211  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Small shrine swap Rd 2 on: July 10, 2009 08:09:25 PM
I've fallen in love with shrines in all their shapes and forms and would love to organize a swap where we all can make shrines of our own creation. They can be made from any medium; paper, clay, mixed media. And everyone can list 5 themes that they'd like shrines to be built around.

Here's the link for a shrine swap done a while ago:

Anyone else interested???
212  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How do you cover the hinges on altered altoid tins? on: July 06, 2009 04:26:45 PM

The last time I tried my hand at altering an altoid tin the paint I applied around the hinger and where the lid overlaps the bottom piece ended up scraping off even after I put modge podge on it. What am I doing wrong? And how should I go about covering those areas up without my efforts being scraped off every time the tin is opened and closed?

Thanks  Wink
213  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / When your fingers get lonely make a friend... on: May 23, 2009 02:56:18 PM
A dear friend of my is leaving our mutual workplace so as a good-bye gift (one among others) I made her some finger puppets; they're more for her to play with her 3-yr-old son but I think she'll love them just the same  Smiley

Meet Dragon and Bunny...

...Bee and Bird...

...Elephant, Dog, and Panda

My favorite I think is Dog, Panda, or Dragon, I can't decide. They're all made from felt and sewn up with embroidery floss. I definitely think I'll have to make more in the future as presents. They're just too cute!  Grin

214  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Octopus Earrings on: May 23, 2009 02:51:34 PM
I love octopus tentacles and just the look of them and have finally found a reason to make these earrings. Well sort of...I made them for the OWS46 and now I have to make another pair for me!  Cheesy Made from sculpey clay.

215  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dia de los muertos all day long on: May 15, 2009 03:35:44 AM
This is a combo of a bunch of boards so rather than put it in the wrong one I figured go with miscellaneous  Grin

This is a dia de los muertos plaque I made for missmuffcake for the ows46 which I love so much. The skull is made out of clay and foil, the wings were hand drawn with sharpie and then watercolored in, and the background is layered papers, all covered with a nice layer of modge podge.

Now I'm hooked on day of the dead stuff.  Cheesy
216  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / chunk-a-dunk: the chunky page story on: April 24, 2009 05:29:19 AM
I hosted the most recent round of chunky page swap and as everyone has received my pages, I wanted to share my work here. I loved all the different topics  Smiley

This was done with fabric paint and watercolors to achieve a textured outline with the color filing in. I really love how it turned out.

My first attempt at the zetti style. I think I'm in love  Grin I used sharpies, tissue paper, a page out of a french book, clip art, etc.

I found some butterfly wings at the dollar store and ran with this one. I love how the buttons make up the body. Another zetti-esque attempt.

This was made from a couple of pages of Hebrew text glued together and then drawn on with sharpie and colored markers. Then I cut out the leaves, birds, and hearts and glued them on. Modged podged like nobody's business and voila! The only thing I'd redo is that the text under the tree that reads "all you need is love" is hard to notice and I didn't think to add it until after I modged podged so it didn't show up very well. Oh well. Live and learn.

This was a fun one to make. Watercolors and sharpies with some clip art wings for fun. I also used some netting for the border and some swan feathers I found in the neighborhood.

Comments and crit welcomed! I can always improve and I mean to  Cheesy Thanks!
217  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / How do I give feedback?? on: March 25, 2009 03:22:57 PM
I'm a first time organizer and have my first swapper needing feedback for a completed swap. I went to the feedback form to enter in her feedback (positive) but it isn't showing up on her profile. What am I doing wrong?

I just got into making ATCs and now I'm hooked. Here's a bunch I did over the weekend.

219  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Ongoing ATC Swap on: March 16, 2009 06:32:59 PM
I was exploring the ATC boards recently and stumbled upon the Ongoing ATC Swap and thought how brilliant it would be to do that again.


It would operate like the other Ongoing swaps where it would be in chain style and you would be restricted to 10 unfulfilled claims at a time. Each person would post between 3 - 10 themes to pick from, and the claimer would pick a claim and then list their own themes.

Anyone interested? I wouldn't be able to organize for a while, but if anyone else wants to I'd love to jump on board. Otherwise, I'll probably wanna jump start this swap in May sometime.
220  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swappers not communicating, next step on: March 15, 2009 10:30:08 AM
I am currently organizing a swap that has two participants who have not posted at all or only once in the discussion and I'm growing concerned that they may be flakers. I've sent PMs to these individuals as well as their partners to see if there is any communication going on that I'm not aware of. I have also asked their partners to hold off on sending their packages until further notice.

If they turn out to be flakers, what should I do with the partners who have fulfilled their obligations to the swap? Would their feedback be taken off and they can keep their swap packages?

I'm still waiting to hear from the silent swappers but I just want to be cautious and take preemptive measures to avoid flakers for this swap.
