1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Halloween Resin Necklaces! on: September 07, 2008 02:23:40 PM
I know it's a little early but the few fall-like days we have had have really put me in the mood for Halloween! It's my favorite holiday and now I can't wait for it Smiley

So I've made a few Halloween necklaces. What's better than Halloween and Resin?  Cheesy







Thanks for looking! I'd love to know what you think! Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pillowcase tote bag :) on: September 02, 2008 01:03:50 PM
My mom sent me this link to a free pattern on Martha Stewart's website and asked me if I would make the tote bag for her. Of course I said yes...


I love the pillowcases! she sent 2 so I can make myself one.



I think it came out well and it was really quick to make.

I tried copying the link to here and it didn't work...here's a picture of the pattern

It's called Sleeper of a bag - I'm sure it can be found by searching her site Smiley

what do you think? thanks for looking! Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Necklaces and a ring - some resin of course! on: August 31, 2008 07:29:48 PM
I've been working on some new creations that I wanted to share.


I just realized how many of my resin creations are fish related...this was never really intentional! 


Platinum record


I added a pink background and some cabachons to the outside of this locket and then sealed it all with a layer of resin. I can decide if I love it or not.


I absolutely love this necklace! I think the rhinestones were a good touch.


and this fun little whipped cream ring I created.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Resin Photo Pendants on: July 30, 2008 08:34:11 PM
Here are some new resin pendants I have been working on. They are all Luxie Lou Designs original photos (mine or my boyfriend's). What do you think?

Red Dahlia


Pink Hibiscus

Both of these images have a lot of saturation, I love the look they have.


This is an image at the amusement park...the front is a ride in motion with large rollercoasters in the background.


This is a light up sign for the ride chaos.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Resin, sprinkles, glitter and more! on: July 11, 2008 09:58:57 PM
Here's some more resin pieces I have been working on!

Ice Cream Sundae and loads of candy sprinkles


Here I embedded a pink heart balloon and surrounded it with candy sprinkles and stars


Movie Night - I embedded a popcorn carton with overflowing "popcorn" and backed it with buttery looking yellow glitter.


here's another cupcake - I can't get enough of cupcakes...they're my favorite  Wink


Thanks for looking...Comments appreciated! Smiley

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Angel quesion on: December 22, 2007 08:15:56 AM
I had my first flaker ever in a swap I'm organizing Sad I found an angel within the swap for her though. Do I create new feedback for the angel or add it onto her original for the swap? And does she get FOC status?

Thanks for the help!

10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / OTT 16 (signups 11/4 - 11/10 sendouts 11/27) on: November 04, 2007 12:16:00 PM
Swap name:  One Tiny Thing Round 16
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: LuxieLou
Sign-up date range: 11/4 - 11/10 or until FULL
Date to send item by:  11/27/07

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No

All ages allowed? Yes but if you are under 16 please be sure your parent/guardian's permission. Make sure you can maintain reasonable communication with the thread and can get to the post office.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants:  N/A

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND DON"T REPLY WITH IT HERE.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Swap name: OTT Round 16
Craftster Username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?:
What craft skills can you use to make a high quality tiny item (ie.. knit, crochet, sew, quilt, shrine making etc..) :
What craft skills would you love your tiny item to be made with:
What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline) :
What are you favorite colors / motifs / styles:
What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)

A few rules:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 16 in the title of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it! Be Sure to PM the organizer when you have sent you OTT and when you have received your OTT!!

3.   A DC# is not required since the packages are very small.  In all cases, save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion.

4.   Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  Some people are forgetting this and so I'm mentioning it yet again - follow the rules!!

5.   I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you MUST inform me and your partner.

6.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

If you send on time and follow the guildelines of only one item, I will give you a "Great Swapper"
If you send late* (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
If you send late* but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination, I will give you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

You have 2 weeks to craft and maybe longer if this swap fills up fast so I'm going to consider you late if you don't send by November 27th and it will be noted in your feedback.  That may seem harsh to some but It's only ONE tiny item and 2 weeks should be long enough to get it done.
