12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: My Xmas shell ornaments :D on: August 08, 2011 01:27:40 PM
These are great.  I just got back from a week at the beach with a large pail of shells.  I was planning to make some ornaments or something with them.  But where did you find the tiny starfish?  That's a great touch.

These are wonderful!  I want to ask you, are the snowmen's arms just made from ribbon? 
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Need help/advice for painting glass ornaments on: July 14, 2011 09:15:58 PM
Hi all.  I need your help/advice with a problem.  I have been trying to paint glass ornaments and they are just not coming out right.  I have been using acrylic paints from the craft store (Michael's / AC Moore) I've tried the paint straight and watered down.  The balls look good until after they've dried and then there are streaks or globs of paint on the bottom or sides. 
I have tried adding little bits of paint at a time and shaking like crazy to get coverage but get the same results. 
So, what am I doing wrong?  Should I be using a different type of paint?    What have you all had good results with?

Thanks   Judy
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I don't want to be afraid anymore! on: October 17, 2010 12:54:43 PM
I admit I was always afraid of cables myself, even after knitting for like 15 years and I had made sox and sweaters with all sorts of other designs in them.  Finally sat down and did it and really, cables are only patterns of knit and purl stitches.  You just have to use plenty of markers and keep a good count - to avoid ripping things out over and over again (ah, experience!)   The other thing I learned from a friend was to knit both sleeves at the same time squished onto the same needles so that the patterns always matched up.  Worked out great and worth the extra work!

I made a blanket like that a few years ago, alternating colors of the scarfts and then stitched them together sort like you would with granny squares.  I made it as a gift and they loved it.

This is the kind of insert or imbed or whatever it's called I was talking about. 


If this link doesn't work the store is whimsicalgalerie.com.   on the left click soaps, scroll down to holy-matrimony.  There's a bride/groom in the center of the soap.  This was a large loaf that was being cut into bars. 
Would love to be able to make something like this for my daughter's wedding next year.
Any ideas???

19  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from Northern Virginia on: October 11, 2010 11:09:01 AM
Hello, my name is Judy Henderson.  I'm in the Northern Va area.  I do many types of crafts.  
I am new to this website and new to the craft vendor arena.  I just started this year selling soap, childrens knit items and Christmas Ornaments.  

Anyone one else in Northern Va area?  I would love to find someone to share ideas, info, etc with.

This site has been a wonderful source of info.  Thanks to all.

Oh, yeah, I've been knitting since high school, also crochet, sewing is somewhat limited, cross stitch, scrapbook, make soap, candles,. and whatever else catches my eye and interest!
20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Question about soap molds on: October 02, 2010 01:45:46 PM
I'm pretty new to soap making and I'm not even sure what to call these things, so I hope you all can help me here!
I am looking for soap molds/loaf pans/tubes and the insert of whatever it is that you use to make a shape that runs through your entire loaf.  Does that make sense?

I was at a craft show and one place had loafs of soap she was cutting to order, one loaf had a rubber duck shape in the middle of it (not an actualy toy) another had a palm tree, etc   
Hopefully you all know what I'm trying to describe here and what to call these and where to find them.

Thanks Judy
