Third times a charm. Each time I tried to post this, my computer said "oh no" and shut the window on me.
A few days ago someone posted a picture of the table they painted. It brought back the paintingness inside of me.
Does anyone know any average ever day around the house items I can paint with acrylic paint?
I've got the paint, but no money to buy anything to paint and i've got the urge BAD to paint.
Also..my boy and I will so be painting our own table as soon as I get some money....weee
Hi all, I am looking for an opinion. Say you have never, ever done any kind of needlework before but would like to start. What is a good form of beginning needlework? Online, I have been looking at counted cross stitch, stamped cross stitch, no count cross stitch, needle point and plastic canvas cross stitch. I can't tell which one would be best for a true beginner. Any thoughts?
so, I've been making records bowls where you melt a record in the oven (I usually put it at 145 degrees F) and then mold it into a bowl by either placing it over another bowl or just trying to form it myself. I've made quite a few, and would love to teach this craft to children but first....
anyone know if melting records is hazardous to ones health? (releases gasses, etc?
I was wondering, do any of you know of places online that have patterns (free if possible) for clothes suitable for the SCA? They can be sewn, knitted or crocheted.
I want to print out some of my digital photos for a photo collage I'm working on. However, my printer sucks and ink is expensive. Where do you ladies go to have prints made of your digital photos?
I've been trying to price check and compare, and I wonder about quality. I've also heard that at some places they will lower the price per print for a large quantity of pictures...
Generally I have been finding that 4x6 prints can be pretty cheap (24-29 cents), but there is a huge increase for 5x7 (75-95 cents?)
I'm an American, if that helps. I have local Walmart, Wegmans, Eckerds, CVS, etc. I am not adverse to ordering prints online, either, if shipping is not too bad.
What store(s) sell colored duct tape, or is that only available online?
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I checked the memories and could only find links to on-line stores.
Hello all. I searched the FAQ and found nothing of help, so I need to ask a question of sorts, referring to safe decorations for a fish tank.
I want to make a figurine of a camera or sync slate (I'm a filmmaker, so sue me) to put into my betta's tank with him. I'm not sure how to safely seal clay or Sculpey so that it's okay to put into the water with my fish. He's adorable and bored, so if anyone could offer suggestions on how I can bake and seal clay or something along those lines, I would love you forever... and Rosco P. Coltraine would be grateful for a nice new ornament in his tank. :)
I am not as nearly as creative as most of you people on here. But I've always been intrigued by knitting. Can anyone give me any pointers such as where to start? Would it be hard to learn on my own? And where would be some good websites to start etc..? I don't have time for classes and such in between work and school but I thought it'd be a great hobby to take up. Any ideas, tips, tricks.. and where to start would be greatly appreciated.
T.I.A. (thank you in advance)
Hi, this is my first time posting here, but I've been lurking for a couple weeks now. Right now I'm trying to alter an old pair of jeans that have gotten too small for me. I have two strips of heavy ribbon that I want to use to make insets on the outside of the legs. The problem is, I don't know what to do about the waist band. How can I make it larger? Should I just cut straight up the sides and use the ribbon to expand that as well? If I do that I don't think the ribbon will be quite long enough to reach the ankles. I could really use some creative ideas on what to do with these!
Thanks girls! :)
this is a public service announcement.
I'm currently organizing the first of what I hope will be many DIY Fashion Shows/Crafty-Sort Expos for people in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that design their own clothes, housewares, accessories, blankets, bags, etc.
Goal is to host the show in August, somewhere in the DFW area. In addition to a runway show during the day, participants will be given booth space and the opportunity to vend their wares to attendees. The show will be well publicized and I think you can expect a decent turn-out of potential buyers.
Currently talking with investors and am banking on this being a free-entry show for participants and cheap-attendance show for attendees.
But I can't put on the show if nobody wants to be in it!
So, please - if you're interested or know someone who would be, email me at:
xx apologies for much cross-postage
Is there a community out there for DIY Furniture/Housewares?
Thanks In Advance Girls<3
