131  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Playhouse Disney Swap on: June 25, 2009 08:22:02 PM
I know there are always disney swaps, but what about a playhouse disney swap? Like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Bunnytown, Ooh and Aah, Choo Choo Soul, Happy Monster Band, Teach my Alligator Manners, Imagination Movers.. etc.. http://tv.disney.go.com/playhouse/allshows/
I can't count on all my finger and toes the mornings when I'm running late for work, or trying to get dinner in the crockpot, that these shows have saved my sanity, and my daughter's patience! And, I like them all as well. Another thing is, Lily-Anne's favorite show is Handy Manny, but all the clothes we can find for it are so boyish. No problems here dressing her in all blue/green, but with her short hair, people can still mistake her for a boy if we take her out in her Handy Manny clothes! I think it would be a lot of fun to make some stuff for kids (or adults! come on they have My Friends Tigger and Pooh) centered completely around Playhouse Disney shows.
I will totally organize if we do this swap in the fall because I want to get some more swaps under my belt before I take on organizer. But if someone else wants to organize it sooner, I will help in any way I can!
132  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Top Hat Hairclip on: June 23, 2009 06:17:45 AM
For the Quick and Easy Senders Choice swap, I made a couple of hairclips for kitschkween inspired by some of her Etsy favs. I was so afraid they were going to be a little over the top, and she wouldn't like them, but she wore the tophat to work last night! Here are some pics of the clips I made, and the action shots she posted.

133  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Toddler Nap Pillow on: June 21, 2009 04:01:59 PM
Okay, so this probably should go under some kind of category like "So Easy a Caveman Could Do It" but this is the first time I've used a sewing machine,  so I'm posting it!  Cheesy 
We have hardwood floors and my daughter is always pulling blankets off the couch to lay on on the floor with when she feels like chilling out for a few minutes. So I thought I would like to make her a pillow for the floor.

All I used was 2 pillowsham cases, and 2 pillows. I had to sew one of the the cases so it was 3 inches thinner because the pillow was a little narrow, Thats where the flap came from. Then I just sewed the 2 pillow cases together, inserted pillows, tied the ends, and viola!
She was chilling out on it until I grabbed the camera, then she started dragging it all over the place!
134  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How do I transfer a pattern? on: June 19, 2009 07:43:15 PM
I cannot draw to save my life, but want to do embroidery... How do I transfer the patterns I want to stitch onto fabrics? Besides using fabric paper, I don't know what to do.
135  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Needlepoint Bead Embelishment on: June 10, 2009 12:28:43 PM
For the Easy Peasy Swap, my partner liked dark greens, and one of her favorite themes was leaves. I decided to try something I've never tried before!

I found some of this fabric, and stretched it over some canvas, and stitched over some of the veins with green floss, and other parts stitched on beads.

It looked so much cooler in my head, but I think I'm still pretty proud of it.
136  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Re-using VHS Tapes on: June 03, 2009 07:41:09 PM
Okay, I have a TON of VHS tapes that I can't even GIVE away at yardsales... I've been thinking a lot lately, what can I do with them? There is a cool table made from VHS tapes on here, but what about the actual tape inside?
137  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Cardboard Furniture Challenge on: May 17, 2009 01:15:37 PM
I've been inspired by a few posts on here to make some cardboard furniture for my parent's room (they are moving here from across the country in a few days, and our guest room is in our unfinished basement). I think that a cardboard furniture challenge would be a great way to introduce a lot of people who aren't on this bandwagon yet, how inexpensive and fun cardboard furniture can be!

Here are some examples from other Craftsters.
138  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Encyclopedias on: May 03, 2009 04:14:14 PM
I recently rescued a set of 1983 encyclopedia's from the curb, and have no idea what to do with them! Initially I tried to call the local schools see if the art departments would want them, but they did not. so... now my husband wants to either see me do something with them, or he wants them out of the garage! Any suggestions?
139  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Decoupaged Children's Shelves (tons of pictures) on: May 03, 2009 03:40:32 PM
I decoupaged shelves for my daughter's room. I wish I had taken pictures before they were done/hung up, but I forgot!
I collected a lot of children's picture books that had missing pages, or crayon markings in them, for free from yardsales/thrift stores/friends, cut out the cute pictures and modge podged them to these ugly unfinished/institution white/and old shelves I found most for a dollar or two. I also painted parts hot pink, or modge podged ribbons on them. All the pictures are from children's books, except for the ones of fairies, those were giant stickers from the dollar store, and by putting the modge on top, I'm pretty sure they're never going to fall off.

These Disney figures my mom actually made for me at a pottery studio when i was little!

140  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 38 ENTRIES / Garbegg Can on: May 02, 2009 08:05:15 PM

Had an unfinished wood garbage can for my daughter's room,that I finally got around to decorating. Spraypainted it purple, then started cutting and attaching eggs. I had a lot of fun doing this!

Originally I was going to make a mural with the eggs in the hallway, so all of my friends started buy up all the Easter Eggs they could find on clearance. I have over 1000 eggs now!!!

So I guess as soon as she gets bored of that.... I'll probably become known as the egg girl on craftster.
