1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Skyline Pumpkin on: October 28, 2015 08:11:30 PM
I hope pumpkins count as crafts, because I'm pretty proud of my Des Moines, Iowa skyline pumpkin! This is for a work pumpkin decorating contest.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Wedding Day Ornament on: October 21, 2015 08:00:46 PM
I just made this for my friend, for whom I was her Matron of Honor.

The tulle is from my bouquet, the white fabric is the extra that we cut from her lacings when we laced and tied her into her gown, and the other paper is her program, shredded so they all read like "Matron of Honor Kelsey Seay.......Friend of the Bride" and then curled and dropped into the ornament.
I am super proud of this and sad that I haven't done it for every other wedding that I've been a part of. It's really easy and very meaningful for the couple.

Found these eensy little measuring spoons at the crafts store today and the wheels got to turning (or the blender got to blending may be more appropriate!) and made this today. Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook with red Swarovski Crystal beads and the measuring spoons.

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Bookish/Gamer Baby Photos on: September 03, 2015 08:48:58 PM
Just did some photos as a gift to my good friends who just had a baby. I've done the studio thing, but it was too formulaic, I love photographing people in their own element/home. Here are a couple favorites: Ellie's parents do table top games, hence the level 1 human character sheet blanket and dice, and they were married with a reading from Don Quixote for the other photo's backstory.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hogwarts Textbook Stack Necklace on: August 29, 2015 02:40:58 PM
While working on a few Harry Potter stack necklaces, I had an epiphany: I needed to make one with some magical textbooks!
And of course, I had to add The Maurader's Map to top it off!

7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Scottish Renaissance Dress on: August 24, 2015 12:35:55 PM
For my husband's birthday, us and a couple friends went to the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. We had found some tartan that was or very very closely resembled the Stewart hunting tartan, so he went in a great kilt and I had to make myself a dress and bodice to go under my earisaid. Here is the dress sans earisaid and with the sleeves that I ended up opting not to wear saying blast historical inaccuracy, it's going to be hot!

The under-dress is actually jut a shirt to keep me cool and create less bulk on what is a predominantly wool outfit.

Here it is with the earisaid hanging loose, then pinned up for a more dignified look.

I also made a quick bag cover for my camera case to hang on my belt.

Will add a couple more photos when I get home.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mini Disney Golden Book Necklaces on: August 03, 2015 08:54:54 PM
I made a couple mini book necklaces with Disney Golden Books and I fell in love with them so much that I almost couldn't pack them up to send to their new owner! I may need to make myself some!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dresden Files Mini Book Bracelet on: August 03, 2015 08:52:04 PM
I made this Dresden Files charm for a bookmark for the husband, but listening to a Dresden audio book while working made me rethink that because, really,  I just needed another bracelet Wink Included with the book is Harry's pentacle necklace, a hat for his cowboy-inspired attire, Bob's skull, and Mister.

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Plushie Hop Cone! on: July 30, 2015 09:16:16 PM
My husband and I brew beer. I also work in the beverage industry, so it is not a stretch that I was looking at a pattern for a crochet dragon egg and realized that I NEEDED to make a plushie hop cone. Here it is!

It stands about 8" from tip to stem and is done with less than one skein of Loops & Threads Impeccable in Grass for the cone and a handful of Red Heart in Spring Green for the leaves.

In process shot:

It took about 4-5 hours off and on and approximately 3 beers to make.
I love it, and will probably make another and use them for decorations on my couch or something!
