22  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: ONGOING WISH SWAP ROUND THREE- sign ups indefinate // SWAPPING STARTS NOW! on: November 19, 2005 02:45:37 PM
I'll make the earrings *the rest edited out, no longer relevant*Smiley

My list:

note: I'm in Australia
Ok, here is my list, and I will admit, it's in order of preference

#1 - A learn to tat kit. The idea of *funky* lace-making interests me, but beyond craftster I wouldn't know where to find someone to teach me funky stuff. Oh and I've never been able to find the materials either, lol.

#2 - Some funky way of organising my embroidery threads and supplies. I haven't embroidered in ages because all my threads are in a box, getting tangled up. The snaplock bag idea doesn't appeal to me, I just want something...different. funky. And some more colours. *grins*

#3 - Polymer/Sculpey/Fimo (whatever's the best) --> but ONLY if it's cheap for you. The smallest blocks cost us about $5 per colour, and I don't have a credit card to buy online, so I don't want anyone to go buying it and spending as much as I would!

#4 - A diary/organiser for next year - preferably handmade, or at least hand-decorated. I do get a uni one, but I like being different! I would love one of those organiser things with diary space (like 1-2 days per page), address book space, to do list etc. Nothing too hugs though. A5 max (when closed) for pages - so I can fit it in all my bags. Oh, but remember we write our dates "day/month", not the other way around! Ah, this sounds tricky! If you choose it, PM me to clarify anything, save space here!

#5 - And the old faithful last resort SmileyCraft supplies. I don't sew, and have way too much wool for the minimal crochet/knit I can do, so supplies could include: beads (not seed beads), and charms, stickers, nice papers, felt, jewellery fixtures, other useful random crafts supplies. Nothing religious/christmassy please.

Hope that's enough. I'll try to think of more if I need to...

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: After Many pricks in the hand I have concluded I cannot make a skirt! on: November 19, 2005 01:05:51 AM
I'm in the same situation and to be honest, I just have a big rectangle of patterned fabric (patters=slimming:)) which I'll wrap around myself and tuck into the waistband of my jeans. Simple, easy, yet I get SO my compliments on my "gorgeous skirt"
24  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Need help for gift for a friend who has everything! on: November 14, 2005 10:11:59 PM
OMG I love the jelly bean idea - would it work with little jelly beans not cut in half? how big was the pic? how many jelly beans? was it laquered/protected? getting some 21st ideas!
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: grrrr :( on: November 14, 2005 10:09:28 PM
what swap was it? and where do you live (country)? you might be able to "pick up" a random swap angel (if I can help, I will!). As for the swapper in question, I'd just PM the swap board organisers and make it clear what's happened. Keep any PM-s you've got from them as proof. Sorry about your bad experience!

absolutely ADORABLE
everyone will love it!
27  COOKING / Dessert / Re: cake and icing from scratch?? on: November 09, 2005 05:28:37 PM
can't help with the icing but:

1C SR flour
1C sugar
125g butter
1/2C milk (or 1/4C milk, 1/4C rum)
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla

Whack it all in a mixer/beater/make-making-machine-thing/whatever you call it and beat on HIGH for 3min. Bake at 180C for 50min

So quick. SO easy.

Add 2 heaped tbsp cocoa for chcoccie cake.
Split the mix and add 1tbsp cornflour to one half, 1 tbsp cocoa to the other for marble
Add orange juice instead of milk for an orange cake, with a handful of nuts etc

29  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / HELP! I need food for kids to cook on: November 06, 2005 02:32:36 AM
I work in after-school care and the kids love doing a cookie activity!
The problem is, I'm running out of ideas!
I need simple recipes where kids can help make as much as possible.
Something different than chocolate crackles and honey joys would be appreciated!
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: clock kits? on: November 05, 2005 02:03:16 AM
I don't know where you are, but this is my Australia experience:
Don't buy a cheap clock to rip up, many are glued and stuck in stupid ways so once they die, they're dead. No fixing.
Some craft stores have, ask around.
Electronics shops have! My dad's an electronics teacher so he took me to a shop when I needed one. They will also probably be more helpful than a craft store (ie more expert knowledge)
