361  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Quilled card (my first quilling!) on: December 03, 2007 12:30:17 PM
Don't laugh, but I am entirely excited about this card. Cheesy  It was the very first time I tried to quill anything and I love how it turned out! Grin

362  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Melted bead Day of the Dead wallhanging on: December 03, 2007 12:28:04 PM
Verrry colorful melted bead wallhanging I made for a swap.  I didn't drill holes in the top for ribbon because I wasn't sure if she would want to hang or lean it.  She said she is going to drill the holes & hang it for sure, though! Smiley

It's pretty big - I used a big ole cake pan to form the beads.  It's the same size as this elephant http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160351.0 so it's 16" in diameter.

363  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Spoon/star necklace! on: December 03, 2007 12:23:37 PM
I made this for a swap! Smiley  It was inspired by this piece.  I'm entirely addicted and am making all sorts of pieces from our wedding silverware now. Cheesy

Edited to insert some tutorial information provided later in the thread. Smiley

I used the one on the right right to drill the initial hole and to drill out the entire star shape.  I just looked it up in my Dremel's manual and it's the Tungsten Carbide Cutter.  "These are tough, long-lived cutters for use on hardened steel, fired ceramics, and other very hard materials.  They can be use for engraving on tools and garden equipment.  1/8" shanks."

I used the one on the left to sand all over in long, smooth movements.  It made it super shiny and removed any ugly surface blemishes.  I couldn't find that one in the manual, but I think it's some sort of grinding stone?  Maybe someone will post here and tell me! Smiley

Edit with more info! Smiley
I bought the dremel cutting bit today at Home Depot.  The part number is 9903 and cost around $7.50 in case anyone was wondering.
364  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Button wreath ornament on: December 03, 2007 12:17:42 PM
I made this little piece for a swap.  I used Martha's tutorial and LOTS of buttons... Smiley

365  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Simple swallow necklace on: December 03, 2007 12:13:02 PM
Simple, but pretty, I think! Smiley  The necklace/chain is a combination of two old necklaces I repurposed.  I bought the pendant at Michael's.

366  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bicycle chain bracelet on: December 03, 2007 12:10:45 PM
The subject line is pretty self-explanatory! Smiley  I made this for a swap.  She has a pink Shwinn, so I wove some bright pink ribbon in there and added a little bicycle charm near the clasp.

367  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bead fork bracelet on: December 03, 2007 12:08:52 PM
I made this for a swap. Smiley  She just PM'd me to let me know she's received, so here it is! Smiley

Here's another one I made for a swap last year, too http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=117157.0  Lots of fun! Smiley

368  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Personal/Private Swap Gallery December 2007 on: December 01, 2007 04:41:44 PM
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 month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

369  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / The new Photobucket widget on: November 16, 2007 03:29:23 PM
It looks like Photobucket upgraded/updated the widget.  Is it really slow loading for anyone else?  I'm not liking it. Undecided

I used to be able to doubleclick on the active picture and it automatically copied the IMG code for me.  Now, I doubleclick on it & it says "copied" but it's not actually copying for me.

Is it just me?

Where o' where did my happy Photobucket go? Cheesy
