3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Light up Redstone Torch on: March 04, 2014 02:44:29 PM
This was made for chrmisha (actually for her son) for the Minecraft Swap Round 2. My husband had just gotten home from work when I thought of this and I was just so excited! While he was in and out of sleep I was just babbling on about how awesome a light up torch would be. I had the leds together in parallel then the rows were put together in parallel. It actually puts out good light.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Geek Easter Basket on: February 20, 2014 09:33:56 AM
Hi you guys! I had an idea for a geeky Easter basket swap. I was thinking one item could be a "basket" (Some sort of thing to hold eggs and candies!) I was thinking that it could be 3-4 point swap.
6  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Child abuse charity? on: February 18, 2014 07:12:29 AM
I was wondering if there were any charities for child abuse. It's something that I feel very strongly about and would love to be able to use my craft skills for that. Thank you guys!
7  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 95 ENTRIES / Plastic Bag tutu on: February 07, 2014 09:32:27 AM
Hello everyone! When I saw this I knew I wanted to do something with my growing collection of plastic bags. And I right away thought "Plastic bag skirt!" and out of curiosity googled it. I came across one at instructables. http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-poufy-skirt-out-of-garbge-bags-and-duct-tap/
So I gave it a shot and realized it would be too short so I added few more layers and ended up with this. Please ignore my post work zombie face it's been a bit busy in the office.

8  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Knit Bomb on: October 10, 2013 11:22:33 AM
So I saw this story last year but forgot to share it. I'm sorry if this doesn't count since it's not a chairty group but an idea for random act of kindness.

A local group of knitters made hats and scarfs and left them around town with tags attached people could pick them up and get free knitted items. Story here: http://www.zanesvilletimesrecorder.com/article/20121123/NEWS01/311230017/Knitters-bomb-Zanesville-creations

I was thinking how great it would be for crafsters to "Knit Bomb" (or crochet or sew) their area and someone finding a nice handmade item.

Hello! If you guys are anything like me then you probably have piles of unsorted craft supplies everywhere. I was thinking how awesome a swap for getting crafts organized would be.
Some inspiration for anyone interested.

A zip-up sewing kit: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422457.0#axzz2ctzWX4Ru
A knitting needle roll: www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=414084.0#axzz2ctwQ16vG

Ideas for times and points would be appreciated! Thanks you guys!

From this swap: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401463.0#axzz2SKkpxvXe
The Board Games swap was one of my personal favorites because I had no idea what I was going to make at all. After helping out with a clothes give away at college I found a twister board that had a small hole in it.
Then I remembered the raincoat from a previous challenge and thought about what I could sew out of a twister bag and designed this tote bag. The handles are t-shirt scraps.

The Raincoat that inspired this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349444.0#axzz2SKkpxvXe
