1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another Earring Swap on: August 07, 2009 07:00:17 PM
I'm in an earring-making craze lately and I came on to check for an earring-only swap; there's one that just started but of course the sign-up is over. I don't think I'm eligible to run one but I'd love to join one if someone else set it up. {/lazy}

Who else would be up for it?
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Anatomy Extra Credit - Am I in over my head? on: April 24, 2007 06:06:46 PM
I am in need of extra credit in my anatomy class as I kind of skipped a major project eariler and the year and... well, let's just say it turned into nine grades of ZERO. Yikes.

I have to make a model. I have to make the brain or the ear. The brain seems simpler EXCEPT for the fact that she wants all the lobes to be able to be taken apart! The ear, then, seems easier since it does not have to come apart.

It will need to be on a stand so it will stand upright.

I don't even know where to begin, really. I've worked with clay before, but I've only done small things like fruit. I have about three and a half pounds of Sculpey (white) and the appropriate paints.

Which of these would be easier? Any ideas on how to keep the removable parts together?
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Pencils, what? I don't know. on: December 12, 2005 11:24:14 AM
Hmm. I think this is the right place.

My 13-year-old brother likes to draw but he just uses notebook paper and regular pencils. I want to buy him some things like a sketchbook and pencils and whatnot (for Christmas), but I don't know what pencils to buy. Aren't there... different kinds and whatnot?

Any help would be appreciated. And any more ideas in that area, all I can think of is paper and pencils. Blar.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Agh, needles. on: October 16, 2005 07:20:48 AM
I stepped on a sewing needle yesterday. It was sticking straight up from the carpet and it actually stuck in my heel.

Man. It's not pleasant.

Am I supposed to put anything on it? I never thought about that. Huh.

Okay. Whining over.
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Ahh! Scary. In multiple ways. Advice? on: October 08, 2005 09:39:51 PM
So... I'm the typical stupid teenager, you see, planning all my "when I turn 18" things.

I really, really, *really* want my tongue pierced. However! I am a big wimpy pansy girl. I just want to know, how much DOES it hurt, and is it really normal for it to swell?

And, if you've done it... how long have you kept it in? Or did you remove it for some reason?

Aaaand how much did it cost?

Roar! You thar! Share your knowledge.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting = friends. on: September 08, 2005 04:36:36 PM
I made a pretty pink hat and took it to school. Twelve hundred million people drooled over it; I ended up giving it to a boy that begged me to let him wear it for the class period.

Therefore, crocheting = hats = people that want to have your babies.

And I set up a deal that if anyone at school wants me to crochet or knit him or her a non-birthday somesuch (like a scarf or hat), I will do it free of charge so long as they provide the yarn and I get to keep the excess.

I LOVE this setup. Love it. They get the colours they want and I get scrap yarn. I suggest it to all.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Newbie knitter... "st st"? And other burning questions. on: September 08, 2005 04:14:24 PM
I've only been knitting for a very short time. My first "real" project is a scarf.

"Using the red/burgundy colour, cast on 40sts and knit in the round for 3 inches (work st st if you are knitting your scarf flat)

Tip: If you use a provisional cast on you can graft the end closed for a neater finish. "

Question 1: Work st st?
Question 2: Knitting your scarf FLAT? What else would I be doing?
Question 3: What's a provisional cast?
Question 4: "Graft the end closed" means...?

Thanks in advance! Cheesy

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting with your tongue stuck out? on: September 06, 2005 05:46:47 PM
Does anyone else crochet or knit with your tongue stuck out? I always seem to do it when I get really into whatever I'm making. Then I notice and feel really stupid.

Useless post. Hum. ^_^
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Whaa?? Crocheting is easier. >=( on: September 06, 2005 05:32:32 PM

"Step 6: Return right fingers to right needle, and draw yarn through stitch with point of right needle."

Okay, yarn is SO not drawing through stitch. I guess I'm used to crocheting... with a HOOK... to draw yarn... through...

I can't download videos; I tried knittinghelp.com and it always gets stuck halfway through. And I'm tired of putting off learning to knit! I wanna learn NOW! >=(

Okay, so I just sort of helped it through the stitch and NOW IT'S ONE BIG JUMBLED MESS. ROAR.

Is there a better non-book (I can't buy or check out books because they don't allow me to leave but for school) or non-video website from which to learn?

Help is GREATLY appreciated, I know you get tons of posts saying "TEACH ME TO KNIT PLZ LOL" and... I'm trying not to do that to you, really.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I know I should know this, but...?? on: September 05, 2005 11:08:13 AM
Flour lightly. How exactly...? It says to use a cooking spray and then flour lightly, but it's getting sort of clumpy and anyway, how do you flour the sides? GOD this is a dumb question.

In the past I've just... sort of... ignored that.

I just don't want to screw this up.  >.<
