ah I didn't even think about north market. I'm not sure if an upscale place would really hire me as I have dreads and stuff and might look sort of "weird".

there's a jo-ann's around here?! the only one I know about it on west broad street!
2  Ohio / Ohio: Central / Columbus crafty jobs? on: January 17, 2006 01:12:55 AM
Hey, I hope this isn't considered innapropriate for this forum but I am rather desperate. I live in the OSU campus area and it's REALLY hard to find a job right now. I need to actually start paying my boyfriend some rent so I'm stressing out.

Do any of you know of any crafty/artsy-type jobs in columbus, preferably in the short north/campus/clintonville area (I have to walk/bike)? Annnything that you know of, any place hiring at all!
(And in all honestly it doesn't even have to be necessarily craft-related, I'd do most things really but I have to keep it relevant to CRAFTster...).

well, right now it's sitting over a heater vent drying out(I don't have a dehydrator OR a working oven!). I hollowed it and the insides are turning black (it's been a few days...still not dry yet!). I was thinking about taking  ablow dryer to it to speed up the process but I'm not sure what good that would do.
Afterward I'll probably coat it in something and hope for the best!

ahh it's awesome! I think the spider there would properly balance the piece out, but anything really in that area would do. I think the lightbulb idea, too.

that is so cute! miniture anything is pretty much bound to be adorable and this is no exception haha.
I wonder where one might find miniture paint brush charms! Wouldn't that be awesome...
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: looking for bones on: January 10, 2006 11:51:10 PM
I find lots of bones along the train tracks! it's usually opossum I think. That seems like the approximate size you're looking for?
Sometimes they're smashed, but usually lots of the bones are in okay shape. I'd wait until the animal is totally decayed and the bones have started bleaching in the sun or whatever. I get grossed out by fleshy stuff so I try to look for ones that don't have ANY sort of rotting material on them, but that's pretty hard to come by.
Collect and boil, then soak in bleach! At least that's what I do. I think you can use dish soap too.

I make lots of jewlery and things and put them in my dreads Smiley I usually just use the vertebrae though, they already have holes in them!
I'm actually vegan but to me it doesn't seem so wrong to adorn oneself with the remains of animal if you find it you know? Lots of people tend to disagree haha.

I had avoided rag-o-rama for a long time just because it seems like cheating! It's like picking all the good things out of a thrift store and putting it all in one place! I enjoy hunting around thrift stores for one or two neat finds rather than being overwhlemed with tons of shit that is nice but way too overpriced for a thrift store.

but...a few days ago I went with my friend to sell clothes, and he got some store credit and had to shop around for awhile. I ended up looking at things and I found some really cute stuff, and it wasn't ALL ridiculously expensive like I'd though. You can get some decent deals there I guess.

Anyway I usually just go to the thrift store across the street from giant eagle on high street....I think Ohio Thrift? It's one of the only ones within walking distance of me. I always find what I need there.
8  Ohio / Ohio: Central / Re: what are your favorite independent stores in Columbus?? on: January 10, 2006 04:56:37 PM
ah that wexner center book store is crazy, I think I go in there and drool on their collection of art books and magazines a little to often...since i never really buy anything (rather expensive) I think they might get annoyed or something. haha.

if I had money I'd buy a large portion of that store.
sunflower foods is good and decently priced for health/vegan friendly food.

wow I've never been to or even heard of Bytantium but I'll definitely have to check it out sometime.
there's this cute little gift/jewlery/other stuff shop on high street near bernie's and the wexner center...I think it's called Ruby's? They have really neat stuff in there! And an awesome cat...

Is the book loft that used book store on high street that is sort of messy and cluttered with a little cat...or maybe dog...lounging around inside? I think I've been in there once, such an awesome place with tons of character!

Do any of you know of antique shops in the campus/clintonville/short north area? basically anywhere along high street? I'm not much of a shopper but I could gawk at interesting old stuff for hours.

ohh wow sounds awesome, I'll definitely try to stroll on up there once it's nice enough outside. er...at least not raining.
