11  Re: Fill-a-Matchbox SUPPLY Swap R2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by titancia on: April 14, 2007 11:06:09 AM
I heard my pictures weren't working for some reason?? I have no idea why! So I am reposting my post, along with pictures, so everyone can see the fabulousness that is my box. It is still the only one I've received so far.

My first box arrived!! I received from Lubee today!! I'm so excited!
 
Azure, my Blythe, was rather stoked about the picture on the box.

 
Here you can see all the little goodies she put inside! I LOVE the cupcake, but I think my favorite is the little lion button!

 
Here's another shot. Azure is is still eyeing the box. I'm sure I'll have to fight her for it!

12  Retro Flapper Button/Pins in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by titancia on: January 28, 2007 12:40:20 AM
I'm so excited about these... I've been drooling over those Flapper buttons ever since I saw them but seeing as my dog just broke her elbow and needs orthopedic surgery, it's going to be a while before I can get them. I do have a button maker (I have four, but I used my 1" for this), though, so I made my own! Well, pins instead of the kind of buttons you buy at Joanne's, but you know what I mean, I hope.

I was inspired by the flapper shirt buttons but also by a couple of photos of vintage handmade flapper face pins I came across.

 
My sister and I made 4. The sequins is under the mylar layer, but the little bump in the middle is these teeeny tiny rhinestones my sister had in her "Sparkle Stash" of loose rhinestones.


Here's a shot of the back so you know what kind of button I'm talking about. Smiley

ETA: I drew the girls faces in PSP7. I made them vectors so I can change the colors of things without too much trouble if I waqnt to change their eye color, hair color, skin color, etc.

14  Just in time for Halloween! Skull and candy bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by titancia on: September 17, 2006 01:01:25 AM
So, I got slightly obsessed with the candy bracelets. I made about 10 and gave them away to a lot of my friends and family, and kept one for myself of course! I just think the beads are SO adorable! I feel far from humble about it, which is weird since usually I don't gush about my own stuff or pass them out like they're, well, candy. Wink






The skull bracelet was fun to make and turned out a heck of a lot cuter than I thought it would. My mom said it would make a cute choker, which is what I was thinking, but the chain was already on the bracelet and I don't have any more of it, so while a similar one is planned in the future, it's not gonna happen now. Wink

15  In Celebration of Fall... A Maple Leaf Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by titancia on: September 09, 2006 03:58:20 PM
I made myself a Maple Leaf necklace I think is just gorgeous. Now I just need to find a shirt to go with it!
I made some earrings and I'm thinking if I found some orange glass beads I could make a pair to match it.


The front:


The back (which my mother likes better because of the center vein, so I guess you could say it's reversible):

16  Re: How's Your etsy Shop Doing? in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by titancia on: August 26, 2006 07:27:55 PM
I'm very excited to debut two new items in my shop! I have more that I need to put up along the same lines, but unlike I never do, I am going to try to space them out a bit to ensure more looks from people. Smiley

What do you think?

I say "vintage lucite" in the descrption because where I purchased them from said they were. In all honesty, I have no idea the difference between acrylic and lucite and don't know if I shouldn't include it after all, or if I should trust my source?

17  Extra Photos in The Swap Gallery by titancia on: August 16, 2006 10:37:54 PM
As part of the swap I got each partner (and myself!) a postcard signed by Titanic book author Lee Merideth, which was awesome to meet him! It was such a kick and a surprise! to meet someone whose book I had and read, and I picked up his new book as well.


I bought a vintage White Star Line uniform cap (complete with authentic WSL buttons!) off of eBay. Obviously it's not Titanic, but WSL ceased to operate in the 1930s so it's still really awesome to have a hat of it.
Here is my dog wearing the hat. This is one of those moments she looks like a baby seal: (poor old girl! she's 12 now)


And, what the heck! I'm a huge dork so may as well prove it with a photo, eh? Here's ME in the hat! Smiley
 I don't even know if I'm wearing it right. Probably not. I don't exactly have a "hat head" anyway. Tongue

18  What I sent in The Swap Gallery by titancia on: August 16, 2006 10:32:57 PM

This is my "Oh crap! I forgot to take a picture of everything!" shot. I tried to do sailorish colors. (Forgive the wrap job...it was more for security than anything else... I'm a TERRIBLE gift wrapper!)






These are the three different trunks my sister painted for the swap. (She made me one too...how sweet! Tongue Mine is the one with the dashed lines.)


Inside the top lid my sister included a different quote in each.


These are the bracelets my sister made with Morse code. Each strand says a different thing: "CQD" and "SOS" (calls for help) and "MGY" (Titanic's call letters).






My sister also created necklaces for everyone. They also have all 3 call letters on them that the bracelets do.

I don't have photos of what else I sent... I know i took them, I just can't find them in my photo folders so I will have to take new ones. I sent 1" buttons, a 1-1/2", a set of buttons made with pages from Walter Lord's "A Night To Remember" novel, a pair of earrings made with White Star Line's logo used on their uniform buttons, and a pocket mirror of the grand stair case I made with a photograph I took of the Grand Staircase recreation at the Titanic Exhibit in San Francisco (I, er, snuck it and took it right under the nose of the security camera!)

Photos!! I got my package from highschoolcrafter yesterday!! I'm feeling quite spoiled... A couple candies are missing from my package as well... My sister and dad took off with some of them. Wink




This was pretty cool!! You did an awesome job stenciling the words on. I've only stenciled a couple of shirts. I can't imagine how difficult that was with all the itty bitty pieces!

I'm sorry I can't help--I don't have my program at work--however, I did want to say that whenever you resize a photo from smaller to larger, there will always be a lot of distortion, and it will be blurry. If you can find a better cap of the picture, perhaps in a larger quality that someone has captured, it will resize better.

There is a community on livejournal.com, cap_it, where people post their caps, and someone posted some of Blur's:
http://community.livejournal.com/cap_it/1408613.html

Perhaps instead of that cap you could choose a similar one, like this?
