1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / The Dorm Dilemma - all rules that could possibly apply, do. :( on: November 23, 2004 08:18:22 PM

Well next year I will be off at college and I know the rooms are not very fun/cozy Undecided... so I was wondering if anyone could give me fun/cute ideas to do for a dorm room.  Stuff to put on the walls or cun things to make that we could use but also not take up to much space.... well if anyone could help me out on this I would love it! thanks a lot

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Dropping a class ... picking up crafty goodness if i can make up my mind on: September 04, 2004 02:13:21 PM
Well I am going to be dropping a class (during drop week) and have narrowed my new corse selection down to two.

A)Home Crafts- students will learn a variety of craft skills that are subject to change with trends. Current projects include counted cross-stich  wall hangings, potpourri pies, strip quilted cats, padded photo frames/albums, pillows, muslin snowmen, and papertwist angels. Optional projects include stenciling, wood painting and finishing, and many holiday gifts and decorations. Students each complete a major craft project which is worked on a weekly basis throughout the semister.

B)Crafts as a buisness- This course offers and oppertunity to use your craft skills with an enterpreprenerial flair. Craft projects requiring a variety of skills and techniques will be completed as determined by students and instructor.  The "twist" to this corse is that students will set ip and run a "craft community"  within the class, including the planning, producing, and profitable selling of handmade crafts. Students will learn many hands-on craft skills as well as employability skills.

I am torn between the two  Undecided, any sugesstions or comments
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Folder and notebook on: August 21, 2004 04:21:52 PM


Well I was seeing all of these schhol related projects ... and well since school is starting in a week i just decided to spiff up a few things. The first one is Spac that says "Stop in the name of love".   And the second one was going to be Scarlett(Vivian Leia) from Gone With the Wind (the best book ever made!) But the paint was too runny and now she looks like the devil. o-well.

The second picture is the back of the Spac notebook, which says "Before you break my heart"

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / Poem Bookmark on: July 03, 2004 08:47:44 PM

What I did for my mother last year was make her a bookmark because she is always reading. I just made up a quick poem and glued it on some thicker paper (lared two differnt colors) , took a hole punch to it, and added a little string thing to the top(which could be substituted with ribbon) and wham bam thank you mam your done

P.S. I put the bookmark inside of a book that I bought her, kind of a 2 in one present.

But my mom being the sentimental girl that she is, photo copied it and uses the pohto copy as a bookmark because she says that she dosent want to ruin the orignial, and she said that she might even frame it ... sigh ... well thats parents for you

I got one of these blankets for Christmas last year or the year before.
It's really easy, all it is, is material cut and tied together, I think mine is

I got this from my Aunt:

I made this one:

Me trying to show you how I cut and tied:

All you do is lay both fabrics ontop of eachother and
cut slits on the side and tie them together.

Sorry about the bad pictures and if this is confusing  Tongue
