1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / My new Kurt Halsey Backpack!! on: August 18, 2007 10:02:12 PM
Thats right! I am the proud owner of a Kurt Halsey backpack!

I bought a new backpack last weekend for school and decided to spruce it up. So I ordered the Kurt Halsey pack and stitched away...and three or four days (and many sore thumbs) later (that canvas is a biotch to stitch through) I got this:

Close up of the bird and bee:

And a close up of the other bee and the angel:

I'm so in love with it...I think I will possibly have the coolest backpack in school! (not to toot my own horn too much)
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Critique my new blog (Please?) on: May 29, 2007 09:16:10 PM

I decided to jump on the blog bandwagon, but I haven't gotten any feedback on said blog. I was hoping maybe some of you all might like to tell me whats good and not so good about my first few posts. I'm hoping to entice more readers, but I'm not sure how to do it. (I hope this is an appropriate thing to post. If not, I apologize  Grin)
Thanks in advance! Constructive criticism very welcome!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pretty Sparkly Jewelry (Largish Pics) on: April 15, 2007 09:16:15 AM
Hi! I made this necklace the other day:

It is made with a lampwork glass focal and swarovski crystals (that I already had in my stash and they matched the pendant perfectly!)

And this is a bracelet that my boyfriend made me:

It's also made of swarovski crystals, and this pic doesn't do it justice. Its so sparkly! He's pretty talented, huh? That was his first piece.

Thanks for looking and sorry the pics are so large, but when I made them smaller, I lost all the details...
4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Flamework Beginner's Kit *EDIT* Pics Added (VERY img obese) on: March 30, 2007 01:58:16 PM
I just got my beginner's flameworking kit from www.cathedralstainedglass.com It took right at about a week to get here...I can't wait to start using everything! I will post pics of all the goodies when I get home tonight! If anyone has any words of wisdom for a novice I would definatly appreciate it!
*And now for some pics!
Here's the box (with a silly kitty!)

The opened box (group shot, sort of...)

Free stuff (catalogs)

How-To video (and I have no VCR...)

Torch head and bottle clamp

Mandrels and Marvers

and the pretty glass rods!

I also got an annealing blanket and bead release!

Sorry for so many pics, but I'm just so excited! Next will be some finished projects, I promise!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Some of my work...comments welcome (img heavy) on: June 14, 2006 01:05:56 PM
These are a few of the things I've done. I mainly enjoy conte crayon, dry pastel, and charcoal (I love how messy I can get with them Smiley ) These were all projects for various classes so I wasn't able to get too creative with them. And unfortunatly the flash from my camera really washed them out. They are much more vibrant in person. (Obviously I'm no photographer...) Anyway, on to the pics:

This is a still life in dry pastel:

Another still life in conte crayon (the background is pastel):

This one is charcoal (and my first drawing, so be kind)

This is done from a photo of my grandpa, in charcoal, conte crayon and pastel. Sorry for the flash, its wrapped in shrinkwrap since I submitted it for a show at school. Also, the contrast between the conte and charcoal isn't as obvious in person:

This one is also conte crayon and pastel:

And finally this piece is black ink, white paint:

What do you think? I know I have far to go to develop techniques, so I would really like some constructive criticism (but please be kind, my fragile ego can only take so much Wink ) Thanks!!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Enameled Ladybug Earrings...So Pretty! on: June 01, 2006 02:24:08 PM

What do you think? Oh, I still have to add the hooks...
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Craft Room!! (img heavy) on: June 01, 2006 09:39:06 AM
So I finally got my own crafting area! (It used to be our dining room, but we never used it so...) On to the pics!

Heres the other side:

Heres my desk where the magic happens:

My crystal chandelier over my desk (it just holds a candle):

Close up of my fabric storage (see my awesome vintage silk?) and my magazine rack:

My book case with bead organization:

So what do you think? I LOVE it!!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag I Embelleshed on: May 30, 2006 10:35:25 PM
I got this device that makes snaps from my grandmother. I haven't figured out how it works, but it came with all these cool snap covers. So I did this with them:

This is my first post, so I hope the pic works and that I put it in the right place. Oh, and here's a close up:

Thanks for looking!

And sorry the pics are so big. I don't know how to resize them.
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / help with 3-d collage, painting on: March 09, 2005 01:16:07 PM
I really want to paint something for my bf using acrylic paints (actually super heavy body paints) and embedding 3-d objects (keyboard keys, broken computer components...he's a computer geek Wink ) But I'm not sure how to affix the objects. Anybody know what glues are good to use that won't affect the paint? Do I wait till the paint is dry to the touch? Would the paint itself be enough to affix? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
