41  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / "brace care kit" swap? on: October 09, 2005 07:21:57 AM
I got braces on friday and I HATE THEM.

However, I am in need of both moral support, and a toothbrush cozy.

Anyone feel like doing a "brace care kit" swap? An example of an item would to make a little pouch (to keep all the toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash etc in), toothbrush cozies, brace-friendly recipes, stenciled shirts/notebooks with phrases on, things to cheer you up, lipbalm....maybe even that felt toothbrush which I know exists on Craftster, just can't find the link.

OK. Rave over. Anyone interested? *YOU* don't have to have braces, you could me giving the stuff you recieve to your daughter or sister or someone.

Forgot to mention: am pretty busy, probably wouldn't happen till November, but please let me know!

She puts all you jewelry people to shame!

Mimi is three and has just finished making me a kick-ass bracelet. The bottom pic is One She Made Earlier.

Yay for buttons! My grandma gave me these, they're not all the same but look so in the photos. They go fabulously with the button earring studs my friend gave me for my birthday! (Not made, the earrings were bought.)

Do you think I could be a hand model?
45  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The Arts - watercolour painting (my first!) on: September 28, 2005 10:33:27 AM
I did this around last Spring, in art lessons at school. It is the first proper painting I have done, and so was a huge learning process for me. (Yep - I now know all the effort which goes into a piece, and that no artist would just sit and paint what is in their mind on a whim....well, not many.)

Our theme was "Alter Ego", and we started with source pages, research - the norm. Here's my finished piece, "The Arts".

With flash:

46  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / glass painting board? on: September 24, 2005 11:52:02 AM
I don't know how many people out there do glass painting, but I do, and it's spiffy  Grin Thing is, I never know where to post the projects. I think a glass painting board would be great, and would introduce a lot of people to this fab technique.

e.g. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49439.0
When I posted this, a couple of people mentioned never having seen painted glass items.

Does anyone else think this is a possible idea?
47  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Wavy gravy! yay! on: September 24, 2005 07:57:45 AM
i finished this last night whilst watching "my best friend's wedding". (Just don't bother. I only watched b/c I wanted to knit.) Need to weave the ends in still, though. Meh.

YAY!!! It's in the famously discontinued (Why? Why'd you do it, Rowan, just why? Rowan Chunky Cotton Chenille, which I double-stranded. I made it 2 stitched wider that the pattern, and am v. pleased with my first modification (LOL). I also wrote the pattern out properly, so it was far easier to follow.

I love this, it's so chunky and snuggly and mmmmmm, but it's a present, part of the Xmas loot. Should I give this to my aunt's BF or would-be godfather Alun? Would this be more suitable for a straight or gay man? What do you think? I don't know if I have enough yarn left to make a ribbed scarf for the one who won't get it. Hmm.
48  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / I'm a fairytale balloon lady!! on: September 18, 2005 05:49:52 AM

A friend of my mum's has recently gone on a balloon course, as well as a face painting one. So now I, too, can blow up helium balloons and paint fantasy faces!
49  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / UK-available SKULLY yarn subs? on: September 14, 2005 12:42:31 PM
I love the Skully sweater.

It was the first thing I noticed when I got SnB out of the library.

I haven't made a sweater yet, but am planning first on doing a simple knit in the round raglan; then I want to do a skully mod and make it less huuge.

Thing is, I live in England and really don't think I can get the reccomended yarn here. Can anyone reccomend a good substitute which is easily available here? Preferbably not too dear.

John Lewis is accesseble to me, so brands I CAN get hold of are: rowan (LOTS), Debbie Blis, Jaegar (some), sirdar. Basically, brand names.

Thanks in advance!!!

50  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RRAWR, TIGER! - First duct tape operation a success! on: August 28, 2005 01:12:33 PM
Yay! Today, after a trip to Homebase (the only shop that I have found which does fun duct tape colours - i.e. grey, black and **ORANGE**) I came back with these:

A while later, I had.....THIS!

(Yes, I know: messy room, skirt clashes. So what?)
On the door (forgot to rotate pic)

The inside. There's a pocket, shown by the measuring tape and highlighter.

I showed it to my family, and after my grandma went "wow! Well done!" and my went "Oh you're mad: another one of those craftster internet things," they were larfing because they fully expect the bag to fall apart.

QUESTION: How does duct tape hold up in hot weather?Huh? Does it melt??

Also, may make a matching pencilcase if I can figure out how.
