I have nothing to add as I've just gotten back into the crafting scene after years away, but thank you for this list and any new contributions, I've been here for 8yrs and had only even heard about half of these places Smiley

these are quite amazing, I remember my grandmother having some similar trinkets that I was fascinated with when I was a child Smiley

I can't believe how small and detailed they are...awesome job! Cheesy
33  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Trio of Basement Window Panels on: March 23, 2008 08:45:17 AM
This is my first stained glass project for the house after taking a class in the fall loving it so much and buying all the equipment for a studio in the basement, lol.  I made the pattern to replicate a single pane I had seen somewhere on the internet.  I have yet to hot glue the panels to the frame but they seem to be sitting there ok for the time being.  Nice to add some privacy but still let lots of light in.

34  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Warhol-ed Dog Portrait on: March 22, 2008 10:34:10 PM
Another pet project of mine, I needed something to hang above the couch in the living room...what better than a print of my best friend Smiley  I had seen the idea in a magazine and knew that I could tackle the project on my own.  So I found a picture of my little girl.

Original Photo:

I then took the photo into Photoshop and Desaturated it (changed it to greyscale), then I Posterized it down to 4 levels (now there are only 4 colors).  I printed it off and graphed it, chose a color scheme to match my living room (white, pale green, darker green, plum) and matched it to the 4 colors of the photo print off.  Purchased the 4'x5' canvas, graphed that off and proceeded to transfer the image.  With left over paint from the living room (just had to purchase the plum color) I proceeded to paint Smiley

Altered Print:

Action Shot:

I do have plans for our male's portrait...just haven't got to the transferring and paint part yet Tongue
35  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / A Couple of Hot Dogs on: March 22, 2008 10:14:54 PM
I saw the other Hot Dog costume and it was super cute, thought I'd share my own version Smiley  I actually made these like 6yrs ago with miscellaneous scraps around the house and they lasted about 4 Halloweens before they fell apart.  The shaggy male doesn't seem to mind wearing clothes but our female never looks impressed, lol Smiley

I used foam from a custom headboard for the buns, put pantyhose over them, some scrap red fabric for the ketchup with a cut up piece of coat hanger to keep it's shape, they are held on with white straps and velcroed together.  Hope you enjoy!
