1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Crafts to do with a broken thumb? on: July 11, 2005 12:34:53 PM
The 10 yr old girl I baby sit for broke her left thumb (she's a lefty) the other day. I have been doing crafts with her before the incident, and would like to continue, because her Mom says that is the highlight of her day, and that the girl is so proud of her creations. What could we make? We made packing tape comic book wallets before she broke her thumb. Today, we made paper bead necklaces. She loved both, but had a tough time with the scissors on today's project. Any ideas?
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 3 ENTRIES / A Tribute to the B-52's on: June 30, 2005 09:28:10 AM
This is my tribute to my favorite band, inspired by the song "Love Shack" http://www.lyricsxp.com/lyrics/l/love_shack_b52_s.html  is a site with the lyrics.

I took a perfume box, clay people (made them with gingerbread men cookie cutters, then added hair) poster paint, and some fabric, and made this diaramma.

That is what the real band looks like!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Comic book character costume idea? on: June 22, 2005 05:25:51 PM
I wanted to go as a super heroine/villainess this year for Halloween , but don't have the body for a bodysuit or leotard. Maybe I can go as a non-superhero character? But I wanto go as someone people will reconize, and it would be hard to go as Mary Jane Watson or  Gwen Stacey unless I had a boyfriend to go as spiderman (which I currently lack). Can anyone help me? Thanks!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / What to do with outdated Enclyclopedias? on: June 21, 2005 06:34:00 PM
I have  a mostly there set of children's enclyclopedias from the 1970's (missing two or three volumes). The pictures and photos are darling, and very dated (I esp. love the articles on computers, space travel, and modern clothing-you can tell they are '70s) Some articles and pictures you can tell are made for children in the '70s, they are very "kidified" and they gloss over stuff. The section on adolecence is hilarious! But what could I do with them? I am growing tired of making bookmarks with them, (althouth I love  the Sigmund Freud & Pavlov bookmark and pencil holder set I made for my phychology major sister).  I was thinking decoupage, but I don't have any ideas on what to cover with pictures or what theme to use. Help, anyone?
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Graduation Gift for guy friend on: June 17, 2005 05:30:18 PM
I did a search on graduation gifts, and didn't find many ones for guys. My friend is not going to college right away, so a survival kit would not be good. He like video games, wierd humor (think Monty Python, and Homestarrunner.com kinda humor) He likes science fiction shows (which i know nothing about) He also likes indie music and death metal for music. I wanna make him some thing special! can anyone please help?

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Knight in shining armor, pirate in... shining peg-leg? on: April 04, 2005 12:57:33 PM

Here are my lovely creations made from a fisher-price castle knight and an arcade-prize pirate. I used an awl to poke a hole in them, then strung them up. Let me k now what you think! (I may be selling them, and am open to suggestions)
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Toy animals on necklaces on: April 04, 2005 12:49:02 PM

There they are! (sorry the photos arn't the best, the cords got cut off, but they really are long enough for a necklace, and the turtle ends in a toggle clasp, the gator with a barrel clasp.) I threaded some plastic animals onto a black wax linen cord. I am thinking of selling these and my other jewelry made from small toys, so if anyone can give me tips on how much I should sell them for, or how to improve upon them (just keep in mind my lack of camera skills), then that would be greatly appreaciated, too.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do I attach handles properly? on: March 21, 2005 05:18:21 PM
Okay, i did a search and still couldn't find the answer. I make purses and people tell me I should sell them. I would, accept the handles are always falling off! I hand sew, (I am sewing machine illiterate) and don't like those metal grommet things, or bamboo handles. (I know i'm  being picky). Most of my pocket books are fabric (denim, fakefur, canvas-type material, and other thick, but not too thick to hand sew fabrics). I usually  just sew a strip of whatever fabric I am working with to the bag, but I am using the wrong material/method.
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bubba:a redneck monster on: March 08, 2005 05:43:14 AM
     His arms are open to give you a hug!

This is Bubba, my redneck monster. I sewed him from fuzzy orangy pink material. I made his farmer jeans from an  acid-washed denim remnent, his hair is yarn, and his hat is a mini straw hat that was laying around the bucket I keep my crafts in. Oh, yeah, his bandana is red fleece.
