11:00 am - Hey cool kids.
Alright, so I have a really stupid problem, so don't beat me up for asking.

When painting on a tee shirt and using a stencil, should I use brushes or what? Maybe a paint pen?

I just messed up a black shirt while trying to stencil on some sic gun with hot pink paint. So I feel dumb.

Any ideas?

This isn't exactly DIY but I didn't know where else to ask. =/

I washed my beloved Nirvana hoodie today and the drawstring from inside the hood got pulled out... I knew this would happen sooner or later but I have no idea how to thread the string back through, I was wondering if anyone here that has made their own hoodie or has had a similar problem had any tips?

Thanks. ♥

07:45 pm - Submission for Zine
This is on this comm. because...er, I'm crafting a zine.

While gathering ideas for a personal zine, I suddenly came upon an idea to make a zine compiled of input from other people. All based on this:

Describe your first kiss.

If you don’t remember your first-first kiss, you can describe the first one you remember. You can even just describe the first kiss that was memorable. You can submit more than one—the first kiss that ended up being pretty bad and the first one that meant something. I’m looking for a variety: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Or the just plain silly. Setting, mood, description—all lovely. If you’re uncomfortable with having your name attached, you can ask to be anonymous. All my comments are screened too.

To the never-been-kissed (translation: like you’re me): Where would you like you first kiss to be? What would it be like?

07:52 pm - Prison Shirt
Hey, dolls! I was wondering if anybody had any of the following:

a) Pictures of the guys from the band my chemical romance holding something out in front of them with both hands (a sign, or art or something like that). Particulary looking very grim (its okay if they aren't, though).

b) MCR's heights in inches.

Why you ask? I'm making a t-shirt that says "You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison" on it, and I plan to photoshop pictures of each of the 5 boys so it looks like their standing in front of one of those striped walls with heights on it, holding those signs with numbers on it that you always see onthe news when they show prisoners or on shows like csi.

12:25 pm - Anonymous Submissions for a Zine
Okay, this relates, because it's for a zine project, which is DIY. (Phew, I made it work! Really though, I'm just trying to get a lot of different submissions for this to make it as diverse as possible.)

Sooooo, if you have a spare minute or so and would like to anonymously contribute to a zine I'm working on, it would be very much appreciated.
