1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tiny Leather Pouch Necklace on: February 10, 2013 04:42:46 PM
Here is the tiny pouch necklace that I made for hgddm for the Jar of Whimsies rd 10 swap.  All in all, it is about 1.25 inches by 1.25 inches big.  It is made of hand-stitched blue leather that I painted with bronze paint and I added a black pearl button for a closure.  I hope you enjoy it!

2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Felted Teddy Bear on: February 10, 2013 03:46:58 PM
A little teddy bear that I felted for my fiance for his birthday.  He is about 4 inches long.  Isn't he cute?
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Craft Porcelain Ornament on: February 10, 2013 03:27:45 PM
     This is my first venture into clay in a very long time.  Since one of my specialties is paper cutting, I decided that I would use the same technique to do a Victorian-inspired piece.  The purple is just the box that I shipped it in.  I hope that you enjoy it.

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper cuttings (img heavy) on: October 01, 2009 09:02:24 AM
Hi this is my first time posting any of my work here on Craftster.

I made these cuttings about 2 years ago so please forgive me for forgetting the source of two of the patterns.  If it is really important I can do the research and find out where they came from.  Without further ado, here they are:

These are from the book Papercutting: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Learning the Craft by Claudia Hopf

Again I do not know the source of these patterns.

I hope you enjoyed!
5  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / felting needles, foam pads, "finger felting", and fiber on: September 21, 2009 01:53:35 PM
Hi everyone!  I'm pretty new to needle felting (I have completed a few projects so far), but I have 4 questions.  Instead of posting them all separately, I figure that i'd post them together.

1. My detail felting needle broke (40 g.) and I would like to know of a good website to get one.  I bought the originals at Pennsic and I forgot to take a card so i could get more (slaps forehead).  I have heard about needles that come in 48 g. and would like some of them too.

2. I have been having a lot of difficulty felting against a foam surface.  Every time I pull the piece away it always leaves these little trailing pieces of fiber behind.  I'm using this flexable piece of styrofoam-ish packing material that I found in my mom's craft stash that I saw one website selling for needle felting.  Could what I'm using to felt on be the problem?  I don't think I am pushing the needle in too far.

3. I have seen on a few topics people using a "finger felting" method that is just rolling the fiber between your fingers or hands.  Whenever I try to do this my fiber does not like felting together or it only felt very loosely.  Am I just a spaz or am I actually doing something wrong?  Should I wet the fiber before I roll it?

4. I would like to know a online cheap source for core fiber roving and for colored roving.  Does anyone know of someplace spectacularly low priced?

Thanks and have a great day!
6  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Northwest / Pennsic on: July 12, 2009 05:01:38 PM
Is anyone going to Pennsic this year?  If so I was thinking of doing a meet and greet.  Does anybody have any suggestions? 

If you don't know what Pennsic is, it is a 2 week medieval fair in Slippery Rock, PA.  Here's a link to the official website:  http://www.pennsicwar.org/penn38/
It's a great place to learn all of those crafts that are endangered do to the ways of the "modern era".
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Baby food jar of whimsies? on: March 18, 2009 06:43:09 PM
I'm new to craftster, so I don't know if this idea has been done before.  I just think that this would be great since it has the same purpose of the larger jar of whimsies while money saving on shipping. What do other people think?
