51  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / My new favorite earrings! Bling Bling! on: May 13, 2006 04:52:17 AM
This picture does not even begin to show how eye-catching these earrings are - They hang really pretty and catch the light really well. They are made of squared clear beads with silver cores that I got from Michaels. Total bling! I love them! I orginally made them with three dangles instead of two but that was a little too much for me for everyday.

What do you think?

Our hospital is having a bed pan decorating contest for Hospital week.

I am totally stumped - Can anyone help me out?

I know you all probably have a million great ideas!


53  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Long Loopy Necklace & Earrings made from DUCT TAPE PAPER BEADS? on: April 19, 2006 04:38:07 AM
Thanks to Marinechimp - I learned how to make paper beads. But I always wind up using duct tape lol. This is my necklace and earrings using camoflauge duct tape & other beads....
and here's a closeup of the beads...

so what do you think?
54  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Angel Marble Ornaments! on: December 16, 2005 04:53:29 AM
I had an ornament exchange at work and made these out of the really big flat glass marbles - I put 2 of them together with the pictures in between and then glued on gold bead chain and stuck on a bead. I'm kind of nervous cuz they'll all have storebought ones.....

What do you think?
55  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Computer Ornaments - Tis the Season on: December 16, 2005 04:48:57 AM
Can you stand one more thing on the computer?
Here's computer ornaments I made for our tree at work using the same technique as my computer earrings (only I used fun foam in between to give them some substance and glued the pictures onto the fun foam)

Merry Christmas!
56  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Computer Keychains! on: November 02, 2005 04:15:27 AM
My daughter and her best friend went to a homecoming dance with their boyfriends, so I made them computer keychains (made just like the computer earrings) for a memory for them.

Front (my daughter is the one on the left)

and back (my daughter wanted just her boyfriend on the back)
57  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / NOT Computer Earrings! ; ) on: November 01, 2005 02:37:18 AM
Hey guys!  My girlfriend challenged me to make some normal (not computer) earrings out of beads LOL. Here's what I came up with. They're made of black beads with colored shimmer (with feathers on the bottom). I couldn't really catch the colors good in a picture.

What do you think?
58  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / New features I'd like to see on: October 30, 2005 08:25:31 AM
Hello, I just thought I'd share an idea of 2 new features I'd love to see on Craftster.

1. A favorite members section. Some people's crafts are just your style and you like to see what they make new. If you could add people to a favorite members lists, you could just check their posts sometimes instead of having to do a search to find them.

2. An unsubscribe feature. I like to compliment people on their work and sometimes I make sure I do so I can lurk and see what is up new with their thread. But sometimes I don't compliment people because I don't want to have it turn up in my "New Replies to Your Post" section. So I'd like to be able to compliment someone but not have to subscribe to their post and see everytime someone makes a comment. Maybe have a choice as to whether you want to see future references to that post or not?

And I do think Craftster is the neatest thing since the wheel was invented - although I am a little too addicted......
59  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Butterflies with Tut - Image Heavy! on: October 30, 2005 06:08:24 AM
These butterflies are made from recycled bottles and are really cool for VBS crafts as pins or magnets or gifts or ornaments or whatever. Really easy for any age.
The first one is a new butterfly I made. The second one is an old one I made when I taught VBS and it's about 7 years old (just threw it in to show how well the gluestick holds over time). And the third one is one I painted with fabric paint.

First you take some empty bottles (Clear 2 liters are best) and cut out the part of the bottle without seams and wind up with a rounded square. (on the top right of the photo below)
Then you print out a butterfly cut out a square and color it. You can color it with anything but regular markers (not sharpies) work best.
Then you rub a gluestick all over the butterfly and put the clear square over it.

When it dries you cut out the shape, bend the wings forward and Voila! a Butterfly!!!  The rounded shape of the bottle perfectly shapes the wings. Put a magnet on the back or a pinback and you're finished.

You can also tape the clear plastic over a blank butterfly and paint or use sharpies over it and make a painted butterfly or even a stained glass butterfly

I used painted butterflies all over my Christmas tree one year.
Tell me what you think!
And if you make some - I'd love to see them!!

and BTW here's my pattern if you need it (it came out a little small - you'll need to make it bigger) - or you can use one of your own
60  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Veggie Tales Picture Marble Bracelet on: August 20, 2005 07:58:50 AM
Yet another posting of picture glass marbles - on my bracelet. I couldn't get those forms Leah used so I glued my marbles (with E6000) onto a strip of fake leather I got at Walmart and then put a snap in for the fastener.

Don't you just love Veggie Tales?
