1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / NYTimes gives props to DIY on: July 03, 2006 01:42:52 PM
I don't know if this belongs here, but there's a brief article about DIY business in yesterday's NYTimes  Magazine.  Leah is quoted and craftster mentioned.  Huzzah.

Just got back.  The extent of my crafty ventures was going to the Cannes flea market.  (And wearing a $10 modified goodwill dress on the red carpet!)  At any rate Cannes and surrounding area was lovely- very posh though.  For those interested in local travel-- take the buz azur- travel about locally for only 1,30 per ride.  Grab food at local markets, boulangerie and the ubiquitous Monoprix and Casino chains and it won't kill you financially.  Grasse has a neat artists' square- complete w/local headquarters for the communist party.

Hello All,

I'm going to Cannes in less than a week.  Aside from non-stop cinema madness, I thought I might check out some local crafts/art/flea markets.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for checking!  I've heard that Jukis are great machines.  Anyone have any leads on solid used machines? Online or in CA?  I need a sturdy, but not ultra expensive machine.

Strangely, my old crapola kenmore could handle just about anything, but was bashed up in stage one of my move and then whacked around by burglars that broke into the house where it was being kept safe.  Guess it could handle 4 layers of fabric, but not being kicked.

I just moved to LA and I'm interested in buying an industrial machine.  Anyone have suggestions on brands or places to buy used industrial machines?

Here's the recipe from America's Test Kitchen.  My sister made it and really liked it.  This recipe contrains no pineapple.

2 1/2 C. unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb (6-7 medium)  carrots, peeled
1 1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 C safflower, canola, or vegetable oil

Bake in middle rack at 350 for 35-40 minutes until toothpick is clean.  Cool cake in pan on wire rack for 2 hours.  Remove cake from pan and frost.

8 oz cream cheese
5 TB unsalted butter
1 TB sour cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 C confectioner's sugar

The recipe is available at Americastestkitchen.com -- you have to register though.  I copied this froma a written version.

I love the portability/surprise  factor.  The cardstock figures are also great.  I don't know why, but it reminds me of a Mona Lisa box- art object (not the one with the mustache) that Marcel Duchamp did.

I might try the metal flashing idea.  My fridge smacks open against a wall- so there would be spices flying in no time at all.
Less cute, but equally space saving, would be to use magnets to stack cans vertically on a shelf.  My mom does this with metal containers stacked high- good if you've got like 40 spices/spice mixes and no space.  She stacks them 5 cans high on one of those step organizer thingies for her shelf.
