So...Jar Swap fever is in the air and you've stumbled upon the Jar of Stars Swap! Cheesy

For this swap, each participant can choose to be assigned up to 2-5 partners and will be required to craft 2-5 stars per partner. You may discuss with your partners how many stars you would like to craft for one another. The stars must NOT exceed 4X4X4 (so no folding to make them fit these size restrictions is allowed). You may craft your stars using ANY MEDIUM (i.e. clay, sewing, paper, etc.). The stars that you create are completely up to you unless you and your partner discuss otherwise. There is room for you to list what you like/dislike, but what you receive is up to your partner, unless it is something you expressly forbid. By the end of this swap, everyone should have a super awesome and unique jar of stars. Cheesy

Quick Facts:
2-5 partners
2-5 stars

no extras unless otherwise discussed
4x4x4 - NO bigger
STARS only - NO jars

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.

We must have a DC# for all parcels in this swap.

If you have a Wist or Pinterest, let your partner know if you'd like them to craft for you based on your favs.

3  Jar of Stars in New Swap Theme Ideas by sillysmushyhippocake on: October 08, 2011 09:07:30 AM
So I am currently in the Jar of Whimsies and Jar of Hearts swaps. I've been wanting to organize my first swap for quite some time and these swaps gave me some inspiration. Since hearts and stars are my favorite shapes, I thought, "Hey! What about organizing a Jar of Stars swap?"

I will use the same guidelines as the Jar of Hearts swap- each swapper will be assigned 2-5 partners and can choose to craft 2-5 stars per partner. The stars must not exceed 4X4X4. Extras can be discussed and decided among partners. Stars only; no jars. Stars can be crafted in any medium.

Would anyone be interested in joining this swap? Of course, if it exceeds 25 people, then I would need a co-organizer. I was thinking of opening sign-ups in mid to late October and making send-outs mid to late November.

Any takers? Any feedback is much appreciated.  Cheesy

4  Halloween-themed Necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sillysmushyhippocake on: October 11, 2010 06:13:21 PM
Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. I love creepy/cute things that you hear about or read about in books, but never see.

I present to you:

Eye of Newt Necklace:

Unicorn Horn Necklace:

And a spooky face:

The vial necklaces are real glass vials, 2 inches long. I sealed the cork stoppers with E-6000, so that the contents of the vials wouldn't go flying should the cork pop off.

The labels on the outside of the vials are made from polymer clay, as are the contents.  I made a bunch with different colored labels brushed with Pearl Ex and such and they look so gosh darn cute. I'm in love with them. They look like I raided Witch Hazel's magic ingredients cabinet.  Cheesy

The spooky face is also made from polymer clay. I used a mold for the face. The spider web and spider are stamps. I then gave it black wash, if you will.

Questions? Comments?

Happy Halloween!  Smiley

5  Nightmare Before Christmas Trinket Box in Completed Projects by sillysmushyhippocake on: October 07, 2010 07:27:02 PM

I made this for the Tim Burton Swap.

Bought a plain wooden box. Painted it, sanded it to give it that distressed look and used a Jack Skellington stencil to make the face on the outside of the lid.

On the inside of the lid is a polymer clay key I made to look like Jack. I love skeleton keys and thought that a Jack Skellington key would be fitting for the this project. You can't tell from the photo, but the body of the key has purple sugar glitter painted over the black.

I'm very happy with the way the box turned out.

My package from haroldlovesmaude is AMAZING!!! She outdid herself! Thanks so much haroldlovesmaude!! I'm going to have the paintings framed for my craft room. Cheesy

By the way, I'm curious as well as to the strips of canvas. Where can one find such canvas?

The shirt is so cool, I'm afraid to wear it and mess it up. Should I turn it inside out to wash it?

10  Tote Bag Constructed using partsof t-shirts and a belt... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sillysmushyhippocake on: June 20, 2010 05:50:07 PM
I forgot to take before photos of the t-shirts and the belt  Sad, but here is the finished product Smiley:

The front of the tote bag was a t-shirt I bought at Goodwill. The back of the bag is scrap fabric I had lying around. I used another piece of a t-shirt to make a pocket inside, and a child's belt for the strap.

I'm pretty proud of it. It's a gift for a cousin. Comments/Constructive Critiques welcome!

Sorry for the crappy pics. My camera has been misbehaving as of late.

Front of the bag:

Back of bag:

Pocket inside:

Belt Strap:
