21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pride bracelet on: January 29, 2013 09:43:35 PM
So I originally made this for the I Made A Thing challenge on dreamwidth, in which you show off your fandom in a way that's not art, fic, or podficcing. I picked bandom, and more specifically, a lyric from a Fall Out Boy song. I was going to just keep it there, but on a different thread here I saw someone use the phrase 'that's gay', and so now I'm being passive aggressive by uploading this. I plan to wear it to my next few big family events, as I've worn my knitted gay pride bracelets to them for years now, and they're getting boring.

This is the finished product:


The top half is what it looked like when I was finished stamping it. The bottom half is my first attempt at dyeing it. I made it too dark. Thankfully it's a waterbased dye, so I just got the leather wet and dabbed at it with a paper towel, and some of the colour leeched off.

Details of swap:
A tiny thing is anything that fits into the dimension 4" by 4" by 4". In this swap you'll be making three tiny things based on events or characters of The Avengers. A Fury eye patch, a miniature Captain America shield, a Chituari stuffie- if it fits into 4x4x4 it works for this swap.

Please keep your requests to those that had facetime in the Avengers film, not the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, whether it's past or upcoming films. IE: a Pepper Potts necklace is good, an Antman coffee cozy or a Betty Ross hoopla or Fandral etched mirror doesn't work.

23  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tiny Avengers Swap on: January 14, 2013 09:10:00 PM
I'm interested in running a tiny thing swap with an Avengers theme. I was thinking three things. I was also thinking about doing it ASAP, as I'd like to have things settled well before Ironman 3 comes out. I know that's not until May, but the last swap I ran had flakers which made everything drag on three months. So the sooner the better, in my book.

What I'm not sure of is how much crafting time/sign up time to allot. How much crafting time would you want to make three small but totally excellent things?

25  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dinosaur magnets on: December 15, 2012 03:00:27 AM
An online friend of mine runs communal posts for the thirty days of NaNoWriMo. I really appreciate the rallying posts, and how everyone comments to everyone else. It makes nice touchpoint for a stressful month.

She is really into dinosaurs. She's actually writing a book to be published about them, and she has a lot of the large plastic ones around her house where "normal people" would have vases. Plus, each of her daily posts have a dinosaur pic or comic to go with. So when she put up her address for the holiday card exchange a lot of my LJ friends do, I thought I'd give her something a bit bigger and better, as a thanks for being awesome.





And a bonus necklace. Because pterodactyls are awesome, but I had no way of mounting it to a scrabble tile.

26  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Card and envelope template swap on: November 28, 2012 02:14:44 PM
I was thinking just a standard notecard swap, something like 8 or 10 cards to maybe two or three partners. The kicker would be everyone downloading the same envelope template and making their own envelopes from something not just plain white printer paper. Magazines or newspaper or scrapbook paper, etc. I always love swaps where everyone starts off with the same thing (in this case the template) and the swap gallery is full of a dozen completely different things.

28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shades of Pink necklace on: November 21, 2012 12:01:12 AM
I started off with a hideous 1980's wooden necklace. It was cream, pink, and aqua, all slightly different shades. The beads were geometric shape jumbled together with no pattern. I took it apart and weaved some of the circles together with copper chain. The orange goes really well against the shades of the beads.

Details of swap:
This swap is not a partner swap. There will be two groups of six, so every swapper mails to five people. Swappers will be making either 1 or 2 pendants for each member of their group, which will be assigned basically at random.  

The pendants can be made from any medium: leather, resin, cloth, beads, clay, bottle caps, rocks, glass, scrabble tiles, etc. Just make them awesome! If you sign up for two pendants, make sure you dont send the EXACT same thing. Ex. They can both be scrabble tile pendants, just a different image on each. You don't need to make a fully beaded necklace, this is a pendant swap, but please attach the pendant to a chain or cord or whatever goes around your recipient's neck.

Once the swap is closed I will send out addresses to all participants in your group. But you can start crafting now.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What are your FAVORITE colors?
What is your LEAST favorite color?
Describe your style in 3 words or less(funky, girly, steampunk, etc.):
Any allergies/concerns?
Do you have a wist/pintrest and if so, link please?
Do you want to swap one or two pendants? (two will only occur if at least six swappers want to send two)

Please understand these questions are only a guide. You may not receive your exact favorite color, but hopefully it wont be your least favorite either. I really want this to be flake free, so only commit if you are truly willing to send to the amount of people you sign up for. But if you want to tailor the pendant specifically to each member by stalking posts, wists, etc., that is ok too.
