32  Re: Make me a new friend in The Swap Gallery by Rainbow_Storms on: August 21, 2008 10:39:07 AM
I recieved yesterday! Here is the bio, followed by lovely pictures from his first home, and then acclimating to his new surroundings!

Name: Henfys - which is only one of many Welsh words for Rainbow according to the internet translation helper, and is pronounced

"han (a as in hard) -vus (u as in bus)"

according to the internet pronunciation of Welsh

Age: hatched a bit ago - long enough me dear ole mum tossed me outa the nest to make me own way in th' world

Date of birth: February 2nd - yeah that is Groundhog's day, which caused me some grief. It makes me a dead on Aquarius which is fitting as I am a bit of an air between the ears kinda guy.

Species: Dragon - though mum is an earth dragon and pappy is a water dragon, and being I am an air sign that sort of got me a bit flustery and hyper so I am a bit of a airhead dragon, er, um, wind dragon I mean. And I mean WIND not GAS.

Where are you from: it's a secret - OK, OK the dark far away reaches of the Welsh mountains where no one can reach without really trying hard, in the deep dark caverns where I NEVER want to return - sorry mum

Weather on your planet? duh - wet, dark - hoping for better in me travelin's

Allergies? vegetables! not really, but sure wish I were!

What food do you eat? prefer red bloody meat, still wiggling if possible...

Fave colour? Pastel Rainbows! Of course! Caught some flak on that'un, o'course, but still - it is good for catchin' a female's eye...

Likes? rain, lunch, travel, breakfast, flying, dinner, girls, squirrel ca-bobs, gold and trinkets, birds on the fly, rainbows, lunch

Dislikes? vegetables   Tongue

Fears? getting water logged

Issues? (ie are you insecure etc?) my name caused me grief with the other young dragons, and having pastel wings and an absentee father didn't help, plus there are the nightmares of getting swallowed alive in a cave because mum liked dark holes in the ground and I just wanted to fly free!

Hopes and dreams? I want to travel and see the world, or at least never live in a hole again!

Idol? ME!
oh wait - you mean someone I like not who I worship...

Are you a goodie or a baddie? I am a good guy, though a bit self centered...

How do you feel about chickens? mmm, tasty

Do you have an accent? duh - Welsh!

Any other useful info? I love glittery stuff and even though I hate dark hole in the ground caves I do want a nice secure place to maintain watch over my treasure - ain't it purty? Keep yer hands to yerself, now!
I like swimming some, but would rather be flying, and while mum was a bit of a stick in the mud (being an earth dragon and all that) I am really fun to be around and the life of the party, even if I do say so myself. Oh - but alcohol is a really bad idea even though I can't resist a bit of the good stuff now and again. Makes me a bit gassy and flamey...

me in the egg right after mum laid me - mum looks tuckered, don' she?

mum giving me some space so I can hatch!

me sticking my nose out on the ledge as a youngin'

me getting ready for flight practice

look mum! no feet!

mum and me getting a bit crowded since I grew fast!

hey - what is that out there?

Me tryin' to catch a squirrel - if I sit real still up here and don't move, since this is where they like having sex, maybe I can get two...

hey - can we go for a ride?   Roll Eyes

I want to go to my new home   Sad

what do you mean I can't go like this?    Angry

what do you mean I have to get in that box!   Shocked

well - treasure WILL help   Smiley

OK - in the box I go   Cheesy

I love ya son, be safe.    Cry Cry

 Undecided  Takes after his pappy he does, roaming ways and all...

At his new home-
Meeting his first roommate-

LolaCat says, "....Big Deal."

Julie says "ACK!!!" and runs away.

Finally, resting after a long trip.

34  Super quick teeny tiny coin purse for festivals in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rainbow_Storms on: August 08, 2008 03:33:13 PM
So I'm going to a one day festival (actually it's 3 days, but I'm only making tomorrow.. and I wanted to be able to pack around my cash/coins in my back pocket, so I wouldn't need to carry anything. This is what I whipped up. It's nothing super special, it didn't take long at all. I just think it's cute.

Front closed- I just used left over thread scraps. so I would run out of thread and have to tie it off (see top left. Bleck!)... I promise I can sew a little neater than that!

back- RICE BALL!!  Grin

Front Opened.

Just wanting to show off my little rice ball, it was my accomplishment for the day, however small.  Tongue

And here are all of my beautiful things from nicolatte! I can't begin to describe what an awesome job she did on everything!!! I wanted kawaii/japanese stuff, and she went above and beyond!! If you are ever partnered with nico, you should consider yourself uber-lucky!

The stuff she bought-

Cute Racoon Notebook

2 Sets of cute stationery (Sorry about the first pic, I can't figure out why it's like that...)

A notepad w/ two different patterns

A cool pencil box (it even has a little tray inside!

Cool food erasers and cute animal erasers

A beautiful fan

The super cute card she sent!

Some Hello Kitty and happy food stickers & a sticker book

(yeah, she sent a ton of stuff!!)

Finally, the two things she made-
An adorable little beaded dragonfly

and the most gorgeous earrings! Everyone I've showed is soo jealous.

OH, she also sent some chocolate/strawberry candies (they were gone... so no pictures!  Cheesy) And a really cute cell phone charm that was two cherries w/ little kawaii faces.. I'd packed that off somewhere and it didn't make it into the pictures. So yeah, I was definitely spoiled! Thanks so much, nicolatte, this was an awesome swap.

38  Some pendants- RHPS, Kawaii, skulls, etc! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rainbow_Storms on: July 25, 2008 06:56:15 AM
So let me start this off by saying- I horde magazines, stationery, scrapbook paper, etc. I am a pack rat when it comes to cute designs/pictures/images... and I love to cut them out. I don't really like to make collages, though because I like each image to stand out on it's own. So what I've done is basically marry my paper addiction, and my love of polyclay pendants... it's basically the same concept as resin jewelry, except I think it's a lot easier, and definitely less expensive. So tell me what you think!

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Not sure what to call this- I refer to her as the sexy holster chick  Cheesy

Neat little skull

Jewel Cat

Kawaii Skull

Bunny & Chick

Happy Rainbow

In case you couldn't tell, I was having a bit of a bipolar moment when I made all of these...  Tongue Undecided

39  Necklace Pendants- sellable? How much? in Get Product and Website Opinions by Rainbow_Storms on: July 11, 2008 02:06:01 PM
I've been experimenting with polymer clay and paper cut outs for jewelry. I personally think these are pretty cute, but I was wondering if they would sell- etsy would be my primary selling place, and I never know how to price things. Are these something you think would sell? I was thinking around 4-5 USD, but didn't know if that was too high, or if it would be under pricing them. It would be just for the pendant, not the chain. I could always include the chain, but I would probably mark them up about a dollar higher if I did. I figure most people have chains already, and then it'd save them a little. Anyway, rambling! All opinions/questions/comments greatly appreciated!

40  Kawaii Necklaces and Shrinky Pill bottle earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rainbow_Storms on: July 11, 2008 11:22:06 AM
So here are some necklace pendants I've made out of painted polyclay and cut outs from kawaii memo pads. They measure anywhere from 1 to 2 inches across, the first one being the largest, and the other two being approx. the same size. I think they're pretty cute, but I'd like to get some people's opinions about them!

Cat and Mouse- (I never remember this brand's name)

Little Rainbow-

Mushroom House-

Also, a pair of shrinky dink pill bottle earrings. They're a little smudged in places, but they're just for myself, so I don't mind.
