1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sparkly Blue Varigated Scarf on: April 22, 2010 09:29:26 PM
This is just a scarf I crocheted out of leftover yarn from another project. It is a basic 3DC Ch3 3DC stitch and is done with two strands of yarn held together. One is a size 3 cotton acrylic varigated( I forgot the brand) and the other is  Vanna in sapphire.



the girl in the last photo modeling it for me is my daughter Shirley.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / White Queen Inspired Loaded Charm Bracelet- Pic chubby on: March 27, 2010 01:30:50 AM
So this is my companion bracelet to my Red Queen Bracelet. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342469.msg3976272#msg3976272
Again, the pictures are fuzzy and I apologize for that. This one is a little bit less pretentious than the Red Queen piece, as the White Queen seems to be a little more confident in her personal presence. Though its not at cluttered, this braceletended up being the more expensive materialswise as it is filled with freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals in clear and blue. I went with the crystals and pearls after seeing Anne Hathaway's costuming in the new movie. The blue I added because although the White Queen is supposed to be the more benevolent one, there is something undeniably Icy about her charachter as a whole. In the Red bracelet my homage to the hatter was a tiny pair of scissors, in this bracelet it is a golden plume charm. There is also a charm depicting the top of a scepter and one with a court jester. both of these look as if they were drawn in a similar style to the illustrations of the original Alice books. There is a filigree silver charm with a bird in the middle, and a genuine gold drop charm with a moonstone orb in the center. Again I put a crown on this bracelet, but with the Red Queen's the jewel was a faceted red glass bead, on this it is a freshwater pearl. Different Crowns for Different Queens. My favorite charm on this is a large blue mirrored glass charm with facets around the edges. In one of the pictures you can see it reflecting part of a tattoo that is on my chest. This of course represents "Through the Looking Glass". There are a lot of other tiny details on this that I wont list, mostly glass beads and bone. Thanks for looking!





3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Red Queen Inspired Loaded Charm Bracelet- pic heavy on: March 25, 2010 09:12:33 PM
So today I took a break from crafting for the favorite color swap (and from studying!) to make this charm bracelet. Some of the charms reminded me of the Queen of hearts, so there are a lot of hearts on the bracelet. There is also a crown, because what is a queen without a crown? A spider, just because. a small pair of scissors as my homage or lament for the Hatter having to design hats for the red queen in the new movie, a red rose, a white rose ( representing the opposing queens. the white one is much smaller but perhaps that is because her ego isnt as big as the red queens?), a birdie charm, glass leaves, bone beads, a small metal charm that says "thrive", and various other pretties.

the photos of this bracelet were incredibly hard to get right for some reason, so excuse the blurriness. they do not do the bracelet justice.

above is a really cool charm i found that just matched the color scheme, plus i just love plaid!

the crown, red rose and birdie



Thanks for looking!
This bracelet is up for personal swap especially for handspun yarn just pm me if you are interested:)

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pooh Quilted Baby Changing Pad on: March 22, 2010 08:10:04 PM
I made this changing pad for my friend who just delivered her baby two months early. Guess its good that I started making things early too! The green fabric is sparkly and is also used for the binding and the backing. Sorry for the lack of quality on the photos, I used my cell camera to take them.
 


5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Snow Flower Earrings on: March 19, 2010 06:02:06 PM
These are a style of flower earrings that I make. I was asked to post pictures of them so here they are:) They are simple, but this color combination is one of my personal favorites, although most people prefer them in pinks and reds or blue and gold. I do a version of them I call forget me nots because that is the Alaska state flower. Comments and Criticisms are welcome Smiley
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wearing O' The Green St. Patty's Loaded Charm Bracelet on: March 15, 2010 10:08:30 PM
Since Saint Patrick's day is a big deal around my Irish household it is one of my favorite holidays. I decided to make this bracelet with that in mind. There are little green shamrock beads on it, along with adventurine, australian jade, malachite, and amethyst. The bronze charms have waxing and waning moons on them and some have sayings such as "dream" and "wish for the moon". The moon is a celtic symbol for the goddess and the feminine. I cant wait for another loaded charm bracelet swap to come around! Hope you like it, comments and criticisms are welcome.



7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / City/State/Country Swap? on: March 15, 2010 12:07:01 PM
I most likely wouldnt be able to organize, but I was thinking that most of the crafters on here are from so many different places that it might be fun to do a swap themed around where you lived. You would craft things for your partner that have to do with either your city, state, or country, depending on where your partner lives ( obviously if you are in the same country you wouldn't theme your items around the country, but more locally). For instance, I live in Alaska. There are a lot of crafts that are common here and seen regularly around my town such as native beadwork, birchbark crafts, leather crafts, gold jewelry, ect. I could craft something along those lines for my partner. I could also choose to theme my crafts around the scenery or other things native to alaska, like our three different types of bears or moose or the northern lights, ect.

I do realize a swap like this would take a bit of planning partner wise, so the partners arent too close together, but I think it might be a fun way to get to know a little more about another crafter AND another part of the world.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Suncatcher Ornaments on: March 09, 2010 03:11:39 PM
These are little mini versions of suncatchers that I do around the holidays. They are meant to be hung up so the pictures arent the best.  let me know what you think!




9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Neck-"Lace" on: March 09, 2010 02:55:09 PM
This is my first upload of some of my projects. These are necklaces that are done using a variation of the Commanche weave. The style was popular in the 1970's, except at that time they were usually larger and more like a collar. I can write a tutorial or give suggestions if anyone likes. Hope you guys like them!
