TheDishclothQueen... there is a hair wreath to be seen here, made from 15 different people's hair: http://www.hairworksociety.org/wreath/wreath.htm

There are some more pictures of other works on the hairworksociety.org site as well. I enjoy looking at them all, but um, I think I'll leave this craft for others to play with! Smiley

Finally found it! Cheesy

Ok, so today = best birthday ever  Grin Today I turn 24, and I also recieved from Silver Ilix! She picked me for a heatable bag, but also added a surprise bonus! The brightest teal, softest knit shawl~


Wow, how I wish you could send scent through the internet... it's smells like heaven! This is something I've been wanting for so long, but I dont have a sewing machine that works well, nor the skills to use one... So I've been really excited to recive it since she picked me~

The added bonus! You guys will have to forgive the mirror pic, no one is home at the moment to take one for me... it is truely amazing! Hopefully I'll have some better pics to post in a few hours~

I just cant stop smiling... Thank you so much Holly!

I'm not quite sure what everyone means by the scotch tape...I didnt put anything on the backs [the steel wooled side] or the front of mine. they came out of the oven perfectly fine. didnt smear at all. I took them out of the oven & went straight to making jewelry & other lovely things

Well, on shrinky dinks the color will sometimes wipe off the back (where your colored), so I imagine the same would happen with this as well Smiley After you bake, of course! I always coat the back of my 'dinks w/ gloss sealent...

Quote from: Kitten0Face
Does this work in a toaster oven? Huh

It should... I use my toaster over for my Shrinky Dinks all the time Smiley

Hello! I'm in Georgia, USA~ I turn 24 on the 19th this month, and still dont know what I want ot be when I 'grow up' ;P I'm currently 'in between jobs', but hopefully will be starting up my own small business soon. I love crafting, some of my 'specialties' are felting, beading, reconstruction/repurposing (really, if it's something, I try to make it used for something else!), papercrafts, some light hand-sewing, and an assortment of other random things ^^ My favorite colors are black, red, silvers, purples... I am not a fan of yellow, orange, or brown! Basically, my Wists read me like a book!

Here is my wishlist Cheesy

Crafty Things
- Needlefelting tool, like Clover's
- Bookbinding // Soap making // Sewing // Crochet // Knitting Kit.... I really like learning new things, so any sort of kit would go over greatly with me Cheesy
- Wool roving (any colors)

- Heating Pad- like these, or however you choose to make them Smiley I will be a very happy girl to have this! Thank you Silver Ilix! I'm so excited!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

- An apron... I prefer the kind that go all the way up... like this: http://www.henryandlulu.com/images/product/127ED_JES0020200.jpg But I'll love a cute ]little apron too

- Anything inspired from my Wist list Smiley http://www.wists.com/emiko  There's a lot on there, so I'm fairly confident you'll find something Smiley

- A journal/planner/calander/something that will help me actually keep track of my *ahem* period  Lips sealed It might be a wierd request/wish, but I'm terrible at this on my own~

- A tote bag to carry felting tools, wool, yarn, crochet hooks... So I can carry my crafty things around Cheesy

I'm pretty easy to please, but if you're not sure about something, just ask Cheesy I know my list seems kind of short, but the meat of it all is on the Wist list. I'll try to add some more stuff later Smiley

Thank you!

Alrighty, here's my update XD

Day 6

Two bracelets + three strands each = 6! Yay math!

Day 5

Probably my favorite day! A tea ball and samples of five teas! Oh, I was so thrilled to open this one, I used to have a tea ball just like this but one of my old roomates stole it when they moved... But now I have another!

Day 4

4 perler bead coasters with skulls and Mario mushrooms! What's funny is I made my partner coasters for day 4 as well~

Day 3

Gelly Roll pens <33333333 I love these kind of pens so much, I have a special pencil box just for my Sakura/Gelly Roll pens  Lips sealed

Day 2
No image yet, but I recieved two hand painted shirts- A black one with white wings painted on the back, and a red one that... I haven't figured out yet  Huh Does it say love, devilninny? I think it does, but I'm not quite sure XD

devilninny pm'd me to tell me that my day one didn't come out as cool as she had planned, but I love it  Kiss She made a shrine?/box about Capricorn, my zodiac, and an awesome Capricorn polymer sculpture!

One of his horns broke in transit, but once I find some glue he'll be fixed up in a jiffy Wink

THANK YOU SO MUCH devilninny!

guess what guess what guess what!

i got my package from my partner!  she mailed on the 13th and i got it today!  she still wasnt online to let anyone know, but its heeeeeeere!  yay!

i will be taking pictures and mailing out her package!  i will also consider all my angel packages personal swaps and send you a thank you in return after the holidays.  but if you havent sent yet, dont worry about it!


I'm glad it's there! And sorry to anyone if I caused some stress- I recently moved and we kinda-sorta might have spent a little too much money on movers and stuff at the time so I didn't have enough to send the massive box to devilninny  Cry And apparenty my new place doesn't really exist to Comcast or Charter so we haven't been able to get internet set up  Undecided I only have my boyfriend's work computer's to use on the weekend's now and sometimes his phone (blaaaaah, i hope i dont have to move for a very long time)!

so devilninny, take lots of pictures (I hope #12 didn't go bad! let me know, i can make better ones XD) and please post any you have of what you sent me in the meantime Wink
