Guadiknight - I really like the totes, I like the greeny one best too.

I just finished the sea dragon cross stitch for my 4 year old son. He decorated the frame. Im sorry its a sucky photo, I was having problems with the light and Im just learning how to use a digital camera. I need to learn how to crop. My son decorated the frame, so the glass of the picture, floor, table and everything is now covered in glitter. Good job his parents are goths and dont mind the sparkles Wink

gothmummy, the fairy is a watercolor done on aluminum foil.  I wrapped the aluminum foil around some cardboard and glued to an old vcr tape box (those clear plastic ones) and then lined the inside with fabric and flat ribbon.  Voila, desktop crochet hook holder!!!

BTW, I love your little birds.  They look delicate and pretty!!

Momcuellar - Maybe I misunderstand - do you mean watercolour paints? I cant imagine them working on aluminium foil (like, baking foil that you would wrap your turkey in?) am I misunderstanding?
What an excellent idea to use old video cases though. I feel sooo guilty chucking videos out. Charity shops dont want them. We have most stuff on DVD now. I feel awful filling the earth with all that plastic but cant think of a use for them - at least now I have an idea for the cases!

Goth Mummy,
yeah, regular old watercolor like you buy your kids from crayola. I forgot to mention I outlined in black sharpie.  I found a trick on the internet that said to use a drop of dish detergent in the brush cleaning water.  It somehow makes it sticky.  The only thing I saw was, after it dried, i crinkled it and the places where I put the watercolor on thicker, flaked off.  I liked that after a while, because it reminded me of old frescos. 

I've heard of people actually crocheting with the tape.  I haven't figured how to use the plastic though.

Here are some pics of Christmas Ornaments that I have been doing in the last couple of weeks.

I had bought 8 of those clear glass ornaments that you decorate or put things inside 2 years ago.
I filled with 2 with lime green and 2 with turquoise glitter.


The other 4 are copper
I didn't have copper glitter but I did have 2 different copper pearl-ex powders
Matt-ish copper on the left, sparkling copper of the right


I have had these dragonfly wings in my stash for about 10 years.
The bodies are made from polymer clay which I have painted then covered with glitter.  They eyes are beads


5 Paper mache stars that I have had for ages painted copper. Now they are out of my craft room and will be stored with the Christmas Ornaments


More paper mache ornaments that I have had for 2 years.


I repurposed some ornaments buy painting them copper. Does that count as destashing.  The were like the one on the left except that they were red and gold.

Ok here is my first destash project, a batch of kanzashi flower headbands:


I made the flowers from fabric scraps leftover from another project, and the felt and headbands too. I posted a how-to here too Cheesy
Not too bad for a warm-up in my opinion.

I absolutely adore those glitter balls, I'd be so scared that I might break one though!!!

I love the kanzashi flowers too, really want to try it out but I'm too chicken! Cheesy
