1  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


2  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.

3  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?

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


5  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?


6  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.

7  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?

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Argyle Wreathe from recycled goods! on: December 15, 2007 02:56:01 PM
Gotta love recycling and the free goods you get from it, eh? Since I didn't own a wreathe and I'm too cheap to buy one I made one using spare supplies i had sitting around: cardboard circle, plastic bags as stuffing, some awesome argyle plaid fabric, gold snowflake ribbon, red cording to hang it from and red/brown ribbon to make the bow. About 14inches tall and no sewing required, woohoo!

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / First Baby blanket and 6hrs friggin later..... on: December 01, 2007 10:16:33 AM
My cousin decided to hire me to make her friend a fleece baby blanket, fine I can do a square blanket shouldn't be too hard right? Well my deadline was in 2 days since it's going to ship to Canada. Well 6hrs later, more seam ripping than sewing, bunched up thread, fabric being too thick to sewn on, swearing.... you get the point, I finally finished the blanket. I hope she approves. She wanted snowflakes as the theme and the blanket in baby blue and K for the girls name(i bought that), the white trim is soooo soft and fluffy. It also converts into a pillow. All designs were done free hand on my machine.


This snowflake took me an hour so it would be measured accurately and precise.

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Looking for a pillow-blanket pattern/tutorial on: November 28, 2007 08:14:25 PM
Does anyone know how to make those blankets that fold up into a pillow and tuck inside a fold? I'm trying to vision the pattern in my head without much success. I want the pillow to come out square, not rectangle(I know how to have a rectangular pillow outcome). I want to make a baby blanket for my cousin using this method. Any ideas or pictures? I'm good at taking a pattern apart if I could find a picture of one.
