1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / altered book as a gift?? on: July 06, 2010 09:41:52 AM
my SO's son is 17 and quite artistic. he plays music and he's into film.

from what i've gotten to know about him, he likes things that are "artsy" (for lack of a better term). i thought an altered book would be a great gift for him. i'd love for it to be almost blank.... kind of along the lines of i'll get the idea rolling that it's to be an altered book by him.

does this sound like a good idea?
if so, how would you suggest i get it "started"?

thanks in advance for any and all info/comments
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Buy Nothing Swap Round 3!!! on: December 31, 2008 07:44:23 AM
i've been away from swapping (and posting, for that matter) for some time. i think this is the swap that will bring me back.

what are the sizes/points that we're looking to craft?

i already have something i'd really love to receive... and it's TOTALLY a recycle craft that i just don't know how to make myself Smiley
yes, i'm a little greedy  Wink

that is sooooooooo cute you NEED to have one too! where did you get the idea for yours?


it actually, was inspired by the same frame. the person i was angelling for had it on her wish list. i just made a much smaller one

i didn't have a paper punch. i cut mine out by hand. yes, i was too broke to buy the punch. i think i'll break down and buy the punch for when i make one for myself

i had an october wedding.

centerpieces without flowers: wheat. martha stewart has a beautiful idea that i copied for my wedding... best bet: google image "wheat centerpieces" there are a few lovely ideas. the first picture is the one by martha stewart. martha stewart also has a nice fall leaf "floral" arrangement. brings in the lovely colors of the season.

as far as working with your budget: read my signature  Wink

let me know if there are any other fall wedding ideas i might be able to toss your way... fyi: i worked with a small budget also

i wonder if we'll be able to add to our myths/legends list in our questionnaire. i was quick on the draw and sent my questionnaire, but the more i think about it... the more i'd like to add to my list to be able to give my partner more options... since my list is very limited.

LOVE how BSB pointed out that many of us are "goddesses"  in the crafster world!!!!!!!

i'd love to craft another one, but don't know if i have it in me to raise another one.

maybe i can rent out my "oven" for someone who can't craft their own.
