1  Re: Help! Plastic BB's! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by oddmentsandtweaks on: August 19, 2012 07:19:51 PM
I had some clear red plastic BBs myself that my brother had given me. I put them in a tiny bottle with some mineral oil and called them "Leviathan Eggs"--See here:



I bought another bottle at a craft store (one of the ones that is rounded and looks like a potion bottle) and filled it with the BBs too. I just leave it on the shelf with some other bottles filled with things and it makes a nice display.

Oh! If yours are white, they would probably look good in a clear vase, with some fake flowers in it. And of course, you can always glue them to things or embed them into things. They would probably be useful in one of those "Tiny things" type of crafts that everyone around here seems to be doing lately.

2  Crib Bumper Repurpose? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by oddmentsandtweaks on: August 19, 2012 01:15:53 PM
I'm a first time mom, and my son is a little over a month old now (WooHoo!). His great-aunt made him some really cute bumpers for his crib--but they don't work very well. They keep sagging down and generally don't work well. They could use some extra tabs or ties in the middle of them. But I've been reading around, and it says that removing the bumper pads decreases the risk of SIDS in small babies... so rather than try and fix them, I decided to simply pull them out. 

So here's my question: what else can I do with them now? I don't want to just get rid of them. I was thinking maybe sewing them together to make a soft play mat? But the mat would be really long and odd-shaped. Does anyone else have any suggestions as to what to do with them? Here are a couple pictures to show what I have to work with. They attached together using the velcro tabs on the sides.

Such great stuff! I love the pony scene!! One of these days I'm going to take the time to make something like that.

Also, I have pictures of the shot glass I sent, which shows the etching a little bit better. I was so impressed by how well it came out! I wasn't expecting it to be so great.

Alrighty. After a night of traipsing around behind our youth group as they went trick or treating, I can now post the pictures of the great swap SKooKuM sent us.

So, the first thing I saw when I opened the box was this amazingness:


It's exactly one of the things I've been lusting after! Twilight's balloon lights up and everything! And the little Twilight in front there was... somewhere else in the package I don't remember. She looks like she might be from McDonalds. But I'm not complaining, because now I have ANOTHER Twilight toy. Two Twilights! Yes!

Then I remembered I was supposed to be taking pictures. So here's my box, with the balloon toy removed:


The first little box-within-the-box I opened contained these adorable little bottle pendants! One themed for Spike, Twilight, and Princess Celestia. Who told you I like bottles? If I did, I don't remember.


Next, I picked out a box with Matt's name on it, so I handed it to him to open. Out popped Fluttershy! An adorable, amazing, posable Fluttershy! Matt exclaimed "Fluttershy!" and after a moment of looking it over promptly said: "Yay." in his best Fluttershy voice.


Oh, wait! I forgot about these! I might have seen these first or second. I don't remember. It was in that beginning rush before I remembered to take pictures. And adorable journal and bag with Twilight on them! I love the quote, too! Where on earth did you find these? We don't have anything like that around where we live. Love!


So, has everyone figured out that I like Twilight yet? She's basically me as a pony. Which is why I squeeled when I opened another little box and found this:


My very own little Twilight doll like Fluttershy! (Except mine is bigger!  Yes!) Her eyes are all sparkily, and her hair is done up perfect! I love her so much! And she came with a little hair piece.

The last little box revealed some cute shrinky-dink jewelry! Derpy, Twilight, Spike, and cupcakes/muffins! I hope the picture does them justice.


And you'd think that was all, but no, the package got even more awesome. Yet another package with Matt's name on it, which he opened up to find a letter.


And what was under that letter? But an AWESOME painting of the character Professor Fandango as a pony! One of my husband's best friend's characters! And so well done! He loves it!


And last, but not least, yet another amazing painting (which I think the scanner ate the colors of):


Thanks so much swap partner!

popped on this morning and the first thing i noticed under "hot new projects" was this;

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392590.0

I think she did a bang up job!!!

That's so great! I was just about to share that same link! And I agree; she did a great job with that plushie!

Though, so far, the best plushie I've ever seen of Fluttershy is this one:




Though... just now looking through the person's gallery... My goodness... Check this one out:

That one is actually for sale. The current bid is $640, though! Ouch!

Depends on how far I get on my son's Halloween costume. He's going to be Sir Robin from Monty Python's Holy Grail.

So funny! Incidentally, browsing DeviantArt the last week, I came across a custom pony of Sir Robin. When you said this, I immediately thought of that pony! Check it out:

I received my final envelope today. The extras from crazyalien8! It looks as though I was stalked a bit in her making these, and they're just as beautifully detailed as the alphabet letters she sent me!

Yesterday I received my extras from pogo, and today I received my final letters from crazyalien8! Woohoo! So here's some pictures!

First, the extras that Pogo sent me. In beautiful green as requested! And she totally upped me by sending 12! Wow!




Next, the letters sent from crazyalien8. The detail on these is incredible, and each of the animals is cut-out! Also, I never knew there was a type of fish called Zander. You learn something new every day.



And now, the grand finale! The entire alphabet I received from all of my great swap partners!
