1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Food gifts for a Vedic? on: December 05, 2005 02:15:25 PM
Ok, this is a little wacky...

I found a cute jar at the resale shop. Thought "hey, that would make a good gift for my landlord/friend" I'd like to fill it with ...something. I was thinking about the "gift in a jar" thing, but he's on a Vedic diet. I've done a little research on that, but it's hard to know what would be ok to put into, say, a soup mix. I'm not even sure he can eat cookies, so a cookie mix might not be a good idea. Or is it? Any Vedics here?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Chain Mail Crochet? on: August 16, 2005 12:47:49 AM
I was at the Ren Fair the other day, and noticing the chain mail clothing merchants. Then a girl walked past wearing a tank sweater with a really loose, uh, I guess "weave" would be the right word. Anyway, it hit me...chain mail-looking crochet!! I'm new to crochet, so I'm wondering is there a stich or something that would give that effect? I'm allergic to metal (on my skin, that is), plus, real chain mail is NOT cheap. Any ideas? Knowing my luck, there's probably already a thread about this...Thanks!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Fugly Dresser!!!! on: July 20, 2005 01:43:21 PM
I'm moving into a apartment where one bedroom greeted us with a 5 foot long, waist-high 70's FUGLY dresser. It could almost be called a buffet, but it's mostly drawers. Here's the deal...my new landlord, who's has also been my friend (yeah, we'll see how long that lasts...) doesn't want to part with it. He feels it's "extra storage", and would onyl let us put it into the attic if I don't keep it...no way am I moving this heavy thing up there! He also doesn't want me to paint it, or do anything permanent to alter it's apperance. Apparently he's "fugly-blind". Sooooo....what can I do to make it less fugly, that's not permanent? Put new cabinet style doors on it? Stretch fabric over the drawer fronts? Help!!!

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Beads from a car seat cover on: February 04, 2004 07:24:36 AM
I've got a busted beaded car seat cover from a friend. The beads are all about a half inch long, flatish (not perfectly round) and are either dark or light brown.Now my first thought was making a beaded curtain, but now i'm thinking painting them and making key chains. i'd have so damn many, i could sell them! Any ideas on how i can string these beads into keychains? thanks!
