3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dia De Los Muertos Swap?? on: October 20, 2012 08:49:36 AM

from vitaminihandmade.blogspot.com

Would anyone be up for it? Tis the season! Cheesy

I'd be happy to organize if there's enough interest. I'm thinking of starting it in the next few days with a one-week signup period and three weeks or so to craft. Maybe 4 points or so, with at least one medium or large?

We can take advantage of all the after-Halloween sales and get some spooky things and supplies for cheap! What do you say?
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster won't load in Google Chrome! on: April 28, 2012 10:28:29 AM
Is anyone else unable to get Craftster to load in Google Chrome? It says it's up to date, and just comes up with the error message that the page can't be loaded Sad Luckily Safari loads it just fine. POOP!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Yarnie WIP Bag on: February 23, 2012 10:00:46 PM
I made this WIP bag for a swap partner who loves pink Smiley She also mentioned in her Pinterest that she'd like a WIP bag that would let her walk and knit/crochet at the same time.

It has a square interfaced bottom and is lined with the same outside fabric. It also has a drawstring closure as well as a big strap across the top that is detachable on one side (velcro). The design was inspired by a few different bags on her Pinterest, and it's one of my favorite bags that I've made! It ended up being pretty roomy inside too (it's about 9x7 inches or so).

Thanks for looking!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tortoise-shell inspired necklace on: February 23, 2012 09:54:05 PM
I made this simple necklace for a swap. My partner likes tortoises, and I had this old costume earring that had been waiting forever for the perfect project. I added a few peridot and emerald rhinestones to it--fun!

Hope I can find the other earring to make another one like it, or maybe a brooch. Thanks for looking!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Ring-a-ding-dings: Upcycled from old junk on: February 23, 2012 09:49:35 PM
Making rings out of old jewelry is one of my favorite crafts. It's easy and immediately gratifying!


Thanks for looking Smiley

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fabric flower jewelry on: December 26, 2011 01:50:34 PM
I made this bib necklace and pin for the fabric jewelry swap. They turned out better than I expected!

The pin is made by cutting a strip of fabric into three strands (leaving it attached at the top) and braiding them, then coiling the braid and sewing the coils together.

Thanks for looking! Questions/comments welcome Smiley
