1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Your favourite sandwiches on: February 10, 2008 05:40:03 AM
I personally prefer egg sandwiches, with gherkins, mayonnaise and ketchup. What is your favourite sandwich?
2  COOKING / Dessert / Re: ADULT: Filthy Penis Cake for my friend's Hens! on: January 25, 2008 09:53:07 AM
Haha, it's a deliciously kinky cake! I like the addition of chocolate sprinkles detail, it really does give it that extra oompf. The prickly texture freaks me out a little though. Tongue
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Re: Thistle Rubber Stamp on: January 23, 2008 08:34:57 PM
I think the roughness gives the thistle extra character - after all, a thistle is rough on its own. I think you did a great job on this.

Hey, great choice of fabrics! It looks quite retro, and very stylish. I suppose you could use for storing other things too, like jewellery.
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Re: Lack of criticism? on: January 18, 2008 04:44:30 AM
Yes, there is a very friendly attitude around here. Unfortunately, I do not know any other place that is so big and deals with crafts and provides criticism at the same time - and asking friends, well, they're usually too good to tell me what my shortcomings are. Thanks for your reply.
6  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Lack of criticism? on: January 17, 2008 10:09:51 AM
My general impression about Craftster is that it is very mellow, very gentle towards every craft posted here. Every creation gets positive replies - without saying, that really makes people happy. But wouldn't it be better to be more critical? Sometimes there are some genuinely sloppy flaws in a work. Sometimes you don't even like the creation - is it more polite to just keep your mouth shut (as it is, there could be a great bucket of love poured over making something, and you'd be sore over it getting sour grapes)?  Huh

Don't take me as speaking rudely now, but sometimes I feel like not enough effort is being put into works, and things submitted looking like they are just there to receive sugary compliments, hugging the egos of these craftsters.

What is your personal take on receiving criticism? Do you get defensive, do you take it with a pinch of salt or carefully listen to the advice? How would you react if someone simply didn't like your work?

Personally, I'm not a very careful craftster, a novice at that, so criticism would be greatly appreciated. Thought I'd get defensive sometimes, but I generally would listen to it.

A piata comes up to mind really quickly. If you're going for a real prank, put confetti out of recycled paper and plastic bags. If you want to put yummy treats - go ahead. It could be made out of thin papier-mache.

I made a notes scavenger hunt once - stuffed papers around the house, with clues as to where to find the next one written down on the previous one. Depending on what you write in them, it could be made easy or really difficult - and the possibilities for decorating the paper are endless!

It looks really jolly - what are the dimensions?

Hehe, I'm currently knitting a scarf with the same checkered pattern!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Confess! How many projects do you have unfinished?! on: December 26, 2007 01:35:55 PM
Well let's see...
1 - A scarf. I'm actually working on this one right now.
2 - Fingerless gloves. Just in theory so far.
3 - A jean-fabric doll. Again, only thought of in sketches and plans.
4 - Illustrations for the Old Testament. I've finished 5 or 6 drawings already.
5 - Set of little cushions. Hopefully to finish before February. Tongue

The problem is that I get different ideas while I'm working on a project - I leave it, start on the next one, grow out of it, forget what I was doing before.
