I just finished up a bag.  since I had the pictures already uploaded i thought i'd share'em :

(my camera didnt like me yesterday - the bag is a vibrant true green like the inside shot of the pocket/lining below):

The inside: ( i added a little unicorn button to the pocket ..
The unicorn is machine stitched and by far the hardest thing i've ever stitched 'round!!!

Click Lights Wall Art

These are just plain 'ole dollar store push lights
I live in a duplex so I needed to find a crafty way to achieve a soft light without taking up too much space .

I went to the hardware store and purchased some aluminum sheeting.   It comes in various textures and sizes -(this one has a nice texture, but my camera doesn't pick it up).  I ended up cutting the heighth down a little bit with tin nippers.  (optional if you're picky like me and everything must fit perfect!)

I got out my trusty ole' glue gun and glued 3 heavy duty magnets to the back.  

( and yes! if you use enough glue they will stay! )
These lights have been hanging for a couple months now

I advise 3 magnets because the batteries make the light heavy.

I didnt even nail this in my walls.  I used 3M adhesive pull strips, and all these lights are heavy - so this stuff did the trick great!

The lights can be *pushed* in different diagonal or across patterns for variety!
( I only pictured 1 light lit in hopes to take a good picture without glare)!


ps if you cannot view the pictures for some reason - i have the diy also on my website http://www.fashioncompassion.com

Gummi Bear Charm Bracelet!

I made this bracelet with real gummi bears and silver artistic wire...i made all the jump rings and clasps 'n all.. if this doesn't suit your fancy -- any link style bracelet should work.

I let the bears get nice 'n stale (about 2months)..and then I dipped them in Polyurethane and let them dry a few hours (* i repeated this step twice)

TIP: get a foam square and some extra wire.. stick a piece of wire into the gummy's head before dipping.. after dipping.. insert the wire into the foams square (now the gummy bear will be upside down)..

this helps make drying less messy...! and you will also get a nice even coverage this way!

after they are dried ..just remove the wire from the head and you now have a hole on top of the head.

use eyepins (or make them yourself with wire)..and insert them into the head with some crazy glue. Now the little bears are instant charms you can attach to your bracelet!

....really simple project...hope I explained it oK! ;)
55  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Lite Brite coffee table! on: August 03, 2003 03:56:47 AM
My finished lite-brite table.. the instructions to make it are from Readymade magazine http://www.readymademag.com issue 6. (ETA:  Readymade instructions are further down in this post)

It was hard to get a good picture of the table lit all up because I have a crappy dig cam..

I painted it china-town orange & mustard-yellow, I textured the paint by painting the orange first -- and then taking saran wrap and sponging the yellow - the picture doesn't really show the texture - but it looks reallly mod in person...

if anybody is going to make this table - make sure to ck out issue 7 - .. readymade had made mistakes in the cutting measurements!!!

--also I wouldn't advise getting the litebrite pegs from hasbro.com because the only pack offered has "power pegs" which are 4 pegs stuck together (for easier litebrite picture making) .. and this will not work with a peg board.. I had a whole bunch of these pegs I couldn't use :-/
