651  Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery - January 2007, Happy New Year! in The Swap Gallery by sweets4ever on: January 24, 2007 09:11:18 AM
Vanillaxlight sent me a super surprise package!! Grin Grin Grin  I've been going through a really rough time in life right now and it was like a big bundle of handcrafted cheer in a box.  I can't thank her enough...

I lost my favorite scarf the very first night I wore it and she made me one to replace it!
Same colors & everything!

I had a rainbow scarf on my Wists and she made it...but she crocheted it in some whacky crazy Tunisian way, so it looks knit.
CRAZY, I tell you!
I had this on there as a "Yeah, I'll add this, but it's a big old hope 'cause I don't think anyone will ever make it for me" item! Cheesy

A beautiful crocheted bracelet in two sizes of red, glass beads and two sizes of black, crystals.
I love it down to the pretty clasp!

MAGAZINE beads with a soda pop top clasp!
This is so funky cute it hurts.

A ton of goodies!
Stitch & Bitch, a turtle who's gonna grow super big for me, shrinky dink magnets and a tin with even more in it!, a pack of beautiful birdie buttons & a cookie cutter!

ANNDDDdd... a shrug by Happy Hooker.  She thought it might be too small, but it's not at all - it's perfect & SO cute!  I love that it's in white 'cause it'll match so many tops.

Here are a few of mine.  Lots of randomness - nature shots, cityscape, my fiance, photos of his sister for her senior photos last year.

Bigger version here looks better Smiley

My fiance bought me a Lensbaby http://www.lensbabies.com/ for Christmas & this was the first picture I took with it!  It's SO much fun... addicting though! Cheesy

Okay... I am drowsy from meds.... when you all say ALL do you mean ALL images? Or ALL posts?

Well, there is a new "SHOW ALL IMAGES IN THIS TOPIC" button, but mothey're talking about the "All" option near the number of pages in a thread.

If a thread has 50 or less posts, you can click "All" to view them all on one, lonnnng screen rather than having to click through the pages to read through them one at a time.

654  How's your Etsy shop doing now? in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by sweets4ever on: December 29, 2006 06:31:47 AM
sweets, i keep thinking of you because i'm about to do another run of the bike stuff (with that awesome diagram) and i keep thinking how you were the funnest person ever to do a custom order for.  i'm thinking i might do some printing just on painted canvas board, since a friend's roommate got a scrap piece of fabric with that bike screened on it and just framed it and it looks kind of awesome just hanging on the wall...  what do you think?  or does it need to be on something functional? 
[i'm itching to get my computer back so i can show you what i mean, in case you can't tell...]


Aw... Smiley  I don't think it has to be something functional at all.  I think some cycling art or decor would be *awesome*!  We like funky artwork like that.  I bet you could make an awesome set... one with the bike, one with the gear - each with a different or same background color.

ORRR... paint two canvas boards the same color and then use two different scrap fabrics.  Print one with the gear and one with the bicycle and mount each to the individual canvas boards.  Erm... it's too hard to describe!  Something like these...

I still use my bigger bag ALL the time - I used to carry some of my camera lenses in it, but now I carry my gym towel, water bottle & wallet in it every night for the gym. Grin
This one still carries a lens though and this one is my purse when I'm going thrifting or grocery shopping because it hangs so nicely from my wrist when I'm power shopping in real life. Grin  Justin's gotten a lil' too big for his shirt (his arms/muscles, not his belly or anything like that, LOL!) and mine's shrunk a bit, so it's a little short, but I layer it over a long-sleeved shirt for a layered/winter look now anyway. Cheesy  It's still soft as ever, too!

Conley: totally agree. Especially if you're including sweets as an honorary shop owner  Wink

655  Frames & photo scrapbook in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by sweets4ever on: December 22, 2006 05:31:15 AM
I made these for a swap. Smiley

Her favorite color is green, so I took a plain black frame & color washed it with metallic green and topaz.
Then I decorated it with tumbled carnelians, rhinestones and a colorful glass piece.

I took a funky white frame and covered/sealed it with tons and tons of seed beads (so many layers!).

This is little photo scrapbook.
I used it as part of the swap, but I figured she could remove the photos I have in it and use it again after the swap. Smiley

My little craft foam camera guy. Cheesy

656  Bowl made from raffle tickets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: December 22, 2006 05:24:59 AM
I made this for a swap & got the idea from my partner's Wists. Smiley

She Wisted this link https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98531.0 and that link provides this link http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Ticket-Bowls_MPD325.html. Smiley

It's made from a roll of raffle tickets, decoupaged and acrylic sealed in many layers.  I wish I had a more colorful roll of tickets lying around, but at least the concept is there.

Hgflower is still scanning the actual pix, but here's pix of everything I sent her.  She's such a sweetie - I'm glad she likes everything. Smiley


Seed-beaded frame

Her favorite color is green, so I took a plain black frame & color washed it with metallic green and topaz.
Then I decorated it with tumbled carnelians, rhinestones and a colorful glass piece.

This isn't a frame, but I saw it on her Wists and had to make it for her 'cause they're so much fun!

I wanted a way for her to know what she was looking at, so as I was taking my film pictures I took duplicates with my digital camera and kept notes along my journey.

I made this little scrapbook and PhotoShopped copies of the photos in with captions/comments about each photo.
I wrapped it all up with a CD of the pictures from my digital and marked it as "Swap Spoiler Materials" in case she didn't want to spoil the fun of seeing the pictures until she had them developed.

Here are most of the pages (somehow I missed one Sad): http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweets4ever/tags/capture24swapscrapbook/
Here are the digital copies I took - I'm so happy that the ones she posted so far resemble them! lol: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweets4ever/tags/capture24swapphotos/

658  Mugs of treats (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by sweets4ever on: December 21, 2006 06:44:48 PM
I made 24 mugs of goodies for my fiance's employees for the holiday.  He wanted to get everyone something, but couldn't think of anything to purchase that everyone would enjoy and wouldn't break the bank.

Last year I made his department gel candles: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69356.0

Chocolate covered pretzels, 3 kinds - red sugar, sprinkles & peanut butter drizzles.

Stir spoons - chocolate-dipped with crushed peppermint candies.

Suckers - chocolate reindeer, santa & candy canes.

Hot cocoa "cones"

The mugs all packed with treats & ready to go - woot!

Another member, minibooger, made an AWESOME version of these and posted them later in the thread.  Check 'em out!
