1  Fun with poster board! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by psychonmemphis on: October 13, 2010 06:16:54 AM
I decided to have a nightmare before christmas themed halloween party but with the prices of licensed decor i was about to totally change it all when i remembered... I am a crafter! So what does one do with little extra money for decorations and little time left? They improvise! I have NEVER mad a silhouette before so i thought i would give it a go so i bought some black poster and free handed a design, cut it out and hung it on my door with tape Smiley i am pretty proud!
i need to reposition it for the leg but it is 3 parts total, zero, jack and sally, and the hill thing Smiley

also i made it black and white since my door is ugly but the cutouts are the color they are in real life

2  Breakup swap! in New Swap Theme Ideas by psychonmemphis on: October 08, 2010 08:13:11 AM
A lot of people including my self have mentioned either being dumped this month or dumping someone (it is still hard) so i propose that we do a breakup swap for those who have recently broken up with a significant other and need some cheering up!
examples of what can be made/sent (you can make anything that keeps the theme i just had some ideas): voodoo doll, something cute to wear, candy,tissue, "new bf/gf" doll, or just things that will lift your partners spirits! you do not have to have been broken up with this month if you are still not over them!

Finally here are the pictures of what the wonderful craftywerewolf sent  me!  Sorry it took so long to post the but i honestly did not know i even received the package until 3 days ago. I am sorry the pics are so bad but i was in a rush.
First up is some beautiful polymer clay pieces that i think are meant for a necklace so that is what i will make them into Smiley

Second is a coraline inspired notebook and a cat hair clip.

third is a decapitated (just had to say it lol) cat head (pin cushion?) with button eyes and a cat collar that i put on my jynxy (who is black btw) and i would have taken a picture of if my batteries had not died right after.

and lastly is an awesome shirt that i already wore and if fits perfectly, i can not even tell you how long i have been meaning to but a striped shit like this! i love it so much i am washing it to wear it again!

Thank you so much for a great swap!

I received from my wonderful partner yesterday! i love everything! i can not choose a favorite because it is all so great!
i got a very cute crocheted skeleton guy who will live happily in my room Smiley

a very well executed jack doll! i love hi so much!

4 cute note cards and gift tags that she made (you have mad skills!)

Then i got a jack notebook that i have already started using ( i love small notebooks! they are so handy to keep in your purse and this one is too cute) and a mayor badge from NBC that is too awesome for words!

And last a box full of jewelery! i had to show the box because it REALLY resembles santa claus from NBC

the jewelry i got is a sally bracelet (that fits my tiny wrist perfect!) and earring set, skeleton ear rings that look like the skeletons from corpse bride,ghost ear rings,bat ear rings, and funny tombstone ear rings!

ok i am finally posting the pictures!
i think i will post my favorite thing first, even though i love it all! this is my goth care bear, i asked for one in the questionnaire but never in a million years thought i would get one and if i did not this great! the (crocheting?) is unbelievably tight and he is too cute! he even has a little heart on his butt!

next is a rainbow brite inspired necklace and bracelet set which i will probably wear every day for all eternity! the clasp it too perfect!

then i opened another necklace made from ribbon! perfect for my halloween costume and every day!

the last crafted items are two hair bows off my wist, they are super awesome and will also go with my halloween costume and everyday, i can not express how great everything is.

lastly my cats got spoiled cotton! we are both cat lovers and my cats were so upset that i took the stuff and hid it until i got pictures but once i opened it, well you'll see...
