81  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hunger Games inspired jewelry on: March 15, 2012 07:38:38 AM
I've been really excited about the Hunger Games movie coming out so I've been crafting up a storm.  Can't wait to show off some of these pieces opening night!  Others have gone out to friends or in swaps.

My favorite piece:  Girl on Fire bracelet.  I received some really neat red and yellow swirled beads from a swap and to me they look like fire! 

Some other charm bracelets.  I made the book frame charms:

This one went out in the OTT Hunger Games swap.  She wanted a cuff type bracelet and really liked this quote. 

Earrings.  Love them!  Just the perfect amount of dangle for me.

Book Hook for the Catching Fire book:

And a non trinket, but neat, stenciled shirt.  I made this and then it didn't fit, next time I should probably try to fit the shirt before I spend the time on it, LOL.

Thanks for letting me share my current obsession with you all!
82  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Harry Potter Snitch Class Valentines & Tute! on: February 03, 2012 06:44:12 PM
Daughter has been obsessed with Harry Potter lately and wanted to do something Potterish for her Valentines this year.  I'm one of the mean moms that make my kids bring something other than candy, so we decided on bouncy balls made into golden snitches.

Aren't they just the cutest! 

Supplies:  Bouncy Balls (6 for a $1 at Dollar Tree), Wing outlines (we did ours on cardstock to be more sturdy), Gold foil squares you can get from the chocolates/candy section of your local hobby store ($3ish), glue gun or could use tape.

Get one gold foil and wrap one around a ball.

Glue a strip in the center and push on your ball (or tape the strip to the ball).


Do it about thirty more times for all the kids in the class. LOL

Here's a template I made to make your lives easier.  Wink

Thanks for looking!  Daughter is so excited for Valentines day and to show off her snitches!
83  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Simpson's Pig Cufflinks on: November 02, 2011 10:57:31 AM
A few months ago I saw this post:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=388525.0  and almost died laughing.  I knew I had to make them for my bro as we are both major major Simpson's fans.  Everything we say to each other is a Simpson's quote, so these were perfect for his upcoming wedding.

And they were perfect, when he opened them he fell back on the couch and kicked his feet in the air he was laughing so hard.  Told him I made them as a gag gift and he didn't need to wear them, were just for funnies, but he wouldn't hear of it.  He wanted to wear them!  At least some of the time.  So he ended up wearing them for pictures, but not too much time other than that.  Not sure wifey would have liked that too much, LOL.

Took about four hours total for these guys, which is funny because I truly meant for them to stay in the box so that's a lot of work on something for one laugh. 

Here's the reference pic:

And the happy bro on his day:

84  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Very Potter Halloween on: November 01, 2011 07:22:02 AM
My 7 year old has developed an intense love of all things Harry Potter, so we all went as Potter characters for Halloween this year.

Hermione and Ginny

Professor McGonagall


And because our pumpkins had to be in theme:

Apparently Snape likes baked goods:

Thanks for looking!
Hope you had a great Halloween!

The family is going dressed as Harry Potter characters for Halloween this year so decided to paint our pumpkins to go along with the theme.  

Here's Voldey in all his pumpkiny goodness.

And here's Dobby!

The rest of the Potter crowd.  Harry and a snitch.
86  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sculpted & Korker Hair bows on: September 05, 2011 04:43:55 PM

Thanks for looking!
87  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / La Push Themed Craft Room Redo on: August 29, 2011 08:14:30 AM
Finally finished up my craft room.  It started out as a lilac wall mess (although it will soon turn into a cream wall mess I'm sure, lol)

*hides*  Yes, this was my workspace.

Purple walls and crazy closet, but you can see my awesome ribbon storage!  I bought house gutters from the hardware store and cut them up then attached them to the wall.  So much easier to just pick a ribbon roll out then try to figure out how much I need and cut it off when I had a rack that all were hung from the middle pole.  

So painted it with the discarded guest room paint.  It ends up being a nice cream and not as peach in this room with the better lighting.  Plus I had to match the strange sage carpet.  Then I put up my la push beach picture.  It moves!  And then painted my tribal wolves.  I love love the wolves.  And the best part was I painted them.  By doing it myself and not buying wall vinyl, I saved probably $80-$100.  

Closer of my wolfies

In process

Thanks for letting me share!
88  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hairbows on: August 16, 2011 05:41:35 PM
Thought my girls needed some new hairbows for school, so I went on a bow making craze. 

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
89  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wolf Tree of Life Pendant on: July 13, 2011 05:49:20 PM
My newest interest.  Tree of life geode pieces.

Made this tree of life pendant on a geode my father in law picked out.  I have it on a wire hanger here, but just because it's a gift for him and I don't think he'll wear it.  With my other tree's I just attach a straight black cord. 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
