841  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:Mug rack turned jewelry holder on: February 21, 2004 06:39:00 PM
this reminds me of the potrack i have in my kitchen out of a coatrack the same style as your mug rack.  i screwed cuphooks on all the ends of the arms and it's great vertical storage for pots and pans and lids to free up cupboard space and keep everything right at hand.  it's my favorite use of useless stuff i've ever made.  Smiley

i love this lamp--very cool.  it reminds me of the film strip one i just did and i thought i might pass along the idea of lining the slides with white paper...that way you can see the pictures on the slides a little better without blinding yourself...of course, with the cool joints/rings/whatever on yours, the white might look clunky...
anyway, now i'm just rambling!  just wanted to say--cool project!

tulle is absolutely the best and most fun stuff ever, and it's pretty cheap, to boot...but i have a real soft spot for using cheesecloth for this sort of thing, too.   it's more temporary, i guess, as it's a loose weave, but it just has a great feel, it's cotton and so lends itself brilliantly to a little tie-dye action. i bowered my bed when i was in high school...

a non-decoupage decoupage job, like putting the items under some clear contac paper might be a start...but i wouldn't do anything you really really like on something that might die on you.

my first duct tape project today:

just fun, nothing fancy...good for keeping dvds in order.  (second picture is the inside...)

CircusManager220, you're sweet, but i think it's more tenacity than talent for this one...and my brilliant eye, of course.  Wink
craftsurge, check your local schools and libraries...they just might have some old strips they're going to throw out!
J/A/S/O/N, that story just made my day.

i'm in love with my lampshade (even though it's a fairly ugly lamp), but it was a pain in the ass because i started in on it before i had fully thought it out.  i should have bought a plain tube frame and just applied the filmstrips to it, but i instead sewed all the filmstrips together and then realized that they wouldn't happily make a cone shape, so them i had to figure out how to make the shade from scratch, more or less.  
old educational filmstrips are so cool.  i've also made slides out of them and done a ton of bitchin' polaroid slide transfers with them, including an entire series devoted to carl sagan's cosmos on filmstrip.  Smiley
848  COOKING / Dessert / Re:Altoids recipes? on: February 21, 2004 01:11:00 PM
my main beef with altoids--forgive me, i pun--is that they are made with gelatin and so not for the vegetarians.  damn it, i want tons o' tins, too!  i have to satisfy myself with "sourz" tins and they are not nearly so snappy...

just thought i would share--back from my local "big lots" and they have photo canvas for printers for $3 for a pack of five sheets of canvas.  a pretty good buy!  also lots of colored duct tape.
if you happen to live near a store and that interests you, i would hate to have anyone miss out.  of course, i can only say for sure that the mission street big lots in san francisco has this stuff, but i think it's a chain store that tends to have similar merchandise in all their locations.

i'd say, for cheapness and fun--though neither makes a lot of noise or involves smashing things up--you can't go wrong with something felty and your ever-popular duct tape wallet, comic book wallet, all that sort of thing.
making cute little felt things is great--nothing ravels, you can sew or glue, and putting little google eyes on felt makes everyone feel like a kid again.
