11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Art from my colleges art show! on: May 15, 2005 03:19:10 PM
i feel the same way! i have a love for all sorts of crafty and artsy stuff...and alas they live segregated!

I think you did a really good job of melding your two passions together.  I would hang it on my wall!
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Hanging a picture galley style? on: May 14, 2005 02:05:43 PM
Hi Everyone,

I have a thin hallway that is too small for any kind of furniture but i don't want it to be boring! 

I had a graphic designer friend of mine make me some pics, that i since had framed.

I would like to hang them in the hallway so that they tilt down toward you (like some paintings in the museum...).

I was just curious if anyone had any tips on how to do this.  I think if you put a hook in the ceiling and use fishing line to connect to the painting maybe that will work?

If someone knows a better/the right way to do this it would be much appreciated. 

Thanks! (once its done I'll post pictures!)

those look really good. If those are your first attempt that gives me a little bit of confidence to attempt a stenciled shirt or two (that's assuming that i have some talent in the stencil department. We'll see).

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you organize? on: May 14, 2005 10:53:14 AM
Well, i don't knit...however when i make any kind of project i like to store them in clear plastic "shoe boxes".  I got them at Bed Bath and Beyond in a package 5 for a couple of dollars.  The good thing about them is that at the end of the college school year (and the beginning) they all go on sale! I like them because you can see right away whats in them, plus there is a little place to label them on the box.  Also a plus they are waterproof and will keep them safe.  

I bet with knitting/sewing projects clear storage bins would be great.  If they are smaller projects you could use those stupid sock dividers (for really anal people's drawers) to organize 'like' projects or colors.

Also you could try storing them in those re-usable ziplock Tupperware containers. They have them in a ton of sizes and you can get them at the supermarket.

At Barnes and Noble you can buy a book stand for like $5.  It is an ingenious idea, i will post a  pic soon

also, spray them with hairspray (the cheap kind, extra sticky).  It will help keep them stiff, and not crumble to little bits.

well, i use a toaster oven too, and i have found that if you have a semi-tall peice make sure you watch him/her because i've had a couple of smoking and then on fire little heads.  No Fun.  Definitly PreHeat. Also, i have a special pan that goes in, but if you put some tinfoil underneath them it keeps them from sticking or making a mess on the pan (just be careful b/c it could cause it to overheat as well). 

Honestly i have found that it is best to keep an eye out, it takes some time to figure out your perfect times/heats for your specific toaster.

Did that help at all?  Huh Sorry if it didn't.
