31  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Snails in my garden-Irish Chain on: November 17, 2010 06:06:05 PM
This is my first quilt. It is your basic Irish chain. I named it snails in my garden.  It is hand tied with polyester batting.

It is not perfect by any means and I am sure there are mistakes I dont even know enough about quilting to see; but I have slept under it for two nights and have had no technical difficulties.  I think it is safe to day it works.  There may be too many pictures for a simple Irish chain but I am quite proud.
32  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / narwhals narwhals swimming in the ocean on: November 03, 2010 06:25:19 AM

So basically these costumes are pillows shaped like fins and safety pinned to our coats. This is a good costume method if you dont know how cold it is going to beforehand, and need to travel in it.  The horns are made of rolled card stock cones with muslin glue over it and held on with an elastic and stapled head band.  Cheap and comfortable. We wore them to the zoo for pumpkin enrichment.

33  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Loon Journal Cover, 1st Anniversary gift. on: October 31, 2010 07:03:47 PM

Are you broke?
Do you need a gift that says I love you?
Do you have one scrap piece of tooling leather and a wood burner?
Well make a journal cover girl.
I made this for my husband for our 1st anniversary, which was yesterday. I had to work on it in secret and have been waiting to show it off. This what a one shot thing because I did not have any more leather.  I am glad of how the burning turned out. I wish the lacing what better.  If anyone has any suggestions, resources or book I should know about please let me know. This is a tough cover so he can take it into the field and now the writing will have some protection.  The image is a common loon.

34  UNITED STATES / Michigan / Moving to East Lansing, looking for crafters on: July 06, 2010 02:06:18 PM
I am moving to East Lansing and wondered if there were any local crafters around.
35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Copper elf owl on: January 17, 2010 06:57:39 PM

This is the pendant I am most proud of because I created the image from scratch. Plus I got such great detail in such a tiny space (32 mm). This is an elf owl in a saguaro cactus, front and back. I made if for an 11 year old who is really into the guardians of ga'hoole. I am really trying to prefect my etching, I am self taught from books and just making it up as I go along. So comment and critiques are welcome.
36  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Halloween Bling on: October 10, 2009 03:25:30 PM
I have had to cut my non-wedding crafting back in order to get everything I need to have done done. But I did manage to make some bling for trick or treating. I was worried that the square shape would not be very comfortable to wear but it is. No tangling up, no catching on things, the square shape lays great and looks great. So here's the pics.

I would love some feedback. The only critics I have are the guys I work with. They are great sports about it but I would like a larger sample size.
37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cat barrettes on: September 15, 2009 09:29:14 PM
I may have gone full cat lady with these but they were really fun to make. They are etched copper barrettes.  The first is similar to a japanese wood cut and the other is a Japanese Cat Collage. 

I like the cat in the bag.
38  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I saw a Totoro on: September 09, 2009 09:51:51 AM
So I made some shrinky dinks. They were a pain to cut out. I think I need new scissors.  I have been on a My Neighbor Totoro kick lately.  So I wanted to make Totoro earrings. I baked them but broke the hoop sanding them so now they are magnets. The rest are still earrings.  There is a Gila monsters, Rosy finchs, Archaeopteryx fossils, and a cat and the moon.

39  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Copper pendants on: August 24, 2009 02:52:34 PM
I made these pretties this weekend. After much practice I have finally got results I like with the pendants. Do the findings and need more zazz? I don't know what to do with them after I make the pendant. I can not braid hemp any more I makes my hands ache. I have tried vinyl bead cord with these. Comments and criticism welcome. Thank you for looking

40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Earring weight on: August 19, 2009 01:03:25 PM
I have searched craftster and not found any answers. So I am posting here. I want to make some earrings but I don't want to make them to heavy. How heavy should earrings be? Or were could I find this information. I googled it and all I could find was don't wear heavy earrings. I want to make them for other people so I don't personally know what is generally to heavy. I like big danglely earrings so I will wear what is probably a bit to heavy.

All input is appreciated.
