21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Puppy card. on: February 10, 2010 03:36:10 PM
I am not a fan of buying cards with something somebody I don't know wrote on it. But I do like giving letters or notes to my friends when the occasion calls for it. So I started making my own cards.

This one was for a friend's birthday. She has a Basset Hound, so I sort of went with that theme.

There was another one --a chubby purple teddy bear-- but I forgot to take a picture before giving it away. Oops!

Making it was as simple as it looks, yet all questions and comments are welcome!

Edit: I'm trying to straighten up the pictures, but still can't figure out how!  Huh

I love the look of this jacket. A bit dystopian, maybe? All the little details are pretty amazing.
Awesome work.
23  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A knitting needle gets its wish! (Fairy wand) on: February 10, 2010 07:45:03 AM
Yes, it took me all this time (from October till now) to download the pictures in my camera. How awful is that?

Ok, so last Halloween I decided I would be a fairy so I could wear a dress I don't get to wear too often. I lazed on the wings and bought a pair of very cute pixie wings. But when it came to the wand, I felt I could do much better with no money and just a few minutes of my time. And this is the result:

I basically dressed up a knitting needle. You can see its partner next to it for comparison. Everything I used, I already had laying around in my room. I pretty much save every bit of ribbon that comes my way. Since the needle was a lovely metallic blue, I let it show through the white ribbon I wrapped around it.

For the star, I used white felt (not a good idea but that was what I had), and yellow and gold acrylic paint.

And that's a lonely earring that lost its pair. I used some gold ribbon here so the golden star wouldn't be so random in the midst of the other colors.

My inspiration came from this one right here: http://www.make-your-own-baby-stuff.com/fairy-wand.html

It was super easy to make, so I hope this helps someone next Halloween!

From all the shopping bags for this challenge, yours is the one I wish I owned! All the details are so pretty, the size is perfect, and the sturdy bottom is a very smart choice.

Oh, no!!! Like others, I am in pain for all the awesome umbrellas that ended up in the trash. My friend chucked one with a really cool print only last week!

Now I know what's happening to the next broken umbrella I find.

It looks like the ideal summer dress! It just looks so comfy.

Aw these are so cute! I thought they were poly clay from the thumbnail, you did a really good job on these.

I thought that too!

The button cookies are so clever and appropriate for the occasion. Smiley They're great.

Lady Giggleswick is so stinking cute! And you're very talented. I've always wanted to learn to make prints with that kind of detail.
