1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / art pad storage! on: January 05, 2013 03:16:44 PM
So i have a ton of artist pads of all different types, and the space I'm in does not have a closet (boo), what I'm wondering is how do you store your art pads?

I'm working on reorganizing my space and making more room for things, and i need a better storage solution than what i've been working with.

any ideas?
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Baked Yeast Donuts on: March 28, 2009 10:21:42 AM
I love yeast donuts, more than the cake style. But I hate that they seem so fattening.

So I found a recipe for baked donuts! They turned out good but I think I cooked them for just a moment too long. Great tasting though!

It really made a huge amount of them, and I have to say I enjoyed the little donut holes better than the big ones. I like bite sized things!

Does anyone have any experience with added wheat gluten? The original recipe for the donuts had the vital wheat gluten as an ingredient but I've never used it and didn't have any on hand so I left it out.

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Light paint, Dark shirt, Lots of bleed! on: February 08, 2009 04:17:00 PM
So I made a shirt for DH's birthday https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291384.0 and on the red Goomba shirt, I had a LOT of bleed problems. He looks a little hairy up close.

How do you keep your light colored paints from bleeding onto your dark shirts??

Materials: freezer paper stencil, foam brush for dabbing, and white fabric paint (not heat set variety)

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Simple Block Quilt on: February 03, 2009 06:35:27 AM
I made a quilt for a friend of mine recently, she was feeling a little blue and out of sorts. So being genius me, I decided she really needed to feel blue but in a good way. So her all blue quilt was born.

I think its funny that my husband calls my pinning of quilts as ADD, though I really think he means OCD.

I used cotton batting for the first time, and didn't preshrink it, so the quilt has that nice "old" feeling and look to it. Very broken in and comfy feeling.

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Heavy Metal and Geekyness on: December 14, 2007 08:53:00 PM
My husband is a metalhead geek. So for him he gets two fun shirts. He really is low on shirts and we're low on money, so buying generic shirts and then decorating them is really a help!

Too Much Metal For One Hand!


Geeky "I know your password"

he already has a shirt that says "i read your email" that freaks people out, I thought the password one would go great with it.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Achmed The Dead Terrorist! on: December 14, 2007 08:35:42 PM
I love Achmed the dead terrorist! He makes my day. Look him up on Youtube if you don't know who I'm talking about. This is a gift for my husband, but I was so excited that I gave it to him early.

it was the first stencil i've ever done, and it turned out relatively well, but there was some crazy bleeding and also I put the picture down too far on the shirt so its a little odd placement. I'm getting better though!

more on it here...
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / sewing machine issue on: September 29, 2007 10:00:14 PM
So I have an issue with my sewing machine. I just got one from GoodWill and it works really well, except when I go in reverse to secure stitches, then it bunches and gathers. I have checked and rechecked the manual, tensions, all that stuff but still cant figure it out. any ideas?
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Blue leafy baby quilt on: September 28, 2007 08:49:18 AM
I love this quilt. I'm trying to use some extra fabric I have around (since I have WAAYYYY too much) The backing is a nice soft pale blue. I think the next one I make (since I have enough for another) is going to be flannel backed.
