1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Make a sweet xmas card for a sick lil girl? on: December 10, 2007 01:21:42 PM
From a bulletin ive come across on myspace

"This letter is from 'Audrey's Umbrella', which is a mail support group for people with brain tumors. I know we are scattered around and thought we could help bring a smile to this little girl's face.... You can follow up with her website at the bottom to verify that it is not a hoax, and that the request is current. Please do not abuse her personal address, pass along only to people you know will be respectful. Thank you!~*~Heather~*~


I hope everyone is doing well. It's been awhile since I've posted. I have a
favor to ask, there is a little girl named Dasia who has a pontine glioma
who was hoping to birthday cards from all 50 states. She heard about Katie
Metz and how she ended up getting cards from all over the world. Her
birthday was Dec. 3rd and her mother posted her birthday hopes on her caring bridge site. Well I read her update tonight and sadly the little recieved
only 3 cards. Here's my favor, do you think we could send her Christmas
cards from all 50 states?Huh

This is her website www.caringbridge.org/visit/dasiaatkinson

Her home address is
Dasia Atkinson
1808 Oakado Dr East
Mobile, AL 36609 "

When i read this i thought it was so sad that she surprisingly only received 3 cards for her birthday and was hoping all you on craftster might be interested in maybe making this sweet sick lil girl feel special on xmas and make her a card.

i really think its important to do something like this especially around the holiday season and it might help her feel a lil better.

I know as soon as i get a stamp ill be making her one, and would like to thank anyone else in advance who also does this, i know she'll really appreciate it:)

thank you so much, have a blessed holiday season

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Painting dolls????? help!:( on: December 02, 2007 04:37:42 PM
I have a question about painting dolls, specifically the plain ones you find at dollar stores, you know, the generic Barbies.

I have a special type of project that i want to do with one but id have to paint the whole body, and i wanted to know if theirs any special type of paint for this, or if a glaze or something has to go over it afterwards?

i dont want it to feel dry and dusty after its dried and i definitely dont want any cracks to start appearing.

Can anyone help me? Sad

This is another one of pin up type ladies that ive done on ms paint, "Ghoulie Julie". Her skin tone is a nod to the B horror movie gal "Ms.Monster" who's pretty obscure so don't feel bad if you've never heard of her. The rest is just my rendering of what a swingin' dead chick would wear/look like/and pose like. ((plus drawing hands on ms paint ain't no picnic either)) I love her so much i wanted to go as her for Halloween, but alas~ surprise pregnancies kinda threw a wrench in those plans, ah well maybe some other year, and now that i look at her she kinda reminds me of "Ms.Argentina" from Beetlejuice, ...hmmmm
haha anyway enjoy

4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fun with MS paint/Robot Love on: November 28, 2007 01:45:57 PM
This is one of my lovelies that i doodled up back when a scanner was still foreign to me and the only way i could get any art up online was to do it on ms paint.
So with that i did lots of lil thank you pic comments for adds and the like for my myspace and out of all of the ones that ive done this lil sex droid may very well be my favs.
But she never did get too many comments, but thats ok, i still love the whole sci fi sex fantasy comic esque low brow pop art angle of it and hope you guys like it to, would love to hear what you think.

Thanks for looking!:)

7  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Xmas tree theme contest on: November 20, 2007 02:32:43 PM
how about a challenge where we could submit entry's of xmas trees done in a certain theme?
for instance, since im such a tim burton geek, you could do a corpse bride tree in light blue colors or a nbc tree with jack and sally tree toppers.
or it could be from another movie, show, it could be based on a color, pattern, time period, etc. the possibilities are endless

i think itd be really fun and would love to do a tree like with a theme then the traditional seasonal trimmings
