61  UNITED STATES / Colorado / Colorado Springs-where to find tape for microscope slides.Please...... on: May 07, 2007 12:50:56 PM
Does anyone know where I can get the silver or copper tape used for microscope slide necklaces in Colorado Springs? I've called Home Depot,Ace, Hobby Lobby, Michaels...am I missing somewhere??
I did find the slides at a medical supply store.
62  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pillowcase+old trousers=new bookbag on: May 03, 2007 05:01:54 PM
So my daughter needed a new book bag and she doesn't like carrying ordinary type backpacks. We got a set of cool cowboy sheets for free at the end of a friend's yard sale. I took the pillow case for the outside of the bag and made a lining out of a pair of fake moleskin-suede trousers that I didn't like anymore and then sewed a strap out of the pillowcase fabric and suede fabric. I know this isn't quite as classy or well done as most of the bags you all post, but I'm happy with it-it took about 2 hours to make, including the sewing machine messing up and my daughter likes it!!

63  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Braveheart Bairn-Wee Baby Onesie Kilt-IMAGE HEAVY on: April 26, 2007 12:21:54 PM
I have been trying to think of something I could make and possibly sell and I love all of the wonderful outfits everyone has posted sooo I decided to make a prototype onesie kilt for my friend's 3 month old, Lincoln. My friend is more into cool than cutesy, so this seemed to work out! (Although it is cute!!) He's a bit of a chub right now, so he looks better in overalls and kilts than stretchy pants!!! I sewed the back pleats and the front skirt to the onesie and then the front apron part Velcro attaches.The buckles don't really buckle-they're sewn onto velvet ribbon fabric. Of course, my sewing machine decided to act up in the middle of sewing, so the tension was %#@*! But I'm starting on another one in green and saffron for my new little Irish nephew. I'll use more seam binding,etc... for the next, but my friend-and Lincoln -love this one. Please excuse the cheap camera pictures, but I really wanted to post  Grin

I spent a lot of time researching kilts-there are some incredible sites-men in kilts are sooooo hot!!(fans herself). There's even a site for G.I. Joe doll kilts!!!!
64  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Drawer+table+faux painting=cool record holder on: April 19, 2007 04:31:40 PM
I really like to find new ways to use old drawers...I know, weird habit. I also needed a place to hold some of the gazillion vinyl records my family still has.
So I had an old table that I found in an alley,,,yes, I am a trash picker, and an old drawer. I cleaned them and sanded them first, then I painted them all black. I then sponged on two shades of green and a little more black. You can then screw the drawer to the table, or just leave it sitting on top.
I've thought of making one to use as a memory table by making a plexiglass top and putting little arts and photos, etc... in it.
I'm sorry that the photos are a little hazy.

65  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Plant markers at Target Dollar spot on: April 18, 2007 09:51:57 AM
Just thought you might like to know that the dollar spot at my local Target has metal plant markers 5 for a dollar!! They come with a marker, but you could use a ball point to "engrave" it. they make your garden look all "botanical-horticultural gardeny"
These can get pricey, so I thought I'd share the info Grin
66  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Water features using solar energy?? Any info? on: April 17, 2007 01:29:31 PM
I would really like to put a fountain in my garden this year, but I would prefer to not use electricity from the grid. Has anyone built one using solar energy? I've seen a few, but they either seem really expensive or not too "fountainy".
67  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another no glue collage and way to store stash!!!! on: April 12, 2007 01:21:41 PM
I have so much ephemera that I have collected that sometimes I don't remember what I have and there is some that I want to just look at before I use it. SOoooo. I took a bunch of old  pages from a retro Mexico calender and some little Mexican themed pictures and put them between a piece of cardboard and a piece of plexi. I use those little clampy clip thingies to hold it together. Voila-instant picture above my craft table. I can take it apart to use the bits when I need them, but also get to enjoy looking at them 'til I do.]
By the way, a great place to get cool images is to buy calenders after the holiday sales in January.
68  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Eastern European costume hang-up on: April 12, 2007 01:03:36 PM
I have travelled a bit and I love to get traditional clothing from places my family has lived or visited. When we lived in Bulgaria my daughters took folk classes at their school and they got really lovely costumes for Christmas. I display them now on the wall. I turned it into a kind of non-permanent collage. There is a bamboo pole holding the sleeves out and I pinned cardboard inside to make it stiff. I then clipped postcards, handwoven bags, martenitzas(a traditional Balkan yarn craft) and a picture of my daughters in the outfits when they were small enough to wear the dress. I think that it is easier (and cheaper) then putting it all in a shadow box. You could do the same for any favourite clothing.

69  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Fire pits- how to build one??? on: April 05, 2007 07:41:24 PM
Does anyone have an interesting, yet safe Huh way to build a fire pit/fire bowl that doesn't cost a lot?I saw one in an old wheelbarrow that you could move around the garden/yard in a magazine, but I'm afraid that in my garden there is no such thing as an OLD wheelbarrow-they are all useable!!!
70  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Picket Garden Markers on: March 30, 2007 01:27:00 PM
I just finished making some markers for my vegetable garden and thought I'd share them. A neighbor took out an old picket fence and gave it to me. It was so old that it fell apart, so I am recycling it.

My kids think it looks like a garden graveyard right now!!
I just use Sharpies. I probably won't polyurethane ithem because I like a  weathered look.
