I got my package from idioskosmos on Friday!

It all came inside this lovely box, covered in blue jewels on the sides.

On the inside was the Greyjoy's motto and a hidden kraken on the bottom of the box! She made me two magnets, one of LittleFinger and one of Arya, my two favourite characters, as well as a beautiful book thong and a carved mocking bird stamp!

You can see what the stamp looks like on the side of the box lid.

Littlefinger is on my fridge now, inbetween Batman and Robin! (Robin doesn't look too happy about it)

Thank you so much, idioskosmos! Everything you sent me is amazing and I love it!
I hope my package gets to you soon and you like what I made for you!

3  Custom Fabric Mini Books in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by rosered on: October 09, 2009 07:42:46 PM

www.spoonflower.com recently did a free swatch day where you could order two swatches of any weight fabric at no cost! A swatch works out to be 8 x 8 inches, not very big but there's still a lot you can do with a piece of fabric that size!

I got a swatch of the upholstery weight fabric to test how it would hold up as a book  cover. So here are the two tiny books I made for jotting down notes. They are just over 3 x 2.75 inches big, and they have 40 pages of mixed papers in them. I always like to have some kind of book in my bag to jot down little notes and stuff on and that is exactly what I plan to use these things for!

4  Coraline Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by rosered on: March 08, 2009 08:44:50 PM

My friend Mike and I have been getting together to do some tag team crafting to make this Coraline doll (inspired by the recent stop motion movie) for our friend's birthday! Since we gave it to her today I can finally post some pictures of it! I won't lie it's been pretty hard sitting on these photos to not ruin the surprise.

More info and photos at my blog

And at Mike's blog!

6  Character bust experiment in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rosered on: January 24, 2009 06:06:05 AM

I bought a few cubes of Sculpey III a couple weeks ago when it happened to be on sale and yesterday I finally tried fooling around with it. I've never made any kind of model before so this was definitely a learning experience. I was trying to emulate my drawing style to make a 3d version of one of my characters and I'm pretty pleased with the results. There is a piece of wood dowel inside the neck to support the weight of the head. I think on my next go I will pick up some super sculpey and some actual modeling tools though, as I did this one with nothing but an exacto knife and a mechanical pencil. You can tell I left it in the oven a bit too long because it burned a little bit, but I'm going to try painting it so hopefully that will cover up those imperfections!

Here's a page from my sketchbook to compare my drawing style. I was basing this off the blue haired guy on the right mostly.

EDIT: Here's the painted version!

In between making some more Blue Beard pins I made this guy. When I was finished I thought he looked a bit like a Musketeer.

I just made this little pin out of felt that I sewed and glued together. It's just over two inches tall

9  Quick Paintings in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by rosered on: June 06, 2008 05:15:11 PM
Someone pointed out to me that these quick paintings I have been doing on card scraps are pretty much ATC's (although the size is off on a few I'm sure).

So anyways, I thought I would share what I have done in this series so far. Thanks for looking!

10  $3 Portable Light Table in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by rosered on: May 03, 2008 08:30:07 PM

I have a big light table my dad built for me that I use pretty often to transfer sketches onto other paper and stuff. Since I am going to be away from home all summer, I needed to think of something that I could use instead to work with. This is what I came up with! I'm posting the probably not so stellar instructions on how I did it in case anyone wants to attempt to make one of their own.

(Also I have no idea if this actually qualifies as a light fixture or not, but I figured it was worth post it up and giving it a shot)

Materials used:

Wood shadow box
2 LED night light things like these ones http://www.goodmart.com/products/830447.htm
some tin foil
large bulldog clip
piece of grooved plastic
small screwdriver

I got the box and LED lights at the dollar store for a buck each, everything else was stuff I had laying around, and the plastic was salvaged from the trash. Bringing the cost of this project to a grand total of $3

The Shadow box came with a piece of glass that slid into it, but I didn't want that so just took it out. I cut a piece of tin foil to fit inside the box and glued it into place. The LED things came with a shield over them so you sort of press down on the top of it for the lights to come on and it has a sticky plate on he back that the whole thing clicks into so you can open it to change the batteries. I took the shields off using a screw driver so the light would be less focused and then used the sticky plate thing on the back to affix it to the bottom of the tin foil covered inside of the box.

I measured the box and then scored the plastic with a knife to size. Then I snapped the plastic and sent some shards flying, but pretty much got a nice rectangle sized piece. Then I sanded the edges around so it wouldn't be sharp and annoying. Then I just turned on the LEDs by pressing the button in the middle of the three lights, placed the piece of plastic onto of the box, and held it in place with a big bulldog clip.

And there you go! It actually works really well and shines through stuff like thick watercolour paper. It's a bit hard to take a picture of it in action though.

Thanks for looking!
