1  Ohio / Ohio: Northwest / Re: Looking for crafty chics in Toledo on: December 10, 2007 01:02:24 PM
Welcome to Northwest Ohio and congrats! Grin I think that it is very important that some kind of crafty group take place around here. I am thinking about trying to organize something in early 2008. I am kinda all round generally crafty, unless it has to do with yarn. I have the ability to make a skein of yarn turn into a giant knot by just looking at it. Thrift shopping is one of my favorite hobbies. St. Vincent DePaul's downtown is AWESOME for furniture and things that you didn't know existed. Let's keep in touch and actually make stuff happen.

I am about 4 blocks outside of Toledo. And I absolutely think that we should have a crafty gathering of some sort. I shall attempt at organizing something after the holidays are past and things settle a bit in my life. We need something interesting to happen around here.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to paint a mirror tiki bar sign on: July 14, 2007 01:18:26 PM
Thanks for the help there. We have just bought andmoved into a new/old house and the tiki bar ( and it's mirror) are going to be relocated to under an awning on the back of the garage. Now I get to rethink the whole thing! (plus I get to start buying even more nifty tiki stuff!)

SweetMirandaJane- Thanks for the concern. But have no worry. Dolly is an old Maidenform Bra display and was built to be lit up for advertising purposes. She is well ventilated and seems to enjoy the heat. And theres no way that I could wear that size 30-B bikini top that she has on,so she gets her own wardrobe. Smiley But, it is all going to get torn apart and redone soon. My DH and I are looking to buy our own house and hopefully will get to introduce Dolly's " warm glow of electric sex" to a whole new unsuspecting neighborhood!

Just a thought. I saw a desktop size page- a day calendar at Barnes & Nobles that had a pin-up a day on it. A great source for pictures that arent web based. I'm hopping out after Christmas to see if I can pick a few up on sale.

I have used rubber cement to hang wrapping paper as wallpaper before. Just check the type of paint......sometime the rubber cement will leave a "grease mark" on the paint that doesnt want to be painted over easily. I have also seen people hang fabric on walls with powdrered starch. You soak the fabric in a starch solution and hang it like wallpaper. The girl that did it swore that the fabric peels right off and the starch solution will just wash off of the walls when you move. I didnt see that part for myself, so don't hold me to it.
I have also used a bizarre arrangement of small ceiling hooks (the holes disappear into nasty popcorn textured ceilings) placed right against the wall with dowel rods hanging across them ( like tiny curtain rods) to hang lightweight things from. That way you dont leave a million holes in the walls and they never seem to check the ceiling unless you take a chunk out of it.

Not too girly at all.......... how nice would that look over a beautiful dark blue onsie?  For a boy or a girl.

Such an adorable take on the old tissue paper decorations from elementary school. Way to go!
9  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Re: Has anyone heard from Rakuette? on: November 14, 2005 10:05:18 AM
This doesn't sound like her from what I know. I was her partner in the Zodiac swap, when she was hit by Katrina, and she found a way to get on line via a cell phone to let us know that she was ok and had mail service and was working on getting all of her swaps together. She was very comunicative about her situation. She just didn't strike me as being "trouble" if you know what I mean. I hope things are well with her though, she seemed so active here. I hope this helps out somehow and isn't just chatter.

The Romans usually ate in a reclining position. You could hide your furniture and have throw pillows around for people lay have a lay down while they nosh. Dates and olives are probably a safe food bet.
