I'm the founder of the Lammily line of dolls which promote realistic beauty standards. I'm looking for a creative person who can make doll crafting videos like in the example below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdVSXVtDoaA If you're crafty, creative, and think you can make videos like this, please let me know! My email is email@example.com. The videos can be very wild, such as "How to Make a Doll Moon Landing".

I need to create a small, transparent dome (out of some sort of plastic or resin) that will be able to be glued to a flat surface. What materials are out there to make something like this (that I will be able to do as smoothly and evenly as possible)? It will need to be able to magnify an image underneath it. Sorry if I don't have enough details on what I am trying to do, I have never made something like this before so any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

I've been brainstorming Christmas ideas for my Dad. He's in the military, and is an avid hunter. I want to make something creative that can also be useful, and I keep coming back to these energy drink cans/metal bottles that I've been drinking lately. They look like this: http://swayzesghost.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/2-team-real-tree-energy-drink-aluminum-bottles_320632715918.jpg And I'm thinking it would be really cool if I somehow could mount a strap on them and find someway to make them useful as a holder for something... but what? My creativity is lacking here. Or maybe a lamp? What do you guys think? Any good ideas or links to similar projects?

Every morning I like to read my novel (while eating) and I don't like to squish the book flat down to read it. It streches the pages and sometimes seperates the binding. Can someone show me a stand up holder that can be used for any sizes of books or magazines that doesn't destroy both?

Next week we will be starting the SINGER Kids Crafts Contest!We want to see some awesome projects for kids or for kids to do that involve sewing. It can involve a needle and thread or a sewing machine, but most importantly it needs to be a fun project that a kid can do. To make it extra fun, SINGER is going to be putting up some awesome sewing machines as prizes. A sweet serger and some other sewing machines will be going out to those who make the best Instructables.UPDATE: To make the contest even bigger, we're going beyond crafts made by kids and also including crafts made for kids.

The mission of The Crafting for Charity Club is to assist other charitable organizations and nonprofit groups by providing craft skills education and organizing the creation of handmade arts and crafts. That being said, we have been asked to make craft kits and teach craft skills to bed ridden patients at a local hospital. This will be a long-term thing for us and we need as many ideas as we can get. Another thing we need to consider is projects for parents to work on with their kids. We've got the following ideas so far: scrapbook kits crocheting knitting card making embroidery/cross stitch making games jewelry We've been told we could even make playdough and silly putty! While we have general ideas, we could use as much help as we can get for specific instructions. This isn't something we're going to sell these things, they are purely for use in charitable purposes. That being said, we will likely post our patterns in our members only section of our website.

Hi, Thanks for any help you can provide in advance! I'm hosting a small get together and wanted to give my friends (30 somethings) something to make together so they can each take it home and remember the evening (i.e., not food, something that would last). I'm looking for something we can do that is easy and relatively quick and suitable for boys and girls. Thanks!
