Points for the sheer beauty of your work and points for the unique way in which you took the theme and spun it around.  Unfortunately I logged in too late to vote!

A lot of the other entries were really fun and creative, but yours was the only one that spoke to me.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / plastic tape holders on: January 31, 2008 01:59:49 PM
I just started working at a library and we have hundreds of plastic tape holders.  What can I do with them?  If you come up with an awesome idea you want to try on your own I will send you as many as you want or will fit in a flat rate box.  Smiley  PM me.

If you have a lot of wire hangers, straighten them out and clip off the ends.  Put them in a bundle, and wrap one wire up from about 4 in from the bottom to about 8 in from the top.  Then splay the wires on the top and bottom.  Staple the bottom to a base.  Spray paint the whole thing black.  Now you have a spooky tree!  Add decoration.

I have a picture of it somewhere around here...

6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 28 on: November 13, 2007 11:46:34 AM
I claim CrossStichinMomma for cable knitting kit.  This is my 1st claim.  0 sent / 0 received.

I am a 24-year-old grad student.  Im studying Library Science and Ill be done in May.  Woo-hoo!  I live in Akron, Ohio in a small apartment with a roommate who is thankfully tolerant of my Mess o Crafts in the corner of our living room (and often strewn around the rest of the house as well).

I love earthy colors and scents.  My style is very eclectic and Bohemian.  Check my wists for more of my preferences.  I knit, stencil and woodburn mostly, but I also work on pretty much anything I take a fancy to.  I dont sew though so anything sewn is also welcome.  I am very open so I tried to give a lot of room for creativity in my list with my specifics in my wists.  If you make something that you think Id find cool, then go for it. 

The List.
- Anything from my wists: http://www.wists.com/yarn_tart
 - A messenger bag with pockets.
- A notebook with a decorated cover
- Decorations for the apartment
- Nature or travel themed artwork or photography for the walls
- Tabletop organizer for crafts / misc. junk
- A needle roll
- Kits: soap-making, polymer clay, macram, candle-making, resin casting
- Theme-in-a-box
- Decorated (stenciled, embroidered, whatever) t-shirts with nature or abstract designs
- Book of medieval woodcut patterns
- Tampon carry case
- Pins for my guitar bag
- Handspun / dyed yarn
- Undyed wool
- A shrug with wide sleeves
- Embroidered hand towels
- Unique jewelry earrings and necklaces mostly
- Anything made from recycled materials
- This ones out there, but if you live in Switzerland, Paprika Triangles from Migros.  Or anywhere in Europe: Fanta in fun flavors that we dont have in the States
- A hoodie with a cool design
- PJ pants or shorts
- Design books (the kind with black and white line drawings)
- Homemade candles
- Tablecloth in a vintage fabric
- Knitted socks
- Things to woodburn (boxes, plaques, wooden knitting needles, pens or paintbrushes)


PM me for specifics / sizes.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: ever take a day off work to knit? on: November 03, 2007 11:40:06 AM
I knit it my grad school classes and once other students saw me get away with it, they started to!  If a teacher asks me about it I just tell them it helps me focus more in class, which is true since I fidget so much I start to annoy myself otherwise.

At work I can't knit, but I work in a library so I hold knitting programs to get away with it. Smiley

It's really pretty!  I love the spooky painting on the lid as much as the shrine inside.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Ouija Board on: October 13, 2007 07:33:21 AM
I haven't actually tried it out yet - I've been trying to convince people to do it with me because I know better than to do it alone, but no one will. Sad

I used a heart-shaped wooden piece for the planchette and carved out a circle in the middle.  It's pretty rough, but it gives it character, I think.

I used a standard woodburner (and then went out and bought a nicer one because I enjoyed it so much).  You can get them at any craft store for around $10-$15 for a low end one.

You may also be having trouble because of the wood - some wood is harder to burn than others.  Check how hot the woodburner gets on the package and choose one that gets hotter.  I think they're usually around 950 F.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ouija Board on: October 12, 2007 08:54:22 AM
My boyfriend makes horror movies and the last one he did required a Ouija board. He was just going to use the Parker Bros board, but I said, Hey!  I craft - I'll just make one.  Besides, it was an opportunity to learn woodburning, which was something I was already interested in doing.

Here's the finished product with the planchette:


And another angle:


And a close up:


Thanks for looking!
