1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / BOYS ONLY!!!....? on: July 13, 2007 06:54:25 AM
okay, is it totally rude/ against some rule i don't know about to have a boys only swap? i know, i know; it's not very inclusive... (like, at all) but i was truly inspired by the bigboys/biggirls swap and decided that there should be a swap for the marginal minority of boys on craftster. (if anyone honestly agrees with me, i'll be stunned!)
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / face-up for bjd on: June 20, 2007 06:06:34 PM
so, i have a resin ball-jointed doll and i really want to be able to do a permanent face-up on him. oh, i know it's not that expensive to get another person to do it for me, but that's not the point! i want to be able to do my OWN doll's face-up! i'm guessing acrylic paint, but is there a specific kind of sealent i should use to avoid discoloration of the doll? (i've heard that's an issue...) the other problem: i don't want to buy online; i want to find all the supplies i need in some local store! so far, hobby stores and art stores alike have had no ideas... am i just high on a pipe dream wanting to do my own face-up?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / my all-nighter! lots of ATCs! on: June 17, 2007 12:05:44 PM
yeah. i really got hooked on ATCs recently and i made these all in one night.  -.o


(this first one says, "you can make the best of a bad situation- they make diamonds out of coal")




(the one with the duck says, "you can't aim a duck to death.")


4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / trump bowl on: July 28, 2006 09:11:45 PM
okay, i call playing cards "trump" ... i think i spent too much time in japan... anyway, i threw this bowl and glazed it myself. this is the only good piece of pottery i've thrown so far. it's in blue and purple, two of my favorite colors! i have allways loved playing cards and tarot cards. for this bowl, i picked playing cards as the theme because the imagery of the suits is simpler than that of tarot.

what are your thoughts on the concept and the final product itself?








5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / oyster shell necklace on: July 27, 2006 01:08:52 PM
this necklace i made for my mom for mother's day a few years back. she lost a necklace in the sea one year and i decided to make her one that is remnant of the sea! i found the oyster shell in a shop here in NC and felt inspired. there are plenty of beads including some gold dolphins... i guess you could say that Lassen would be proud! i (stupidly) had it on fine string (which broke) and i restrung it (as it is now) on cable wire (or that's what i think it's called...) i have both sides of the shell shown, by the way.

anyway, nautical craftsters, let me know what you think about my design and my concept with this necklace, please!






6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / "chandelier tiara" and matching earings on: July 25, 2006 04:38:32 PM
let me know what you think!

these are photos of my "chandelier tiara" and matching earings. i made them today. it took about 3 hours for all pieces combined. they are made of silver-colored copper wire, glass beads, and cast... some kind of metal... pieces (for the hearts and the chandelier bits). it was loosely inspired by the vivienne westwood orb that my friend kiwii gave to me (photo also included). this one's for you, kiwii! oh, and also for janna, the power-walking princess! <3 oh, and my panda's a tiara model!
