21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stuffy unicorn head... on: February 01, 2014 12:22:59 AM
I'm just not sure where to put this.  Lol. I made this for my best friend for Christmas.  Its a quilted, stuffed and mounted unicorn head.   Grin. She named her Mardi and she hangs in her bedroom and wears all of her Mardi gras beads and feathers.
I made up the pattern for this as I couldn't find a "severed unicorn head" pattern anywhere.  Lol. I think next on my list is going to be a dragon head.   Grin
22  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Sleeping baby dragon. on: February 01, 2014 12:13:58 AM
I made myself a tiny gold sleeping baby dragon some time ago, and my sons fiance has always tried to talk me out of it lol.... so I made her one of her own for Christmas.  I had such a hard time packing him up and sending him away...I really loved him.  But she loves him too.  He's made from polymer clay with sequin scales.  Hes sleeping inside a snow globe to keep him safe from my grandson.

Yup.  It's a gel polish that is cured under a UV light or an LED light.  Love that stuff.  I have the attention span of a squirrel, so it's really nice that when my mani is done, my polish is dry and I can move on to my next adventure.  *L* 
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Revamped an old clock into something fabulous! on: December 10, 2013 11:27:50 PM
I have been spending way too much time at the local thrift stores.  I have become obsessed with finding crappy things that I can bring home and make fabulous.  So, my most recent find was this:

It was missing the clock face and two of the wooden rays.  I knew for the low low price of 3.99 I could make it better!

So, THIS is what it became!!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  It was repainted with acrylic paints an sealed with Mod Podge.  I took apart an old clock we had laying around for the clock guts. (the body of the old clock was used for a day of the dead shrine that I'll post later).

I have been working on nail art over gel manicures. This one is done with a very small brush and a variety of Gelish colors.  The black outline is acrylic paint.  Then the whole design is topped off with Gelish Top It Off.

I'm amazed! Is it hard to do?  Does it take a lot of skill and time?  Debs Smiley

It doesn't take too much time...and the skill comes the more you do it.  I started out making sort of round-ish beads.  *L*  My first bunch of "beads" were lopsided, strangely colored, sometimes burned, sometimes cracked.  But I still have them.

Because I'm using MAPP Gas (about 8 dollars for a small can from Home Depot), and a HotHead torch head (about 45 dollars) it was relatively inexpensive to get started.  I spent about 25 dollars on a bundle of glass rods (COE 104 or soft glass). 

I absolutely LOVE making beads.  It's very...um...personal, I guess.  I put on my earbuds with music I love (well, only one earphone so that I can hear the torch in case it starts making strange noises *L*) and start makin' stuff.

A few more beads I've made for the craft fair.  Things are coming along quite nicely!   Grin

I'm working on a Hothead torch and MAPP gas.
29  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Raise a tiny glass and have a tiny toast. Lampwork bead on: May 07, 2012 01:39:45 PM
Ok....I gotta say, I am pretty proud of this particular bead.   Grin  My husband and I are putting together a whole lot of crafted items for a craft fair.  It's mostly stuff he makes, but I said I'd make some earrings and pendants for him to bulk up his inventory.
As per my usual, when I'm making a bead, my head is usually about two or three beads ahead of what I'm working on.  *L*  I was working on encasing something in clear and wondered to myself, "self, I wonder if you could make a little rootbeer float or a little beer mug?" 

So, here it is.  I haven't cleaned out the release yet, and I still have to make it's little mate for it to be a matched set for earrings, but I couldn't wait to share.   Grin

30  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Halloween Zombie Nail art on: April 15, 2012 06:26:42 PM
These were from October of 2011...but I've been so very lazy about posting!  *L*  We took our kids to Silverwood in October which converts over to Scarywood...it's crawling with zombies and creepy clowns and roller coasters that run backwards.  There are also several haunted houses.  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have creepy bloody zombie nails...cause that's how I roll!   Grin
