1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: postage stamp necklaces... (tutorial added.) on: June 01, 2007 09:49:49 AM
I also love the goldfish - what a fun find! I've made similar pendants and never thought to use microscope slides - I'll have to give it a try. I've been using art glass, which is fairly thick, and cane instead of solder. Well, I use solder, but just at the corners.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Cat Toys Galore! on: May 31, 2007 04:00:35 PM
Yes, my cats would love them, too. They look so soft and the colors choices are great!

I've discovered my cat loves pipe cleaners. I left my craft junk trunk open one day and came home from work to find pipe cleaners everywhere. My girl kitty, Chloe, dug a plastic bag of craft stuff out of the bottom of the trunk, got the bag of pipe cleaners out of the plastic bag and pulled each pipe cleaner out individually. Nothing else was strung out, not the pom poms, yarn or felt, just the pipe cleaners. For all of her hard work - I left a few out for her and she's still carrying them around the house.

I'll definately post some pics - if I remember to take them lol. I don't have a digital camera - keep spending any extra $ on craft stuff, of course. But I will use my mom's.
4  UNITED STATES / Nebraska / Re: Any crafters in Lincoln? on: May 31, 2007 02:27:01 PM

I used to live in Lincoln for a number of years, but have moved to the Sandhills. Now I'm closer to Denver :-) but I definately miss Lincoln - especially the music stores (Homers downtown is closing though - sniff - sniff), fish bowls, the absence of country music playing on juke boxes, billions of garage sales and the amazing thrift stores.

My favorite was St. Theresa's on 36th and Randolph. I found soooo many amazing things there - for example a handmade quilted skirt which is probably to this day one of the better thrift store finds I've made, not to mention the wonderful prices and quirky atmosphere. If you haven't been there - definately check it out! They are open on Fridays until around 7:00 and Saturdays until around 3:00. It's a magical place.
5  UNITED STATES / Nebraska / Scottsbluff, NE - Sugar Valley Craft Show on: May 31, 2007 02:10:21 PM
Anyone from Western Nebraska?

I was reading the paper today and discovered there will be a craft show in Scottsbluff June 2nd and 3rd at Frank Park (East 27th and Broadway) from 9am to 6pm on Saturday and 10:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday. Nearly 100 exhibitors from 7 states will be showing their wares - which is a pretty good size for this part of the country.

I didn't even know about it, but have requested information for any upcoming festivals, so if anyone is interested, let me know.

Now if only I had some money to go and spend . . .

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: What can I do with X-Ray films? on: May 30, 2007 12:04:28 PM
I once saw a really neat lampshade made out of X-Rays. It was Four sided and each panel was made out of a different X-Ray. It looked really neat lit up.

I'm not sure if the shade was handmade or purchase; though it did look as if is was made out of metal. You may be able to do something using a stained-glass technique. You could use clear glass, attach the X-ray on top, and solder it together - I think it would work, but I'm not sure - would have to ask my mom. She does stained glass.

I like the curtain idea, too - sounds fun.

Hello - My name is Tiffany and I just registered on the site. I live in the Sandhills of Western Nebraska and enjoy creating with my hands and mind. I have been making things for as long as I can remember. My favorite past-times are reading, making jewelry, working with glass, making collages, working with clay and I am also teaching myself how to sew.

One of the projects I am currently working on is a guitar strap for my sister's graduation present. It is reversable with a "Bushism" embroidered with some cute patches one one side and the word "ROCK" appliqued on felt with a little raised lightning cloud on the other side, and she likes it a lot :-)

I look forward to participating in this forum!
