21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pixie set for a pal on: April 22, 2008 07:38:13 PM
I just completed the Fairytale swap and a friend allowed me to borrow her Good Fairy/Bad Fairy book. To repay the favor, I made her the following jewelry set with shrinky dinks (how I love shrinky dinks), fluorite beads, and fire-polished glass:

Hello, I made this necklace for my little sister's birthday. It uses a few clay beads, turquoise, german glass, etc.

Thanks for looking!
23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Decoupaged wine bottles...for a good cause...at the cost of my carpet on: May 29, 2007 10:07:23 PM
Thank god for a miscellaneous category!
I would like to proudly show off the bottles created by me and my walking team (we are doing the 3-Day 60 mile Breast Cancer Walk). We are hoping to get donations for these bottles to reach our fundraising goals of $2200 each! (I'm still new so can't post pics yet though...so follow the link if you are so inclined.)

So, it started with red wine spilled all over the table, wall, chair, and carpet...these are my friends springing into action [image blurred to protect their identity Tongue Apparently this was an important part of our process.]:

Materials while in the process:

We ended up using Tacky Glue (because there was no Elmer's to be had in my town.) I did a mix of 50/50 water and glue. I believe a fellow crafster recommended submerging the entire image into the glue so I did that, coating the back and front with good success. From experience and probably a "duh", I definitely recommend some pre-planning for I kept having these tiny gaps occur and trying to find an image for *that* space with glue ALLLL over my fingers was a big challenging. Cheesy

Here's our finish project, my two are the yogi bottles in the front:

(sorry for the glare)

Love to hear what you all think and any other suggestions you'd recommend that would be easy for a group to make to get donations for...I have a ton of magazines, fabric and a whole room of art supplies. Probably only one of us would really claim true artistic ability though. Tongue Suggestions?
