25  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES / scrapbook for mom on: July 05, 2008 07:37:36 PM
So I really wanted to participate in this, but I couldn't figure out who my childhood hero was.  Today during my lunch break from work i was sitting in my car and it hit me, my mom has always been my hero!  She went behind my dad's back to have me (she wanted children, he didn't, so she took matters into her own hands), has been there for me through everything and loves me so much it drives us both crazy sometimes.  I'm spoiled rotten by her (i dont mind much) and shes taught me everything I needed to know in life (how to put on makeup, how to sled, cook, sew, make cards, etc.)  I have her temper, taste in music, and i'm basicially a mini her.  So anyway, I think it was last mother's day i decided i wanted to make a mini scrapbook for her of pictures of us, so i did, and we both loved it.  here is the cover

and you open the front to this. the pull out tag says "mom, thank you for everything you do for me.  without you i dont know how i would live.  daddy knows nothing about being a girl!  so on this mother's day sit back, relax, and always remember:  its my job to drive you crazy!  --karen"

the second page is just a cool wallpaper i had. i  cut out some of the parts of it (chili peppers, onions, bowl) and put foam underneath so they stuck out off the page.  the tag is quotes on vellum over the same wall paper.  the quotes are "parents were invented to make children happy by giving them something to ignore.-ogden nash"... "Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining it to them.-antoine de saint"... "humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs.-p.j. o'rourke"

my mom used to dress me up like her babydoll, buying these really pricy beautiful clothes and everyone laughed at her because i always had "the best clothes" in the words of my aunts. the truth shows in the pic.  the pull out tab has these quotes on it:  "they say that blood is thicker than water.  maybe that's why we battle our own with more energy and gusto than we would ever expend on strangers-david assael"... we fight a lot  Smiley because of the irish tempers "sooner or later we all quote our mothers - bern williams"..."my mother had a lot of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.-mark tawian"

these pics are from a photo booth my mom and i went to in... kings island i think... it might have been cedar point... the tab says:  "god could not be everywhere at once and therefore he made mothers.-anon"..."mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children-william makepeace thackeray"..."I am not young enough to know everything.-oscar wild"..."children today are tyrants.  they contradict their parent, gobble their food, and tyrannize their teachers.-socrates"..."all women become like their mothers.  that is their tragedy.  no man does.  that is his. -oscar wilde"

i actually remember my dad taking this pic.  for about a decade my family would go up north to our cabin in the winter, and mom and i would go sledding.

the last page ties the first together (note the dragon flies and butterflys).

and then this is the back cover.  it matches the front and i really like the paper so i decided to take the pic in case you didn't catch the paper on the front over Smiley


i know its kind of crude, but i did it all by hand in one afternoon and my mom loves it so I dont mind the messy-ness.  it fits me anyway Smiley

so where can i get the pattern?  or would it be best to sketch it out for myself?
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / mother's day picture on: May 15, 2008 01:01:10 PM
mom loves it when I needle-point so I thougth this would be perfect.  It says "Parents who feel they are lucky in their children usually have children lucky in their parents."



and my favorite party, the ladybugs!!!

29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / family rosary, so to speak... on: May 15, 2008 12:46:48 PM
after my grandmother died I wanted to make something to remember her and my other family members who have died by.  I went to the store and bought beads that closely corresponded to birth (and death) stones.  That was October.

Now I have lots of beads and nothing really to do with them, plus a few charms, so I decided to make a rosary.  I threaded the beads onto some really flimsy string and then wound gold wire around both the string and the beads (to make it less floppy).  I usually don't like mixing metals, but I like the effect for this.  Each color represents a different birth or death:
Great-grandma was born and died in march so thats light blue (aquamarine).
Grandpa was born in february (amethyst a.k.a. purple) and died in may (emerald, green).
Grandma was born in september (sapphire or dark blue) and died in october (opal, or the see through beads on the body of the rosary.  i couldn't really find opal beads, but these throw off different colors if you rotate them in your hands so...)
Here is the finished project:
 
the Charms in the place of the "our fathers" in the body also represent a different person.  The indian bear reminds me of my grandfather, the angel my grandmother.

the other angel also represents my grandmother because i had an extra angel and this is only for 3 people.  the irish cross is for my great-grandmother.

and I had the two crosses from a charm braclet
