1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tentacle Cozy Goodness on: January 31, 2014 10:34:25 AM
In the Ongoing Pinterest Swap I made Annchen a pretty generic phone cozy, and then I decided that instead of sending this very plain cozy, I would put an octopus tentacle on it! I completely winged the tentacle pattern with no reference to anything (which would be a first!), so I'm pretty proud of it. (I guess this might technically be ami? I don't really know. hah)


2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / early christmas swap? on: July 26, 2013 08:45:36 PM
Would anyone be interested in doing a swap to either help others decorate for Xmas or assist in making gifts? I usually start makng gifts for Christmas in July, so this doesn't seem too early for me. Haha
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Labeling on: July 17, 2012 11:09:08 PM
Does anyone else have the obsessive urge to take your freshly bought yarns and immediately tear the label off anf turn it into a ball? Well, I do. And since I do have this annoying habit, I can't remember or keep track of which balls are what brand/material/color. I usually keep my labels, but unfortunately, I'm not super organized and tend to lose them easily. Anyway, to the question: Does anyone have an efficient way of labeling yarn BALLS?
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dog Bone? on: July 04, 2012 12:59:01 PM
My daughter has a stuffed dog that she absolutely adores and always tries to feed. I was wanting to crochet her a small, stuffed dog bone, but all of the ones I found look really difficult, and too large. I'm a beginner at crocheting, does anyone have any simple patterns that are really small? More like a dog treat size? Thanks!

Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for a wrap/shawl thing similar this (preferably more simple)?

I'm semi new to crocheting, so I havent figured out how to make my own patterns. I'm sure this is fairly simple. Any help is appreciated. =)

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / "All Things of Nature" Shadow Box on: May 25, 2012 11:31:35 AM
My first go at making a assembled shadow box. The box was originally a keyholder, but I don't have enough used keys to put it to proper use, so I made a pretty!




The quote tag says: "In all things of nature there is something of the Marvelous" -Aristotle

Sorry for the blurriness, I took the photos with my phone.
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Assemblage Trinket Box Question on: May 25, 2012 06:43:29 AM
I have a bunch of cardboard laying around, and I was thinking about making it into a trinket box, like here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=382723.0

I'm terrible with measuring and planning sizes, though. Is there any sort of tutorial for this, where the measurements and instructions are already laid out?
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Child's table: Advice, Ideas? on: May 24, 2012 10:48:09 PM
I have this really ugly wooden play table with two chairs that a family member gave to me for my daughter. I would really like to repaint it and turn it into a really cool table for her, but she's only 1 year old and isnt very opinionated yet Tongue.

The surface looks like it might be a glossy stain of some sort, I'm not really sure what I can do over it. I was thinking maybe using some of the chalkboard spray paint I have, but I don't know how well it would stick, and I'm just not committed enough to sand the whole thing down. Any ideas or input? She doesn't have a bedroom theme or anything, so I can't really work around that.

Also, the chairs are really top heavy, any advice to make it more stable other than cutting off part of the chair?
I have two pictures, one by itself and one with her sitting in the chair for size comparison.
