1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Famous Libraries of the World Rubber Stamp Series on: July 15, 2019 09:01:24 PM
I have found myself hiding my work and not sharing it with the world. Well that is not the spirit of Craftster, now is it?! I am going to try to make an effort to share and appreciate the work of you all more.

So I start here. This is a series of stamps that I donated for use to a letterboxing event held at a library. I tried to select a range of libraries from various areas and various times in history. I got exhausted after 6 and also had a time limit, so I stopped, but I have so many more library stamps that I would love to make that I may add to the series some day. Especially since they are going to another event next year, so I have time to add in some!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Karisma Hat on: January 02, 2018 09:24:11 PM

I haven't been an active member on Craftster for several years now (not because of a lack of love!), so to help get me back into the groove I figured I would post my most recent completed project.

This hat was designed to match the Karisma Mittens on Ravelry (Mitten pattern not easily recommended. It was translated from Finnish. I had to modify it quite a bit to get it to fit and had to design the cables at the end different to lengthen the mitten). Pattern of hat can also be found on Ravelry).

Yarn: Doubled up DK yarn or Bulky

Cable Band
Size 5 needles
Guage: 20sts

Using Cable Chart used in Karisma Mittens:
Cast on 28sts
Right Side(rows with cables): sl1kw, p1 (place stitch marker), work chart, (place marker) p1 k1
Wrong Side: sl1pw, k1, (st marker) work chart [but have the knits be purls and purls be knits], (st marker) k1, p1
Keep doing this until the chart has been fully repeated 11 times. This allows for no breaks in the cables pattern. Stitch the ends together to form a band. (to make seamless, use a duplicate stitch)

Top of Hat
Size 8 needles
Guage: 17 sts

Pick up 84 sts behind knit border of band to preserve the border. Knit all sts in the round until it measures 5.5 including cable band.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / TSA Fan Club on: June 16, 2011 07:01:42 PM
So I kind of have an obsession with commercial flying. And it isn't just the experience in the sky, I love EVERYTHING even going through security. When people were in an uproar about body scanners I was beyond excited. Everything about the processes of everything. So, when I saw this on Pinterest, I know I REALLY needed it as a hoopla. So, what do you do when you have a flu for 3 days? Cross-Stitch of course!

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The New Generation in Geothermal Technology - Geo 2.0 on: June 06, 2011 06:28:08 PM
Featuring the new generation in Geothermal technology, the Geo 2.0!

This new type of Geothermal heating is a new "green" option. It also saves your green by making your thermostat think it is warmer than it really is; saving you energy. Previous installation of older geothermal units were bulky and expensive, but the Geo 2.0 is compact and extremely affordable.

The Welcome to the future.

8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / *Label Tutorial* Take one down, pass it around, 10 tubes of lip balm on the wall on: November 25, 2010 02:07:03 AM
Hello! I am new to this board as a poster but I do occasionally visit. I made my first batch of lip balm the other day that I felt I needed to share. I received  the supplies(with the exception of labels) and instructions in the OWS63 swap from lindyv321. She sent Bubble Gum and Cherry Berry flavorings. This batch is Cherry Berry as I was making some as a gift and it fit the recipient more, but I can't wait to try the Bubble Gum!  Grin

*Bees Wax
*Cocoa Butter
*Sweet Almond Oil
(Lip Balm Tutorial by [email protected])

Based on questions asked, I have made a mini tutorial on how to make the labels for these tubes.

Label Tutorial
*Scrapbooking Paper (the ones that are on the thin side. The thicker ones will not work for this.)
*Packing Tape (Packing tape's width is the perfect size for this! How convenient!)

1. With a scrap piece of paper make a template of what size label you need. It is best to make it so the paper doesn't overlap itself, but have the edged just meet itself. Draw and arrow pointing "up" on it so you know which way it goes. This way your label won't turn out accidentally sideways.

2. With the template cut out a bunch of labels out of the scrapbooking paper you chose.

3. Lay the label down and take a piece of packing tape(length should be about twice the width of the label) and place it on the label  with the label approximately centered. Then cut the excess off so it looks like pictured below.
Doesn't have to be exact of course, but one side should have just enough tape to hold to the tube. The other side should have a little bit more than that to keep the label on good and secure.

4. Place the small end of tape on the tube and wrap the label around tightly making sure it is not crooked or overlapping the cap or adjuster thingy(whatever it's called haha).

And you're done! Now enjoy your beautiful labels!
9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / FOC Icons no longer grandfathered? on: October 19, 2010 10:09:51 PM

I noticed that I no longer have a pink skull for my icon as I have had, but am now back to the heart. I read we were grandfathered into this, but I don't have the option to change it back! Is this a mistake or did I miss something?

Part of my boyfriends Christmas/Anniversary gift to me included a jar of whimsies(with a diamond necklace inside). Inside was some super mini Terracotta plant pots. So, this is what I decided to do with one of them...
