21  Cheap yarn at Michaels! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by alana1223 on: January 20, 2007 03:41:00 PM
This stuff:

and some other fancy, fluffy type yarn is on sale at Michaels (at least in Asheville, NC, for $1, $2, and $3 a skein...

(I don't knit but it was so cheap I bought 10 skeins for my MIL in england Smiley  )

Just thought I'd share with all the knitters here!

22  Re: Stand up thingies for Shrinky Dinks??? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by alana1223 on: January 20, 2007 08:58:51 AM
These might be perfect:


I've used them for my biz, but they might hold the shrinky dinks well!  I think they're .15 each.

23  It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a.... Betta? in Completed Projects by alana1223 on: January 14, 2007 07:36:33 PM
My cat kept trying to eat my betta. 

I kept putting him on a higher and higher shelf. 

But this particular cat can jump up and balance on the shower curtain to drink fresh shower water.

So I came up with another solution.

It Worked.

I took a "Rose Bowl," I think they're called, and used some heavy gauge wire on it.  Then used frame wire to hang it from a hook in the ceiling.  It was tricky to get it all the right length, but once I did it worked great!

Oh, I made a little spiral at the bottom with a bead or two, so when I cleaned the bowl, I had to set it on the side of the sink with the garbage disposal so it wouldn't bend.  I also did water changes every 2 to 3 days.

24  Changing mid-project? From Choker to Cuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by alana1223 on: January 14, 2007 06:12:10 PM
I started this as a netted choker three years ago.

so... I decided that I would make this into a cool wrist cuff.

I undid two triangles to make it fit my wrist.

The corner on the left is the beginning side.

the right side is the side I undid.  I undid it to the point of matching up with the left.

I'm not sure what to use as far as clasps. 

I was thinking about the connector used on a bra strap... which my husband just told me is called a hook and eye (he use to make custom clothes for a living!)

Does anyone have any other ideas?

26  Netted Beaded Choker in Beads: Completed Projects by alana1223 on: January 14, 2007 04:38:14 PM
This is a necklace that I made a couple of years ago. 

I went through an injury and was couch-bound for about a year.  I was a beading maniac!  After reading and watching the boards, I finally got my bead case out!!!  This was in there, so I thought I'd share!

It sits just at the base of my neck and dangles nicely.  The beads are a sorta gunmetal/black rainbow color.

(Sorry about the quality of the pic... I took this from my phone.)

27  Hypertufa garden planter in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by alana1223 on: January 07, 2007 07:32:50 PM
Alright, here's my first post...

This was a hypertufa (lightweight cement - basically) garden planter.  It's the only pic I have.  My DH put it out in the back yard of the house we lived in a year ago and when we moved, he left it there.  Sad

It was really cool.  Smiley

More info about Tufa can be found here: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/hypertufa/

anyway... I'm super glad to have found this site!!!
