if anyone is interested in going the printed fabric route rather than the iron-on route, here's a great deal on those inkjet fabric sheets. $12.38 for a pack of 10 sheets (8.5 x11):

genius!!  now i can use a graphic on my labels instead of just a name. 

TIP FOR ANTI-FRAYING - i use a product called "Fray Block" that i buy from joann fabrics.  it comes in a turquoise and purple squeeze tube.  you just squeeze a little bit of the clear liquid onto the edge of whatever frays.  it dries clear and won't wash off.  (it has a really powerful chemical odor when it's still wet, so if you're prone to addictions...)

someone mentioned webdwarf, a free web design program... i use sitespinner, a web editor by the same makers.  it costs $49.99 but with more features than webdwarf.  the program is worth every penny!  it comes with templates, but i decided to make mine from scratch.  my webhost is www.ipowerweb.com.  $7.95/mo. they provide templates as well as various shopping carts and a bunch of plugins like guestbook, form mail, blog etc!
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Machine / Serger Recommendations on: December 15, 2004 02:38:39 PM
awhile back i posted touting how wonderful my $100 brother machine was... well, things began to slowly decline.  it started to make super sloppy stitches and the thread tension dial didn't seem to have an effect on, well, the thread tension, anymore.  a tune-up would have cost more than the machine was worth so i told myself the next machine was going to be a quality one.  i found a husqvarna viking "lena" on sale at my local joann's.  it was the best $400 (reduced from $700) i've ever spent.  yes, pricey, but it's better than shelling out $100 every couple of years for a new machine.

let me tell you about this baby!  it hums along and can sew right through anything!  i couldn't believe how quietly and smoothly this thing sews.  my old brother machine sounded like a machine gun and made the whole table shake.  with my viking, someone could probably do microscopic surgery on the same table and not be disturbed by my sewing!

i will never again buy anything other than a swedish-made husqvarna!!

hello!  i'm also in w. hollywood.  i go to the joann's in sherman oaks (just hop on the 101 north and exit at coldwater cyn, right on off ramp, left on riverside dr. -- cross st. is fulton) and the michaels in glendale.  there's also "the art store" on beverly and poinsettia.  for fabric, downtown is the place to go.  i also love f&s fabrics on pico blvd at manning. good luck and happy craft supply shopping (one of my fave pasttimes!)

string them together with jumprings and turn them into a room divider or curtain of some sort?  i'm sort of hung up on turning anything into a room divider these days!!

here are some ideas for amber prescription bottles:

1) use them to store needles!  you can create a miniature sewing kit to stash in your bag.  it's better than using a film canister because you can see through these.

2) i haven't given this a shot yet, but i hope to once i collect enough bottles. i was thinking of making miniature lanterns out of them by removing the lid, then drilling a hole big enough through the bottom so that you can fit a bulb from a string of white christmas lights through them.  it'd be neat to "install" an amber bottle every two feet or so along the string of lights.  then you could hang the lights with their new "lanterns" across a patio or something.  it looks cool in my mind, but who knows how it'd look in real life! there's also the danger of being mistaken for a prescription drug junkie.
