Today I received an incredibly awesome mug cozy from jtlhmmwabodf!! Have a look and be awed! She even drew a squid on the outside of the package...Mr. Squid is holding his coffee mug, milk, sugar cubes, and a spoon. Lately I've felt compelled to take gimp foot selfies. Please forgive me Cool Thanks so much, jtlhmmwabodf. This truly made my day!

I received from Slick MariaVic several days ago. Sorry I'm slow to post pictures - I'm slow at everything right now.

The pendant is BEAUTIFUL. I showed it and the inspiration pin to a friend, and we both agree we like Maria's earthy colors better. Even her monkey packaging was fun. I think I'll wear it to my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow. Maybe it will bring me luck as I learn how many screws my ankle is going to get Cool

Thank you Slick MariaVic! You put a smile on my face during a trying time.

I received from rscowtown today. She made me a lovely bathmat that goes with the soft blues and greens in my small room. The front is made up of 4 inch squares, and the back is a light towel. It is perfect! Thank you!

Those dish mat crafters are quick! My partner has finished one of mine and promises two more. (I hope this photo works out. It's the first I've sent using Tapatalk.)

6  Altered Thrift Store Paintings in Completed Projects by onthinice on: December 23, 2013 04:58:23 PM
I was invited to three white elephant gift exchanges this week, and I was looking for those perfect unusual gifts to bring.  I decided on altering some fantastically awful thrift store treasures.



This last one is a dorky motivational poster that says "RISK:  It's not the circumstance, it's your reaction to the circumstance."

I've loved making these and foresee an explosion of altered thrift store paintings in my house!

7  Gaze of a Siren Brooch in Beads: Completed Projects by onthinice on: February 07, 2013 10:39:17 AM
Here is a brooch I made for the local bead society's competition.  We were each given a metal filigree circle that was required to be in the completed design.  I used it as a base to secure the rest of my piece, and it can be seen on the back of the pin.  The only other rules were that we use at least 10 beads, and the design must be our own. 

Siren mythology appealed to me for this design.  They lured sailors with their beautiful song, yet they were dangerous creatures.  I wanted to incorporate the weird into a beautiful beaded piece.  The blue fringe and rings represent sea elements of coral and suckers on the grasping tentacles of squids and octopuses.  The eye symbolizes the enticing gaze of the Siren.

This is the first time I have colored metal components.  It pleased me to be able to match my metal materials to my beads and to free myself from limited commercial color treatments.  I also found that adding an element in an unconventional way can be tricky, however that is part of the journey in creating your own design.  Attaching the ringed corona required more labor than I anticipated and required me to alter my preconceived image of the finished piece.  I am fond of the extra color the blue coral fringe adds, and I am pleasantly surprised by the steampunk feel the pin conveys.

I received my doll from Melissaurus!  She made me a Siren doll that is PERFECT!  I play roller derby, and my team's name is the Deadly Sirens, and our team color is teal.  She incorporated all of that into a cute but creepy doll for me Cheesy  Please note her cuteness is not marred by the tiny trickle of blood dripping from the side of her mouth, ha ha ha!  Her hair is covering up her little X stitches for nipples, tee hee!  The Siren is holding a sea bear, and there are hand made envelopes folded from a crafty book on how to plant trees, landscape, use various tools, etc.  This package is so full of awesome.  Thank you, Melissaurus!

Not a complete costume, but here are my first nipple pasties!  I needed something to bring for a white elephant gift exchange, and as a joke I suggested I'd make some.  I hope the right person winds up with them on Saturday  Roll Eyes

10  Newborn Asian-style Top and Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by onthinice on: January 22, 2012 12:55:28 PM
A friend of mine had her baby shower this weekend.  Never one to give what is normally expected, I made two Asian-inspired outfits.  The top is the Simple Kimono Wrap.  To get the free pattern, you need to email the designer.  The pants are Basic Newborn Pant by made-by-rae.  Hopefully my fabric choices won't make the parents' eyes bleed, ha ha!
