That's nifty.  Cool
Are you using an elastic cord?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Cousin graduating - need a little help on: May 29, 2007 06:33:56 PM
Sorry I probably should of mentioned that I have paper, a small square of polymer clay, some fabric laying around, yarn (but cannot knit or crochet - though my grandma was trying to show me crocheting before she became very sick), glue, paper, embroidery floss, and all kinds of odds and ends that I could probably reconstruct into something else.  Felt might be on the way here too.  I'm leaving to go up there either Thursday or Friday, so not a lot of time left.  I keep coming back to the apron/smock, even though I cannot sew (well) and cannot fathom how I would make it.
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Welcome to the Vegetarian / Vegan board! on: May 27, 2007 03:59:17 PM
This is my first post here.  I've been a vegetarian since November of 99.  I started to dislike eating meat over the course of 1999, eliminating foods every now and then.  One of the reasons that I decided to go veggie was due to the idea of mad cow disease.  Also hearing about what was found at meat plants in the 1930s and the thought that it could happen again.  Plus I was reading too much snopes at the time and even the things that were untrue, just bothered me.  Now really anything could be contaminated, but I'll just stay away from meat/poultry and the like just the same. 
I do like faux meat products.  I really like Boca burgers and Morningstar farms chic nuggets. 
Now I am off to look at recipes.

My fave bumpersticker EVER!!!: "My kid beat up your honor roll student"
My favorite bumper sticker is one I first saw 11 years ago in the Smashing Pumpkins (one of my all time fav. bands) music video for 1979 is "Proud Parents of a D Student."  I'd like to put that on my car. 

I also agree that "Will teach for crayons" is good and kid friendly. 

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Cousin graduating/ graduated on: May 27, 2007 01:39:47 PM
Originally this was a post asking for help, but I thought I would edit it and say what I gave my cousin.  Maybe it will spark an idea... or not.   

Anyway, I hollowed out the book like I said.  I painted, personalized it by putting his name on it, and finished with varnish.  Then I got  a small flashlight and wrapped it in red embroidery floss and glued it.  Put the flashlight in the book along with a couple tiny candy bars and a little bit of cash.  Unfortunately, I have no pictures of it.  He really liked the hollowed book. 
6  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Re: miniature classic/cult film characters? on: April 28, 2007 01:10:30 PM
This is a cool idea... Actually, in 1998 (11th grade), I made a figure of James Duval from a cult film called The Doom Generation (a very, very bizarre film).  It was him as his character Jordan from the cover of the box.  The figurine has disappeared since then.  My guess is someone broke it (since it was made of clay) and didn't bother to tell me. 

I think now I'd probably make an Alexander DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange or maybe continue with the James Duval theme and make a Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko.

Since my screen name is a video game character's name (and the game abbreviation next to it), I'm all for it! ^_^
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: My first project posted here inspired by posts on here - hollowed book (classic) on: April 27, 2007 04:38:58 PM
Thanks for all the compliments.  I'm planning on working on some more.  Tomorrow, one of the local libraries is having a sale - a grocery bag of books for $2.00.   Hopefully there is still a lot there by the time I arrive.   Huh

To McJulie-O:  I know I should get a picture.  My mom knew about the project and never got to see it.  She keeps saying that she wished that she could of seen it.

So far it is looking pretty cool.  I think a black iron handle would look sharp.  The one inch mirror squares might look good... though a long one inch wide mirror might look good on each side of the table as well.

That's really cool.  Though I will admit that I like the blue coloring of the old one.  However, the new style of it is really nice and it still has some blue in it.   Cool

I should do something to mine.  Mine looks like something that an 85 year old should own, not a 25 year old.
