Here's a thread to show off your handiwork, of any kind.

 

Here's my latest, some paneling attached to the living room wall.

Oh my word that looks really spiffy, James! What did you use as paneling?

Funny thing, it's actually floor tile. My wife got the idea somewhere. The tiles are sticky-backed and easy to work with. At first we thought they could just stick on the wall, but they fell off after a few hours, so I nailed them up with a few panel nails.

 

I still need to attach some moulding on the edges and ceiling to cover up slight imperfections, but I'm waiting for her to decide what she wants. I'm sure that will run along the lines of...

 

"What do you want for this?"

 

"I want X."

 

(Mentally calculate the price of X, decide I can afford it.)

 

"Okay, we'll do X."

 

"Great! And as long as we're doing X, let's also do Y, Z, and maybe A, B, and C, also! Won't that look nice?"

 

(Inwardly groan.)

Cool thread idea! Got a load of stuff I could share from my phone but can't work out how to add images directly into DM any more and haven't uploaded them online as of yet! 

 

It's the one kind of image posting that's easy for me on new DM.

 

im on iOS, using safari.

 

when I click in the reply box, I get a link to add files (see pic). I click that and it lets me choose my photos on phone or tablet. 

 

I choose the photos with a tap, click done, they upload automatically and I save the post and they're there.

I made this simple gift for my wife. I took a page from the classic romance Pride and Prejudice, and added a beloved line from one of the movies made from that novel. (In that respect, this might be called 'mixed media'. Heh.)

 

I hope she likes this for Valentine's Day.

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
