21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Beadage.Net on: March 19, 2005 01:28:15 PM

This is a really great beading site. Does anyone know of any others like it? It's great for people who know nothing about making jewelery, as it explains EVERYTHING about making pieces. I only wish it had more tutorials.
22  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / TV Shows--We NEED This!! on: March 10, 2005 02:11:13 PM
Why isn't there a TV Shows board under the REVIEWS, RECOMMENDATIONS, DISSUASIONS? I mean, Craft Corner Death Match, Brini Maxwell, Crafters Coast to Coast, and even Martha Steward Living are very inspirational. We've all seen them-- why can't we discuss them? I'm surprised this board isn't there!
23  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Altered Valentine Cards on: March 09, 2005 05:41:13 PM
Yes, I know Valentine's Day has been over for almost a month, but I took this pics and didn't put them up yet. Here they are!

The one on the left was for my friend Cate. It says "Key to a Heart" and has a key sticker with a piece of red hemp tied around the hole. It's a post card, really, my message is on the back. Erica's is on the right. It says "UR" and the faucet sticker says "HOT." She loved it, lol. It's a post card, too.

This one has a sticker with the meaning of love on mulberry paper. Another post card.

I hope this gives you ideas! I hated the typical valentine and wanted to be different.
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / AOLTin Turned Hide-Away on: March 09, 2005 05:30:35 PM

I finally got one of those infamous AOL tins! I decorated the front of it and then wondered what to do with it. So, I hammered the back part into my wall and then slid on the cover. So basically, it makes a little "secret hiding place" where I can put small slips of paper (maybe combinations to my locks or something), small amounts of money (vacation fund), etc. Here it is with a Listerine Pocket Pack and a Girl Scout patch. They were on my dresser...

And here it is amoung my other wall things. It looks like an innocent piece of art. Ha!

This could be done with bigger tins, too!
25  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Altered Books on: March 07, 2005 09:17:42 AM
Hey, has anyone else noticed how many people on here post altered books? They're all over the place in different places: holidays, paper crafts, scrapbooking... I think they need one place for all of them. Does anyone else agree?
26  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / I Got A Sewing Machine for Xmas... What Now? on: December 26, 2004 05:16:58 PM
For Christmas, I got a sewing machine! It's a Necchi 3577 and it's a great machine. I don't need help usingit or anything... the place my mom bought it said they'd show me all the features if I call ahead and stop by their store. When I opened my stocking, I found a $25.00 gift card to Jo-Ann Fabrics. I don't plan on spending ALL that cash on fabric (though I admit that may happen...  Embarrassed). I want to leave the store with all the basic things I need. Here's what I plan to get:

But what else? If any savvy sewers could tell me some tools I need to start sewing, that would be great. Thanks!
27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Butter-Making it and Shaping it on: December 02, 2004 02:56:08 PM
In science class, we made butter as part of an experiment. Making the butter reminded me of how when you go to fancy resturants, the serve you little dishes of butter shaped as flowers, shells, etc. I went home, melted some butter in a dish, poured it into my mom's chocolate molds, and froze it for about ten minutes. When I tried to pop the butter out of the molds, they came out in pieces. As I type this, I have a new batch in the freezer. I plan on leaving them in longer. Has anyone tried this/have any suggestions? Thanks!
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Candy Cane X-Mas Mouse- Easy and Quick! on: December 02, 2004 02:37:58 PM
My friend makes these mice and gives one a day to people during December to remind her that Christmas is about giving, too. I think it's adorable. Not only is it a good way to use up extra fabric scraps, but they'd look cute on a tree and young kids could make them easily. Basically, she cut two pieces of fabric (see the bottom pic), made slits in the "body" and added the "ears." The candy cane becomes the "tail."

It remindes me of the sugar mice given to little kids at Christmas time during the Victorian Era. These mice add a modern twist to that old tradition.

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Channukah Dreidle Magnets! on: December 02, 2004 02:17:22 PM
Please excuse my spelling as I am not Jewish and do not celebrate Channukah.

I made a set of Dreidle magnets for someone I know who is Jewish. I bought a package with 4 dreidles in them and glued magnets to different sides so a different symbol showed up for each magnet. They turned out cute and I even thought of keeping one for myself! Haha.

Just thought I'd share, since I know there are VERY few Channukah decorations on the market.

OOPS! I forgot the picture! Duh.

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / 1970s Reader's Digest "Crafts and Hobbies?" on: December 01, 2004 01:25:17 PM
This book is really cool. It was my moms in the eighties. It explains macrame, tie dye, batik, leater working, book binding, pottery, origami, drawing,weaving, basketry, mosiac work, woodworking, floral arrangement, etc, etc. Imagine my surprise when I see it's still in print!


It's great if you want to learn a new skill and want to make a few projects. The pictures are great, too.
