1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Re: I would like some advice on my charity project for the coming new-year. on: December 22, 2011 11:59:51 AM
World.Of.Hoard.Craft i think all those suggestions are great Cheesy
Maybe the Blog name could relate to the charity you'll be supporting?
Example...  you make items to auction for school supplies for poor inner city kids... Knits and School Kits. Or for Cancer research... A Stitch In Time (Saves Lives). A woman's charity? Knit One, Girls Too. Dog rescue? Afghans and Hounds.
I admit to knowing little about crocheting or knitting, so I'm trying LOL.
I really like the idea of tying a blog to a charitable auction. Good luck with the name.

afghans and hounds made me smile Cheesy yes i agree, i think this is a brill idea, and i hope you do it. think aswell, you could possibly end up with a massive following wanting to see what you do in the whole year, especially coz i would have thought with the sheer and utter amount of charity and crafting pages etc on there, ....  and good luck Smiley think its brill, and yes, post a link when you do it Smiley coz already on here you got 2 or 3 interested Smiley 
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: 16 yo son wants to be an artist on: December 22, 2011 11:17:09 AM
the person who put about deviant art is 100% correct, and i would look on facebook, there are tonnes of tattooists, tattoo art etc on pages on there. i have learnt loads about tattoo art off those types of pages. not because i want to become a tattoo artist in particular, but because i am just interested in tattoo art, graffiti art, and art of all kinds, and i get to interact with all sorts of people, including people like kat von d (tell him if he doesnt know already, that yes, she has her own page on fb, along with other famous and semi famous tattoo artists) etc on facebook. just thought this may be of help, coz (i am actually an artist in the traditional sense) in the same token that i have learnt loads about all these other types of art form, i would have thought that this would also be advantageous to him especially Smiley
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Remove Hoop When Not in Use? on: December 21, 2011 01:34:44 PM
hello Smiley im new here, so sorry if not meant to be replying yet :S but, i use these frames, and it might be easier investing in one of them (i have the large lap frame, because it makes 2 sizes of frame, smallish and large Wink  heres the link to the site: http://www.randrframes.co.uk/

they really are brill Smiley even if you go on holiday or whatever, they pack up small, and its really fast to put your stitchin in and out Smiley i do the big massive mirabilia designs and smaller ones like tatty teddy on it. it doesnt mark your stitching at all on the big designs, and it doesnt matter about keep taking it out of the frame, because its not a 'bind' putting it back on the frame Smiley i bought one 12 years ago, and got rid of the traditional frames coz its so much messing you see Smiley hope that helps Smiley

p.s. on the link,when you've clicked on it, on the right hand side it says 'store' and if you click on that, you get to see all the different sizes and styles etc Smiley
