1  TOO MUCH FREAKIN JEWELRY!!! in Discussion and Questions by fortunecookie on: July 01, 2004 04:50:16 PM
I have too much jewelry, in fact, so much that it doesn't even fit inside my beautiful vintage leather jewelry box anymore. (you can see part of it in the right bottom corner) Any crafty ideas for holding this much jewelry?

3  Binary stuff for all you computer geeks to make! :D in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by fortunecookie on: May 27, 2004 04:18:31 PM
Ok, so I was randoming around, trying to figure out something to do. (I was bored) And then it hit me! Binary things! Any words, sayings, numbers, etc. can be translated from ACSII into binaryto make fun crafts! In fact, anything that uses two different kinds of something is fair game! For example, I wanted to make a scarf using intarsia with two different colours, and weave a message in there but 1) I suck at the knitting and 2) I have no time.

I think bracelets are a fun alternative! Just look on google for 'ASCII to binary" to get yourself a translator, if you can't translate it yourself. Cheesy Bear in mind that each character will be eight numbers long, so you might want to choose a short word. I chose 'geek' and did the 0's in black, and the 1's in green, for that matrixy look. It doesn't show up very well in this picture, but you can vaguely see it under my Internet Corruption Unit bracelet and my little star Smiley.

Btw I figured out how to resize pics. Yay me! I jsut hope they work....*prays*

Oh, and if anyone wants to give the knitting binary a go, please post so i can see how it looks! Cheesy

6  portable zen garden with a twist! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fortunecookie on: February 14, 2004 07:28:02 AM
Some of you might remember me as flying_gum_wrapper, but due to circumstances, I had to change my name *cries*. But here I finally have the instructions and pictures of my portable zen garden! Yay!

1. Start with an old pencil case with a graphic you like (or you can always start with a gross one and paint it). I love Hello Kitty, so I used this old tin hello Kitty pencil case, that had a lot of scratches on the inside, and the inside tray.

2. Then, to cover up the scratches, I broke out my ginormous collection of HK stickers, and covered up all the little nicks with stickers. You don't have to cover up the nicks in the tray, because that's where the sand goes.

3. Then you put the sand in! I used this nifty pink sand that I had from one of those old sand art kits, because it matches real cute. ^^

4. Next you take a sand rake (if you dont have one, you can use a fork, etc) and rake the sand into purty patterns.

5. Now most sand gardens have rocks, or little porcelain bridges or whatnot. I used these cute pink dice that I got free with a magazine, they have phrases like 'hot' and 'love' and 'cute' on them, I thought they went nicely.

6. Last of all, if you have one with a removable tray like I do, you can store money and stuff in the bottom ^^.

Hope you likes it!!

7  Decoupage Mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by fortunecookie on: February 13, 2004 07:52:45 AM
Okie dokie, so my previous room had been decorated in blue and gold (you know, the traditional moon and stars type thing), and I had a gold sun mirror leftover. I got the thing at an auction for 5 bucks cause the mirror was cracked, but I just replaced that.

Anyhow moving into my new house, my NEW theme was red, black, silver, pink, so obviously a gold mirror wasn't going to 'go'.

So I painted it with black paint, and just went crazy with red and pink pictures i found from magazines. I also added some of those flatback jewels, and a string of red sequins. Smiley

I hope that picture works :/

Let me know what you think! Smiley
