11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / OTPFT (One Tiny Pink Floyd Thing)?? on: July 15, 2011 10:04:39 AM

I've been itching to listen to Floyd for a while, but lately it seems like the only way I'm able to get into anything is if something new is coming out, OR if I'm crafting for it, so I thought, what the heck?!

Here's a discription (shamelessly borrowed from the OTHPT swaps)

Swap Details
The idea is to make one tiny craft item with a Pink Floyd 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 Pink Floyd 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!

I haven't organized before, but I'd be willing to give it a shot if anyone was interested in say August? Anyone down?
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jewelry Solutions. on: January 19, 2011 01:44:31 PM
I'm sorry if I put this in the wrong spot.  Embarrassed

Anyways, thanks to the lovely people on this site I've began to accumulate quite a bit of jewelry though swaps, and figured it was about time that I figured out some way to organize them so I came up with these! Also, sorry my photographing skills suck.

First off we have the earring holder. I wanted to use this as a picture frame, but I broke half the glass while I was spray painting it. Ugh. So my dad epoxied some nylon screen in the holes for an earring holder Smiley

Next I found a lovely tutorial on how to make a ring/bracelet/necklace holder from a piece of wood and a dowling rod (found here: http://thirtyhandmadedays.com/2010/04/guest-post-nancy-from-my-blonde-ambitions/ )

And here's everything with some of my stuff on it. They were super easy to do, cheap, and they look great!

Thanks for looking!
13  UNITED STATES / Iowa / Looking for Charms in the Ames/Des Moines Area. on: January 08, 2011 09:52:05 PM
Okay, so it was my nieces birthday on Friday and I told her that I would make her a charm bracelet with all the things she likes in it, only I'm having a hard time finding a varity of charms. I have looked at the Hobby Lobby in ames and have gotten all that suit her there, but I have no idea where to find them other wise, and HL online only has the same as in the stores, and buying them online is WAY too expensive! Anyone out there know of any places that sell charms for like $2-3?
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Odd Thomas Swap? on: May 10, 2010 01:01:45 PM
I was wondering if anyone else would be up for an Odd Thomas swap? I could organize in like late June/July. Nothing big, maybe 3 points of any combination? And maybe a three week to a month crafting time?
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Angela and Hodgins-Bones on: April 08, 2010 08:06:24 PM
Okay, so, I think I'm crazy! For the Bones Rd 2 Swap, I decided to cross stitch a photograph my my partner ceemonster's favorite characters, Angela and Hodgins. I had to take a day off of work to finish it on time, but I did it! It was a small celebration for me, lol. Anyways, here it is, with and without a frame:

C&C Welcome.

Oh, and about the 100th episode from tonight, I'm not going to lie, I cried a little.
16  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first baby blankie! on: April 05, 2010 04:28:01 PM
So, my future sister-in-law had a baby back in February, and I had started making a baby blankie for her on the 4th of July, just after she told us, and I didn't get done until a week before the baby shower on the 9th of January! Needless to say, I got really tired of doing it, lol, but it turned out great, but oh no! I forgot to get pictures! That's okay though, because she changed her name last minute so I need to rip out the one there and change the middle name.

C&C welcome Smiley
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Unbirthday gift. on: February 12, 2010 02:18:33 PM
So my friends husband is throwing her an unbirthday party today, and since I'm not attending (other plans) I decided to make her a gift. She loves all things Alice, so I thought an embroidered/crayoned American McGee's Alice Cheshire Cat with a quote would be something she would like. What do you guys think?

18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Handfasting Ropes. on: July 07, 2009 06:45:34 PM
Okay, so my best friend approached me with something MAJOR last week. She asked me to make the rope for her upcoming wedding, where her and her to-be are being handfasted. Eek! So after a little research this is what I came up with:

Here's the full shot:

The ribbons are somewhere around three feet long.

The top pendant that all of the ribbons are tied to:

And the bells at the bottom:

Um...Sorry. I didn't mean to get the boyfriend in the background Tongue.

So, I tied two knots to the pendant and the bells, and melted the edges down. The wedding is September 4th. That should hold, right?

I just hope they like it. They're colors are red, black, and silver, but I wanted to do the more traditional colors. The meanings of the ropes are:

Red: passion, strength, lust, fertility
Orange: encouragement, attraction, kindness, plenty
Yellow: charm, confidence, joy, balance
Green: finances, fertility, charity, prosperity, health
Blue: tranquility, patience, devotion, sincerity
Purple: Power, piety, sanctity, sentimentality
Black: strength, wisdom, vision, success
White: purity, concentration, meditation, peace
Gray: neutrality, canceling, balance
Pink: unity, honor, truth, romance, happiness
Brown: earth, grounding, talent, telepathy, home
Silver: treasure, values, creativity, inspiration
Gold: energy, wealth, intelligence, longevity
19  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / White Glass on: June 05, 2009 06:51:33 PM
Okay, so this might be a dumb question, but I aquired a spice rack recently that only had half it's labels, and the bottles are white glass. What happens when you put etching cream on white glass? Like, how does it turn out? Can you tell it's there easily or does it make no difference?
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Chuck's Crazy Cage. on: May 12, 2009 06:31:10 PM
Okay, so it's not really crazy so much as much, much bigger than his old one. Tongue. So much bigger, so, that we couldn't get it in the living room, so we're just going to have to rearrange the house around it, LoL.

My dad (who primarily built it) went way above and beyond what I would have done. For example: He put a railing and foot holds on the ramp. I would have just leaned a piece of wood up there. He also made fancier doors than I would have. The third shelf (for storage of food, books, extra toys, treats, ect.) is supposed to have some doors on it, too, but I got impatient on the fourth day of putting the beast together and decided that it could wait. Smiley.

Anyways, onto the pictures.

Here's the front, pardon the mess:

The first floor, containing his bed, toys, bunny, and litterbox, aka thing for him to move out of the way when he needs to go to the bathroom and eat the hay out of, no matter how much of his poop I put in there:

The bottom floor, containing his ramp, water bottle, and hammock that he isn't quite sure about:

And a shot with me to show you what a monster this thing is Tongue.

Oh, and sorry for the color choice (the store called it 'Nimble Blue' but we always called it 'Smurf Blood Blue') but seeing as one layer of paint on the whole cage (not the back, or the shelf) was about 3/4 a gallon and I had run out of funds, the paint from my old bedroom started to look pretty good, LoL.
