651  Beaded spider pillow in Needlework: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 04:21:04 AM
This was my first beaded or embroidered anything and with the advice of kittykill (thank you so much!!), I think it turned out A-okay!   Grin

I didn't make the pillow it self.  Smiley

652  Drawstring pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 04:15:53 AM
It's not a purse, bag or wallet...but a lil' drawstring pouch.   Grin

It was my first & really like how it turned out.  Simple & fun and SO soft.  Smiley  Who doesn't love a lil' pouch anyway?   Cheesy

653  Wire/amethyst/beaded goddess pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 04:12:43 AM
She's a simple design...but that's probably why I like her.  Smiley

654  Amethyst fork bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 04:10:15 AM
After much hammering & bending...the final result.  The amethyst is held in by a prong, but also E6000'd because I'm a paranoid little crafter.  Wink

655  Spider slave bracelet in Beads: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 04:05:29 AM
I made this 'lil bugger (ha ha!) for a swap... Smiley  My hand model is a bit small in comparison to real life, but she rested perfectly on the palm of my hand.

I guess the fly is in case she gets hungry...  Cheesy

657  Starry Night...part deux! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: August 27, 2006 03:16:41 AM
I received a request for a Starry Night & since I couldn't pry the original from my fiance's paws... I made another!   Grin

I actually like this one better, but shhh.  LOL  Smiley  I've been melting quite a bit since the original & have improved some of my processes!  This one is much smoother and more glass-like.

The stars & moon glow in the dark on this one as well.  Smiley

658  Re: The Great Craftster Scavenger Hunt Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sweets4ever on: August 25, 2006 03:08:17 PM
Here's what I sent shylitlegoddess for an angel package.  Smiley
I did lots of stalking *cackle* and found out some really neat things about her...buhaha... Wink

I beaded a pillow as a spider web & then made a lil dangly spider for it (I didn't make the pillow Sad, I just beaded it)

I made her a little box that is supposed to look like an itty bitty trunk.
She wanted a box or Altoid tin.  It used to be a plain box...it's full of stuff I thought she would like...little gemstones, feathers, a dragonfly, some other stuff Wink

I've never used resin, but I sure have melted some beads!  So I melted some clear beads & encapsulated a spider (a rhinestone spider...Wink) for a keychain.

A little drawstring pouch...

A fork bracelet (she had one Wisted) with some amethyst cause she like purrrrple!  Smiley

Some glass bead & Swarovski crystal earrings...

Another box, but much bigger.  It was a plain wood box as well.
I dremelled the lid to make a fairy-like design, used watercolor pencils to add a bit of color, then sealed it all in.  I lined it with her pouch fabric and add some other little embellishments.
The inside image is from http://www.designsbywillow.com/  It's called "Spring's Arrival." 

A goddess necklace...

A spider slave bracelet/ring...

Her box fulla goodies...

659  Re: The Great Craftster Scavenger Hunt Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sweets4ever on: August 25, 2006 11:08:42 AM
Okies!  Here's my prize loot!   Shocked  I took closer pix of the swap participants' contributions & then one big shot of the mondo bunch of Sampler goods.  Smiley

Here's everything as it arrived.   Smiley

Lots of Sampler goodies!  I think these are from Kaesea's stash...but yell at me I'm wrong.  Smiley
Kind of counter-clockwise...
  • A heart/skulls card
  • Stuffed birdie ornament
  • Game piece pin
  • Zine
  • Cutest little ladybug mini clothes pin
  • Button pins...lots of them!
  • A marble magnet
  • Geisha girl keychain
  • A patch
  • Coffee soap
  • Goddess bookplate
  • Cellphone charm (I think)

From xladyluckx!  An awesome, double-sided slide necklace!  It's so cute!!  Not to mention her packaging.  Smiley  It says, "star-watching"  "Now what a sight!" and has an adorable lil' astronaut and rockets.   Grin

From SewPixie!  Two buttons & a "I (heart) craftster dot org" sticker!  The buttons are hella rad... scissor skull and "Craftster.org Uncork the Possibilities"  Cheesy

From Aeronberry!  This beautiful stuffed crane!  I love the fabric & he's weighted in his bottom so he won't fly the coop!  Cheesy

And last, but obviously not least, from Stifflersmom!

A beautiful reconned Altoid tin & cuff.  I wish I captured the sparkles & colors of the lid better in the photo.  Sad  There are micro beads, seed beads, long beads and medium beads all stuck together!  I'm not sure how...resin maybe?  Yowser...I'm in love with the cuff; it's my favorite.   Grin

Inside the tin is a mermaid stamp and she's netted in there!  Cheesy  The tins have melted bead lids...they have a special place in my heart.  Smiley  Tee hee!

After the first Altoid swap, she sent me some of these tins so I would participate in the next swap.  Later, I melted beads in the lid of one of them.  Last week, I sent my melted creation off in a personal swap.  This week...I got 3 of hers!  It's my destiny to have these tins in my possession you see.   Cheesy

Thank you everyone... I loves everything... it's amazing you could all contribute such perfect pieces w/o knowing who you were crafting for!  *hugs*   Kiss

660  My lil' diaper cake in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by sweets4ever on: August 20, 2006 10:05:55 PM
My first cake... I'm so proud.  Cheesy

The base is a scrapbook (in a box) secured with ribbon so the actual cake won't slide off.  The topper is a Precious Moments teddy.  The filling is 42, size 1 Pampers (layered, not rolled) & the frosting is blue with a thin layer of black & white polka dots.  Num!  Grin
