1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Making Tablets from Scrap Paper on: April 12, 2005 09:56:35 AM
I make it a point, both at home and work, to try to use paper on both sides before I recycle it.  However, this leaves me with piles/boxes of paper that's been used on one side (mostly stuff from the printer), and I end up with pages and ripped bits all over the place as I jot down notes, make lists, etc. with the scrap paper.

I would love to be able to take half-sheets of this scrap paper and bind it into tablets so that I can use it more conveniently and with less chaos on my desk.  Does anyone know how to bind paper into tablets?  It seems like it's just a matter of how to do the strip-of-glue part at the top...I'm just not sure what kind of glue to use, or how to do it in a way that will hold together, but still allow pages to be ripped off easily.  I've tried using Google for answers, but came up with nothing.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do you wear your scarves? on: March 25, 2005 02:29:50 PM
I've been knitting for a few years now, and I loooove making scarves.  I usually have 2 projects going at any given time - one scarf, and one more complex thing that involves shaping, following a pattern, etc.

The problem is, now I have a bunch of scarves, but I am a bit of a dork when it comes to wearing them.  I have 2 standard ways to wrap them:  1) the boring ol' wrap the sucker around your neck, and 2) fold the whole thing in half, put it around your neck, and put the tails through the loop.  These both look ok for regular I'm-outside-and-I-don't-want-to-freeze-to-death purposes, but I would like to learn some more creative ways to tie a scarf that would look nice for I'm-indoors-at-work-and-don't-I-look-French-and-fancy-in-my-colorful-scarf purposes.  I just bought a really cool thin linen scarf at a thrift store that I would like to wear indoors.

Any ideas would be welcome.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Cool paint by numbers kits? on: March 14, 2005 12:33:12 PM
I've been thinking lately that it would be fun to take a break from my knitting and pick up a paint by numbers kit.  However, all the kits I've seen at craft stores, online, and even at a couple of toy stores I've checked out are LAME.  I do not want geese wearing bonnets, horses in a meadow, kittens lounging on a windowsill, etc.  Come to think of it, this is the same reason I haven't done any cross-stitching in the past decade.   Does anyone have a source for cool paint by numbers kits?  Also, has anyone tried the paint by numbers wallpaper from Jenny Wilkinson?  They are supposedly available at Target, but I haven't checked it out yet.
