61  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Free Michael's coupons FYI on: February 28, 2006 04:40:46 PM
Hey guys and dolls, I suppose I could have picked any board for this BRILLIANT tip, but I am a hooker, so I picked this one Smiley...

Did you know that every Sunday there are a miraid of coupons in the Sunday times? Of course you did, well here's my recycle tip of the day...

Go to your local Starbucks and sift through the newspapers on a Sunday evening. No, not the new ones on the sales rack, but the ones that all the Sunday Starbucks Loafers leave for the next guy! I work at a Starbucks and I tell you, there are always at lease 7 full newspapers in my store every Sunday. I snag all the Michael's/ crafty ones and I am set for the week!!!!

Just thought someone might like the tip!!!
62  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Birthday Month Swap March gallery!!! on: February 23, 2006 11:29:03 AM
Happy Birthday all you Marchies! Just a friendly reminder about this swap...
One of the requirements for a positive feedback is to have a Thank You note/card/letter sent, with in two weeks of receiving. Please remember to PM me when you send (a wish or a Thank You) and when you receive (a wish or a Thank You!). Also, please make an effort to post pictures of your goods.

Lastly, if you need a change in your feedback and don't see it within a couple of days, please let me know!
63  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / BIRTHDAY MONTH SWAP- MARCH!!! on: February 23, 2006 11:24:45 AM
Swap name: Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: javastain (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: 2/24/05-3/31/06
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

If your birthday is in March, please think of a list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better. The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is.  As soon as you've decided, PM me with your information.
Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post you list and bio on this thread.  Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please
Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in March for you to craft for someone.  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, and what item, and I will send you their address.
If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from youyou guessed it, negative feedback!
Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publically announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).

You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.
Original idea thread and discussion located here- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68058.0

If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "Birthday Swap March" in the subject line.

Hey there, anyone seen this...https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76112.0;topicseen. ? can anyone do this for us in Crocheting? I would be happy to do it, but I don't know how to turn all that script into the inderlined words... comprende? It wouldn't be as pretty if I did it unless I had a lesson in the 'finer points of the nifty things you can do with links and such', and that class is full at the local Joanne's  Grin

66  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / CLOSED: Crochet Olympics Official Thread on: January 17, 2006 02:36:53 PM
Ok guys here it is; let's do this semi-orderly ok?
Post yourself and a brief level you feel you are. Then post your project. If we have creative blocks, let's keep the banter on the discussion page, and only the actual Olympic-a-long here OK? Of course the usual crochet-a-long encouragement, diet and training techniques and other Olympic Team business is welcome!
Here's the discussion;

Go ahead and read the Knit Olympics link for the rules

Here's the official rules from the original thread for the knitting Olympics.

The 2006 Knitting Olympics

Eligibility: Any knitter who, embracing the "Citius, Alitius Fortius" ideal, would like to challenge themselves while embracing the Olympic spirit, and is just whacked enough to play along with me.

Concept: You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10)- and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Feb 26). That's 16 days.

1. The project must be a challenge for you to complete in 16 days.
2. There are no rules about what a challenge would be. Like the real Olympics, there are many areas to compete in. If you are a new knitter, then a garter stitch baby sweater might do...If you are experienced, well. I've already considered Torino. Use your own conscience.
3. While this is intended to be somewhat difficult (like the Olympics) it is not intended to ruin your life. Don't set yourself up for failure. (Olympic athletes may cry, but they do not whine pitifully, sob and threaten members of their family with pointed sticks because they haven't slept in five days. ) This is intended to (like the Olympics) require some measure of sacrifice, and be difficult, but it should be possible to attain.
4. No casting on before the flame is lit.
5. Finish before the flame goes out.
6. You may swatch before the games. (I consider this "training.")

The Knitting Olympics has only a gold medal. (There is only do- or do not.) Finishers get a gold medal button for their blog, their name entered into a draw for a chance at a prize from me, and the joy of knowing that they are an Olympic level knitter, no matter how experienced they are. You are only competing against yourself. (Well. And the Olympic schedule.)

-Stephanie Pearl-McPhee

Maybe we can come up with a gold medal for crocheters blogs too!?! Anyone?
67  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Olympics Anyone** had to be done on: January 17, 2006 10:21:46 AM
Ok guys, I guess we just have to do it! There's a Knitting Olympics challenge going on right now;
Is there anyone interested in creating a new event in the Olympics? Crocheting event? I would be happy to attempt to figure out a button similar to the one fo rth eknitters, we could have our own Craft Olympics!!! OMG! Off to training camp... ' honey cancel everything, I'm in serious training...' *runs off with lots of pointy things in hand*....
68  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Baby Boy needs a haircut!Help! on: January 13, 2006 01:27:49 PM
Hey all you creative hair people! I need some suggestions on what to do with this kid's hair<<<<<<. Yup that's my 16 month old son looking like Johnny Rotten over there, and I need some inspiration. Does anyone have a good web resource for hair styles or can you suggest someplace else to go for hip kid hair styles? We are a little punk rock, and a little hippy and a little main stream all at the same time. My daughter's hair grew only on the top of her head and she had  a mowhawk for the first year and a hlaf of her life, and I am Ok with doing that with my son's hair except his hair grows forward, and it is really hard to keep standing up, so it flattens out really easy. I suppose a fau-hawk could work...
Anyway, thanks in advance for anything you have!
