351  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I made my first duct tape dressform! on: March 08, 2006 07:20:39 PM
I just made mine the other day, and had my boyfriend wrap me up. He got WAY into it, trying to make it all semetrical (spelling??) but it turned out really great.

Also, it is a challenge for me too, because it is about to be that spring-shed all the christmas cookies off your ass- time, now I have a before and after doll. Weee.

And I also experienced the duct taped armpit...that part is sensitive.  Shocked

I was going to make some for this (I signed up too) But I didn't know the rules the post office has about postcards, so for my first round, I am just going to go the touristy Chicago rout. You know, th sears tower and what not.

What are the postcard rules, can you have things stickin out or anything? Does anyone have a websight I can research, becuase I couldnt find any.

this happens to me, too.  i take an attitude of leniency, because i get inspiration from others as well.  however, if it's an exact rip-off and it's threatening to your profits, you can take the legal route:
call the copyright hotline:  202-707-9100.
request the form "va" for visual arts.  there's a small fee and an application to register; you also need to send a couple photos of your work to the library of congress,  but this'll protect your creations for your life and give you grounds to get an injunction against the infringer.

(this info. is from wendy rosen's book, crafting as a business)

Coppyright is funny. We were just learning about it in my legal aspects class, and it made me think of stuff like crafts and what not, because you can't coppyright a method. There fore, if you come up with some new way to do something (make a shirt) and some one coppies it, you cant sue them for any kind of coppyright thing.

But dose design fall under that. My simplicity pattern sitting next to me has that symbol coppyright on it...but how can that be.

My point being, I think it would be hard to prove, and hard to take legal action.

Also, you CANT take legal action unless you register whatever you are trying to sue for at the US coppyright office. I know that.

I just did this for my productions management class. Some how were going to  shape it into a flyer. I wasn't supposed to make the flyer, we were all supposed to make something by today and post it on our online fourm and vote...but so far mine is the only one there...hmm.

Tell me what you think. It's for an event called "rock the block." It's our version of a block party in downtown Chicago.

I was walking to work the other day and had to stop myself from being late and making a pit stop. My bank account beware.

I frequent the 7 or 8 (ok, I was exagerating, but seriously, like 3 or 4) thrift stores on Miliwalulki (ass...I can't spell, I just retried to spell that word for like 5 minutes, and I am too stuborn to look it up) right around the congress theater. Just south of Fullerton, California stop on the blue line. Go early though, that area can get kind of sketchy some times at night.
358  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sushi anyone? on: February 19, 2006 08:49:33 PM
I made my own twice now. The first time the rice got too soft, so it tasted kind of slimy. The second time...I dont know, it just wasnt good. I think I'll stick to the restraunt stuff.

I dont know...I think I might stick to the throw away kind. Call me a bastard, but I like the throwing it away and forgetting about it bit.  They are fun colored though.   Undecided
360  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / What to do with all the Valentines leftovers---IMAGE HAPPY on: February 18, 2006 12:50:07 PM

Oh yeah, theres a little fabric in there too. All went well, except I got a case of the paper+glue warbles. See:

If anyone has a cure all trick to get rid of that, let me know. It is honestly the bain of my existence.

I used mostly mod podge...mod podge is my friend...but on the fabric I used fast try tacky glue. I also used the tacky gule to glue the pink top (The underside, the warbly part) to the top top. I Held it down for a while, but I was more worried about the corners and edges. I still maintain it did it when I wasn't looking. I am so OCD about paper ripples, I swear.
