1  tabletop meditation area in Completed Projects by SheridanLA on: October 29, 2009 08:40:38 AM
I completed this for a craft swap (eastern religions) and was really happy without it all turned out.

I started with two shadow boxes and painted them with a medium red, then drew on the Bodhi tree and Ohm symbol - then painted them with gold and bronze paints. The Bodhi tree is based on part of a Thai tapestry. The dots were made with q-tip in gold paint.

The mala is made from simple polished stone beads, the focus and guru beads a larger size... the Buddha was purchased in Chinatown.

(the flash made this more orangy then it is....)

Thanks for the comments.. I really was in love with the goodies I sent out. I was glad to have the catalyst for finally making something I have had in my head a long time. Cheesy

Now, onto my awesomeness from JmisSister!!

So I opened this box to find three gorgeous trays, the two (sadly broken) necklaces, a tiny portable meditation box with a Buddha charm in it. I absolutely love the colors and the artwork.

here is a closeup of one of the trays. It has these wonderful little buttons on it.

Here is the larger box with my cool necklace suffering from the aftereffects of the post office Sad

Thank you for my wonderful package and for being such a great partner, JmisSister!!

3  Travel caddy/tote/in-flight entertainment center in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SheridanLA on: October 22, 2009 08:26:36 PM
So I had no idea where to post this, but it is a project I made that carried things and held things on my recent European trip, so I am putting it in this area...

I made this bad boy to help keep me entertained and have all my "ohmigawd this is a long freakin flight and I am getting BORED" items in one place. I did a bit of googling and saw something like this on a travel site, but the one that I was keen on was not available yet.. and the one they did have in stock was just overkill.

They were also boring black.

I like black, but I am so tired of all travel items being either black, red or beige *yawn*

After analyzing what I like and disliked about what was out there, I decided to make up my own in-flight entertainment center based on what I like to bring with me on long flights....So here we go:

Here is it folded up.. it is a little bigger then a notebook (hold magazines easily)

Next we open it up....oooh! things to DO!!

There is a slot for my iPhone to watch movies at eye level, pocket for a paperback or other goodies, another little pocket for whatevah

Look! I can watch a movie at eye level.. and not have to hold it Cheesy

Here it is hanging on the back of the chair (pretend we are on a plane, I forgot to take pics of it in action on the flight. )

then open hanging on the chair in front of me.

there is a velcro loop to hang the headphones on. the bottom flap holds magazines and then folds up and secures out of the way so you can lower a tray table for dinner. There is another pocket behind the iPhone pocket that holds more magazines, etc. I also have another small pocket for the ipod.

I lined it with stiff interfacing to give it some body and extra stability, but not so much that this things can't be folded into a suitcase or carry on pocket. It is cotton and totally washable. Cheesy I made it to originally attach to the tray table when it is upright, but that was too low, so I placed it on the back of the seat in front of me instead. I was in coach on an older plane and there was not one of those screens on the back of the seat in front of me, so this did not cover any of the airline provided entertainment.

It totally made the 9+hour fight more comfy and entertaining.

Emong is back safe and sound. He had such fun and has been bragging about his adventures all day. He is so excited that everyone wrote in his travel journal and took such great care of him.

here is a group shot.. I have had a mega long day, so I will try to take some other close-up photos later - but wanted to share the images with everyone ASAP.

and his little cactus souvenir from Arizona has been swiped by Jack the Cat and its whereabouts are unknown (I am thinking under the couch) little bugger. So it is not in the photo.

Isabelle has arrived safe and sound. She had a big day her first day in Los Angeles... she got to help on a shoot we were doing.

First, she helped organize props.

Then Andrea welcomed her and then showed her a nice place to sit amongst the wheat grass.

After relaxing a bit and getting comfy, we put her on set for her own photo shoot. She was great in front of the camera.

We are going to see what adventures we can have this week. I am introducing her to my cat and my fish now. Cheesy
