21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Macrmaed plant hangers *Many Pics* on: March 22, 2008 10:44:18 AM
I've been making these for a while, I give most of them away. I just made this one for a friend and decided to show off some of my others as well...




Here is my "candy caneish" plant hanger (the pot I currently have in it is too small)



here's my big one, but it's kinda hard to see

22  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / looking for a good beginner pattern. on: February 21, 2008 10:37:29 AM
I am thinking about trying my hand at quilting. My best friend wants a quilt for her bed. I have old black, deep wine red, and ivory silk sheets, that match her room perfect. The problem is, I've never made a quilt before. I want it to be a more adult romantic quilt. Not a funky country type quilt. They may look cool, but it wouldn't go well in her room. Can anyone offer any patterns/ideas? Remember, I have never made a quilt before, so it need to be super easy.
23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Autumn necklace on: February 11, 2008 04:08:59 PM
I bought these glass leaf beads a while ago, and wanted an acorn bead to make a necklace. I eventually took a lampwork bead class and learned to make my own glass beads. so I finally made my glass acorn bead, and made a chain from some copper wire and voila...






forgive all the pictures, I'm just really happy with it. Grin
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Magic cards tote *pic heavy* on: February 11, 2008 02:09:06 PM
My husband plays the card game Magic. When we go out of town, he is always taking his cards with him. So for Christmas, I made him a custom magic card tote. He LOVED it! I was pretty happy, because it took forever to complete. But I am really happy with the finished product. I copied the backs of magic cards and decoupaged a lunch box, and a card tin for his counters n' such.


I also made up some fake cards to decorate the box. I scanned a card, added my own picture and changed the text to something funny that describes him.  Here's an example (He's also real big into video games) It's the best I could do with my limited knowledge of paint, I think they turned out pretty good.


I also drilled a hole in a 20 sided die, and added it as a charm on the side he can use as a life counter.


On the inside I made dividers to separate his different decks, and the counter box I made. On the inside of the lid, I decoupaged a magnet to look like a card to hold an occasional rare card or trade, untill he adds it to a deck. It looks very realistic. when he saw it he was trying to figure out why this card was stuck to the lid. voila my husband's Christmas gift!


25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / tatted-macramed necklace on: February 11, 2008 12:24:45 PM
I fell in love with this stone. I had to buy it. I knew how I wanted it to look in my head, but I was having problems figureing out the pattern for it, and decided the easiest way to make it without it being too thick was to tat & macrame the necklace. Now that it's done, I've came to the conclusion that all tatting really is, is macrameing with a needle.  Roll Eyes
Anyway, I Love my new necklace. I'm really happy with how it turned out. So, what do you think?





26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / macramed double helix necklace on: February 11, 2008 12:14:45 PM
I bought this doughnut bead a while ago and finally made a necklace for it. I wanted it to twist around eachother. Something to kind of match the bead. I didn't have a pattern, I figured it out for myself, so I'm pretty proud of it. My husband calls it my double helix necklace. It's not too easy to tell from the picture, but the two square knot chains do twist around eachother.

28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My crocheted Stockings on: December 15, 2007 11:59:42 PM
I made these super-soft stockings a while ago with a pattern I found online. The ones on the ends are made with Lion brand Chinelle, but they were too big for my likeing and very shiny (not that you can tell from the picture). So I did the one's in the middle in Lion brand homespun yarn. I like those better, because they look more old-fashion countryish. The pictures don't really do them justice, but I am a crocheter not a photographer.


Here is a little bit better picture of one of the shiny ones


these are my favorite


29  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help! I need guidance! on: December 15, 2007 09:03:01 PM
So, I am making these pillows for a friend...ta-da!

Yes, the picture is super dark, and if you can see it at all, you can tell it's covered in loose ends that I've yet to weave in, but it's a work in progress.

As you can see, I have left an opening at the bottom to remove the pillow if it ever needs replaced or washed because I don't want to have to put in a zipper.

It's mostly for decoration, so I don't expect it to get dirty, but I can be a bit OCD about things at times and want to make sure it can be washed when it needs to be. It's a pain the the @$$ to put in and take out because the hole is so small. and I think it would look much nicer if I sealed it up all the way around. Is this how it's usually done, or am I supposed to seal it all the way? If you washed the enire pillow, would it dry properly, or would the inside get moldy because it didn't dry all the way through?
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / licence plate CD holder on: August 10, 2007 04:01:27 PM
I saw one of these at school. I fell in love with it and had to make one myself (thanks to my DH who got me my dremmel tool for Christmas). I used my old Utah plate, and I put on a snap to close it. I figure it's perfect for raod trips right? I want to make some for Christmas gifts, if I can find more licence plates... Looks like I'll have to make a new one, because someone stole this one from me Sad



and here is is open.


and from the inside.
