41  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Craft room goodies on: January 05, 2013 09:00:04 AM
To join my To Do List, I made a few more things for the walls of my craft area to help keep me organized.

The magnet board and two small bulletin boards:

The magnet board, up close is below.  It used to be the top of a big popcorn tin.  I put some sticky ribbon (the kind you can get for $1 at Joann's) around the edges (it's turquoise) and then used some double sided tape to put a pretty patterned paper on the inside.  I then attached a circle of paper and a matching button to a magnet to create the magnets.

Then the bulletin boards are what used to be two cork trivets from IKEA.  These were way easy - just hot glued a bow to the center and then attached a matching length of ribbon to hang it.  I glued buttons to push pins to make it match.  Smiley

Finally, to begin organizing my paper stash, I cut one of the flat rate boxes from the post office in half, covered it with paper and ribbon and then sealed the ends to get two color-coordinated boxes.

The awesome thing about these projects is that the popcorn top, the trivets, and the flat rate boxes, plus the paper, magnets, buttons, and most of the ribbon were from stash.  YAY free organizing projects!
42  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Purse Craftalong? on: December 29, 2012 09:09:30 PM
Would anyone be interested in a craft along centered on making a purse?  We could choose a pattern or a type (hobo, messenger, etc. etc.) and then see what everyone comes up with.

Thoughts?  Interest?

43  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / To Do List on: December 29, 2012 04:09:27 PM
I'm beginning to redo my craft area - which was formerly known as my dining room, but since I hardly use it for dining, I might as well go whole hog and get serious about making it crafty.

I made my first project today, with the help of my new Cricut.  I turned a cheap wooden frame from Walmart into a crafty To Do list board.

I'm, obviously, going with a lightblue/turquoise and red color scheme for the craft room.  I'll be posting some more of my little projects as I begin to get more into the redecoration!
44  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / PBW Awesome Projects From Years Past on: December 21, 2012 05:41:07 PM
I've seen 'I'm so glad I found this project' left as a comment on many older purses, bags, and wallets, so I figured, as the new year approaches (and apparently, the end of the world doesn't), I thought it'd be fun to look back on some popular projects from years past.  My criteria were threefold:

1. It wasn't a tutorial.
2. It had pictures.
3. I also didn't want to choose projects that were featured previously (though not sure how successful I was with this - not all projects were tagged!).

So I went to the This Rocks list and spent some time perusing.   It was a ton of fun, and here are our first round of Blasts from the Past.  

I hope you find some inspiration for 2013.  If you have any favorite projects from before 2011, feel free to PM me for our next Blast!   

Remember - old projects need feedback love, too!  Smiley
45  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Food on: December 20, 2012 06:09:57 PM
I claimed the delightful ehinders for felt food for her daughter in the Ongoing Holiday Wishlist Swap.  I got some machine embroidery patterns from swakembroidery.com and went to town!

Here's the sandwich and chips.  The sandwich includes 2 pieces of bread, a slice of cheese, a slice of meat (mystery meat, perhaps!), lettuce, and a slice of tomato.  However, I think the chips and the chip bag were my favorite to do!

And now some yarn spaghetti with marinara.  (The marinara is the same file as the lettuce from the sandwich, just in red.)

(Sorry for the rotten pictures.  I need to buy myself a camera ...)
46  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Why buy a bag? on: December 15, 2012 09:38:41 AM
After seeing something similar on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it!  I used patterned red paper, plain black ribbon, gold paper, white paper, yarn, a gift tag punch, a scalloped edger punch (bunched both sides of a strip) and one of the awesome stamps that jexxican made me in the Stocking swap to make this festive wine bottle decoration.  I'm giving it as a gift, so it's all ready for the holiday party tonight!

49  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Opinions! on: December 14, 2012 08:33:21 AM
If you were going to make a bag for yourself, what would you include?  I'm trying to decide what purse I want to make - actually one for myself that I won't give away - and I'm waffling between something simple or something that will challenge my abilities.  Obviously, I am having some decision-making issues, so any input would be appreciated.

I currently have a small purse, which has its benefits, but also its drawbacks, so I think I'm going for a medium-sized purse.  Perhaps with a zipper!
