16271  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Inchie my theme swap on: May 03, 2010 09:28:57 AM
I have definite ideas for inchie displays, and one of them is a tree...but my theme was going to be birds in general!

I also have a sea theme with a display to be underwater... Cheesy

I think a set made of one theme would be so awesome...it sure does make one creative!  I did an altered puzzle swap where the theme was superheroines...I knew nothing about them but I learned a lot and it was my favorite theme to do for my partner!  So I am up to learning about elfquest or other cherished themes you guys might have!

Saint_Angel--those are really cool!  I really do like the second one because like you said, you can put in different expressions!  Great idea...still working on a design for mine...I did use some foam rings that come on spindles of CD's to make plain circles for my papercrafts, but I really love the idea of making a design!

16274  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Ongoing Dotee Craftalong-2010 on: May 03, 2010 09:13:32 AM
Are you addicted to making and receiving dotees?  Do you want to learn new techniques or share your tips?  Do you have tons of little bits of fabric, yarn, clay, metal, or other interesting things that need to be used up?

Then this craftalong is for you!! Hone your skills or try out new things--get inspiration and confidence to join the wonderful dotee swaps!

We will have monthly themes and challenges that you can join in if you want...

It looks like for the month of May, we are going to learn and practice making sculpted faces from pantyhose!

We hope to have plenty of progress pics, instructions, and of course, dotees!!!
16275  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / STATUS REPORT AS OF MAY 1 on: May 03, 2010 08:46:50 AM
Here is the report I have from all of the PM's I received!  Please check for accuracy as I am known to make typos!
It is still not too late to be added to the report and be part of the May Contest!

Remember: for every two projects POSTED in May (or one large project!), you will get one chance in a drawing; the more you make, the more chances you get. Anybody can win, even if you only make two things!  Good luck!

Prize: $20 Visa Gift Card

Remember also that this thread is for you!  No pressure to compare yourself with others, etc. Maybe you will be motivated, maybe you will change your list or add to it...I know after seeing how many people were nearly half done, that I am really motivated to up my list!

oh oh--I got it! Cheesy  Yeah--a theme within the craftalong!  I agree--no stress and when there is a swap, there will be more people and more new things to try!  I am always hesitant to try new things with a swap in case I am horrid at it or it does not work out...trying it in a craftalong would be fun and maybe we could turn some of them into swappable dotees as well! I am digging out some old stockings to try the sculpted faces as well...and I would love to try an applehead!! Cheesy
16277  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: It's nettle time! on: May 03, 2010 07:51:26 AM
I thought I found some in my back acreage--I printed several pictures to take along with me and I did find plants that had stingers on them and a reddish stem like the pic Wulf has...I touched and poked and even tore off a piece to eat but no sting! And the taste was horrid as well, so I guess it must be something else!

I have given up and decided I will have to order and plant it myself!

Lemon balm--ugh-- I love to use this plant but it has overtaken my bed and now onto my hubby's grass, so we have been digging it up and will replant in a container...a very hard plant to kill and keep under control!

I appreciate all of the tips and health news on these natural remedies !

Well, a craftalong is really not meant to be a swap but it would bring in others that want to make these but might not be interested in swapping--kinda like a learn as we go, showing off tips and new projects...I think that a lot fo people would be interested in seeing the process of making a sculpted face like what Alternawidget showed us...

I am sure that Smmarrt is going to be doing another dotee swap as well (right!?Cheesy)...

The craftalong would be more for making dotees with no real partner in mind (but they could be swapped later if you want?)...

I will take some pics of my clay faces and when we can load pics, I will start the craftalong and see how it goes...
16279  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dotees - Mini Art Dolls - Round 9 Send Out 4/19/10 on: May 03, 2010 06:38:22 AM
I would love to do a dotee craftalong!!  I have so many ideas...I was thinking that if I made a few, I could experiment and learn without having to worry about a partner...I made some molded faces already and learned from that...I would love to try the sculpted panyhose faces...I would like to try more embroidery...maybe we could do a monthly challenge dotee thing--like a dotee made of unusual materials, an unusual shape, animal dotee, etc.

Anyone interested?
16280  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: FrugALong 2010 April theme on First Post on: May 03, 2010 06:32:52 AM
What a great saying!  I want to be inspired not tired!  As I was working in my new clean papercrafts room this weekend, I realized how much less time it took for me to craft because all of my supplies were in reach...and I was not surrounded by old clothes, paper, junk, etc. So freeing!  So thank you thank you to all who inspired me to do this--I want to hang the rest of my art work (mostly from Craftster friends!) and then show it off...it is not perfect, but way better than it was...in two weeks, our dumpster is being delivered so all the stuff I hauled to the garage will be gone...I am a bit stressed but determined not to go look one more time to take something back...

My black jean skirt is coming along great...I managed to learn the feather stitch and also the split stitch!! But embroidering on denim is hard on my hands!  I figure if I do a little each night, it won't be so hard on me...

I picked three bags of lettuce and brought two into work to give to a friend...we are both dieting so salads are on our lunch menu!
