1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Captured Fairy Vial Pendant & More on: July 04, 2012 06:38:03 AM
I have had these a bunch of these vials for a while now intending to make a few charms and pendants, but only made a few before moving on to other projects. I came across them again while sorting through old craft supplies and I decided to make a few, but I got a bit carried away.

This one, a tiny little fairy captured in a bottle, is my favorite.

but I did make quite a few "potions" and pretties

and even this HP themed charm...

 its Rita Skeeter (in beetle form) along with her quick quotes quill and a tiny Daily Prophet. 

Let me know what you think!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who Shrinky Dink Nightlight on: July 21, 2010 02:31:50 AM
I made this nightlight for a Doctor Who Swap a few months back and have finally gotten around to catching up on posting all of the projects I made. This one was one of my favorites to make because I got to combine two of my favorite things Doctor who and shrink plastic ( I am obsessed with both!).

The 'action shots' of the nightlight turned on did not turn out very well but it looked super awesome all lit up in person!

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Doctor Who Weeping Angel Barbie (aka " Fashion Doll ") Statue on: July 21, 2010 01:42:36 AM
I made this a few months back for a Doctor Who swap. After making some zombie barbie dolls last year I had been wanting to try a new project with them and I absolutely LOVE the Weeping Angels (and fortunately so did my swap partner) so I came up with this:

I used a dollar store Barbie doll knock off and paper mache (which was completely new for me) to sculpt the wings and the dress. The first thing I learned was that paper mache takes FOREVER to dry I made the wings separately and dried them in the oven in a few hours but couldn't put the doll in the oven so the dress took over a week to dry before I could even start painting.  Tongue
I am pretty proud of how she turned out though!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Goblin Charm Bracelet on: February 15, 2010 09:02:47 PM
Here is the charm bracelet I made for the Labyrinth swap.

The goblins are made from shrinky dinks and the goblins are from a Brian Froud book.

I added the strings of beads from some deconstructed  costume jewelry I had to help break up the charms.

This is the very first charm bracelet I have ever done but as I have recently become obsessed with shrinky dinks I have a feeling I will be making more quite soon! Please tell me what you think!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Labyrinth Matryoshka (Nesting) Dolls on: February 15, 2010 08:51:49 PM
Here are the Labyrinth themed nesting dolls I made for a swap.

In case anyone has not seen the movie (you should see it right away it is AWESOME Grin ) each doll is a character from the film.
This is Ludo a very large resident of the goblin world...

Then we have the Goblin King Jareth (played by David Bowie) and Sarah (played by a teenage Jennifer Connelly)...

And then we have Hoggle, another goblin world inhabitant and Sarah's baby brother Toby...

This is my first set of the matryoshka dolls. I had been thinking about making a set for years but didn't get my courage up to try and paint my own until the swap. They were a bit tough to do because of the curved surfaces and how tiny they were but I was pretty happy with them. Tell me what you think!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Shrinky Dink scrap Valentine on: February 09, 2010 09:09:11 PM
On Valentine's day my son usually would give a little gift to his teacher along with his card (bribing the teacher never hurts). This year we are very broke so I was trying to come up with a project using only what I had around the house and complete rather quickly because as usual I waited until the last minute. So here is what I made....

The best part was that I used scraps from other shrinky dink projects to make the hearts and bigger pieces to make the backing. I used different shades of nail polish to get the different colors (after they had been baked) They are pretty small but would look cute as a classroom decoration I think.
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Stabby penholder on: January 28, 2010 08:56:17 AM
I needed to cheer up a friend who had just gone through a nasty breakup a few days before her birthday and this is what I came up with...

He not only holds her pen but helps her vent when she is feeling a bit "stabby".
I used polymer clay over an aluminum foil skeleton. This is only my second attempt to work with polymer clay so I would make a few changes next time but I am happy with how it turned out overall.
(Sorry the pic is so tiny I gift wrapped him before thinking to take pics and had to have a photo sent to me to post!)
