1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Wants My Dress on: May 26, 2011 10:25:12 AM
Honestly? I'd go with what Vecrutzi said, then double it.  That would be low-ball retail.  Don't feel bad about asking too much for it -- they have a lot of money, and they want to buy it to display it, and therefore make money off of it themselves!  I don't think starting negotiations at $6000 or $7000 is crazy.

Hi, Bransonites!  I'll be vacationing near Branson this summer (my parents' idea -- don't ask), and I'd love to hear about these thrift stores!  Actually, I'd love to hear about anything in or around Branson that isn't the standard tourist trap. Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Kombucha! on: May 30, 2009 08:49:26 AM
I make kombucha!  OK, I did until I got my morning sickness about 9 months ago.  I could NOT deal with the SCOBY at that point, so it kinda got neglected.  But now that my daughter is a month old and I have a bigger house, I plan on starting up again.  Apparently you can grow a new SCOBY from kombucha you already have.
I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it works.

The way I brewed mine when I was making it was:
1. Make ridiculously sweet organic black tea, and let sit until room temp.
2. Put in large glass jar (with a little of the last kombucha batch), put SCOBY on top, cover with a clean dish towel, and let sit on top of my fridge for 1 week.
3. Bottle it in mason jars, with some extra sugar and some concentrated fruit juice (cherry is my fave).  Let sit at room temp. 1 week.
4. Refrigerate and drink at your leisure!

This method makes it a little sweet/not too sour and super fizzy!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Question for moms who crafted during pregnancy on: March 17, 2009 02:07:12 PM
I'm due with my first in a little over a month, and I really haven't crafted that much!  I didn't start with a list -- I just figured that when the nesting urge hit me, it would hit in a major crafty way.  But since we don't have a nursery or even a crib to plan for, there's really not a whole lot for me to do!   Smiley 

I made some recycled cloth wipes and some recycled washable breast pads, and I'm planning on making my own diaper bag out of pair of old corduroy pants (because I couldn't find one already made that I liked!).  So really, I guess I'm just making the types of things that I KNOW I want, but that people are really unlikely to give me as gifts.  The majority of my nesting has come in the form of getting rid of all the EXTRA CRAP I HAVE CLUTTERING UP MY HOUSE.   Shocked  It has never bothered me more than it has while I've been pregnant!

Yep, I stenciled the shirt with freezer paper.  I don't know how I get them to come out so nice -- lots of little pieces and copious amounts of ironing?  Although I think I may have used screenprinting ink this time.  It's thicker than normal fabric paint or craft paint, so it's less likely to run. 

Thanks for all the compliments!   Grin

Hollah!!!   Cheesy

Sorry you're missing home, Mooma.  Norman is a pretty great place to live, isn't it?  (I just came here for school and got stranded while my DH finishes grad school).

OK, here's the stuff I sent to THE FLAKER.  Arrr.  I'm a little mad.  I'm pretty proud of this stuff.

Here's everything:

That's a Lone Gunmen stenciled t-shirt, a felt I Want to Believe poster (with glow-in-the-dark thread!), an origami Morley cigarette pack, some stickers, and a postcard with a photo of the Ovaltine cafe from "Jose Chung".  (Which ::plug for an awesome Etsy seller:: can be purchased here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_1&listing_id=9660884.)


So there ya go!  I might make myself another IWTB poster.  That thing was just cool.

Wow.  This is the clear winner in my book.  I mean, the irony just oozes from every aspect of this cozy.  And massive points for excellent fabric scavenging skills!

I love the glittery X on the black tee!  I will probably shamelessly steal this idea and make myself a shirt disturbingly similar to that one.   Cheesy

the scully skirt is awesome! I love the heart detail, it reminds me of the "paper hearts" episode...

LOL!  Yeah, that's actually my favorite episode ever, so even if it wasn't intentional, I'm totally calling it my Paper Hearts skirt if anyone asks.   Grin
