1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Self-care/Treat yoself swap on: March 02, 2015 10:57:58 AM
 Grin Now that I've fixed my negative feedback, I'd like to get into organizing again!

Would anyone be interested in a self-care swap?
I know I struggle with depression and anxiety. And lots of you mamas get so stressed out, taking care of hubby or the kids before yourself sometimes. Over time I've been able to put a system in place for myself to help me succeed. SELF-CARE! Sometimes you've got to stop and put yourself first, cheer yourself on!

-Homemade beauty products, Bath bombs, lotion bars, soap, bath salts, lip balm ect.
-Healthy recipe cards
-Water bottle holders -Gotta stay hydrated to feel good!
-Coloring pages - Cause sometimes you just want to zone out.
-Positive Hoopla- "Go you!" "You are beautiful!"
-Comfort box
-Candles, incense ect
-Short exercise cards

-nail polish

Would anyone be interested in this? Maybe at the end of April? Any suggestions?

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Showtime Weeds Swap on: June 24, 2010 04:20:23 PM

Alright. The 6th season of Weeds on Showtime kicks off on August 16th.

I know that there have been other showtime show swaps (Dexter! <3) And I know that sometimes things in relation to marijuana are a bit taboo. But the show? I know that there are pleeenty of people who -do not- smoke, that watch this show. I've been watching Weeds since the very first episode. It's one of my favorite shows. And I think I'd like to tackle this for my first organized swap.

So Are you in love with Mary Louise Parker? Would you proudly display a "little boxes" Embroidery? T-shirts with quotes from Andy (And all of his stony wisdom?)

We can do this and follow the rules! It's just a show.

Also If everyone could read this:

This swap would -not- be about drug paraphernalia. Craftster does an excellent job of keeping things like this under wraps. I know that -I- wouldn't want this website to come under any trouble. <3

Any Ideas guys? Is this something that anyone would be interested for August? With Signups in July?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Felt Octopus Mp3 case on: June 18, 2010 09:51:16 PM

I made this case for my little sister's zune the other night. I need to work on my stitches, but I really like the way it turned out. (Even if he does only have 6 legs! He's meant to be cute. Not accurate.)

Before I made the pocket half.

 Pocketed but....  I still felt like it was missing something.
So I added a button/strap and then a heart.

And Here his is. Completely finished. And with the stencil I used for his head.
9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 48 ENTRIES / Wee little Alice... Pic heavy with love. on: March 04, 2010 08:44:43 AM

I have to say. This is one of my favorite projects ever. I made this a few weeks ago and was super excited when I found out that I could enter her into this tiny craft challenge.  Cheesy

In progress:

Her head is a bead!  Tongue I didn't get a picture of her just starting out because I forgot.


And a few detail shots:

I added in highlights. :3

And little ruffles under her dress.

The size reference... a quarter because I don't have a ruler:

Thank you for looking! Please enjoy! :3
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Polymer Mustache pocketwatch pendant on: February 17, 2010 02:15:48 AM
I was going to enter this into the little tiny craft challenge. But then I made something much smaller. This is the first Item I've posted on here so I don't know what else to say.

>.> The mustache took me -forever- to get even. It reminds me of the pringles guy. xD

<3 I think I need to get a thin gold(ish) chain for this one.

Size reference.
Criticism welcome! : ) Thanks for looking!
