1  UNITED STATES / Nevada / Holidaying in Vegas!!! on: November 05, 2004 04:32:59 AM
Hi all,

I am from England and am going on holiday in a couple of weeks to Las Vegas! I am very excited as it will only be the second time I have been to the US!! (the other time was 10 yrs ago!)

Being in England makes finding craft supplies a little difficult (we don't seem to have caught on yet!) and I really want to experience some of the US craft love you all seem to have Smiley I have heard about the chain stores like JoAnns and Michaels and even the depts in Walmart etc.

Well it would seem an utter waste not to try and get a little craftiness in on my trip, so basically I wondered whether there are any of those places in reasonable distance from The Strip? (we're staying in the Luxor). I can manage a taxi distance away... if I can get to the US in one peice I can certainly survive a car/bus journey!

We are in Vegas for about 5 days and as well as the normal touristy stuff (The Strip etc) if there are any other  places you think we should check out please let me know! Any cool/alternative music shop recommendations would also be good (that'll keep the boyfriend occupied!).

I hope you can help! Cheers, Lucy x
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old book --> Evening Clutch Bag on: July 01, 2004 06:14:12 AM
Hi guys, now I know there are about a 101 book clutches on the site but I want to show mine off too!  Wink

I have gone for a bit of a different approach and covered the whole book! For two reasons, here in England I seem to struggle to get the pretty Readers Digest books that I see so much of on here and I needed a classy bag to go to a "Millionaires Casino Evening". Plus cos it as such an old tatty book I wasn't worried about messing it up!

Anyway heres it is!

I added the decoration as a brooch (so I can use it elsewhere if I want) and to match my earrings (i cheated and bought those)! Hope you like! It took me quite a while but the posts on here certainly helped me to figure it out - Cheers guys!  Kiss
3  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Badge making machines in the UK? on: April 21, 2004 09:46:08 AM
Hi guys, I am looking for a badge (button) making machine!?!

I have looked at all the info on the Tool board and all the machines are from the US. I can only seem to find a toy one that you can get from the UK - i know badges aren't as popular here but I thought there would be something.

My only option seems to get one off ebay.com but that is going to sting me on postage and possibly customs Sad Ideally I want a 1" model like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=121&item=8100766186&tc=photo

Any leads or knowledge would be great... has anyone bought one? knows anyone that has one? etc  Huh
