*sighs* Now I know what I'll be doing tonight...
222  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: A nifty little hammock bed for the rats? I think so. on: January 12, 2009 07:19:50 AM
As soon as I saw this, I immediately thought "That's really cute and nice for them to use until they chew it down."

I lost a NICE pair of sandals to pet-rat-chewing, among other things.

When I had my rat, she was allergic to all kinds of bedding, and I definitely didn't want to try and give her cedar, so I actually took old clothing scraps and cut up for her to use as bedding, along with some old newspaper and magazines that I tore into strips. For the litter box area (or the catch tray underneath), I used Yesterday's News cat litter from Petco. It's recycled and not nearly as dusty as the real thing. I also used Yesterday's News with my ferret when I had him. I don't think it actually works very well for cats, but it's great for rodents.

Ah, the days of small rodents as pets. Now I'm just down to a dog and a cat.
223  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Volume Tech-Geek Necklace on: January 12, 2009 06:31:17 AM
I work in an IT office, and I come across tons of old computer equipment. So naturally, I had to find something to do with at least SOME of the stuff.


This has turned out to be a very cute, petite necklace. The pendant is a recycled volume knob from a broken CD burner. It's rather neat to play with; it still turns up or down. So if you're bored, you can pretend to turn the volume of people's voices down around you.

The chain the pendant is hanging on is actually recycled cat 5e cable. I've taken out the green pair to use as a nice accent to the pendant. A friend has soldered the clasps on.

My little Sister-in-Law was nice enough to model it for me.

Neat! I'd actually never seen one of these before. It's nice to not have come across an "I can't tell you" before I did.
225  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Zipper Brooches on: January 12, 2009 06:17:00 AM
Very cute! I love the look. You almost wouldn't know they were zippers to begin with.
226  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Can you tell what this is supposed to be? on: January 12, 2009 06:13:30 AM
I immediately thought it was a baby chick.

Perhaps the addition of a small eye could help convince others who don't see it? I'm not sure, aside from making a beak that actually sticks out over the side a bit.

Anyway, it looks like a bird to me. A little odd bird, but a bird nonetheless.

Those are really nicely done! I love all of the colors, and you took great pictures to show them off. I think I may have to try this out, myself.

Does a hair blow-dryer work the same as a heat-gun?

Very nice! Your first experimentation went MUCH better than mine--trust me, my stuff looks a lot worse.

I especially love the ones you did with the backings. The wings and the leaves with green background stand out to me the most. Excellent for a first time!

You could fill them with resin, too, which dries hard.  It looks lovely, though!

I thought about that: I have resin to use. However, I had heard that you shouldn't put things into resin that actually contain moisture, like the live plants I like to use. I don't know what would happen if I did. I'm not entirely sure I want to waste some of the resin to find out.

I have to say, I love the mummy one. And from the looks of it, that one also took you the most time.
