They look very yummy.

When you bake with dark pans turn the oven down by 25 degrees and keep the baking time the same and everything you bake will be perfect!

I was going to suggest this as well. If you have a dark pan, turning down the oven temperature and baking items a little longer should make them turn out soft and chewy. Smiley

I really like the Elvis one! Do you still have that stencil? Would you mind sharing it?
Also, what brand of shirts are those? They look nice and long.

I love it! Cheesy I'm a very neat and organized person as well, and a lot of my journal looks like this too. And I love the whole punch page! I might try that one sometime because I find that sort of thing therapeutic as well.

I like using acrylic paint/textile medium too. Although I haven't tried fabric paint, I've just found the acrylics to work well. I really like the way her name turned out. And kudos for multi layers!

[I also love your icon - yay for Sufjan! Smiley]

I think there's a children's book that has a similar title...I remember learning how to make a simpler version in 4th grade after reading a book about papercranes and a girl and her grandmother.

Anyway, they're so much fun to make! Do you think you'll make them in all different sizes/colors?

I just remembered about the E6000 glue that I bought for other crafts...so I might try that as well.

Thanks for your suggestions!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Trouble with Fake Trees/Plants/Foliage... on: May 20, 2008 09:22:47 AM
First I'll give a brief summary of what's going on.

I'm working for my dad who owns a hotel. I've been doing a lot of maintenance and menial work since we haven't been very busy at all. [Hopefully things will pick up in the summer] One of my jobs was to fix up the fake trees/plants on the 4th floor where the pool is.

We have about 10 fake trees around the pool that seem to think autumn has struck and decided to shed their leaves. I've tried hot gluing the salvageable ones back on and fluffing them up a bit, but they're shot. The hot glue only melts the plastic causing even more leaves/branches to fall off.

My question for you guys is...is there a good type of glue out there that doesn't have to get so hot, that will stick quite quickly?
How about maintenance and care...they're in a humid environment that gets lots of sun, which cause them to fade and get brittle.

Or, have any of you been to any stores where there are cheap[er] fake plants? ['Cause I know that most likely these trees will look pretty pathetic even after I've fixed them up a bit. Wink] My dad just doesn't want to spend too much on fake plants, even though they really do spruce up the place a bit.

I wish I had a picture of the tree I started to work on...it looks so sad. LOL!  Smiley

[In case you're interested, here's a link to the hotel's website which is being renovated, so it's pretty plain right now. My other task is to take new pictures of everything for the site, which I'm excited about. Smiley]
