21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nature's bottlecaps? on: January 17, 2006 12:55:16 PM
I found these acorn tops a few months back at the zoo with my son and didn't find them again until they showed up in my coat pocket a few weeks ago.  I thought I'd try filling them with embellishments and glaze and see what happened.  

I made them into magnets which will be packaged in a tin.

22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / best glass to metal glue for making microscope slide pins on: October 25, 2005 11:14:34 PM
What are your suggestions?  I don't think my white tacky glue is going to do the job here.  I am going to be making pins out of microscope slides and need a glue that will make the pin backing stick to the glass permanently since I will be selling these.

Is E6000 appropriate for this?  I did a search and didn't really find a conclusive answer....
23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / domino/copper flower shadow box on: October 24, 2005 10:23:40 PM
I made this shadow box at the request of a friend who showed me some colors in a room that she wanted a one of my shadow boxes for.  I used copper for the flower and covered the domino with paper and glaze. 

You can't really tell, but the paper under the flower has gold markings that make it look like the flower's stem and there is also brass mesh behind the domino. 
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / framed cards in shadowboxes on: July 02, 2005 10:07:15 PM
My friend is graciously letting me sell my work in his spa and these are some of the new ventures that I'm getting into.  I have been selling cards and magnets, and thought I'd branch out into "art" if you can call it that.  Here are a few of the picture that I'm selling for $24.  Do you think that's a fair price?  The back is covered with brown postal-type paper just like a normal piece of art would be so that it looks very neat.  I also put those little felt feet and a hanger on the back.  It's kind of hard to tell what they look like in real-life, I guess because the pics are kind of small.  Sorry.

25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / smirnoff twisted bottlecap magnets on: July 02, 2005 09:49:38 PM
I've been really getting into using found objects for my crafting--so much cheaper than buying everything.  I was at a party and stole 3 bottlecaps from some opened Smirnoff Twisted drinks.  I lost one of them, but made two bottlecap magnets out of the other two.  I wish I had the other green one.  This would have made a cute set of three for a little gift or something.

They're pretty much embellished with paper, beads, etc. and covered with a coat of diamond glaze.  I love that the bottle caps on these drinks are such lovely colors.
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / embellished pug magnet on: July 02, 2005 09:47:13 PM
Hi all,
My husband has a co-worker who has three pugs and I found this pug magnet at Target, but it looked so plain, so....
I embellished a charm (that says love on the other side) with the first letter of the dogs' names and microbeadz and then topped it off with a clear swarovski bead for some sparkle and the illusion of a diamond-encrusted collar.   Cheesy

She really liked it and it was super-easy to make.
27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Father's Day Card on: June 07, 2005 10:54:05 AM
A few months ago, I found this metal handle in the Target parking lot.  Much to the chagrin of my husband, I picked it up and saved it.  I used it last night to make my dad's Father's Day Card and added washers and a cotter pin that I found in our hardware cabinet.   I thought the result was simple and funny.  Now I want more metal handles to make mouths with, but I can't figure out where this one came from.

28  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Microsoft Frontpage? on: April 20, 2005 10:17:23 PM
Has anyone used Microsoft Frontpage to create their website?  I'm looking at this program since I use Windows and Microsoft products, etc.  It's also quite a bit less costly than Dreamweaver and Adobe GoLive.  Am I missing something if I don't go with the more expensive programs?  I am teaching myself HTML and taking some online courses so I'll have some knowledge of what's going on, but I'm wondering if Frontpage will give me the versatility I need.  Any thoughts?
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / magnet made using the blade from saran wrap on: March 24, 2005 09:30:21 PM
Here's a domino magnet I made using the blade of a saran wrap box that I had torn off to throw away.  When I looked at it, it reminded me of an embellishment that I'd have to pay for at the craft store.  I cut off the serrated edge and that left this scalloped edge that I thought was really cute.  I threaded wire through the holes and then added a heart bead.  Hope you like it.

30  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / magnet display on: March 23, 2005 06:59:07 PM
I'm going to be selling these magnets at a local spa that a friend owns and found this way to display them at Home Depot.  It's flashing for roofs and cost about 40 cents.  It's basically a galvanized steel sheet that is folded in the middle.
I had to sand the edges a little, but it is just sturdy enough to hold about 12 domino magnets without tipping. 

What do you think?  I'm selling these for $5.  Do you think that is too much?  I figured they could do double duty as a gift/card.
