2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Thread Catcher on: July 12, 2014 12:15:54 PM
I finally got around to sewing up a thread catcher for myself.  I used this Thread Catcher Pattern from The Polka Dot Apron.

While it didn't turn out quite how I was planning.  I like how it ended up.

And for some reason I'm obsessed with making things reversible.  So here are the two forms.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First project on: May 30, 2014 04:10:08 PM
I've recently been trying to learn to crochet.  This is my very first project.

Its a swiffer cover.

And action shot.

It came out a little bit bigger than I was thinking, and a little wonky, but all in all I think it came out good.  =)
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Science Swap? on: May 24, 2014 05:17:26 PM

So I am a huge science nerd, and I'm hoping that many of you are as well!?

Would anyone be interested in a science themed swap? 

Are you crazy about molecules on everyday items like cups, bags, clothes?  Or maybe love ecology and want to include local flora or fauna to represent your love?  Or maybe you want to deck out your walls in laboratory art?  Or maybe you are more interested in Gray's anatomy art?  Or you could be like me and love the small bugs that you need a microscope to see.  The ideas could be limitless!

So what do you think?

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / A week away. on: April 30, 2014 06:41:16 AM
I am hoping to get into organizing a swap, but I just found out that I will be away for 5 days towards the end of craft time.  I will have internet access, but it will only be in the evenings. 
Is this okay, or should I wait?

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Quick and Easy Wonderland swap on: April 28, 2014 07:38:59 PM
In the A is for Alice swap board, many people seemed interested in a quick swap before that larger one that will be in August.
I am interested in organizing, and I wanted to see if there would be people interested in doing a quick swap.

I was thinking 1 week for sign ups and 4 weeks crafting time.
sign ups May 5 - 12 Send outs June 9th?

I'm open to changing sign up and send out times, just let me know what works.

As for size 1 medium item.
Any and all styles of Alice in wonderland!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Light Switch and Outlet Cover on: March 01, 2014 10:26:15 AM
I recently did a swap, and this was one of my creations!

The light switch cover is on the left and the outlet cover is on the right!

I loved how quick and cute these came out.  Now I definitely want to redo all of the covers in my home!
These are just paper printed images covered with a few layers of mod podge.  Next time I will make sure that I have the right color of sealant(I accidentally picked up white), as it makes the paper mod  podge easier to apply to thin paper.

Any comments welcome!

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mini wall art [George Strait] on: March 01, 2014 10:19:19 AM
I recently did a swap and this was one of my creations!

I printed the words and boots onto fabric and then bordered it with some fabric.
I learned how to get great mitered corners while making this.

Any and all comments welcome!

Thanks for looking,
