1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft for my Kid(human, fur baby or the like) Swap on: February 13, 2017 09:06:03 AM
I'm sure we all love seeing the excitement when are "kids" get a gift or surprise mail. So why not craft to their liking? Open to all species of kids. Wink Ex: Your child or grand baby may like a crochet dinosaur hoping out of egg and melted shaped crayons, Bird owner may get homemade pb nut treats and hanging toy, cat may get catnip toys and a new blanket, etc.
Anyone up for surprising a loved one? I know my lil man sure would love it! Smiley

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Anyone still up for a quick small items Christmas swap? Ho ho hooow's about it? on: November 13, 2016 03:11:39 PM
I was too tardy and missed signing up for abunch of christmas swaps that I would've love to join. *D'oh, smacks forehead*
 Anyone still in a jolly, energetic mood to do a quick Christmas swap? Could be fill a small 6 inch stocking or do 3-5 holiday oriented small items(ornaments, handmade popurri, trinkets, treats, jewelry, magnets etc). Send outs could be around Dec 15th so it arrives just before Christmas. I'm up for suggestions too!
 If there's not much interest, I'm up for a personal swap. Wink    Happy Holidays!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Faux fur and burgandy silk 30" infinity winter scarf on: July 12, 2016 05:25:15 PM
I whipped this puppy up from some of my leftover fabric, very easy to sew and from my own pattern. Its so comfy and warm! Cant wait for fall/winter to wear it!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / A swap for the pregnant ladies, those with newborns or younger kids? on: January 28, 2016 06:12:06 AM
Sitting here with my 7mos growing belly and I thought wouldn't it be fun to do a swap related to pregnant/child related items? It could be items for the new mom(homemade lotions, ice packs, home baked sweets, jewelry, artwork...) or items spoiling the newborn(binky holders, teethers, burp cloths, appliqued onesies...) or hand made items for a younger child say toddler aged(teddies/toys, a blanky,....). You don't have to be the mother, maybe you wanna gift items to a close friend/family member who is expecting or has had a child recently. Smiley I figure beginning of the year is a good time to start planning a swap for this.
I'm open to anymore ideas and for anyone that can run it!  Wink


5  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / My local animal shelter is looking for donated craft items for their craft sale! on: November 17, 2015 07:53:43 PM
Let me first say I've been working at this no-kill pet shelter for 6.5yrs and love my job. None of the animals have "expiration dates" and they stay till they find homes. They take in any breed and any age(they currently have an 11 yr lab up for adoption). Every year they have a "Howliday" craft and bake sale around christmas and are accepting ANY type of craft donation...human or pet related. Items would need to be received by Dec 11th (the sale is Dec 12th but they need time to price and organize) and are located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. They can even mail you back a tax receipt for deductible donation. 100% of the proceeds benefit this local shelter. They are not associated with Humane society of the United states, they are independent. See their website link here for more info:   http://www.sfhumanesociety.com/events.aspx?ViewEvent=18824

You can mail items directly to the shelter(3720 E Benson Road, Sioux Falls SD 57104). Any questions? I'm all ears. I've personally made magnets, fleece tie blankets, pet mats, braided fleece dog toys, almond bark dipped bones, catnip toys, baby headbands, dog bandanas,  necklaces and kids bracelets as some ideas. Smiley

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / My first Wreathe, Fall banner artwork and 2 stuffed pumpkins on: October 20, 2015 02:07:48 PM
Just worked these crafts up last weekend amongst my 2yr olds nap times. My first wreathe attempt using the ribbon weaving technique(or whatever you call it lol) and i plan to add bow and the letter T to it for our last name. I refuse to pay an outrageous amount for the pre-made ones in stores, ya know?
Opinions or tips?
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro Challenge Entry: Fuzzy Feet on: April 23, 2008 10:31:14 PM
Here's my photo entry. I just love furry kitty feet, so here's my silver grey boy Taz soaking up the sun. It may seem like a simple photo but i like it. Tongue


8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jersey mixed with Red plaid with braided straps on: March 21, 2008 12:41:31 PM
This is my first punk inspired top, the husband loves that it has a "peep" hole in the front. I had spare black and solid grey jersey and cut apart some old plaid boxers to create this braided strap top from scrap.  I don't have a serger but I think the sewing machine made it come out alright. What cha think?


9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Three new looks and designs! on: March 07, 2008 11:11:47 AM
Man I'm purse addict and I love unique bold prints so I made these three styles recently. I rarely make the same pattern over and over again but all have pockets.  I like bags that have more room to carry books and what not, so they're abit over sized.
Comments?

This has pink apples, i just love pink and brown!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New funky lamp shades on: February 19, 2008 04:22:50 PM
This is probably one of the easiest recons I've done and I love the result. Started with 2 cream colored lamps with grey bases which is too dull and boring for me. So i brought out the modge podge, made my patterns for the lamp shades out of the newspapers, bought some beautiful silver irredescent martha stewart decorating paper on sale for $2 a roll and ta da! Two new lamp shades for $1 each! Eventually I'll spray paint the base silver too. Comments?
