1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: New In-Depth Pouring Resin for Photographic/Graphic Jewelry Tutorial on: October 26, 2009 11:35:53 PM
Your tutorial was amazing! Thanks so much for sharing! I bought some resin tonight and now I'm waiting for my molds and trays from eBay! I have a couple of questions for you... The first being: How do you pour the resin into the trays? It looks like you are using an eye dropper of some sort. Where do you get that??
Also, do you have to buff or polish your pieces after you are done? I keep reading how people use "wet sanding" methods to sand the edges. Not sure if this is relevant to you since you use trays... but I thought I'd ask an experienced resin user!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old fur collars, random scraps, and pelts--now what? on: November 22, 2008 11:01:58 PM
This probably isn't what you are really looking for, but I bought an old fur collar at a swap meet for a couple of bucks thinking I could do something creative... come to find out, I never did. So I put it on eBay and it actually went for $45. Haha... So if you can't think of anything, it looks like there is a market on ebay for last cause scenario! Good luck!!

This is so beautiful! I did something similar when I traveled to France... by collecting things that I found/receipts/sugar packets, etc... and sometimes I flip through the book and reminisce my entire trip! Yours is especially amazing though. I LOVE the vintage bingo cards. Where did you get those??
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Am I overreacting? (about a purse someone made for me) on: September 10, 2008 04:11:34 PM
Wow, i just spent the last 20 mins or so reading this thread. What a crappy situation! I'm sorry that it's been so difficult for you! Have you tried contacting your bank? Once I bought something off of eBay that was NOT as described, but the seller nor Paypal would do anything about it. So I contacted my bank and put a "stop payment" on it. My bank was very understanding and refunded my money in full. You might want to consider that if you are not able to sort things out with the new "denim" bag!!

I know this post is a bit old but I thought it would be good for future reference! I purchased organic beeswax from eBay.... Now I have too much and don't know what to do with it!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Gallon jars?? on: September 07, 2008 11:55:43 AM
I got the jars from an online wholesale website! They turned out to be like only $2 a jar because I ordered more than 12 of them! If you type in glass jars on google, there are TONS of websites that offer them at wholesale prices!

Also, if you decide to order them, some people has FABULOUS ideas of what to fill them with!!!
9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Day of the Dead paper mache Sugar Skull with pictures! on: September 07, 2008 11:53:11 AM
Thanks you guys!!
THX138: I got the shape of the eyes by cutting a hole and then laying two more layers of news paper and indenting it. Does this make sense??

DaringtobeGreat: I got the shape by using a balloon. I just blew it up and layered paper mache onto it. I took pictures throughout the process if you guys would like a picture tutorial??
10  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Day of the Dead paper mache Sugar Skull with pictures! on: September 01, 2008 09:57:01 AM
Hopefully I'm posting this in the right place...

Anyway, so my grandpa passed away in 2005, and I've been wanting to make him a calaca, (sugar skull) in honor of his life. So here is my first attempt at a paper mache sugar skull! And not to sound snotty, but the pictures do it no justice... it changes the colors and makes it look kind of bland! Oh well, here they are! Smiley

I forgot to take pictures of the back of the head, but it just gives the dates that he was born and passed.
