1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: My First Gingerbread House on: December 18, 2005 07:24:46 PM
I think it came out great, i too decided to try and make a gingerbread house but it came out more like a gingerbread adobe when the roof caved in and flattened out!  I think you did a very good job.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: image transfer to tile on: December 18, 2005 07:20:06 PM
I am trying to do this for my mom (with pics of her thru the years, she is turning 50!).  You make the collage, then color photo copy it onto photo transfer paper, then you put the cut out image in hot water and wait for it to uncurl (the link has all the explanations!)

I hope everything went well, i know this was a while ago!

the green mask is actually Pantalone. Even though his character is supposed to be red i was trying to put aross the feeling of a miser or an old sickly type character, i felt red would be too harsh.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: June 04, 2005 11:57:16 AM
But I shouldn't be too surprised, as this all comes from a person who falls UP the stairs...

I broke my foot falling UP the stairs!!! The doctors and nurses couldn't stop laughing as i was in horrible pain!!!  I am glad i am not the only one!

As for injuries, my happiest accident was a relief/painting i was working on for my boyfriends apartment.  i was cutting a stencil out of some thick cardboard with an exacto knife, needless to say i sliced all the way down my index finger (damn me for being left handed...) i started bleeding - but being the ever vigilant crafter i kept on (thinking it was a paper cut type, stingy, cut), no, it was a profusely bleeding cut that bled all over the relief...the happy accident is that the blood drops looked really cool and mixed with the plaster so i left it, and no one was the wiser to my morbid art piece!

i just happened upon this post...i really like your works! Plus, did you do them on cardboard, or some other textured material, because i think that is what makes the "ordinary" subject look really different and beautiful.  I really like them...you are not wasting time, in fact you are making a very good use of your time.
6  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Re: Cool fabric stores in the Boston area?? on: May 18, 2005 09:57:23 AM
I just read about this in the newest Improper Bostonian:
Sewfisticated at Twin City Plaza
14 McGrath Hxy. in Somerville 617-625-7996 and also in
Lamberts Plaza 735 Morrissey Blvd. in Dorchester

They sell discounted designer fabrics. Some are as low as 1.99/yard.

That bag is really beautiful. Its really simple but has a great texture to it! Good Job.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Make a lamp out of masks on: May 16, 2005 05:34:19 PM
that lamp is very cool.  I love that it looks so modern and clean.  plus its cheap (those masks you can get at a paint store in bulk!)  This is a great idea to give a room some pizzazz w/out a lot of cash.

Good Job  Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Masks on: May 16, 2005 09:04:15 AM
Hey Everyone,

This past semester i made these masks for a class.  They were my first attempt and i found that i LOVE making masks!  These aren't great but they are good start i think.  I just wanted some feedback from people other than my professor (i got an A but was it for effort? or actual talent?, who knows!?)

Thanks for the feedback!

[By the way, this is my first post with pictures! Yay!]
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Diabetic Supplies on: May 15, 2005 04:16:03 PM
i am not quite sure what they look like but if they are like film canisters - that makes me think of machine guns (wierd i know) maybe you could make a machine gun-like clip and use it to make a really cool wall art, you could create the rest of the Barrell (is that the right term) by painting some paper tube roles or other cylinderical object?

Or you could use them to hold change.  That's where i used to keep my milk money.

Sorry these are so bad - but sometimes bad ideas help to spawn some good ones, so you should have some GREAT ideas after reading this...or just feel like you wasted time (sorry if thats the case. Undecided)
