1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 17 ENTRIES / A haunting time! on: February 28, 2007 07:00:34 PM
I've so been waiting for this challenge theme to come up!  Smiley  I love making clocks, and I love trying to break the rules with them.  I've made a shadowbox clock with race cars, a giant clock, even one in a book box.

This is one of my favorites though, and it still isn't quite finished (it needs a topcoat of mod podge sealer still)!

Here's the clock:



I've been watching Danny Phantom lately, and I'm a lifelong fan of Ghostbusters, so I thought why not combine them?

For the first time I've done something really different for the hands, that's part of why I love it!  Here's Slimer floating around as the hour hand:



Danny Phantom is the minute hand:  (I actually was planning on using a shot of him flying in his costume, it's in the corner, but this pose covered the shape of the minute hand better -- he's too skinny!)



And the second hand is a proton beam shot from one of the Ghostbusters' proton packs, I still may redo this if I can find a better image to work from.  Not easy to find a clear unobstructed proton beam screen cap!!!




Oh and since it's ghostly and because I love making stuff glow in the dark -- the green 'slime' background and the ghost in the GB logo are glow-in-the-dark!  I tried and utterly failed to get a piccy of how it looks in the dark.  Trust me that it looks totally awesome!

Sorry I'm so slow!  I'm a procrastinator, and plus I haven't felt so hot lately.  I've spent more time sleeping than crafting the last few weeks.

But finally, my goodies that I got!  Cheesy

First from my partner, DLSDesigns: 

A really neat pillow




A cool CSI NY switchplate made from a comic page (now I really have to straighten up so it will actually be visible on my wall!)



Framed CSI NY comic page with a really neat frame:



Other CSI stuff:


And then some cool yarn and crafting supplies she added (I love the color of the yarn, no clue what I'm going to make with it yet, though!)





And from my swap angel ..button-up.. :

Group shot


Neat books that are actually hiding places (I love these kind of books!)



Gun painting (it says "Calleigh Duquesne, Ballistics"!  Yay!)



Fingerprinting kit



Awesome calendar  (I love the quotes!  The one on that first page is actually one of my absolute favorites and I was so excited when I opened the box and saw it!)




And the piece de resistance, a Calleigh Duquesne doll!  She's so adorable!  I just love her dress.  Smiley



And here she is hanging out with my teddy bear



(yes, he is wearing a Bears sweater.  Meeting Calleigh was a little bit of a pick-me-up after that disappointing Super Bowl.  Oh well, NASCAR race season has begun!  Go Mikey!)


Thank you so much to both my partner and my angel and to our wonderful organizer!!  Sorry I'm such a slowpoke with posting pictures!

I'd offer but I really can't afford to participate right now, and I am still a little confused how these ongoing swaps work.  I really wish I could participate in another round but my hours are being cut Sad  Which stinks, because this is a really fun swap!

Guess that makes me really weird.

Back in college my friend and I were working on a project....we tried to get pictures of a die cast NASCAR Nextel Cup car in as many unusual places as possible.  Smiley  We had people pose with it, got pictures of it with other cars and on the pit lane wall at Chicagoland Speedway.

By comparison a stuffie almost seems normal.

That sounds like something I would do. Smiley  I work for Nascar so I was a little disappointed I couldn't bring my partner's stuffie to races. But I did go to one nascar related event with him. Who was the driver of the car you brought around?

and my partner's stuffie is all ready and his plane is supposed to leave in about an hour. Smiley

It was Dale Earnhardt Jr's #3 Nabisco yellow Busch car, 1:24 scale Smiley  (this was before Jr stole Mikey's crew and I stopped rooting for him mind you)

And I actually took a few shots with my Michael Waltrip #15 NAPA Chevy die cast, wish I knew where those pictures were!

Hiya, the slowpoke here finally getting around to posting pictures!  Cheesy

I still haven't had a chance to take pictures of the duct tape wallet kit, since it came while I was hip-deep in Christmas crafting, but here's the lap quilt kit from SevsOnlyGirl!



The lovely fabric and the yarn for tying the layers together (wee, blue, I love it!)


This fabric is actually one I have been eyeing and trying to talk myself out of buying for a while now. Cheesy  So sparkly!



Lovely blue thread


Template for cutting my own squares (if I don't get too confused by this quilt that is Cheesy ) and a rotary cutter to cut with



Batting and needles




Now I just need to pry myself off the computer and get started sewing!  I've been writing fanfics so much lately I haven't gotten started on this yet Smiley

And I will get pictures of the duct tape wallet kit posted soon, I swear!  Smiley

Okay, my bad, I'm really slow when it comes to getting pictures posted.  But, finally, here's the awesome stuff I got from nifuu

The way cool tartan fabric I saw when I opened the box (which made me jump up and down, yes I am that easily excited by anything Scottish):


Group shots



Way cool yarn (including a skein of my beloved Opal sock yarn, I really have to finish the socks I've got on the needles so I can make my Zebra socks!)



Butterscotch goodness!





More food!




Earrings and hairclips (these didn't come out too well):





Again, thanks so much to my wonderful partner and sorry it took me forever to post!  Cheesy

Okay, I'm super slow Smiley but here's the package I sent my partner

Group shot:



A pair of latex gloves (a must have for any CSI!) and a little extra Christmas craft (it's a set of paper strips that you make a paper chain with):



CSI hat:



CSI t-shirt:




An apron (the gun and body chalk outlines are done freehand, I'm pretty proud of that because I cannot draw to save my life!):



Tote bag:




Soaps (I couldn't find molds that were really CSI-ish, and I don't know how to make my own yet, but I found some fossil ones):



And then the piece de resistance, the evidence!  Lifted from Dr. Syd Hammerbeck's lab, it's a severed nose in a jar.  Unfortunately the pictures did not come out too well but it's supposed to be a nose in a jar of formaldehyde (it's a fake nose in yellow glycerin soap).  I even made a neat-o evidence label filled out by Syd himself!







I was a little stuck for ideas but once I figured out what I was doing, I had fun with this swap!  Smiley

I'm still interested but right now life is way too hectic for any swaps.  I'm not going to be participating in any swaps til February at least, since Christmas is too crazy, then it's inventory time at work.

But if y'all wait til Feb I'll be in with bells on!  Cheesy
