31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Halloween ATC Swap - SIGN UP CLOSED SEND BY 10/12/07 on: August 31, 2008 08:18:02 PM
Absolutely!
32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My Wedding ATC on: August 08, 2008 11:52:42 AM
It's been quite awhile since I've made any ATC's. One night I couldn't sleep and needed something to keep from going completely insane (don't you love those nights?) and got out all my papercrafting supplies. My husband and I recently got married on June 13, 2008 so I decided to make an ATC representing that.



The cross is a stamp that I used on just about everything (the invitations, the programs, the favours, the cake topper, and eventually one day it will be added to my tattoo collection!). The 3 stars were made with a star shaped hole punch with blue paper behind it, to represent the 3 blue stars that my husband and I both have tattooed on our wrists. I really like how it came out!

I was showing my husband all the (amazing!) pictures, and he was like "Aww... you want one, don't you?" and I shook my head yes. He said "when we get a house, we'll make you one too"  Cheesy

Your craft room is gorgeous!! I'm insanely jealous. And I love love love the cactus pincushions!!

This is the BEST sock monkey I've ever seen!! I love how the skulls are lined up on the ears. Awesome!  Grin

Ohhhh snap. I'm going to have to keep this one in mind, I haven't swapped in almost a year (I know, right??!!) and this might just be the one to get me back into the swing of it. I'll have to double check the calendar and make sure nothing big is coming up.

Thanks for all the comments! Smiley

I just used the cheap poly-fil to stuff it a little. Cotton balls pulled apart could probably acheive the same effect.
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sugar Skull Wallhanging on: July 11, 2008 05:07:59 PM
My friend just got a new house, and the countertops are a very bright red/orange/salmon-y colour, so instead of trying to match it she's just going to go with a theme of bright random colours in there. I suggested if she goes that route, she might as well do a "Day of the Dead" theme.

And so... I made her this (the flowers are mine, I just thought they looked neat next to it)



It's a mix of felt (the background is some awesome patterned felt I found at Hobby Lobby), embroidery, fabric, puffy paint, and random beads. The frame was a plain wooden frame from Michael's that I painted and removed the glass. The skull is slightly stuffed to give it a 3-d effect. I'm not the best at embroidery, but I'm quite pleased with how this turned out Cheesy
38  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / crochet calla lilies on: April 14, 2008 07:30:44 PM
I came here to post pictures of my crocheted bridesmaid bouquets, and I saw that someone else is knitting/felting theirs! Crafty minds think alike, eh? Wink

I came up with these for the bridesmaids:




They're just a simple circle done all in double crochet, folded over at the base. I used pearls for the center (pistil? stamen? haha, it's been too long since I've learned plant anatomy!) and wrapped the wire "stem" with floral tape, then wrapped the stems with blue ribbon. My bouquet is going to consist of white roses and white calla lilies (fake, not crocheted) and I wanted something similar but not too matchy-matchy.

I might play with them a bit more, but I quite like how they're turning out Smiley
39  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Reception Invite Wording? on: March 31, 2008 06:00:39 PM
We're having a very small wedding to begin with (just family and close friends) and our reception is going to be very informal. We're not having a DJ, no dance floor, no bouquet/garter throwing, no first dances, etc. There will still be food, drinks, cake. Since all of my fiance's family is coming in from out of town and we rarely get to see them, we wanted it to be more like we're "hanging out" with them.. if that makes sense.

I want to stress that it will be casual but I'm having trouble figuring out how to word it. Any ideas?

I bought the blank cards from Michael's, but with the cross on them, to use as my "thank you" cards.

I'll have to take a look at mygatsby.com

Thanks for the info Smiley
