1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My First Inchies in 3D Vision! on: May 26, 2009 09:36:50 PM
OKay not really 3D vision, but I do enjoy adding a 3D dynamic to my paper crafts, so naturally I had to try this out with inchies. I made these for my good friend cbass. They come in a little matchbox  that I played around with to make a sweet little inchie drawer. There's no cohesive theme to these, I just tried to make each one its own little world.

All of them together at the inchie party.

A few of my favs. The garden-themed one was the very first inchie to come to life, and from then on I was hooked. I had embroidered the cat awhile ago and was pleased to see that it fit one inch square perfectly. The little man in the pink circle is an inside joke, his name is Sir TopHeavy.

And everyone snug back in their drawer.

So what do you think of my attempt? Which ones are your favorites?

2  CANADA / Ontario / Craftster Meetup in Toronto! on: March 27, 2009 07:38:37 AM
Come one come all from all over the GTA and beyond!

May 2 at 2pm we will be meeting up at the Moonbean Cafe in Kensington Market to chat and craft and meet each other!

Everyone participating will be making a wrapped 1-2 point item that is generally craft related to give away! (Think coin purses, key chains, small pictures). If you are going to come, please post in this thread and I will start to compile a list of attendees. That way we will know if I need to call Moonbean ahead of time to warn them of the swarm of Craftsters about to descend on them.

Can't wait to see you all!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Embroidered Button Cuff on: July 19, 2008 10:28:19 PM
Halloo all!
I made this cuff for nataluna for the I love Buttons swap. I pretty much winged it, but the result is my largest completed embroidery project to date! Grin It's made on linen with a copper wire frame. I had been wanting to try an embroidered cuff, and  Nataluna and I both love rainbows, so this was an easy choice to make.

This is what the frame looks like underneath all that thread.

Also Nataluna took some really awesomely clear pictures of the stitches if anyone is interested (and cares to ooh and ahhh over the awesome Button gallery)

I would love any sort of feedback!
4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES / The Midnight Snack Mini Fridge Light *It's Pic-a-licious!* on: May 05, 2008 10:36:16 AM
Hello ladies and lads!
I had been meaning to make a tiny fridge with tiny food for awhile, and I'm a sucker for little details. So when I saw this challenge I thought, "oh! I can make it with a working light!" and then the idea of the fridge as a nightlight came after that. And so without further ado,

The Midnight Snack Mini Fridge Light

It stands at about 5 inches tall.

Hmm, whats in the fridge?

Alright! Apples, bannanas, avocado, milk, eggs, sushi, fresh fish, bacon on sale, perogies, leftovers, beer, lettuce, strawberries, yellow peppers,and orange peppers and tulips!
This picture shows how everything was made separately so that it can all be moved around and played with. That's right, I said play. It`s all polymer clay. I wove the basket with beading wire.

And here it is in action by my bedside! Now when I get a midnight snack, I don`t have to blind myself with my lamp, but I don`t have to stub my toe either!

This is how it works. Theres a little switch that when pushed breaks the circut. So when the door closes, the light goes off, just like a real fridge!

The bulb is a flashlight bulb that my Dad and I had to hardwire after we discovered that the bulbs and socket we bought weren`t compatable. It`s connected to a 9V battery.

A few progress shots
This is the box my Dad found for me. He`s super.

Yeah! Wine and solder!

A little more detail. 

The best part is, I had or found all the material, so I really only spent about 5 bucks on the electrical stuff!
I`m really nervous about posting, so any comments and or suggestions are welcome!
Thanks for looking!

That's me with my dad's crazy soldering iron, and dad-roc in the back there. He deserves some credit for his excellent yoda-ing.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Distant Future... Robot Swap? on: March 19, 2008 05:46:39 PM
Hey all!
I'm new to the land of swap but I feel right at home. Nice folks we got here! Grin
Lately I have been obsessed with robots. I think about them in all different forms, cakes, clay, applique, cross-stich... the list goes on!
Not sure if there has been a Robot Swap, but would anyone be interested?
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chunky Avocado Ring on: December 05, 2007 09:15:15 AM
Hey all! I made this a few years back but never thought to post it. It's my first ring. The actual ring part is a little wonky, and it's a little tight when my fingers are swollen, but the weight of it is great and I get lot's o' compliments.
