1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 51 ENTRIES / Vintage Bingo Card Lamp on: June 06, 2010 05:59:17 PM
This is more of a work in progress, but I wanted to post and share with the other Craftsters, since it was inspired by this challenge. I am so amazed by some of the entries so far, so just know that my vote will be going elsewhere!  Wink

However, I was at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and scored these two awesome games for a QUARTER each. Yes!



I absolutely loved the vintage bingo game, especially the awesome box top, which I plan to use as wall art. The Mr. T card game is too precious to cut up or glue at this point, so it's going to stay a game.



I thought the bingo cards had such a cool look that I wanted to incorporate into my living space in an unconventional way. I went shopping for a lamp and shade at a local antique shop. Stripped the shade and dusted off the old lamp. The bingo cards are simply taped on here in rows until I get the final configuration. (Wanting to see what they'll look like side-by-side instead of overlapped.) But I'm super happy with the red and blue rows, so that element is definitely staying.



Thoughts? Anyone know how I could easily adjust the inner wire on the lampshade so that the top and bottom rings are the same circumference? (As is, the bottom is wider, meaning I have to overlap the cards.) Wire cutters, or bend the wire in on the bottom ring? It's pretty thick.
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Anyone else obsessed with The Bachelor / The Bachelorette? (Mini swap) on: June 02, 2010 10:33:22 AM
Do you regularly partake in the guilty pleasure that is ABC's The Bachelor?

TV swaps are popular on Craftster, however, I'm definitely a reality TV girl. In fact, check out this awesome Bachelor-inspired rose. When I told tracethekat I was Bachelor obsessed, she made me this awesome little memento to tide me over between seasons!



This had me wondering... if there's enough interest, I'd love to organize a low-pressure, Bachelor / Bachelorette Mini Swap (3 points) inspired by the show. It would be the perfect way to combine two of my loves, crafting and Bachelor blogging. Any takers?
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first two quilts on: January 22, 2010 10:34:57 AM
Here are my two first quilts I ever made. The "crazy" quilt was a baby shower gift I made from charm packs purchased on eBay. The big blocks quilt was made from Amy Butler and some other fun fabrics!
