281  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Kosher? on: July 13, 2007 05:11:10 AM
Just curious if anyone else on Craftster keeps kosher?

It would be nice to have some people to swap new kosher recipes.  Smiley
282  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / July 4th Smilies on: July 04, 2007 08:43:21 AM
On other holidays (Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving), I've noticed the smilies are suited for those particular occasions. So I was just wondering if we could have some for July 4th?

Oh, and BTW Happy and safe July 4th.  Grin
283  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Mosaiced Watering Can (Images Galore) on: June 29, 2007 11:21:41 AM
This is a project I did for a swap on a mosaic website, and thought I would share it here on Craftster. Smiley

We all got the same watering can from another member, and had to mosaic it then mail it out July 1. The can is 15" wide from the tip of the spout to the very end of the handle. The can itself is 6" high + add in the spout & it's 9" high. The inside bottom is raised so it's only 4" deep .

I covered the can with black spray paint, then did a gradient pattern from balck to white in tile. That part was grouted in yellow. The handle has mirrored pieces, and was then grouted in black.
Before watering can:

Completed Watering can:

Inside I painted "How does your garden grow?", and placed some glass pieces for a flower and leaves. Then I sealed the inside with resin to cover.

More Outside:

I hope the swap partner is pleased with her watering can. I really did enjoy this swap!
Comments always welcome.  Smiley
284  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Two Ideas: Board & Profile on: June 28, 2007 08:45:37 AM
Maybe I should make to separate posts, but I have two suggestions for Craftster.

  • Have a board or sub-board for mosaics. I've seen mosaics posted in various boads across Craftster, and sometimes I miss the new ones because they are on a board I don't read regularly.Sample: Mosaic Search Results
  • Make each persons (or just the FOC if that is better) gallery clickable through their profile.

285  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Digital Art Challenge? on: June 14, 2007 08:27:36 AM
Anyone interested in doing a digital art challenge?

If so some possible ideas on a theme:
  • color
  • geometric shapes
  • flowers
  • love
  • life

Open to other ideas if this challenge is of interest.  Smiley
286  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaiced Birdbath, Birdhouse & Birdfeeder on: May 14, 2007 04:41:33 PM
These are the first mosaics I have made with the intent of keeping them for myself. Every other mosaic I've made was for selling or giving. Over all I'm pleased with the outcome, and have these checked off my list of TBM (to be mosaiced). ~: )



Birdhouse: (NOTE: These images of the birdhouse were taken prior to finally cleaning, and sealing.)

287  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Laptop on: March 23, 2007 05:53:33 AM
I lucked into a Dell laptop, and have a few ideas I am thinking of doing to utilize it. Please tell me what you think.

For the keys/keyboard I want to pop the keys, and make them all magnets, with metal placed under them.

For the screen I was thinking of doing one of 3 things:
  • make it a white board for messages
  • make it into a corkboard for messages
  • make it into a chalkboard for messages

Not sure what else could be done, but I want it to be a fun message center for home or office. Make sense?

By the way, I've removed the hard drive, and anything that adds weight to the laptop, so it almost weighs nothing.

Ideas would be awesome!  Grin
288  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Holy Cow! Crash Glass Trivet! on: March 15, 2007 12:01:31 PM
Added this new mosaic piece to my shop today, and had loads of fun it. I've used "crash" glass to make this fun trivet. The cow turned out so good, I really want to keep it!

Comments and input would be great!  Smiley
289  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Morning Glory Mosaic on: March 01, 2007 11:49:52 AM
This is one of my latest mosaics. I used all sorts of various mediums to create it, and am pleased with the outcome.  Smiley
290  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Texas Flag Mosaic on: February 09, 2007 12:48:11 PM
Just finished this today for my in-laws, who live in Austin, Texas. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.   Smiley

The substrate is plexiglass, with stained glass pieces, grouted in black. Then I put hooks and a chain to hang it from.
