I recently painted some 'vines' on the outside of my umbrella to make it more interesting (it's a boring yellow-beige) with acrylic paint. So far it's been great with opening and closing it, but I have yet to test it in the rain.

I would think if you painted the inside, then did a layer of waterproofing spray on the outside as an extra precaution, it should work.

34  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Building a better bra on: September 10, 2006 05:22:22 AM
I'm a 46 H. Oi. I was thinking for a long time about making my own bras but after realizing that 1. there aren't patterns in my cup size and 2. there's very little room for error in sewing bras, I'm going with the store bought stuff.

I have to second, third? the bra fitting recommendation. All my bras are 44 DD because that's what I could find and stuff myself into. Then I saw an awesome documentary on large breasts and they sent the women for fittings to a toronto store -- Secrets from your sister. The difference between "what I can find and afford" and fitted bras was amazing, mind-boggling. So last month I headed out to Secrets and got fitted. The saleswoman (Fawna) was fabulous, and not only found me a well fitting bra, she taught me what to look for in a well fitting bra.

I really think that going to a store like Secrets and getting fitted should be the first step in figuring out how to deal with building a better bra. I mean, what's the point in making a bra that matches the other bras you may have that most likely don't fit?

looks ok to me. maybe it's just the colors that bother you. you know you can change the colors (where your green is) in your profile?

If you mean changing themes, that doesn't change the problem areas for me. Which is specifically the contrast level between text and background on posts.

I should note that this is not a huge thing for me -- I'm adding information to the pile, which Leah requested. Thanks.

I find it a bit harder to read as well. Mainly my issues are in the background colours and fonts -- not enough contrast. The menus others have commented on blur for me because of the all caps and size of the font.


Er, how about a link to the screenshot instead since it resizes it wonky. here!

I'm in Canada as well and it works the same here as far as I know. I try not to overuse the list though. The benefit of living in an apartment building with a bunch of university students is they completely ignore the flyers, so when the michael's ad comes around I have a good dozen if I want 'em.

38  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Yarn Swap - anyone interested on: September 08, 2006 12:45:08 PM
As organizer of the summer fabric swap, I really recommend that you don't plan a round for more than a month at a time. The only reason we did the summer long one was because it was going to be a slower swap, the original and successful model is monthly. Even so the time commitment is high for the organizer and when you do it for 2 months plus you hit a point where seeing another PM, sending out another reminder to communicate, having to unstall the swap another time makes you want to stab yourself with a spork.

My problem is with the new button in bookmarks, specifically. New works in replies to my posts, unread posts since last visit, but does not work in the bookmarks area.
40  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: When to Start Feedback? on: September 08, 2006 04:23:49 AM
With the new swap rules (specifically the 5 swap limit) I add in progress to people's profiles as soon as they are approved. I can't see it working any other way honestly, since adding at the end of the sign-up period would allow someone to easily slide past the 5 swaps rule if they're devious enough.

On the flip side of that though, I also give postive feedback once their partners have received even if it's well before the end of the swap, so the swapper can move on to other swaps as soon as possible. That doesn't work in an ongoing, but it's doing great in the standard swap I'm running.
