Wax n' Wane posted a topic in Trixie's Tricks (Other Resources)Hullo, plush artists, veteran and novice alike! For the record, I'm not a plushie maker, but I had an idea that was born from a friend's discussion in material engineering. We all know that plushies are soft, fluffy, fuzzy, and just plain hug-able. However, because of this, they only have a vague rigidness, making it harder for them to be displayed anywhere else but a shelf. Remember my friend in material engineering? Here's where that comes in. I had an idea: what if plushies had a kind of "skeleton"? Now, when I say this, I mean a skeleton in the loosest terms, being a frame that has give to allow for flexibility. Needless to say, the first idea I had was "laminated wire" for the material. However, most metals for wire then to succumb easily to material fatigue, thus making the plushie fall back to the original problem it had in the first place. As for the application of such a skeleton, this would make the legs pose-able, such as folding the legs to make a "ponyloaf" position, I was wondering- how practical, if at all, is making such a skeleton when it comes to making plushies? Thanks, -Wane
I've been studying and doing a bit of research in financial planning lately. I've recently came across a lot of articles that claim that although going without using a credit card is more difficult and requires some planning and establishing good savings, it is a much better option than having to rely on credit card to cover your expenses. I am still no expert on the fundamental economics and finances that comes into play here, but that's why I decided to post this topic. To gather some of your thoughts. A good majority of the community here is composed of adults ranging from their early twenties to thirties, with a whole lot of experience in the economic world where balancing budget, personal finances, and savings is a real necessity. So I'd just like to know your guy's thoughts on using only cash as opposed to using credit cards or both. Like how does one balance that out? How do you handle your credit and finance?
