Very nice so far! It might be neat if you poured some resin over the water area, to make it look like clear water with the blue underneath. I'm not sure how you'd get it to stay in just that area, though. You'd probably have to put up a temporary border with plastic salvaged from something...

Anyway, it looks very nice! I remember doing a project like this once for class. It was an air-boat that floated of its own accord. I made a boat from model wood, with big wings coming out the sides (paper in between, so they kind of looked like bat wings), and then a net attached, with a HUGE balloon in the net, filled with helium. The book I read was weird, okay?

Anyway, the next project I made didn't get nearly as good a grade.

That's a very good idea! I'm not sure what type of fastening to use, I figure there are a lot of things you don't want to put in the microwave, but I guess tie straps would work fine, like in those heat packs you can tie to your back.Mmmm...heat packs Cheesy

How about making another pouch that you can insert these into? Make it velcro or zip shut, with elastic on it or whatever fastener you want. Then, you take the inside pouch and heat it up, and just pop it in the pouch and strap it on when it comes out of the microwave.

224  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: A nifty little hammock bed for the rats? I think so. on: January 12, 2009 07:19:50 AM
As soon as I saw this, I immediately thought "That's really cute and nice for them to use until they chew it down."

I lost a NICE pair of sandals to pet-rat-chewing, among other things.

When I had my rat, she was allergic to all kinds of bedding, and I definitely didn't want to try and give her cedar, so I actually took old clothing scraps and cut up for her to use as bedding, along with some old newspaper and magazines that I tore into strips. For the litter box area (or the catch tray underneath), I used Yesterday's News cat litter from Petco. It's recycled and not nearly as dusty as the real thing. I also used Yesterday's News with my ferret when I had him. I don't think it actually works very well for cats, but it's great for rodents.

Ah, the days of small rodents as pets. Now I'm just down to a dog and a cat.

I work in an IT office, and I come across tons of old computer equipment. So naturally, I had to find something to do with at least SOME of the stuff.

This has turned out to be a very cute, petite necklace. The pendant is a recycled volume knob from a broken CD burner. It's rather neat to play with; it still turns up or down. So if you're bored, you can pretend to turn the volume of people's voices down around you.

The chain the pendant is hanging on is actually recycled cat 5e cable. I've taken out the green pair to use as a nice accent to the pendant. A friend has soldered the clasps on.

My little Sister-in-Law was nice enough to model it for me.

Neat! I'd actually never seen one of these before. It's nice to not have come across an "I can't tell you" before I did.
227  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Zipper Brooches on: January 12, 2009 06:17:00 AM
Very cute! I love the look. You almost wouldn't know they were zippers to begin with.
228  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Can you tell what this is supposed to be? on: January 12, 2009 06:13:30 AM
I immediately thought it was a baby chick.

Perhaps the addition of a small eye could help convince others who don't see it? I'm not sure, aside from making a beak that actually sticks out over the side a bit.

Anyway, it looks like a bird to me. A little odd bird, but a bird nonetheless.

Those are really nicely done! I love all of the colors, and you took great pictures to show them off. I think I may have to try this out, myself.

Does a hair blow-dryer work the same as a heat-gun?

Very nice! Your first experimentation went MUCH better than mine--trust me, my stuff looks a lot worse.

I especially love the ones you did with the backings. The wings and the leaves with green background stand out to me the most. Excellent for a first time!
