2091  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Science IS Art Swap! (Sign-ups 3/24 - 4/7, Sendouts by 5/7) on: March 29, 2008 05:07:30 PM
It is a small project from "evilmadscientist", and no, it is not the LED lego guy.
I also got out some very old McCalls Needlework and Crafts mags and found some amusing projects themed on atoms and space travel.
Can't wait to get my partner assigned!

I'm so jealous of your old mags with space/atom projects!  May I pick your brain after the swap? And I'd forgotten about "evilmadscientist"-I think I'm going to have to visit for inspiration. The instructables site is also fun for that. But then I have to worry about spending too much time online, and not enough crafting!

 

2092  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Fairytales, Fairies & Folklore swap,sign ups 16th Feb-8th March, send 12th A on: March 29, 2008 04:57:06 PM
I'm so glad we've got until the 12th! My large is giving me fits. Hopefully I can craft like mad this monday. "barking mad"-I love that phrase. It describes my mom and her 2 sisters to a t!( BTW, Sulkycat, glad you had such a nice visit. )I think I'll be barking mad before I finish crafting!
I made a ------- for the first time, and I'm a little nervous about it. Also made my second attempt at a -------, and I love it, even if it is a little rough around the edges, so to speak. And I've been putting off attaching the ----- to the ------. Sorry, don't know if elywnceltic's reading this thread or not!  Grin
This is such a great group, and kudos to our lovely organizer. I certainly hope to craft with her and the rest of this group again sometime. Or, to use a colloquialism, "y'all come back now,y'here?"
(and,yes, we do say y'all in these here parts)

WOW! The bar has been set high! That's an amazing swap package.
2094  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Western Swap (kitchy yet fun!) on: March 28, 2008 08:13:12 PM
I know what you mean-I'm so excited too! I keep coming up with ideas, and scribbling them down on scraps of paper. Hopefully to be found when I need them...
I don't make stuff until I've had a chance to stalk my pardner, unless it's something I'd like to keep myself. I learned my lesson the hard way-the one time I jumped the gun & made a pendant I knew my partner would love? I ended up remaking it into a magnet beacuse my partner had metal allergies. Oops!
Here's a good cowgirl book for y'all-unfortunately out of print. "Dear Calamity-Love Belle"-by Calamity Wronsky & Belle Bendall. Funny,serious cowgirl wit and wisdom.Philosophy, a couple of recipes, and even cowgirl kareoke. Anybody who hunts ebay,abebooks,or addall.com might want to take a gander.
2095  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: About 50 Jones Bottle Caps on: March 28, 2008 07:49:25 PM
Something I saw in a book that looks good, if you have a few bottles. You pour some bright paint inside the bottle, I remember it laid on it's side, and was turned periodicly, so it was evenly coated. They showed it holding fake flowers as a vase, but maybe if the paint wasn't water soluble, it could work for real flowers? Keep the labels, use colors that fit the flavors, have a row of rainbow colors.
I'd love to have a bottle tree, but we get too many storms. I'd constantly be picking up broken glass(but bottle trees look so cool!).
2096  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Resin-a-licious, PIC-NORMOUS first post, FINALLY on: March 28, 2008 07:43:40 PM
It's all very nifty! I especially like the stars with the mesh paper. If we ever get nice weather-and nice weather that happens on a day off, to boot-I'm going to make resin stuff. Tiny house, no good venilation,need to work outdoors. I've been saving plastic packaging that has interesting shapes, just to experiment with. But I need to get some real molds still. The more I see here, the more I want to play too! I didn't know there were molds to make light switch plates. Yours look so cool I think that gets added to my long list of things to try.

I keep getting ideas of stuff to make, but I'm holding off. Ever since for one swap I jumped the gun and made a pendant I knew my partner would love-then had to convert it from jewelry into a magnet because she had metal allergies Embarrassed.
I've always wanted to go see the parthanon, ever since studying it in 5th grade. Maybe that's when I first thought how cool it'd be to dig up old ruins. One of my friends was studying archaeology, and she has to take latin.I guess it would be helpful to be able to read what's on the shards one digs up-obvious when you think about it, but it honestly never occured to me before!
Trivia for you-the new Indiana Jones movie? Harrison Ford is older now than Sean Connery was, when S.C. played indy's dad!
2098  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Western Swap (kitchy yet fun!) on: March 27, 2008 07:49:51 PM
sounds fun, but perhaps a question on the questionnaire relating to who wants serious/classic western stuff and who wants cutsey/kitchy stuff?

Good idea!
Me, I'd be happy with either. The more retro the better! I love detailed questionaires-well,not filling them out so much, but I like to know as much as possible about what my partner (pardner?) likes and dislikes. I remember a toy ranch phone we had when we were little-wonder if mom still has it in the basement, or if it's been snagged by an older sibling.Hmmm...

The lace trim is a nice touch. All the goodies look lovely!
2100  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: William Shakespeare Swap Gallery on: March 25, 2008 05:32:38 PM
I spent a lot of time on it, and loved every minute. I couldn't quite bring myself to use a real book, but the blank one worked okay. I put bronze paint over the black cover, and used crumpled plastic wrap to daub all over. And I cut a ton of pages out to make room for the added thickness, and I should have cut out more.
I'm going to make another one sometime. I've accumulated enough paper scraps to fill a couple of small zippered plastic blanket bags! I hope you try one yourself-it's addictive!

"However, I must cringe at the West Side Story/R+J book!  That's the same one we had to read in 9th grade!  Sad"
I know what you mean-it was 10th grade Macbeth for me-that class ruined shakespeare for me for years! But I found the double book at Half Price Books, and it was quirky enough I had to pick it up. Did the teacher make you compare the two?
