1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Collaborative Art Meetup in NYC on: April 26, 2004 05:30:35 PM
There's going to be a meetup of collaborative artists in NYC this Monday --it's organized by meetup.com so you can join (for free) there and find out more.  But you don't have to join to come to the meeting.  Here's the information: The cafe is called "88 Orchard," cleverly enough, as it's on 88 Orchard St, New York, NY.  The meeting will be Monday, May 3 @ 7:00PM.

Moppe is essentially boxes on shelves, so you can just take the boxes out and turn them around and replace them so that the u-shaped openings are at the back (I'm pretty sure that's what was done above).  This is perfect if you want to add handles because it sort of looks dumb (at least redundant) if there are both handles and the u-shaped openings on the front.  The moppe is excellent for refinishing -- I stained mine and then added handles.  It ended up looking so much better than unfinshed wood.  I plan to get some more and decoupage them.

Here's an idea for a lamp I made as a gift once (so sorry no pictures since I no longer have the lamp):

Get two matching (in size at least) glass "bricks" which are meant for building walls.  They come in different shapes and sizes but they usually have no back (like a box without a lid, basically).  Put the two of them back to back so they form an enclosed box.  Pack the interior space full of the string of lights (this ends up looking best if the cord is white, but it shouldn't matter too much).  Glue the two bricks together with silicon glue, leaving the end of the string of lights coming out of the bottom.  If you're so inclined, you can add an inline light switch to the tail of the light string so that the lamp can be turned on and off.
4  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Crafty trip to Michael's, anyone? on: December 09, 2003 06:30:32 AM
I live in Jersey City, NJ which is in fact mere minutes away from the island of Manhattan by PATH train.  Anyway I also have a car and I was thinking of going to the Michael's in Paramus because I've never been to one and there seem to be so many supplies that I want to get there(inspired by all the great project ideas on craftster.org!).  So I was thinking that there might be some car-less NYC and/or Jersey City area crafters who would want to come along.  I'm flexible about time, but I want to go sometime soon so that I can make all the holiday presents I want to give out this year.  It's very easy to get here from numerous points along sixth ave and now the WTC as well.  Then I think it's about 10-15 miles to the store.  Would anyone be interested in joining me?

I was looking around for a good place to order the glass marbles themselves online and ran into the difficulty of not knowing exactly what they're called.  It turns out that there's something called "marble embeds" which are used to make candles.  These appear to be the correct thing.  Anyway I ordered a bag because they were only $1.99 for 90 of them.  Here's the link: http://store.yahoo.com/spiritcrafts/clearmar12ou.html

a simple search on "tattoo paper" shows a number of places that sell it online (e.g. http://www.beldecal.com/tattoo_paper.cfm , http://www.railwayshop.com/tattoo.shtml ) but it does seem to be expensive.  I wonder if ink-jet printing on tissue paper or some other thin paper and then decoupaging onto the glass would work?

The etching cream is also a wonder to "rehabilitate" ugly or boring glass sets that you can find at thrift shops, flea markets, etc.  Add dots or stripes to plain boring glasses and have fun new ones!  masking tape works fine to make stripes, and for dots use a hole punch on sticker paper and slap it on the glass -- or if you are one of those people that have all kinds of paper punches then go to town on this...
