1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Any ideas on home made eye cream or remedy? on: April 30, 2004 06:58:16 AM

I'm at that stage where I don't have wrinkles yet but I small fine lines are starting to appear. Therefore, I buy moisturizers, eye gel, but I haven't found one that i like and they're usually pretty expensive.

Any recipes, ideas, tips, recommendations, comments, etc..., would be really appreciated.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / how to organize/store purses on: February 25, 2004 09:08:36 AM
I didn't know where to post this topic, so i put it here.
I need some ideas as to how to keep my purses/handbags stored and organized. I have a bunch and lately i've been buying clutch style purses. I would like to have them displayed somewhere not just hidden all on top of each other in a closet, so that I can see them and pick the one that i want to use.
I was thinking shelves, but... not sure.
Any ideas?

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stencil Disaster on: December 12, 2003 07:02:18 AM
Hi girls,

I was trying to stencil t-shirts. I tried two...

The first one was a black t-shirt for a boy with an atary logo in white. Well... I made my stencil out of cardboard paper, my first mistake, so the paint smeared. Also the instructions on stencil revolution said to mix the textile medium (i think that's the name of it) with acrylic paint 50/50. I did that and it seemed as if the white paint mixed with the medium was too thin so it wouldn't cover the black of the shirt completely. I tried to add more white to it but still didn't cover completely. I tried to fix it with a brush, it came out worse. So you can see the black beneath the logo and it looks uneven, etc. in other words real ugly.  Shocked
The other t-shirt i tried was a white t-shirt with a black cat, the paint looked good but still smeared a little so the outline is not  smooth. This one is still wereable but the other one  Embarrassed

Now i have a real ugly black t-shirt size large for boys, that i don't know what to do with. My husband says i would look ridiculous wearing it, so just to wear it around the house. I would like to fix it somehow or make it into something else. But how do i fix my stencil disaster.

Also i would like to give stenceling another try so if you have suggestions or tips I would really appreciate it.

Another thing is , I wanted to make something for my nephew (who is 9 years old) but since the stenciling thing didn't work I don't know what to make for him anymore. Any ideas?
