11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / *Really* Large Digital Scrapping? on: June 04, 2007 06:47:10 PM
Hi all!

I'm hoping you can help me figure something out. I was asked to make a family tree chart for the family reunion because I'm the big crafter in the family (aside from Mom, but she only sews LOL).

Anyway, I was thinking of doing a 24" x 36" chart (basically text boxes with lines connecting them) and then scrapping photos into it, kind of like a page layout.

My only problem is, the only program I've found that can make a page that size is Photoshop and that's too darn complicated to try and do so much text!

Is there any other program that can do it? I've tried Pagemaker, Word, Powerpoint, Corel Draw...

Thanks guys! I really appreciate any help you can give me!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / (mostly) Knit afghan squares are done!!! on: May 07, 2007 04:20:08 PM
I just had to post here, since I had posted all over about these *^(*^(* afghan squares LOL.

They're done and out in the mail today for my Yahoo Group exchange.

Thank god!

If you want to see them, they're in my flickr set:


They're almost all knitted - a few crocheted and a few loom knitted.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Unique and Interesting Yarn? on: May 05, 2007 07:21:49 PM
Hi all!

I got a sneak peek at my birthday gift at Yarnover a couple weeks ago (its a package with a couple balls of that totally awesome Be Sweet yarn).

Anyway, I was psyched until I thought of...what am I going to get my best friend for HER birthday since she's getting this cool yarn for my birthday?

Any suggestions on a unique and cool yarn that might be equivalent in the price range of the Be Sweet yarns?

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / New to crochet - Super Easy 8" squares? on: March 28, 2007 01:45:02 PM

I just learned to crochet a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be a nice variant to crochet some of the 8" squares I'm doing for an afghan exchange.

I looked at the "granny" squares, but there really don't seem to be any patterns with videos or lots, lots, lots of pictures for someone very new to crochet.

I know how to do a double crochet, single crochet and a half double crochet. Anything else is currently beyond me.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or sites to find a slow moving granny square video?  Wink


15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Marty Rocks! on: March 25, 2007 12:48:36 PM
Hi all!

This is my little air freshener that hangs inside of my car. His name is Marty. Marty ran out of little balls to eat to freshen my car's smell.

We searched for them, and found the company that made Marty went out of business. We tried sprays, rolls, but nothing worked until a friendly fellow craftster suggested the fragrant rocks at craftbits.com.

So without further ado, Marty Rocks:

Flour, salt, and a half teaspoon of lime essential oil (double the craftbits recipe).

Marty is now back to being a happy little air freshener, and I've got a rockin' car that smells like limes! Smiley

16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first "fun" project - Cell Phone Holder on: March 24, 2007 11:11:29 PM
Hi all!

I learned to crochet last Saturday at the Stitching Salon in Chicago (not a store, a thingy by the city of Chicago). After trying a bazillion times, this time it stuck! Smiley

Anyway, I've made a few afghan squares for an exchange but I was bored with doing them today and decided to make a project just for me, a new cell phone holder.

Let me know what you think! This is my stuffed bunny Flippity holding it, since its going with my Easter stuff.

Crocheting rocks! Its just as fun as knitting and easier on my wrists Smiley
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Trellis cable pattern? Help finding it... on: March 14, 2007 04:02:15 PM
Hi all!

Since my husband lost his job, I can't afford $73 for a purse kit just to purchase the cable design (that I want to use on a skirt anyway).

Does anyone recognize it?


I could afford a book or booklet, but geez...$73 is a lot of money. If anyone knows of a similar one, I'd really appreciate it.

18  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / creating car air freshener balls? on: December 26, 2006 09:23:24 PM
Hi all!

I wasn't sure just what forum to post under, but I have a dilemma.

I have a cute little stuffed bear as my air freshener in my car. He uses little balls that are scented to freshen the air as it comes out of my car vents.

My problem is that the company that makes the balls went out of business and I want to keep my cute little friend!

The only thing I've thought of so far that might work and be able to withstand the high heat of the car during the summer is those cinnamon-applesauce dough balls that every kid seems to make at Christmas every year.

Any other ideas? I'd sure appreciate it.


19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 1 Cable Mittens like C.P.'s Mikado Fingerless Gloves? on: December 01, 2006 11:08:53 PM

I saw this great Crystal Palace pattern online: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/mikado-gloves.html.

I want to do a pair of mittens like that. Does anyone know of a pattern somewhere? I don't really care about the cable pattern, I just like the look of the one cable throughout.

I would try to freeform it or do it on my loom, but I'm itching to try and learn cabling on the needles and want something simple to do.


20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Extremely Dry Skin - Good Recipe for Lotion? on: November 22, 2006 11:31:16 PM
Hi all!

so I'm making my mom some M&P milk and honey soap to help her with her extremely overdried skin during the winter.

But, I was noticing that she had such dry skin it was cracking during the day, and was wondering if anyone knows of a good lotion recipe or kit so I can help her with it for after her work? She's a cafeteria lady and the soap they use to keep things hygenic is what dries out her skin so badly.
