3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make me a purse and matching wallet swap? on: June 02, 2014 05:09:48 AM
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a purse and matching wallet swap where we could make a purse ans a wallet to go with it? Sometimes I like matchy matchy. Grin
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Stary night bracelet on: June 02, 2014 04:53:17 AM
I made this bracelet with delicas and square stitch. It took me about 15 hours total to complete. Wasn't happy with the clasp so I still am working on that.

5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone identify this wheel? on: June 24, 2013 09:22:10 PM
I found this wheel at good will... everyone was walking right past it poor little thing.. I know it is an ashford wheel but not much else about it.. the petal connector is broken but I looked at ashfords site before I bought it and the piece is only 3.50 .. everything else about it looks amazing.. almost like it was barely used. I am looking for any info you could give me on it or point me to a site.. I was racking my brain trying to figure out where to get the info and I thought you lovely ladies ( and manly men if there are any) can help me. Here is hoping.

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / My first batch of soap on: September 24, 2009 08:57:27 AM
So I recently got a soap kit in a swap..I was scared of the lye so I have been putting off making it..I ended up doing hot process because there is no way I am patient enough to wait 4 weeks... no no no... I did end up licking it.. and it wasn't done.. that was intresting...anyway here are a couple pictures.
This first one is from the mold in my kit

The second one you can see some look wonky cause I still had soap left in the pot. So I used a metal throwaway baking pan, turns our I didn't need to throw it away but it left ridges and stuff on the soap. the ball is because I cut the top and stuff off the mold soap because the plastic bag I used bled it's ink on my soap!

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Dark Mark Cuff (Image Heavey ) on: May 21, 2007 05:09:07 PM
I am going to prophecy in Toronto in August. I wanted to make something to commemorate the event. I really really really like seed beads. So I found this knitting pattern for the dark mark bag and lucky for me converting a knitting pattern to beads is as easy for me as uhhh reading a pattern..lol...So away I went..

First credit where it is due... the pattern is not mine it is from here...http://www.freewebs.com/theloveplant/knitting/darkmarkbag.html...

I made it all doing the square stitch. I could have done it much faster doing it on the loom and all but I would take it with me everywhere and people tend to look at you funny when you pull out a loom in a dr.s office! I have no idea how many beads it took over 2000 I know. After I got the beaded part done I ran in to that amazing lime green leather and it matched so perfect I had to use it. So I sewed the beads on to it added the snaps and here it is!!!!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / chrismas crafts for the devolopmentaly disabled on: October 07, 2006 04:41:38 PM
I work for a company that takes care of devolpmentaly disabled people. We need a craft for our company christmas party. I have been informed that glue is a bad thing and they need to be cheap. We need to make like 100 of them with the consumers. SO if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated
