1  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / knitters and hookers wanted! on: August 19, 2006 03:58:34 PM
I work in this really cute little cafe attached to a Yarn Store called the Yarn Garden here in SE Portland.  The coffee and tea is excellent but no one knows about us!  Please come in and knit with me!  We will be having live music this fall to help promote a knitting group.  Come to the Yarn Garden Sipperie at 14th and Hawthorne! 
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Edward Scissorhands shrine and more! 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

These are some autumn fellas I've made from these pod things I keep finding on the ground.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / altered-alphabet-a-long? on: September 12, 2005 03:05:48 AM
I've really been wanting to collaberate and share ideas with other "alterers" out there but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of us out there.  I saw a "nonsense alphabet" altered book and it looked like a fun new project and I was wondering if anyone elso would be interested in this.
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Hayao Miyazaki swap goodies here! on: August 23, 2005 07:27:04 PM
I just recieved my first confirmation that a package has been sent, so I thought I should get the gallery up and going!  I really can't wait to see everyone's crafty ideas!  I still have several ideas that I just couldn't have ready in time but may have to store in mental memory for round 2.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 experimental handbags on: August 23, 2005 07:17:34 PM
I've always wanted to make bags, but somehow kinda forgot how to do linings and the such so after a few days of lurking about the purse galleries and posts, I came up with these...
Here's the lining which is basically the same idea on the others...

I used chopsticks for the handles on this one:


8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first resin neckalce on: August 11, 2005 01:01:13 AM
I very recently discovered the joys of plastic resin and this is my first COMPLETED project with it,


I arranged some beads in an inverted dome shape thing meant to hold paint, ( a la palatte) and then poured the resin in.  I painted the back of the pendant black and sealed the thing and strung it up into this necklace.

Here's a few more pendants awaiting adornment:
Sorry the pics are blurry, the one on the far right is REAL pressed flowers!

If there are any other resin users reading this, I could use some tips!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My first Fairy Art Doll!!! I'm so proud sad she's a gift... on: August 09, 2005 07:27:17 PM
My friend and I decided to do our own little craft swap and this is the little fairy art doll I've made for the alter that I'm going to swap.  I'm so excited about the way she came out I had to post pics although her alter isn't done yet.

here she is a little closer:

I used an old tin spice can for the base of her body, resin and and old soda can for her head, a hinge attaches her legs, and lots of other weird stuff makes her up.

Please let me know what you think...
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / it's madness, it's decoupage, it's decoupage madness! on: August 03, 2005 10:12:31 AM
I love Royal Coat glue and sealant! It makes decouge so easy and wrinkle free!  I came across an old, beat up book in my parent's garage and have breathed new life into the beautiful artwork as litlle mobile thingies.

Sorry the pictures came out so blurry...but you get the idea.

Here's how cool an aol tin can look after an appointment with the propane torch and some intense crafting:
