never use the beater-brush attachment of electric vacuums. It's not feasible to wash larger rugs, especially the 2m x 2m griffin, as these become too heavy to move when waterlogged. A wet/dry vacuum cleaner (such as a VAX) spruced them up a bit. Admittedly this is a problem of many making as like making really big rugs that can take years to complete.

Sharpies would fit, but not pencils.

You can use a transfer pen (like this http://www.amazon.com/Chartpak-Ad-Markers-Colorless-Blender/dp/B0026HC7GU) with a photocopy or laserjet print to get the same effect.

Same technique as your link, but instead of brushing water on, you use the transfer pen.

have you tried the method of transfer photo copies of b&w pictures to tile?

Krylon has an indoor/outdoor paint.  I have used it for repainting patio furniture. It has held up really well.  I found a link on amazon so you can see the can.  You can also buy it from Lowes or Home Depot, Walmart may even carry it, but not sure about that one.


did you like it's color? color should be great in painting because it gives the real taste

I have two metal racks in my craft room, and couldn't live without them.  I also have something I store small stuff in.  Here are some links to show you what I'm talking about. 



I keep fabric in stackable storage bins under my work table, which is a small dining table that I got at a second hand store.

Will pencils fit inside? my friend was able to fit pens in at an angle but not pencils, he said highlighters also fit.

Here's a different version of that same story! \O/ It was always one of my favorites as a child but I don't remember where I heard/saw it. No one seems to know it when I try to explain.

It's called the Seven Swan Brothers. An evil witch cursed seven brothers to become swans with only one day a year to become human. Their little sister went to the Lady of the Forest and asked how she could break the curse and the Lady told her that she must find the nettle plants that grow along the river banks. She would have to cut them, harvest them, soak them, beat them, spin them and finally weave them all by herself into shirts for each of her Seven Brothers before the curse was broken. And she may not speak a word while she worked. She couldn't cry out in pain or hum under he breath. Nothing. Not until the last shirt is over the last head of her last brother would she be able to speak and the curse would be broken. In one version, she didn't finish one sleeve but was in portal peril so as the last shirt went over the head of her brother, she cried out and for the rest of his life he remained human with one swan's wing for an arm.

Juliet Marillier wrote a trilogy based on this story and it is FABULOUS. It's called the Seven Waters Trilogy. It's SO WORTH the read!


i think this is must read list for lovers of fantasy
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you organize your craft supplies??? on: May 05, 2017 01:07:36 AM
I use a scrapbook paper cart with 10 bins.  The drawers are shallow.  I sort by size.  some drawers only have 12"x12" paper.  Some drawers only have 8"x11" paper, some drawers only hold my 6"x6" paper pads and then at least one drawer is odd sizes and bits.  It's not perfect but the best I've come up with.  The carts are kind of flimsy so I don't roll it around, it stays put in its corner and I'll pull out a drawer or 2 and look through them when I need paper.


would this be good for lego storage or is it too fragile for children?

It's The Paper Pieced Home by Penny Layman. I guess it's all kinds of retro house stuff, not just appliances which I was thinking for some reason lol! The couch and tv on the front cover are really cute, and I love the viewmaster!


Penny Layman is a genius when it comes to paper piecing patterns
