161  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dia de los Muertos - my first resin project on: November 05, 2006 01:39:41 AM
I've had a resin kit for a while but I've been eyeing it nervously and hadn't quite worked up the nerve to give it a try. I was recently in the Day of the Dead swap, and decided to break out the resin and give it a whirl. I'm so glad I did! Resin is fun! I have many more ideas now!

Here's what I made:
Mirror: I cast the skull & stars in resin, and covered the whole mirror in resin.



plastic box of cards, decorated and covered in resin:

Here's a necklace& earrings I made for a personal swap with Stifflersmom. I like it a lot, I may make one for me!  Cheesy
165  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Jewelry of Love on: October 23, 2006 01:52:39 PM
I heard that rose quartz attracts love. I don't know if this is true, but it can't hurt, right? And who needs an excuse to make something pretty? So, with the hope that it might bring me some good luck in love, here's my rose quartz set! The fused glass pendant I purchased from tickletickle/firetickchick on Etsy, and the green beads on the bracelet are glass. The rest is all quartz.  Kiss  Kiss
Here's to love and jewelry!  Wink

166  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / winter cyclists-how do you bundle up? on: October 12, 2006 12:17:49 PM
I'm new to the world of 2-wheeled commuting and plan to do it as much of the year as I can. However, that bike helmet isn't keeping my poor head very warm, and it's only October! How do other winter cyclists manage the hat vs helmet dilema? I was thinking of a thin hat under the helmet, or a hood/scarf combo over the helmet. Yesterday I tried putting my coat hood over my helmet but it kept flying back. Today I wore earmuffs under my helmet but the top of my head was still cold. What's a thrifty commuter to do? (My "commute" is only 5 blocks! But still!)
Any suggestions?
167  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / making candles out of teacups? on: September 29, 2006 11:05:47 AM
I've seen really pretty candles made from china teacups, and I'd like to make some for my little group of girlfriends for Christmas. I found 6 different gorgeous delicate china cups at a garage sale that would be perfect. I'm thinking of using the melt & pour soy wax they sell at joann's & michael's, but I'm wondering...is the wax too hot? Will it crack the china? Has anyone tried this? I guess if they can hold boiling tea it'll be OK, but I'd hate to ruin them? I could use the cups to make gifts with pretty tea bags & such, but I love the candle idea. Has anyone had any experience making these? Thanks!
168  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Condom Jewelry on: September 13, 2006 08:42:52 AM
I just scanned this for work, and it made me giggle. Condom Bolo, anyone? This was quite revolutionary in the 80's I think!  Cheesy





Kinda hard to see, but they are jewelry with hidden condoms in little pouches, in a very 80's southwestern inspired style. I am praying that bolo ties don't make a comeback!
169  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / 70's glass light fixture parts on: August 28, 2006 09:26:41 AM
My friend removed some mirror walls, shag carpet and 70's light fixtures from his new house. I saw the pile of glass and thought to myself "Self, there's something cool to be done with that pile of glass". But I can't think of a thing! Sadly I spilled a bottle of water on my digicam and fried it, but you know the type: smoky colored beveled rectangles with a starburst in the center, they hang down. Here's the general idea:

Any ideas? Anyone?
170  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / smoky smell in vintage furniture? on: August 28, 2006 08:44:32 AM
I just bought a funny vintage vinyl lounge chair from the 70's. It's so comfy & hilarious (and *shiny*!!) but it was definitely someone's "smoking chair". Now that I'm almost never around smoke anymore, I really notice it. Does anyone have any good ideas for beating the smell?  I gave it a good wash with Mrs Meyer's and it helped a little, but I can still smell it. Has anyone come up with a crafty solution to this problem?
