121  Re: Stuff an Easter Basket Swap in The Swap Gallery by CohesiveChaos on: April 02, 2008 08:50:46 PM
Ammasmama asked if I could post photos so here are a few that I took of the package I sent her.  (Still don't know if the hat and dress fit but if they don't I'll make others to replace them )

Not the best photos but I wanted to send sunglasses because I remember my daughter LOVED glasses at that age.  Thank you all for arranging a fun swap!

122  Re: The Long Awaited Poppet-Along in Craftalongs by CohesiveChaos on: March 31, 2008 01:46:39 AM
So I've not really been taking part in the poppet along but did make a poppet this evening getting ready to make one for a personal swap so I thought I'd show her off, it's my first attempt and she still needs her hand detailing and some facial work too.  The hair isn't attached, there are 2 pictures (one with flash and one without) her actual color is somewhere between the two (ignore my 'beautiful' work surface I don't there is a craft that the table hasn't come in contact with lol).  I had tried one other, but my dog decided her arms were chew toys, and snatched them and ran.

123  Skull/Camo Laptop bag for my Husband in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: March 27, 2008 11:23:42 PM
So once or twice a year I make something for my husband.  and this is the most recent project I completed for him - a unique bag for his laptop. 

I took into consideration all his different accessories that he has, and did my best to make him a bag that can accomidate his computer, camera, palm pilot, MP3 player, USB cords, SD cards, thumb drives, cell phone, wallet, etc...  So here it is all finished.  Hope you'll enjoy seeing it Smiley So there are lots of pockets, and even pockets inside pockets. 

The Front of the Bag:

The back of the bag:

Another front view that does show the pocket gusseting (there are 5 pockets like this 1 more on each side):

And an interior shot of one of the pockets that has organizer pockets within it.

So easter came and it was rainy and nasty here.  literally downpoured for the majority of the day.  Welcome spring! Cheesy

Yeah! I need to show the great package that ammasmama put together for my little angel.  Ok so my angel isn't as little as some of your's lol  but even at 11 she is one of the most amazing little girls I've ever had the honor of being around and I'm truly blessed she is my daughter.

First is this great set of magnets (with action shot though my son is quite sure any magnet that goes on the fridge is his and complete and total 'fair game'  Ignore the message board lol it just looked cute to put the magnets around the corner.

Then we have a fun set of jewelry and an action shot or two of her wearing them

And this is likely the coolest thing I've ever seen and as a result i keep trying to steal it from my child (bad mom!)  But she now wants me to paint her room and let her redecorate it so that it works with the 'theme' of this blanket (she's a big happy bunny & skull fan and thinks the bunny reminds her of happy bunny.  I see a mural in my future)

I also have photos of the things I sent for lil miss Amma, this swap was likely the hardest I've ever done I seem to have forgotten how to craft for wee ones so I'm rusty, but my youngest sister is pregnant with Twins (and their girls!!!! My first neices!)  so I need to get on the ball and figure it out.  Thank you Jen my daughter is totally stoked with all her fun goodies

125  tiny crochet spider in Crochet: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: March 14, 2008 04:00:08 AM
I was bored this evening so played a bit with crocheting, this little guy is somewhat inspired by a beaded spider I received from JessVict in a swap I think I need to find my black thread to do another. 

I'm not really a crocheter but am having fun with crochet anyway Smiley I took one photo with the flash and one without and the 20oz coke cap is included for scale

Yeah! Hubby quit whining long enough for me to get photos (ok he was sleeping)  But I have to share photos of the package that came on saturday from JessVict my fantastic partner Smiley  I tried really hard to get good photos so without further adeu and in no particular order lol

Photos (can you see how cute Jess is!)  and that awesome pic of a stingray is going on the wall in my office for sure

beautiful bracelet, I wish you could see the leaves better, it came apart at one of the jumprings, but I've fixed it since I took the photo

I think I messed this up getting it out of the box but it's cool!

shells and rocks from Lake Eerie (I collected rocks as a little girl so this really appealed to the little girl in my heart)

This amazing little beaded spider, she's so going somewhere that my husband has to see her frequently (he hates spiders and I like to make him shiver lol)

We both love Asian things, and this gong will come in SO HANDY when they are playing rockband in my livingroom (they being my family, the older crowd may get that reference lol, my daughter however didn't)

Postcards (We're both coke drinkers and the raccoon is actually a photo which is so cool!) I collect post cards so I love them all

stationery things

more stationery things (see the awesome soldier stickers)

Skulls are one of my most favorite things on earth and have been even since before they were popular lol, and she made this fantastic cloth the green is a great compliment to my favorite shade of green paint

And a wire photoframe with red, clear and black baubles.  Red and black are the colors of my livingroom so this will definitely find a spot on the shelf in here

There was also some trim she sent, she obsessively collects trims and fabrics much like myself but my son grabbed it and ran and tied up some of his sisters stuffed animals lol.  So I didn't want to show stuffie torture Wink  And I forgot she also sent a gardening magazine I may have to steal a few ideas out of it for my yard

Thank you Jess Cheesy

127  Re: How do I turn this into a craft room? (A little pic heavy) in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by CohesiveChaos on: February 23, 2008 05:13:52 PM
Ok so here are my thoughts on this:

The first thing i'd do is make a home depot run and grab a piece of the 4'x8' melamine and roll of the edging (about $35 total) and I'd have them make cuts for me (first cut is always free some home depots charge like 50c for each additional cut)  I would measure out a few areas that I want good sized work surfaces in (like one for the jewelry making, one for sewing, and one for cutting sewing projects) If there was space I'd cut the board so that I had 4 2' x 4' pieces to use for worksurfaces. 

After hitting there, I'd go over to the scrap wood bins in home depot, I find monday's are the best time to hit these (as the DIY home improment gurus have left lots of scrap pieces over the weekend)  You can usually find 2x4's and such for a buck or two for a good sized piece (that can be used to make braces etc.. for the work surfaces.

Under the stairs I'd set up a work surface on the tallest end for cutting fabrics etc...

I would hit Craig's list and the cheap lumber bins to get all the supplies I needed Smiley

I did a little playing with your photos lol  Here is how I'd set it up if it were mine Wink

128  just one picture of my little doodle bunny in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: February 22, 2008 10:10:03 PM
I doodled a pattern earlier for this little guy on some scrap paper pieces, he's really floppy and cute I think lol.  I was tickled that he went together as well as he did.  I love bunnies with floppy long ears and love rag dolls with long floppy legs so I thought I'd combine the two lol  I should add that's he is a small bunny from the top of his head to the bottom of his butt he's just over 4.25" tall

129  a 1/4 scale apartment livingroom in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by CohesiveChaos on: February 16, 2008 10:49:21 PM
ok so years ago I wanted a doll house for my dolls.  Yes I am an adult, and I thought they should have an adult house too so I worked a very long time (don't really want to think how long it took me but we'll get to that, lol) 

Shortly after I completed my apartment/livingroom for them we moved 2000 miles across the country, and the movers destroyed my grown up doll house.  The dolls that 'lived here' are around 16 inches tall (roughly 42cm for the rest of the world) 

I didn't even think we had photos of my project anymore but I was looking for photos on my husband's old computer and found these photos buried in there.  I saw others in there too but didn't get them all moved to my thumb drive, hoping I can find the others again. 

I made the 'room' itsself, the shelves, all the contents of the shelves (minus the rabbit) I made the sofa & chaise, and the magazines, the curtains, etc... Anyway it's something i was very proud of even if it died too soon lol.  If I find the other photos I'll post a few of those too Smiley

130  Girly Nintendo DS lite carry case slightly image fat in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CohesiveChaos on: February 12, 2008 12:58:02 PM
So after a few weeks of my daughter carrying her other case I made her, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=223235.msg2411843#msg2411843 she determined she had complaints, so this weekend I took time to do a complete re-design.  She'll be getting one of these babies for her valentine's day gift from me.  She's seen it, and has no clue she's getting one, and has been walking around pouting that she 'took the first one'  LOL 

So in the new design I completely removed the zipper and changed the overall style of the bag, giving it a shoulder strap so she doesn't have to grip to carry it, and added an exterior pocket for carrying a notebook (or a lipgloss or wallet)  And there are fold down flaps for storing extra games (total of 12, 8 DS type games & 4 advance games)

I love this design even more than the last and am now saving to get myself a DS (I'm dying for a little red one lol!)
