What a great idea to do this class with a spouse!
Fun! I feel like your cowboy needs a lasso to wrangle that obstinate 9V.
Getting Started with Electronics
So they used to just put the ingredients into the snow? Interesting. I'm pretty sure my mom did that for us because it was what her mom did for her. Maybe my affections for frozen confections (haha that is fun to say) goes deeper than I thought. :)
Thank You! This update actually made me cry. I was thinking last night, "If I just knew WHY this senseless act happened, maybe I could finally accept the loss and move on". I acknowledge that sounds crazy. In my defense, I'm on medication that that has the unfortunate side effect of amplifying all of my emotions. It is vastly amusing to the part of me that is not envolved with the emotional roller coaster; it remembers all the times I've been accused of being a cold emotionless robot.I'm relatively new to Instructables (about 2 months), but in that time it had become a big part of my daily life, and I didn't realize how much it had imbedded itself into my unacknowledged goals until this update. You see, when I was first exploring the website, I found my way into the dark recesses of the contest archives, where I began to notice patterns. There were names that kept popping up again and again, often hidden down in the runner up section. Finally, my curiosity got the better of me and I clicked. And there, within the achievements page of Brooklyntonia and Not_Tasha, I found myself staring at a sea of contest achievement patches, glowing like tiny sunlit gems, each unique, branded with the heraldry indicating each patch's point of origin. The little icons covered the entire screen of my iPad mini, and I believe it was in that moment, though I didn't realize it at the the time, that the goal of having a page like theirs took hold of me. It wasn't lust or greed, but rather awe that such a beautiful thing was even possible, and I wanted to share in it.It grieves me that, POOF!, these pages of inspiration are gone and that the possibility of this newly formed passion has be ripped from my heart in its infancy, to be replaced with an impersonal counterfeit in the form of trophy icons clones.I felt disillusioned all weekend. I had feelings of fight or flight; I wavered from how can I rally people to revolt against this terrible tragedy, to I just need to walk away and forget this website. I questioned whether I had done something wrong to be so punished; Did I miss some beta version that I should have commented on? I tried to console myself with the fact that I could still earn metals, but became saddened anew when I couldn't find my comment count. I have been eyeballing that thing, slowly watching watching it climb, surprised that I've made any comments at all (I'm rather antisocial), and anticipating the day when I will get my silly little bronze metal. I felt adrift at sea, with no land in site, with nothing to grab on to, wrestling with these stupid feelings that I feel embarrassed for even having.So, all that to say, thank you for posting this. It gives me hope that maybe the comments count will reappear someday, and gives me some closure so that I can heal and move on. :) LOL - Seriously, I cried real tears. I can't wait to get off this blasted medication.
Sculpt a Solar Powered Water Feature
I think a Santa's Workshop Contest would be awesome.As makers, we often have lots of money sunk into tools, equipment, and materials that we could share to help others make special inexpensive handmade Holliday gifts that they would be proud to give. For example, while it might only cost me a few dollars to make a nice custom leather journal, my friends might have to pay upwards of $100 to get everything they need to make their first one. This would cost significantly more than just buying one already made. They might not need a whole bottle of dye or a whole package of snaps, but they would have to buy them and then store them. It would be inspiring to see others sharing their tools and knowledge, and interesting to see how people would overcome the challenges: how do you share equipment, configure work stations for a group, choose projects, divide material costs, etc.
No gold fish yet. The water feature is attracting tons of wildlife. I've caught all the critters that you might expect in a city like squirrels, birds and neighbor cats drinking from it, but I was surprised to find skunks and raccoons too! I had no idea they were around in the middle of Denver.
Thanks! I'm having a blue kind of day and your comment cheered me up :)
I am thoroughly impressed by this creation. My Applause.
Great Idea! I love how you locked them together with the caps and the water reuse bottle at the bottom. Well Done! :)
So I didn't actually read any of your Instructables, but from perusing your list, it looks like most of your Instructables revolve around making tools or organizing them. I don't WANT to make the bulk of your projects. I might NEED to make them to make something else I want to make, but it would only be as a means to some other ultimate end. But, I'm really glad you spent the time posting them, because I've mentally noted to go look at them should the need arise. From my analysis, my advise to you is to submit end game projects if you want to win. What can you make with your super awesome maker space that will not become part of it?
The two things like about the new layout are the ability to pick promoted items and I do like the activity feed, but I feel that we all would have been better served if these features we just incorporated into the old layout.
It might have been nice to receive some form of communication about the update.
How to make Rain Drawings with NeverWet superhydrophobic coating
I'm torn- there are some changes I really like, and some things I'm already grieving the loss of.
Sweetened condensed milk is the best for making emergency ice cream! I try not to keep ice cream in the house because I will eat it all, and then proceed to eat my husband's flavor, that only a day before I declared as gross (coffee ice cream = yuck).I love that there is no tempering the egg yokes (which I've never successfully done, btw, I always end up with micro scrambled egg chunks, double yuck), and there is no heating up a mixture to dissolve the sugar (Wrong Temperature Direction!), and waiting for it to cool.When I am in my "I must have Ice cream now at 2 in the morning" mood I usually put frozen berries, milk, and the sweetened condensed milk in the blender. The frozen berries start the freezing process before I even pop it into my ice cream machine.
When I was a kid, my mom would mix sweetened condensed milk with snow and add walnuts and vanilla, or sometimes crushed peppermints and call it "SnowCream". It was delicious after a long day of snow fort building.
I would be happy to judge Food, Living, Outdoor, and Play. I think Tech and Workshop are beyond me, for now at least. This site has been re-wiring my brain, getting me to think of new possibilities, and giving me the confidence to try new things. :)
Cable Terminals - High Current - for Off Grid Solar Batteries
And the music is fantastic! :)
Wow! These are impressive!
Perfect! I'm all about convertible things :)
Oooo... Me too!
Thanks for posting this! I didn't know about the carve and fill technique before :)
Perks of Being a Wallflower Leather Redesign
What a fun idea! I think I'm going to try it with those cheap 6 inch rolls of tulle instead of the lace. Will that work? Or do you think I need something thicker for support and reinforcement?
Leather National Parks Passport Stamp Journal
I love the worn look this has. Great project!
Ideas for Tiny Leather Scraps
Yum! I love meringue! And so cute too! I love that it is not mounds of frosting or fondant. This is the type of cake I actually want to eat. :)
Rustic woodland cake
Woodland Festival Crown
An idyllic home for some gold fish:)
Mini cupcakes to support the roses is genius! Love the tapestry look too!
Leather Growler Carrier
Thanks! I will be making this. Not only because it is awesome, but also to get my husband's giant growler out of the tiny kitchen cupboard, and instead hang it on the coat rack by the door.
Genius Idea! Though I'm probably too lazy to ever use this technique. Beautiful work! Love the blue and brown together.
Thank you for posting this! I never thought about weaving on top of knitting. It is a revelation! I'm always looking for projects where I can zone out a bit. I go to a knitting group every other week and I find it impossible sometimes to pay attention to the conversation and follow a pattern. So, the "endless stockinette stitch" appeals to me.I enjoyed the picture of your cat too. :)
