1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Gender Neutral Baby Quilt on: August 22, 2008 06:19:04 PM
Beautiful quilt! I really love how the design is simple and geometric but still very pretty and interesting to look at. I've been trying to start a baby quilt, but haven't found a design I really liked until I saw this one. Do you have the approximate dimensions? (I'm assuming it's already been given to those lucky parents!) Grin
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to laminate/seal a paper mosaic? on: August 09, 2007 11:59:16 PM
Thank you both! Now I can push on with my project without fear that all my hard work would result in a constantly degenerating, uh, art-ish thing. I thought of Kinko's at first but I didn't realize they could do big pieces besides little booklets and stuff like that. I'll give them a call straightaway. Grin
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How to laminate/seal a paper mosaic? on: August 08, 2007 11:12:08 PM
How would one laminate a large (approx. 24 x 32 inch) poster? I want to create some wall art for my boring room and was inspired by a bunch of magazines, which I proceeded to chop up. My plan was to replicate/interpret a cool photograph into a large poster using blocks of colors cut from said magazines which would then be glued onto butcher paper.

But I want the finished poster to be durable and able to be rolled up/stored without having to worry about all the little magazine bits falling off, and I don't think a sealer like Modge Podge would be flexible enough. I remember in elementary school they seemed to have a way of laminating everything between two sheets of plastic... Any ideas, anyone? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Wink

Wow!! Awesome! They both look really great. I wish 3rd Rock was still on; now that was some quality television...
5  ASIA / Japan / Re: Japan traveling questions on: June 18, 2007 10:52:53 PM
If you can get it in time, I would reccomend the Japanese Phrase Book and Dictionary by Berlitz. (ISBN 2-8315-6267-8) I speak some Japanese, but I borrowed this book from a friend and found it very handy. It has useful phrases and sentences in English, romanized prononciations, and Japanese script which she could show to someone if there are still misunderstandings. It has little color coded edges of sections like food, transportation, health (very important to be able to communicate; I found that out the hard way!)

I wish your daughter all the best of luck! I'm sure it'll be an amazing trip!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: May the Triforce be with you.... on: June 17, 2007 09:14:58 PM
You could try duplicate stitching, which might be "cheating" if you really want to do the intarsia, but it would certainly be much simpler, because you would finish the sweater and come back to do the design afterwards.

See Knitty's explanation here:

Good luck! I'm sure your boyfriend will love it!

Neat idea! I love all of Thinkgeek's stuff. I'm sure your brother will love it.

copy right infringement

But can they really copyright a caffeine molecule? Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that that type of "design" is a standard molecular diagram used in chemistry textbooks, etc.

Hahaha! I really laughed out loud because it's so adorable! Cheesy I love how you cleverly incorporated the duck's mouth for the screen. Too cute. Great work!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Abandoned oak door to my new work desk!! on: May 25, 2007 06:16:57 PM
Wow wow!! That's so neat! I've always wanted to make a door desk, but, well, never had the door. What a great boyfriend to bring home neat finds for you! Cheesy I second punka's concern about the glass possibly breaking. Maybe you could get another sheet of stronger glass (large enough to cover the whole door) and then you could put photos or mementos or pretty paper between the door's glass panes and the larger glass sheet.

She's so cute! Cheesy The only thing I notice is on her tummy where some of the stuffing shows through, but I don't really know how you would prevent that. Otherwise, don't change a thing! She's simply fabulous. I love her headband!!
