41  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First Charm Bracelet on: August 11, 2010 09:05:42 AM
...and first (real) jewelry project in years!  now that my babygirl is a little bigger i'm not so afraid to pull out the beads (since my crafting space is dining room table!). 

didn't realize how difficult it would be to photograph it!

i've got the bug now and plan on digging out my bead stash to make more!

thanks for looking Wink

42  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Tiny owl on: August 02, 2010 07:11:38 AM
I'm feeling a bit owl-ish today so I thought I'd post a pic of an owl I made for my oldest daughter for her birthday.

Pattern is from Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli...I love that book so much! 

Thanks for looking!

43  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Scotch Tins on: July 31, 2010 11:56:55 AM
My dad makes and repairs guitars for a living, and often has customers that like to tip him with things like bottles of fancy scotch.  Mom hates having to find a place to recycle them...I said i'll take them and figure something out!  Here's the before:

Original idea was to decorate them, drill a hole in the lid and use them to thread yarn through while knitting/crocheting...FAIL on the hole drilling idea but still nifty for storing smaller balls of yarn and scraps!  This one was super easy, 12 x 12 scrapbook sheet fit almost perfectly, just had to shave a teeny bit off the edge.

Orange one was made for my sister, the Craftster rock star lanikins.  I found a Family Circle magazine from 1978 that had these awful crochet patterns and just had to share the weirdness.  So funny to me because it is completely not like lanikins, she is very "hot pink and skulls"...definitely not lime green and orange.  She thought it was hilarious though Smiley

Thanks for looking!

This project was one of those unplanned kind of things...started out with an idea that failed!  I'll just call it a happy accident because i love it!  (hubby says it creeps him out though  Tongue)  i've only uploaded pics of the top and front so it won't be completely loaded...thanks for looking!

45  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from Colorado! on: July 07, 2010 09:43:03 AM
Hello! I've been lurking here for a bit now and thought I might tell everyone a little bit about myself!  I am a stay at home mom of three living in beautiful Denver, Colorado.  I have a super crafty dad and sister and dabble in a few things myself.  In other words, I've tried a little bit of a lot of things!  I enjoy crochet and amigurumi, paper crafts like card making and scrapbooking, love making jewelry and have recently started to decoupage random found items.  Just signed up for my first swap and am so thrilled to get to know the fantastic artists around here!   Smiley
46  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / This Little Piggy on: July 06, 2010 09:50:17 AM
I made this for my dear friend from out of state who collects pig items...but had such a hard time giving her up!  (my babygirl also tried to claim her repeatedly while i was working on her)  I got the pattern initially from redheart.com, but made some little changes here and there and am so happy with how she came out.

47  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / First attempt at decoupage on: June 28, 2010 10:47:40 AM
I picked up a great Family Circle magazine from 1954...so many fun pictures! The pics here are from a four page spread that educates on the many types of flies used in fly fishing so that woman can learn the sport too. My dad fished a lot when I was a kid, so I thought it would be fun to make him a Fathers Day gift to bring back a little nostalgia.

Box is paper mache purchased at craft store, acrylic paint, lots and lots of Mod Podge...

...and learned the hard way that you've gotta put a sealant on these types of things or they stick! Thanks for looking!
48  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy Birthday! on: June 28, 2010 10:20:33 AM

This little cake was made for my daughter's 2nd birthday from a pattern from the book Amigurumi Two! by Ana Paula Rimoli. I made it with a sport weight acrylic/cotton blend yarn so it is super soft and squishy.
