Just love seeing all the finished puzzles.  A wonderful variety of styles.

Got 2 more pieces from Jesa last night.  I love the black one with the flower.  Pretty sure the flower is was a bottle cap in a former life.  As some one who makes stuff from junk,  I always appreciate the cleverness of finding new uses for stuff.

Got 2 pieces from Shannin today.  It a brown bear and white bear face.  Simple and cute.  Below is a close up.

For round 3 I am going to stick with the same still have a bunch of pieces left. For the next puzzle I would love to do a dollhouse type them.  I have this image of dollhouse apartment type thing,  with each piece being a different room.

3  The Ogee ornament in Winter Holidays by sirmamabear on: December 18, 2009 09:13:42 PM

The idea for this was taken from http://blog.betzwhite.com/2009/12/felt-ogee-ornament-tutorial.html. She did her's with felt. Well felt is not my medium of choice, but I loved the look and did mine with green plastic from a Mountain dew 2 litter bottle. You can get 2 six inch squares from 1 bottle. I did cut/melt mine with a soldering iron but a pair of scissors and small hole punch would work. I used brads to attach it, though next time I might use something different, not sure if I like the fact that I can see the prongs. Might use some brass beads.

My other regret is that it did not fit in my light box, the picture does not show it in the best light.

Here is my puzzle.  Should have taken a picture before shipping,  O well

The scary part is I had ringlets like that when I was that age.

Keeping the kid and frame unaltered at the moment.   Though if I find real wood filigree pieces like the frame that would be super sweet.

Got my loots a few days ago,  sorry for not posting pics sooner.   Getting ready for a craft show later this month and buried my light box.   Some how taking pics on my bed just did not seem right.

Love the green felt.  Think that is going to become a book mark.  And the orange marble paper is gorgeous,  just have no idea to do with it.  A couple of happy face stickers,  bunches of interesting paper.  A picture of a nun.  some black and white ribbons,  a bunch of dmc floss.  Might have to break down and do an atc or 2.

Thanks OTHAT

Well here is my tease shot

My apologizes for the lack of photo quality,  I took the photos more to remind myself what I sent, than to share.

I would also be interested in doing a flat rate box of goodness swap.

How did you get the LED light to be "breath activated" with the straw?

Greta project.BTW Smiley

Well the simple answer is I bought them that way.  Found a package of 6 for 5 bucks at Big Lots.  There called Blow on/off LED T lights.  They look kinda like these at http://www.1compras.com/product_info.php?language=en&currency=USD&products_id=2863.   I also saw them at Walgreens a few days ago. 

Basically the silver straw is over the on/off switch.   So you can still blow it on/off.  Crude diagram is below.

9  Ray Gun in CHALLENGE 43 ENTRIES by sirmamabear on: October 01, 2009 10:20:31 PM

The barrel of the gun was made from woven straws.   An led tea light is used for the ray gun works.   The light is breath activated. So there is a straw in the front to blow the gun on and off.   The rest of the parts come from recycled soda plastic that was colored with sharpies.   Bits of copper wire, some glue and fishing line where used to connect everything together. 

I made some goggles and necklace to match, but they have no straw parts to them. 

The purple one below was a proto type.

10  D9Z Steampunk style finger gun in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sirmamabear on: September 20, 2009 11:46:04 AM
If I stuck this in the wrong place, just let me know and I will move it : )

This little finger gun is called the D9Z Discretion 9 Zillion.  Currently sporting a size 10 us ring.  I have chunky fingers.

The gun is made from recycled plastic.  The gun body is made from an extract bottle that was modified with the use of a heat gun and a hot knife.  The barrels are 4 green straws. The gun body and barrel received an under coat of brass and then an over coat of browns and greens to give it an aged look.  The barrels are bound with a ring of green plastic.  The top of the gun has a large green, black and brown bead attached to the gun body with a green plastic stick. 

This is meant for adults.  Children should not have ray guns of any kind,  they might shoot their eye out.   Grin
