1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Haunted Birdhouse on: September 15, 2011 08:20:12 PM
This was my entry for the AlphaStamps Halloween Giveaway. I didn't win sadly.

This is just a 99cent birdhouse from Michaels, covered in paper, distressed, inked, and embellished with some fall leaves and mini pumpkins.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Bertram de Gaulle, Scientist on: September 08, 2011 02:28:10 PM
So I have absolutely adored the elephants recently posted by rackycoo. I picked some up from Michaels and they sat around for a bit before inspiration struck.

Meet Bertram de Gaulle, scientist!

Bertram's good eye

Bertram's bum (and a closer look at his flying machine)

And here is one where he looks a bit sinister

I was fooling around with some Tim Holtz distress inks and found I had accidentally made tags for the four elements!





And because Air turned out to be my favorite, here are some close-ups!

Thanks for looking!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mexican Protection Shrine on: September 03, 2011 06:18:30 PM
I got a couple of these awesome Mexican Protection Packets from Sacred Kitcsh Studio and decided to use an old mint tin to create a little shrine.

This is the lid

The back and side

And the inside.

Hope y'all like it!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Lady Earrings on: August 28, 2011 02:36:35 PM
My mom gave me a pair of her old earrings. These big (1.5in) pink squares from the eighties. So, I jazzed them up with some stamps and gold leaf.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Harry Potter Slytherin Trunk on: August 28, 2011 02:18:27 PM
So I found this little wood box at Value Village and thought the design looked like a snitch.

So I took it home and made a Slytherin trunk for a quidditch player!

All the items in the trunk

The items outside of the trunk

Close up of Broom & Wand

Close up of the Quill in its ink pot, the parchment, and a divination book

Close up of the potions supplies

The bottle on the right has oolong tea and the one on the left contains a rock centipede and two black beetles I found in the yard.

Hope you like it!
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Spring Cleaning Supply Swap on: April 17, 2011 10:35:13 PM
Is anyone interested in doing a little spring cleaning swap? I know that I have tons of stuff I've accumulated over the winter and it is always nice to see it go to someone who will use it. So what do you say?
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My First t-shirt pillows on: June 30, 2009 08:07:11 PM
So I had some great t-shirts that were way past wearability so I made pillows. Here they are:

This was my boyfriends Homestar Runner shirt. I even embroidered it for him ^_^

This is side one of my pillow. I used two different shirts.

This is the other side. I even used a little accent from the other shirt to tie the look together. Hope you like 'em!
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lil' Lolo (img heavy) on: June 22, 2009 09:20:41 PM
This is my first ever post!!

So I made this doll for my Womens' Studies class on creativity & activism. Her name is Lil' Lolo because she is a minature me!

and a close-up

She is made of old socks, the stuffing of an old pillow and scraps I had laying around. I even made her a messenger bag with pins! The Tank Girl pin was given to me but I made the other.

And I put a little zine in her bag.

and a better picture of her hair.

I hope you guys like her!!!
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / photo negatives? on: June 18, 2009 10:09:28 PM
I have a bunch of old negatives from photos I took in the age before the digital camera. I have used some for various papercrafts but I was wondering if anyone had any really good ideas to deal with them once and for all?
