1  Perler bead Charger Mama! in CHALLENGE 55 ENTRIES by littlestarr on: October 07, 2010 10:47:44 PM
Hey Guys!!!  Grin

So I think I might have been crazy attempting this challenge with the house on the market, a two year old, a full time job and life....

Here it is!

I didn't get the full scale done that I was looking to do so what's a mama to do?! Change course! I first found the picture I wanted to use and slapped a grid on it. That took forever in itself. Then I quickly realized that was going to be a whole headache of a mess. Oh well I say.

I decided to try things a bit differently, and from the original step came up with this. Which was supposed to be appliqud to a tote bag for my mom for Christmas. It still will get done, just not in time for this challenge. Sorry Mom!

I was always going to do this bit, after much hemming and hawing over having to sort beads, I sunk right in. 4 - 9 hour days of work later they were all successfully sorted. We all know how that goes with a 2 year old on the loose... No matter how well I think I have hid things, she always gets into them. No matter, they were resorted.

Then comes the work on mama. Did I mention the house was for sale? In the midst of making mama someone decided they wanted to see the house. I am all for it, whatever gets it sold, but mama had to be put up. I had her outline done and had started filling her in when I had to put her up. My DH then decided that he had to put something away right on top of her.... Back to square one....

I'm not easily deterred though. And back to work I went. Mom now has a mama charger for her salad plate at dinner. It is wicked cute if I do say so myself, and will keep the horrible rings from condensation off of their antique cherry wood table. Smiley

Hope you enjoyed!

So here is it! My fantabulous stuff!

The impossible to open box...

Which I eventually got open. Smiley

And pulled out all the goodies... A Hatter poppet, an Alice rag doll, a NBC notebook, two jack stitch markers, two awesome bookmarks with quotes on both sides (one is Corpse Bride and the other Alice) Smiley, a couple of postcards from her home town, and an "eat me" pin cushion

Kassaundra stole Alice (that is ok it was for her and she LOVES her!) Thank you!

 She also tried to steal the hatter, but he is mine. Smiley

Thank you so much for everything!

First off I LOVE the needle punch. Wow is all I can say to that.

I had SO much fun crafting for you! I put pictures up in my gallery of everything. Here are some pictures of the bracelet. It took FOREVER to do. So worth it. I used the tea cup as a poser. Lol. The box was one of my favorites to do. It took a bit of rigging to get it right.

4  Wedding Owl Couple lots of pix in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by littlestarr on: June 17, 2010 08:01:11 AM
This is my first post here at Craftster. I have enjoyed reading everything on here and decided it was about time to participate so I signed up!  Smiley I made these as the wedding topper for my Cake. The owls even matched our outfits! We had a fallish theme with owls. The owls were my absolute favorite out of everything I made for the wedding. This was my first time working with Polymer clay and boy was it a pain. It took me probably 8 hours total working time to get them done. Next time I think I will need to invest in some tools other than my hands. It was so much fun though! All the white bits are actually made with glow in the dark. I tried to get a picture of it but my camera doesn't like the dark apparently. Enjoy!
