Oh THAT is wonderful!! And for renters...you can always cut a piece of board to fit and mosaic that, and you can take it with you to make a nice table or something later!
I used to live in an apartment that had really huge, deep windows, and I always wanted to mosaic the inside around the windows. It would've looked awesome, but I doubt if my old landlord would've been impressed!
I love, love, love mosaic!

Before I got the tinsel tree I was trying to figure out a way to suspend a tree rightside up from the ceiling to keep the cats at bay but I never managed it. I did hang a long bamboo pole horizontally across the ceiling and decorated that with lights and tinsel and snowflakes/icicles for a few years. It was pretty cool actually.

I could not believe that some people lived without sewing machines! I grew up taking sewing lessons and we ALWAYS had the machine out and my grandma's would make us stuff. I didnt know that not everyone had a sewing machine until I was in grade nine and was making all my clothes. Everyone seemed impressed and I was confused!.

just the other day the boyfriend said "I can't beleive you asked for a sewing machine for christmas"
(he was refering to the price)
I, of course, freaked out and ranted on and on and on about how it will last me for far more years than anything else I was going to ask for and explained all of it's usefulness.
(I know he will just have to see it in action making him comfy pj's before he understands this)

That's funny. I have a lot of artists in the family, so we always had mostly family-made paintings and stuff. I clearly rmember being in KMart or somewhere with my mom at about age 9 and seeing the section with wall decor and saying "People BUY paintings?? Why don't they just ask their Grandma to make one?"

Yay! Thanks for picking me! It's 5 degrees F tonight (count em...5 measly degrees!) so I am all about hats!!!

Sewlikewhoa -- No meat, no problem! I PM'ed you, but it seemed like maybe it didn't go through.  Angry I am excited about your recipe book!

I claim Sewlikewhoa for a recipe book!

Here are my wishes:

I am desperate for Arm warmers/fingerless gloves, any kind (my first winter in Minnesota and I am already freezing!)

A Hat: I love this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57584.0

             Or a Chicken Viking hat  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21342.0

             Or a Panta

             Or a Hallowig from Knitty (!)

             Or a baby Yoda hat for my nephew (who isn't quite born yet but I already want to spoil like mad!)

             Or one with skulls, stripes or something like that

                                      -  I have a pretty big head (and cold ears!)

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag (I love the burgundy/black/grey/paisley colored one but any colors will work) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0;topicseen

Vintagey/kitschy embroidered or appliqued kitchen towels (fawns, mermaids, pinups, swallows, mexicana, cowgirls, pretty much anything from sublime stitching, my kitchen is green with accents in pink, orange,red, so anything will do!)

Decor items for my bedroom, which is pink and gold; something sexy, maybe 1920's, art nouveau, vintage nude, Japanese cherry blossom, something pretty and glam (I saw a gorgeous Louise Brooks embroidery on craftster https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59537.0 ) or this Anthropologie frame: http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=8543&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=451&iMainCat=381

Some kind of cute embroidery or other wall art for my bathroom, which is kind of a modern take on shabby chic, in light blue and white: a mermaid or nude maybe?

Anthropologie inspired items for bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or accessories!

Porn by numbers

Something Omiyage

Something Day of the Dead or Loteria inspired

A stuffed black squirrel, either in the style of those felt monster/kitty type toys or amigurumi. I never saw a black squirrel till I moved here, but there's one on my street. His name is Jimmy. He refuses to be photographed.

a knitted uterus (cause...why not...) (especially one that could contain a heatable bag of seeds & lavender for crampish times)

the infamous lipstick girl cozy https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39172.0

monster slippers (size 8-9)

A cool microscope slide necklace (I'm learning to make these but haven't got it yet)

Something Bollywood related

A Gromit (knit, felt, anything) (Sean the sheep or Feathers McGraw would be fun too)

A bowl's worth of funny fruit/veggies or eggs (knit, crochet, felt, as long as it's kitschy)

A vintagey rectangular tablecloth (pm me for dimensions) I love all the  ones on Anthropologie, or a cowgirl print, or anything fun, really. My DR is grey & mocha with red chairs but any colors will work.

My husband's college roomate dabbled in taxidermy, and to pass the time one winter he gathered squirrel carcasses and designed an entire scene of squirrels in a bar -- playing pool, sitting around drinking beer, shooting foosball -- he made the little pool table with balls, cues, everything.  It was hysterical in a 'I can't believe you did that with dead squirrels' kind of way.

Okay that's pretty damn funny.

I agree........maniacally laughing.

The best part?  he actually sold it to one of those generic chain steakhouse places that you see everywhere (Logans, Texas Roadhouse, Laredo) for a couple thousand dollars.

Is this guy your husband?HuhCheesy  http://www.roadsideamerica.com/attract/WIMADdead.html

I also once saw a woman on hgtv or something who made victorian dolls out of dead kittens (natural causes...but still...ick...)

I have  a VERY low threshold for dead animals, artistic or not. Yet they are weirdly fascinating, I must admit. As kids we had an elderly relative who was an avid hunter. My cousins and I would double-dog-dare each other to PEEK into his taxidermy room. They had lots of weird stuff like lamps made out of deer legs. It was kinda disturbing.

My Grandma just gave me her ancient Singer. It's at least as old as me and I am THRILLED. I brought it home on the plane as carefully as if it was golden goose eggs. I can't wait to break it out this weekend! I am about to teach myself to sew so I am totally new, but I've seen what my grandma could do with that old machine!

I love the smell of real Christmas trees.  Sometimes we use the fake one we have, sometimes a real one.  Have you guys ever heard of those upside down trees??  I heard on npr they were the latest trend. They are so hilarious!!!


Those would be another solution to the tree vs cat dilema!  Grin
