21  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: needed: cool onigiri/rice ball recepie on: December 16, 2006 11:38:36 AM
for the rice balls i make, i use tuna fish salad made the normal way and add curry powder to it. then i just but it in the rice ball. Also i have added avacados and cucumbers to the curryed tuna one of my favs. Also if your family is full of picky eaters just try using regular tuna salad its yummy with rice. Good luck
22  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: glass etching w/tape on: December 15, 2006 04:37:21 PM
i have only ever used a sand blaster for etching but for that i used hot glue, from what you are describing here i think it would work as well. Just use the glue to free hand what you want, and then but the etching cream on. using the hot glue will give you more controll than cutting tape might. I'm majoring in glass blowing, and hot glue is the official technique we use for etching and such.
hope that helps

24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help finding clothes for my body type on: December 04, 2006 06:33:02 PM
i second the structured jacket idea! i have a ton and love love love them, i find if i throw them on even over an old t-shirt i look more dressed up. another thing i do is i take every thing i buy to my seamstress. she does amazing work and makes every thing fit perfectly, when things fit perfectly they look so much better. I have found for pants (I'm 5'4") that old navy short pants fit perfectly (but of course i hate buying pants labled short!). but let me stress once again the seamstress idea, my body is also a weird shape, very short legs, regular sized torso, long arms. i can never find something off the rack that looks good, but if i like the style and print i find my seamstress can make it a knockout outfit on my body. one side note i find that i fall out of wrap tops and i am only a size d, so i would be really carefull about trying it on and actually moving around in one before buying it
good luck!

what about a shrubbery? you can buy plants in wooden pots at the grocery shops and then in there you could have the tickets?

fill the record bowl with some sort of  candy (unopened of course), that would make a great gift i think!
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Uneven Felting - Help Please on: November 20, 2006 04:45:48 AM
yes for hand felting you want hot water, soap, and bubble wrap for aggitation. here would be my suggestions, i use the smallest bubble wrap possible, and for soap i use dr bronners, its all organic, and works wonders felting anything and every thing. also i would have on hand more of your wool, just incase you have holes you need to fill with it. what you want to do to actualy get the part of your scarf to felt is get it very hot in the hot water, pour a lot of soap on, and roll it up in the bubble wrap, then keep rolling it, this should help felt it up. if you have any holes in your felting then i would add a little more wool from the yarn.
Good luck!

what great clothing! and your daughter is a great model for it all! she looks like quite the ham for the camera, at that age i ran as far away from cameras as possible.
29  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: What's in a perfect bag? on: November 19, 2006 11:57:22 AM
a perfect bag for me is one that fits over my shoulder or shoulders, i cant deal with holding it, or having it on my elbow. it also needs to fit my wallet and keys, cell phone, camera, cigarettes, small sketch book, and a pen. i don't like pockets because once my stuff is in there i never see it again, the only pockets i like are the little ones for feminine items so my boy doesn't see them while i do threw my bag
hope that helps
