631  Re: Gumpaste / Sugarflowers instead of "real" flowers? in Weddings and Bridal Showers by sweets4ever on: December 01, 2006 06:03:41 PM
We are getting married in a rose garden, so I thought flowers would be overkill.  We are doing crystal bouquest & boutts.  My bouquet will have some flowers, but it will also have crystals.

Like these (not this color or exact design, but you get the idea)..

I believe there is a tute on here somewhere for them.  Smiley

632  Re: help! i found a bug in my yarn stash! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sweets4ever on: December 01, 2006 06:16:06 AM
Is this similar to what you saw?

If it is, like Jodi suggested, you have moth larvae.  Smiley  Here is some info...
WEBBING CLOTHES MOTH:  With the decreased use of pesticides on textiles, the incidence of clothing and rugs damaged by the Webbing Clothes moth has increased significantly in recent years. Fabrics injured by clothes moths have holes eaten through them by small, white larvae. Materials left undisturbed for some time or stored in dark places (such as a closet, attic, or drawer) are most severely injured by these insects. The adults are small and champagne-colored. They can often be seen running over the surface of the infested goods when exposed to light or flying somewhat aimlessly about the houses or closets. Clothing moth larvae (immatures) feed on wool, hair, feathers, furs, upholstered furniture, occasionally on dead insects, dry dead animals, animal and fish meals, milk powders such as casein, and nearly all animal products such as boar bristles, dried hair and leather. Adults do not eat.  (http://www.insectslimited.com/pherhome.htm)

You'll definitely want to treat the area to prevent the lil' buggers from munching on your yarn!  There are alternatives to mothballs though... here are some ideas:

I just started last week.  I thought I would never get a single row done, lol!  Here's my little practice piece.

I'm the proud owner of a blanket big enough for a bug.   Grin

Had to come & show my love for Pinky's coasters!!  Smiley  I love the pebble ones.. they're on my list of things to try in the someday future!

WOoohoo... and the links to her first set go to MY coasters!  Yes, MINE!  She made them all for me and I love them so much.  Cheesy  My fiance & I are cyclists so she made them with bicycle gears & parts...how sweet was that?   Kiss

I can't believe they were her first set though.. they are so lovely in person.

635  Re: Melted Beads & Rhinestones Trinket Tin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sweets4ever on: November 18, 2006 08:54:59 PM
For this one I used clear multi faceted beads like these...

I'm sure clear pony beads would work though.  I just have a preference to multi facet beads for clear & transparent pieces...not sure why really.  Smiley

I set the rhinestones in the pattern with a few clear beads around it to get them to stay in their pattern, then I baked it.  Once the first few clear beads had the pattern slightly stuck in place, I plopped a few more on top of it to make it seal over the pattern & baked it again.

637  Another of my melted bead lampshades :) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: November 13, 2006 04:54:37 AM
Here's my first one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0

And here's my second!  Smiley  I used a few strands of valentine heart beads and then a mix of multi facet beads to fill the gaps.  It's taller than the first one, so you can't see the bulb from any angle this time - yay!

I LOVE the hue it casts on the wall.

I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought I would add another lampshade I made a while back... Smiley

639  Gorilla & electrical tape artist portfolio in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: November 13, 2006 01:54:44 AM
I made this for my partner in a swap because she has lots of matted artwork & she wanted something to store 'em in.  Smiley

For the sides I used a sequined scarf & criss-crossed it with yarn just for extra support.

The flower design is from a purse on her Wists.

640  Beaded Eggshell decorations/ornaments in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: November 13, 2006 01:46:14 AM
I made these for a swap.  My partner likes to make Christmas ornaments, so I made her some all-year-round ornaments; one decoupaged with floral because she loves yellow roses, the other with astrological stuff because she loves science. Smiley
