1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: make my own letters? on: November 09, 2008 06:57:44 PM
You could use foam core board. I want to say it's about $3 for a 2' x 3' piece about 1/4" thick. It's usually with the poster-board in the craft store.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Child-Proofing The Bathtub Craftster Style on: October 01, 2008 06:44:13 PM
So my dilemma:

My 11 mo. old son has discovered the faucet on the tub. I'm scared to death he is going to accidentally turn the hot water on himself. I have one of those single knob faucets (turn one way to get hot, the other to get cold).

The only solution I can come up with is cut up one of those non-slip bath mats to fit over the knob/faucet and somehow attach suction cups to the corners so it will stay. The only requisition I have is that is that I don't want it to be more enticing than it already is, so I'm looking for low key.

General Idea: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2938036

Can anyone out there can think of something else or improve on my idea?? A way to ensure the suction cups wouldn't be pulled off by my baby muscle man??


3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Pizza dipped in WHAT? on: October 01, 2008 01:23:17 PM
I'm a fan of any type dressing we have in the house. Italian, ranch, honey mustard... The first time I had pizza w/ my step-dad he did something I had never seen before nor have I seen it since. He dipped his pizza in regular mustard! I still can't wrap my head around that one.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Jewelry + Crafts? on: January 29, 2008 04:43:13 PM
I specifically picked my rings out so that they wouldn't catch on things. I did the "hair test" as I called it. Put the ring on my finger and ran it through my hair to see if it would catch.  Wink

I keep mine on even when I'm doing something messy, unless it involves a lot of glue, because I can take them in whenever I feel like it to get them cleaned for free. The woman at the jewelry store knows me by name. One time I brought my rings in and there was bright orange paint in all the crevices. We actually started talking about crafting and it turns out she loves to knit.

So in short, for the most part I wear my rings while crafting.

We've been eating out/ take out every night for weeks now. Tonight we tried one of those Bertolli Mediterranean Frozen Meal things. It wasn't half bad. The best part was the enormous, ankles the size of grapefruits, due in 2 days pregnant lady didn't have to be on her feet for more than 10 minutes.  Grin
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Sailor Sam and Friends 3-Pocket shoulder bag on: October 14, 2007 07:26:44 AM
I love it! Those front pockets are perfect! Would you mind doing a mini tutorial for the pockets?  Grin

I agree w/ byonic_girl about the inspiration bag. I honestly don't know why the colored pleather/vinyl is supposed to be "in" this season. Sometimes those fashion designers who come up w/ some of this stuff make no sense to me...
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Non-Static Easy Wash Yarn on: October 04, 2007 02:42:43 PM
Thank you for the suggestion and info on the static and felting. Time to go yarn shopping for the first time.  Grin
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Non-Static Easy Wash Yarn on: October 04, 2007 08:48:37 AM
I don't knit/crochet and know nothing about yarn. Anyway, my mom offered to knit me a scarf and asked me what kind of yarn I wanted. Like the title says I want something that isn't going to create a lot of static (as most of my scarves do), and something that is easy to clean as I'm about to give birth in just a few weeks so it will inevitable get spit-up on it. Any suggestions? Also do certain stitches hold up better to being washed than others? Thanks!
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Poly clay pond decorations -- safe? on: October 04, 2007 08:37:23 AM
There have been a couple discussions about polymer inside aquariums. The consensus seems to be, "Polymer clay is non-toxic, but we don't know for sure, so better safe than sorry." You can read about what could happen to polymer clay that has been under water here (http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/outdoor_snowglobes_fountains.htm) under "Water Contact Problems". Hope that helps.
