YES. but it'd have to wait til Mar. 16, as I've not been on Craftster for a month til then...
But I'd love love love love to have a pagan swap! Even a Wiccan swap, though I'm neo-druidic, but I have Wiccan tendencies. I hope this swap happens!

wow! those are fantastic. And babe I wish I had your bravery- I'm shaped about like you and I can't bring myself to wear shrugs... I'm always afraid to draw attention to my giganto boobs, but you look awesome. Maybe I'll swallow my fear and give it a shot...

EDIT: PS I have almost that exact ankh necklace...
476  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Need ideas for care package (img heavy!) on: February 28, 2006 10:28:24 PM
Okay. *deep breath* here goes my first real post...

I'm making a "care package" for my long distance boyfriend. It's kind of sad, we've been long distance for a year and a half and I've only made him two things previous to now ( a journal and a scarf)... and he's moving back up here in a month. Geh. Well, anyway, I've made a few things for the package- some fake antidepressants, because he gets depressed but doesn't want to take real ones, so I made him some sculpey ones with cute lovey things written on them, and a prescription bottle with a new label that says "read one pill as needed for depression:

and four "songpages" because I'm terrible at writing love letters, so I made these scrapbooky- type things wherein I took the lyrics of cute songs about long distance relationships and staying strong and whatever and put together little pages that match the song...

The first one is the song "Goodnight Starlight" by Juliana Theory.

The second is "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service. The little people are made out of sculpey, and are made like puzzle pieces because of the line "I have to speculate that God himself Did make us into corresponding shapes like Puzzle pieces from the clay"... and they're on top of a mountain because of the chorus.

Third is "The Best of Me" by the Starting Line.

And fourth is "If All Else Fails" by Matchbook Romance. This one's my favorite. I LOVE how the little paper doll-girl came out.

Well anyway, my question is this: I need to send this package soon, or he'll already be up here. What else could I make that wouldn't take long? the package just seems too empty! I'm gonna write a real letter tomorrow and stick it in there, too, but I'm at a loss for other things.
Any input would be greatly appreciated... oh, and comments/critiques on what's already here would be welcome, too!

glue dots are FANTASTIC. If you have something smaller than the dot (like really thin ribbon) just put the item on the edge of the dot, pinch it with your nails, and tear off whatever's stuck to your item. I can usually stretch each dot to 2 or 3 items that way- just be sure to touch the dot with your fingers as little as possible so it doesn't get oily/acidy. I looove glue dots!
Also, those adhesive runners are positively wonderful. Sooo easy to use, and you can reposition stuff if you need to.
478  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Re: actual book or pieces of paper? on: February 27, 2006 06:24:05 AM
I bought a cheap $10 scrapbook from Walmart that is absolutely gorgeous. It came with 10 pages already in it, already in page protectors. The pages in the protectors are 12x12 and a sort of thin cardstock. Since most of the decorative papers I find are 12x12, I use those as backgrounds and just slide the whole thing in on top of the cardstock. It acts as a more sturdy backing and makes it easier to do everything double-sided (so I can still switch the pages around if I want to.) If you can find one like that, it's really nice. I also like the nice big page size. Gives me a lot of space to work with- and I don't like really cluttered pages, so I can spread everything out!

Wow. that is seriously cool. Can I... uh... steal this idea? Pretty please?
480  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Whats your size/challenge? on: February 21, 2006 09:22:23 AM
I'm 19, 20 in 2 weeks, and I'm a strange mishmash of sizes.
My bra size is 38 G. Don't even get me started on that. grr. I'm hoping to get a reduction soonish, so that'll get fixed, I hope.
However this means that even though I'm really a shirt size L, I have to get size 1X if I want anything to fit my boobs, meaning that said shirts hang off of my waist weird.
My waist size is probably 14, but all my fat centers around my belly and "spare tire" area, so I have to wear 16/18s to get pants and skirts to fit, but then my thighs are completely muscle and I have a tight little butt so my pants are really baggy everywhere but my belly. If I had the guts I'd just wear "low rise" jeans under my belly but I hate the way that looks- with all my fat hangin' over the waistband.
All in all it's really frustrating trying to find clothes. I usually just buy everything too big, but when I do find something that actually fits everyone compliments me and asks if I've lost weight.
I have lost 10 pounds since Christmas, which brings in another problem- reconning all of my favorite clothes once I've lost all the weight I plan on losing.
