6701  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap (CLOSED send-outs 4/23) on: April 26, 2008 09:07:26 AM
My jar from Aimee_Ant123 has been taking a tour of the US - I expect it to zero in on my house any day now. Cheesy

Tee-hee! In a recent swap, a package sent to me took a side trip from Indiana to Arizona before heading to Massachusetts. I guess it was looking for some warm weather for a bit Wink
6702  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Practice Macro Photos (img heavy) on: April 26, 2008 08:31:34 AM
Well, after entering and then perusing the Macro Photo Challenge, I decided that I needed to play around with my camera a bit more. I let the camera do most of the work, but I think there is a way for me to exert a little more control...I'll just have to find the manual and do a bit of reading Wink

Anyway, here are some of my favorites out of the dozen or so that I took. And, I realized that one drawback to macro photos is that they make the dust look macro too!

Yoda Toy (still in package)

Eileen "heart" Stan (This is etched into the glass of one of the windows of my house...from the original owner, I think...because the family I bought it from didn't have an Eileen or a Stan...)

My pile of watches

Tree Cookies (slices of tree trunks)

Pencil Sharpener

Light Switch (my house is in the middle of work...)


Pine Cone

K'nex Guy

Green Bottle

I didn't manipulate any of these photos. I have Photoshop, but I don't really know how to use it  Tongue

Neat squares, Puppy_girl! And, I bet if you steal a technique from an earlier square, you could make a smaller square bigger.

Sorcha, your square looks great! It looks like it will go really well with the squares we have already done. I've learned so much from crocheting each square- maybe one day I'll make one of my own, too!
6704  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap Gallery on: April 26, 2008 07:54:16 AM
More amazing jars! Again, I love how they look all packed up in the jar with little bits visible. But, I also love how cool they look when photographed in little artistic bunches. so cute!

And, panda, it was so sweet of you to send mini jars for your partner's kids!
6705  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: a handful of armadillos on: April 26, 2008 07:34:15 AM
These guys are so cute (the sunglasses rock)! I love the picture of them laying siege on the castle wall!

One of these days, my website mascots will be an armadillo and an iguana...you may have nudged me into working on that Wink

Can they roll into a ball when attacked?

Totally cute! And, I love his little feet!

I have one finished...almost...I have to weave in the ends. It's the Treble Dipped, which is really easy, and just a few minutes ago, I wondered if I could have carried the yarn up the side (all of the changes happen on the same side/edge)...not that I know how to do that, but if I can figure it out, it'd sure make life easier!

And, since I'm tired, but not quite tired enough to sleep, I went through all of the pics of cloths so far and picked out a few more I wanted to do. Then, I went through the patterns and picked out some more. I moved all of the ones I plan to do (26 at this point) into their own folder, and moved all of the patterns that I already did into another folder. Such an accomplishment Wink

And now, I'm tired enough to sleep...

I like the colors too craftADDchick. Have you posted a pic of all your squares together? 

Hmmmm...while I'm waiting for something to dry, I could go and do that...

Back in a bit...

Okay! Here they are!

6709  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Science IS Art Swap! (SIGNUPS CLOSED! Sendouts by 5/7) on: April 25, 2008 05:19:31 PM
That's how I work...I jump from one project to another. I'd like to say it's because I'm waiting for something to dry on one project so I need to work on another. But, it's usually because my craftin' ADD kicks in! I figure as long as I get them all done eventually, it doesn't matter if I take a more circuitous route Wink

ETA: I have one item officially finished! I think that, after shipping, it's going to need a bit of adjusting, but it's as finished as I can make it. Now, I just need to clean the other one...but I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night, so I'm packing it in. I don't want to break anything while I'm cleaning...

Oooh...that's such a bummer about your ruined project! I was holding my breath for one of mine- I had to punch and drill holes in something and I was so afraid that I would crack it. I held my breath at each step in the hole-making process... Fortunately, it survived! Which is good, because there was no way I was going to make another one right now. I have a list of back-up items, too, but I'm glad that, so far, I haven't needed them!

And, I'm waiting for acrylic spray to dry...that's why I'm goofin' around on Craftster...I like to call it multi-tasking Wink
