1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ribbon Skirts on: June 14, 2006 02:22:48 PM
I just made a bunch of ribbon skirts as dance costumes for a Boys & Girls Club dance recital.  Pinning each ribbon to the waste band took forever but they turned out really cute!  They flow and bounce as the kids dance so I bet they'll look great on stage.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Headband on: October 14, 2005 09:35:19 AM

Fast and easy!  You can knit this on circular or straight needles.  I cast on 50 stitches and use 2 strands of yarn for the 3 wide stripes and one for the alternate color.  4 rows of each color.
3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Crafts for the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham on: October 04, 2005 11:24:47 AM
Dear Craftster Friends,

I'm collecting *new* items and handmade goods for a Holiday Bazaar to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham on Friday, November 4, 2005.

If you would like to make a donation please contact me at jkramer@bgcstoneham.org or send your donation to:

Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham
15 Dale Court
P.O. Box 80064
Stoneham, MA  02180

If you would like to know more about what kind of programs the Boys & Girls Club offers please read on...

For over thirty years, the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from all economic, social, and family circumstances.  The Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham has actively sought to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have had difficulty in reaching.  We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures, regradless of their economic or family circumstances.

In a world that has never seemed more threatening and devoid of promise for a disproportionate number of America's children, the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham provides a tangible measure of hope.  The Club offers young people what they need and want most - adults who respect and listen to them; a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and interesting, constructive activities that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.

A youth development strategy underlies all Boys & Girls Club programs and fosters a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem.

The Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders.  It is facility-based and offers daily access to a broad range of classes and activities in five core program areas:

Character & Leadership Development
Education & Career Development
Health & Life Skills
The Arts
Sports, Fitness & Recreation.

Today, over 700 boys and girls at risk and in need are taking advantage of the programs, activities, and services provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham.  They benefit from trained, caring, professional staff and volunteers who help young people take control of their lives, envision productive futures, and reach their goals. 

Fundraisers such as the upcoming Holiday Bazaar enable us to keep our membership fees low and affordable so that our programs remain accesible to everyone.  You can make a difference!  Please consider using your talent to make a gift to donate to the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham.

Thank you!

Julie Kramer
Cultural Arts & Education Director
Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham

The colors you chose are interesting because they're cool (meaning - not warm like reds or oranges).  It's a a good contrast to the 'steamy' image.  I wouldn't expect that and it's good that way.

Your drawing is beautiful, and so meaningful!  I think it's great.

I think you should start drawing again!  Your work is great.  It would be a shame not to do it if you enjoy it.

Nope, not the same Julie Kramer.  Oddly, we have the same first and last names our mothers even have the same maiden names!  I used to call Boston Clubs when I was younger and just put myself on the guestlist for shows with her/my name.  Since she's on the radio most people didn't know what she looked like and they couldn't argue my ID.  I saw David Bowie at the Avalon that way!  I never told her that.  Maybe I should come clean.

How many people get the chance to spend three and a half hours staring at the person they love?  Drawing someone brings it to a different level.  Everyone should try it, even if they're not an 'artist'!

Water based oils are usually available at the chain stores like AC Moore and Michaels too.  You'll find them near the oils.  Keep an eye out for the water based oil medium too.  If you cut them with too much water they act like acrylics, so if you want the buttery quality you'll need it.
