1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / are you kidding me? on: April 12, 2007 09:58:15 AM
So on Tuesday my boyfriend arrives for our date and asks me if I want to check out the new hardware store. (He knows how to woo me with new tools). We skip about the aisles like kids in a candy shop and I happily bring my fabulous new dapping set up to the register. As I'm struggling to shove my unneccesarily huge wallet back into my overstuffed purse, my boyfriend grabs my new purchase so we can get out of the way.

The girl at the register looks right at him and says: "Enjoy your new tools. We all know they're for you anyway." We both looked at her like she was the craziest person alive. I turned to him and said, "Thank you big man for carrying my bag." He replied with "You're welcome, little lady. Can we go to Michaels now? I want to buy some supplies."

Girls like tools!

Girls also like guys who want to go to Michaels...
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / "gold", frankinscence, and myrrh... on: September 18, 2006 09:44:56 AM
so... my boyfriend's birthday is coming up and I need a little bit of input on his present. He collects different versions of the three wise men so I was going to buy him some frankinscence and myrrh resin from ebay (you can buy anything on ebay!) and then for the gold I was either thinking pyrite or bronze casting grains or maybe even cheap "gold" costume jewlery. I clearly can't afford real gold casting grains. Anyway, the problem that I have is I don't know what kind of containers to put them in. I have some metalsmithing skills but no access to a studio right now. What do you think I should do?
3  UNITED STATES / Rhode Island / setting up a studio in Providence? on: April 28, 2006 09:52:16 AM
hey, I was wondering if anyone has set up a studio in Providence or Pawtucket. I've been told about a few places to start looking but I'd appreciate any tip offs for location, affordable price, and maybe even studiomates....

thanks guys!
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Free Stuff!! on: February 05, 2006 08:59:05 PM
Hey everyone. I have finallly made the switch to a cd book and I have tons of empty jewel cases that are looking for a new home. I don't know if any of you clever craftsters can think up a project for them but if you can and are in New England they are all yours. I have a little over a hundred cases up for grabs. That's alot of colorful plastic. If  nobody wants them I can just recycle them. I thought I'd check here first though just in case someone wanted them.
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Portfolio advice???? on: January 06, 2006 09:33:03 AM
Hi. I'm putting together my textile design portfolio for interviewing and I'm having trouble coming up with a suitable format. I'm getting all of my CAD designs printed on 17x22 paper. I think people generally matt the printouts on illustration boards. The problem is I'm a 5 foot tall small fry and all that illustration board is going to weigh a ton!!! I would look totally rediculous trying to drag that to an interview. One of my professors suggested backing the printouts with clear contact paper and then trimming off the borders. I'm afraid that the designs won't look professional and resolved if I do that. Sooo.... I'm turning to you, fellow craftsters, to help me come up with a creative, lightweight, and professional portfolio solution. Bonus if it's inexpensive! P.S. Does anyone know the cheapest place to get 17x22 prints in the Providence area?
