11  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / life sized capuchin sock monkey! on: December 25, 2006 10:40:58 PM
I make sock animals. It's what I do. I started with the classic stylized sock monkey and now my work has taken a more realistic movement. This is one of my favorite pieces. It's a life size capuchin monkey. I think I used three socks. two black one cream and felt for details. I finished him a few monthes ago and for some reason I'm just posting him now. I miss him so much though that I may make another. New ideas for animals for animals would be appreciated. I am confident that I can make any animal.

full body..


close up..

and a real capuchin so you know what they really look like.

thanks for looking and let me know what you guys think!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sailor Jerry Wallet *WARNING* boobies ahead! on: November 21, 2006 04:26:46 PM
So, my sister drops off this black wallet at my house last week and says, "here paint something on this" After considering a few different themes I decided on a sailor jerry-esque collage.
Here it is, hope you like it.
13  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Wisdom teeth? on: July 27, 2006 09:55:16 PM
Yeah, I had no idea really where to put this and "recycling" seemed as good as any. I had my wisdom teeth pulled last week (I only had two) and they let me keep them. I've already cleaned them so they are nice and shiney white now. I want to do some sort of art with them, but I just can't figure out what. I want it to be obvious what they are. I like tiny art so I thought of maybe making a tiny little plaque and affixing them to it with a specimen type label below.

Someone help me out with this! they are so cool and I want to do something awsome with them.
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / plank floors Vs. Pre-fab wood floors... on: April 20, 2006 09:59:11 PM
I'm redoing my daughters room and I wanted to put in wood floors. It's not that big a room. Only 171 sq. ft. I was going to use the pre-fab snap in place type flooring but it's just more than I want to pay. I found some for 79cents a square foot but that still comes to about $150. My question is do you think I could just go buy some plank lumber, sand it real good, stain and coat it and use that? I know I need to use subflooring and all that jazz. I'm also pretty sure I would know how to install it. I figured since that's how things were done before pre-fab it would work right?

I got this awsome material for christmas. So I decided to make a few things for my sis for her birthday. I used tutes I found on this site. Modified a few of them. I really like how things came out and I plan on making another set for myself and possibly some to sell.

18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How to ship chocolate? PLease help... on: February 12, 2006 01:10:12 AM
I make really good chocolate truffles. I want to start selling them online. (I already sell locally) My concern is shipping them I think they will melt. How can I ship them without melting? Is there special packaging or something?
19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lady Luck's earings...AKA mini card earings... on: February 01, 2006 04:18:44 PM
While visiting my sister in Arizona I found these mini cards. they are only about 1" X1/2".
I got them for something completely different but after 6 monthes I decided I was nver going to do it so I might as well use the cards elsewhere. I really like them and they are nice and light on your ears. comments welcome.

Sorry the Pics are blurry. still trying to figure out my digicam.
20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / a challenge to soapmakers.... on: January 12, 2006 11:20:18 AM
I have excema. A really bad case on my hands. I did some research and found lecithin can help. I changed my eating habits and included lecithin into my diet. The problem is external stimuli can cause bouts as well. I.E most soaps.

The challenge: I want some soap that I can use! preferably bar but liquid is good to. I want it to contain lecithin(found at most health food stores) maybe some other helppful herbs, and be gentle enough for me to use.

If someone can create this for me I will make a comissioned sterling silver piece just for you. I would also like to have ongoing supply so this could get you some money. I know other people have excema and I'm sure they would love this soap as well.

Good luck! and i really hope someone can do it!
