1  Edward Scissorhands shrine and more! in Completed Projects by kjtalula on: March 20, 2006 05:37:56 PM
Here's my ode to Edward:

and a bit closer:

I encased the picture in resin
found the scissors at Micheals
made the heart cookie cutter with quilling paper and wire and lots of varnish

Here's another little shrine I made recently:

it says: hand in hand as lovers they stole out into the land of the living

2  Re: Feminist Toolbox (Women use tools too dernit!!) in Completed Projects by kjtalula on: February 26, 2006 10:22:09 PM
katatonicP,  You are an awewsome crafter and such a thoughtful gift giver!  Your friend is lucky, and you have inspired me to glam up my tools and their housings!

When I moved out of my parents home, my dad gave me the toolbox that his dad, (grandpa) gave to him when he moved out!  I was so touched by this gesture because my dad is not much of a talker, he showed his love by making me change all the wheels on my first car,showing me how to check the fluids, helping me build shelves for my books, and empowering me with knowledge.  All of the tools included in the box are really old and sturdy.
The bigger toolbox was originally given to me, (by my dad) when I needed an art box and asked for it because he no longer had a motorcycle that the box was for.  Hence the racing stickers all over it.  Now have so many tools that I use it for it's original purpose again.
Four years ago I asked for a drill for Christmas and my dad gave the one pictured with extra drill bits!
Now I get excited in the power tool sections of stores.
After seeing the pics of your gift I want to glam up my boxes and tools!
I got this book a couple years ago for my best friend:

It's got your basic how-to's for any girl to fix things around the house on her own, and all of the drawings are of women. I guess the cover features the propaganda issue that acetoneends mentions,
that said, i have to say, and i mean no disrespect to your work, but, Rosie and other war-time images of women working are often not empowering for women.  They are propaganda pure and simple.  The women always have their hair and makeup perfect behind their bandanas and welding masks... the message behind their images was, "you need to work for the war, but as soon as you're done, go back to your home because that's your real place in society."  Our society, however, does not often look past propaganda so culturally we've accepted these images as feminist...
but I don't mind because I like to dress up and wear makeup for myself and the fun that I can have with it.

I haven't visited this site recently, or even gotten over here to the computer because I've been hard at work...

although the faeries posted prior to this have been sold, these girls are brand new!

8  Re: Jewelry Making Supplies Storage in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by kjtalula on: September 13, 2005 05:30:48 AM
I used to keep all my beads in a thing with little drawers in it but I hated how I usually had to pull open every drawer to find what I wanted.  I recently asked my bf to bring me home some "to go" ramikens from the restaurant where he works and put all my beads into those.  A couple of days later I found these shallow desk drawers by the trash. 

Now I can see everything at once and so much clearer!  The drawers stack nicely on top of each other when put away on shelves.

Emilytate got her package and asked if I had any pics to post until she gets her camera running again.  I only have one but it's of my favorite thing I made I think...it's one of the robots from Castle in the Sky that I made out of Fimo and then painted.

OK guys, I know I've been slacking off a little lately but I just couldn't get to computer in the last couple of days...
But then I got my package from DragonsMuse!

This is a CUTE shirt in my favorite colour green, (to match my eyes), a felt cell phone/ipod cozy, and a key chain.

She found a Totoro address book that will fit purrfectly in my purse and made a copy of the soundtrack.  (I was REALLY excited about the soundtrack because I sing the totoro song all the time to my BF's dismay but now I can pretend I know Japanese and sing it that way too!)

This is all the fun Japanese candy that was sent along with the other goodies...

She also made me some awesome magnets but I only have a camera phone to take pics with right now and the pictures didn't do them justice so you'll have to imagine them.

There was also a bracelet with Totoro shrinky dink charms and soot ball earrings which I will have to post later.
Thank you so much DragonsMuse!  I was so happy all afternoon playing with and showing off all my new toys, you are a terrific crafter!

I promise I will get an update posted of where's everybody's at tonite!
