really love what you did to the black ribbon, it gives it a nice shape,and the bead in the flower does look cute Smiley just hate seeing such blown up prices on such simple to make things. 10 bucks! that's an outrage.

Smiley that is really unique, i sure agree with everyone you found to show it off Smiley
a tute would be great even though i wouldn't have time in the near future to sew more project than the few ones i've already planned on (not sure i'll get to them either.. leaving home in half a month and just too much things planned to do..) Sad

hi again. on to the replys.. Cheesy

stashia- thanks a lot for your kind words, im really flattered. well, i worked really hard on it, we stayed at our school's art workshop (there's a better word for it in hebrew.. too bad i don't know english that well) a LOT more hours than we get as part of the art expansion (4 weekly hours for the workshop and 3 for history of art lessons.. haha, as if we could do something with 4 pathetic hours in one school year). we stayed at school till the late hours of the night (think i broke the all time records several times with 2:30 and 3 am.. starting the day with 8 hour regular school days that start at a quarter to 8.. am. my friend suggested we bring sleeping bags..  Cheesy), went there on vacations, and basicly every available and un-available hour, especially in the several weeks before the exhibition, when some people realized they need to start working, or else they'd have nothing to show.. (some didn't and really got on our teachers' nerves.)
It required a lot of sacrafice from our two truely amazing art teachers, we gave them a reallly hard time, and some of us (not me! not me!) even more. oh, and we were 21 kids in art.
other answers- here in Israel not all students go through the 12th grade (plus the social-economic state is just getting worse and going the wrong way in my opinion, too much capitalism and much less socialism..). i can get you the exact percents, but if i remember right it's about 50% that finish all their exams and get a 'teodat bagrut' (highschool-graduate-certificate thingy, don't know if you have that exact kind of thing in the states). it also depends on where your from, your school and stuff like that. i don't go to a special school for art, just my regular regional high school, but my area is known for it's high investments and there for accomplishments in education. i count myself as pretty lucky, there are a lot of neglected and malfunctioning areas so it's no surprise the graduate numbers are lower the past couple of decades.. Angry isn't it upsetting or what?
oh, i'm from the northern part of Israel, about 30 min. from Haifa, no way you've heard of Izrael Valley, right? i'm pretty sure your relatives haven't either.. lol.

friends are good things, ah? im glad you finally dragged yourself to the exam. i hate tension so much, i was really suffering from it too in 9th, 10th grade and 11th, this year it got a bit better.. blah, it's so horrible, i used to have nervous breakdowns and collapse with wierd day-dreams and not do some exams or delay them because of it... got my time extension in tests because of it. the only reason they didn't have to hospitalize me in an institution last year during the final exams was because i had a verrry calming boyfriend at that time that helped me get relaxed and get things in perspection . yey for friends, as i said before Smiley.

yep, i too did the renaissance section, and did the memorial statues because i was afraid to mess up the Frida Kahlo one. i too had no clue about the kennedy one, good thing i didn't choose it, i would have never guessed.. the people who did it went out of the exam and our teachers said that it symbolized and looked like a cut-down tree in the middle of a live forest! blah! no one who choose it thought of that.. bummer for them.

i'm not doing the second exam in math since i got a nice grade (87!!), and did the english exam early in the winter. so no more school for me . Cheesy Grin
next year i'll be learning a lot too and having my brain blown up in the shnat-shirot (voluntary year before the army with my youth group) with sociology, economics, philosophy, politics and all kinds of other stuff, but at least i won't have any more exams!!!! yeyyyyy.  Grin . plus i'll help little kids at school. hurray.  Smiley

oh, i just have to try and keep these replys a bit shorter next time Sad  i'm clogging the boards.. Roll Eyes i just love talking Tongue. sorry Undecided

Erika- thank you very much too  Smiley

25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Lip Balm Holder Keychain... on: July 10, 2004 04:26:10 PM
got my digi camera back from repair finally, so now i can start posting pics. yeyey!  Smiley

once again tnx Laamissa for the idea and pattern (mostly the idea since i modified the pattern to fit my yarn and lip balm..).

here's mine:

i altered the key chain to a crochet chain since didn't have time to go find one, plus i'm ok with just tying it to my jeans' belt-holding-thing Tongue .

maybe you should try crocheting it (in assumption that you know how), i've just learned (from various sites on the net, it's not that hard) and found out it's really fun improvising with it. you can at least do the bottom zig-zag thing, i think it should work out somehow. i can see it in my head, just don't know the terms that well yet, so i can't explain.. mmm.. maybe someone with more experience in crochet can help?

28  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: fun painted poster project on: July 06, 2004 05:16:27 PM
don't know about you guys but in my printer (hp deskjet 930c) setup (the window you get when you're gonna print) has a 'poster printing' in the 'Features' tab. it cuts atomaticly your document.. problem is it's a bit restricting: you can only do a 2*2, 3*3 or 4*4 poster.. an idea for making a bigger poster would be using kayray's cutting technique, but less- like having four huge pieces and printing each as a 4*4 poster...  hope you understood.. i think my explenation was a bit messy.. oops.
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Lip Balm Holder Keychain... on: July 05, 2004 06:33:40 PM
yey Smiley
tnx for the idea.. i always look for a place to put my lip balm when i don't wanna go out with a whole bag, then end up taking an almost useless bag or having my lips cracked all day long..
i'm in the middle of making one, and finishing in a few secs.. wait..
didn't think that the multipule colored yarn i bought (black white and bluish-grey) for a hat would look so great.. Smiley now i want to try making crochet mittens.. it looks really great as a thumb part of a mitten.. haha.
just gotta find a key chain and get my digi camera back. i'll post a pic as soon as i can

been a hectic month, sorry i'm repyling in such a delay..

first, Undecided : I see the pics are gone once again... photobucket doesn't seem to work great these past couple of months.. just when i thought i should start and use it..  Angry

that really cool. i wish i'd know 2 languages in a native tongue way. i know english pretty good since i lived in the u.s when i was little, but my english is still pretty much like of a 3rd grader's english.. as you might have already noticed.. "Word"'s dictionary helps a lot when you forget certain words Cheesy.

thanks a lot Cheesy it's so cool u'r learning hebrew! when r u planning on visiting here? in some kind of group or by yourself? i can recommend  some cool museums and galleries you can visit if you want Smiley there's a great museum i just love in Hertzelia, which is a city by Tel-Aviv. hope you find intresting people, but beware- you might be a bit intimidated by some, since people can get a bit rude, in u.s and europe terms that is.. as kukeit described a bit nicer- "israeli's are in your face kind of people" .. lol.  but we are very friendly and helping too, so don't worry we're kinda ok  Tongue .

thank you so much. i'm so very flattered  Roll Eyes . it so nice when i get to hear that people see and understand my work and stuff i wanted to pass on to the "tzophe" (lol talking in hoa language.. sorry..). lol i too love art that is unfinished, (one of my specialtese haha) (don't worry, didn't take it as an insult, it's ment to be so) i find it important in so many ways in my art, starting from obtaining the right balance in the work, trough another way of making some statments i want..  i'll stop the 'nituach avoda' (work analysis) too, too blabering in one paragraph  Tongue ...
i'd loove to see some of your stuff too Smiley
how did the exam go yesterday (oops already the day before yesterday..)? it went pretty awful for me Cry .. at least i got a good magen (95 ! yey).

gonna go check how to bring the photos back up.. byebye and have a great day  Smiley
