2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Anyone Interested in 50 Projects 2010? on: January 03, 2010 11:51:05 PM
A couple days late but I just saw this today.

This is a tentative list of things I'd like to do this year. In 2009 I got 42 major costume-related projects (Costuming is my life) finished, that doesn't include all the other craft related whats-its I did so I think I can do this! I'm looking at this as a chance to use up some serious stash (there's a lot of it) and finally make some of those "psh, I could do that" things that I refuse to buy because I can make it... but never actually getting around to make.

I don't know if I'll get all of these done, but it's a start Cheesy

1.   Finally make my sailor Lolita dress I’ve been wanting to do forever.
2.   Sundress out of this yellow hibiscus fabric from Hawaii that my late grandmother gave me before she died.
3.   A pair of super ornate spats with lacings and trims and all kinds of stuff.
4.   Rasterbate something.
5.   Paint my room and design/paint a mural – even if it’s something small.
6.   18th century corset.
7.   Learn to mod shoes and make a pair of really amazing boots.
8.   High waisted skirt with buttons down front – saw a really cute one in a magazine I’d like to copy.
9.   Ruffle front long sleeve blouse.
10.   Anthropologie style apron with the tiered ruffle skirt
11.   Elizabethan Tall hat to go with my faire costumes
12.   Tudor gown for faire.
13.   Four costumes for dragon*con this year.
14.   Regency Bonnet for our picnic in the spring.
15.   Multistrand a-symmetrical necklace with pearls and chains and I don’t know what else.
16.   Juicy Couture style purse with the huge grommets and sash around the top.
17.   Set of matching 18th century gowns for my BJDs. They sit around on a shelf so they should at least be pretty.
18.   Set of historical style playing cards.
19.   “Craft Room Organizers” from a simplicity pattern I found for my sewing stuff.
20.   20 or more Lolita skirts for the purpose of selling.
21.   Learn to do resin casting so I can make charms for jewelry.
22.   Learn to knit and at least start a Doctor Who scarf.
23.   Dalek Cake like the one on Ace of Cake. (Nearly wet myself when I saw that).
24.   “French Style” memo board for my room.
25.   Use up my box of scrapbooking crap and make a scrapbook of my friends and I.
26.   Re-cover my computer chair with something not ugly.
27.   Bed set with duvet cover and lots and lots of pillows.
28.   Screen print something – either with freezer paper or finally get a YuDu.
29.   Make some ATCs to frame  
30.   Make a skirt or dress with an embroidered design on it, something breezy and cute.
31.   Modern version of a poodle skirt!
32.   Embroider a set of tea towels – either for myself or for someone else.
33.   Curtains!
34.   Finish or alter a least five things in my “needs to be fixed/altered” box.
35.   Set of felt coasters.
36.   Advent Calendar!
37.   Banner/Bunting to hang in my room. They make me happy to look at!
38.   Fleecey stuffed pillow/bed for my dog.
39.   Frilly steel boned corset with matching garter belt and some kind of hat – just because I feel like it.
40.   Repo! The Genetic Opera costume to wear to the shadowcast in Atlanta.
41.   Mod a tank top to have a ruffled lace and chiffon neckline with beads and whatever else.
42.   Sewn “wide band” style halter for my dog.
43.   Cross-stitch book mark like the one I made for the doctor who swap a couple months ago.
44.   Huge photo collage of all the shows/books/fandoms I like to hang on my wall.
45.   Quilt of some sort, haven’t decided what.
46.   Make a really awesome pincushion and travel-bag for my sewing with pockets for everything.
47.   Gym bag
48.   Set of PJs for me

Sorry I've been so scarce! Things this time of year are just crazy. I've been working on one of the smaller things I'm sending, mug is picked out and I've got a list of the things I'm making as well as the supplies to do them : ) As soon as Christmas is over I'm going to get on this and the other two swaps I'm in! I'm excited to send things out!

Ahhh I've been a bit scarce sorry! A bit of a staus update - I have my crafting plans decided and have started on one of the smaller things I'm making. As soon as Christmas is out of the way - and the post Christmas Winter-House-Cleaning - I'll be getting hardcore started on this and the other two swaps I'm in!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / SyFy's Alice or Tinman? on: December 22, 2009 05:21:38 PM
Ok I looked and didn't seen anyone else having posted this already. I would love to see a swap themed on SyFy's Alice or Tinman mini series - if you haven't seen them they're kind of a modern twist on Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz respectively. They don't have anything to do with each other, beyond the fact that they were made by the same people and have kind of the same feel about them.

Would anyone else be game for something like this? I wouldn't really feel comfortable being in charge of organizing a swap until probably mid February or so, just because I've got so much going on right now but if someone else wanted to do it I'd be (obviously) thrilled to join in!

*loud noises*

Labyrinth omg omg omg omg. I lived for this movie from about the ages 2 months old til, well... it hasn't actually ended yet. I've only completed one swap as of right now and I'm already in another one I joined yesterday. I won't be able to join another one or do multiple swaps until January, but if you do it before then I'll be happy to watch and hopefully do it if there's a "next time."

Angelcallie - You are very welcome! Sorry again for the lateness, but I'm very happy that you're enjoying everything!

mindboggled - Thank you so much for the compliments. The bookmark is my favorite out of everything - and I agree about the adipose thing. XD

My partner was cursive_queen, and I got my things a few days ago - I just haven't had time to post yet. She sent me some really wonderful things! Please excuse the shoddy photos, I took them with my phone and the light in here isn't really the best.

Little zipper bag that looks like the TARDIS. I carry big purses so I've been using this to keep my important stuff together so it doesn't all sink to the bottom and get eaten by the black hole that lives in the bottom of the bag. This has been so useful!

One half of the super cool domino bracelet with characters from the show. I _love_ this bracelet. I've worn it out a couple times and had a lot of people comment on it. Some even recognized the images.

The other half of the bracelet.

My favorite of the bunch - a cross stitched portrait of David Tennant as the 10th Doctor. This is so beautiful, the picture doesn't do it justice at all. I've put it on my desk next to my computer monitor so I can look at it all the time.

Thank you again cursive_queen! I love it all! *squish!*
