Take one pair of $2 old lady flats from walmart.
Add tons of embroidery floss you found in your mom's closet.

Combine over a period of a few hours while watching cheesy movies. Embellish with 50 cent ribbon. and...voila! These were completely freehanded and are the first thing I've ever embroidered that wasn't a counted crossstich from a kit. Yikes, that canvas is unbelievably hard to get a needle through. My finger tips are killing me!

You can't tell in the picture, but the sunset and lightning bolt and sunset are accented with gold thread. Thanks for looking!

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / More Disscussion of Plugs on: March 12, 2006 08:06:38 PM
I was wondering if anyone has ever seen ceramic plugs (the ear-stretching sort). I've googled my little heart out and haven't been able to find any info. I've seen on here the Fimo is badbadBAD! but what about regular ole' ceramic clay? If it was properly and safely (no lead!) glazed would it be much different from the glass sort? I'd love to try making them, but I wanted to make sure there was nothing unsafe that I'm overlooking.
3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Craft The Vote! / Under-age but not under-ambitious on: June 20, 2004 08:51:02 PM
I'm really this close to getting all gung-ho about convincing people to vote. I'm not old enough to vote but I think it's really important that everyone who is do so. (and if he or she chooses not to, they should make it an educated decision)  I want to do some sort of service project with my Girl Scout troop concerning the issue. That said, my questions are:

How do I set up one of those booths where you can sign people up? Is there a website? Can I even do that seeing as I am under voting age?       

Edit: see RocktheVote.com      duh                  

What kinds of crafts have you made cheaply that can be given away to encourage voter turnout? Buttons and magnets are cool(especially if you know an uber cheap yet professional looking way of making them), but something to be remembered for would be best.
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / CD-R Spindle thingee on: March 22, 2004 08:15:30 AM
You know those plastic covered spindle things that CD-Rs come on? I've got a bunch just lying around because I'm a horrid packrat. Is there any way I can avoid throwing them away but make into something nice?
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Girl Scouts-Mom's Day on: February 23, 2004 07:17:18 PM
I'm going to be helping a bunch of girls scouts make mothers day gifts  in a couple months and I'd like to start planning my crafts now. The girls will range in age from Kindergarten to junior high (i know, BIG difference) I was considering (very seriously) splitting them up in two or three age groups. K-3, 4-8,or something like that. Here's the help I need: I need a craft idea (or two or three) that is age appropriate and not the handprint-on-sweatshirt thing theyre used to, but will still be sweet and sentimental for their mom's. Any idea's will be sooo appreciated. Thanks!
