1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Food Is Art (Recipe Swap) sign-up closed.. feel free to start another one on: June 28, 2004 09:52:39 AM
Thanks for the good advice, Lia.

The only thing I would stress is the value of reading both the SWAPPING ETIQUETTE and the SWAPPING GUIDELINES before posting any new swap. These guidelines provide valuable information for both swap organizers & participants and ultimately save everyone needless confusion and/or frustration.  Wink
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a shirt--cool phrases needed. on: June 11, 2004 05:35:09 AM
I just made this up to put on my biz. card:

Looking for a Solid Investment?
Buy My Art &
Earn My Eternal Gratitude!

or another "artists-gone-militant-phrase" is:

I'll stop charging you for my artwork
when my landlord stops charging me rent!


3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Starting a Retro Craft Thread... on: June 03, 2004 06:15:03 AM
does anybody remember the museum of craft folder??? guess not.


The Museum of Craft is described as a folder in which to "scan and post kitschy projects from your vintage craft books".

Perhaps people wish to have a thread in which to post non-kitschy items?
Perhaps the object they'd like to post is not a craft from a book, but is an original design?

As for museums in general?
"An artist may visit a museum, but only a pedant can live there." (George Santayana)

4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Deco Swap #3 (Mail out 5/17/04) on: June 02, 2004 02:59:26 PM
If everyone will please read the New Swap Regulations, they clearly state that the new package tracking requirement for swaps DOES NOT apply to the Papercrafts Mailart Ring (of which Bewitched and I are the co-moderators. If you need further assistance or need more information, please feel free to email or contact us via private message.)  Smiley

Also if you wish need to discuss the package tracking issue for this particular swap in further detail, please do so in the thread I opened specifically for this purpose entitled "Mailart: Package Tracking or Not? a.k.a. The Shipping News".

That thread was opened so that other people might benefit from your discussion regarding the various pro's and con's of package tracking in the future. Thanks so much.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Starting a Retro Craft Thread... on: June 02, 2004 02:35:55 PM
Would this be a thread dedicated to retro crafts i.e. macrame, tatting... whatever or are you proposing a thread that features crafts that celebrate all things retro? For instance, objects that use retro design elements or imagery..etc. Or both? I'm interested in both but am out of the loop in terms of this discussion soooo...... Huh

And speaking of silicon glue, has anybody else seen this thread about the problem with the silicon glue yellowing after about one year?


Has anyone else encountered this problem? I'd really like to know. (I've sold quite a few of them and when I read this ... well... YIKES!!!!)  Huh

I haven't had any complaints so far but I'm just wondering if there is something else that is a little less toxic and a lot less likely to turn the "dreaded yellow"?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Microscope slide necklaces on: May 29, 2004 08:53:22 AM
I gave away (and sold) a ton of those microscope slide pendants at Christmas last year! They were a huge hit... thank you,once again ... CraftyChicaAZ! I just glued the eyehooks in between two sheets of paper (the images for the pendant) with a glue stick! (It held 'em just fine) I used two microcope slides (a slide "sandwich") and held the whole thing together with faux "chrome" tape from an auto supply store. I used the handle of a wooden spoon to burnish the tape along the top and sides of the "slide sandwich". (Someone told me that wooden spoon thing was a trick stained glass workers use with copper tape...) It worked a treat!  Wink

(p.s. You can buy tools for safely cutting glass quite cheaply. Especially if you only want to cut very small, flat pieces of glass. Just visit a stained glass or arts'n'crafts supply store or do a google search.)  Smiley
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! HAS ANYBODY MADE FONTS? on: May 27, 2004 05:27:34 PM
Wow! I also <3 dingbats!  Wink Yep. Fontographer is a monster piece of software with a monster price tag. I'm definitely not at that stage yet. People like Ray Larabie (yay! another Canuck!) and Luc Devroye recommend starting with entry-level software such as ScanFont or High Logic's Font Creation programme. Guess I will simply have to start saving my pennies and hope that our currency (CDN$) improves a little more... Smiley
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! HAS ANYBODY MADE FONTS IN YE OLDE PHOTOSHOPPE? on: May 27, 2004 04:14:20 AM
Yep...I tried that link and wound up in the WasteLand of Shameless Internet Trickery. (You click on a link that you think is going to take you somewhere useful and end up at some idiotic, useless shite-site)

(p.s. Thanks for trying anyways, guys!!)  Smiley

As it turns out ...ahem... the software I received is part of a "bundle". It was a gift and I didn't actually get the font-making gear which is a programme called ScanFont. Sigh. Back to the drawing board...

Unless anyone knows how to make fonts in PhotoShop 7? Huh (I've heard it can be done but have no idea how.)
Hey FunkyOlive! This is just an idea for artistamps or stickers to put on envies when people are sending out mailart. You can use a different design, a different slogan (i.e. it doesn't have to say "mail art mob") ... anything at all!  Wink
