1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Re: my super awesome tiled colorful crazy bedroom wall on: August 13, 2008 04:14:22 PM
I just moved and my new room has these lovely purple walls in it that I have NO idea what to do with. And they're vaulted too, so they look completely bare...  Undecided  I'm DEFINITELY going to try this, thanks for the fabulous idea!  I don't know if you've noticed, but you sharing of your awesomeness has influenced a whole bunch of people's boring walls for good!  yay!!!   Cheesy

wow!!! That is absolutely fabulous! It's easily my crafting dream room.  Cheesy  And I definitely recognised the Ikea cube shelf thing.  We have a bunch of them in black with the cube boxes.  I love them!  You're organizational and decorational skills are astounding!  Bravo!  And I love the color you painted the walls, it fits a crafting room perfectly.

Wow!  I like it!  I don't know very much about fusing plastic, but it looks like you did a great job! Cheesy

5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Zippers on: May 01, 2007 02:03:43 PM
I did a quick search on Ebay and there's TONS of different packages to choose from!  There are some lots with less, but there was one with 530 zippers that look like purse sizes.  Most of the time the shipping was more than the actual zippers, so it's a really good deal.  If I could think up a really good reason to need 100 zippers, I would get some right now!!!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Candy Wrapper Bookmarks (SUPER EASY!!!) on: May 06, 2006 12:49:23 PM
I personally think that the foam works better because it doesn't bunch up or anything while your sewing, but it doesn't make that much of a difference, either one works.

I'll do a quick tutorial now and maybe I'll post some pictures later, here it goes:
First find your wrapper and felt/foam.  Lay the wrapper on the felt/foam and use a pen or something and mark off where your going to cut, or just free hand it and trim it back later.  Drag out the sewing maching and set it on zig zag on the wides setting.  I would use a scrap piece of felt and figure out what setting you want to use.  That part doesn't really matter, its just to hold the two pieces together.  Some people have mentioned using some clear vynal so if you used that you would cut that out like the foam and sandwhich the wrapper between the two.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.  It's pretty simple but I guess it can be a little confusing.   Wink

Wow!!!! Those are amazing!!!  I'm NOT an artist, I do enjoy drawing, but I don't have enough time to practice to get good at it.  I only saw a few things that kind of looked off a little.  On the third picture of the girl, her eyes seem to be a bit to high on her head.  That angle is so incredibly hard to draw, though.... On the one right after that, her head seems to be a little too wide.  I'm not sure which way, but it's either that the chin juts out too far, or the back of her head is too curved.  Don't take my critisism to heart... You have lots of talent!  That's easy to see!

It's been my experience, that free is not really free.  When you send away for something, you usually have to provide personal information.  And, you do not know what they are going to use that information for.  So unless it's a hand-out at a show, or something like that,  I'll pass it up.

That's a great point!  I just wish it wasn't true... Undecided
