I've heard that some former employees may have not been the friendliest, but all of the people in the cafe are really cool.  It seems like there is a genuine interest here, and I think I might take it upon myself to start a monday night group.  We are open until nine.  Any takers?

I work in this really cute little cafe attached to a Yarn Store called the Yarn Garden here in SE Portland.  The coffee and tea is excellent but no one knows about us!  Please come in and knit with me!  We will be having live music this fall to help promote a knitting group.  Come to the Yarn Garden Sipperie at 14th and Hawthorne! 
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Edward Scissorhands shrine and more! on: March 20, 2006 05:37:56 PM
Here's my ode to Edward:

and a bit closer:

I encased the picture in resin
found the scissors at Micheals
made the heart cookie cutter with quilling paper and wire and lots of varnish

Here's another little shrine I made recently:

it says: hand in hand as lovers they stole out into the land of the living

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Feminist Toolbox (Women use tools too dernit!!) on: February 26, 2006 10:22:09 PM
katatonicP,  You are an awewsome crafter and such a thoughtful gift giver!  Your friend is lucky, and you have inspired me to glam up my tools and their housings!

When I moved out of my parents home, my dad gave me the toolbox that his dad, (grandpa) gave to him when he moved out!  I was so touched by this gesture because my dad is not much of a talker, he showed his love by making me change all the wheels on my first car,showing me how to check the fluids, helping me build shelves for my books, and empowering me with knowledge.  All of the tools included in the box are really old and sturdy.
The bigger toolbox was originally given to me, (by my dad) when I needed an art box and asked for it because he no longer had a motorcycle that the box was for.  Hence the racing stickers all over it.  Now have so many tools that I use it for it's original purpose again.
Four years ago I asked for a drill for Christmas and my dad gave the one pictured with extra drill bits!
Now I get excited in the power tool sections of stores.
After seeing the pics of your gift I want to glam up my boxes and tools!
I got this book a couple years ago for my best friend:

It's got your basic how-to's for any girl to fix things around the house on her own, and all of the drawings are of women. I guess the cover features the propaganda issue that acetoneends mentions,
that said, i have to say, and i mean no disrespect to your work, but, Rosie and other war-time images of women working are often not empowering for women.  They are propaganda pure and simple.  The women always have their hair and makeup perfect behind their bandanas and welding masks... the message behind their images was, "you need to work for the war, but as soon as you're done, go back to your home because that's your real place in society."  Our society, however, does not often look past propaganda so culturally we've accepted these images as feminist...
but I don't mind because I like to dress up and wear makeup for myself and the fun that I can have with it.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: christmas on the cheap... on: September 16, 2005 10:06:18 AM
I have a friend who was constanstly bringing over his photos to show me when he got his camera, so for his birthday I made him a scrapbook for his photos.  I also included some frames for the pictures I cut from paper, photo corners, stickers, and other general scrapbook items to get him started, and of course a crafting date for the both of us.  He was really stoked on his gift and now he show his photos off in style!

something really easy and cheap for your "cabbie" might be some music compilation cds for your drive...
