1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: How to get a 4 day workout using a folding chair, a level, & 6 rolls of tape on: August 25, 2008 09:52:43 AM
I did this to my living room a few years ago, and I LOVED it. Of course, my stripes were 9 inches wide instead of four =) I also did it with dark brown which became a little opressive.

Acutally, there is a type of cucumber that naturually grows yellow. They are an heirloom variety called lemon cucumbers


Here is a link to a page with a little information about them. You can buy the seeds through seeds savers exchange if you are interested in more yellow cucumbers. Sometimes, also if the plant hasn't had enough water the cukes on the vine turn a little yellow =) Fun stuff, right!

DARLING shorts! Did you make your own pattern? Follow one? They *sort of* look like the Built by Wendy shorts. I haven't worn shorts in over 8 years but these make me want to bust out a pair! They are so wonderfully short shorts but anti-ghetto booty sorority girl stylee.

On an unrelated note I have that same bike! I love my schwinn suburban =) Shorts would be better to ride in than my skirts that get stuck in the spokes =) thanks for sharing!

what an AMAZING feat. You are a remarkably talented, brave and resourceful person. I bow down to you. Mad props to your patience and vision! I also cannot wait to see the pictures of it on you. You should totally be designing clothes for like anthropologie or something.
6  UNITED STATES / Indiana / Re: Let's organize an Indy Indie craft fair on: February 11, 2008 10:16:58 PM
I feel like any craft fair that happens in Indy should be better advertised, I sell on etsy and frequent craftster pretty often, I live in Broad Ripple and go to at least one coffee shop per day here in Indy, I even get to Irvington pretty often and I STILL didn't find out about the craft show until AFTER it had happened. I was really upset, because I was just launching my etsy shop at that point and I gladly would have participated/advertised. The only advertisments I saw AFTERwards happened to be on the myspace site (something I avoid...)

Had it been me, I would have fliered this lil' town up. That being the case, I would LOVE to be involved in a craft show of any caliber this time around. I do graphic design and would love to contribue free posters or fliers. I would love to be on a committee....
I don't mean to sound shirty, I guess I just felt uninvolved, you know? SO tell me where, how and when and I would love to get planning.

If you are raising children, Indianapolis is a great choice! I used to nanny here and there is always something cheap to do with your kids. Let me elaborate-

The biggest children's museum in the country is located in Indianapolis. This is an excellent place to visit, even for adults, I always learn something new and it's also home of one of the largest Chihuhly (blown glass) sculptures in the world. PLUS, a family membership with unlimited access for up to 6 people is only $88.

The Indianapolis zoo. I have only been here with the kiddies a few times but it is reputably a forward thinking green type zoo. The animals are in natural habitat enclosures, etc, etc. Very fun. The penguin house it divine.

The new public library was just finished downtown and it is once of the most beautiful buildings! It is basically one old neo-classical style library linked to a 6 story modern glass edifice by this amazing glass atrium flanked with steel flying buttresses. I love the library. The children's wing is an amazing place called playscape. They conuct daily story times and there is a planetarium!

Not to mention the Indy parks system rocks!

The art museum also has a really world-class collection.

The farmer's market scene is exploding and it is possible to get delicious organic produce inexpensively. The farmer I work for runs a CSA the website is here-- www.homesteadgrowers.com

Broad Ripple or Meridian Kessler would be my plugs for neighborhoods you should look at. Fountain Square is nice, but still feels unsafe to me at night.

All of this comes to you from a girl who was born and bred in small town Indiana, then moved to San Diego for a few years, then back to Indiana, settling on Indianapolis. I also take frequent trips to Chicago and Nashville, however, and would probably dislike Indy if it were more isolated, so to speak.

Gee, I hope this helps a little!

Thank you SO MUCH =) We're actually staying in a bed and breakfast that is a house that Frank Lloyd Wright designed =) I'm excited.

We are staying in Oak Park for two nights and Wicker Park for one.  I am a vegetarian and the boy is a carnivore so we like options that have varied menu choices. WE LOVE INDIAN and Thai food. The boy loves really fresh mexican.  I know we will be near Grant Park for one whole afternoon...we also like restaurants with really 'fresh' food vibes. Nothing too greasy spoon. We're on a budget though, so that's really why I turned to craftster. Google gave me a lot of lists but I don't want to get somewhere and then see that it is going to cost us A LOT of money.

I'd mostly like to hear about your favorite cheap digs and a good breakfast place!

Hey Ladies and Gents! My boyfriend and I are going to chicago in august for a week. We are going to Lollapaloza on Saturday and Sunday. We are staying at a bed and breakfast in Oak Park. We want to eat dinner out a lot and have neighborhoods with a good mix of shops to explore. We are not night owl people and love a good vintage or thrift store. I would LOVE some reccomendations for restaurants with good dinners that average about $20 a person. I would also love some good breakfast places!
Next, what are some neighborhoods that we can just walk the streets and pop into all sorts of different shops?
Any favorite thrift stores that aren't in the suburbs? Any yarn or knitting stores in the metro area? Any discount fabric stores?

Thanks in advance for all of your help!
