41  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sea Spool on: June 22, 2014 09:22:55 AM
Participated in the altered spool swap, and hazelly was my partner. She likes ocean life, sea turtles, star fish, jelly fish, etc. So that is the theme I went with, and this is the result.
Whole thing:

The spools are covered in sand and glitter. The jellyfish are shrink plastic. The rope for wrapping is hemp, and that is an actual piece of fishing net. The sea turtle was the hardest part figuring out a pattern.
This was a challenge but fun. Once I got my idea formulated it was a matter of placing things in a successful manner. Smiley

44  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Washi Tape Coasters on: May 09, 2014 08:28:05 AM
Yes, I've jumped on the Washi tape bandwagon (Thanks Kittykill!).

These are inexpensive coaster that I covered the disk with Washi tape and then sealed with resin. The green ones are my favorite.


This pattern is so retro cool.


These flowers are so pretty.


Thanks for checking it out Smiley :

46  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hostess Gifts on: April 11, 2014 01:29:33 PM
Needed two gifts for friends who have invited us for meals during Passover. So for under $15.00 I made these two packages.

Got plain wooden and resin cooking tools and painted them in three colors (red for meat, blue for dairy and green for parve). Then took plain burlap canvases and painted the surname initial with a stripe and embellished it with a flower. Wrapped them in a new dish towel tied with a bow and card and done.








Now all they need are pretty gift bags. Smiley Thank you for checking them out.

Have had this pinned for a long time, so knew exactly what to do for this challenge. The site linked to the project is gone, so had to figure it out as I went along.

49  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearls & Peanuts Necklace on: April 01, 2014 06:04:02 AM
Saw this on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/112308584432790770/

This is my interpretation:


Here is the back, which I think is pretty also.


Was certainly a first for making jewelry with peanuts, but not the last. Think nuts are a highly underrated medium. Smiley
50  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Circus Peanut Card Stamping on: April 01, 2014 05:18:49 AM
Wanted to make a cute fun card for my husband, and had inspiration strike when I saw these classic candies on sale! Circus Peanuts (The Greatest Treat on Earth)! Who does not love a good orange peanut now and again?  Smiley



So here are the supplies you will need for our easy card of lurve!

1 orange peanut
adhesive
paper
letters or stamps
nail file
google eyes

After you make the paper card the size you want, get ready with your peanut. They have a dip on the bottom so you will need to file it flat to use for stamping.


Once flat get your ink pad and cover the bottom carefully but well.

Press one impression onto the cover of the card. Place your google eyes and draw on a mouth. Then add lettering, either by cut out or stamping.


Then add your lettering on the inside, sign and put in an envelope!


Then have more circus fun with a photo shoot with the rest of your orange goodness, before you devour them. Smiley Elephant Ballerina courtesy of rackycoo.
