1941  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: The magical myths and long lost legends gallery! on: October 09, 2008 07:27:14 AM
Fixed! Thanks! And my partner's mailed my stuff, woohoo! This has been a cool swap.

Thanks, Imagine! And I'm a bit slow tonight-just write is an image, and not just a link? I went to my craftster picture hosting, and copied and pasted the entire string. I don't quite understand? But then, I am a luddite. Smiley It's late, and I think I'll be signing off for the night soon.
Perhaps my brain is tired.

Hmm. I don't know why it's coming across as links, instead of photos.Sorry, guys-hate to inflict extra clicking on you! I'll try and fiddle with it again later!

Okay, my partner is having some internet issues, so she asked me to go ahead and post pics. These are crappy scanner pics, but she'll post better ones later. I think this is everything, it's all I could find pics for.So, D-Kay's goodies-
This was a lovely thick piece of blue fleece, not wide enough for a blanket, but cozy to wrap around yourself. I cut letters out of old jeans, to spell out-Atlantis water polo team-hand sewed them on with embroidery floss(with a little fabric glue for insurance), and outlined the letters in fabric paint. This is the bit I could squish on the scanner.

I had a trivit and an idea, and didn't let not being able to draw stop me. Glass paint. The once and *future* king, with the hand holding up a raygun instead of a sword.

This is a Jones soda bottle, glass paint, and I glued on a label. Prometheus brand hot sauce-stealing fire from the gods.

A yarn store/craftster fairy. Can't find a picture of the front, darn it! Wings purple skeletonized leaves, clear plastic sandwiched between for stability, scrap yarn/floss hair, that same pair of jeans for the dress, wire from a notebook and bead bracelets, blue tape and pop tab buckle belt, bead eyes.Crappily hand sewn.

Another Jones bottle. Long strip of fabric wrapped and glued, shells and beads tied on, filled with tropical bath beads.

Atlantis made me think of pearls, gold, and tropical flowers. I glued
tiny pearl beads and tiny sea shells on a brass thingy, glued it on a fabric flower, and sparkled it a bit, glued/sewed it on a necklace, added other flowers around it. I love reconstructing jewelry.

Oh, I want that leaf garland! Er, if I didn't have a cat that would destroy it, that is.
Such cool stuff!
My package to the ever patient Williarl13 apparently sat in the depot for a week, then was shipped again. Arrgh! It's not as cool as what she made for me, but I still hope FedEx gets their act together and sends it soon.
Sigh.
1946  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: i need, rather than have, something to recycle for this one... on: October 01, 2008 05:45:33 PM
Check out a book on origami and learn how to fold paper or thin cardboard into boxes. Go to the recycling craft a long, for the tutorial on making sewable plastic fabric with plastic bags and your iron. Then make little bags-either iron the edges, or sew them. I like your idea of cutting the styrofoam from produce trays into squares for earrings, ect. Clear #6 plastic, usually it's lids on take out, ect., can be used as shrinky dink material-might make fun tags? Make a box from cardboard, whatever, taped together with masking tape to hold it together, then cover with paper machie-(strips of scrap paper dipped in plain old white glue).

Oh, how about using those little clear plastic boxes tictacs come in? Or altoid tins?

1947  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Dryer Lint on: October 01, 2008 05:15:40 PM
In spring, put it out for the birds for nesting material. And I read somewhere that if you make paper, you can add dryer lint to the mix. You know, the kind where you shred scrap paper and newspaper? I've never done that, just read about it somewhere.
My daughter's girl scout troop made the fire starters one year. I think they just filled cardboard egg cartons with lint, and poured wax over the top. Know anyone with a girl scout troop?
1948  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Steampunk swap on: September 30, 2008 05:50:10 PM
The last steampunk swap was so much fun. Any one up for a round two? I can't organize, but I'd love to craft up some steampunky goodness.
1949  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Steampunk ATC swap on: September 30, 2008 05:47:16 PM
Oh, I kicked myself for missing the last one. Would love to be part of a round two!
1950  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Stuffed Animals on: September 26, 2008 10:23:40 AM
Long time ago on craftster, someone mentioned buying stuffed animals as an alternative to buying horrendously expensive faux fur for projects. But hey, I'm older than you are, and I've still got a few from my childhood up on top of my wardrobe. I could never gut them!
