21  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Wall Facade on: September 08, 2015 11:14:34 AM
Bragging on my rockstar husband, mr.sweets4ever, today. ✮

We've had this wire-cluttered ugly wall in our downstairs family room for yearrrrrs (since 2002, oops). Our home is a split level, so this room is partially underground and does not allow for wires to be routed into the walls. He got a wild hair this weekend and whipped up this facade!

He ran furring strips horizontally and attached interlocking floor laminate to them.  You can't tell, but they are applied in panels, so he still has access points in case he needs to access/adjust any of the wiring over time.

So pretty. Me love. He rocks.

Craft Challenge #109 - Swap & Share 4 - Entries Due Aug 10 - Aug 17 (updated!)

Winner Announced!

Congrats to Wulf for the winning entry, "Dio de los Muertos Shrine"!



Check out Wulf's full project thread here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440337.0

Read the blog about this challenge, too!



We're bringing back one of our most popular craft challenges -- SWAP & SHARE!

This month, you won't be crafting anything right now!  For this craft challenge, we want to encourage you to share a project that you've never posted a thread for previously.  The crafty kicker -- it has to be a project that you've sent in a Craftster Craft Swap.  Over time, so many amazing projects get buried in the Swap Galleries, but people forget to post them on the project boards.  Let's expose them!! Smiley

Your project can be any medium, technique, size or shape you desire, as long as you sent it for an organized Craftster Craft Swap! Smiley  The project must not already have its own Completed Project thread.  It's totally okay if it was already shared within a Swap Gallery, though!

When the challenge is complete, we'll tag and move all of the projects to their proper category boards. Smiley

For this unique challenge, the requirements are bit more specific than usual, so be sure to read them very carefully:
  • Post your project on the entry board from (Aug 10 - Aug 17, 2015) only.  Your project must be something you crafted and sent for an organized Craftster Craft Swap.  It cannot be something made for a personal swap or swap on another site.  It can be a project you sent as an angel package for a Craftster Craft Swap, though. Smiley
  • In your entry thread, share the title and link to the swap for which you crafted the project.  Feel free to give a little shout out to your partner in your thread, too! Smiley
  • Share at least one photo of your project, but more are always encouraged.  If you are entering your project with photos your recipient captured, please privately contact and ask for their permission to use their photos.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • On August 10, 2015, there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Aug 10 - Aug 17 11:59:59 PDT 2015.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Aug 26 - 31, 2015.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month -- in our September newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Craft Challenge #108 - Live Events - Entries Due May 1 - May 10 May 20

Winners Announced!

Winners, winners!  THREE winners this month!  Congrats to fluffypants, LovelyMiss and NoShowJr for their winning entries this month!

Monkees Concert Shrine by fluffypants


Concert coin and card purse by LovelyMiss


Concert Series (Bluegrass Nights at the Ryman) Ticket Scrapbook

The winners this month were featured on Ticketmaster, in our newsletter and, of course, received those epic prize packages!  Read more about this challenge and the winners blogon our blog!



This month, thanks to Ticketmaster, we're showing our love for live events from concerts, to Broadway shows, and more!  Your mission this month is to craft a project that shows major love to one of your favorite live events or productions!  Concerts, sporting events, family entertainment, music festivals, arts & theatre, you name it!  You can use any crafting mediums of your choosing as long as your project features or pays homage to a live, ticketed event of some sort! Smiley

Maybe your project will actually incorporate that old ticket from the very first play you ever attended.  Or maybe you'll create a project from scratch such as an awesome concert ticket embroidery pillow! Grin  Perhaps you could create the perfect music festival headband, bag or other accessories.  You could even create an epic quilt from all of those concert tshirts you've been hoarding over the years. Wink

Ticketmaster has provided a bundle of prizes for the challenge this month!  The first and second place winners will be selected by our community voting poll here on Craftster.  The third place winner will be selected by a panel of judges at Ticketmaster!  Oh!  And a little birdie told us that the panel of judges would love to see some sort of nod to barcodes, locks, etc. (security-related concepts) included in the winning project.  How cool would it be to add a secret barcode to your project? Grin  Wonder what it would say!

Here are just a few Craftster projects that might inspire you for this challenge! Kiss
Ticket Stub Shadowbox Collection by Chocolate_Jo
Transformed Concert Tshirt by FoxyBlue
Baseball Coin Purse by Calabaza
Concert Tshirt Quilt by ZidishaLuxe

Smiley  Cheesy  Grin This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community! Grin  Cheesy  Smiley

Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

Each year a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, this year, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine Cards for Teachers and Friends on: February 13, 2015 06:38:15 AM
So fun!  I let baby.sweets4ever choose the free printable and then we went to town on them. He drew and doodled pictures and notes on the back of each, too.

Our school mascot is a panda, so he made these for teachers and staff.


He made these for friends. Mazes are from Oriental Trading and we adhered them with glue dots.
