    I have had many friends like this... and really... since there is always that chance that ignoring him could change him from just saying it to doing it... I would really suggest finding him some help. Go show a counciler the messages and they will talk to him and help him find the help he needs... sure he may want nothing to do after that but you won't have to deal with his calls/texts and he might get the help he needs.

    I buy mine at a few places... Walmart has packs of 15 for what adds up to about 23 cents each... but I go to Jo-ann or Michaels for more colors and pay about 30 cents a sheet.

    The mascara actually made a lot bigger difference than I thought it would! And I found some pink tinted lip balm that looks great too... so I'm off to a good start I think! And since I never wear makeup it adds that extra bit of what I was hoping for for Christmas dinner tonight with my fiance's family. Hopefully I can go pick up some eyeshadow to mess with with my christmas money.

    Hmm... my dad almost never has that issue. He does clean them a lot... and changes the earrings often. Every once and a while he has that issue and cleaning with hydrogen peroxide usually takes care of it. You just have to be sure to clean your ears as well as the earrings (which most people forget) and you should be fine.

    Well, I'm pretty new to sewing and so far I've been attempting plushes and keychains and such... but I'm encountering the same problem with everything I do. I assume it is because I don't really know different stitches and such... but whenever I flip my projects to stuff them you can see the stitching all the way around. On some it looks totally cute but on others it looks messy... also, is there some kind of trick to sewing up that last bit after you stuff?

    Skipping sizes is okay as long as you don't skip too many... you don't want to force it too much or it'll just hurt and won't be worth it. My dad is really into this kind of thing and had me doing mine for a little before I decided I didn't really like it on myself.

    Well, honestly, my skin isn't as nice as it used to be. I have quite a few red spots etc that I would like to try and cover up. I'm going shopping Thursday to pick up a few things... figured mascara would be a good idea... what about eye shadows and lip sticks? Any suggestions for those? I did order the sample foundation pack from everyday minerals and I'll see how that looks. I really just need something light... I know my mom always looked like she was painting her face before she left. >_<

    I've been looking for a thread like this for a while but haven't found any outside of the website thread but I was more looking for specifically blogs.

    Do you have a blog? Personal or just a crafting one? I just started one up to blog about my crafting adventures as a new crafter learning about the world of different crafts. Link me to your blogs, especially crafting ones! Mine is http://memitaru.blogspot.com/ and anyone that feels like following it and commenting/giving tips and advice is more than welcome!

    Thanks for all the great tips! I was thinking I'd try some of that stuff from http://www.everydayminerals.com/ and see how that works to start... those sample packs look like they'll be nice to help me find the right shade.

    Well... for every group of people that are trend crafting... there are a few that get really into it... stick with it. I know personally I got into crafting because of my grandma... but I have friends and siblings that started out with Scrapbooking or Knitting because it was popular... and now they make amazing projects of all kinds! I mean... a lot of people wouldn't even think to craft if someone hadn't shown them how neat it was!

    Well, the problem is that you only really get one family... and you don't get to pick them. By not talking to your mother you are both hurting her and yourself. You can't make her decide... and trying to force her is going to hurt her more. All you can really do is try and get her to understand how toxic the relationship really is... either that or try and talk to your sister.

    I've been making them toys, they just tear them apart faster than I can make them! lol. Though, with xmas coming up, giant bells are really cheap so I've been giving them tons of bells to roll around.
