211  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sweet doggie sentiments on: December 15, 2008 10:52:35 AM
I made this for my boyfriend's parents for xmas. Recently they had to put down one of their golden retrievers due to old age which was very hard for them to do; I just wanted to create a piece that paid homage in a subtle way to old "Blue". I think its sweet, and I love the dog prints  Smiley

C&C are appreciated. Thanks!
212  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Quirky ornaments with personality. on: December 10, 2008 05:49:50 PM
I've been loving all the awesome ornament ideas being tossed around here. I've come up with a few of my own to contribute...   Grin Grin

Meet Mr. Pickle. This is my take on the traditional Christmas pickle. I've always wanted one but never had one. I finally made this for addicted2knitting in the December Birthday swap and now of course I have to make one for me  Cheesy I shaped a bit of foil to be roughly the size of a small pickle and covered it with clay. I think it gave it very realistic curves and wrinkles like a pickle has. The arms and legs are wire (I got the idea from the BentObjects guy http://www.bentobjects.blogspot.com/) and I thought it was appropriate to glue the whole body to a fork  Grin I wish I had more tools so I could have molded the fork more but as it was all I had the strength for was to bend it  Roll Eyes

I also made a2k a "birthday" ornament since her birthday is on the 24th. I got the idea from all the cool altoid tin ornaments I've been seeing - its made from a small oval gift box (the lid was turned into another ornament) that I painted sky blue. I mod poged a snowflaky background (I don't know if you can actually see it in the picture) and then sculpted a tiny winter tree, snow landscape, and dog (modeled after a2k's pup) to fit in the box. I used wire for the tree frame. After baking, I carefully folded up a handful of tiny paper boxes that I wrapped with one strand of embroidery floss to be the presents. I glued those to the branches, dotted with glue, and sprinkled liberally with glitter. On the back is a little description of the tree and its significance.

Lastly, I made a simple tree of life ornament out of a bangle and some mixed white/clear/iridescent beads.

Let me know what you think  Grin


213  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Tis' the season for quirky ornaments on: October 27, 2008 05:37:15 PM
One of my dear friends has been having a string of really crappy luck, so I decided to make some spur of the moment ornaments out of felt. She loves sushi and guinea pigs so I thought it was very appropriate. They were actually really easy to make and remind me of the felt ornaments my mom used to make when I was a kid.  Smiley

I hope this was posted in the right area (sorry if not!).
214  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / I love the colors! Prettyful quilt on: October 27, 2008 05:30:45 PM
I think slowly as I make each quilt I'm getting better. I attempted a simple square quilt again, and actually for the most part the corners line up nicely. I think the colors look great and I love the patterns. I was really worried that it would be overwhelming but I think it works.

Comments and crits appreciated.  Grin
215  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / When life is drear, have a beer! on: October 27, 2008 05:28:01 PM
Here's a xstitch I made for my boyfriend's brother who is a big fan of beer (appropriate I would think  Wink)

216  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Resin and Shrinky FuN! on: October 27, 2008 05:24:33 PM
I've been working diligently on a variety of xmas gifts for my friends and family and here is some fruit of my labor.

Here's some zombie resin magnets I made for my boyfriend's brother and girlfriend who are zombie fanatics.

And some shrinky dinks I put pin backs on - going to my sis. The blue cup on the end is saying "How about a nice glass of shut the f*ck up" which cracks me up. And a resin spoon pendant for my sis as well.

I love how easy and self-gratifying this is! Smiley
217  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffie newb + zombie monster = deranged cuteness on: September 26, 2008 09:17:39 PM
This was my second attempt at a stuffie type thing. My first was ended in utter failure when I tried to make a small dog and ended up sewing the seams in the wrong order and being left unable to sew the last seam shut >.< This time however, I totally winged it and it didn't come out too badly. I modeled this after Lobsterchicky's wisted stuffie zombie sock monster, since this was made for her for the jar o' whimsies swap. A few of the seams are not so great but overall, I think its really cute. It has a bit of character, let's say  Cheesy

Let me know what you think. I'm happy for my first completed attempt. Any comments or suggestions for the future?
218  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / zombie want braaaaiiiinnnnssss - resin wundekin on: September 26, 2008 09:13:20 PM
Here are two resin pieces I made for Lobsterchicky for the recent jar o' whimsies swap. I love the first one the bestest. lol

In case you can't read what the second one says, it reads "I love you for your mind." Of course that's what all of them say.
219  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Lay Your Head on my Sweet Sweet Claws on: September 26, 2008 09:10:04 PM
Here is a stenciled pillowcase I made for Lobsterchicky for the recent jar of whimsies swap. The lettering was done freehand which explains why it sucks so badly, but I love the way the lobster came out. You can't see very well in this picture but I put a layer of gold paint over the black which makes it shimmer a bit.

Wide Shot:

Who wouldn't want to be cradled by a lobster when you go to sleep?
220  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Badge of honor for my best friend on: September 14, 2008 01:31:40 PM
My best friend's myspace page declares that her official job title is "ass manager" so I thought it would be hilarious to make a pin for her.

She actually works at Starbucks as a manager, but I'm wondering if this would be "work appropriate"? haha.
