441  Re: YARN STORAGE?! Show me what you do! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by MareMare on: August 13, 2008 12:24:08 AM
I have these wire racks that are the biggest pain in the butt to put together, but they hold a lot of stuff. In the past I used them as soap drying racks, but ended up wasting a lot of space since I could just put 1 row of soap down and then there was like a vertical foot of air space wasted. Anyhow, this doesn't look particularly organized, but this is what I recently did in my crafting room that doubles/triples/quadruples as an exercise room/library/nephew play area (really, the tonka trucks and elmo tool bench--not mine) But I got the racks from costco I think. Anything you can get to lie on its side like that is great, milk carton crates would work well too! Don't forget to check the kids section when you go to the store too, sometimes they have cool kids organizational drawer type things. You can't see it here I don't think, but on the other side of the book shelf (that's all craft books lol) I have a 3 drawer rolling cart thingie with more yarn, mostly crochet thread and fun fur crud.

And here are my lovely goodies from MommyTheMaid! If you have better pics of the jewelry or the apron please post since I had trouble with those!

Wildflower Theme:

Tissue Cozy with tissue!

Really cute earrings and bracelet set, and she made them big enough to fit my wrists and be loose so they don't aggravate my contact dermititis. And I love the design of the earrings too! The flower beads are super cute, kinda translucent with a flower on the inside.And another bracelet with what looks like handpainted flower beads

A whole slew of really pretty hand made cards. They are all different, and she decorated the envelopes too!

Greece, the country, Theme:

Key hanger with Greek flag, Super clever potholders with Greek flag, and Tea Towels that say "Bon Appetit" in Greek

And! A super cute apron right off my wists! On the pocket it says "Cheers" in Greek

Palm Tree Theme:

Awesome knit palm tree washcloths! I love these, I think my mom may be trying to steal one. And a little book with a palm tree cover, full of colorful pages!

Tote bag with cute trim and palm tree painted on and adorable wristlet style bag with palm tree embroidery. I love the contrasting fabric on this! Palm tree Recipe book with some recipes inside, including Greek ones!

Alice in Wonderland Theme:

Queen of hearts corset cup cozy! Way Way too cute!

Knit Scarf and calorimetry set to look like the colors in the Cheshire cat! They are spot on, and very well made. I love this idea!

Old School Nintendo Theme:

Triforce (from Zelda, but I hope everybody can recognize the triforce when they see it) tea towels!

And and and~ The bestest for last! A pixelated Mario wall/lap quilt! I love it so!   Grin  <3  <3  <3
I was trying to explain it to my boyfriend and he knew exactly what I was talking about "You mean like old 8-bit style? Awesome!" I will just have to keep him from stealing it!

Thank you so much MommyTheMaid! I'm sad this swap is over, it feels like it's been going on forever!

I got two lovely packages yesterday! Both were bright and cheery and flower themed! It's been a crazy spring here, we usually don't get any snow all year, and we had snow in April, and way more rain than usual. Hopefully now that I have some flowers the sun will come out!

From 6iggle I got this lovely needle book! It is so cute, and I love the colors! Also she filled it with needles for me, I never seem to have any, now I can keep them all together!



She also sent a TON of super adorable buttons, zippers (I am gonna be making some pouches) and a bunch of ribbon and other trim! 

And from HannahKarina I received a wonderful painting! She spot on got colors and designs that I like, and it will look awesome in my room!

And she also sent along floral post-its, loose leaf peony tea (!), and a cute little green candle!

Thank you so much ladies, these were wonderful packages!

I'm sorry I'm just now getting around to posting this Rosanna9041 (crazy, crazy weekend)! She made me the bestest package! She claimed me for a mini scrapbook for my nephews, but sent so much more (and did a totally amazing job on the scrapbook!) And Dane and Aidan are going to totally need their goodies now, 'cause they have a new baby brother who is getting all the attention!

Really cute tote bag! The lining has all kinds of animals on it. Pirate tattoos for the boys, and transformers activity book, they are going to flip, and some note cards for me!

Little craft kit for the boys, emergency vehicles, construction stickers, and tissue holder

Stickers, mini scrap book, corners, and photo keychain

Still with me?? Ok, here's the scrapbook! (well some of my fave layouts, it has tons of pages, and is 8 x8!)

Thank you!

Woot, I got totally spoiled by craft_princess!

An awesome, antique-y treasure chest! With chocolate inside!

The coolest journal, with burned/old edges, full of quotes and pics from the movie, a Chester Copperpot wallet with library card, id, and lou gherig baseball card, and a pic of my nephews with "goonies never say die" printed on it

A great Goonies mirror, that made it here unbroken from Spain! And a bracelet with coins and green beads (my fave color!)

A treasure map note and a key!

Thank you so much!   Grin

446  Sloth from the Goonies Sock Monkey! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by MareMare on: April 28, 2008 11:20:53 PM
I made this Sloth for my partner in the Goonies swap! I had never made a sock monkey before and it was really fun. I tweaked his ears so they were more sloth-like, and purposely filled his head so it was lopsided. And I didn't give him a monkey tail, because the poor guy is already freakish. I sewed a little outfit for him and cut a piece of material (ok I tore it) for a rambo-like headband thing like he has at the end, and sewed a giant felt Baby Ruth!

If you <3 the Goonies, here's a link to the gallery for other Goonies awesomeness!

Wow, everything is so awesome! I love going to work for 10 hours and coming back to lots of awesome pics! Ok, I don't love going to work, but I love the pics. Everybody was so creative! The picture bracelet is fabulous, I am definitely wisting that, and the reversible bag, and the journals and treasure chest, and everything!

I am updating feedback tonight guys, so if your partner has received and you still don't have feedback by tomorrow, please send me a pm and I will take care of it! Also, hippiejo74, please pm me with any specific comments you might want me to leave in your group's feedback for anybody.

Here is a pic of the wallet I made craft_princess, I used the same method that I would for the wallets you make out of a paperback book cover, and just photocopied the dvd cover and back onto heavy dute scrapbooking paper before I sewed on the vinyl.

And one more of the Sloth sock monkey, I had so much fun making him!

I did another personal swap with klum78 and she made me this awesome purse in exchange for some handmade soaps!  I love it, she put in magnetic snaps to hold it closed, a zippered pocket, and another pocket and a loop to put my keychain on! It is off of a tutorial that I had linked on my wist for a long time. Thanks klum78!
