OMG!  I was unable to participate in a Halloween swap due to conflicting ending/starting times between it and a swap I was in at the time.  well, one of the participants was kind enough to offer to do a personal swap with me.  I was thrilled!  I was expecting a great swap, but instead, I got a freaking AWESOME swap!!!  she spoiled me rotten!

look at all that stuff!  there was actually a ton of candy, but I didn't feel like dumping it all out of the bowl I put it all in and just decided to show one of each kind of treat that was included in the box (meaning the Sweet Tarts, Laffy Taffy, and Nerds).  Hello Kitty is even holding a cute little pumpkin treat bag filled with Hello Kitty chewy milk candies.  they rock!!!  this was an awesome, awesome swap experience...I just hope she likes what I gave her.

thank you so much once again, Tero.  you are awesome!!!!!

305  Halloween decorated wooden spoon in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: October 24, 2008 04:27:25 PM
another project inspired by a craftster member.  ;p

inspired by Knickertwist's spoons (sorry.  for some reason I can't copy and paste), I decided to make my own.  mine's not as fancy, but I still like it for my first attempt.   Smiley

306  Kingdom Hearts and Harry Potter in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Krafty_Karasu on: October 24, 2008 03:57:09 PM
I guess this is where they would go since I took plain black hoodies and turned them into something really nifty.  oh man...I just said nifty...  *face palm*

I don't have a dress maker's dummy or anyone to model it for (so they can take my picture), so a chair will have to do.

anyways, the first one is an Organization XIII hoodie inspired by this post:

I'm still thinking about putting the Nobodies symbol on it.

the second was inspired by that post as well, since I'm too afraid to try and make a robe.  so I turned a hoodie into something similar to a Harry Potter school robe.

the hood is even lined in red (kinda hard to see).  it's a little off center, but you can't really tell.

so how do you like?

307  Re: MELTING PONY BEADS in Beads: Discussion and Questions by Krafty_Karasu on: September 22, 2008 06:30:42 AM
I'll be posting pictures of mine in a bit.


you can see on the maple leaf that the baking sheet I used wasn't very flat so extra plastic crept out of the cookie cutter.  Undecided  the rest of the extra plastic just needs to be broken off.

and the bottom left area of the yellow leaf has a little lump in it.  that's a partially melted pony bead.   Tongue

and it didn't show up in the picture, but the plastic kinda looks like it's marbled or something.  it's pretty neat.   Grin

308  Re: Anyone Bead Weaving? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by Krafty_Karasu on: September 18, 2008 11:51:20 AM
why do I do it?  because it allows me to make things like this:

just in case there's a few people out there who haven't seen this.   Wink
that is all square stitch (a type of off-loom weaving).  I find that video game sprites come in handy when making these.  video game addicted cross stitchers will say the same thing.   Tongue

and sophieangele, your piece is beautiful.   Smiley

yay!!!  I was right!  I got it today!!!

picture time!!!!!!!!!!

my awesome scarf and lunch box (I've always wanted one of those)

an action shot of my scarf.  oops...and my, uhhh...butterbeer...heh...good news: it'll keep me nice and warm in the winter.  bad news: it was nearly too hot to take any pictures in a scarf and I kept taking bad pictures!  this was the best of them!

STICKERS!!!!!!!!  it's like she knows me.  I never said anywhere that I'm a sticker freak but there they are!

there was also a baby food jar full of stuff for making jewelry!

my totally awesome pencil case

and lastly, a bracelet with shrinky Hermione, Hagrid, Hogwarts logo, Harry and Ron; a Dumbledore necklace; Gryffindor earrings; and an "I love Harry Potter" dangle!

I can't pick a favorite, but the scarf was something I specifically wanted, so I guess I love it most.    Grin  but I really do love everything.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

i love everything but my most favorite is the buffalo/cow/bull skull

see, that's what I meant by smushing 2 (actually 3) things you like into one.  I saw that you like Indian items and cow skulls are everywhere in their culture, you like Gryffindor, and you like Hedwig.  so you got a cow skull with Gryffindor colors and a cute little owl on it.   Tongue

that was actually a large item time wise.  it took me hours to stitch those beads together and secure it to the face.  it even took me a while to come up with the "mask" design. 

duh...I just realized that the ornament is a combo too.  you like to collect ornaments and you like Gryffindor.  THAT is the item that was mostly done, but then I decided I didn't like it and I started all over again.  :p

I'm glad you like your stuff.  I was so nervous about everything.

OH!  here's a picture of the box.  I'm just so da...rn proud of it.

the little blob in the upper left corner is a little owl with a letter in its talons, the one by her address is Professor McGonagall, and the one above "Gryffindor" is Harry and his broom.

AND!  I keep remembering stuff.   Tongue  all of the bubble wrap was Gryffindor colors...red and yellow.  it's awesome when you find stuff like that to make things just a little more personalized.   Wink
