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

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Christopher in Charcoal on: October 06, 2004 07:06:27 AM
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'! 

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / How to knit a painting... on: June 23, 2004 08:44:52 AM
I made this piece in memory of my grandmother who was an amazing knitter.  I'm a painter but used to knit with her during the summers when I was young.  I wanted to find a special way to honor her creative influence on me.

I took one of my 'unsuccessful' paintings, cut it into half inch strips and then sewed the strips together end-to-end.  I knit it back together and hung it on a tree branch I took from her yard.

7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 'Secret' - Julie Kramer, 2003 on: June 16, 2004 03:39:19 PM
This is painting I made last year with water-based oils.

I have more paintings in the artwork section of my website at:  http://www.nathanlovesmary.com/artwork.asp
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chip Bag Clip on: June 01, 2004 12:26:44 PM
I make these Chip Bag Clips with my Boys & Girls Club students every once in while.  They're super easy to make and turn out really cute.  All you do is glue alphabet soup letters to a clothes pin and spray paint it whatever color you want.  You could attach a magnet strip to the back as well and hang it on your fridge.
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Promote your website online on: March 18, 2004 12:48:40 PM
A friend just sent me an invitation to sign up at www.friendster.com.  I did a search on it here and saw it mentioned briefly.  Anyway, it's a way to link to other people.  Even though it's mostly for dating or making new friends, you can post that you're only there to help connect people and then use your bio to promote your website or business.  I've seen completed project pictures posted here that linked to a similar site called myspace.  Why not?  Every little bit of promotion helps - usually.  
10  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Looking for 'real' women to model my shirts on: March 11, 2004 11:04:40 AM
I'm looking for some new models for my tee-shirt line at www.nathanlovesmary.com.  We're still building the website and I'd like to have a different model for each shirt by the time we finish.  I can put a blurb under each pic to promote the model and link to her website.  

I'd love to have some of you creative women  on the site because I really love and respect what you do!

If you're in the Boston area, I can come to you and snap a quick digital photo (these are meant to be candid).  Or, if you happen to own a Nathan loves Mary. shirt you can snap your own photo and email it to me (I'm pretty sure no oe on here does, so maybe I can mail some out).
