i started out with this pendant for a coworker of mine:

I also have tons of rings that I'm probably going to post sometime tomorrow. I'm rather proud of the productivity that happened today. Smiley

23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ribbons flower pots. on: April 30, 2009 08:19:36 PM
I was fooling around with ribbon last night and ended up making five cute little bowls/pots..so i went to michaels and bought some styrofoam balls and some flowers and came home to make these:



I think they are adorable and happy!! My mom took the two little ones. One for her desk at work, and another for her friend at work.
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Resin Earth Day Goodies! [pic heavy] on: April 29, 2009 08:49:37 PM
So I was shopping at Target, and I saw this recycled jewelry thing for children to make on clearance. it was only $4.60 and it said they had charms and things, so i figured, why not?

When I opened it and found out that all of the "charms" were just recycled cardboard tags, I knew I had to do something with them.

so the ones that had a nice image that would fit into my resin mold, got made into resin pendants.

and here they be:
all of them are thumbnails, if you're more interested, click on them to enlarge them.











and my favorite::


comments and criticism welcome as always!

27  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / I need help getting started... on: August 05, 2008 05:54:38 AM
I've been crafting for years. Over the years, I've given away plenty of things I've made of holidays/birthdays/special occasions. I ended up selling all of my hemp necklaces for $1 at a garage sale my aunt set up [considering i had like..fifty of them...it was a nice profit when i made them three years ago  Tongue] and i sold soap once to a friend of mine, who is now my roommate.

but i don't know how to get started. I work overnights, I work every single weekend. And it's really hard to do a craft fair because i'd be up all night, than have to head to the craft fair, and than go to work again that night. i'm not so sure my body can handle that. plus, i don't want to be dead asleep while customers are looking at my stuff.

i know etsy and all those online places are a great option, but i've tried that, and didn't sell anything. and most of the people I talk to now are people that I'm extremely close to and would just give it away if they wanted it.

But I'm at the point where I have an 18 gallon tote full of scarves, 3 gallon tote full of miscellaneous necklaces, a shirt box filled with earrings, a jar filled with rings, and three baskets full of soap.

plus, i have more necklaces and earrings in the process. [my love is for jewelry.]

and my roommate wants to try out screenprinting, and get that into my business too. but i told her i didn't want to do that until i started actually SELLING things....... you know what I mean? because I dont want to end up with a bunch more totes filled with t-shirts that can be sold if the time ever comes.





i'm sorry for writing you guys a novel, but i'm just very fustrated and discouraged. any advice?
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / resin [excuse the crappy pictures...] on: July 26, 2008 06:14:49 AM
i've been meaning to post these for a LONG time but never really got around to it.
hereeee are some of my creations.

[again, sorry for the glare and the lack of detail...camera phones aren't the best (.. but you guys get the picture  Tongue)





29  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / painting for boyfriend (Drug related.) on: April 02, 2008 02:56:26 PM
I'm well aware that painting a poster that shows you don't care somebody you love is doing drugs is stupid, so please don't tell me. He asked me to draw him an awesome sign for his room..than i realized that I hadn't painted in three years. So I asked him if I could paint him a poster, and he said he would rather I did that. So... this is what I came up with.

The pictures were taken with my cell phone since my digital camera doesn't have batteries at the moment. So, sorry for the quality of the pic.
