How Long Does Spray Paint Take To Dry Out?
Heya! I have a bunch of spray paint sitting at home from former crafts I used to do. I haven't used it in a year, and it is unlikely that I'll be moving back to the states anytime soon to use it. The first question is: how long does it take for spray paint to dry out? The second question is: do you know of anywhere I could donate it (if it is still good)? Preferably in the Bay Area?

Decluttering - TAKEN
I am decluttering in my studio and its likely that this process may take a while. I will be posting things as I have them ready to go. I am only asking for postage in return. Most things will be in assorted bunches and I am not planning to separate them out.

Currently I have about a shoebox worth of assorted cards and game pieces including but not limited to... loteria cards, mini poker chips, scrabble tiles, playing cards, chess pieces, etc.

In the future I will have a whole bunch of other things like fabric scraps, books, tins, beads etc.

If anyone is interested please let me know!

Internet Freedom at stake!

Last year, more than 1.5 million Americans contacted Congress and stopped phone and cable company efforts to kill Net Neutrality. Now industry lobbyists are pressuring the Federal Communications Commission to abandon this fundamental Internet freedom.

It's time the FCC heard from you. The agency has launched a public inquiry into whether it should protect Net Neutrality or let cable and phone companies dictate which Web sites you can use. Take action now and help stop the big phone and cable companies again. As of today, there are SIX DAYS LEFT to tell the FCC to protect Internet freedom.

Please help! Click here.

Braille pages
Clearing out cupboards at MPOW (public library) I found an old Braille book and I shoved it back in the cupboard for a few weeks while I thought about what to do about it... and then I found this community.

It's actually Vol. 7 of 11 volumes of Ship of Fools by Katherine Ann Porter, and the rest of the volumes have vanished, so it's really of no use to anyone as a book. I'd be glad to break it up into 10- or 20-page bundles unless someone specifically wants the whole book. *edit* The pages are 11" square, btw!

My LJmail redirects to my work mailbox, so send me an address that way and I'll hit the post early next week.

I can imagine all sorts of altered book fun with these that I don't have time to develop myself. :-(

Reuse and Recycle: The Art and Craft of the Repurposed--Call for Entries
Feed Your Head Books, a radical book and zine shop located in Salem, MA, will be hosting an art exhibit in December/January entitled "Reuse and Recycle." The aim of this project is two-fold: to educate the public about recycling and conserving resources and to inspire artists to think outside the box and be creative with their materials. All forms of art and craft will be accepted; the only guideline is that the work must in some way incorporate recycled materials--this can range as broad as transforming the original purpose of an item to incorporating found materials into artwork. Be creative! Entries/proposals must be submitted to randie@feedyourheadbooks.com by November 1, 2006.

Freecycle Alternative :: GigoIt!

I am writing to invite you to be a tester for our Freecycle Alternative, Non-Profit Company. We are currently looking for ALPHA and BETA testers for our new website. Here is everything you should need to know to see if you might be interested.

Thanks again!


Individuals and organizations are regularly faced with the problem of deciding what to do with items that still may be useful but that they no longer want. They can also find themselves suddenly in need of an item without being financially capable of purchasing it. GigoIt, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded in Saint Louis, Missouri. We are currently developing a free public web space for individuals and corporations to donate and receive unwanted items within their neighborhoods. This keeps useful products out of landfills and fosters community involvement.


* A single account to use nationwide. Access GigoIt services wherever you are.

* Results tailored to the proximity of a zip code that you specify.

* Communication filtering. Users may control the medium and frequency of messages.

* Search by category, date range, item status, photo inclusion and much more.

* Individual or Organization accounts. GigoIt is tailored to be convenient to all parties.

* No Moderators. The site is maintained organically by its users.

* GigoIt Rating System. To promote user trust and responsibility.

* Local Service portal. If GigoIt isn’t your donating solution, we’ll help you find what is.

Users are our focus. Research, focus groups, and our own experiences have fueled the development of and ideas behind GigoIt thus far. We believe that our site should be grown by the people who will be using it, and the users will heavily impact the direction and services GigoIt will provide.


We feel very strongly that our site should be grown by the people who will be using it. For this reason, we are asking for your input as we begin development with our site. Visit http://www.GigoIt.org and click the "Signup to be a part of GigoIt" link on the bottom of the page.


ALPHA TESTING: August 1st, 2006
BETA TESTING: October 1st, 2006
COMPLETION: January 1st, 2007

i've got a gaggle of fine quality books that want new homes!
i broke them up into odd groupings for easier parusing. it is not an absolute if you want some of them that they need be in these combo's. it was just easier to organize and photograph them this way. (or it was ocd)

some of them are hardcover, all of the softcovers are trade size (larger than mass market/dime novel size) and all are in excellent condition as they were mostly only around for art reference. some of them contain nudity and other bare human things like that.

if you'd like more info about them or would like to adopt any of them, please let me know (how to contact & address to send to) either on this post or by emailing me at : thesnark@earthlink.net

first come, first serve. i'll update the list so you'll know which ones are spoken for. no doubt for cost effectiveness, i'll ship them flat rate priority. no need to pitch in for shipping unless you absolutely feel the need to do so.

books are your friends.
the camera is not, so the pictures aren't the best. sorry!

Because everyone loves free stuff
Welcome to Geeklings and Nerdlets.

The main purpose of this group is to freecycle. "What is a freecycle?" you may ask. Let me explain it to you. Do you have old hardware, software, painting supplies, books (fiction, n on-fiction, and academic), or other random things lying around your house that you cannot get rid of? Well freecycling is giving it away. Basically, you post something that you want to give away or something you are interested in having. BAsically, people come pick up all your old junk that you want to give away. You are NOT permitted to try to sell things. I will have a seperate group for selling.

This is a virtual community for the computer nerds, book worms, comic book nerds, D&D freaks, The RPG obsessed, the people who thinks that life is just a realistic MMORPG. It is for math, music, science, movie, gaming, and every other geek in between.

This is a place where you do not have to question, "Is my geek showing?" It's okay, release your inner geek!

want stuff?
I've got far too much stuff, and not much cash to pay shipping, thus I ask that if you do not reside in the US, please be prepared to throw in a bit towards shipping costs if you're interested in any of the printed materials- there's no international media rate, and I'm dirt broke. Email me at spikienoir@yahoo.com if interested, I flake on checking LJ quite frequently so DO NOT be angry if I miss your reply here. At the bottom, below the cut, is a list of things I'd be happy to swap you for.
Mad and other parody mags, first day cover stamps, vintage video games, and assorted collage-able materialsCollapse )

I have been cleaning out my studio and have found a whole heap of supplies that need a new home. It's all free, I just ask that who ever wants these things covers the cost of postage from Melbourne, Australia.

Right, so I have lots of acrylic paints, tissue paper, A3 Art folders, beads, paint brushes, sequins, ribbons, charcoal, scrap paper, crayons, cardboard, etc. I also have a huge stack of fashion magazines and cardboard magazine holders, plus a massive bag full of strange medical supplies (needles, masks, gauze, sharps container, tubes, IV bag, etc) that some photographers might find useful.

If you are interested or need any more information just leave a comment or email me: cherryvanilla at livejournal.com

Free stuff...
Here's a slightly weird one for you... Perhaps a crafter/artist/creative/etc. would like some (all?) of these?

I have one bag full of orthodontic elastics. What I mean to say is, I have one large ziplock bag full of many, many, many (90!!!) little bags of orthodontic elastics. 3/8 inch. "heavy." that ugly semi-translucent color of orthodontic elastics.

Purchased circa 2001... doubt they'd be good for holding one's orthodontics together. But, perhaps you might be able to use them for... ummm... art? crafts? hair-things (beware tangles!)? something else that I am sure I haven't thought of?

Each small bag (remember, I have ninety of them!) contains about 100-ish elastics. Oooh! I found a picture!

Do you want any of these little bags? Let me know...

i have a ton of pharmaceutical brochures, flyers, posters, etc. for ephemera collectors. im not sure if this counts as true ephemera, since my understanding is that it is supposed to be something dated, like a ticket stub or newspaper, but if anyone wants it, i have a ton and get tons more every day.

it has cool words like migraine, erectile, bladder, herpes, etc. and photos of funny generic looking all american people.

Wood Stuff for free
Hey there everyone recovering from the holidays and ready to begin spring cleaning?

I'll probably have a bunch of stuff throughout the year but the first thing I have is an envelope full of wooden stars and small clothespins.

Can anyone use these?
