You are like some kind of wonderful crafting wizard.
142  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: record label coasters on: January 28, 2007 11:30:50 PM
I'm not sure if this as been said, however, when I made my set I put the record in the oven like a record bowl and then just cut it out. I did a really fast cut first to cut off most of the record then melted it again and did the fine tuning. (Tuning hahaha)

They turned out very well. I suppose you could sand down the edges but I like the crafted look. I also though about making an exacto knife cut around a circle template to get a more even look, but mine didnt turn out too badly.

I've been eyeing those decals as well. I am worried that working with contact paper will chip the paint or damage the walls when it is torn down. I do not have any other ideas.

Whattheblik.com offers a wide range and varying prices. I really love the resticks.

Best of luck.

This is awesome! It looks great! If you like it you should stick with it!

A good friend of mine started randomly painting her bedroom wall whenever the mood struck her. A few month later she had a great looking wall. It took awhile but in the end it was something she really loved.

Best of luck!

It is so rockin that you have your own space now! Congrats.

I always find organizing my crafty stuff seems the hardest! I mostly use varying sizes of plastic bins. One hint that I always keep in mind with using plastic containers for craft stuff is to make sure they are not too big or too small. A huge tote for your paint will just become overwhelming, however a smaller one for paint, and another for brushes could help. Also I always buy clear, see-though containers!

For your beads maybe you could split them up in to colors and put them in cleaned out baby food containers. I am sort of invisioning what you could do with all of these containers. Maybe put magnets on the tops of the lids and hang a piece of metal (or large metal ruler) to put the jars on. I think it could work, plus it might look kind of nice to see all of the colors and it would be an easy way to see if you have the beads you need for a certain project.

When I have a work space I like to keep all of my pencils in a cup, and all of my brushes in another. This helps me too know when I am getting too much stuff.

Maybe during the move you could sort out all of the stuff you haven't used or old stuff you can't use and get rid of it. I always find it so hard to let go of craft stuff, but when I do it is always better in the long run.

Is there a closet in the space? That could be a huge plus if there is any shelves. Currently all of my craft stuff is confinded to a "linen" closet. All of my stuff fits perfectly in it and it leaves my room open for alot of crafting.

Good luck!

I agree that a piece of steel might be more effective. It could be a great opportunity to introduce other pieces as well, like storage baskets or key holders. 

Another idea for rings could be embroidery hoops. They can be found really cheap at yard sales or on ebay and have many shapes (and they are paintable).

Then you might even be able to find pieces of art to fit inside. Your local craft store might have the Sewable canvas (small sizes run about $2-4) which look like pieces of fabric, you could tranfer images on to them or paint your own. Those images too could be easily changed. I have used the embroidery hoops with this kind of canvas instead of frames, it is cheap and easy.

Good luck.
