1  COOKING / Dessert / TARDIS Cake Help on: September 11, 2008 10:20:55 AM
I need some help.  I am making a TARDIS for the groom's cake for my soon to be hubby.  What would be the best way to create a tower from a sheet cake to insure that it doesn't collapse when he cuts it?  Or, do I need to go find a special pan?  Thanks in advance. Smiley

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Traveler's protection on: February 15, 2008 09:04:13 AM
I have a friend who is about to head off to Japan for a year, and he asked me to make him something to protect him on his travels.  This is what I came up with.



It is made of an Altoid type tin, but it is slightly smaller.  The symbol on the outside (for you non-gamers) is the symbol for the god Fharlanghn from D&D.  He is the god of horizons, distance, travel, and roads.  Since my friend is part of our gaming group, what better way to protect him (my boyfriend's idea). Smiley  And, I even made him a little Godzilla to play with which fits in the box.  Now my boyfriend wants a Godzilla of his own. Smiley 

The inside has his home town on the top and where he is going on the bottom.  This will help protect him on his trip there, on his trip back, and whenever he is in these actual locations.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Really late Christmas gifts on: February 06, 2008 10:00:37 AM
I made these note pads for my coworkers yesterday when we were out for Mardi Gras.  They were suppose to be Christmas/Hanuka presents, but I got sidetracked.  They are made from a recycled garment box and used office paper.  I bound them with embroidery floss and drew the initials with sharpies.  This was my first attempt at book binding; fun but hard on the hands. Smiley

Thanks for looking.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Amber and Jet Necklace/Bracelet on: January 09, 2008 08:44:37 AM
I made this for my sister's birthday last August.  It is pretty simple, but I like it.  The pendant was a piece of raw amber that I polished and wired wrapped.  My wire wrapping skills are not that great, but you have to start somewhere. Smiley

(Still can't figure out this picture posting thing, sorry.)

I found this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45189.0 and thought I would give it a try.

It's a little wonky, but it's been a while since I've sewed anything.  And, that yellow fabric turned out to be a little on the stretchy side.

This is the back.  I put little buttons on the straps to make it looked finished, but they close with Velcro.

This is for my friends sister-in-law.  She has a VW bug, and likes lady bugs.  So, I decided to use this fabric that I've been hoarding for years.  The yellow is a table cloth that my grandmother gave me that I will never use.  I should have gone with another color now that I look at it; it kind of looks like a bumble bee. Smiley

(Sorry about posting links and not pictures; I am not very good at this internet programing stuff.)
