1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Puzzle bracelets!! on: April 04, 2009 06:10:16 AM
Not long ago someone posted a puzzle bracelet that they've made (Please PM me and I will give you credit!!).  On a recent swap my partner said she loved it...so I gave it a go and now I'm hooked! 

This one was for the House Swap...photos of the main people with medical terms also...used Mod Podge to adhere to pieces.

another one I've done:

I colored the back of the pieces to match the flower pictures on the front and put seed beeds on the jump rings for more color.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Alice in Wonderland note board! on: April 04, 2009 06:06:24 AM
Hello!  This was for a swap, and thankfully she loved it Smiley  Her favorite quote was from the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland...  "Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!"  Sooo, I made a write on board so she can fill in her own six things.  Used a sharpie to draw on the queen and quote.   

**I wasn't sure where to put this, so move it to misc. if it should be there instead!
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Do Unto Others embroidery on: April 04, 2009 06:02:46 AM
My partner received and I am excited about how this came out...making one for myself but haven't decided on what quote to use:

I used seed beeds at the end of the branches so I took the glass out of the frame.  The borders are done with some quilt fabric scraps I had. 

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Garden Markers made from wood shims on: May 11, 2008 05:33:30 PM
Sooo, I have been looking for ages to make permanent garden markers that are bigger than what you would normally find.  Walking thru Loew's I saw these and knew these were it!  They are wood shims that you would use to square up a door or window,etc.  They are fatter on the top and skinner in the bottom - easier to pound into the ground lol.  I woodburned the names on and still need to polyurethane them, but I was super excited with how they came out.  I've only burned myself twice Smiley

This is what I have done so far...

Close up of the bumpy woodburning, I'm new at it and I like the rustic simple look of it anyway Smiley

thanks for looking!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / car visor... thank you Loobylashes! on: April 24, 2008 08:48:25 AM
I followed a tute Loobylashes did in I think 2005... I love it!

I've had this chicken fabric for ages, but not enough to do any big projects with, I was excited to run across this tute Smiley  It is a bit wonky, need to figure out my math for spacing the cd's better, but here it is:

I added a little pocket on the left to tuck in a usb or memory card... once I find where I put my extras.  I nixed on the top stitching, I don't want to make the cd pockets any smaller.

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro Photo Challenge: My yard :) on: April 20, 2008 05:38:43 PM
I take a zillion pictures... almost daily.  I use the macro shots I take as background for my scrapbooking, makes them more personal for me (and cheaper to print than buying scrap paper with prints I don't really love).  This photo was taken today in the yard - I have a yardwork page to make, and this will be for the background! 

Thanks for looking Smiley

It is for this challenge: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240738.0
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fireplace screen enhanced :) (pic heavy) on: April 16, 2008 07:59:44 AM
Well, we have a tiny woodstove we don't use often and a cat box that hide behind a cheap screen we bought ages ago.  My kitties like their privacy.  I had this fabric I bought at wallyworld for a dollar or two and it matches my living room perfectly, but I didn't need anymore pillows and it is too heavy right now for curtains.  Then I had a tada moment... cover the screen!  It literally took 15 minutes with a glue gun.

Before picture...

I laid the fabric on the floor and traced the outline of the screen and cut it out

Morgan and Merlot are getting curious now...

Process picture

Finished!  The cats looove their new hiding spot!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Vday cards using paint samples, mags & paper - VERY IMAGE HEAVY on: February 12, 2008 09:23:43 AM
I LOVE doing these, very addicting.  I make them in "panels" usually 2" x 4" - enjoy!!

Most still need small touches - my handwriting is awful and I need to get some valentine's day flyers in the mail to cut up and use the "Happy Valentines Day" messages on them lol.

This is actually a birthday card for my MIL, but it is so close to V-day I've put it here

The top one I used pics from a flower catalog, dahlia's *sigh*

For a 11 yr old boy... used my teen's gaming magazine for monster

For my son about to enter basic training for the Army

I have a bunch of random ones like this, like I said, it's addicting!

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / You Tube Valentine :) on: January 09, 2008 07:36:26 AM
Ok, so my husband and I don't really celebrate valentine's day, but I LOVE crafting and usually do something for him and my boys.  We still have too many treats left over from christmas, I don't even want to look at chocolate and cookies... so I came up with this idea.

I am a stay at home mom, and he's a computer IT guy, so we instant message back and forth during the day.  Usually we send links to youtube videos etc. that we found... so I am making my own!!  I'm going to record me telling him how much I love him and am happy to have him in my life.  He'll get a kick out of it, something he can save.  Grin
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Queen size 2" square I Spy quilt - pic heavy on: January 08, 2008 08:14:03 AM
I love to quilt/sew, and I wanted practice at getting my corners better lined up... so I started this quilt!  I just started sewing 2 1/2" squares together and ended up with large blocks. Then had a smack on the forehead moment and sewed the large blocks I made together to get this fun quilt.  I still have the back to put on, and will work on that this week.  My teenage son loves it because he recognizes alot of the fabrics I've used in projects before... so I'm working on one for him now, and boy am I using up scraps!

Enjoy Smiley
