1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mod podge, particle board, and the New York Times on: October 09, 2011 05:15:56 PM
That's true, I don't think I could make this thing uglier if I tried.

I figure I'll sand it to rough it up, add a layer of mod podge, a layer of newspaper, and more mod podge.

Here goes nothing  Cheesy

I have this really ugly two shelf cart thing. It's missing a wheel and has this really blah "wood" particle board. Brilliant idea! Cover it with an issue of a sweet newspaper and take the wheels off!

My question is this - is there anything I need to know about mod podge and particle board? Is mod podge even the best way to do this? I'm great with ideas, execution sometimes eludes me.

Thanks crafters!!!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Suggestions for an awesome bday cake?? HELP. on: September 24, 2009 03:37:40 PM
Making a Planet Express cake is probably more my skill level. I have no idea whom his "favorite" characters are, I just know he likes the shows in general Cheesy

Any tips for making a flat sheetcake? Mine always have a dome on them, I don't know if they're supposed to be like that and you do something to them? I've made a ton of cakes but I've never made them look like anything in particular. If that makes sense Cheesy

Thanks for the ideas!

Okay, so my boyfriend is turning 21 in less than a month. I won't be able to get him a super awesome present so I figure I'll bake him a super awesome cake. Except I'm lacking creativity. Maybe you guys could shoot me a few ideas?

Things he likes:
Star Wars
Scotch whiskey
The Simpsons
Firearms of various nature
Metal (the genere of music)

If anyone has some creative ideas, please help me out!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 50s dress help on: June 22, 2009 09:43:06 PM
Okay, I'm completely obsessed with the 1950's. I want a classic 50's housewife day dress (or many, but we'll see). Anyways, I'm not the kind of person that can just look at something and make up a pattern. (Only did that once with an apron). So...Here are a couple pictures of what I'm looking for, does anyone have an idea of where to find similar patterns/tutes? Thanks! Here's what I'm looking for:

Use sewing shears. They're the ones that are...slightly bent? They're flat on the bottom and angled up, if that makes any sense. Buy a brand new sharp pair, and don't use those shears to cut ANYTHING except fabric/patterns. ESPECIALLY paper. I have a separate scissors for cutting anything else. Hope that helps Smiley

Also, to get a straight clean cut, make sure the fabric is on a hard surface and isn't wrinkled up at all.

And there's no such thing as a stupid question Smiley

The glass that broke was the Brunette (?) kneeling girl. The one kneeling forward. You don't have to make a new one if you don't want to though, I currently only have 3 place settings at the table  Cheesy

ahhh its taken me wayyyy to long to reply. thanks for uploading those pics for me, grenouille. This is the only camera I've come across that has a special cord, not just a standard one. Anyways, Since you posted pics, I'll post action shots??

(I also loved that we send each other aprons of similar fabric Smiley )

Forgive the unhappy expression. I recall me trying to show off and BF making fun. Me: "Just take the picture already grrr!" hahaha.

Yummy coke out of a pretty pinup girl glass Smiley

I also got a matching head scarf, which I wear while I'm cleaning and doing laundry. BF teases but I remind him that I'm practicing for being a housewife and his demeanor softens  Cheesy

Anyways, sorry this took sooo long but thanks for everything grenouille I LOVE IT ALL Smiley

I'm glad you liked everything grenouille. Cheesy

When my mom loaned me her camera she neglected to loan me the cord, and mine is not the right size, so I'll post pics after my bday dinner tonight Smiley

Also, I'm glad the apron fits, I was afraid it would be too small Cheesy

Ok, pics to come later tonight, I'm so excited!

I have some leftover _____, so I might see if I can whip up something from that to throw in.

Tease  Cheesy

Anyways, I found my cat, and school is out for the summer so I'm focusing a lot of my time crafting. Smiley

I came up with another great idea the other day while I was browsing at Jo-Ann's (always dangerous) so I'm really excited to get started on that as well.

Happy crafting!
