Project Name:  Halloween cabinet
Project Link: Halloween cabinet
Brief Description: I started this just after Halloween items FINALLY went on sale.  then I put it away for quite a while because I was too lazy to go to the store and get some kind of feet for it (even the matte finish Mod Podge sticks to things.  not as bad as the gloss does, but I still don't like it).  then even after I got the feet I let it sit.  but, as you can see, I've been on a roll lately, so I decided to finish it.

yes, I know it's [supposedly] spring, but Halloween is my favorite holiday.  so I'll craft for it any time I want to.  Tongue



this started off as a cute white "drawer" complete with a wooden knob on top that I bought at...either Michaels or Joann Fabric.  I didn't like the knob though.  I wanted a fancy one.  so I broke that off and replaced it with the pretty glass one.  then I Mod Podged black and orange tissue paper over the entire thing (I love doing this SO much).  you can see where the orange wasn't layered as thick, but you can't tell in normal light.  I had some things on hand from past projects and just because I collect craft stuff, and I bought other things.  but I made the table and the gazing orb on the stand.  oh, and the Ouija board on the table.  the second picture shows the string of beads I put on each side.

I bought and painted this door like 2 or 3 years ago, then put it away and forgot about it.  oops.  so, since I'm on a roll tonight, I finished it up!  that moss, smells wonderful, by the way.

Bonus Points:  UFO
Project Name:  Fairy Door
Brief Description:  so I bought the door and painted it like 2 or 3 years ago.  then I put it away and forgot about it.  oops.  while looking through my stash for parts that I bought for other projects (I have a lot of UFOs), I found it again and I decided to finish it up.  I used a bright red for the door itself, and there's little orange beads in those cages to look like fire in hanging lanterns.  and look at those adorable red mushrooms!!!  oh, and that moss smells AMAZING.

Project Name:  Ziggy Stardust...in memory of David Bowie
Project Link:  Ziggy Stardust
Brief Description:  after the passing of Bowie, I felt the need to make something to remember him.  so I came up with the idea to make a cross stitched picture of him.  I finished it during the Winter Battle, but I never turned it in.  so I'm happy to have the opportunity to do it now!

Bonus Points:  UFO
Project Name:  Easter bunny decoration
Brief Description:  just a cute Easter decoration I put together in about 15 minutes (maybe 20 with all the work I put into making the styrofoam cone fit into the pot.  lol).  I just remembered that this does qualify for UFO bonus points because I bought the supplies like a month or more ago and just now made the thing.  lol.  I've been thinking about making it, but I just felt too lazy to.  but it's like my head cold got me in the mood to make it.  Cheesy

after seeing this adorable bunny pick at the craft store, I knew I had to have it and make something.  all Easter picks were 40% off, so I looked through the others they had and found the cute branch with little blue buds and eggs.  then I figured I could make something like what my mom has; her nephew's oldest daughter decorated a terracotta pot and put a plant in it to give to my mom.  once the plant died (mom has a black thumb), she got the idea to put a styrofoam ball in it with a piece cut off to make it flat, then fill it with fake flowers to go with the season/holiday and cover the styrofoam with glass gems/stones.  it's super cute.  when I bough my picks, I bought her a cute little pink bunny and a purple egg to stick in with the spring flowers.  Grin  ANYWAY, I found a small terracotta pot, a styrofoam cone (I couldn't buy a single ball the size I needed) to cut down, then found the cute little calla lilies.  then on a quick trip to another craft store, I found the glittery egg scatter and I had to have them!!!  the glass stones I've had for a while and they work much better than the glass orbs I was going to use.  so I put them all together and came up with this!!!



I finished this next item like a month ago or so, but I never got around to taking a picture of it.  I wanted to make one with mint yarn, but do you know how hard it is to find mint yarn?!  so when I found the mint plastic canvas, I flipped!  but I didn't want to cover it up, so I just decided to put designs in the corners.  I wanted to use black yarn to put it together, but I found the black yarn with silver in it to be a better choice.   Grin



you normally can't see the color of the box, but a camera flash shows everything.   Tongue

oh yeah!  duh.  I forgot to post my latest creation.





it's a needle book book; a needle book that looks like an actual hardcover book.  Grin  I modeled it after a book series I enjoy, The House of Night, specifically the first book Marked.  I found the moon and made it blue, then used glow-in-the-dark floss to make the diamond/HON and swirls.  I also made the tiny moon on the spine.  the book is 3 inches tall (somewhere between 2.5 and 2.75 inches wide), but the angle makes it look bigger for some reason.  it's kinda hard to tell, but the last picture is of it glowing.  you can see a slight green to the floss color.  I have no clue how to photograph glow-in-the-dark stuff.

39  House of Night needle book book in CHALLENGE 112 ENTRIES by Krafty_Karasu on: March 03, 2016 12:25:58 PM
I have been wanting to make a needle book specifically for my embroidery and tapestry needles.  this challenge was the perfect opportunity since I don't need a very big one.  I've made several needle books in the past for others - Twilight: New Moon, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, The Book of Penguins (check page 19 for a closeup of the spine), Labyrinth, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - so I decided to finally make myself one.  I modeled it after a book series I enjoy, The House of Night, specifically the first book Marked.  I found the moon and made it blue, then used glow-in-the-dark floss to make the diamond/HON and swirls.  I also made the tiny moon on the spine.  whenever the book is small, I need to make a closure for it too.





the book is 3 inches tall (somewhere between 2.5 and 2.75 inches wide), but the angle makes it look bigger for some reason.  it's kinda hard to tell, but the last picture is of it glowing.  you can see a slight green to the floss color.  I have no clue how to photograph glow-in-the-dark stuff.  plus I don't have the greatest camera ever.  lol.

my fingers kill me after I get done with one of these, but they're so worth it.  I love each and every one that I've made and I would love opportunities to make more for others.  but I need money before I can start swapping again.  Sad
