2091  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / recycled Miss Alanius Muse on: February 05, 2008 05:23:46 AM
I made a muse for the poetry swap a while back,and my daughter asked me to make her one for christmas.She decided she wanted a muse of miscellaneous thing,like the children's book Miss Alanius.
She started off as a jones soda bottle,shaped with tinfoil,covered with tissue and glue,sparkly tissue for the top layer.Scrape cotton for her head,stuffed with cotton balls(i'm out of batting),stiffened with white glue,a pencil inside to hold her head up proudly,and her body full of beans for a little weight.Beads and earrings and a yarn remnant for hair and features-her ivy clasp for the cloak is an old dangly earring.The cloak is scrape velveteen,trimmed with white bias tape in lieu of ermine,and covered with miscellaneous objects as per my daughter's request.
her front-I have to lay things on the scanner,so they're  not great pics

her back-

the one I made for the poetry swap

The poetry one is glued to the top of a tin I painted blue.I like the miscellaneous one better.Thanks for looking!

I've made a couple of these magnets.You take the rim off the top of a can of nuts-sometimes a can opener works,sometimes I just take a knife to the cardboard below the rim.The layers are-the plastic lid,fancy gift wrap,cut out picture of Inuyasha from an ad,clear plastic saved from packaging,then the metal rim.The braided cord is a handle from a gift bag.I glued an odd earring from my broken jewelry stash at the join,and an advertising magnet on the back.

And pearls-Klinger wouldn't forget those.I like using the sleeves as pockets.Nice bag!
2094  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 24 ENTRIES / Re: RAINBOWTASTIC TASK MONITOR!! on: February 04, 2008 06:31:25 PM
Well,you inspired me.I haven't made a list holder yet.But I dug out the bullitain board I thrifted last year and hung it up,unearthed the pretty pushpins I bought way back to make pins with(hee,I'm using them for their original purpose after all)and used rubber cement to glue little plastic clips around the edge.I have some facing up,some down-more room for notes,ect.Added my calendar.Voila! I kept putting off hanging the board,because I was going to decoupage it "someday".I still may,but there was no reason I couldn't use it in the meantime.Total cost-2 dollars,tops.
See what you started? Cheesy
Thanks for the inspiration!

I like this idea! I make lists constantly,and many days that's as far as I get. I've got an old canvas I can use.I could make one,and also remind DD and DH to check it also-it'd help all of us. I think I'm going to use your idea,thanks!

The dresser is beautiful!I love the blue,and I never would have thought of using dye to let the wood grain show.Gorgeous job.And you're reminding me I really need to make a needle holder for my daughter.
I really like this idea.I'd love to get an old dresser for my craft supplies.I have some in boxes and shelves in 2 closets,some boxes in the junk room,some just in tote bags....I'm going to have to do some serious cleaning and rearanging first,all over the house.But once I do,I'm going to keep my eyes open for a dresser to revamp.

My dryer lint is full of cat hair,or I'd use it.Bummer.I remember reading on here somewhere about adding a spoonfull of cornstarch to your paper mix,but I don't remember why-does anybody know?

2100  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knit breast for cancer patients from BUST magazine on: February 03, 2008 12:54:47 PM
This was in Bust magazine a month or two ago.This woman has a business knitting breasts-but she also provides the patterns for free to anyone who wants to make their own.Some quotes from the article-"Crafting is a creative outlet that allows women who are living through transitions the oppertunity to make a difference".
And part of her motivation,is to "take back the tit" from cancer and a male run health care system.
Her website is www.titbits.com,and they come in everyday,fancy,and floozy-I think you can even have them knit in soft cashmere,as well as fun colors.I don't have the article anymore;I copied this info down while reading a copy at the store.I just found where I put that scrap of paper.Hope it helps someone.
