81  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Twilight themed beaded pincushion on: April 30, 2010 11:15:02 AM
yet another Twilight swap item I made for BunnyTuTu.  Grin

it's a pincushion made from a Sobe Life Water bottle cap covered in tiny seed beads.

I found this tutorial quite a while ago, and when I started the One Tiny Twilight Thing swap, I knew I wanted to make a pincushion for my partner.  but the idea to use this particular pattern came at the last second (as I had forgotten about it).  I just made sure to tweak the pattern so that it was more Twilighty. 
82  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Breaking Dawn needle book book on: April 30, 2010 10:33:18 AM
yup.  I've done it again.  Grin  I really don't get tired of making these.  unfortunately I can't make any more in black for a while as I can no longer get black felt BY ITSELF at Wal-Mart (their felt now comes in packages of multiple colors and I have no use for beige, brown and tan felt.  especially when you only get one of each color.  what a waste).

anyways, I made this book for the One Tiny Twilight Thing swap which my partner BunnyTuTu has received, so I thought I'd show it off.


83  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince needle book book on: April 07, 2010 04:25:37 PM
yes, for the third time, "book" is in the title twice because for the third time, I've made a book-like needle book.  Grin

this one was for the OTHPT (One Tiny Harry Potter Thing) swap.  my partner's favorite book is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so I knew I had to recreate the cover into a cross stitch pattern.  I made it up from a Dumbledore sprite and a Harry Potter sprite that korinchan made.  then I found a sprite of a chalice and turned it into the basin that the locket was in.  lastly, I found a background that was similar to the book cover.  and here you have it:



even though I nearly make my fingers bleed while making these, I'm totally addicted!  Grin

85  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Labyrinth shadowbox on: March 24, 2010 09:51:34 PM
I made this shadowbox for ohiodiygirl for the latest Labyrinth swap.

I found a nice big picture of a page from the Return to Labyrinth manga, colored it, added some flat back crystals, and glued it to the back of the box.  that was the easiest part.  Roll Eyes

I then took all of the wooden slats that give the box depth and covered them with layers of Mod Podge and pebbles as well as a ceiling decoration (held on by TONS of E6000) and even a glass orb.  the last step was to put the whole thing together...only to find out that a lot of the pebbles were in the way.  so I broke of as many as I could and took sandpaper to the ones that wouldn't budge.

after driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to make Toby and Moppet (the 2 dimensional people) dimensional, I got them glued into place before adding the pebbles.

my favorite part was the frame.  Mod Podge, tissue paper, Mod Podge, tissue paper, Mod Podge, tissue paper, Mod Podge, spray-on clear paint.  4 layers of Mod Podge and 3 of tissue paper.  it was a good thing I had that new jar of Mod Podge on hand.  but I did run out of tissue paper only to have my mom get a gift with purple and white tissue paper in the bag.  Grin  so I stole it.  why throw it when I can make use of it?

whatcha think?  Smiley
86  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Krafty_Karasu's ATC gallery on: March 24, 2010 09:39:14 PM
I've decided to start my own gallery (finally.  I mean I've only made a few dozen of these things.  Grin)

I actually got started with the Fabric ATC swap round 4.  I would think most people would start with paper and then do non-paper, but I chose to go backwards.  Tongue

all of these were made for others.  I would like to one day make my own to trade with others.  Smiley

for dramatrauma

for seamlessgem

for The Platypus Project (do take note, the Swastika was stolen by the Nazis for use by evil people.  the Swastika is actually a symbol of good used in Hinduism and Buddhism for example).

then I did move on to paper, with some non-paper mixed in.

for devilxkat

for audio-astrophysics

for MunLtStmpr (1) (made from polyclay, but for some unknown reason, the picture turned pink and green.  I had to make another from paper)

for MunLtStmpr (2)

for LindaP

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!  Especially since this is my first time organizing.  Go easy on me! Grin

Swap Details
The idea is to make one tiny craft item with a Twilight theme.  It should be physically small and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)  

  • You will receive only one partner.  
  • You may only send that partner ONE tiny Twilight craft - "extras" are not allowed.
  • All items must be 4"x4" or smaller.
How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, it would be nice if you would post in this thread at least once a week (you could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around).

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: (Remember to send your info to your organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)

Name of swap: OTTT Swap or One Tiny Twilight Thing Swap
Craftster username:

Your real name:

Anything else you'd like your partner to know?:

Here are a few links to help you out and maybe give you a few ideas to help you fill out the questionnaire and/or craft:

Please label Personal Messages (PMs) to organizer with title of "OTTT swap".  When you send, label message as "SENT: OTTT Swap". (don't forget to include your DC#).  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.  When you receive, label message as "RECEIVED: OTTT swap".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
  • SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
  • RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
  • FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not)  *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*  NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.

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

Thanks to pinkleo for offering to co-organize this with me, and allowing me to borrow her OTHPT Swap information to set this up (tweaked to fit the Twilight theme of course).  And of course, thank you to all of the previous OTT and Twilight organizers.
88  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / OTTT or One Tiny Twilight Thing on: March 10, 2010 03:07:05 PM
I'm in the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swap, and just today I thought "why not have a Twilight OTT swap?"  whatcha' think?

I would organize, but I'm too scared too.  Cheesy  part of my anxiety issues.  Tongue  I'm working on it.
89  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / where to find...(Mrs Cosmopilite stay away. don't ruin your surprise!!!!!) on: March 09, 2010 08:28:17 PM
you're not reading this are you, Mrs Cosmopilite?  I hope not.  I don't want you to ruin the surprise!!!

and mods, by all means move this to the correct place if this is not the right one.

HUBCAPS!?!?!?  where in the world can I find them??  I'd like new ones, but I can't seem to figure out where to buy them.  I'd like to buy them from a store, not a website since I'd like to have as much time as I can to work on the item (it's a license plate purse ok?  now you know why I need them Wink)  I've looked on auto parts websites for stores in my area, but they don't seem to have them.  so where are people getting them??
90  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Labyrinth needle book book on: January 18, 2010 02:51:42 PM
yes, book is in the title twice again.  Smiley  but that's what it is.  it's a needle book made to look like the Labyrinth book Sarah has in the movie.  you may be familiar with the New Moon book I made similar to this.  it's in my signature if you'd like to see that too.



it's an oversized needle book.  it has pages to put sewing needles in as well as a strip of Aida cloth on the inside cover for cross stitch/embroidery needles.

I really wish I would have saved the pictures, but I went through the movie and took screen captures of times when Sarah was showing the cover of the labyrinth book used in the movie.  it doesn't have little people on the front, but I knew I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to use them.  I searched for hours for them, I wasn't about to let them go to waste.  Grin
