21  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Lip balm question! on: March 23, 2008 03:32:47 AM
Sort of, I have a webpage full of printables, and I haven't updated it or re-vamped it in a long time. At some point I made a box for lip balms, and it's one of the designs that needs re-doing, but I put my lip balm in tubes. So I'm not sure what size to make a box for an average sized lipbalm container.
Please help me. Getting this part of my page re-vamped was my big project for this weekend.
The original box. I made it 1.75 x 1.75x 1 inch originally.

22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Green Lantern ring (with pattern) on: January 23, 2008 11:07:10 AM
I graphed out a couple versions of Green Lantern rings this morning, then had to make one of them.

The ones on the left are Kyle type rings, and the ones on the right are Hal type rings. (oh yeah.. I'm a comic geek)
I did the Hal ring on the top right in odd count peyote, then stitched just the motif/logo and square stitched that on the ring. Extend the ring part as long as you need to fit around your finger.

A close up so you can see a bit more of the detail and how it's layered.

Stitched in Japanese cylinder beads, with silamide and a size 12 sharp (short) needle.
Thanks for looking!
23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / iPod cozy with a handmade button on: January 17, 2008 12:27:20 PM

I gave my son an ipod for his birthday, and he asked me if I could get him a cover of some sort for it, I asked if a crocheted one would do for now, and he said no problem. He picked the dark blue yarn, then I realized I didn't have any buttons that would go with it and not be "girly".
So I made one with a bottle cap and a bit of wire. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
Hooked out of Lion Brand worsted weight cotton with a size F hook.
Thanks for looking!
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / resin and beads on: January 04, 2008 06:02:52 PM

The cab is one I made out of resin molded in a watercolor dish, and mixed with Sprinklettes glitter. I did the beadwork with size 11 beads.

25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shiny and recycled.. on: December 07, 2007 03:29:26 AM
Another matchbook notebook made with scrap cardboard from a package, but this time I covered it with used/washed well aluminum foil, then I used some black acrylic paint to bring out the detail.

More details on my blog, but it was really easy. I used spray adhesive to take the foil down to the cardboard.
Thanks for looking!
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New earrings- brick stitch on: November 12, 2007 07:41:39 AM
So.. funny thing about these earrings. I make a lot of brick earrings, but I didn't have a pair of triangle earrings I made myself. So I decided to make myself a pair of triangle earrings.

The pattern is at Beadwork at BellaOnline. I made them to go with an article with graph paper for earrings I posted, but also because I wanted a pair of triangle earrings.
My darling husband told me they were pretty, but didn't suit me. A sentiment echoed by one of my best friends and my sister who was considerably more.. blunt.
So the day after I finished them, I graphed out *another* skull (I have a lot of skull bead patterns) and this weekend, I made myself a great big pair of skull earrings, the base row is 17 beads wide, done in delicas.

My husband likes this pair much better for me. I yelled "Don't stick me in a box! Don't put all your expectations on me for what's normal." He just rolled his eyes and walked away.

Thanks for looking!
27  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Stockings my daughter made on: November 11, 2007 11:15:08 AM
She's 12, and handstitched them out of felt and glued the designs she made for them.
This is the one she made for herself.

This is the one she made for her brother.

28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stecilled little tote on: November 11, 2007 11:10:22 AM
I got the tote at Michaels after Halloween for 50, so I picked up 4 of them. This is the first one I finished, with bedazzler rhinestones and halloween ribbon accents. The dusty look of it is actually glitter that hasn't been brushed off yet.

Here's the stencil if you want it.

I used acrylic paints, and instead of using wire and tape to hold the islands in place, I just left the little bridges (the light blue lines) then painted over them after I removed the stencil.
Thanks for looking!
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ladybug hat on: September 08, 2007 02:04:45 PM
as I've mentioned before, my 12 yo daughter loves kooky fun hats, and I love making them for her, it seems like no matter how nutty my idea is, she loves it, or at least she's loved all the hats I've made her so far. This is the newest one.

It's made with worsted weight cotton.
Thanks for looking!
30  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Twinkie Matchbook notepad on: August 27, 2007 11:21:19 AM

Made from the side of a Twinkie box and a sheet of paper cut into 16ths. I've been working on a list for my blog of things that can be done with a cereal box, and this is one of my favorite quickie projects so I made this as an example.
My tween loves these so much.
Thanks for looking!
