I spent the weekend cleaning my garage/studio/laundry room. I was going to post before and after pics, but the before was too embarassing. It had been a long time since I cleaned in there.
I know 2 of the 3 items I am making. I am trying something new, but I have all the supplies and tools I need and even backup supplies in case I screw something up. I should have the larger of the 3 items completed by the time I check in next week.
Hope all is going well with everyone, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Welcome roniwink! Which crafts are you looking to try? I'd love to know!
I can barely knit or crochet - I would love to be able to make amurigami, I have seen a lot of amazing ones on craftster. I also have a lot of albums I would like to turn into purses, but haven't tried yet. I would also like to make clothing and quilts. I just learned to sew and have a way to go before I audition for Project Runway. AND stained glass, one of these days I am going to make a stained glass panel. My husband calls my work area the craft explosion. I can't stick to one thing for very long or I get burnt out on it, so I need to have at least 3 projects in the air at once. Currently, hair barettes made out of bass guitar strings, ninja turtle shells for my nephews, and purses for my mom.
Great to meet everyone, I enjoyed reading everyon's bios. It looks like we have a great group.
OK, my bio: I work from home and I work midnights, so I most likely will not check out posts/reply to messages until the wee hours of the morning. I live in the United States near St. Louis, MO. I have been married for 10 years to my best friend. I have 2 teenage boys and lots of small nieces and nephews. I am always looking for new crafts to try. I like to make pet collars. My dog, Shadow, always has one of my creations on. Right now it says, I <3 socks because she loves to steal everone's socks and taunt them with them so they will play with her. I like to make jewlery, and I sometimes make my own chams with polymer clay. I like to work with glass and make stepping stones and mosaics. I just learned to sew this past year and have made a few projects I am proud of, but I am still working on mastering clothing. I have made a few purses, those are pretty fun. My mom is my best friend and in the summer we go to yard sales every Saturday morning, and I love to buy stuff and turn it into something else. I have a huge stockpile of albums, fabric, t-shirts, vases, etc, etc, that I have a ton of ideas for. I just discovered felting, and I can't wait until summer to buy tons of wool sweaters.
I'm 17 (18 in like 2 months ). I've been a long time creeper of craftster, and I'm deciding to get involved in stuff on here lol. My crafting obsessions are crocheting, knitting, sewing, and knotting bracelets, I do stuff other than that too, like embroidery and cross stitch but not nearly as much as I do the other stuff. I'm from Ontario, Canada I love love LOVE Criminal Minds (Reid's my favourite :3 he's so adorkable!) and I also love Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries Me thinks that's everything. oooohhhh and I love music! O.O it makes the world go round! :3 random fact, people that say catsup instead of ketchup annoy me lol
Hey, you need to give some of us exception to your catsup rule, because I grew up with this in my back yard: http://www.catsupbottle.com/ I was an adult before I found out that was the wrong spelling, LOL!!
I made these shark mittens for my nephew for Christmas. I started with the idea of embelishing premade mittens (ala Martha Stewart Monster Mittens on her web site), but decided to make my own from scratch. I made them more like puppets instead of traditional mittens. I had a lot of fun making them and he seemed to enjoy them. My sister-in-law said he wore them to school the next day.
