1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Refinishing Wal-Mart furniture? on: June 06, 2008 07:38:00 AM
So here's the situation.

I have two dressers that are a similar style (that happen to not be my style at all). They kind of match, but look horrible with the rest of our things. I'd like to sand them down, prime them, paint them either the same color or similar colors, and get matching drawer pulls.

However nice that might sound... How do you go about this with crappy wal-mart funiture? It's particle board, but covered in... laminate? or a vinyl veneer? Something that looks like it's going to be nightmarish to refinish.

Any ideas?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lily's Rainbow on: March 25, 2007 11:54:09 AM
It took me several months, but I finally got this blanket done for my best friend's baby, born in December. It was a royal pain to work with (because of the yarn, not the pattern). It's two strands throughout of Lion Brand's Microspun, in Cherry Red, Mango, Buttercup, Lime, and I can't remember what the blue was called. Maybe true blue. Something like that.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Floor-space free Christmas Tree! Woo! (complete w/ photos) on: November 27, 2006 03:48:46 AM
As much as I would love to type out the full tutorial again, It's not even six AM yet. So here is my tree, and how to make it. It may or may not be finished yet... I've been basking in it's awesome-ness for a few days so I'm not sure.


4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / quilt/afghan hybrid... am I crazy? on: June 13, 2006 05:06:38 AM
So, here's the deal. My best friend is having a baby in December. So, since I'm off work for the summer, I started making the afghan now. It's just granny squares, so it's going to be kind of airy. What I was thinking about doing after the afghan itself is finished, somehow using pieces of salvaged baby blankets to kind of... quilt on one side?  Shocked

I've never seen it done before, but in my mind it's kind of cool.
Any suggestions, help, comments?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / V8 dress Ideas? on: July 12, 2005 03:32:33 PM
So, somewhere along the way, I inherited this cool dress:

But now I don't know what should happen to it. I thought about using some of it for some panels for some flares, or maybe a purse... but I'm stuck.

Any ideas?
6  COOKING / Dessert / Awesome Jello Cookies... My favorite recipe on: June 01, 2005 12:02:14 PM
So, I was helping my friend sort through her huge stacks of recipes, and found a recipe for jello cookies. You can do all kinds of cool decoration on them, too. They're awesome for holidays, since you can change the color of them.

Jello Cookies   
3 1/2 C. Flour   
1 pkg. jello powder (the bigger package)   
1 1/2 C. Butter   
1 C. Sugar   1 Egg   
1 tsp Vanilla   
1 tsp baking powder

Decorate with
Small box of contrasting color jello powder
Colored sugar                  

Mix flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add jello powder and mix well. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well. Gradually stir in dry ingredients. Roll into medium-sized balls and flatten a bit. Decorate with jello powder or sugar. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 8 minutes at 400 F

Oh yeah, these are great. You can make red and green ones for Christmas, or lighter colored ones for Easter. My St. Patrick's Day ones were by far the coolest, though.
