281  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Keyboard Destroyed Beyond Repair on: April 29, 2005 05:52:18 PM
Today my dad was being abusive and violent and broke my computer keyboard by hitting the table with it. Its totally busted in half, but I have most of the keys intact albeit not attached. I have a new keyboard now, so and ideas on what to do with the old keys? I was thinking of doing bracelets with those as beads but there's a weird thing in the middle of them so it'd be difficult to drill holes all the way through.
282  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Question about Bazaars and Craft Fairs on: April 28, 2005 12:35:04 PM
Sorry if I missed an answer to this when I was searching, but I had a question.
Do you have to have a business permit or income tax forms or any of that to sell crafts at a craft fair or a bazaar? A teacher of mine told me that normally at the school bazaar you don't have to, but I wondered if this was true or if it applied to all bazaars. Please let me know, I'd like to participate in one.  Huh

Use them to hold jewerly?
Not to say that guys don't wear jewelry, but most of mine is macrame and won't fit  Wink
I do like the swap/gallery of the matchboxes and think I might try just decorating some in a random fashion.

Sometimes I like to binge on the small alien toy things that come in those 25 cent machines at the grocery store. I have about 20-30 of the little plastic capsules they come in... any ideas? I tried sprouting seeds in a couple but didn't get it to work.
285  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Graffiti-ish Painted Plastic Cabinet on: April 25, 2005 07:22:16 PM
I had a gift card for Walmart and needed more storage for my room, so I got one of those great 3-drawered wheelie carts that are usually see through and plastic and boring. So when I got home, I taped up areas for line designs like a certain graffiti artist (ElTono) does with his artwirk, and spraypainted! Ok, well, it wasn't that simple. I suggest getting really good tape to tape off the lines, because my masking tape didn't work well, and I spent an hour with some paint thinner and a tiny paintbrush. Not cool. Perhaps a roller next time? Well, done with the rambling, here's the pics:

Sorry about the bad photo quality, and I'd show the other sides if it wasn't for all of the stuff weighing it down (wheels get stuck easily in carpet). Let me know what you think! Maybe when I go to college I'll end up makign a few more of these...

I read a recipe somewhere that you can make beads out of a water/salt/starch mixture, but it ended up turning into playdough. I tried making a few beads and we'll see in the morning how they fared.

Hello everyone, this is my first post here  Smiley

To show you today, I have one of my many passions which is macrame. I love yarn and macrame and beads and all of that good stuff, and these are a set I made for myself at school when I was bored.

Please let me know what you think. I'd be happy to post more when I make it. I'm trying out a few tutorials on making beads, but I'm afraid that's I've botched decoupage beads and salt/starch beads all in the same day  Embarrassed
