this was super fun! i ran to the store today to make some. i just made a card out of one of the pieces of paper and i think it looks really nice. im going to put a stamp/drawing/cut out on the front but i cant decide what.

the red is actually koolaid and it worked well. i just put a few tablespoons of water in the package to make a really concentrated dye. plus my card now smells like cherries from it Tongue
44  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / nature journal (photo heavy) on: November 07, 2005 12:18:53 PM
hey all,
this is my first attempt at crafty bookmaking.  it was for an assignment for my "ecofeminism" course.  we had to do a nature writing piece and i decided to gather some flowers/leaves from the spot i was writing about and make a nature journal instead. naturally i got an A+  Tongue anyway im also thinking of submitting it in the environmental art festival my faculty has in the spring. i hope you like it.

front cover. i used a ripped up cardbord box which i think looks strangly organic, and paper that i dyed with various teas to get slightly orange/green/red tones

leaves and text (yes that is the craftster website on my desktop.)

48  CANADA / Ontario / where to buy a sewing machine in toronto? on: October 30, 2005 10:38:03 PM
hey all,
im looking to purchase my first starter sewing machine and after asking around it seems like buying an older reconditioned machine from a speciality sewing shop is the best way to go. problem is i have no idea where to look in toronto. help me please!

ps i live in midtown (eglinton west area) but i dont mind going downtown to look at machines. please ttc accessable only though, i cant get out to brampton or other GTA areas that easily.
49  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / plus size patterns on: October 30, 2005 09:24:28 PM
hey all,
i used to sew a little in highschool but I'm just getting my own sewing machine this month and I'm looking for decent plus size patterns. it seems most of the patterns out there for plus size are either frumpy or expensive.  any faves?  I'm particularily looking for anything with a vintage flair and that isn't terribly complicated as I'm not the best sewer yet.
