21  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: cute cuts for curly hair...help me out here? on: March 20, 2006 07:32:02 PM
I have a friend that has hair like yours in the cutest and easiest cut I've ever seen.

She is the one on the right, with the brown dress over pants.

Her hair is like this: very short bangs, so they don't curl.
A chanel a little over the chin with the sides and back shaved underneath.

Her explanation is that the bangs remind her of when she had very short hair.
The shaved underneath keeps it from getting too hot and she can tie her hair up whenever it's too hot.

I find that the shaved underneath keeps her curly hair from looking too full and the bangs keep it different and interesting.

I hope this helps.

Oh, by the way, you have such a pretty face. It's time to show it off.  Wink

P.S. My plan in the not-too-distant future is to start investigating how much it will cost to hire someone to handle many of the technical aspects of Craftster like configuring the server and database to handle such a large forum. Craftster is so large -- and growing all the time -- that it's time to bring in the big guns!

Someone else may have already suggested this, but I would look into making the topics purge after a while.  I know it's *really* neat to be able to check out topics from 2003, but at the same time, any pics from back then are often no longer available, and besides, it must make your database GINORMOUS!!!

Just a thought!  Smiley
Sorry to hear you have to battle databases with a flu.

On the other hand, I was thinking, when I saw the site down today again, that:
1) The database must be very big.
2) Mysql must have some kind of limit of size and this one must be near it to be getting corrupted every now and then.
3) That you really need a database administrator to check it out.
4) That I'd love to help, but I am not sure I understand mysql enough to.

In any case, when you get better, if you would like to bounce a couple of ideas, I'd be glad to help in any way.

Ok, I am going to be obvious, but...

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet or Knitting on: March 12, 2006 02:22:46 PM
I would go with crochet, because it is faster to do and easier to correct. I've done both.

On the other hand, maybe a coat would be easier - and look better- in crochet than a sweater. My mother used to do quite a few babies coats and, according to her "it is easy, fast and cheap".

I "kind of" remember the pattern she used to use.

The other recomendation I have for you is to do it much bigger than you think you should. Children are bigger at birth now than they used to be and they grow fast. Smiley

My mother actually did a few coats for me using a pattern a little different - actually, no pattern but a lot of trying on. They are too warm to use where I live now, but they are so beautiful that every year, on the ONE DAY I use one, someone cames to ask where I got it.

I have a Finepix S7000, an earlier model.

I like it very much and have been working with it this last year.

You can see samples I did with this camera on http://leticia.entao.com.br/

All pictures I did for Smack! magazine were done with this camera. The site is in portuguese, but I believe it is straight forward enough to navigate without the text.
26  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Zippers versus Magnetic Snaps on: March 11, 2006 06:48:45 AM
I have commited myself to never buying another purse with a magnectic closure.

The "magnetic field" on a magnet that small will barely even effect an electronic item. Smiley

I've had trouble with magnectic cards for bus and bank and also lost (long time ago) a couple of floppy disks.

In Brazil we have a very serious culture of self-service on banks. The good part is that you almost never stand in line, the bad is that if your card has some kind of trouble it's a big headache.

For electronic equipament, like a mp3 player, a electronic diary or whatever, the magnetic field is too small to be of any importance. Smiley

I have commited myself to never buying another purse with a magnectic closure.

I just carry too many cards and gizmos that cannot stand magnectic fields. So I only consider buying a puse that has a zipper.

Open totes are still a mistery to me as to their utility. I would not even think about carrying a bag open, not only I make the burglars job too easy but I can get my stuff wet when it rains. It rains here every single day in summer.

Just a consumer's view. Smiley
28  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Basic requirements for a simple sewing machine on: March 10, 2006 07:14:50 AM
Thanks a lot.

The machine was selling for 150 reais, but the guy lowered it to 90 when I showed him it was making a mess of the bobin thread.

I'll take a look at Primeria Mo.

The top section seems to be a separate part. You might find a dress pretty much like this from the 80's on thrift stores or a similar pattern.

It however doesn't seem very simple - structured + bubble skirt + plaid used in an unusual way - so, if you are a begginer, it might turn out too complicated.
