We have a sender already!
And now we have a gallery. Grin
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 'Heard it Through the Grapevine' Earcuff on: July 23, 2011 08:33:12 AM
Inspired by a few other ear cuffs I've seen popping up around here lately, I created this for my mommy! She really likes it, and after I was done tweaking it a bit to fit her ear exactly, she said it feels like it's not even there. The second picture shows one of the two little danglies better.




p.s. First post not swap-related! w00t!
3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Smoothing edges? (for safety) on: July 13, 2011 12:55:37 PM
I'm planning to make a wind chime out of pieces of different colored glass. Obviously I don't want shards of glass flying around in the air, especially since the house it's going to has children... Any good tips on how to round out the edges? I thought about putting the pieces in a rock tumbler (for that 'I found this in a river bank' feel) but I don't want to damage the tumbler.
4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Recycled Outdoor Dcor Swap (Sendout: 8/6) on: July 01, 2011 04:45:57 PM
:: Gallery ::


Craftster member who is organizing this swap: realityinvazion
Sign-up date range: 7/1- 7/9
Date to send item by: 8/6


Yards and porches and windowsills all need pretties like living rooms and kitchens do. And unless you live in a dungeon, you have one, two, or all three of the above. What sets outdoor decor apart is that is must be able to withstand whatever mother nature throws at it. And if we care about her enough to create pieces with special restrictions just to glamor up our earth, we might as well do her another favor and create the pieces using waste free, up-cycled, and altered materials. Wind chimes, plant holders, welcome signs, garden gnomes, and pink flamingos; all of the above are acceptable and encouraged, as is anything else you can think of. Just make sure it's waterproof.  Wink

As long as anybody but me shows interest in this, I will be starting this swap fairly soon. Like, within the week soon, because I'm sure we'd all love to receive before the summer is completely over. Grin
4 point swap requiring at least one medium?
Or 5 point requiring a large?
Is a month too long or too short for crafting time?
Any other opinions?
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jewelry (and Hair Accessory?) Swap on: June 02, 2011 06:34:24 PM
So, this is a pretty open ended idea... I know I want to do a jewelry swap-- I've been looking for one to be a part of for a while now, and haven't found one. But I guess there has to be more people than just me wanting to do it. Grin

We could also do headbands and hair clips if anyone was interested. I know I'd like to do it, but if you'd rather just be specific to jewelry that's fine, too.
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Quidditch Costume Help, please! on: September 20, 2010 03:29:25 PM
http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_sRnCFguoG1U/RwVqh9RwLFI/AAAAAAAABiI/uTxqhi8QDXo/s320/hqu1.jpg

Instead of using my traditional Gryffindor uniform like I have for the past six midnight movie premiers, I've made the decision to make a full Quidditch uniform.

The robe and pants, etc. should be no problem for me. I've had plenty of experience with fabric. The problem I'm looking at is the gloves, and the shin and arm guards. I have no problem buying a pair of gloves, but have no idea how to tackle the shin and arm guards. I've never worked with leather, and while I'm up to learn I don't think this would be the best starter project, haha!

I was thinking about the possibilities of adding something to a pair of boots? I'm up for any kind of suggestions and any ideas on making a believable rip-off too, because I'm totally stumped on this one.

Thanks for all comments!

8  UNITED STATES / Indiana / Fashion Shows? on: September 12, 2010 04:02:20 PM
I was wondering if anyone knew of any opportunities to show wearable art or clothing of any kind in the Indianapolis area, whether past or future. I'm looking for something to get involved in. Any suggestiongs?
