101  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shadowhunter Rune bracelet on: August 10, 2013 06:12:13 AM
Craftster means so many things to me!  It was hard to choose just one aspect to focus on.  One of the things Craftster is to me, is a place I can go where I'm allowed to be as creative as I want, as geeky as I want, without judgement.  Nothing but encouragement here!

Fans of the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare will, on some level, recognize and maybe even identify with, the desire to have the superhuman abilities provided by the runes the shadowhunters wear on their skin like tattoos.  Since tattoos aren't my thing, but runes are, I made this:

These are the runes for (from l to r): strength, fearlessness, balance, insight/foresight,and angelic power.

Another pic for scale:

This particular bracelet was made for a swap, but I'll be creating my own to wear to the movie "City of Bones" (based on the first book of The Mortal Instruments book series), which opens in a couple of weeks.   Grin

103  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spooky apron on: July 22, 2013 07:45:43 AM
I'm not sure if this belongs here, but....

My friend smileyyogini is working on creating a spooky kitchen in her new home!  So I fashioned this apron for her.  It's really wide, so it goes waaaaay around the sides!  That's a double patch pocket on the front and the skull is a fussy cut embellishment.

104  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Patchwork drawstring bag on: July 22, 2013 07:40:12 AM
I made this bag for a private swap.  It's very roomy and I like how it turned out!  I hear she is quite happy with it as well!  Cheesy

105  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Eclectic necklace on: July 22, 2013 07:37:19 AM
I made this necklace for the Make a Friend swap and I really liked the way it turned out, but I wish I had a better pic...  Sad

106  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas top hat ornaments on: July 22, 2013 07:29:45 AM
I made these for the Make a Friend swap!  I love top hats and I love Christmas, hence....

107  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Shadowhunter Swap signups 7/21 - 7/29, send out 8/15 on: July 21, 2013 06:54:26 AM

With the City of Bones movie coming out next month, I figured this was a fabulous opportunity for Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike to celebrate!

This swap can encompass both the Mortal Instruments series and the Infernal Devices series.

Trying to make this a fairly manageable swap in this time frame, so this swap will be for one medium and one small. Extras are fine if your partner's ok with it.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide. This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Remember, the important thing is that you and your partner agree.  If you want to make each other a purse for a shawl, go ahead.  Just make sure you're being fair, you communicate with your partner and you meet the guidelines outlined in the Swap Guide as well as additional guidelines setup by the Organizer of the particular swap. Think to yourself with each item you include: would this seem like a large item to me if I received it, or is it more on the medium or small side? Obviously, each project is different.  These are just suggestions. Send something that you are proud of and that you would be happy to receive.

108  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Embellished onesie on: July 10, 2013 07:04:25 AM
I made this for my cousin's cancer fundraiser auction.  Each embellishment has a snap on it so that they can be exchanged.
