11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Dont' mean to complain........ on: May 18, 2004 09:36:51 PM
     Sorry  I know its been mentioned before........

  But PLEASE! Post when you get your gift!!!!!  On three different occasions my swapees never posted if they received my gift!    It is just nice to have hard work acknowledged!!! (I hope this doesnt' sound stuck up! )

  And if you don't get your swap item out, or have to drop out, Let Someone Know!!!    Things happen beyond our control, so sometimes it can't be avoided until the last minute.  I know of numerous people not getting items!  Granted things get lost....... But if you drop out, please fess up, so your swap buddy isn't anxiously waiting for the daily mail.

  These things should just be common curtousy...........

Sorry I don't mean to bitch, but it is just frustrating when people who aren't serious about swaps don't follow through!  Alot of craftsters have been having to make EXTRA gifts to pick up the Slack! 
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / My Very First Purse! A Strawberry Shortcake Drawstring on: May 16, 2004 10:58:08 AM
    Here is my first ever purse! I am quite happy with it. I did make a few errors, but instead of be sad about it ( Angry), I just figured I'll correct it next time, and be happy with my accomplishment! I actually sewed it all by hand! (Since I am somewhat sewing impaired  Undecided)  Which with practice I hope to correct!!!!!!! Okay enough babble! Here is my purse......

13  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Craftster Chat Room? on: May 14, 2004 05:57:41 PM
  Would there be anyway to have a craftster chat forum, where we could visit, and talk crafts?  Pm'ing is fine, but it seems so slow some times, and it would be neat (at least I think so) to be able to discuss ideas in groups

just a thought
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / ummm, Jar and Salts project on: May 11, 2004 12:40:59 PM
  Okay, sorry if this doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but.................................

Years and years ago, I made this thing in library group (I was sooooooo cool! Cool  that involved a large jar, paper fish, a bunch of salts, food coloring, and .......................... here's where I need your help, I don't remember what else!  Embarrassed

  I know we added something to the mix, and put it in the bottom of the jar, and eventually, (over a few days) the salt "climbed" up the jar...... It looked kinda coral reefy.

  Does anyone know what I'm talking about! I want to make this again!!!! Undecided
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My Star Lamp! tutorial on: May 05, 2004 10:57:58 PM
This is my Paper Latern Star Lamp! [/color]

   I love those Paper Lamps so I decided to make one!




  Materials: Bristle Board
                Hole Punch, that punches out shapes (or you can cut out your own!)
               Tissue Paper
                Plastic Coated Wire
                Light cord with bulb

  This is the pattern for cutting out the "points" of your star.  You need five of them.


   I'll try to explain this as best as I can, if it's confusing let me know and I'll add pics.  
1- Trace the pattern onto your paper, and cut it out. (Have five of them)

2- Copy the placement of the solid lines on to you cut outs, by using a ruler and a exacto knife. Very lightly make your lines (do not cut right through the material, you just want to "scratch" it)  These are where you will fold the points of your star.

3- Make and Punch out the patterns on your lamp

4- Glue your tissue paper to cover the holes.

5- Carefully fold your star pieces along the scratched lines

6- Paint some glue on the outside of the lengthwise tab *which is located off the side of your star piece*
you want the glue on the "good looking side* of the paper.  Fold the star in half, pressing the tab down and allowing to dry.  Do this with 4 of the star pieces.

7- With the 5th one, before you fold it in half, make sure you cord is running along the inside fold

8- paint glue on the shorter of the tabs, and lay the pieces, one on top of the other. So you have a stack of star pieces.  Paper Clip down and wait for glue to dry.

9- Once the glue is dried, carefully pull the pieces around to form a star.  To secure the 2 end pieces, poke a small hole in each piece and draw it together with wire.

  Sorry if it is confusing! I'll try to take pictures as I'm doing it with the next one!

18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Frosted Glasswear Question on: March 11, 2004 11:04:48 PM
  Ok, this will probably sound really dumb to everyone but..................... I recently made a frosted snowman latern thingy


I used a white frosted spray paint made for glass.
Could this be used on glasswear??  Huh

 Sorry, its just the thought of etching cream kinda scared me off for now. And I thought that this would be more skin friendly

19  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Snowman Frosted Lantern on: March 11, 2004 02:03:57 PM
    Ok, I am slightly into Snowmen! I think they are great!  Cheesy  I still have to craft him a hat!


 Here he is all lit up!



  If anyone is interested all I did was buy frosted white spray paint (for glass) and attack an old fish bowl ( Jaws sadly passed away), and created a nose out of foam, and painted on some eyes!
 Very easy!
20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / My melt and pour Soap on: March 08, 2004 06:44:35 PM
  I have just started dabbling in soap making, and would love to try CP if anyone would like to share their recipe with me!  These are a few that I have made, The "tile" type soaps, were (I believe) miss roo's idea.  I thought they were cute so tried them out!  Smiley
