1  Re: Diet Recipe Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by thecoffindontwantme on: September 19, 2007 06:21:29 PM
Here are the pictures! WARNING! THERE ARE A LOT!

Everything together:

My beautiful recipe book! I believe it was meant to be a photo album. One of those kinds that stands up. I like it better as a recipe book.  Smiley  I absolutely love it:

I can easily read the recipes and not have to deal with a book closing! :

A Harry Potter bookmark, some cute little Triwizard Tournament cardboard things (that are already on my wall), and a note from Wendy!

Some wonderful light lemonade single packets that I'm already addicted to!

And some awesome graduation things that will be wonderful in May!
These were left over from her brother's graduation. I got some stationary paper, stickers, and a little stamp that says "Happy Graduation!":

Thank you so much Wendy! You totally spoiled me! You were a great partner!!!  Grin

3  Plus Size Designers need common sense! Sleeves... in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by thecoffindontwantme on: August 25, 2007 02:39:35 PM
I have this shirt, it's a size 2x, and it's really cute.
One problem...the sleeves.
Let me show you this shirt as an example:

See those sleeves? Subtract about an inch and a half, and there's the length of the sleeves on my shirt.
I would like to think that plus size women's clothes are actually designed by plus size women, but wouldn't they know that I DO NOT WANT TO SHOW OFF MY JIGGLY ARM FAT, NOR DO PEOPLE WANT TO SEE IT? Why do that to a perfectly adorable shirt that would look great with sleeves about 5" longer?

So, does anyone have any ideas on how I could adjust those sleeves?
I can post a picture of the shirt if I need to.

4  Re: Old Gift Cards in What the heck can I do with THIS? by thecoffindontwantme on: August 24, 2007 08:26:27 PM
I know this post is old as dirt, but I would just like to show something I came across recently. A great idea for anyone (read: ME!) still looking for something to do with all of those old gift cards!


Seller's Description:
 This bracelet is fun and colorful! It is approximately 8 inches in length, but due to the nature of the chain can be worn smaller by clasping to any of the chain links. It is made using recycled credit and gift cards all in a variety of colors. The jump rings, chain and clasp are all sterling silver. There are also extra rings hung between each card charm. This bracelet is lightweight, comfortable to wear and makes a great sound as your arm moves.

Does ^ that mean I can't copy this idea for personal use?  Lips sealed

I'm glad you like it! I had a few postcards that I knew I definitely wanted to send, and that was one of them. As soon as I read your questionnaire I knew it was perfect for you.  Smiley

Here are the gorgeous cards I've received so far.

From whatzudoin:

From PixZstyle:

Thank you both so much!  Smiley

Here is the awesome book I got from theatregirl25.
I can't wait to start reading it!  Smiley

And here are my two lovely bookmarks.

Seeing the ones she made really makes me question my bookmark making abilities. These are so cute!

10  Help finding a pattern in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by thecoffindontwantme on: June 05, 2007 06:57:36 PM
I was at Old Navy today and I found this absolutely gorgeous short sleeve knit hoodie, but it was $35. I knew I could make something just like it, but I can't find a pattern I really like a lot.
I didn't see a picture of it on their site, so I can't help you there. I just hope someone has seen a pattern for something close to this.

I found this picture on Alloy.
It's kind of the same style, but the one I saw was longer, and didn't have such a deep v-neck.

I know this is probably asking a lot, but I really want to make this. Smiley
