11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Spring/Easter swap?EDIT: Signups are up! on: February 05, 2009 07:11:06 PM
I know it's only February, but I'm already in a spring mood!  Grin

I haven't seen anyone mention spring swaps lately, is there any interest? Or is it to early?

I included Easter just because I love the springy-ness of it....it could either be just a spring swap or if the partners agree, it could be Easter too.

I was thinking of signups until about maybe Feb 20 or 27? Then sendouts by early April? Or is that to long also?

I'd love some opinions!  Grin

Here is the link to the swap!
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cupcake Baby Hat on: January 27, 2009 03:36:26 PM
I'm in love with those little cupcake hats on babies, so I thought I'd have to make one too!

I do think it could of used some sprinkles or something....but I didin't want to add beads because it was for a little girl, and you never know with all the choking hazards. I want to make a fuzzy baby blue one with a dark brown base for my baby boy, but my fiance already said his son cannot wear cupcakes. We will see Tongue

I need to learn how to crochet beads right onto the project I think  Grin

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pink Ninja Turtle Beanie on: January 27, 2009 03:33:31 PM
I just wanted to share a picture of a custom Ninja Turtle beanie I did...in PINK! I actually love it and think it looks cool in pink, but my fiance on the other hand didin't understand the pink lol.

He just kept saying "But Ninja Turtle's aren't pink..."

14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Tea Set on: January 27, 2009 03:31:19 PM
Just a little amigurumi teapot and teacup  Grin

Although once I finished it I realized that the teapot looks kind of like a cupcake, so my next one will have to be in cupcake colors!

The trim on the teapot is actually straight, but I forgot to straighten it out before the picture oops.

15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Getting a mottled effect on eggs? on: January 23, 2009 10:35:10 AM

I really want to make some tiny robins eggs like in this listing on etsy:


But I'm not quite sure how to get that speckled effect. I tried looking on glassattic, but that site is so huge and a little overwhelming sometimes  Shocked

Would it be best just to make eggs, then paint them? That's what I'm thinking.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!  Grin
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How do you make your embroidery patterns look like clip art? on: January 08, 2009 11:43:36 AM
Ok this is really confusing to word (sorry!), but I have some drawings that I'd love to scan onto my computer and make them into embroidery patterns for my Etsy shop.

My question is, how do you get them to look like professional drawings or clip art? I have photoshop, is there something there I can do?

I dont want it to just look like I'm sending them a scanned jpg of a drawing.

Am I making any sense?  Grin
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Christmas Gifts from Urban Threads on: December 27, 2008 12:50:19 PM
No idea why these pictures are so huge, I made them smaller on photobucket.

I made an embroidery for both sets of my grandparents, and my fiance's grandparents. Next time though I wont get cheap dollar tree frames because it wrinkles them to much....but ah lessen learned.

This is a cherry blossom branch for my Dad's parents, they go to Japan almost every year so I thought they might like this Smiley

My fiance's grandparents are very into birds and birdwatching. This picture isin't as good because I had to take it fast since we needed to leave for Christmas and it still wasen't wrapped lol.

This was for my Mom's parents...they love wine and it says "I love cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food"

It was a lot of fun, I learned from my mistakes....and now I just need to figure out how to make it smooth when I put it in the frames  Grin
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ninja Turtle Beanies on: December 27, 2008 12:39:10 PM
I have some friends in Alaska who I wanted to send some gifts to...and they always comment on my beanies, so I thought I'd make them one! I made three different sizes and three different colors so they could choose Smiley

19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Snowboarder Sled Girl on: December 27, 2008 12:37:24 PM
I wanted to make something wintery and snuggly, so here is what I came up with Smiley

At first she was just going to be a snowboarder, but the first board I made was waaaay to big so my fiance suggested I make it into a sled....what a good idea!

If the pictures are wonky, there are better ones in my blog.

Here is a picture of her on my tree:

20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Crochet Christmas Tree "Scarf" Garland on: December 05, 2008 09:39:23 AM
I got the bright idea of making a scarf garland for my treenot realizing how long it would take haha.

It wouldent of been to bad if I had started it in November so I didint have to spend three straight days trying to get it done so I could put it on my tree.

If I had to do it again, I would use a smaller hook/less fluffy yarn for the trim Smiley I do plan on gluing beads on some color panels, but Ill do any embellishing after Christmas, I just wanted to get this puppy up!

I do love it though, it makes the tree look cozy!

The pictures seem kinda small, but I do have bigger ones on my Flickr  Grin
