1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Inkjet your headboard! on: June 09, 2007 01:15:43 AM
We all desire an elegant iron headboard, don't we? Unfortunately, we've just got a mattress on the carpet.  This is a passable alternative.  Lets print out our possessions!

I did this in Adobe Illustrator, but I'm sure the infamous Rasterbator could be equally useful.  http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/

I am curious to hear other ideas about possessions which could and should be reproduced in this fashion.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / NPR Show on "Crafters" on: January 12, 2006 02:34:30 AM
"Morning Edition, December 27, 2005 Commentator Susan Orlean[yeah.  From Adaptation] visits a AC Moore, a craft store in Framingham, Mass., to talk to crafters about why they do what they do. She also encounters the store's craft guru, whose job it is to teach crafting, and to counsel those crafters who are stuck."


A great bit on the philosophical aspects of glue.

Neat show and great picture Susan Orlean's phone she modded up with Asian newspaper... Its pretty sweet.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Brainstorm on: December 18, 2005 05:17:04 AM
I have never done a swap so i should probably be ignored, But i am fascinated with the whole idea of them even existing!  I am not sure how these things are operated or whether there is a special place for this.  Hopefully this is being posted to the right spot   

I am sure you can relate...  Everyday I think of ideas for swaps... i figured it might share some

-A disposable camera swap... either use of base around the disposable camera imagery

-an ancient swap - references wll known ancient things(pyramids, cavemen that kinda thing) or things made to look ancient

-pennies - crafts where pennies are primary ingredient

-phobias - popular fears/each person could admit a phobia and their partner has must do something based on their specific fear.

-american history - I have a thing for presidental portraiture, i doubt I am the only one here... 

-Mondrian - have they done him yet?  seems like a perfect artist for craftster.  Everyone with modrian purses and dangling grids across their necks.  Ahhh

-Belts - everyone needs one, nobody needs one.  perfect opportunity to get crazy/creative! I think a belts with a comics across them would be sweet!

-Weapons-  this could be either silly and cartoony or dark... i think either decorative weapons or crafted working ones would be so cool. 

- an imitation swap - imitation of a sold/famous objects where the goal is opposite of orginality.  Possibly change their use...?

anyways... those are a few.. If someone is the god the makes these things happen tell me i am idiot, or whether I could make these happen...  Cause I might wanna throw down.

I love you

My brush holes were 1/2 inch cause brushes seem to be getting fatter and fatter (sedintary lifestyle I guess).  Though, by nature I think a hole of any size seems to work considering how toothbrushes tend to draft inward toward the bottom.  May not have that clean sunken look, but will fit in a hole. 

I think your toothbrush dilemma might call for an interesting craft involving one of these

a drill bit gauge tester.  They are a pretty unique piece of hardware, lots of interesting holders could be formed from them.  Perhaps each of the tiny ones could hold a q-tip or toothpick?
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Honeycomb Shelf on: December 13, 2005 10:50:50 PM
I am a freshman product design student in Chicago and had a bathroom shelving assignment.  I am generally happy with my final model, and thought there was something "craftster" about it...

Here is my sketch showing the shelving in  modular form and the hardware used.

and the single shelf!

Those inner pieces are removable and twist in using a threaded rod in between two of the flat nuts.  Those dotes on each side match up on every theorhetical module.  

Also there is no backing... In the pictures the shadow matches the gray paint used.

Any other industrial design students inspired by Craftster?

Yo Thumbelina, you gotta make me one of these.  A real fat, stuffed one.  We should swap!

This is real cool

   Egg and bug together make a very specific shape. Make an infested egg carton! Have you considered making another version of strictly wire? Have you ever seen Alexander Calder's wire portraits?
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Magazine page wallet (+ my first time with eyelets!) on: October 22, 2005 04:47:11 PM
Wow thumbs!  Sweet wallet! What magazine is this from?  For some reason it makes me think of that white room from A Clockwork Orange, the 70s type I guess.  Plus: You are loaded!  You must be a school teacher to be makin all that loot.  Cry
