1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Recently converted vegetarian.. on: November 14, 2008 08:01:27 AM
Thank you! Yeah, I was looking through a lot of these and some of them sound really good. I just bought that cookbook, well I think its the same one (its orange right?) and there is a vegetarian restaurant in Athens, GA near were I live that has a cookbook that they put out and I bought it too, really yummy stuff. For me its just learning about new foods and stuff that I haven't eaten before. I like pastas, rice, and yes I love beans! Haha. I will try anything once just about, and I really love the Amy's meals. And I steam veggies a lot and pretty much put them with anything. Lately I have been on an asparagus kick and I've been eating it with rice or Morning Star Chik'n. And I love a good salad with a garden burger or black bean burger. Anyway, you guys are cool and this transition has been so easy with all of my friends aiding me and stuff I've read on here. I am just looking for new things to try, and its so hard living in a house full of meat eaters. But I feel so much better and I have to really pay attention when I eat out and stuff and I haven't been to a fast food restaurant in two months! That's a huge thing for me because I use to visit one at least once a week. Now if I can just give up cola then I'll be set. I just wish it didn't taste so good.. oh well. Thanks for the advice. You guys rock!!   
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: November 13, 2008 12:24:27 PM
I became a vegetarian mainly for health reasons. I needed to start eating right and lose some weight because I have been super unhealthy the past few years. And a friend of mine is a vegetarian and helped me transition. I also did it because I started learning more and more about how animals were being treated and it wasn't just the Food Industry, but the Cosmetics Industry and others that test on animals. I also started reading more and more about Free Range and Organic meats and how the majority of them are a huge scam. I think in order to be considered free range they only have to let them out of their cages for about a hour or two. Isn't that horrible? Anyway, since I started eating better, I've felt so much better health wise and mental wise and conscious wise.

I just recently became a vegetarian about two months ago and at first it was super easy. I love vegetables, so it wasn't a hard transition. I also love Boca Burgers and Morning Star products, but lately the things I've been cooking and preparing are getting old and I would like to know if you guys have any suggestions for one person meals or cook books. If you have any ideas please let me know! Thanks guys!

which type of paper do you use from kelly paper? i found them online and was looking into buying some from them. what do you think?
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: posters on: April 27, 2007 12:41:43 AM
i think they are going to be 18x24..i have a huge handmade screen that i can use and i got two in the kit, so i am pretty set. my friend is giving me her light table so i have all the supplies, i just need the poster paper to print on and i am still trying to get some of that at a cheap price and then i need to get like vellum or something to put the pattern on so i can develop it to print it. but i will get to work and post as soon as i can.
do you think using the whole photo emulsion way is best, or is there a better way? in the kit it has about three different ways to do it and they all seem pretty straight forward and simple projects, but i am going to be doing a whole bunch, so i need the easiest and fastest way to get a good result. luckily my friend is really into the whole diy, kinda semi-jacked up look which is what i was going for anyway because i think it looks really cool.
so yeah, i will do all that, post pictures, and any other advice is greatly appreciated. thanks so much!

i saw that mentioned in a topic and i was wondering if that was good to use for mesh? i am having a difficult time finding good mesh to use.

ooh, sound like a fun challenge!!! i have an idea...i SHOULD try it first but...here's my speculation...mind you, i have only just completed my first two little bs mod podge fake screens... maybe if you take a piece of screen, or in my case i just used some organza fabric, and hot glued it to a "frame" cut out of maybe...hmm... some fun foam sheet and then you did your little picture inside...maybe that would work? i think that a roller would work if it were a cute tiny one or you could just stipple the paint through (which then it's really more of a stencil, tomatoH tomatoE...)
maybe a frame out of something small like toothpicks or popsicle sticks?
I think I'll go give this a try...but let me know if i am totally off base anyone...like i said, i am brand new to this Smiley

well..i just started and i really have no skills at all. but my friend started up this really sweet skateboarding site and he asked me to make him some posters and i was really pumped about it, but started getting scarred because i really want to do a good job especially since he bought all the supplies for me with the exception of a few things that i already have. the only thing is, i don't know exactly what he wants me to print, and neither does he. i am begging him not to make it too complex, but i know i am going to have to do probably 3 layers and i am going to have to do some words. so i really need some tips on layering and how to put words on it, it won't have too many words, something simple. but he bought me this really awesome speedball kit that have everything i need. i just really need some more mesh. and i can't find it anywhere. so yeah..that's the story. haha, a little long, but i am just getting nervous. and i need to make some samples first to make sure i can get it down before i do the real thing.
