I received today from April Again!  When I picked up the box it was HEAVY!   Cheesy  What did I find?  I had asked for buttons and got:



That is a HUGE ziploc bag FULL, plus a jar.  If I had to guestimate, there are 1,000,987 buttons inside.   Wink



and



Everything from dice to beads to jewelry stuff.  I recently opened a handmade store where we also do different arts and crafts classes, so all my loot will be put to use TOMORROW!!!   Smiley  Than you April Again, you rock!!!    Grin

5  For those about to rock... in Needlework: Completed Projects by crafty gurll on: July 19, 2011 06:00:18 PM
we salute you!   Wink  If you have never seen the Minipop Book by Craig Robinson, you really should.  He pixelates famous people really small, perfect for cross stitch.  Years ago I saw someone on flicker do a series of these, and thought they were too cool.  I finally found an easy way to chart them:  with an ipod.  You can download the app for $2, then save the shot to your camera roll.  Bring up the picture, make it bigger and then stitch away!  I won't say who they are, you can probably figure them out if you like 80's music!   Cheesy








best band EVER. btw...  Wink





Thanks for looking!  More to come!

8  Hand Built Bird & Shroom Plate in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by crafty gurll on: October 31, 2010 05:37:16 PM
Here's my latest hand built plate, fresh out of the kiln:



It's made from light brown speckled stoneware clay, glazed first in celadon with a wash of blue on top.  I wiped off most of the blue and liked the result of just having it accent the stampings.  The mushroom stamp I received in a craftster swap from craftystoner, and I think it accents the rim perfectly.  The bird is a Martha Stewart stamp.  Thanks for looking, C & C appreciated.   Cheesy

So glad you liked rantyhippie!  Those tiny wooden pegs are for the picture frames to make them stand up on a table.  I took some close-ups of the bracelet:



Made from milagros.  You can look up the meanings, each one is different.  Also the picture frames:



which I am so happy made it safely!  Doesn't look like the flowers got smashed.   Cheesy  The flowers are recycled from the centerpieces I made for my sister's Mexican-Themed bridal shower this past summer.  I made the porcelain tiles and glazed them with my favorite dark plum glaze.

Can't wait to see more goodness!
