1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Painting game miniatures - a good starter kit? on: September 17, 2007 07:22:43 PM
Hello all.  I'm hoping that someone around here is into painting miniatures and can give me some advice.  My husband wants to get into painting miniatures for his games, and his birthday is in a couple of weeks.  I thought I would get him a starter kit, but holy moly.... I am totally overwhelmed at the choices of brands, colors, brushes, foundations, primers, files...lost. 
So if you could recommend me a good starter set (hopefully from the U.S., so I could have it arrive by Oct. 3!) I would be eternally grateful.  And I would give you mental cookies.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Far Far Away - my first book in years on: September 04, 2007 08:20:35 PM
Hey everyone! I took a bookmaking class back in 2002 and just decided to make a few now to see if they'd be worth selling.  (Not a veiled attempt to sell - I haven't even opened the store yet!)  So this is my first real book in years, a kind of trial.  Just need that ever-popular craftster encouragement that my binding skills won't always suck. Smiley

I gave up on the inside design and just glued some little knots from the scrap paper in here:

Huzzah! I'm on my way to making decent books again. Thanks for looking! 
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do I attach buttons after I finish? *so embarrassing* on: April 05, 2007 05:06:10 PM
oKay, this is such a stupid question that I couldn't even find it in a search. I'm knitting a baby sweater and the instructions say to attach the buttons after it's all completed.  How do I do it well?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know how to make wall decals? on: January 21, 2007 12:53:01 PM
(Sorry if this has already been asked - the search isn't working)

I was looking over at urban outfitters and they have really cute but really expensive wall decals. Does anyone know if these can be made on the cheap?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Picking up a stitch at a gusset - help? on: December 20, 2006 08:15:31 PM
I'm knitting some gloves and for the first time I have actually increased for a thumb gusset.  So now I have these stitches on my needle, waiting to be turned into a thumb.  I am supposed to pick up a stitch at the top of the thumbhole, but whenever I do this I still have a gaping hole on either side of the picked-up stitch - it doesn't close up for a thumb at all.  Am I making any sense? Can anyone offer me some insight?
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Woodland Fairy Fantasy on: November 01, 2006 02:32:08 PM
Hello everyone! Great costumes, this challenge is so much fun.  Here's my contribution:

It doubled as my Renaissance Fair costume...

The wings are handmade, though not by me:

The top is two shirts sewn together and embellished with embroidery thread (all my sewing was by hand b/c my machine is broken)
It's a corset top with a sheer flowery shirt over it:

And so.  The skirt and belt are mine, but I made the other pouch to hang on the belt out of extra shirt fabric. 
I made my little shrug by chopping off the sleeves and neck of the top and embellishing it again with embroidery thread - it looks like it has sort of primitive stitches, that sort of thing.  I painted my pointy ears to match my real ears and got many compliments. Smiley
