1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Dragon Eggs for Khaleesi on: April 19, 2014 07:33:53 PM

So I made these dragon eggs for the Geek Easter Basket Swap. They're made from paper mache clay.Next time I make these eggs I'm going to paper mache them closed from the outside so they will have to be smashed like a pinata in order to remove the contents.

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Wedding Swap on: January 28, 2014 10:16:20 AM
I was just curious if anything like this has ever happened before? I just got engaged yesterday to my long time sweetheart; we've been together on and off for the last 13 years and I love the idea of a handmade wedding, the only trouble is I'm not great at enough things to do everything on my own, but I love the idea of other Craftster brides to be (or not) trading talents and making each other beautiful things for their special day. I'd also be up to personal swaps for it too.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Angry Piata on: November 03, 2013 05:13:54 PM
So this year I made my costume and I was super excited with the results. This is my costume:

I was the Angry Piata. I would hit random people with my whacking stick and then give them candy from my Piata purse.

To make the dress I got a long tank top from Walmart and cute a slit up the back. I attached ribbons to tie it onto myself. I tried up the ribbons and then slid the shirt over a board to stretch it out so I could hot glue the crepe paper streamers to it.

For the ears I bought plush cat ears and cut them up so I could move them up higher since equine ears are pretty much on the tops of their heads. I then reattached the ears by sewing them back on and then wrapped them all up in crepe paper and attached crepe paper tassels.

For the whacking stick I used a empty roll of gift wrap and stuffed it with paper. I then duct taped the handle and the seam so it wouldn't split when I hit people. I hot glued on many layers of crepe paper.

The Piata purse was the best part. I basically made the whole thing by hand. I traced the body design onto cardboard and then duct taped in cardboard in between to make the body stand. I modge podged on brown kraft paper in several layers for strength and duct taped the handles for stability. I then hot glued on the crepe paper.

I wish I had taken pictures of my process but I always forget to do so while crafting. I promise I will get better at that when I post new projects. I'm just super excited that the first craft I posted was for this contest!
