11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bookcase on: April 24, 2009 12:24:56 PM
I had previously been using the top of my headboard to hold all my books, but that just wasn't working anymore, so I decided to build myself a bookcase.  It is pretty simple, but I love it.

and with  my books...

12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Children's Kick Off The Summer Swap on: April 24, 2009 12:01:35 PM
I was thinking of hosting a children's kick off the summer swap.  There is about a month left of school and then my kids are home for the summer.  I don't know about you guys, but the first few weeks of summer vacation are a bit chaotic... kids who were used to a school schedule find themselves "totally bored"... lol.  So I thought it would be fun to put together a package of crafts/activities/whatever to help our children kick off their summer vacation!  Anyone interested?

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Momma's got a new dress! butterick 4914 on: March 27, 2009 07:47:28 PM
After taking a few months off from sewing I decided to get back into the swing of things.  This is Butterick 4919.  This pattern was very easy.  All I had to change was the top, I'm not very blessed in that area..but anyway... on to the pics.




Actually on Me:

I really need a tan....lol
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet version for the cables on Bella's mittens... ? question has been revised on: February 01, 2009 05:44:57 AM
I love bella's mittens from Twilight... however, I am a very beginning knitter and honestly, I still suck at it. 

I was wondering if there was a crochet version for the cables shown on her mittens.  I believe they called it a horseshoe cable.  Can anyone help me?  I've search for different crochet cable stitches online, but am not coming up with anything...   
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flapper style hat on: January 31, 2009 01:19:26 PM
I was browsing through the crochet board today and saw this hat and pattern...


I decided to give it a try... here's mine.  Definately not as glamorous looking as the original poster, but I like it.

18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / X-ray socks... on: January 24, 2009 01:57:40 PM
I saw these here on craftster and I wanted to try them.  I used freezer paper and a bleach pen.

19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My stenciled twilight shirt...first time using freezer paper on: January 24, 2009 07:06:27 AM
Okay, i know I'm late in the game to be getting into twilight, but I'm completely hooked!  I was going through the galleries of all the Twilight swap rounds and saw this messenger bag that someone had stenciled.  She was also kind enough to share the stencil so I thought I'd give it a try.  I stenciled the back first, and learned to just leave it alone until it dries a bit.  I was impatient and pulled the paper off too soon and ended up with a bit of smudging, but I learned my lesson for the front... Here's my new Twilight shirt!  Thanks to Wal-mart I got this shirt for $5 on the clearance rack! Can't beat that!


Here's the back...you can see some small smudging by the first i and the g
20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Modifying the swap questionaire? on: December 09, 2008 11:23:48 AM
Hi.  First off, I apologize if this has already been discussed, there are so many pages of questions that it would take forever to go through, and I don't know if there is a search option for questions...

I am planning to organize my first swap in a couple of months once my schedule clears enough to do so.  This will be my first time organizing.  I would like to protect myself as well as those joining my swap as much as possible from flakers, non-communicators, and procrastinators (I've recently had to deal with these problems from a partner).  Is it okay to add questions like "Do you understand and agree that you are required to post (or pm me) once a week?"  "Do you understand/agree to contact your partner to determine their likes/dislikes, ask questions, or just to introduce yourself to acknowledge them?"  " Do you understand/agree that the send out date is CONCRETE? (certain circumstances will of course be considered)"

I take my commitments very seriously and almost always send early.  It bugs me when I am in a swap with a reasonable crafting time and yet there are late senders.  I know organizing a swap involves a lot more time and effort than just participating in a swap, but is it okay to "cover all bases" with the questionaire so that they have no excuses later?
