I probably won't make it tomorrow due to cookout plans, but I'd like to venture forth to Rio Rita next Thursday (I suppose I have no excuse since I live in the neighborhood) to quench my curiosity.   Grin

Anyone else interested?

It's been a long time since I have posted. 

Does anyone on here ever frequent "Arts and Drafts" on Thursday nights?  I was thinking about showing up after class one night, and was wondering if there is any Craftster representation...

Hi there!   Smiley

I moved to Austin from Chicago in January.  I am an artist (mostly painting) currently building up a new body of work to submit to galleries/shows.  I haven't shown anything in a couple years, so I am looking forward to jumping back in the art scene with some new work. 

I work at the Capitol as a runner/clerk; I got the job through a temp agency the first day I applied, but if you check on craigslist austin there are always quite a few of admin/office opportunities.  If you would like to PM me, I can send you information on some local temp agencies as well; raindancing was right, there are plenty of day jobs to choose from. 

The South Congress area is way cool, but I found it to be (for home+studio space) a little pricey, so I ended up finding a *lovely* house on the East Side, north of Town Lake.  It's about a 5-7 minute drive downtown, and I commute by bus to work, which takes (at most) 15-20 minutes.  Bus passes are also $10/month ($5 if you're a student), and the extra 2 miles/day I walk to/from bus stops does not hurt either.  Wink  Ideally I would love to buy a place in the next couple of years; I will probably stay on the East Side.

Okay, I will write more tomorrow, off workie in 4 minutes.   Grin

I *love* Miss Chan Marshall, she is one of my favorites.   Cheesy  I think it looks good, but if it was me I would be inclined to add a bit o color.  Maybe work with the album cover's colors, adding some hot pink accent to the bold lettering and a little gold to the boxing gloves.

I think this is a fabulous way to start:

Here are some suggestions from Sunset magazine:

Turn them into mulch. Slip on protective eyewear and hammer pots into small, dull chunks for a short dirt path (not good for bare feet).

Cover drainage holes. Place medium-size chunks (about 2 inches wide) at the bottom of pots so that soil doesn't wash out once you plant and begin watering.

Repair them. If the pot is valuable and the break is clean, apply glue that's appropriate for porous materials (Liquid Nails is one) to the edges of the break and cinch the pot together with a band clamp. Allow it to dry thoroughly.

I like breaking the pots into smaller chunks and placing them at the bottom of my pots, which will help with drainage and reduce your soil spilling out of the bottom, as stated above.

Dinky Dyes has *beautiful* floss, in both silk and cotton.  I'm going to be stitching up a DD Celtic wedding sampler for my sister and her husband soon, using their cotton threads.
