51  Re: Inchie My Theme Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ChameleonHound on: February 05, 2014 05:20:13 PM
I got completely spoiled by BigBangMomma! She was my partner for two swaps, so I got a whole bundle of cool in one package. (And if you want to see what else I got, head over to the One Tiny Surprise Thing swap gallery!)

First, she sent me this awesome puzzle made out of perler beads for my spring theme.

By the way, I am so glad you included a photo because it took me and a friend a long time to put it back in order after we took it out!
She also sent all of these lovely inchies too!

4 ocean themes, one perler palm tree, a flower, and the rest are recycling! I love these two the best, I think:

And the colorful stationery. BigBangMomma, how did you do that butterfly? I can't figure it out!

That elephant is super cute! I am also guilty of stealing boxes, for sure.  Grin

Check out this awesome tiny creation that our wonderful organizer sent me!

And the top so you can see the sparkles. (oooooooh!)

It's called "Even the penguin warms up by the fire." I love it!
Thanks BigBangMomma!

I got this awesome ATC from My_RubySlippers. I can't help but ooh and ahh over all of her stippled artwork! This is Smaug from The Hobbit!  Grin

54  Picture Frame turned Earring Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ChameleonHound on: January 27, 2014 07:00:12 PM
Hi there!

Inspired by posts on here and on Pinterest, I decided to make an earring holder for my sister-in-law.

I used a picture frame I found at the thrift store, and lace that I bought at JoAnn's. I first cut the lace to size and put fabric stiffener on it. I then hot-glued and folded the lace into place, and then bent a wire coat hanger into a good shape to support it.

Ta Da!

56  Nautilus Top Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ChameleonHound on: January 27, 2014 06:23:15 PM
I have a friend that loves lime green, and I found a top hat at Goodwill that was perfect.
Well, almost perfect. It needed something...

...like a paper cutout that turned it into a nautilus crown. Yes. Exactly.

57  The Doctor is MY Ace of Hearts. in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by ChameleonHound on: January 27, 2014 06:09:01 PM
Here is an ATC I made for a personal swap with My_RubySlippers. I saw that she was another Whovian like myself, and that she liked Aces from decks of cards. I came up with this:

She also likes Tim Burton, so I made The Doctor extra skinny in Burtonesque style. And, of course the suit had to be hearts.

Oh, and I couldn't let the back be some boring pattern. Wink

I like those seat cushions, are they made from t-shirts? That's ingenious.

I managed to decrease my craft stash, specifically my art supplies. I was big into art as a kid, and had collected tons of supplies since then. I had a bunch of big tubs of markers, crayons, colored pencils, and pom poms, as well as a box of tempera paint, a bunch of oil pastels, popsicle sticks, chalk... it was a lot of stuff, and I managed to give most of it away!

All of this stuff went to LUND, a non-profit group here in VT that focuses on early education and women/children's shelters. Feels good to get rid of it, but it feels really good to have found someone who can put it to good, creative use!

59  Re: 50 Projects 2014--Let's continue the craftiness! in Craftalongs by ChameleonHound on: January 18, 2014 08:00:22 PM
Yay, I finally get to post something! All of my completed crafts so far before this have been for swap partners that haven't received them yet, so I can't post them. (Though let it be known that there has been 1 item, an ATC and a set of inchies completed).

But, today I made myself a calendar! I really needed one to help me organize timelines, and unbeknownst to me, my father got me off of the Audubon mailing list, so no more free labels and calendars.  Sad

It would take up too much room to post all of the calendar pages, but I used photos of Bar Harbor that a friend took - I went to school there, and I really miss it. I bound the edges with some yellow ribbon that I tore off some pj pants. Yay for de-stashing!

Oh, and the sticky notes are reminding me of projects to finish. There are many more below the edge of the picture.  Roll Eyes

On to the next task: finishing this F?@#!^& hat.

60  Solar Lamp Night Light in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ChameleonHound on: January 09, 2014 09:34:08 AM
I wanted to share with you a project that I made back at the beginning of last year, mostly because it's making me think of warmer things.

This is a night light solar lamp that I put together for the daughter of a swap partner. (She likes butterflies). I wasn't sure exactly how this would come together when I first thought of the idea, I knew I was going to use the glass paint a friend had lent me, and some kind of solar light. So I scouted around, and found a set of lights at Lowes for about $8, the kind you stab into the ground at a campsite or something.

Like these:

I had the original idea of pulling the solar panel out of the light, and putting it in a mason jar with a ring lid (and it was just the right size), but I quickly learned that these lights weren't meant to be pulled all apart. So instead I went to Goodwill and found a vase that was about the right size.

I just used the top part of the lights, and I put a ring of hot-glue on the underside to help it sit on the vase without slipping. (You can also see the kind of light I used).

I then covered the vase with butterflies and a caterpillar out of the glass paint I had. It was simple stuff probably for kids crafts, but it worked rather well. I had to be careful how it dried though, so I didn't get long runny marks.

I thought it looked just okay, until after dark when I turned it on for the first time. Boy was I excited! The effect was just like stained glass!

I strongly encourage you to try it! I saw some instructions on how to do this with stained glass jars and even how to make your own glass paint.

Happy Crafting!
