What a wonderful idea!!! I tried to make out as many of the movie titles as I could; nice selection  Wink My own particular memories of these stores involved going down the video game aisles. I would have been tempted to make tiny cartridges in plastic cases.  Grin

Oh man I LOVE making these things, especially out of leftovers like you did. Practical and cheap. They look great!

Well I think it's good enough! I love the colors in it, and I'm a big fan of impressionism, so I love the way the water and sky turned out  Smiley
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Some Pagan altar crafts on: August 17, 2014 06:46:12 PM
So it's been a looooooooong time since I've posted anything on Craftster, but I had always hoped to come back. I got hit with some really serious issues a while back that I had to deal with (and am still dealing with, though they've died down a bit now), and the energy it took to deal with all of it and still take care of myself zapped everything out of me. In short, I was depressed, and found after it blew over that I was unable to create much of anything. I can't say I was surprised, but I let myself rest for a bit before deciding to kick my own butt back into gear, and so of course the first thing I turned to to help me do that was to my faith.

So these are the first two projects I've finished in a long time. I've always loved triptychs, and decided to put this one together to decorate my (already pretty crowded) altar. It was made from some cheap craft wood panels I found at Michaels, lots of paint, glitter, buttons, mirrors, and some ribbon. I'm thinking about adding some more glitter in a few places, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, so I'm going to wait a bit and think on it.

The middle panel:

Goddess panel:

You can't really tell in the photos, but I used metallic paint for some of it--the purple and gold colors, and I LOVE the way it gleams!

God panel:

I was going to outline both of them, but I like the way it looks without lining better.

In action:

I also did a pentagram to put up on the wall. Currently it's sitting above my craft desk, but I may move it in the future.

It felt really, really good to finish something after such a long break. Now the main problem I have is that I'm getting all these project ideas and have nowhere near enough time to finish them. Just like old times!

Wow, that's the sort of tedious project that draws attention and looks beautiful because of its simplicity--simple and intricate at the same time. Great job! I love it!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Pearl Clutcher Cardigan! *mature* on: February 22, 2013 08:30:13 AM
Ha! This is amazing. I wish there were a crochet version, though. I can't knit to save my life, and this project would just be way too...*puts on sunglasses*...hard. *YEEEAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!*

Yeah this is pretty much the best thing I've seen all week. Further proof that crocheters, and craftsters in general, are indeed an awesome bunch of people.  Grin Grin Grin

bec99, I hope they get there soon! If we lose them I'll be happy to make a replacement dotee for you and send it along.

I received my dotee from Noushi yesterday, and OH MY GOODNESS IT'S A CREEPER!

For those of you who aren't familiar, it's a baddie from the videogame Minecraft, which has eaten my life and is quite possibly the best thing ever:

MY LIFE IS COMPLETE NOW. I have a Minecraft dotee. Thank you so much, Noushi! I love it!
