1  Re: Disposable Camera Rd 7 - Click Here For Photo-ey Goodness! in The Swap Gallery by silverlining86 on: May 27, 2010 07:59:28 AM
I received from MandyP last week and finally have a break from life to post the pictures!  All of her shots were great and it was so hard to choose which ones to post!

First off... the awesome frame she made!  It is so cute!

Everything all together! I got some biscuit mix, some trail mix, and a cute little scrap/photo book!

Although I am not a member of the church I thought this photo of the LDS temple was beautiful so I had to share!

An actual working Grist Mill. (Where the biscuit mix came from!)

I love this sculpture, named "On the Fence"

MandyP's town is full of beautiful parks and great photo ops! I am super jealous!  Thanks Mandy for all the great pics and great treats!  Your package was wonderful!

I recieved from Pinky Damone! I was on my way out the door to head to work and spotted the package on the stairs. Of course I ran back into my apartment with the box immediately to open it up!  I had to wait til I got out of work to post pics though. So here they are!

Group shot!

Awesome set of plates with cameras painted on them! They even match my kitchen perfectly!

Magnet. The girl's shirt has f-stop rules on it for photography.

Travel themed notebook. I'll be using this as a travel log for future road trips.

A cute little Disney Princess toy camera that has found its place among my other cameras. It says phrases when you click the "shutter" How cute!

I love everything.  Thanks so much Pinky Damone!

4  painting disgusting plastic bathroom tile in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by silverlining86 on: January 27, 2008 09:25:02 AM
I moved into a new apartment recently. I'm renting from my dad so I can paint and make it my own space. My plan is to conquer the batroom first.  I found a can of paint on the Lowes clearance rack for 5 dollars. It's a really pretty blue but the problem is I have this hideous plastic tile stuff half way up my walls that won't match the paint I picked out.  I don't want to tear it out because it will be too big of a project. So I considered spray painting it white with fusion spray paint. Here is a pic of the ugly tiles

Anyone have any ideas?  Should I prime it first and seal it afterwards? I am lost and tired of this icky bathroom

Malina asked me to post a pic of what I sent her because she is currently without a digital camera.  However, silly me only took a group pic of what I sent her and no individual pics.  So when she gets a camera she will post individual pics. Until then, here is a pic of everything.

(pardon my cat's huge head. he was eyeing the ninjas)

The pink and brown in the back is an apron with a slant pocket made with this tutorial: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/crafty_tool_belt  Also included in the package was a coupon organizer (the striped object that says "cheap ass bitch" on it), ninja and button bobby pins, a container of buttons, a cuff bracelet made from a record, a melted cd pendant, a ninja pendant (also made from the record), a bag of ninja figures, a chinese take-out box (that all the little things were packaged in) and four ninja rubber duckies.  There was also a bandana blanket not pictured here but you can see it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196395.0  Quite a few of the things I got the ideas for from her wist.  I misplaced my copy of the price list so hopefully Malina can fill you in there. I believe I went just a few cents over $10 though.

7  What's Your Favorite Movie Snack? in Dessert by silverlining86 on: September 29, 2007 08:11:00 PM
One of my favorite things to do on Saturday Night is stay in and watch movies. I usually go out and rent several movies at a time and stay up late watching them.  Of course you have to have snacks with your movies and of course you can't go wrong with popcorn but I was wondering what are some other things that people enjoy snacking on during movie night.

Here is one of my favorites: Chex Chow

melt about 1/2 of peanut butter in a quart sized bowl.
stir in about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of hershey's chocolate syrup (you can also use melted chocolate chips)
pour in enough Chex (I use the rice kind) cereal so that the chocolate and peanut butter mixture will coat the cereal.
Place about a cup of powdered (confectioners) sugar in a large ziploc bag. Scoop in chex mixture, seal bag tightly and shake the hell out of it :p

pour into a clean bowl and enjoy with your movie!

This snack also goes by the name of Muddy Buddy Chex Mix or Puppy Chow.  I remember having it at just about every class party in elementary school.

I received from Malina today! Yay.  I thought I wasn't going to be able to pick the package up until tomorrow because the main office at my apartment complex where the packages are usually left was closed for the day.  But then I opened my mailbox to find a key to a drop box.  Cheesy  I was so excited.  So here are all my goodies. I love everything!

The entire package.

frames.  most of the glass marbles fell off the smaller frames so I'll have to glue them back on.

tons of paper/scrapbooking goodies! Inkjet photo paper, stickers, brochures, scrapbooking paper I love it all!

A shirt that the frame was wrapped in which is cool! A camera!!! I collect vintage cameras! And an awesome journal that says "Time to hit the road again!"

I didn't get a price list in the box and sadly there was a big hole in the side of the box when I got it so hopefully I am not missing anything.

Thanks so much Malina!

Price List:

Large frame - $1
Small frames - $1
Vintage camera (with a roll of film that I'm curious to know what they photographed) - $2
Photo paper - $1
National Geographic (there should have been 4 more) - .10 each
Earrings - .50
Scrapbook paper (wrapped) - $1.00
Scrapbook travel related stickers - .10
T-shirt - .10 (this was my softball team way back when)
Journal - $1
other scrapbooking paper and stickers - FREE
Marbles for picture frame - $2 for 2 packs

Sadly I was missing 3 National Geograpic Magazines and 2 1/2 pairs of earrings.  I only had one single earring in the package when I opened it. Darn post office. Sad

9  Yikes! Definitely not 6mos in Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions by silverlining86 on: September 20, 2007 03:58:40 PM
I'm making these pants for my 6 month old niece from the McCall's pattern M4280 and there is no way these are going to fit a 13-15lb baby despite what the packaging says. I used the smallest size pattern and followed it exactly. Here is a picture of the pants. They looks as if they would fit a toddler!

(The waist looks huge because I haven't added the elastic yet)

What could I have done wrong and what can I do to fix these?  I am seeing my niece tomorrow so I am going to add the elastic to the waist and I guess try them on her to see just how big they are. I'm thinking if they're way too long I might just wait til summer and she can wear them as capris then.

10  How to make a throw blanket like a poor college student... [img intense] in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by silverlining86 on: September 16, 2007 12:50:35 AM
So one day while I was flipping through a celebrity tabloid I saw a picture of one of Britney Spears' boys with this awesome blanket. I googled the blanket and found the site that sells them for $125!!! I knew I could easily make one as it was only bandanas sewn together. So I made a trip to hobby lobby and picked up lots and lots of bandanas for only $0.10 a piece (I think they were mis-priced :p)

So now, onto how to make your blanket like a poor college student.

First off: gather your ten cent bandanas
(pile of bandanas)

You need to prewash your fabric so when you wash the blanket your colors don't all bleed together and your fabric is preshrunk.  Now, if you are a poor college student like me you wash your fabric in your bathroom sink because all you have is coin-op laundry at your Apt. and you spent your last quarters at the meters (that you're not supposed to park at) on campus.) Btw: this is seriously how I do laundry on the weekends.

so prewash your fabric like so...yikes look at that water afterwards!

Now you need to dry your fabric. If you're unfortunate like me you'll have two problems here 1. the dryer at your apt is broken and 2. you don't have any coins to use it anyway (see above).  So what do you do?

you make a clothesline out of craft cord and your dining room chairs and use a box fan to dry your fabric of course!

Your fabric will probably be all wrinkled now so you'll need to iron it.
http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d41/silverlining86/bandana6.jpg[/img] [img width=422 height=317]http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d41/silverlining86/bandana7.jpg
here we are ironing our bandanas, and now we have a nice neat stack.

What next? We sew them all together like quilt blocks. I used 6 bandanas and sewed them in 3 rows of 2.
the top of the blanket all sewn together. (With Mr. Boy George all cuddled up underneath. silly kitty)

Repeat the above steps for the back.

Next we scrounge up some batting. (I was lucky enough to find a package in my parents' basement). Next you go get something to drink and comeback to find this...
Awww he looks so cozy...too bad, time to sew.

Since both top and bottom look pretty much exactly the same choose one side and baste your batting to the wrong side of the fabric. Flip it over, lay your top layer right sides together, pin and sew. Make sure you capture the batting in your seams and be sure to leave an opening to turn the blanket.

Next turn the blanket right side out. Tuck your edges under at the opening and topstitch closed then continue the topstich all the way around your blanket.  When you're finished you should end up with something like this:


Voila, a blanket...all for $1.20! Can't beat that.
