11  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 18 - GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by dewshinesdopp on: January 06, 2014 10:16:29 AM
Brrrrr. I. Can't. Even.

I am such a wimp- haha!

But actually, it's funny... We were in FL a few years ago for my Bro-in-Law's graduation, and it was freezing!  People were walking around Disney in full winter coats and scarves and there was steam rising in giant hanging clouds from the outdoor hotel pools!  I think that was that week where I think they said it snowed in 49 states or something....
I was at Disney World in the evening late last month and it was a feels-like of like 44F and I was wearing a sweater, jeans and a coat. It was cold! LOL I've been in Florida nearly my entire life so I get cold easy too. Heh.

It's supposed to even get down to record lows overnight Monday. Forecast is currently calling for....wait for it... 29F! Shocked Holy crap on a cracker. We're going to have power outages if it gets that far below freezing. People around here just don't know what to do about the cold because we're just not equipped for it.

Proof Florida is out of it's mind. May I present the forecast for this week:


Yep.  It's crazy.  It was shorts and t-shirt weather yesterday.  Today is long sleeves, jeans and socks.   Tomorrow will be "work?  Oh Heck NO!

Okay, this is probably the lamest thing ever that I am claiming as a "craft".  But... it was a WIP, and it's done, and theoretically it counts under the January theme of organization...so.. .without further adieu:

I found this absolutely hideous wooden tray with ducks on it at a thrift store for about 50 cents.  So, I took this green glitter paint that I had (Michaels clearance for about $1 for a pint of it), and slathered it all over it.   It hid the ducks, and sparkled- which is always a good thing in my book.

I was looking for places to display the jewelry that I make (under the foolish delusion that I will eventually go to a craft show and sell them).  So I screwed a bunch of hooks into the side of it, but got bored and quit halfway through.

Today, I finished screwing in the hooks.  I call it a "done".  Tongue

Woot!  One off the WIP list: 

The battle droid for my son's room.  Too big for any of the hoops that I had, so I framed it.

I feel almost guilty about posting this as a completed project.  But, I was working on my craft room, and found it.  Half-finished, and it emptied out a small crafting tote by finishing it up. 

I call it a win, because it's "done" and because it gave me an empty plastic storage thingy to help organize.

It's from my experimental period of "attempting to learn to crochet".  I successfully learned to make long skinny crochet strings.  I have yet to successfully pass that stage.  So I took a bunch of them, and braided a couple together.  then I took the whole bunch of them, and knotted them together, and made this "infinity scarf".

received from Witchhippie yesterday.  I didn't get a chance to open it until today, and...I haven't figured out how she got it all ~in~ there!

Here goes!  The envie she sent- back side, for obvious reasons Smiley


These gorgeous ATCs.  A goddess image and a tree of life- so pretty!

Beads and jelly bracelets, which were already swiped by my kids

Fabric! 

more beads, and my favorite color ever- GLITTER!

stickers, ribbons and a nifty match book style note pad

I also received from Eiseldora. 

She sent a pretty cool package, with oodles of useful things.  She sent:




and the crafted items: Some super cool Star Wars pins based on my pinterest.   My son already ran away with over half of them, and my daughter swiped two for herself.  I was able to keep the Steampunk C3PO, though!

17  Re: Stuff an Envelope Swap (INTERNATIONAL) rd 2 - s/u to 30th June in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by dewshinesdopp on: June 27, 2012 05:42:25 PM
I think I'm going to make the envelopes. I just hope I understand which size they are. I think they are the size of a large birthday card, correct? Tongue

Any who-I'll figure it out!!!

Here are the "standard" USPS envelope sizes.  It's from https://www.usps.com/ship/first-class.htm?

A5 is pretty close in size to our 6x9 bubble mailers, if I understand correctly.

Okay, so this hoopla is from a personal swap that I had with Retro Gypsy's 12 year old step child, but it deserves to be seen:) That's right- TWELVE years old... Ah. Maze. Ing!

She makes me feel ashamed of some of the things I have sent- how about you?

19  My 6 year old's lightsaber- my crafty little heart explodes with the cuteness... in Needlework: Completed Projects by dewshinesdopp on: June 11, 2012 08:42:07 AM
Mods:  Please feel free to move if necessary- just a bragging mom Smiley

My son (age 6) has been admiring my hooplas that I receive in swaps, and has often lamented that I don't let him help.  Today, he made his very own light-saber.  He is super proud of it, and asked that it be put on his own "hoopla wall".

In process shot:


And the completed hoopla:

20  My turquoise obsession.... in Beads: Completed Projects by dewshinesdopp on: June 10, 2012 08:07:50 AM
Lately I have been just crazy about the color turquoise.  I seem to gravitate toward it everywhere I go.  Well, I decided to make something so that hopefully it will get out of my head for awhile.

I have about 6 unfinished projects, but these are the three I completed so far- all are on a butterfly theme, because I had a belt that I re-purposed into several focal pieces.

It was supposed to be a necklace, bracelet and earrings, but in my desire to make it nifty, I went about 2 inches overboard and wound up with an anklet instead Tongue


Thanks for looking! C&C are much appreciated.  Smiley
