3901  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: A Surprise in Every Monkey! on: April 28, 2008 05:23:43 PM
Thanks!  She just arrived home received it on Sunday morning, but currently has a few semi-eviscerated carcasses she's working on, so it may be even longer before she spills Dr. Zayas's (as he's been named) guts.

Thanks crafty_dame!  It seems I'm not alone and I should've known.   Wink

Kalessi - thanks!  Maybe I'll finally dig into all the paper ephemera I've been collecting lately just to get a start on learning to collage and use ATCs as my excuse/motivation.
3903  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Chandelier Mirror on: April 28, 2008 11:12:02 AM
That is AWESOME!  I'm very inspired by this - not realizing that mirrored plastic was an option for crafting, my mind is going crazy.  You're very good with a scroll saw!

Golly, thanks teeisme!  Oh, I'm not counting it out, but I'll need a "reason", you know.  So many projects in the meantime.

Rockstarmom:  Thanks!  Yeah, it's not really my style and it kind of scares me a little bit, but I'm pleased with it.  I totally have never stalked you or anything.  Wouldn't be ladylike... or, uh, something. 

Acidtrix:  Thanks!  I'm not usually one to seek out a bunch of affirmation for my creations (usually just a little  Wink ), but for some reason with this it's helping me cross the hurdle.
3906  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Secret: Embroidery with METALIC thread, wanna know? on: April 28, 2008 10:26:27 AM
Thanks for the needle advice!  I tried it once and my biggest trouble was it shredding my fabric (muslin).  I felt like I was embroidering with razor wire.  However, a fat needle makes sense to help avoid that, as well as longer stitches - mine were very close together.

Looks like you have a good start!  I'm not sure I'll go any further with ATCs, but I'm relieved that I gave it a try and that I'm not ashamed of it.  Weird what trips up one's creativity, but not another's. 
3908  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: $4.99 thrifted chair remake on: April 28, 2008 09:16:11 AM
You have great vision!  I really like the way the chrome feet pop off the white.  I agree that primer is such a worthwhile step and usually not "extra" because it saves so much hassle later.

mamaedgar: Isn't it weird how nervous-ing it is?  I think the "More Art, Less Craft" category here makes it intimidating, too.  I'm going to go look for you, now!

Alteredmommy: Thanks!  That's what I picked up, but I was nervous I was missing something.  I'm assuming you can give them w/o receiving in return, too, no?  I think the embroidery saved me - because collage intimidates me.
3910  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: A Jar of Mini Whimsies Swap (CLOSED send-outs 4/23) on: April 28, 2008 08:46:30 AM
So I made my first ATC for a handcrafted item for gossamer_gull's and I'm really nervous about the post, because it's a project with "Rules"!  Eesh.  So, I finally posted it here.  Constructive criticism is welcome - just please tread gently.   Smiley
