1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cute Monster Tags on: October 17, 2016 09:28:56 PM
A few swaps ago, Glamis sent me an extra of stickers. I decided to make a bunch of tags out of them.

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Notecard SET swap on: September 18, 2016 04:20:39 PM
Usually when I run a notecard swap, I encourage participants to tailor to their partner's colours and themes, and make a bunch of different ones. But I was thinking this time about everyone making a set of eight that are identical or close (same stamp pattern different colours, same colours different layered papers, etc).

In this one, hosted by someone else:


it was a Sweat Shoppe style one, where you made your cards and took pics, and people made pick-lists. We could do it that way, or just assign partners and have it still slightly catered to your colour and theme likes. What would you rather?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nature Inspired Pendants on: September 08, 2016 08:30:54 PM
Based on a pin of a swap partner's, I made this thread covered twig necklace:

I also used many layers of nail polish and floral pebbles to make these galaxy pendants:

This is a crystal inside a rock that was found in Colorado by my friend:

And then these are less reconstructed, but they also went with the nature theme... a decopauge pendant and a polyclay pendant imprinted with a leaf from a tree in my yard.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Subversive Cards on: June 04, 2016 08:27:35 PM
The May destash challenge was to make something subversive. Without getting super preachy, I think gender norms are pretty damaging to kids, and set up unrealistic ideals for adults. I work at a daycare and thankfully all the staff agree. We strive to make sure all the kids know they can do anything, and like anything, and phrases like "boys will be boys" are NEVER said. Therefore, the first thing I thought when I saw the 'subversive' challenge was f**k gender.

6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 113 ENTRIES / Sunshine Shrine on: May 07, 2016 07:29:16 PM

I decided to make a shrine for this challenge. I ended up going to the dollar store four times, and each time a bought a bunch of things I wasn't sure if I was going to use. Here's most of my multiple receipts, one disappeared:

The challenge rules said 10 usd, or convert to your country's currency. That's 12.90 Canadian as of today, a month ago when I checked before going to the store for the first time it was 14ish. The list of things I actually ended up using:

Yellow acrylic paint- 1.25
seed beads- 2.00
bird house- 1.50
animals- 1.50
jewellry box- 2.50
flowers- 1.25
craft pack (buttons and more seed beads)- 1.25
3mm ribbon- 1.25
sheet of foam- 1.00
for a grand total of... 13.50

I started with a large 7x7 inch wooden jewelry box. I unscrewed the hinges and stashed away the top. I'm sure I'll find some use for it later. I cut up a free cardboard box from the liquor store to build my own walls, then everything got about 7 coats of the poor quality yellow paint before it was bright enough for my tastes. I had these wooden letters from Michaels, I traced them onto foam and painted them to match. This picture doesn't show the ribbon, but it circles the outside edge of the box, to cover the screw holes for the hinges. The one little cheat I did on this project was I used a few drops of my own white paint to lighten the yellow for the birdhouse and the letters.

The shrine is off to Edelc, since it worked so perfectly for the Box of Sunshine swap. I hope she likes it!

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Cassette Shirt on: April 03, 2016 04:41:07 PM
About a million years ago, I saw a post of this shirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=345518.0 I've always loved it, but it wasn't until March's destash challenge that I decided to use up a bunch of self mixed paint shades and make my own.

I tried to take the best contrast picture I could. I'm not sure if you can tell, but I've used 8 different colours. One benefit of being plus sized-- more room to do art on a shirt.

3. Bright and happy package fillers (OPTIONAL)
4. Posting to the discussion thread or PMing organizers is required once a week!

I don't know about anyone else, but where I live February is still full of snow, cold, and dark days. I sure could use another box of sunshine. Anyone up for a repeat of this swap?
