151  Re: Personalized Coloring Books - Christmas Idea in Winter Holidays by HippieKender on: November 06, 2007 06:21:05 PM
When I first saw this, I thought it was cute.  I also found out that I have picked my cousin's 3 yr old daughter for a grab bag gift.  I decided to see what I could come up with.  I ended up using 2 different programs to get the result I wanted.  This is what I got:

Now I don't think it's cute ... I think it's an amazing idea!  Thank you so much for this idea!!

I may also have to make one for my kids, too!  Cheesy  They have been stealing my test images and coloring and painting on them.

152  Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel... in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by HippieKender on: October 31, 2007 01:39:42 PM
A friend of mine asked me to make him a dreidel.  I have never seen a dreidel before (except maybe on TV), so this was a challenge for me.  I knew I wanted to make it out of polymer clay, so I went searching for a tutorial.  I didn't find one that I liked.  I ended up finding a paper print-out that you can cut out and glue together.  I used that as a template to cut out the different sides.  Then I folded it up, taped it shut and stuffed it with aluminum foil.  This gave the sides some stability and also saved some clay making the whole thing lighter.  I really like how it turned out, though these pictures don't do it justice.  I also tested it, and it spins fairly well.  Much better than I had originally thought.  I do think the spinner is a little long, and if I make more dreidels, I will make it shorter.
I just hope the letters are correct!  Cheesy
