1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Unique Name Swap Round 3 on: December 18, 2008 08:04:06 PM
Upon recent searching in the archives I came across the Unique Name Swap 2.  I think it would be great if we could get a round 3 going!
Here is the link to the first round: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100353.0
Here is a link to round 2: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181062.0

My daddy named me Corinna, after his favorite Dean Martin song.... and after some research I discovered that my name was only popular in America during the 50's-70's.  Yes, I'm aging myself! 

The whole time I was growing up I yearned for something, anything, even one of those little nameplates for your door, with my name on it.  Nothing, never, nowhere!!!   [sigh]

And then there's the spelling, corina, corrina, corrinna, corena, coreina, carina [this one I like!]  I've even been called katrina!  Which is a really nice name BTW.

Do you have a wonderful name that deserves to adorn some hand-made craftiness?  Whether it's a unique name, spelling or a common name that wants a little hand-made love, jump on in and lets see if we can get another round going!!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Sleeveboard Gets Facelift! on: October 28, 2008 10:33:35 AM
So I'm not sure how old my sleeveboard is, found it in a thrift shop a few years back.  It's been in my stash of projects to tackle ever since I brought it home!  Yeah, how sad is that?!! 
I found an awesome ironing board cover on ebay.  Stain and scorch resistant and came with a wonderful pad.  There was enough fabric to do both sides of the sleeve board and still cover my small counter top ironing board.  Haven't stitched that one up yet, but I'll add pics when it's done...

The original horsehair? padding
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Audrey Hepburn Earrings on: October 28, 2008 09:44:51 AM
These beautiful earrings were on someone's Wist.  I wanted to make them for her but I don't know what they are made of, polymer clay?  That's not one my specialties so I made them from fabric instead!  I also changed them to mirror image.
They turned out so nice I might have to make myself a pair as I love anything Audrey...

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Panda Sleep Mask on: October 28, 2008 09:37:35 AM
I made a Panda sleep mask for someone based on one she had in her Wist.  I found a site that had kids crafts and one was a full face panda mask.  I loosely used this as my template.  The black side is silk, so it's soft on the face!  The white is satin.

My son wanted to model for this pic!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Please be kind, my1st project w/o a pattern..My 2nd project ever!! on: October 28, 2008 09:26:44 AM
Once upon a time I knitted a pair of slippers...the only knitting project of my life!  10 years later they are sorely lacking in warmth as there are holes in the bottom of both!

So, not remembering how I made them, I opened up one and proceeded to count.  I am so thoroughly proud of my second pair, since I had no pattern and no recollection of one, and the new pair turned out pretty darn good.  Maybe I can do this knitting thing after all and might try my needles at something else...

Comments, suggestions of other projects to try, and constructive criticism all welcome and appreciated!!

These are the old ones. If you look close you can see the holes! 

These fit real nice!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My Dream Garden-Cross stitch-How to display? on: July 11, 2008 02:25:35 PM
If I could have my dream garden, this is what it would look like!  I spent about a year, on and off, working on this.  It is a counted cross stitch and the finished size is 11" X 17". 
I would love any suggestions on the best way to display it!  I can sit and stitch but then I don't know what to do with the results!  How many can I hang on the wall!  I thought of a pillow, but I would hate for it to get stained or "loved" by my cat! 
Any ideas?  Thanks!

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cross-stitch to honor my son on: July 07, 2008 09:37:57 AM
This is a cross-stitch I did after I first found out I was pregnant with my son.  After 2 miscarriages and being over 35 he was a true miracle.  Hope you like it!

Hope I did this right...my first time!
