731  Tori Amos Glass Decoration in Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: June 02, 2005 04:35:06 PM
My boyfriend & I ordered the pre-sale CD & DVD of her last album...and they sent this poster & "The Beekeeper Mix" (flower seeds).  We aren't much for decorating with posters anymore, and I couldn't bring myself to tearing open the seed packet...So, I mounted them both on a glass shelf we had from a stand we weren't using. 

I decorated the poster to accent what she was already wearing.. Ie... her necklace (beaded it), her shirt (added lacing), and th safety pin that held her shirt together (added a brass safety pin to the lacing).  Added some gold gltter to her hair to "highlight" it, though you cannot see it in the photos. 

Decorate the seed packet with some doo-dads.

Haven't hung her yet (that sounds strange, lol) but going to mount her on the wall with clear mirror brackets.

I like the simplicity, yet beauty of it... it's soothing & inspirational, as her music is to me.  Cheesy  It was fun... thought I would share.

Without & with flash...

Close up of seeds...

Close up her detailing on her blouse...

Well, the photos are a bit old...by a year or so, but you get the idea. ;-) 
I have some bins and drawered containers with beads & goodies beneath the drafting table.  It's massive, so provide lots of storage space below.  It's positioned perfectly in the house...as it faces the front flower bed, so I can see/hear the birdies & water fountain *happy sigh*

I painted the room in a "suede" finish... it's difficult to explain, but if you haven't seen it before.. it actually looks & almost feels... like suede... You can read more about the faux finish here, http://www.sherwin-williams.com/do_it_yourself/painting_techniques/faux_painting_process/softsuede/  I forget what color mine is.. it's a bit darker than in some of the bright photos... like a deep wine.. ;-)  The ceiling is really deep grey, darker than battleship grey, but I swear it looks good (and not morbid, lol).

My buddy, SoBe, is my crafting partner... he's pretty quiet, but I know, deep down, he enjoys watching me craft.  ;-) Bella is ALWAYS around, too.

Here... we enter from the hallway...

On the right wall, just a silly zig zag shelf I made & some thrift store finds...

Part of my drafting table & lots of clutter Sad

To my left, if I am sitting at the table (it used to be a closet...now it's SoBe's Condo)...

Show off...(SoBe)

Here's me... when we were building the Condo...

Hey girl... you did great uploading them! 

You can learn how by clicking the "HELP" link at the top of this screen...go to #6 Mechanics of Posting & then Posting Pictures in Your Message

In short, when you click on the photo in your gallery, there is link "UBB Code" already created for you, it's at the bottom of the page with the photo on it.  If you copy that address (highlight it & Ctrl+C), then paste (Ctrl+V) it in your message here, you're picture will appear... 

Here they are!

734  Surfing Altoid Tin! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: May 25, 2005 07:34:02 PM
Inspired by the "Skating Tin" http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2071.0

I made this as part of the Altoid Tin Swap, but thought I would share here, as well.  The surfer & jet skiier have magnets on their bottoms, so when you move the magnets on the bottom of the tin... they move around the water!

735  Altoid Tin & Fuzzy Pop Tab Belt! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: May 25, 2005 07:26:44 PM
I did this as part of the Altoid Tin swap, but I thought I would share here as well...!! Cheesy

My partner listed deep turquoise and faeries as some of her likes.  I also discovered she likes feathers, so I went for a feathery/fuzzy feel!

The belt is a classic pop tab concoction, but with fuzzy knitting yarn.  The buckle is an oblong Altoid tin decoupaged with a fairy garden image.  Cheesy  I had the yarn hanging down in the photo...but it could be tied in a bow, or tucked in the tin, too.

so it's cookie tin-sized, and it just looks like an altoid can? or is it just a reeeeaaaally small purse?

Laugh.. I didn't even think of it like that.. teehee!  It's cookie tin-sized... here's the full photo so you can see the regular sized Altoid tins in comparison...

OH MY GOODNESS! I must have some good karma because I got the MOST amazing package. Not one or two but FOUR tins and one is HUGE! I will post pics tomorrow but I must warn you- you will be green with envy  Wink. Thank you so much sweets4ever! You really outdid yourself and I love everything. If you already have pics feel free to post them otherwise I will manana. Mahalo!!!!!

Oh... thank goodness.  I am so happy you like them; I was awful worried!!  Swappers jitters to the max, LOL.  You were awesome to swap with, I have so many materials that fit perfect to the profile you provided...and you are so funky/cute, it was a lot of fun!  I do have pictures... I am a photo-holic.  Probably a little too much, lol.  Here are some... and the rest can be found at http://www.columbusgamers.com/sweetness/altoidtins.htm

Here's the before  Undecided

Here's the after  Smiley
First, I made a little trinket tin out of a round Altoid tin.  It's beaded with my rendition of a tattoo Hawaiilove has Wink  I put together a little Wax Sealing Kit with her initial and one of her favorite shapes & tucked it inside.

Then I made a belt... she said she liked faeries (& I read she liked feathers)... I made it out of pop tabs & fuzzy (feather-like, lol!) knitting yarn, and an oblong altoid tin with a decoupage image of a fairy garden.

Then... I made a beach from a rectangular tin.  I thought she could teach her daughter to ski & jetski in it, LOL.  There are magnets on the bottom, so the little people move around on the water... Hawaiilove doesn't like pastels, so I hope she forgives the colors... Sad  I'm a dork & didn't see that until I painted the base.

Lastly, I wanted something to pack the goodies in, so I used a humongous Altoid tin we had.  I received it at Christmas with an Altoid assortment...so it was perfect for a purse!  ;-)  I rockabillied it out (or I tried to) with decoupaged images, and some pink polka dots, lol.  I used a bike chain choker for the handle.

I got mine from Hawaiilove ALREADY! 

She just mailed Saturday...and it's here in Ohio already!! WOOHOO!  She took a rectangular Altoid tin & painted it a beautiful metallic turquoise/teal... the top is covered in shell sand...THEN a layer of colorful, intricate shells... LOTS of them!  ;-)  The inside is painted swirly blue... like the ocean!  It's so neat!  I hope my pictures do it even half justice...cause it's really pretty & reminds me of my vacations...   A mini vacation for my desk Cheesy  Thank you so much Hawaiilove...
