11  Anime Cuppie Necklaces. in Get Product and Website Opinions by jadegreen on: April 23, 2008 11:56:04 PM
Ok so this is my first crack at shrinky dinks and I think they turned out pretty well. I turned a few doodles I did a month or so ago into these cute little necklaces. Yay!

Action Shot! (ignore the Lego necklace, that thing is permanently around my neck because it is tied there haha)

I have recently discovered Etsy and since I have had a baby and am staying at home for the first few years I want to find something to help pay the bills a little. I HATE not being able to contribute. If I practiced and got better at these do you think these sort of designs would sell? How much do you think people would pay for them? Haha sorry to sound like a money whore! I really do craft for the love of it!! Promise! Smiley

Wow I didn't even know this thread was on here. I posted this as it's own topic but after spending hours upon hours looking at everybody else's beautiful photography I thought I might post it here as well. It's nothing special and not as good as most of the photos here but I love it.

My little monkey. He has the most amazing blue eyes.

After photoshop.

I know it's pretty easy to do the whole black and white except for the eyes thing but I still think it looks amazing.

13  Baby Boy Blue in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jadegreen on: April 06, 2008 07:26:35 PM
Nothing amazing. Just a photo I took of my little monkey that I completely fell in love and altered with some basic photoshop techniques.

And the original.

14  Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes w/- Whipped Ganache Frosting in Dessert by jadegreen on: March 23, 2008 04:35:07 PM
They are exactly as they sound. I love Cadbury Creme eggs and cupcakes have kind of become an obsession lately so I knew what had to be done this Easter.

If you want the recipe you can find it here.

15  Best Vegetarian Lasagna EVER! in Vegetarian / Vegan by jadegreen on: March 18, 2008 07:38:43 PM
Nope, I don't care what you say. Nothing can top this one. It's amazing!

The recipe can be found on my blog. Here is the post.


I know it takes awhile to prepare but it is totally worth it. Every single person I have made this for, vegetarian or not, has raved about it. Let me know if you do decide to give it a try and tell me what you think!

16  Carrot, Coconut & Chai Cupcakes w/- Cream Cheese Frosting in Dessert by jadegreen on: March 17, 2008 09:28:22 PM
I've been making cupcakes a lot lately and these turned out soooooo good. I would love for somebody else to try them and let me know what they think as they were my first attempt at modifying a recipe to my own taste.

I posted the full recipe on my blog. Here is the post.

18  Lego Necklace yay!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jadegreen on: February 24, 2008 03:30:36 PM
OK so I realise this isn't exactly an original idea as there is plenty of Lego jewellery recons on here but I though I would share anyway. I had a few extra pieces left over from my Lego Viking Ship (which I am in love with by the way) so though I may as well put them to good use.

I put a hole through one of the pieces, put a metal ring through it then just used some red anchor thread for the actual necklace. Unfortunately I found I am allergic to the clasp I used to hold it together so I'm going to have to rethink that because I have a wonderful rash on the back of my neck now haha.

The best thing is that all the other pieces can be interchanged around so you can have a new necklace everyday! Fun Fun.

And now because I am a camera whore, an action shot.

I realise that because of my tattoo it all looks a little busy on my chest but I still love it. And yes my earing is a Lego sword. Ah so many uses.
Comments/Criticism welcome.

19  Random sketches. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jadegreen on: January 17, 2008 08:22:39 PM
Hopefully one day I will be non-lazy enough to fix up any imperfections going on in these (like lining up mr aliens neck with his body) and turn them into proper acrylic on canvas paintings. These are pretty much just ideas in the making at this point.

Mr aliens welcome home party.

20  Baby beanie. in Knitting: Completed Projects by jadegreen on: January 17, 2008 08:12:29 PM
This is ever so lame compared to what all you amazing knitters manage to make on here but I thought I would post it in case there are some really super duper amateur knitters out there like me that can only knit a square/rectangle and feel like giving something apart from a scarf a go. haha.

So pretty much you just knit a big rectangle the size of a beanie doubled over and also enough for the little bits that fold up around the edge if you want that look. Then you just sew it together with a big "wool pin"?? or whatever they are called. Then tie knots over the corners so that you get the little ears and the "round" shape of the beanie. Then if you like sew through the little bits of wool to make the "tassle" like things and sew a little pattern on the front if you like.

I made one kind of like this for myself ages ago. No idea where it went though haha.
