         Your post is phenomenal! I have always wanted to weld a giant Jack Skellington, but I don't have space for the equipment anymore. It is truly an inspiration to all of us 'Pumpkin-Heads'! Thank you so much for posting all of your work! How fortunate you are to have such a talented and supportive family. I wish you lived in my town - we could collaborate on projects. I make and look for halloween and Dia de los Muertos decorations all year. I hope you don't mind if I use an idea or to of yours. I don't know how you'll ever be able to take it all down. I would cry! Absolutely amazing work - congrats to you and your family!!!! THIS ROCKS! Keep posting chica!
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / re-vamped thrift store letter "E" on: January 23, 2012 01:05:16 PM
I was given a simple, black, plastic plastic letter "E" from my cousin a while ago, and stashed it away. I recently found it again and decided it needed a make over. I spray-painted it in a tiffany blue. Then I cut out little sparrows from some left over, thick card stock and spray-painted them metallic gold. After it all dried, I used a gluegun to attach the birdies, and voila! A perfect gift for my cousin's daughter "Eden". Now I collect letters everywhere. I'd love input and ideas on future letter projects from you all! Thx!

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: How to make a French Memo Board (tutorial) on: January 23, 2012 12:32:20 PM
Thank you so much for posting this tutorial! My mother had given me a french memo board, but I hated the fabric and ribbon color. I followed your instructions - first removing the original ribbon and covered the existing board with velvet burnt-orange fabric that matched my curtains. I used black velvet ribbon and black buttons, and it turned out great. Thanks again! I couldn't have done it without your tute! Just hit - "this rocks"!

Here's the finished project.

16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Pressed Seaweed Wall Art on: March 10, 2010 08:27:32 PM
So for my birthday, I was treated to a lovely little trip to the pacific shore. The ocean is my favorite place in the world, so I decided to make a little memento of my time spent around San Diego. Here is what I came up with:

one small piece of giant kelp

four pieces from different type of seaweed

I have to give points to thelastkodama for sharing her lovely little seaweed cards (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=337662.0).

Thanks everyone! I actually just used regular old butcher paper and attached the cut pieces to the wall with masking tape. I have moved the whole thing over my bed (as a headboard of sorts) - not a fun job. I designed it myself - first drawing it on a scrap piece of paper. When I was pleased with my results, I traced it on a good piece and started cutting. The job would have been far easier had I had a projector... sigh...
Thanks for the feedback everyone - I just adore you guys!

These are lovely! I just got back from San Diego and am going to try something similar. Thanks for sharing your post! If I post anything, I'll be sure to link to you.
I finished mine! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340898.0
Thanks for the help with the kelp (sorry - lame).

I am glad the package arrived in one piece. Ollie's initial reaction to the box you sent was much like stealth's - he went crazy will the packaging and tissue paper! It was fun swapping with you!

Awww... those two look so sweet in their new jackets. I loved hey Vern's embroidered goodies (I wish I had a Vespa!). Everyone has done such a nice job on these swaps. I am so glad that Ollie and I had a chance to join in the fun!
