I know you can get pyrite chips/flakes packaged in tiny bottles filled with water, so that the pyrite swirls around inside. I've seen these for sale at a few different places, though I can't remember exactly where. If you have a science/education-themed store (e.g., the Discovery Store, World of Science) in your area, you could try there. Or since you're already going to be checking on eBay, you could just search for bottled pyrite....

Good luck! Smiley

You could buy (probably at Home Depot or the like) and paint long wooden dowels -- one to run along the top, and the other across the bottom. You could probably attach them with heavy-duty glue or a staple gun. The effect I'm picturing is the way some posters are hung -- usually by a string attached to each end of the top dowel. Sort of like this:

Why do people do this, anyway? Is it the cyberspace version of the infamous trenchcoat-clad flasher in the park? The answer could be some graduate student's psychology thesis....

I don't know how other copyrights work, but I know a tiny bit about literary copyrights....

A few months ago, I attended a sci-fi/anime convention at Smith College. One of the panels dealt with fanfiction. A lot of people were surprised that fanfic violates copyright even though it's making no money. The problem is that, if an author allows his/her characters to be used by others, this could cost him/her the copyright: it's as if the author is relinquishing ownership.

Is there room for bumper stickers? I'm thinking: "My other car's a Harley." Or something personalized, like: "This scooter climbed Mt. Snowdon." (I've had personalized stickers made at www.makestickers.com -- though I don't know where they ship.)

I love the above hood-ornament idea. And if that cowcatcher is feasible....

Good luck!

How about handpainting pewter miniatures? I don't play Warhammer, but sometimes I'm tempted to buy some figurines (at comic/gaming shops) to paint, just for the heck of it. The paint jars are small, as are the miniatures (being miniatures!), so this hobby wouldn't take up too much room.

Cutting boards: drill/nail a hole by which to hang it; decorate one side (paint, decoupage, etc.); varnish/seal the artwork; present to your favorite family chef.

Shadowboxes: 10x10 is a decent size for a shadowbox...though this would require more would to be used in the frame.

Boxes: nail them together to make square boxes...though this would require a bit of trimming -- or getting additional 10.5x10.5 squares to use as the bottom and lid. (I hope that this makes sense. And that my arithmetic is right.) The boxes could then be decorated and used to store crafting supplies, toys, etc.

Bread boards: save them for the next medieval wedding?  Wink

Good luck!

I'm sorry for your loss.

My thought is to make sachets or little pillows (maybe heart-shaped) filled with spices or potpourri, or a favorite fragrance of hers. You could trim them with lace, or attach little notes (for her name, dates, or a quote or prayer) with ribbon.

Another possibility would be to use the fabric as matting for family photos. Or covering mini photo albums or memento boxes with the fabric.
