09:17:50 AM
I was actually going to ask the same question. What kind of zine are you looking to put together? I'm in Mankato (not that far off). I'm new to the site as well, although I have been checking it for ideas for a couple of months.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: what are you listening to whilst crafting? on: January 26, 2005 09:02:37 AM
Classical music of course. And by that I mean: Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, the Ramones, Led Zepplin, the Grateful Dead, and some local bands we have here. Like WookieFoot, Leftover Salmon, etc.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Necklace Swap on: January 25, 2005 01:46:08 PM
I would be incredibly interested! Most of the necklaces I make are hemp, but they definitely have beads! Unfortunately I've been coming here for a long time, but never knew you had to be a member for a month until you can do swaps. I won't be eligible till Feb 24th.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Dorm Dilemma - all rules that could possibly apply, do. :( on: January 25, 2005 01:14:33 PM
Oops, I screwed something up. Anyway! 3M mounting strips. You need to become closely and intimately acquainted. They saved my dorm room multiple times. They have mounting tape that removes with no residue and won't rip off paint. They also have clips for holding electrical wire (Great for putting up X-mas lights!) and hooks that hold up to 10 lbs.

Other than space the biggest problems with a dorm room are lighting and the fact that you feel locked in a cave. I suggest creative lighting (Xmas lights, lava lamps, thrift store finds, etc). To make more room for decore stuff all the crap you don't need every day in underbed storage boxes. Huge floor cushions are really all you need for extra company. Why bother with seating? Everyone will be on the floor eventually. It's the only place with room! Get funky fabric from Goodwill or the Salvation Army. Hang fabric from your closets, over the windows, above your beds as a canopy. Get some color into your room and it will instantly feel more homey.

I also suggest a couple of plants, or a fish tank. Bring some nature into your room! Look in other forums for ideas on how to make a cool mobile and other window decorations. I also used to buy old 45's (small records) at the thrift store and stuck them all along the upper edge of the wall as a border.

Good luck!
