Great concept, great execution, great gag.  Of COURSE he looks like an onion.

 Shocked *Gasp*  That looks just like her, but in a minimalist way.  I'm amazed.  (And I love Firefly!  Have to check out the swap page.) Shocked

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Minky kitties on: July 07, 2007 09:10:25 AM
My son Daniel asked me to make cat stuffies for him and his yet-unborn sibling.  I finally finished them.  I used the Wee Wonderfuls (Hillary Lang) pointy kitty pattern as a starting point, but mine is not-so-pointy.

The baby loves to hear his kitty meow and to chew on his tail.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Any other decoupagers? on: March 25, 2007 05:47:04 PM
ooh..I would love to get this conversation going. 

My most successful decoupage project was a cardboard box from Michaels.  I put a catalogue pic on top and painted stripes around it and it came out pretty cute.  I also modge-podged some wrapping paper motifs on a thrift store book case.  In both situations, I wish I had used something other than Modge Podge.  It sticks in our humid Southern air and ruins the project.

I need to do a project for a charity auction where pics would be decoupaged onto a wooden coat rack.  I thought I would print the pics on "fancy" scrapbook paper (maybe something with flecks in it, earth tones) and use water-based polyurethane.  Anyone have experience with more "upscale" decoupage?

Suggestions for a more durable, less sticky decoupage medium?

Too cute.  I looked at your Flicker gallery--you are so creative.  I love the robot-heart.  Sort of reminds me of Frank Baum's the Wizard of Oz where the tin woodsman wants a heart.

Dizzy Dog--

Bless you for volunteering at an Assisted Living place.  My grandmother is in one, and the residents are always so grateful for ANYTHING you do for them.  It is so rewarding.

Anything with music is great--if you have a way to play songs, you could do a "name that tune" game.  I bet the facility where you are going already has tapes or CD's with music from their era on it. 

Truth or Dare could be fun...heh heh.

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Clothing ideas for the hospital? on: October 16, 2006 07:09:20 PM
This is not a "crafty" suggestion, but it may be helpful.  I went to a class by a nurse educator who suggested wearing a nursing bra for delivery, so that you wouldn't worry about flashing anyone. 
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Jewelry making with kids? on: September 11, 2006 08:17:07 AM
I am looking for websites, books, etc that would be helpful for making jewelry with my son.  This would be a new craft for me (and for him).

He is 8 and loves sparkly stuff.  Cheesy But he won't want to use anything overtly girly, and the only books I've seen are geared towards tween and teen girls. 

I'm not sure exactly what he has in mind to make--gifts for his female relatives and things to wear around the house are my guess.

Is there anything in the "Jewelry Making for Dummies" genre that might be useful to us? 

Thanking you in advance!
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Reccommend me a sewing machine! on: August 26, 2006 11:01:51 AM
After I did battle with a crappy Singer (there's a venerable brand that got driven into the ground), I got very lucky at a sewing machine store where the owner sold me his mother's old Bernina 910.  Only driven to church on Sundays, dontcha you know.  It is just lovely -- very solid, does a few fancy stitches, takes lots of different presser feet, not fussy at all.  So if you can find a used machine in good condition, I would highly recommend it.
