1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / steam-a-seam 2 lite & embroidery on: August 06, 2006 09:58:37 PM
I have Steam-A-Seam 2 Lite and the directions don't make any sense. Do I stick the Steam-A-Seam to the fabric that I'm going to be embroidering on before embroidering or after? I want to say before but then the thread on the back would cover all of the Steam-A-Seam so I'm so confused. Haha.

Any help would be appreciated.<3
2  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Crafty People in CT: Do you exist??? on: June 21, 2006 10:08:11 AM
I don't have any crafty friends and it's beginning to drive me insane. Seriously. Haha. I want somebody to craft with! My friends will come over when I say I'm working (working=sewing/crafting) but they say it's fine and come over anyways and all they do is complain about how they're bored, even if I offer to teach them how to make something. I want some crafting company!

Obviously I'm not going to be like, "Nice to meet you, here's my address!" if somebody actually exists in this area that's crafty, but if we chat online for a while and get along it would be awesome to have somebody near here to craft with. Even if someone reading this just knows of a crafting group that meets up weekly/monthly, I'd be more than happy with that.

As far as location goes, I'm in Fairfield County (Norwalk).

I feel like I just wrote a classified ad. Haha.

EDIT: I just realized it would probably be a good idea to give some more info about me. I've been sewing/crafting for almost 10 years. I predominately sew apparel, bags/purses, accessories, and stuffed animals. I dabble in almost every craft (my room is like a craft store...it's ridiculous) but probably spend the most time crocheting, embroidering, and making jewelry & paper goods. I've been going to school online since my sophomore year in high school. Hmm...what else? I'm a little hesitant to say my age because 99% of the people I have encountered who are the same age as me have appalling behavior and do and say the things that I did when I was 12 or 13, so please don't judge me based off of my age. Now that I've given my disclaimer (haha), I'm sixteen. Lastly, something completely random...I have a fat pug named Nala who snorts and is an adorable chubby pig. Hahaha. Ok, I'm done.
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Mini Irons on: March 09, 2006 10:28:29 PM
Struggling to drag the ironing board and iron upstairs to my room is way too much of a hassle to keep doing. I discovered minature irons but know nothing about them. Do they actually work? I would be using it mainly to press seams, fuse interfacing, and transfer images via iron-on paper or sulky pen. I found 3, so I'll post their pictures/names/prices. Any information you can give me on them and/or other mini irons would be fabulous.

1. Mini Travel Iron - $6.99

2. Mini Crafting Iron - $9.99

3. Heidi Swapp Pink Mini Iron - $12.99
<This image is no longer available>

I like the Heidi Swapp one the best, for no reason other than it's pink and adorable. Haha. Oh, and I already know about the Clover mini iron. It's too small. It would take me forever and a day to press a long seam with that thing.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Pet Recipes - What To Avoid on: January 01, 2006 03:34:46 PM
I was in PetSmart yesterday and noticed that most of the mixes to make your own pet treats contained sugar. It's extremely important to never give your pet sugar. There are some animals who benefit and even require sugar, but dogs and cats should never ever have sugar. Short-term, the sugar can make them sick and cause diarrhea and vomitting. Long-term, dogs and cats develop diabetes much easier than humans. 

If you want to know a treat that is safe for your pet, peanut butter makes most animals go crazy. My pug will sit and lick her lips for half an hour after I let her lick peanut butter off of my finger.

Milk is another thing that needs to be avoided with animals. Even though it might be tempting to give your cat a dish of milk, the lactose can cause horrible diarrhea. There are several different companies that make lactose-free "milk" specifically formulated for cats and kittens. Most of them contain vitamins, too.

Hopefully this is well-known, but NEVER give an animal chocolate. It's the most dangerous human food for an animal to ingest and can lead to death. My friend's dog managed to grab a brownie off of the table when nobody was home and they returned to find their dog incessantly vomitting and having diarrhea. They brought him to the emergency vet and his stomach was pumped. Unfortunately, he ended up passing away.

Just remember that even though your pet may seem like a little person inside of an animal's body, their digestive systems are very different from ours and can get extremely sick if they eat the wrong foods.

There are probably other things that I'm forgetting, so any additions would be very appreciated. If I think of more, I'll edit this post.
