101  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 33 ENTRIES / before there were gameboys on: December 04, 2008 12:30:09 PM
I used some recycled materials to make these puzzles for my nephews. The tin is from spices, recycled cards, coasters, and beads. They were inspired by some ball bearings that my son brought home. I like the old fashioned Christmas appeal. They make great stocking stuffers and can be done in cartoons as well. These are not for very small children though.



102  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Soft curlers with sizes on: November 28, 2008 07:08:47 AM
I saw the ones keeperox made and decided to make a set following the tutorial she linked to. I followed the guidelines for the original pattern 4x9 and then also cut it down to 2 1/2x5 3/4 for smaller ones. I thought about making a larger curler, but we don't have long enough hair.

103  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sidetable and candle holder recons on: November 13, 2008 12:36:50 PM
I found some ugly dark brown candle  sticks at goodwill. I painted the off white but then they were too stark so I sanded the paint off the edges for a rustic feel. The previous owner had made holes in one. I believe they wanted to add a sconce. This caused the wax from a lit candle to melt down through the holes. My now ex-boyfriend had some copper shell casings that were made into bowls/dish. They finished up the rustic look and contain the wax.


My second recon is a table I picked up at a second hand store. I liked the pair of tables, but needed more storage. I took off the tops and hinged them for easy access inside. On one of the tables I cut out one of the circles designs on the sides and finished it to match. A small trash can fits perfectly inside. The other may get a shelf installed for storage. The tops are carved so it is difficult to set a glass on top so I cut a plexyglass topper and adhered with sticky dots so that they would stay in place when the lid is tipped open.


104  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / 5 yard spinner on: November 11, 2008 10:11:48 PM
I picked up a drop spindle at a class 5 years ago. I was all excited and got started with some wool I was using to felt with. Everything was going great until the kids unwound it and got it all tangled. This happened more than once. I started again with another wool then we moved (3 times). I started with a silk cap, but got busy and put it away. I have two or three spindles started, and little to show for it. I enjoy the drop spindle, but wonder if I need a spinning wheel to bring it to the next stage.

It reminds me of my late mother inlaw who would knit squares and then toss them aside and start a new one, because she didn't know how to finish them off.

Maybe I have some kind of crafting ADD and can't decide what kind of crafting I want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions. Should I just enjoy spinning when I get around to it, and buy yarn to crochet with. Or is there something just wrong with me?

105  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / needle felted bunny purse on: November 10, 2008 11:35:42 AM
This is a pre-purchased purse and needle felting stencil. I changed the clovers into flowers. I like how the bunny turned out dimensional, but the flowers were too puffy for my tasted. I would use less wool for the flowers/clovers next time.

106  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: scarf and headband on: November 10, 2008 11:13:07 AM
I am working on Christmas gifts and have completed a scarf and a head band out of remnant yarn. These were made out of ticker tape and it is slightly stretchy. A big part of me does not want to give away the scarf.
