1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: HELP! new to v-day new boy on: January 31, 2005 07:06:23 PM
i used to date a boy who collected old atari games. there was one he couldn't find and i ordered it from radio shack (i have no idea if you can still do this). he LOVED it.

us girls assume romantic is good, but boys aren't like that. i've tried slightly romantic stuff and gotten nowhere. if you remember something he really likes try that. food, hobbies, sports, whatever. that stuff has always gone over the best in my experiences.

and food is good. boys like food.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making Your Own Corset? on: January 16, 2005 06:17:41 PM
i can't remember any specific sites off-hand, but the last time i had to make a corset i always found great links through www.costumes.org that's where all us costuming kids find our stuff. shhhh....there should be a link for corsetry that will give you so many links your head will explode! good luck!

oh! and some should have info on measuring. every company does them differently, so find a method you like and stick with it

ya spray paint eats foam. i found that out the hard way doing a scene design project. you might be able to coat the foam in something else first, then spray paint it.

haha i actually work in the record store. i'm always showing stuff to the girls in the bead store, they're the only ones who don't think i'm crazy for making all this stuff! but they tend to make more jewelry stuff, and there's a couple of fashion design students too.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: small punching bag on: January 04, 2005 05:32:37 PM
did you use super-strong thread, like silamide or hymark, or did you just use standard all-purpose thread? i was curious if stuffing the bag and then punching it repeatedly would wear through the thread quickly.

oh and...nice photo
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Ice Candles on: June 30, 2004 07:36:12 PM
i love making ice candles. i save all the left over wax from leftover candles in a little bag and then melt them down with crayons and parafin. i try to make them as ugly 70's as possible--lots of maroon, avocado green, orange, brown.  i usually layer the scents on top of each other, so as it burns you get one after another. i've put pine on top of honeysuckle on top of apple. it actually all works out. a lot of the water you can pour out when the candle dries, but as it starts to burn down i periodically pour out more. as it burns new holes the ice created pop up, so sometimes it will just start pouring water out the sides. oh i recommend waxed wicks if you can find them. they tend to burn better and more evenly than the non-waxed ones.
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases on: May 31, 2004 09:09:15 PM
i'm pretty sure you can. i remember trying to break them and they bend a lot before they'll snap. i guess you could try tin snips or wire cutters or something. they'd probably trash your scissors long before they cut anything. i would recommend wearing some eye protection in case of flying cd-type debris.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: waterproofing for kitchen counter on: May 25, 2004 02:35:56 PM
i've also seen people put a clear piece of...acrylic? plexi-glass?...on top of kitchen tables. they'll have a tiled table and then put a sheet on top to protect it. i'm not positive how heat resistant it is, but if it is that might work on top of your stuff.

share when you're done! i'm now considering the same type of thing!  Smiley
