1  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??


2  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!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pin Cushion Sewing Machine Cuff on: September 04, 2007 11:41:45 AM
I was inspired by this thread. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194128.msg2046423#msg2046423

I added a little filling to the center to make it more cushion-y. I also made it adjustable so I can put it on the arm of my machine or the side.

Thanks for looking, and thanks again to Ronise for posting this.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Shower BBQ Invites Help on: August 13, 2007 09:15:44 AM
I've searched and searched and wracked my brain but I can't come up w/ anything. My mom wants to throw me a baby shower next month. It's going to be more of a party for family and friends (men included). She isn't doing a theme or games or anything like that. Anyway, she wants me to make the invites. Nothing too babyish though. I'm having a hard time finding that happy medium between regular 'ol party and over the top baby shower. I think I want to use green, black, and white, but I need to find some sort of graphic I can draw or print onto them to make them at least a little baby oriented. Also the wording is giving me trouble too. Mom doesn't want it to say it's a "couple's shower" as not everyone invited is a couple, but I'm not sure how else to be sure the men know they're invited.

So basically what I'm asking is:

What graphic can I draw/print that will make these for a baby shower w/o being too babyish?

How should I word it so that the men know they're invited, but aren't scared off because they think it's going to be too feminine?
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Splenda & Baking on: November 15, 2006 01:32:04 PM
My husband needs to cut back on his sugar, but I love to bake cookies. I know that they make Splenda for Baking, which I'm guessing is just part splenda and part sugar. Does anyone know a good ratio to try and combine sugar with regular Splenda, so I don't have to go buy the special stuff?  Huh Also the website says something about only needing half Splenda to replace sugar. Not half Splenda and half sugar, just half Splenda and no sugar. I'm so confused!! Huh
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Believe It! on: September 09, 2006 08:26:18 AM
here is one of the anniversary gifts i made for my husband. he's been obsessed w/ naruto (anime) lately, so i made him this floor pillow to sit on when he watches it so i can have the couch to lay down on and do more embroidery.  Wink it's a little puckered, but he likes it and i guess that's all that matters.

are you ready for your close up?

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / embroidering for the men in our lives on: August 30, 2006 08:19:51 AM
i just started embroidering, and i can finish something simple rather quickly. my 1st anniversary is coming up in a week and i wanted to embroider something for my husband. the problem i'm having is deciding what to make him. a t-shirt would be too big a project for me right now, and he obviously doesn't carry a purse. i'm asking for any suggestions as to what to embroider on for him. thanks in advance.

9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Craftalong Gallery on: February 27, 2006 03:51:55 AM
i searched to see if anyone had suggested this, and surprisingly came up empty handed... in the swap topic place there is a child board for a gallery. wouldn't it be easier to have a gallery for our craftalongs. there's one i'm interested in that has only been around a month and it's already 9 pages. you could have a gallery solely for pictures and people comments could be directed to the original thread. this really seems like someone would have thought of this and probably has and also figured out some down side that i can't see. so just giving my input, let me know what you think....
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / deperation and an empty cereal box on: February 02, 2006 09:37:59 PM
well back-story... i always have these ideas for projects and i end up writing them on whatever is handy, so then i have all these little scraps that get lost in the shuffle and never get a chance at life. well i had this great idea late last night and really didn't want to forget it. i've had journals before, but they were so pretty i didn't want to scribble in them and wanted them to be all organized and junk so no spur of the moment ideas went into them. so looking around for something i could just easily make that wouldn't be perfect but enough to keep my ideas together i saw an empty cereal box and thought hey i could cut that and paint it and make that the covers... so i cut it to roughly 5"x7" and cut some plain white paper to fit punched some holes and cut some strips of leftover fabric tied little knots and BAM it worked...

here's the completed book (if you could even call it that)

the inside cover and first page which i've already started to use... sorry could stop to take pictures w/ ideas floating around

well thats it just thought i'd share since i'm a praise whore and want positive attention.... c'mon give it to me... hehe i hate to be cocky, but it's fun

just finished and sent another one like this to sara_uk as a one-on-one swap https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83521.0
