1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / CHALLENGE 102 ENTRIES / Beaker Cross Stitch on: September 04, 2014 01:01:49 PM


I made this Beaker hoopla for whitterp during our recent Disney Swap.

I based the design off an image I found on google which I imported into PCStitch, added the black cross stitch outline, and blended or simplified the color changes.



Beaker was stitched on a glittery gray evenweave aida, stitched over two squares. I think he's really cute. My son has already made a request for him and I might make one for my nephew.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Grandma's Rosary on: August 26, 2014 10:38:23 AM


I just finished making my grandma's rosary.



I spelled out all her children's names in the rosary beads which wasn't a small task getting all ten names in the five sections. I put two names in each section of the decades, no spaces. Small hematite balls were placed on each side of the letter and heart cube beads on the headpin. Extra chain was used to separate the five sections.

I know she is just going to love it. I'm happy with how it turned out. My husband said he's jealous and wants one with our kids' names. So do I!
3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 101 ENTRIES / Glitterblast cameo with a candy sprinkles resin Cabochon on: August 05, 2014 09:01:17 AM


For this challenge, I decided to use up the remaining resin from my EasyCast resin kit. Originally, I was disappointed with resin because my molds did not cure during the fall. I had to throw out my bangle mold but using a little fingernail polish remover, I was able to keep the oval, circular, rectangular, and heart shape molds.

Looking through my findings bins, I found some tarnished bezel I've been holding onto. I strayed a cameo bezel with red spray paint and red glitterblast.



For the cabochon, I used clear resin and candy sprinkles. I poured a small portion of resin into the oval mold, poured sprinkles and added more resin. Fortunately, it cured properly, and I was able to file down any access resin and fit it into the cameo. I used e-6000 glue to attach the cabochon onto the cameo. 

I'm very happy with how it turned out. It is a little unusual for me but I look forward to wearing the chunky piece because you cannot go wrong with sprinkles and glitter.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / This little piggie on: May 14, 2014 04:26:54 PM
Jumped rope...


I finished this tiny little cross stitch design from the World of Cross Stitch magazine. After I finished stitching on the 14 count aida, I used a staple gun to wrap it around a 3x3 canvas square. Now, I finally know what to do with all the tiny things I want to stitch!
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / kids craft swap on: May 11, 2014 09:11:19 AM


For the past two summers, I've been organizing a summer kids' craft swap where the children are grouped with other children around their age to make things for each other. It is a 5 point swap. One large or medium is made with the assistance of an adult.

My kids look forward to it each year. Since there were so many snow days, my kids won't be out of school until the first week of June. What dates are others interested in? I'm thinking we need about a month of crafting time.

Here was last year's Kids Craft Swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423853.0#axzz2WijJusXY

This is a really fun swap and gives me the opportunity to introduce my boys to new crafts. It is really neat to see what the kids come up with for each other.

It was funny; the other day, my boys were in the bedroom playing with their pom pom ball angry bird set and i-spy container that their partners made, my youngest still talks about the friends he's made, and the teachers have gotten really familiar with my oldest's favorite shirt, a handpainted Fluffy, made by another partner.

Let me know if there is an interest and what dates are available for you. Also, I may need a co-organizer since I'm taking some courses this summer.
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Washi Tape Cookie Cutter Ornament on: May 02, 2014 06:07:31 PM
After being inspired by a pinterest pin, I finally know what to do with some of the oversize cookie cutters I've been hording.


I love collecting cookie cutters but some are so big that I don't really use them when I bake because the dough expands and loses the original cutter shape. So, I have about a dozen cutters sitting in a drawer that I original thought would make an interest wreath but when I put them together, the interest shapes were not noticeable.

Instead, I made these neat washi tape wrapped ornaments which I absolutely love. I used two different patterned washi tape rolls for each cutter. I folded the washi tape around the sharp side of the cutter by cutting little slits so the tape would fold in the corners flat.





So simple and fun!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Busy Stitching on: April 23, 2014 07:12:12 PM
When participating in the places hoopla swap, I decided to make Chameleon Hound a wild west theme hoop. I picked up Stitcher's Revolution: Wild West iron-on transfer and selected a neat little moonshine design. My husband, the western novel writer, approved of the design.



For pinkmichk, I decided to use the Down the Rabbit Hole theme. I had so many ideas. A spiral with a rabbit at the end, a close up of Alice following the rabbit, Alice falling. But I thought those ideas had more to do with the characters so I thought about the rabbit hole as a place. I kept seeing a keyhole in my head, like someone looking through a window to a whole new place, almost a portal. Here is what I came up with.



The tight satin stitches were a little tricky for me, so I used the unicorn hoop I received from Onyxnox.




I made this cute little scissors fob for my facebook swap friend. It's a little sawdust filled pincushion made of aida. The ribbon can be looped around a pair of scissors.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / She-Ra Belt on: April 17, 2014 06:44:48 AM
My husband bought some pants that included a belt that he didn't want and crazyda79 sent me some She-Ra ribbon that I've been saving for a fun project. I put the two together to make a fun accessory.


It was surprisingly simple. I sewed the ribbon onto the belt at the top and bottom. I cut the belt to size and folded and hemmed in the fraid edge. I probably should have used a matching thread but I'm still happy with it.
