Sorry guys. I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. I was super busy over the holidays and just now I am catching up enough to craft and get back to being me. I should be participating more from here on out. I missed you all!

Prompt:  Red Alert - I will go down with this ship (corrected, thanks Bunny1kenobi!)

Project Name: Outdoor cat snowbox
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My neighbor has two cats that pretty much live in my yard. She lets them in the house but I cant because I already have cats indoors and they dont really get along. We are expecting a huge snow storm and I wanted to make sure that the outdoor cats have a place to go in case they dont get inside. Last year I made an insulated tube for them and brought that out but wanted to throw something else out there just in case any other animals needed a place out of the snow. I made this out of an Amazon box. I left one of the flaps out as a little roof and another to block the wind. Hopefully putting it against the house will give it more protection. I covered the entire thing in two layers of extra thick trash bags on the outside to keep it from getting all soggy in the snow and put towels on the inside. It was a last minute idea to try to help any outdoor animals. Also, it looks sort of like a Borg Cube so I will go down with this ship for my love of animals.
Project Picture:

Love that you were willing to do this for your neighbor's cats.  I've been thinking that for the same problem, but my neighbor's just don't let their cats in.  It's so aggravating.  But in 2014, my car got out and I met a cat expert (literally) and there are a couple of things you might want to consider.  They need a second exit in case something tries to come in on them and they need to get out.  And the blankets can get damp from just regular moisture in the air and refreeze.  Hay is really better because it helps insulate.  I may actually get a dog house off CL for the cats and/or the possum that seems to live behind my house!

Research Project Name: Bathroom Countertop
Team: Wordy
Brief Description: I've been bathroom counter-less for over a year now. You can brush your teeth in one bathroom and bathe in the other bathroom. Luckily you can potty in both. I have tried everything to find something to fit our 1960s house. I am going for the atomic age, Jetson's look. I am going to try to use plywood, paint and glitter to replicate the glitter lam look of the past. I hope it works out because there are no current manufacturers who make laminate with any glitter finish. I can't find vintage stock which is probably because laminate is fairly brittle and needs to be kept climate controlled. I'd pick the first one but I also like the Formica Light Aqua Sequin, Camelia Sequin (for the other bathroom), and the Textolite Gold Nugget. I am guessing that real gold flake is what they used in the Textolite. I plan on trying it unless one of you glitter divas know of something better.


Here is the sink with Hudee ring, against the wallpaper.

I plan to edge it with a metal trim from one of these places. I just have to figure out if I want stainless or aluminum.

Have you checked with a Habitat for Humanity store in your area?  We have two in Nashville that each get different things.  One gets more counters than another so you may want to check with multiple.  Someone may be able to tell you if they ever get anything close to what you're looking for.  It might as least be the era style you're looking for.

3  Bracelet - Blue/Green Malachite? Beads in Beads: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: January 12, 2016 06:53:26 PM
This is a bracelet I just put together last night!  Yay one that didn't take me months to post!  I forgot to ask the friend I got the beads from for this what they were but maybe someone on here would know?  The little black spacers feel a little like lava rock, but I'm not positive on it.  When I googled, the closest thing for the green beads were malachite and the blue are similar to that as well.

5  Bracelet - Aurora Borealis Leaves & Lava Rock in Beads: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: January 12, 2016 06:37:52 PM
I actually put this bracelet together in June 2015, but never did get around to getting it posted on here.  A friend has done a few workshops at our local library, she also happens to work there.  She brings in five containers of beads and allows us to have at it.  I love sparkle, so of course these leaves got my attention right away when they were changing color in the light and then the lava rock just seemed to work best with them.

6  Concert Series (Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman) Ticket Scrapbook - semi pic heavy in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by NoShowJr on: May 09, 2015 06:56:09 PM
This is the product of several book making workshops over the past few years.  Last year, they had one for making "pocket" books.  The instructor had bits and pieces of various items we could use to cover chipboard as a front and back.  After I saw a Hatch Show Print, this idea actually popped into my head as we go to this concert series every year.  I hadn't gotten around to creating the books yet though.  I knew I wanted a hard cover/book board (from yet another class) instead of what we did for these books.  Eventually I do plan on going back and doing the previous years, but I wanted this one ready for 2015 for the inserts!  What I came up with is as follows....

Front cover with spine title for putting on a bookcase.

When you open the book, you go inside the Ryman Auditorium (where the series is held) from the stage view....

Inside the book...(Disclosure: I had to make copies of another ticket from this year to "hold the place" of the series tickets for when they come in as they aren't mailed out for at least a couple more weeks.)  Each page is using elements from the original Hatch Show Print to keep it uniform.  The only thing they didn't put on the HSP was the year.  Not sure why they never do that. 

The "inserts" in each pocket are a "journaling page" - to make notes after each show (because at some point, the shows start to run together like who surprised who on what show!), a photo (which is actually holding the place of actual concert photos from after each show - obviously won't have those in time to post this), and the ticket itself.  (As soon as those are available, I will post updates.  I promise.)

7  That's What She Said Stenciled T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: March 04, 2011 01:46:32 AM
As I said in my previous post ("Geek In The Pink...") this was done for a friend from high school.  This was actually the requested t-shirt that lead to the other.  I'm sure it's been done tons of times before by now but I actually think he used to use this phrase in high school which was long before "The Office" came out.  I saw one of these in an ad back in August though and told him I could make him one a lot cheaper and just as good.
If I'm remembering correctly, I used a pearl white soft paint on this one with a stencil that was a pain to cut out.  Font turned out nice, but not easy to deal with.  Ended up taking about an hour or so to do the cut outs for it in the end.  I remember having two white paints sitting there and I think I finally decided that the pearl would look prettier (even though it was for a guy).  I've already shipped them off to him so I can't look back at it.   Undecided
Thanks for looking!

8  Geek In The Pink (Jason Mraz) Stenciled T-Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by NoShowJr on: March 04, 2011 01:35:11 AM
A high school friend and I were talking about t-shirts and I volunteered to make him one.  That quickly turned into two when we were on the phone while I was shopping (AC Moore's $2 t-shirt sale) via phone and I found this pink.  He jumped all over the idea....as long as I was willing to come up with a design, make up the stencil, paint the shirt and eventually ship it to him.  All of which, I agreed to do.
I used a light pink soft paint with a freezer stencil.  It did take a couple of coats...but with working on two, I was able to switch back and forth.  I did learn - the hard way - that my little Tulip mini craft iron is NOT hot enough to iron freezer paper onto t-shirts.  Next time I will carry my heavier model.  (I had gone along with a friend to their office to utilize larger surfaces - thus the cubicle wall seen in the photo where I hung them to dry for the afternoon!)
Thanks for looking!
