7311  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Melting Madness Swap! Sign-ups 08/26/07- 09/13/07; Send-out by 10/09/07 on: September 05, 2007 03:24:11 PM
I could actually make this my first swap if I really wanted... The only thing that's worrying is that I've never meltcrafted anything bigger than a coaster...

Well... I've got plenty of time to think about it.

I've never melted anything either besides shrink plastic. But, it sounds like fun!

I want to do this. But I don't know what all I can do. :[

Did you peruse the list of links on the first page? There are some things you can melt besides beads.

but my mom smelled the cds she told me id be grounded for a year if i did it again w/o permition

Ooops! I guess if I was melting in my mom's oven, she'd pretty much pitch a fit, too!

i want to try melting stuff in my toaster oven/ oven,  ive got permition!!, but the one consern my parents had is that it would make the oven smell like melting plastic every time they use it.
Has anyone had this problom?

Glad you have permission now! I don't know if it would make the oven smell, though. I know when I do polymer clay, I cover it with foil to "contain" the fumes and then open it up the foil outside. I don't know if it's the best idea for the clay, but it makes the house and oven less stinky. Maybe someone with more melting experience can answer this better...

And Kimi is on her way! I'll miss her! As I was driving her to the post office today I was thinking of all of the other places that we could have visited and pictures that I could have taken.

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of Al. I didn't realize how much I would miss him! Since he first landed/crashed, he has spent much of his time watching TV and surfing the net, so I know he was glad of the chance to get out and about in the world. I'm sure that now that he has had a taste of adventure, he'll want to get out more often! Of course, I'll have to keep him safe from the paparazzi Wink

I printed out the last of my pics today at CVS, instead of waiting for the good photoshop tomorrow. I've got 21 pages, I think. And, I hope I didn't ruin it, but I decided to hand write out the text. I know that I would have driven myself crazy trying to get the right fonts and sizes and shape of the text boxes. I just have to do the cover, and the scrapbook is done. Tomorrow night, I'll be finishing up the rest of the stuff I'm sending (a couple of clothing items for Miss Kimi DareBear), and I have to make sure that her passport is filled out!

Oh, I'm with you on the handwriting the text. I think it looks like it has more personality that way!  Cheesy And that's really a part of this too!

I figured it'd be okay. Most of the magazines I read that mention scrapbooking say that it's like putting a little of yourself into the book when you add your own handwriting. I just wish that little bit of myself was a little bit neater Wink

I love the shape of this bag! And the color of the yarn is fabulous! The flower is a great touch, and the handles look great. It looks fairly simple, so I, too, would love a tutorial. Thank you for offering!

I'm taking another break...the ADD is in my username for a reason Wink

I have all of my pics sorted and all of the ephemera sorted and cut out. I realized that I forgot to print a few pics, so I need to leave space for them and get them done on Tuesday afternoon. Then, I'll just need to stick those in.

The part that will actually take me the longest is the journaling/text part...I have to type it all, since my handwriting is atrocious!

ETA: It's 3 hours later and I have 12 pages all laid out. I just have to write out the text/journaling and those pages will be done. I figure that I have about 8 or 9 more pages to do...

Another ETA: It's another hour later and I did four more pages...almost. One of the pages is the one that needs the rest of the pics I need to print. I counted and I have 5 more pages to go. So, since I seem to be averaging 4 pages an hour, I should have about 1.25 hours of layouts to do, and then at least an hour for the text/journaling. Then, I just need to finish up a few souvenirs for Kimi and I'm done!!

And, I know you don't need a blow by blow report, but it is helping me to stay on task...ADD, remember? Wink

I should note that the template isn't numbered.  As long as you understand how iris folding works, I think the only thing you really need to know is to start at the tail tips and work down until you get to the spiral, then work around and in.

Thanks for the tip! I was thinking that it started at the head, but I just realized/remembered that you work from the back of the template... Wink

I didn't take to many photos either...and some of them are multiply of the same place, just in different light or pose.

Same here!  ahaha oh man, I'm so glad I'm not the only one.

I have...um...quite a few pictures.  But many of them are the different-light-or-different-angle thing, because I am not the world's greatest photographer and always take multiples of everything to compensate for blur from hand shake, or weird shadows, or what have you. Smiley

And boy am I glad to hear that other people are also not finished with their scrapbooks yet!  I've been imagining all of you done, ready to send, and simply having leisurely eleventh-hour margaritas with your Visitors poolside while you're waiting for sendout time. Wink Cheesy  (Okay, maybe not that bad.  But close.)

I had my pics printed as wallet-sized so I can fit more on a page. I'm not a scrapbooker, so I won't have any of those gorgeous, well-laid out but with only 1 picture on a page...um...pages...

And, I admit I did go a bit crazy with the pics!

And, I've gathered all of my supplies and am ready to start cutting stuff out! I have them sort of planned out in my head, but it could change a bit...

So, technically, I haven't started yet...I am a master of procrastination! But, as soon as I finish my dinner, I'll be working on it!

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! I had bookmarked your original flower tortoise post and was hoping that you would have a chance to post the pattern Smiley

It reminded me of Squirt (the baby sea turtle) from Finding Nemo and I love it!

I really like how your hid the starting and ending loops with the beads- very clever!

My sister makes her own beads, and I think that if I used a few (I have some of her earlier practice beads), for a set for myself they'd look awesome! Thank you so much for sharing how you made them Wink
