1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / working with vinyl records? CRAFTING HEALTH HAZARD!! on: April 29, 2008 08:45:05 AM

Hi crafters. It has recently come to my attention that PVC is widely known as a poison plastic, and it was only today that I suddenly thought of vinyl records (which are apparently also made of PVC) and how us crafters like to use them and heat them up in the oven without knowing how dangerous it is to do so!

for more information -  http://archive.greenpeace.org/toxics/pvcdatabase/bad.html
and this is an entertaining and informative flash animation:  http://www.pvcfree.org/

so people! Let me know if you think I'm right! and then warn everyone! PVC causes cancer, birth defects, releases dangerous chemicals which pollute our bodies, and contaminates other plastics when recycled with them! This is scary stuff! I have 2 vinyl bowls and my sister has one she keeps food in!!


2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re-using files! less time-consuming and/or icky ideas? on: September 21, 2005 11:02:08 PM
Hello evercrafterbody.

I work at a kind of not the richest clinic. We currently re-use our cardboard files (which I support, being a crafterbody!

But we use tippex/white out (to cover the names). smelly, time-consuming, white-out wasting...bad for the ozone...unattractive...eventually cracks.

does anyone have a better Idea to offer? (i considered stickers - danger of peeling!)
(and stapling pieces of old files over the names - also danger of falling off!)

does anyone give a care?

love talli

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Super Mario birthday pack! (image heavy) on: May 23, 2005 10:33:50 AM
 there really should be a board for super mario crafts. seriously. Cheesy Grin

this looks like a swap, but the only thing I'm getting in return is a thank you card...(I hope)
It's for my big brother's birthday, which he had all by himself in new york, while the rest of his fam is in Israel. I was inspired by the awesome mario quilt and all the other mario crafts on craftster.

the card is double sided (made up of a red pipe and a green pipe) folded in half symetrically.
the t-shirt has 2 printed sides. (mushrooms and 1up)
there's a little mario journal and the piece of paper with the evil mushroom on it is the 'tag', like in a shop. I called myself evil mushroom creations and told him not to vomit on it, or sleep in it, or harm it in any way at all. I also added:  WARNING: possible side effects may include: insisting on jumping into open pipes, having irresistable urges to jump on mushrooms and thinking your sister is awesome.

the envelope for everything  Tongue Smiley

and a shirt for me!

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Best stitch for words...? on: June 26, 2004 08:07:23 AM
Hiya all, sorry if this has been asked before.

In an attempt to do this project - http://www.thriftdeluxe.biz/projects/belt.asp

I cleverly went and bought an acrylic belt. So now I've decided to embroider the words onto the belt, but I'm not sure which stitch to use. It's a pink belt, and I want to use black floss/thread, whatever you call it. In big fat bold squarish letters (just outlining them) like the kind that teenage girls use a lot...

Am a beginner embroiderer and go for messy and cute rather than perfect and neat..you know, the overall effect. like this kitty makeup bag I made my sister- http://img33.photobucket.com/albums/v98/kukeit/kittybagimade.jpg
advice would be appreciated! thanks crafty gals (and any crafty guys) Cheesy

sorry about the grime on the scanner... gah!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dorothy from the wiz of oz dress? on: February 12, 2004 05:26:09 AM
hey sewy craftsters (i hope i spelled that right)

I want to dress up as dorothy from the wizard of oz for a party that's coming up soon. (but sexier - as in a way shorter skirt!) I found pictures of the dress on the internet but.... how to start ??

The thing is, I'm not sure how to go about making her blue ginghammy dress - will it be simple, or complicated....it looks pretty simple, but I haven't sown many dresses before.

If any of you guys have any tips or ideas or patterns or even the dress itself... Wink  Roll Eyes  

It would be appreciated!  Grin
