1  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Re: would like to meet other Raleigh/Durham Craftsters! on: August 08, 2008 05:52:18 AM
I'm in Raleigh and would love to meet other crafters! I do some mixed media collage, crochet, felting and whatever else I'm in the mood for.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / An aluminum tire rim on: May 29, 2006 02:44:09 PM
One of the rims on my car was bent enough that any tire on it wouldn't hold air so I had to replace it.  However, it is not bent enough to be noticeable.  I haven't thrown it out because I know there's got to be some kind of cool thing to do with it.  I just don't know what that cool idea is yet.

Those are beautiful!  How did you make them?
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Polymer Clay Board? on: April 10, 2006 05:22:09 AM
I think it would be neat to have a clay forum with child boards for polymer, precious metal and earth clay.

In addition to starting it by going the wrong way first, I also weave the stick in and out.  Another idea is to start with a ponytail held by an elastic and have the hair stick hold onto that.

What about a scratchboard kit?  The tool-set from Claybord comes with a couple of different tools (fiber brush, steel wool, wire brush etc) and a small piece of claybord to start.  You could get this at an art supply store.

Or if you want to make something, you could make him a brush/pen/pencil holder.  Search the forums for crochet hook or knitting needle roll-up cases because either would work for brushes too.
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Beauty Sercrets Here on: December 18, 2005 07:18:48 AM
i don't use face moisturizer that much, but when i do, i always use the clinque yellow lotion (i forget what it's called). i like it, though. but i don't know a whole lot about that stuff.

i have a problem with lotion. i can't put any on my legs, whether i just shaved them or not, because i break out. does anyone know if this is because i can't tolerate it, or i just have super super sensative skin? i used one lotion one time that didn't make me break out and itchy, but i can't remember what it is.

I have this problem too, but mostly on my hands.  I can't even use hypoallergenic lotion!  I think I'm allergic to some chemical in most lotion because I've never had a problem with all-natural lotions.  I also found pure Vitamin E oil at the grocery store which works well.
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: Extra strong book binding on: December 18, 2005 06:08:53 AM
Glued binding (or perfect-bound) isn't as strong as sewn-binding.  Think soft-cover or magazine vs hard-cover book. The glue I would recommend is PVA.  It's clear, strong and archival. Don't glue the inside of the book to anything but the spine because otherwise the book won't open very well.

I'm not positive I know what you mean by the semi-circle, but I think you're talking about a little space between the inside spine and outside spine.  I would do this by gluing a piece of paper or fabric to the inside cover before gluing in the pages.  Make sure that this piece of paper is LARGER than the cover and don't glue it to the spine--only the front and back cover parts.  Then, glue the inside spine to the spine-part of the paper you just glued down.

Thank you!

Painting over embroidery works well too. It's a good way to use up scraps because it doesn't matter what color they are because they're getting painted anyways!
