11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Dreamcatcher-opinions needed on: April 26, 2011 11:54:18 PM
Alright, before I ask my questions, here's the dream catcher I just made! It's maroon and brown floss wrapped around a hoop with brown floss used as the webbing. It also has purple beads throughout it and the center part has 2 purple, 1 off white and 1 leaf bead. The colors didn't come out spectacular in these pictures, so I though I would clarify in advance.

My questions: Should I add little dangling leaf charms through the webbing or should I hang something from the bottom? Or both or neither? I like it as is, but looking at it I just can't decide if I want to add more to it.

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
12  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / First ever belt attempt! on: April 25, 2011 11:58:29 PM
I found this rainbow belt-stuff at Joannes the other day and it was super cheap so I just had to get it. After all, my favorite color is rainbow.

This is the belt buckle. I basically took a silver buckle (I think it's supposed to hold a flat stone or something) and glued in a bunch of translucent rainbow seed beads.

I only put in 3 grommets because quite frankly I'm too tired to put in more. And I don't think I need any more for the time being.

And of course, an action shot!

This was SO easy to make! And now I have a fun new rainbow belt! Hooray  Grin
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tiny Top Hats! (And one matching necklace) on: March 08, 2011 12:40:48 AM
I posted some tiny top hats I had made a long while ago, along with some masks. Time for some more! These are becoming a little obsession of mine.

Valentine hat:

Glitzy hat-Front:


Heart hat-This is just the back of this hat, but the front is pretty minimalistic.

And the matching necklace! (It's laying a little funky, but that's cause it's slightly too big for my neck)

Yay for things that are absurdly small!
14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Monster Sketchbook on: December 13, 2010 11:58:34 PM
For Christmas I made my 12 year old cousin a monster-themed sketchbook. It's super padded and REALLY soft. Hopefully she doesn't bring it with her to school or anything, 'cause if I had one I would totally use it as a pillow.

The cover

Front page and inside cover

Mouth detail. Yes, that's a lip ring.

Eye detail. Yes, those are eyebrow rings XD

These were all so much fun to make! Especially plastering my face for the masks! By the way, plaster gauze is DEFINITELY not the same thing as plaster... and... gauze. It does not work as well.

16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Terrence the owl. on: October 25, 2010 12:07:34 AM

Pen and Watercolor on wood. I don't know why, but I woke up HAVING to draw this.
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zombie felties (My new obsession!) on: August 28, 2010 12:57:04 AM
These take like 30 minutes, are super cute, and are therapeutically easy to do.

Front and back

This one is for a friend of mine, who requested it be made so that he could hang it from his rear view mirror

So fun!
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Umbrella necklace on: June 06, 2010 11:35:17 PM
It won't keep me dry up here in the Pacific Northwest, but it was fun to solder and I think it turned out pretty cute! (And I'm not burnt, it's just the picture)

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sheet Music Portrait on: June 06, 2010 11:21:43 PM
I dyed these old sheet music pages with Easter egg dye we had lying around (I'm resourceful that way) into a couple different darknesses (to represent shadows). Then with lots of time and effort, I put it together into a face. The face is modge podged, but the hair is still 3-dimensional. Yay!

20  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / I am the product of a crafter... No wonder I'm weird. on: April 26, 2010 04:29:09 PM
My name is Nicole, and I was raised in a craft store. Well, not really, but my house floweth over with crafting supplies. A little bit of everything really, but I'm best with card making and jewelry-ing. I've just begun dabbling in sewing, but not well yet. Plus I paint sometimes and love to take pictures.
My partner in crime is my mom, who is the reason my house has so many supplies in the first place. We just seem to collect things but don't know what to do with it. Hopefully we'll get some ideas here!
