261  carved owl in Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: March 23, 2008 07:02:38 AM
I also carved this owl for a swap.  You can't really see it, but inside its rib cage is another owl.

The carving was done before the holes were drilled.

262  parrot that flies in Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: March 23, 2008 06:59:04 AM
We don't have a board for woodworking yet, so I'll post here.

I made this parrot for a recent swap.  Its wings flap up and down in the breeze and it is on a swivel, so it turns as well.

It has a wingspan of 18 inches.

263  Reader's Digest Craft & Hobbies - Book Review in Vintage Craft Projects by pinokeeo on: March 21, 2008 05:57:47 PM
This is the coolest book.  It has instructions for just about every traditional craft or art medium there is.

It is dated 1979 and it is by Reader's Digest.  I swear it is like a bible for crafters.

Pics, as promised.  Warning, image obese.

I have been totally and completely spoiled. I love blues of every shade.

When I opened the package, this is what I saw.

Then I started pulling things out of totes.  This is what it looks like now.

Individual items:
The card that explains everything.  I'm going to frame this one.

This is an envelope to hold a folded shopping bag.  It's lined and the shopping bag, which is hand painted, will hold a room full of stuff.
The envelope:

The shopping bag:

together, so you can see the relationship:

Next, a magician's bag.  I spend a lot of time with other people's children, so this is going to be fun.

Another tote, about the size of a regular shopping bag:

A paper art quilt.  I have made a picture frame that is about the right size for this.  I think this is magnificent.

A tea wallet.  I requested this item.  I took a very close picture of the closure.  It is a dragon that is only three quarters of an inch.

A handbound journal made with some awesome reconned papers.  I also took a photo of the inside front cover.  I love this.

A couple of handmade cards.  They are sewn paper.

A button pin, and some blue beads.

I had the most awesome swap partner. 

Thanks Athenamat, I love everything.

I made this nightlight out of a glass float, a cardboard tube, a piece of rope and a leftover Christmas light fixture.

 and this is how it looks lit

The whole thing is about six inches high.

266  wooden crochet hooks in Crochet: Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: February 15, 2008 12:21:34 PM
I made these hooks recently for a swap.  They are hand carved.  And I am told they work very well.

What do you think?

267  cribbage board in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: February 14, 2008 10:38:01 AM
I made this cribbage board from a scrap piece of cherry for a woman in Texas. 

The spots on the board are branded on with a small branding iron that I got for my woodburner.

Ok, here's my package.  Warning, pic heavy.  I was royally spoiled.

First, everything in the box

A paper gift bag

chocolate sayings-my favorite-All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt-by Charles Schultz

a mirror decorated with some really awesome beadwork

two pairs of polymer clay earrings that I just love...

a closeup of the earrings

...and on the flip side of the card, a half eaten polymer clay bonbon

a canvas bag that immediately got filled up with my origami crafts supplies

a little surprise package wrapped it fabric


closeup of the polymer clay doughnuts, that will be going into my miniature victorian farm house that I am building

two small tins full of chocolate

...and the rest of the chocolate

Thank you mizz.blondes for a wonderful package.  You must be the queen of polymer clay.  I am just now trying to learn how to use this stuff, mainly for my dollhouse.

I am posting what I sent for mizz_blondes, since her camera is on the fritz.

First item is a small journal reconned from a Candyland game board.

Next, a woodburned panel, with a Chinese symbol for chocolate on it.

A chocolate leather purse with pink and white lace, because she likes girly things.

Details of the purse:  A two-strand braided rattail strap.

Closeup of lace trim.

A tin box with a simple picture on the top...

...and inside...

Legos!!  Homemade, of course.  I had fun making these.  The white ones are Ghiradelli white, her favorite, and the dark chocolate is Wilton's cocoa.

And lastly, the rest of the chocolate.

She likes white chocolate, so I got her Lindt white chocolate.  Also, Hershey's mint chocolate sticks and Hershey's New York cheesecake truffle kisses.

Hope you like everything, mizz_blondes.
