1  Ohio / Ohio: Southwest / I <3 Over the Rhine on: October 19, 2007 12:17:20 PM
I'm just curious as to how many Craftsters have visited OTR and seen all the artwork in the community. What was your favorite area? I personally liked the murals on the Peaslee Center and Imagination Allie. After visiting OTR for a service project with a theatre group, I've totally changed my views on the area. Also, there is a really cool group called Ink Tank http://inktank.blogharbor.com/which  works with local authors and sells books only by locals. It was a really nifty place I think many Craftsters would appreciate! I'd really like to hear your input!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Three costume ideas on: July 29, 2007 01:24:04 AM
I just had a brain blast while searching this forum.
1.What about dressing in all blue and double stick taping feminine products/adds for companies such as always, tampax, playtex on your person? Add a paint brush and pallet and you're Picasso's Blue Period. Is this too icky?
2. Buy an inexpensive picture frame at least six inches larger than our face. Make a copy (print, paint, stencil, draw, embroider, etc) of the Mona Lisa. Cut her face out and place the picture in the frame and omit the backing. Glue a strip of elastic to the frame to secure the picture. Place your head in the hole, wear all black, carry a paint brush and pallet, and your The Mona (insert your name here). you could most likely do this with other famous paintings/photographs such as The Scream, etc.
3. You know how PETA protests people wearing fur by throwing tomatoes at them? Well one could wear a fake fur coat and an anti-PETA shirt. (I'm sure there's one out there or one could make one.) Use red face paint to put tomato splotches all over his or her person and fabric paint to make splotches on his or her shirt and other articles of slothing.

What do you think?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Help! Musical bathroom decor! on: July 22, 2007 07:53:18 PM
So I'm re-doing my bathroom. I spent all day stripping ugly floral wall paper off the walls. I want it to be a musical theater themed bathroom, but I need ideas for decoration. I'm thinking of using New York City themed items as well. I've already decided there's going to be a small, inexpensive chandelier over the toilet (a la Phantom of the Opera). Any ideas? Thanks a bunch!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Hand Made Birthday Card (Image Heavy) on: July 20, 2007 11:04:33 PM
I made this for my friend's sweet sixteen. It has two layers. I used card stock, origami paper, sandpaper, and transparencies for overhead projectors. I also used stickers for the letters.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Five headbands in one! (picture heavy) on: July 20, 2007 10:49:18 PM
I thought to myself: "Why buy a headband for each outfit when I can make one for each and still only need one headband AND recycle at the same time?"

Plain plastic headband from Target:

I sewed tubes or sleeves to go over the plain headband. I used scrap fabric, old ribbon, and pajamas I rescued from the Goodwill bag which my mom keeps hiding from me.

The sleeves on the headband:

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My barrettes were too boring! (un poco foto gordo) on: July 20, 2007 10:39:20 PM
So, I bought these barrettes at Target and they were so boring. I only had twenty minuets before I had to leave for a party. What was a crafty girl to do?

All of them together:

I just super-glued scraps of ribbon, googly eyes, buttons, and rhinestones on the clips and I was ready to go!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Unique Scrap Scarf for my best friend's sweet 16 on: July 20, 2007 10:32:22 PM
What do you get for a bright and cheery environmentally conscious best friend who's always cold for her sweet sixteen? You knit her a scarf made from all those stubborn scraps of fabric you can't seem to use! (I made my little brother model it!)

All I did was tie fairly long and thin scraps of fabric, ribbon, and even Christmas garland*, plastic streamers*, and caution tape together*. I knitted using size 17 needles and only seven stitches. A gauge is not necessary because the differences in materials causes it to be uneven. Don't worry if it is lumpy or uneven. This makes every scarf different and gives it some personality! I tried to make a pattern, but one could not see the difference in stitches.

*I only used these materials at the ends of the scarf because I did not want the scarf to be to itchy or to poke her neck.
