But...  but...  the Religious Hazelnut!  I think your name could be lots of fun.   Grin
92  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Earring Binge swap! on: July 18, 2005 10:46:03 PM
WOW!  I just looked through this entire gallery and I'm so blown away (and a little jealous  Wink) by everyone's beautiful creations.  I love making/trading earrings and something like this would be so perfect for my first swap - is it at all possible that there might be a round two? Grin
93  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Name swap on: July 18, 2005 10:24:57 PM
This sounds neat!  I really loved reading this thread and seeing what everyone's names mean.  It's really interesting to me, because my name (Lila, pronounced LIE-lah)  has a lot of family history (I'm Lila Number Nine, haha) and waaay more meanings than I thought.

The English version (which, I found out, is a take on an Indian belief) is that Lila is the "joyful, playful will of God."
In Hebrew, it means "night," and in Swedish it means "purple" or "violet."  Grin

WOW, that's super rad!  I really love how you recycled the pockets from the old pants, too - I always end up tearing my hair out making pockets like that myself (it's the flaps, particularly - my machine gets cranky when I make it sew so many layers of thicker fabric).  Anyway, IT ROCKS!
and a tutorial would be very nice - or an approximation of the pattern, or a hasty sketch - y'know, whatever.  Wink

you're not alone, DithMer.  I love it! 

I searched for the sacred steak and WOW!  These have totally inspired me!

Wow, I'm really sorry everyone - but I just found out I WAS WRONG!  YAY!!  Apparently I fell for the rumors (passed to me by my DH, poor man), but just yesterday I saw a notice in the paper, put out by the folks at the Oldsmar Flea Market, stating that the market was NOT sold, nor are there any plans of selling it.  They're still open for business!
I sure feel like a fool for leading everyone on without knowing the truth myself, but I'm very happy I was proven wrong!

Hooray!  You should come and see me!
98  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: mispronunciations! 'fess up! on: June 06, 2005 11:34:45 AM
My most horribly embarrassing mispronunciation is, awfully enough, "sewing."  I catch myself saying it phonetically ALL THE TIME. 
It's all the more embarrassing, since it's a fairly recent development.  I used to say "sOwing" just like you're SUPPOSED to -- it wasn't until I actually started DOING it (and therefore, seeing it in print lots more) that I started mispronouncing the word.  Roll Eyes

Unfortunately, the Oldsmar Flea Market will soon be no more.   Cry

It will be a SuperTarget.   Angry

sorry, i got really upset about that. that bites

It was finally sold, to the tune of 23 million dollars.  Another victory for corporate development, and another loss for the old institutions I so love.   Cry

YAY!  I'm in Clearwater, in the vicinity of Drew St & Highland Ave.  I'm so looking forward to meeting other local crafty folks, since all of my friends are of the male (and non-crafting) persuasion  --  consequently, as a warning, i can be a bit uncouth and i do like my beer.   Roll Eyes  Grin

If any of you would like to meet up for some innocent ...umm... meetin'-up, you're welcome to stop by my work for a chat.   Wink  There'll be no crafting involved there, of course, since it IS work and I happen to do most of it in a rather small room surrounded by various herptiles/invertebrates...  Yup, I work at one of the last indie pet shops in the area --> PETS UNLIMITED on Drew Street (between Hercules & Keene).  I'm generally there in the afternoons/evenings.   

I wanted to let you know, just in case you did not already know..in clearwater off of 19 at the tri plaza..there is a craft store there which you stay there and create different crafts. Usually there are other people there as well. It isn't a big place. Check it out. I hope I had something to new share with you.
Do you have any idea where on US 19 it is?  What's it called?  The only crafty stores I know of on 19 are two JoAnn's (one by East Bay and one up by Curlew) and they generally aren't super-supportive of settling in and crafting (unless, of course, you pay for one of their classes). 

I love st. petersburg, i dont think anyone quite appreciates how lucky they are to live there.
I LOVE St. Pete - I actually live in Clearwater, which I hate, because it's something of a black hole as far as the arts or any kind of community go.  My boyfriend and I are/were actually looking to buy a house in the 'Burg, but all the yuppies have caught on to the fact that it's super-cool and the property values are now OUTRAGEOUS.  Cry **insert long, LONG rant about how the HELL you could charge $500K for less than 1000 square feet**  Ahem...  best of luck to you.   If you're brave, there are some fantastic deals right next to the projects.  Sad
