# of angels needed: 1 None!

The fabulous nessie is in need of an angel due to a few mix-ups.  She's waited super super patiently for her package, so I would need something to be sent within two weeks.  She lives in the USA!

A bit of her questionnaire, so you can see if you'd be able to angel ...

What do you grow?
TOMATOES (this year we are attempting 13 different varieties), lots of herbs, eggplant, peppers, onions, squash, spinach, beans, tomatillos, cucumbers, marigolds and more.  I am very well stocked on veggie and herb seeds, but I would appreciate flower seeds as I am just getting into growing them.
What's your region?  (For US residents, check out National Gardening Association) 4a
What things for the garden/gardener would you like to receive? I would love a screen garden tote (I love the one from a previous swap here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=296282.msg3434726#msg3434726 but I'm partial to something just a solid color) or a nice basket with a handle, a garden apron, birdhouse/hummingbird feeder, plant stakes for herbs (I can PM with the herbs I am growing if need be, though I already have some stakes for basil, rosemary, oregano and parsley), seeds (other than tomatoes and especially flowers), recipes, citronella candles, windchimes and decorated/handmade pots.  My favorite colors are sage green, verdigris/seafoam, wine purple, brown, robin's egg blue and dusty pink, and I love birds, mushrooms, leaves, vintage/antique style things especially floral fabric and paper, chippy paint and rust and anything earthy.  I love the look and uniqueness of handmade things, especially imperfections.  I would be happy with anything inspired by what I have written about myself/my garden or whatever else my partner can dream up.

Please PM me if you're interested!

Swap angel isn't needed!  Yay!
152  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / J&T Challenge 2: Flip Flop Pendant on: May 30, 2010 11:31:20 AM
This is my first challenge entry, so yay!  When I saw the challenge topic, I couldn't resist.  After several trials and errors, I came up with this little flip flop.  I made it with #6 plastic with perm marker decoration then once it was shrunk, I painted and sealed the back so it wasn't transparent.  I added some beading for the straps and then put it on a silver chain.

(I apologize in advance for the pics. Sad  I spent a good hour trying to get good ones but apparently my camera is not good with small things.  They were either washed out from the flash or way blurrier than this ...)

And modeled by my penguin, Bert (because nothing says summer like a penguin!)

And closest I can get without it being unrecognizable:

And now modeled by me (thanks to my mom taking the picture):

Smiley  Thanks for looking!  (And concrit totally welcomed!)
153  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Suggestions for covering shelves on: May 28, 2010 05:48:41 AM
Hello crafty ladies and gentlemen!

I come to you with a crafting dilemma.  I have two sets of shelves that are in dire need of refurbishing of some kind.  They're pressboard with a white overlay of some kind that's, in parts, bumpy and gross.  I have them in my bathroom so whatever I do to them needs to put up with heat and humidity.

I could just do a fabric tablecloth for them both, but I'd like some other options, too.  Would finding pretty scrapbook paper and then sealing it work, do you think?  Or gluing fabric to it instead (that might be hard to clean, though)?

Thanks in advance!
154  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 1 Garden Swap Angel FOUND on: May 24, 2010 06:27:20 PM
Hi lovely Craftsters!

I am in need of an angel for torilimcadle.  Not only did she send a fabulous package to her partner who gushed all about it, but she sent super early and then was flaked on. Sad  I'd really like to get an angel who could do a quick turnaround (2 weeks, if at all possible).  torilimcadle lives in the USA.

Here's a link to the original thread, but to summarize: The requirement for this swap is 5 points, which will translate to one medium and three smalls OR two mediums and one small.

Here's a portion of her questionnaire:

Are you an indoor gardener or an outdoor gardener? Indoor, sadly.
Are you a container gardener, a square-foot gardener, or a 'I have several acres and it's all mine!' gardener? Container!
Do you get full sun, partial sun, partial shade, or shade? I can control it pretty easily, but it's normally full sun.
What type of soil do you have? Potting soil?  The kind that comes in a bag?  The all organic kind.
What do you grow? Herbs, mostly.
What's your region?  The West.  It also says my zone is 5A.
What things for the garden/gardener would you like to receive? Seeds, pots, organizers...  I'm up for anything, really!

Please PM me if you're interested!

155  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Storage? on: May 22, 2010 05:58:44 PM
Having only one 'papercrafting' shelf in my crafting corner, I'm curious how you all store your papers and other goodies.  My papers are stacked in one corner, my stamps are in a plastic baggie, markers and glue are in a mug, and the other accoutrements are squished onto the shelf wherever they can fit.

How do you all store your papercraft goodies?
156  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby gift bag on: May 22, 2010 05:34:11 PM
One of my co-workers is due June 10th, so of course, I had to make her and her baby a homemade gift.  (And pray that she lasts out the rest of the school year!)  I sewed her two burp cloths and a bib, but once that was done, I realized I had nothing to put it in.

Joann's Fabric to the rescue!  I purchased a plain brown bag, some animal stickers (the nursery is jungle-themed) and some elephant ribbon.  Some cutting, use of the permanent markers and a bit of glue, and I came up with this:

I used a stencil and the markers to do the 'It's a boy!' bit.

I made the card separate so she can re-use it for her other friends who will have baby boys. 

She thought it was really cute. Smiley
157  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Knitted leaf wreath on: May 07, 2010 09:29:27 AM
Well, given that I've gifted my mother with a plethora of dish cloths for her birthday, Valentine's and Easter, I knew I had to come up with something else for Mother's Day.   After perusing Ravelry for inspiration (she bought me some yarn and I wanted to use some of it), I came across this pattern for a knitted wreath.

I started out with a varigated yarn, so when it started going more red than purple, I decided to go with only seven leaves, instead of nine, but I think it turned out pretty cute.  It's small - 5-6 inches across, but it'll fit perfectly on a small wall.  I might do a larger one (with bigger leaves) for Christmas, in green with red beads.

Comments and criticism welcome!

160  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Question about cardboard, paint and contact paper ... on: April 04, 2010 03:16:25 PM
I'm trying to change the color of a box - would you suggest paint with clear contact paper (so the lids don't get stuck, etc.) or paper with contact paper?  As long as the top of the box (a small cardboard one with a separate top) fits and goes on and off easily, I'm happy. 

Or what other ideas do you lovely ladies have to change the colors?

Thank you in advance for any and all advice!
