1  I just got several FREE pad suits for costume making!! (AUSTIN) in Texas: Central by thegracklegirl on: November 17, 2008 10:23:18 AM
I want to pass this on to anyone here who is into making costumes or mascots. This is very cool!

There is a listing on Austin Freecycle for these. I picked up a few today. A very nice lady has about a dozen more of these in storage and is giving them away. They are the kind that give you the belly shape and zip up the back. The sizes are smaller/medium, medium and large.



I've seen these kind of pads retail for $70-$90 new. So this is very generous of her to give these away. They are gently used and in good shape.

Contact me for her email address.


note: I posted this under Cityguides, Central Texas. Didn't realize it would make the front page scroller for all regions. Sorry about that!

2  My first stained glass project in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by thegracklegirl on: March 02, 2008 04:16:59 PM
I took a three-hour course at a local stained glass supply store and learned the basics. I was sent home with a very simple project to complete, but I decided to go my own way and create my own design.



I think I like it better on this side:




Hey, it's not perfect, but it's a start! This is a lot of fun! But I did manage to burn my finger with the soldering iron Roll Eyes and a couple of tiny cuts here and there. When I get polished enough at this, there is a vertical window by my door where I would love to display a long whimsical piece. Someday...

3  A new look to vintage barstools in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by thegracklegirl on: March 01, 2008 06:47:23 PM
My MIL gave us five barstools that are very old. Back in the 1920's, my DH's grandfather bought three of them from an old tavern after it closed (so they may be 100 yrs old for all we know), and he then built two more to match. In the 60's my MIL reupholstered and painted them. So there is a lot of history behind these barstools.

Here is a before pic of one of them:






And here are some after pics. The blue looks brighter in the pic but it's more toned down:



I love this fabric! I have some leftover that I may make a purse with.

4  Bakin' Poo in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thegracklegirl on: March 01, 2008 11:26:25 AM
I saw a post here recently where someone had created a little polymer turd, but I can't find it now. It made me laugh because four months ago I created a little "christmas poo."


My husband walked into my art shop one early morning and asked what I was up to and I told him "I'm bakin' poo!" and pointed to the oven. He laughed soooo hard when he saw this little character.


We made him a part of our annual Christmas village scene. Mayor McPoo stood on the tallest building, ruling the village.

I then made the mayor a wife! Hey, even turds get lonely...


This was the silliest thing I've created with polymer, but I figure since someone else posted their turd, I would too!! Smiley

5  My very first polymer clay project! (with photos now) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thegracklegirl on: February 28, 2008 07:59:40 AM
And my first post here on crafter. My MIL collects santa claus dolls, so I made her one for christmas. His look is more wizard-like to set him apart from the others she has. I'm a bird lover so I had to include a cute little cardinal.

This was FUN to create!  And a learning experience.
