12  Faerie Bed and Twig Faerie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by gozer on: July 13, 2015 07:13:43 AM
 I'm not sure if I have this in the right spot. Sorry if I don't! I don't normally make miniatures but decided to give it a shot and joined the miniature swap. I made this for my partner who is decorating a fairy house. I realized I wasn't that talented at paper crafting for the swap so I tried to sew for it since I am more comfortable with that.
 
 I used sticks from my yard and I wrapped wire and twine around it to keep it together. Then I glued and tied flowers and moss to it.

 Then I made a little mattress and was so excited because it was the first time I used the fancy stitches on my machine. LOL!

 I made a little patchwork quilt and pillows along with a Twig faerie to enjoy it. You can see the headboard a little better in this pic.

 Admittedly the fairy ended up looking like a creeper but I was aiming for a twig.  Undecided

 I hope my partner liked it. I had a lot of fun making it!

13  Re: Pendant Swap Round 5 in The Swap Gallery by gozer on: July 10, 2015 02:53:38 PM
 I received from Bunny1kenobi today and she did not disappoint! I love both of them so much.
 First up I got this galaxy looking pendant I was eyeing over in the Games. I love the colors!

 It's raining here and dreary so I will swap out these photos for brighter ones if I can get them this weekend. It doesn't do it justice with how pretty it is.
 Then she surprised me with this amazing piece! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chain part. It's SO pretty! She knows I love those little roses. She put it together so beautifully with the key, cameo, sprocket and roses. Amazing job Bunny1kenobi. I LOVE it!!!!

Project Name: Birdhouse Pendants
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439938.0
Brief Description:  I have always loved the look of these pendants but thought the roof would be hard to cut. Then it hit me, Sculpey! I think they turned out cute. I used actual Dictionary pages for the outside and there was a funny accident on Bunny1kenobi's. I didn't notice til I was sealing it and laughed WAY to hard about it.  Either the threatening text on the back or all the glue holding it together could be the hidden element. I am going with the hidden message. Ha!
Project Picture:

I was using nice and inspirational word on the fronts.

I didn't pay attention to the back. Yep, Beat a Person in bold print. LOL!

Project Name: Dictionary Necklaces
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439940.0
Brief Description: I had to use books somehow in my Team Prompt. I love the Dictionary necklaces and decided to make them. The cat one didn't get enough sealer so the glue soaked thru but that was okay since it was for myself anyways. The Love one is for the Team Wordy August prize and I plan to make another one to go inside the Ellie bag in the Game Prizes.

 PS. I added the Community post to my Starstuff Prompt on page 24. I'll wait until they are posted form now on so it's not so confusing. Sorry!

15  Dictionary Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 10, 2015 07:09:20 AM
 I tried to make the dictionary text pendants but I don't think I sprayed the large one with enough sealer. It's okay cas that was the one for myself. I wasn't sure if anyone else was as proud of their cat lady status as I am.  Tongue


 I still think it looks interesting. It has a more vintage and aged feel to it. Yeah, that's what I will go with.  Wink
 I used dictionary pages printed on cardstock and Distressing ink.
 
 Thanks for looking.  Grin

16  Glowing Star & Steampunk Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 10, 2015 07:01:29 AM
 I recently finished up the Pendant swap and wanted to share what I made.
 A while ago I made couple Steampunk Pendants out of Sculpey and decided to try it with another shape so I chose Stars!


 The backgrounds glow in that dark but I couldn't get a decent picture of it.
 Here are the ones I made earlier. They glow too.

 I tried tinting them with chalk but in the end likes the look of alcohol inks better on them.

17  Birdhouse Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 10, 2015 06:52:41 AM
 I always want to wear more necklaces in the summer since I don't have a scarf covering them up. I joined the pendant swap this round and this is one of the designs I decided to try. I have always loved the birdhouse pendants but thought cutting the roofs would be cumbersome and a pain. I found the squares with holes and pegs at Michaels and decided to try using Sculpey to make the roof. I think it turned out pretty cute and saved my fingers from some unwanted bloodletting.
 Here are the fronts

 and the backs

 I love the look of Dictionary pages in artwork and wanted to use inspirational and nice words on them.

 While I was doing the clear coat I realized what this one said on the back. It was completely random so it made it so much funnier to me. Yes, It reads "beat a person" in bold text no less.  Roll Eyes

 Here's a shot of how I made them taller. I glued, painted and sanded them before adhering the dictionary pages.

 Thanks for checking them out. I had a lot of fun making them and suspect a couple family members might get some for Christmas.

 I had such a productive weekend but most was for swaps. I can't wait for them to receive so I can post up! Grin

Project Name: Books and Cats
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439879.0
Brief Description: This purse encompasses me completely. Books, cats and sewing. Could I get any geekier? It would be hard. I knew I had to have this fabric the second I saw it.  Tongue

19  Books and Cats in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: July 06, 2015 08:18:49 AM
  Remember that commercial where the pig goes "and boots and pants and boots and pants....." I think of it and say books and cats every time I see this fabric. LOL!
 I made this purse as my quick weekend outing purse. I can just throw a couple thing in it and go instead of digging thru all the day to day stuff I carry around.
 I had to have this fabric when I saw it. It's so dorky and I love it. Books and cats. Two things I love and can't live without. Add in a little sewing and it pretty much sums me up. Big ol' nerd.

I was cropping the pic of the back and laughed when I realized my black cat Dahl had stuck her nose in. She's black so you have to look hard at the black chair. She camouflages well.  Wink

 Here in an in progress shot of the inside pocket.

 and just one to show off my other cat, Venkman.  Tongue

 Thanks for looking!  Grin

Project Name: Steampunk Gear Pendants
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I made these last month and held on to them in case there was a prompt they would fit and wa-la. There is one! I would normally chose aliens because I am ALL about aliens but the gears and sprockets of a robot worked for these pendants.
