11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / That 70's Swap? :) (Hippie swap) on: September 23, 2010 02:25:48 PM
I would love to do a swap focused on 70's styles!  I saw where there was a hippie swap, and I'd love to see something like that again.  I am allllllll about the 70's aesthetic!
12  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 54 ENTRIES / Dollar store school supply jewelry rack! on: September 01, 2010 12:38:20 PM
I made this entire thing out of school supplies purchased at the Dollar Store!  :-D  I thought it would be a good little teacher gift for my daughter's teacher.  Would possibly make a neat gift for a new college froshgirl, too. 
Cost:  $2



Close up of erasers and paperclips used:



Some of the jewelry is handmade, some is not.  None comes with the rack.  LOL
13  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / This would work for any charity, I think... on: September 01, 2010 08:03:37 AM
Charity Crafternoons!  Crafters get together on a regular basis, like weekly, bring their extra stash stuff with them, craft stuff together to sell for charity.  I proposed this idea to my local animal rescue that has a thrift store, and they were tickled and said they'd help organize it, and actually said they get craft stuff donated all the time and we could use it!  I'm going in tonight, as a matter of fact, to get it started!
14  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Conversion of boys' river sandals to girls' summer sandals. on: August 31, 2010 05:45:26 PM
Hey all, newbie here!  I love this thread!  I think my first upcycling project was when I got bored in high school and drew all over my white cross trainers.   Wink  I felt so wicked...

Anyway, this year I got sick of the fact that ALL the summer shoes for my 12 yr old daughter were flimsy, hard, HEELED of all things, or otherwise completely unsuited for having any fun.  So my partner picked out these boys' river sandals, and I used paint pens to cute them up.  To get the flowers somewhat uniform, I just made pink x's, then added petals between those petals as desired (usually just one more), then waited until dry and added the little centers.  I painted them on every strip of leather big enough.  She gets complimented on them all the time and they're super comfy.   Smiley



(Guess I can't post a pic yet, sorry, but here's the link...hope that works...)
