1  Re: Over 30 Geezer Swap Round 4 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by NotKnit on: September 22, 2011 07:56:57 PM
I received from corduroy cat and finally got the chance to post. Can I just say how cool it was to get a box from the UK and marked "Royal Mail" - anyway, had a dork moment Smiley She made me a bunch of Dr. Who goodies!

An awesome framed embroidery of the 11th Doctor and young Amelia Pond.


A really cool Dr. Who necklace -- it looks like a silver pocket watch (one featured prominently in several episodes with the 10th Doctor if you aren't familiar), inside is a Tardis blue background with two hearts (just like the Doctor) and watch pieces for that Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey stuff, and the back is an image of Gallifreyan script.



Cool extras -- Dr. Who magnets and micro-figures (like lego people), I'd seen these advertised on BBC America (I'm such a nerd, I know).


There was also a really adorable needle-felted adipose baby but my son stole it and I haven't figured out where he is hiding it yet to take a picture.

I received from amydice and the box really must have been bigger on the inside  Grin


My very own Ood! How ood.


A mini-Tardis journal necklace a la River Song.


A Dr. 11 bow-tie necklace. My pics are bad but it's spangly yarn.


Tardis-blue extras. I see little Tardis' (Tardii?) in my future.

Thanks amydice, I love everything! I may have to start an amydice Who-verse ami collection  Grin

3  Re: Boycott the craft store Destash Swap Gallery! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by NotKnit on: July 29, 2011 07:44:19 PM
Here is whole shebang from southern flower:


Huge cuts of flannel (the colors are a bit off, the brown is very chocolatey in real life):


Large cuts of cottons, the birdie fabric will probably go to cute baby projects:


A giant pile of jewelry fixin's! There is resin coloring, different necklace chains, bottle cap pendants, tons of clasps and jump rings, several bezel settings:


Thank you southern flower Smiley

4  Resin and stamped swap goodies in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by NotKnit on: July 23, 2011 07:13:47 AM
My partner in the For Love of Cupcakes swap (sailorgirlbonk) received so it is safe to post the highlights here.


My first cast resin piece!


My first stamped metal piece.



Resin and game tile pendants.

There are a few more items and more detail on my blog if you are interested - http://notknit.blogspot.com/2011/07/for-love-of-cupcakes.html

I'd love to hear what you think! These are also my first foray into attempting a steampunk sort of look.

Prepare to Wist ladies! I received from sailorgirlbonk and she did awesome!

Here is the total package:

A Dr. Who Cupcake hoop (oh yes!), a Scrabble and cupcake pillow, cupcake notecards my son tried to steal, and - for extras - stationary, pencil and eraser set, lip gloss, and a hilarious little book that is full of "reasons" why you can have that yummy dessert (i.e., it's the last one, your blood sugar is low, it was a gift...).

Here is the totally awesome Dr. Who cupcake hoop featuring none other than Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor in cupcake form! Because bowties and fezzes are cool.

I really can't get over it, I'm in love.

Here is the delightfully sweet and nerdy Scrabble/cupcake pillow Smiley I'm a word nerd who loves Scrabble stuff and kawaii cupcake faces.


Thank you so much, sailorbonkgirl!

6  Re: Scrabble Tile Pendant....Questions ??? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by NotKnit on: July 15, 2011 08:26:15 AM


Here is a pic I just posted the other day. I use "glue" the image to the tile with Modge Podge and then apply two coats of Modge Podge on top. I top with resin (Envirotex Lite for these). I made a whole heap of them all in one go so I got a bit lazy toward the end about checking for air bubbles but breathing softly on them really does make the tiny bubbles go away. I have used bails from Etsy and Hobby Lobby. I glued the bails on with E6000 and my only complaint is that the resin doesn't smell but the E6000 is stinky and needs the ventilation!

7  Retro/rockabilly Accessories in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by NotKnit on: July 14, 2011 02:45:02 PM
I recently scored a ton of resin supplies from a couple of super awesome swap partners Smiley Here are a few of my first attempts from a Saturday when I just went mad and made a ridiculous amount of game tile pieces. I'm sending these to my friend who lives across the country from me and I miss a ton! Since they are early attempts, there are a few teeny tiny air bubbles but since they are going to a friend I'm not concerned so much.


A bobby-pin and pendant that began life as Scrabble tiles and a pendant made with a Rummikub tile. Forgive the lazy photo taking, I used my phone so it is a bit more yellow-y than in real life.

What do you think?

8  Patriotic Cookies in Dessert by NotKnit on: July 06, 2011 09:16:55 AM
My father-in-law and his wife hosted a cook-out and fireworks viewing party and one of my contributions were patriotic cookies. What better way to celebrate independence than explosives and gluttony Smiley



They are sugar cookies topped with fondant and super yummy!

I gave a basic outline on my blog of what I did: http://notknit.blogspot.com/2011/07/fourth-of-july-cookies.html

10  Crash Glass for Father's Day in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by NotKnit on: June 18, 2011 10:17:44 PM
Using a Groupon discount I took a "crash glass" class at a nearby stained glass studio and made a Father's Day gift for my hubby. It is essentially a scrapbooking layout epoxied to glass in a picture frame, then pieces of tempered glass are epoxied to the top and then grouted like a mosaic. Some of my epoxy oozed and messed up my grouting but I think it looks pretty cool for my first attempt.



The whole shebang in/on an 8 x 10 frame.


Partial close-up of the top - great quotation about love, one of our favorite comics (specifically a strip related to parenthood), and a picture from our wedding.

Partial close-up of the bottom - another comic, a picture of me and the hubby, a pic of hubby holding our new baby girl, and a pic of our little boy riding on daddy's shoulders.
