1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tiny TARDIS Box... It's a police BOX! on: May 19, 2013 08:28:19 PM


Made a TARDIS box for a friend's birthday! He's a bit color blind so I used metallic paint for the door panels so they would be a bit easier to see.



The inside is pretty darn simple (for the sheer fact that I ran out of time.)



I was so scared when I dropped one of the screws on the carpet, I was smart enough to use a ruler in a sweeping motion to find it. Such an easy way to find such a tiny screw!
2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Luna, the needle felted pixie on: March 28, 2013 08:55:02 PM


So I made this little lady for the Little Visitor swap, and I'm feeling a little inferior since everyone else has a store bought stuffy or such they are sending.

... also she's tiny...

Should I make a new one? Or go find a store bought pixie.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I love my Scissors! on: September 26, 2011 03:54:09 PM
I saw something like this floating around the internet (I thought it was craftgawker, but haven't been able to find the link) and thought that I could whip something up pretty quick!



What do you think? I can't stop wearing it! I even made a single scissor pendant for my sister, and she's almost as enamored as I am!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Machines? Anyone... Anyone? on: September 12, 2011 12:24:23 PM
I feel like I'm all alone out here in knitting machine land.

Does anyone else have one?

I have an old japanese one, and am trying to get up the impetus to make a cast on comb (geeez... do they really think that that the "ravel cord" would EVER work?)

Anyone else want to share stories, hardships, tips and tricks about machine knitting?

Also, does anyone else lust after the old industrial tube style knitting machines?

Details of swap:
Who doesn't love cupcakes? Sweet and delicious, not at all nutritious (unless you have a sneaky friend who hides whole wheat or soy in EVERYTHING). I've been dreaming of cupcakes, and eating more than my fair share, so let's have some fun with it!

Let us celebrate the cupcake, make effigies in it's honor and craft our little hearts out!

This will not be a swap of actual edible cupcakes (they don't travel all that well!), but of great crafts with a cupcake theme! (if you really want to send cupcakes, talk with your partner!)

We'll be crafting a total of 5 POINTS. Please limit small 1 point items to only three of your total points. So to make it more simple, at least one Medium or Big item is required! (If you'd like to do more, let me know, and I'll try to pair off the overachieving members of the swap!)


1 BIG= 3 POINTS
1 MEDIUM= 2 POINTS
1 SMALL= 1POINT

If you need more information about how points work, there's a great little information and tips for swappers, in the swap forums!

First time swapper? Come on in! Also, if you're going to reach your 30 days before the signup period ends, but want to secure a spot, let me know! I'll make sure it's all squared away!

MAKE SURE YOU ARE ABLE TO FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT RULES:
* PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive. You must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number).  Include the DC in your package sent PM to me and your partner.
* When you receive, post photographs in the gallery

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shadow Box full of Vintage Thread from a disused tape holder on: March 31, 2011 05:50:54 PM
Remember Tapes? Remember when you had so many of them you needed an organizer for them, well I don't! I honestly probably only owned three tapes in their heyday before CDs took over the as the preferred media format.

That didn't dissuade me from picking up a tape holder when I saw one at a super low price! I looked at it and instantly thought of an organizer, little did I know, that a little breaking, and some rainbow-tizing would leave my vintage thread collection looking more like a work of art, then a drawer-full of tangled messes!



I love collecting vintage thread, and have already replaced three of the newer spools with wooden spooled thread. Let me know what you think! This will hopefully get a place of honor on one of my walls soon, but I'm thinking of adding a little bit of a raised edge on the lower back, so that the thread won't want to roll out!
