124  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Glazed Ceramic Buttons in Creeping Blue on: December 03, 2012 12:13:12 PM
Hi there!  In an attempt to use up some of my spare clay, I decided to make a bunch of buttons.  I'm still in the process of glazing some of them, but so far I've gotten one color done.  These are glazed in creeping blue studio glaze. 

To make these I rolled out the clay, covered it in plastic wrap and then cut each out with a cookie cutter.  The plastic wrap helped keep the edges clean and smooth.  Afterwards I used various stamps and pressed in the designs.  Once they were bisque fired I brushed on an overglaze and they were fired once again.  I'm quite happy with how they turned out.  I have a set of lime green ones being fired, and then a dark dark blue set as well.  I think I will do the rest when I start up classes again. 

Thanks for looking!
125  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Peg People Ornaments on: December 03, 2012 12:01:52 PM
I've been playing with peg people again!  I absolutely love make peg people, and I know there are more to be had in my future!  ^_^  These peg people are actually ornaments.  I made some for the HP Holiday swap and a set for gozer for her birthday!  So, without further ado, onto the ornaments!

These are the HP ones that I made for chughes225, mariak, and indigo_roses.  We have Luna, Hermoine, Harry, Ron, and Luna again.  They were then strung with a gold ribbon to be hung on the tree.

And here are gozer's set of three Star Wars ornaments.  Here we have Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Luke Skywalker.

All have a couple coatings of a clear spray sealer.  Thanks for looking!
126  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / HO HO HO Penguins on: December 03, 2012 11:19:19 AM
Hi there!  I made these little fellows as a set for the STS.  Sadly, they were never claimed, but will be donning my own Christmas decoration collection.  The penguin itself is a gourd painted in acrylic paint.  They were fun to make!

Thanks for looking!

*When sending send/receive notifications to the swap organizer, there are four juicy pieces of information that must be included about each ATC.  What are they?  (Scroll down in the swap info under this questionnaire to the area "Once you have sent or received a card"; the answer is in red.):

*Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap!  Sign-ups are open all month--YAY!  PM me the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims. **Please make sure you are not late or flakey in any of your other swaps.** This is a super-uber-amazingly-stupendous swap, So Have Fun!  


Claims are made throughout the month.  You have two weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.

You can make as many (or as few, as little as 1) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a card that has not been received; when that card is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 7 or 10.)

Posting pictures of received ATCs is required for this swap.


1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...
This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer makes the final claim and closes out the claiming part of the swap.

2. How many claims can be made by each individual:

The number of claims each person is allowed depends on the following criteria:
*Friends of Craftster: 10 claims
*Those who aren't Friends of Craftster: 7 claims
*First time swappers (whether Friends of Craftster or not): 1 claim.  Once the initial claim has been sent, and its new owner has reported it received, the first time swapper is free to make more claims, either 7 or 10 dependent on being an FOC or not.

3. How to make a claim:

A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:
Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the cards received by the people you've sent them to.
3. Your location.
4. Your personal preferences.
5. Your list of themes


I claim GenericFabulosaSwapper for heffalumps/weasels ATC.  

3 claims, 2 sent, 1 received

I live in Massachusetts, USA.  I would prefer not to receive anything violent, political, or religious.  

My themes are:
1)   Pretty packages all in a row
2)   Santa, I've been naughty!
3)   O' Christmas Tree!
4)   Your favorite holiday tradition
5)   Santas from Around the World!

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address
2. You have 2 weeks to complete each card, and have it in the mail to its new owner.  

1. Please PM the organizer when you send or receive a card.  (It's also good to notify the person you received from or are sending to.)  November ATC Swap--Sent[/i] or November ATC Swap--Received (Be sure to include the month, since I generally run multiple months at a time)
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3)who sent it to (4)whom, in each message to the ATC swap organizer, when you're referring to sent or received ATCs.  (That's four juicy pieces of important information that make my life as a swap organizer OH so easy!) Easy as pie!

For example, you could use this format:
I sent some ATCs today!  

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> YowzaSwapper (fantasmic theme)

MeCraftsterMemberBloop --> WowwieSwapper (stupendous theme)
MeCraftsterMemberBloop -->WooHooYeeHawSwapper 07 (yet another fascinating theme)


This lets the organizer easily access the swap info, so it can be updated.  

It is OH so important to post pictures of the amazing cards you receive!  This is the best way in the world to let it be known how special it is that you've received a wonderful treasure of someone else's creativity!  

Please post pictures/scans of your received cards in the gallery (or make arrangements with your partner to do so).

Positive feedback will be given when all of the cards you sent have been received.   Good communication is always cool!  And be sure and post those pictures in the gallery!

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer, jillybeans or gozer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.
128  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Bookmarks Galore! on: November 16, 2012 02:55:59 PM
I've been going bookmark crazy in the Shop the Swap!  I've been offering up a set of 5 bookmarks for 1pt.  So far I've had 4 claims of them, which is a lot of bookmarks!  For the most part they are watercolors w/ ink.  And in some occasions book pages or map pages.

I seem to me missing a set, but I will just add those to this post a little later when I get 'em uploaded.  Uploaded!  Yay!  Thanks for looking!

130  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / My first pottery class projects on: November 01, 2012 08:59:21 AM
I just completed my first set of pottery classes on wheel throwing, and its bittersweet, because it was an awesome experience and I'm sad that its over for now.  I'm planning on taking more classes in January.  Here are my first three completed projects in the class.  I still have a couple pieces that are being fired and then need to be glazed.  I will post those up once they are done. 

Here they are!  A decanter, a little pot, and a mug.

Thanks for looking!
