2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft Trash & Treasure Swap on: September 18, 2009 12:52:17 PM
Here is a suggestion, i know all crafters have left over scraps, sometimes we don't have the heart to throw away these scraps and ultimately end up letting them pile up.
I just attempted to organize my jewelery making stuff, and i have so many mixed up beads and jewelery nicknacks that i don't want to throw away and don't want to sort through.

So i would love to be part of a swap that swaps my junk, for someone elses junk, maybe I'll find a treasure item.
So nobody loses out, we'll attempt to have fill a SNACK-LARGE ZIPLOCK BAG full of semi-neatly packed nicknack/usable junk items.
Everyone participating can list the 3 items they would like most, to better match up with a swap partner.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sweet Seashell Jewelery Set (Gift) & Tin Foil Love on: April 28, 2008 01:18:57 AM
So this is going to be a belated birthday gift for a friend of mine. My fingers are crippled from doing the first descent set of jewelery stuff.
I also had to improvise on the gift box, i searched around my house and came across tin foil, eh why they hell not. Grabbed some clear packing tape, and away i went. Why do i have so much seashells, i mean a giant box full of seashells. lol

The black crap is just my head shine in the jewelery.

(close up shot)


I wondered what else i could do with this tin foil, *hmm*, seashells, tin foil, seashells, tin foil
I was going to put it on top of the gift box, but got too lazy.



7  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cat Scratch Post / Pet Step Helper / Slide (tutorial inside) on: April 14, 2008 08:20:59 PM
Ok this thing can have many titles, in my case it is a cat scratching post for my black cat who has been ripping my furniture apart, despite the fact that i have bought two cat trees. It takes simple and cheap stuff to satisfy my cats :/ Oh snap. The good thing about this, is you can have it placed flat as shown in the pic, or stand it upwards.




This can also be a tiny little slide for any small pets you have, or if you have a lazy or a disabled pet who has difficult reaching their litter box, or the couch, then this is a great piece for them to use to walk on.

Just as a side note, the scratching post i have is just a piece of flat board wood that is wrapped with carpet material, very easy and cheap. Depending on what your cat likes, it can be sisal rope material, or even some cardboard material. If you don't have a piece of wood, double up on some cardboard, until it's sturdy enough, then wrap it up with some fleece material or carpeting.

Anyways, what you will need.
Cardboard box, rectangular shaped preferred (I used priority mail box from USPS, the boxes are free).
Duct-tape
Scissors, or Box Cutter




Step 1: Trace your piece of board on top of the box. From corner to corner, create a intersect lines.
Step 2: Measure the thickness of your board, or estimate how deep you would like the fitting placement to be. Mine was about half an inch thick. So measure and draw that amount inward, from the originally traced line of the board.
Using a box cutter, cut along the intersecting lines.
Step 3: Fold each of the pieces upwards on the inward drawn line.
Step 4: Fold Each of the pieces inwards, from the original traced line.


Step 5: On the sides of the box, draw a line on an angle, to create the elevation of the post.
Step 6: Cut out the top part of the drawn angle (across the line, and across the fold). Once you have done both sides, it should look like the picture, with the top part as the flap.
Step 7: Re-trace the board onto another piece of cardboard, cut out that piece.
Step 8: Place the cut out piece in the dip that you created, resulting in Step 4.

Now use that tape as much as you can to attach that cut out piece to the four flaps.
Stuff the inside of the box/post, i used brown wrapping paper and rolled them up tightly and stuffed the inside so when my cat uses it, it's hard, won't collapse and is secure.
Now tape the angled sides.


The front part, you should fold up and tape, like in the picture.

Decorate it any way you would like, i used wrapping paper and clear tape because i'm ghetto lol.

Now you can place the scratch board post in, or whatever you please.

Hope this made sense.



8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Cat ball toy with mouse pop outs, How to go about it???? on: March 02, 2008 01:59:15 PM
Ok so i was looking through cool cat toys online, and i came across this cat toy called

"Roll and Pop cat toy
Tiny mice pop in and out of this toy's peek holes"
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pcatid=9198

http://a1272.g.akamai.net/7/1272/1121/20060419155610/www.drsfostersmith.com/images/Categoryimages/normal/p_13231_FS20172_1.jpg


Would anyone have some ideas of how to go about making one ??
Sure i could buy it, but that would not be fun.

What kind of equipment can be used to create a steady ball shape with gaps in it?
How would you attach the pop out pieces to the ball, so that they could pop out but not to the point where the cat can rip it out?

Any suggestions would be hella awesomes!!

<3 crazy cat lady

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A bunch of my new creations, (hvy imgs) on: October 12, 2006 12:31:29 PM
First up is still a working progress in some area's but it's inspired by Japanese goth streetwear
it used to be a boys long sleeve button up shirt, a few reconstructions, adda  few iron transfer bats, use corset styles instead of buttons and tada

i guess ;/

ps. that's not a tie, it's my black manequin, i'd wear it with a white tank top




ok this skirt is made entirely out of my husbands reject t-shirts
i found the idea on ebay
and made it myself
it took alot of pinning and alot of sewing Sad
but it was worth it, i luvr it
took about 3 large t-shirts
to make




and here is a bunch of t-shirts i made with iron on transfers, they are reconstructed kind of right? since they were t-shirts but now are awesome-o shirts
(imgs found online)
