Question-where do the rest of you find gears? Aside from taking apart watches and clocks.I perused the hardware ailse and found zip.
I did have a thought tonight-spirograph! It's full of little plastic gears.I can't take my daughter's set away from her,but I could "borrow" a few to trace,or ink and stamp.Worth a try...

Aredroulettekiss,yes I do love our city! BTW,you have a very cool username.
And I love that apron! I'd be afraid to wear it,too.(looks at the soup freshly spilled on her shirt).Maybe a practical,washable version,with detachable cog decoration,hmmm...with lots of pockets for craft supplies and tools.Hey,I can dream,can't I?

Hee,I wasn't as excited counting down from 2007 to 2008 as I am counting down for this swap!

I was lamenting the fact that I am as old as my best work buddy's mom-buddy is a mewling infant of 25,and I hit 47 a few months ago-and the DH comes up with,"No,you're as YOUNG as her mom."
I just may have to craft something for the boy. Grin

I am lurk lurk lurking in your swap again....i'm pretty much in love with whoever's idea it was to have this swap....I can't wait to see what you all create....and bookstorebabe, I love your username  Cheesy
Don't just lurk-come on in,the water's fine! Of course,I'm a fine one to talk.I'm lurking with the over30/geezer/fine wine swap.But I know this swap's going to take all my spare time!With this many steampunk fans,I bet there will be a round two.
Thanks for the compliment-the name kind of came to me in a flash when I joined here.We're in the same town-you may even shop at my store!

Ooh,I can't wait for partners!I'm holding off making anything until I can do some stalking.Ever since the time I couldn't wait,and made a really cool pendant,only to find out my partner had metal allergies Embarrassed(I turned it into a magnet,instead)

Hmm,I wonder,steampunk detective,anyone? Er,I mean,private inquiry agent,of course.Magazines of that period were full of serials,were they not? I can see it now-Dr.Gideon P. Livesey,Esq.,and the Dirigible of Doom!
I may have to write that...

You could still do a table setting for an impressive big ticket item.Make plates,but make them charger plates.Chargers are meant to hold clear glass plates that the food itself goes on.And make the napkin rings.Shop the remnant bins at a fabric or upholstery shop for fabric to make a tablecloth and napkins-or just find a plain tablecloth to set them on,and just make the cloth napkins.Make coordinating candleholders-you can find candles to put in them cheaply.That's not several small things-they are all part of one big ticket item!
Hunt up posts by the fabulous sweetsforever;check out her stained glass look Van Gogh made with melted beads.She is the queen of melty goodness.
Make a patchwork quilt type wall hanging.It doesn't have to be very large.Make the center piece  a photo transfer onto cloth of a family,but just pinned on.Add a card stating that the winner bidder will have made for them a photo image of their own family,with will then be sewn onto the quilt.

If you really wanted a grass look,I'd go for indoor/outdoor carpeting,or astroturf!You could paint your floor and seal it,maybe a bathmat in the same color?
How about something like the head of a chinese dragon-I think a water dragon is called a Lung dragon?-over/around your shower head,or faucett,so it looks like the water is flowing from its mouth.If your mirror is on the wall designated for water,paint a few tiny ripples,and maybe a tiny leaping fish onto it in one corner.If it's on the earth wall,flowers or leaves around it.
I could see using 4 different dragons for the four elements.On your earth wall-hanging planters with vines.Plants like the extra humidity,just find one that can tolerate low light.Maybe phothos or ivy? If you only have room for one or two pots,go with a vine that can trail/be pinned all over the wall eventually.You could mosaic their pots to go with your wall.Candle sconces on your fire wall? If you're worried about burning actual candles,use led light candles.Mosaic holders/little shelves onto your walls.You could do the ceiling as sky and the floor as earth,if you want to use two walls each for fire and water to make a bigger impact.Put glow in the dark stars on the sky,or use glow in the dark paint.Have the sky shade from day to night.Three dimensional clouds.Birds in flight.What is your bathroom sink like-a pedestal sink,part of a vanity,or just the sink attached to the wall? Could you decorate the support like a tree trunk/stump,and then the sink itself would be a pool supported by it?If,for example,you use tiny red tiles for fire,and tiny blue tiles for water,on ajoining walls-have them scattered into each other at the corner,instead of a strict demarcation.

Yes,I know I'm getting carried away. Grin
