1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / peanut butter jar piggy bank (image heavy) on: July 14, 2007 07:01:12 PM
I made this a few years ago from an old peanut butter jar and some air drying children's clay. I cut a slit in the side of the jar for the coins to go in and then covered the whole thing with clay. The snout and legs are made around wine corks and the tail is pink wire. Finally I painted the whole thing pink with black detailing and I finished it off by painting the inside black.





As you can see, the piggy's face easily screws off to open but that isn't painfully obvious when it's closed. What do you think?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / L'homme de jour keychain on: July 14, 2007 06:49:47 PM
Last year for Valentine's day, I made each of my friends a little man shaped stuffed keychain made out of canvas and painted to look like their ideal bloke. On the back I wrote "Homme de Jour". Voila!
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / coloured aluminium foil on: February 15, 2007 04:52:19 PM
I have lshoe boxes full of just old coloured foils from chocolates and other sweets in a huge range of lustres, colours, and patterns. I've made greeting cards before and I'm think maybe a sculpture? Any other ideas?
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / idea for musician on: June 10, 2006 06:53:42 AM
I have this one friend that's really into music (she plays sax and clarinet) so I made her a reed cosy. It's kinda like a ipod cover but smaller . I made it look like an evil bunny rabbit. I would show a pic but my camera's not working.
just an idea.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / valentine's gift idea for single girls on: February 11, 2006 10:20:58 AM
keep in mind that they should probably have a good sense of humour...
anyways, what I'm making my friends this year are little man shaped stuffed keychains made out of canvas. what I'm going to do is paint each one up like a really hot guy ans them paint a rose in each one's and. on the back i'm wrting "Meet my homme de jour. His name is ______" so they can fill intheir own name for him. then, I'll just tape on a chocolate and tada! what do you think? Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

Argh. I've been somehow trapped into running a camp for a girl scout unit (they're like 12-14).  Anyways, I have to do a  craft with them but I'm not sure what to make cuz they aren't exactly very skilled. Any ideas?
