1251  UNITED STATES / New Jersey / Re: Craft stores in south central Jersey on: July 29, 2006 09:37:40 PM
For beading work try The Birds and the Beads in Matawan. It used to be in Colts Neck and moved north 1 1/2 yrs ago. Boo-Hoo! But it is a great place for any supplies for jewlry making or beading arts. They run classes and give great advice. Those ladies know their stuff. I live 1/2 block from the Michael's in Howell and I still drive up there to get special beads if I am making myself something special to wear and want to embellish it.

 Cool Very cool! It is so simple- yet very sophisticated at the same time. People in Manhaatan would pay a fotune for a piece of "art" like that!

You can have a rubber stamp made to read whatever you want. Stores like Staples or Office Max usually have them to order. If you don't want to go that route you can have clear labels printed to adhere to the tags. If you really want to you can silkscreen them- it's a lot of work for something that small- but if you have the supplies it does go quickly once you make the screen. Last but not least there is always the Calligraphy markers to make your own fancy tag with.

I agree with Karen Dawn- you must use Staz-on if you want to stamp right onto the tin. There are other brands of permanent stamping ink- but Staz-on is definitely the best. As to directly stamping on the tin- this requires practice if you are using any stamps that have to be rolled around the surface for coverage. You can practice with a pigment ink pad- just wash it off before the final stamping. Another way to practice rolling the stamps is to place a piece of plain paper, cut to fit the can, around the can and stamp on it till you are comfortable. Remember, permanent inks are just that- so practice first. I myself could never get a good image, maybe from being left-handed?, but I now stamp on cardstock and cut and paste them onto my tins. Works for me. Have fun with them.  Patti M

Well, "going to the shore" is a very NJ thing to say- are you talking about the Jersey Shore (the area I live in) or the shore in MD.
It doesn't matter really- just curious. As to beach crafting I have seen greeting cards and postcards made from menus from local popular restaurants, coasters from bars and taverns, and headlines from local papers. Worth a shot.

Coasters can be made from any material you can think of, but keep in mind that not all materials have the same absorbency. There is nothing more annoying than a glass sliding around in a puddle on a coaster that just lets the water sit on top. This can be a problem with cd cases, as fellow crafters have found out. I recommend buying some inexpensive, thick cork tiles at a place like home depot or Lowe's and cutting them into whatever shapes you want. They can be painted, fabric backed, dyed, sewn, or decorated in any assortment of styles. while still being absorbent.

This is one of the most beautiful homages I have seen in awhile. As it comes from your heart it is doubly valuable. I am also a "goy" from NY who grew up in the generation right after the war. (I am going on 50-not all crafsters are young- just all hip!) and I know how important remembering these horrific events are. I think it is extra special that you made these stars in gold felt as that was the color the Juden were forced to wear to show their status as "outcasts". Excellent job, and thank you for trying to get a new generation to care! Well Done!

Have some fun with them. Buys some fabric paint pens in wild colors that coordinate with the pinlk and find a funky retro 50's kind of pattern and paint away!! If you stick to shades of blue and purple it should be nice.

Great idea for the crafster fan- just make sure Leah doesn't sell one like it!
