1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / cloth hanging (sweater) shelf on: January 13, 2009 08:19:08 AM
I had one of those space-saving sweater/jeans/clothes/whatever cloth 'shelves' that velcro around the top of the closet and has about 6 spaces for you to store....clothes, etc.  I've had it for about 4 years, and lo and behold, the other day it finally gave out and snapped.  All of the cloth pieces are still attached, which makes me think I could still use it for storage (somehow?) but it won't re-attach to the closet for hanging anything.
Is there anything I could store in there, and most importantly...where would I put it?  It doesn't stand up on it's own, just kind of ....crumbles there.  I'd HATE to throw it away.  Help!?

Thanks.  Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / 'Dr. Who.' question on: January 02, 2009 08:00:37 PM
I know there have been a few 'Dr. Who.' type scarves floating around lately.  My question is....has anyone (who hasn't done the 'traditional' one, obviously) repeated a color, or have they used all different shades?  I'm debating if I should use different shades or if it would be 'ok' to repeat with the same yarn that I used, say, 2" back in the scarf. 

I don't quite think I own all of (enter cheap non dye lot yarn name here) colors yet, but I'm getting close.  If only I had a bigger storage unit than under my bed. Le sigh.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 10 monogrammed beer glasses on: September 20, 2008 10:53:34 PM
Long story short, I worked a party where the people brought monogrammed beer glasses (the glass wasn't etched in, it was like, glass in another glass)

They did almost $1200 and left us no tips.  So the owner offered the 3 of us that worked the extra beer glasses and food.  I'm going to go back and grab a bunch of the beer glasses before they can come back and get the extras (they have at least 60 extras)

Any crafts I can do with them?  Some of the other (legal) ideas we had were spitting in them and throwing them against trees (and then cleaning it up, of course).

The names won't scratch off, but I'd hate to see these glasses go to waste....and none of us are going to ever drink out of them, not after a night like we had.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / beginning knitting ? - need to make 6x6 squares on: September 05, 2008 08:14:55 PM
I need to make 6x6 squares for a project.  How do you measure them?  Most of them I'm planning on making on size 8 needles b/c of the yarn I'm using...how to measure it?

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / paper size question 8x8 but 12x12 is easier to find? on: June 18, 2008 08:11:29 AM
I like the look of 8x8, but 12x12 (or even 8 1/2x11) is easier to find.  There is a store devoted entirely to scrapbooking that only sells sheets in 12x12.  Michaels has a few 8x8 sheets but not that many.  I'm starting my first 'real' scrapbook (the others were just blank photo books that I sorta made into scrapbooks).

Should I return the 8x8 book I got and get a bigger one since the pages and everything are easier to find?  I got this size b/c the topic I'm doing it on is something memorable and sentimental to me and I want to be able to carry it around most places.
I thought about getting the 12x12 sheets and cutting them up, but I'm not really good at that and they turn out uneven  Undecided

Thanks for help and suggestions!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / want to start making own cards...questions and a card idea on: December 19, 2007 06:12:59 PM
I saw a package of blank (white, cardstock like) cards at Michaels, but I was sure I could find them cheaper/more than the pack of like, 4 that I saw. 

Where do you all buy your blank cards?

Second,  my bf just had a (minor) medical procedure done, involving a hospital stay and a sleep study.  Neither of us are the smushy/sappy kind, so I wanted to make him a card (along with this funny joke gift I got him)....and have the card say something about sleep...but I am SO not creative when it comes to that.
Any suggestions? 
Hopefully I'll be able to visit him tomorrow or the next day, but I'm going to try and have it all done tomorrow.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / my first crochet lesson! on: November 23, 2007 11:47:56 PM
My friend was trying to teach me how to crochet today, and I made a SUPER LONG (about 6 feet) single strand (for some reason, that is super easy, easier than knitting, which I never thought anything was easier than garter stitch).

I used Red Heart Super Saver in Pink Camo http://i19.tinypic.com/85f74pg.gif (picture doesn't do it justice).

Oh, and Michael's has a pretty decent yarn sale (Red heart, lion brand homespun, Caron One Pound for about $1ish/off).  Not sure how long it's lasting.  Maybe through Saturday/Sunday?

ps- if there is any way to get the picture to show up IN the post, please advise.  I know I have gotten it done before (through the help/use of Tinypic), I just can't seem to figure it out.  Maybe b/c it's almost 3am, who knows....

Anyway, am super excited that I (somewhat) learned to crochet, and as soon as I find my camera, will post a work in progress, as right now it's just a single strand. 
I don't know how to join the strands together.  My friend tried to show me, but it's a bit more difficult than a single strand.  My stitches were uber tight (similar to when I first started knitting), so if anyone has any suggestions...well, thanks!
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / storage? on: November 03, 2007 07:42:30 AM
I've just started scrapbooking, and I'm wondering where you all store your scrapbook pieces of paper.  Right now I have those in the Michaels bag, on a high shelf, so my cat won't get them, and the cut-outs, stickers, etc in my sticker box....but I'd like to have a more organized system.
Any ideas?
