Here's a bronzish version:

I apologize for the green tinge on the skirt, but this was some quick-and-dirty Photoshopping. Wink

It's an old tutorial, but it still rocks. Grin

Had a flamingo cab for a friend. Couldn't figure out what to do with it, so I used this tutorial to make a flower pin to highlight it:

Thanks so much for the great tutorial!

14  Shoe-do-ku in Shoes: Completed Projects by regansbox on: July 20, 2006 06:27:28 PM
Have a friend who's a big fan of both sudoku and crazy shoes. Two great tastes that taste great together! I'm not a painter, as will be patently obvious, but I had to turn these plain shoes into a pair of... shoe-do-ku! Wink

(There's some whiteout going on in the closeup, but it shows the color of the shoes themselves better -- a vivid purple.)

I had a lot of fun with them. Thanks for looking!

15  Re: More scrabble tiles! Chinese takeout menu. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by regansbox on: May 27, 2006 07:10:29 PM
A non-elegant solution, but one which might go with your Chinese menu theme.

When I was having the same issue with wooden bingo counters, I bought a bunch of Chinese coin charms and just E6000ed them to the back of the counter.

They're really cheap at Hobby Lobby -- something like 10/$1, and at least once a month, they run those 50% off base metal findings sales. Course, I didn't check your profile to see where you were before I started this post, but I bet some craft store nearby carries them.

So I drag my butt into the house last night around midnight after a basketball game and what do I find on my doorstep?

A little furry blue super hero on a box! And, believe it or not, I resisted the temptation to tear the box open. I wanted to give it my full attention, so I waited until I got in from work tonight to look at the goodies Nest made me. And, dang, when they say good things come in small packages, they mean it. This little, unassuming box contained a massive amount of swap goodness. Fortunately, it contained a list to help guide me through. Smiley

Um... let's see... we've got...

A fabric transfer of the image of Super Grover for my own crafty creations:

A set of pushpins on a little cork backing:

(check out the Tweedlebug on the far right!)

A set of magnets in a little tin:

A set of five gift enclosure envelopes (perfect for me, because I'm a heavy-gifter) made from old Sesame Street books:

A big pack of personalized bookplates and stickers:

A glass slide necklace of Herry Monster and Grover:

Two CDs, one of the 25th anniversary collection and one custom made (which I'm listening to right now):

Custom CD song listing:
     Sesame Street ThemeBob McGrath
     A Smile Connects UsKermit
     The Honker Duckie Dinger JamboreeErnie
     All I Have to do is DreamLinda Ronstadt
     Mahna Mahna <-- which I read

          (not on the track listing) Wink
Ernie and Bert
     If I WereKermit
     Jim Henson's Dead <-- which
          I'd never heard and is great

AND (drum roll please), a great tweedy tote bag to carry all my stuff in with a Muppets pocket on the front:

*whimpers quietly* I'm so humbled. You rock, Nest!

17  Polar F11 Keeper in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by regansbox on: April 05, 2006 01:55:59 PM
On Craftster we have a strong crossection of geek and craft, so I thought I'd pose this one here. I recently got a Polar F11 heart rate monitor and I'm looking for suggestions on how to carry it from the car to the gym.

I generally schlep with me the watch (I don't wear it except while working out, as I break out), the strap, and a set of earbud headphones without a case. Here's an image of the strap if anybody needs a visual.

It's about an inch high and the length of a ribcage. Wink

I was pondering doing a clutch with two pegs about 6 inches apart in it around which to wrap the various elements. But I thought I'd pose the inquiry to the Craftster community to gather better ideas and see if anyone's already tackled something like it.

Looking forward to y'all's gadgety brainstorming!

My turn to show off my stuff from meg4568. You know you got great stuff when you go back and forth between what your favorite piece is. Without further ado, I present

Warhol Meatwad

which will soon be on my desk at work for my coworkers to wonder at. Ze meatwads are made out of ... clay. I think. They have some heft on them, which hopefully will dissuade the coworkers from stringing them together Barrel-o-Monkeys style.

Ass-Kicking Hand-Carved Venture Bros. Stamps

I was all proud because I sent Meg a hand-carved stamp myself (we must have been on the same wavelength), and now I'm all embarassed because it's so beginner compared to her masterpieces (l to r: Brock, Dr. Venture, the Monarch). Check out the detail on The Monarch:
She sent along a Speedball brayer and block printing ink. I have the Speedball carving set, but not the printing, so now I'll only have to go get a screen to be complete. Despite that, I had to print with it immediately upon opening, so I used some black stamp ink to start this card with Dr. Thadeus Venture on it:

Home Movies Finger Puppets

What's scary about this one to me is how seamlessly Meg translated the animated medium into clay. For someone for whom this show doesn't even fall in her top ten, she captured Jason, Brendon, and Melissa perfectly, down to Brendon's perpetually pointy hair and Melissa's sad eyes.

It's all freaking incredible, and I'm honored to have played in this swap with you guys.

Now it's my turn to post my spectacular swag from twelvety.

The postal inspector looks suspiciously at the overseas package and gives it the "sniff" test:

After passing inspection, the package was opened to reveal:
  • a tres cool set of sideshow poster magnets
  • a dropdead gorgeous choker
  • an incredible tote bag with lush blood-red satin lining and a custom transfer of the movie Freaks attached which twelvety posted previously and I had to restrain myself from peeking at (ignore the reverseness... the price of taking a picture in a mirror)
  • and a wonderful matching zippered clutch which sports a patch reminiscent of Van Ambrugh and highlights my love of circus

I feel extra lucky because I wasn't even going to play in this swap, and then twelvety's partner fizzled out. Yaaaay for me. Smiley

Loving it.

Is that ship on the front embroidery or an iron-on or what?
