Yeah, I'd really like to find a mixed bunch, but I'm not counting out artbeads, I really like their stuff... I may be missing something, but I don't see any rhinestone/flatback gems on fusionbeads, and MegaJewels won't let me on the site without a login?

Wow, thanks for that link, that outta keep me busy for a while LOL. The only thing is I don't see a way to get a variety mix of colors... I'll end up going overboard if I have to pick the colors individually LOL.

Noone? I've looked on ebay and such, but it seems to all be the iron on kind, which is not what I want.

Looking for a place to get lots of Swarvoski rhinestones/flat back gems for a decent price. Looking for mostly 3mm and smaller. Anyone have any resources?
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Questions About Hairstyles! on: October 07, 2008 07:00:43 PM
OK, I've got a while, I'm way ahead of myself here LOL, but I like to research as much as possible so I might as well start now.

I've been planning on doing something really different with my hair, but I kept putting it off because I had better things to do with the money, but now I'm pregnant, so I'm stuck all blah brown for now and I don't want to cut it untill after winter's over because I will fleeze LOL... BUT, once baby's born and I have a chance to heal and everything, I want to have a pamper myself session to get over the fat nasty bloody messy stages LOL.

These pics are from early July, but not much has changed with my hair, maybe a smidge longer, but that's beside the point.

and this is how it looked last time I got it chopped (I took off over 18", it was about a year ago probably, it grows back uber fast LOL)

I think I kinda want it like that again, but maybe with a couple longer bits in the front and I want to go shorter in the back, something similar to this...

(but I'm very open to other suggestions, you girls are amazing!)

I was thinking of keeping my natural color and adding black and purple to it, most likely black chunky lowlights and most of one side purple, but I duno... Any ideas?

Also, my hair is EXTREEMLY THICK and virtually untouched. I did play around a bit with color years ago (blonde highlights, all blonde, blonder with platinum highlights, then black with red highlights that washed out uber fast) but haven't touched any dye in at least 5 years. I don't use products, I don't blow dry, nothing. I just let it dry, brush it, leave it, or throw it up in a scrunchie or clip. I don't think I'll be any more apt to spend more time styling when I have a newborn either, so I'd like a style that's easy to maintain and a good quality color that's long lasting. (money is always tight these days, I'd prefer not to have to buy dye every 2 weeks, which is why I've given up on the idea of red or blue)

What is the most long lasting dye? What's my best bet for bleaching without damaging? I'm new to all of this since I've always just used cheap department store dyes or salons.

THANKS!!!! Cheesy

LOL I'm as weird as they come, but I still can't eat the buttered popcorn ones LOL. My husband's gonna hate you for this though LOL. Show a pregnant woman something really yummy that she hasn't had in years.... well, I simply MUST HAVE now LOL.

LOVE this... I want some now LOL, real ones to eat and some of these to wear! Tongue

Does anyone actually like the buttered popcorn ones? LOL I've never met anyone who likes them. Strawberry daqouri is my favorite for sure... but I love most of them.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "_____ in a box" gift ideas. on: February 05, 2008 05:09:52 PM
OK, I want to make a 'in a box' for my niece. I raised her for 6 years and I still remember the day she was born and now she's turning 13!!! Sad She's way to informed and mature for my likings and she knows that it bothers me, but that I'm there for her through everthing and anything. Anyway, I pick on her for being all grown up and she picks on me for babying her so much... Tongue She's a diva, wants to be a model, boy crazy, sporty, tough, SPOILED, etc...

I was thinking something along the lines of "STOP GROWING UP in a box" (gotta be a better title though LOL) Here's my ideas so far....

Pepper Spray & Emergency whistle (to fend off the boys)
Funny T shirts (Boys BACK OFF or something silly like that)
Pacifier/Baby Bottle candies
Playlist of silly songs we both like from Veggie Tails, etc...
Teady Bear
Sleepover kit (with me, not her ghetto friends Tongue )
Disney type movie

Anything else?

HI everybody!
As Darkdaughter said, if you have any doubt about anything you must ask the right person, a proffesional in the field. Im a tattoist, and my piercers partners are clearly about clay for plugs: no.
First you must think about this: polymer clay has a short period of life, and people are using it for plugs only since a few years ago. That means that we cant know about the consecuences for health, cause we dont have still the chance to study the development of the potencial risks in a lifetime. So, if you dont know, better dont do it.
Second, i see some confussion about the non-toxic label on the clays. As Diane B. has told, clay is non-toxic after cured, and deffinetly you cant eat it if you care about your health!
And last, for all those people who decide to wear clay plugs anyway, cause theyre fine for now: please think in a future, maybe theyre ok now, but you dont know if its going to have a bad consecuence in 20 years. There are so much toxic products around us...if you know about the potencial toxicity of one the best thing you can do is not to use it, and not to think "well, i can be harmed by so many things, as i like this ill close my eyes and ill use it".
 Please if i said something wrong excuse my english. for simple things i have no trouble, but when i want to explain something a bit complex i feel like a fool! lol
 But i hope this helps, and please dont use clay for plugs, why to expose unnecesary? Wink

Amen, I'd love to go bungie jumping, sky diving, or swimming with sharks, all sounds exciting and somewhat worth the risk, I don't see clay jewelry as something I would risk my health for, it seems like something so easily avoidable by decorating plain stainless, titanium, glass, etc... jewelry with clay so that it's just as custom and beautiful, yet not a risk. I mean to each their own, but if it were up to me, I'd just get some tunnels and fill 'em or go with glass plugs or something.

Your english comes across pretty well, don't be so hard on yourself. I agree whole heartedly with everything you had to say. I'd worry more about MY grammar and spelling, LOL, and english is my first (and pretty much ONLY) language.

(also, one can get slightly flawed jewelry REALLY cheap at some body jewelry shops and customize the parts that do not contact skin with polymer clay and get the same effect without the high cost of jewelry or the potential risks of using pure clay, just for another option)
