Here's are the pictures of the darling cupcake and korknisse I received from yelutci (we agreed beforehand to having the korknisse be a sort of...extra, because it takes very little time to make...)

It combines my themes of rainbows and cupcakes  Smiley

a better shot of the bottom half of the cupcake, which has a nice ribbing detail to make it look like a real cupcake wrapper...

My adorable new korknisse, which combines my themes of rainbows and gnomes (so cute!)

and finally, the lovely postcard that came with my package, decorated with stickers.

Thank you so much for everything yelutci, I really love my new tiny things Smiley

2  Webcomic in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by Sovietweed on: January 20, 2009 05:14:09 PM

I'm not sure if this post belongs here or not, but by my logic, because it is a series of drawings, and this is the board where you post projects that are drawings, it does. My boyfriend Thomas recently started a webcomic called On the Inside. He draws, writes, and publishes it himself, and it is hosted by a website called smackjeeves.com (which has many other user created webcomics for your browsing and reading pleasure). It contains adult humor and language, but nothing to raunchy, just some swearing and a mention of the male reproductive organs (though no drawings of them). He's really proud of it, but is a bit discouraged because it's not getting as many views as he'd hoped it would. So, I decided to try and spread the word for him, to tell the world about his creation. Check it out, and, if you like it, comment, or create an account and add it to your favs, or just tell your friends  Smiley

3  Donut Pincushion! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Sovietweed on: November 25, 2008 01:53:30 PM
I've been meaning to make a donut pincushion for the longest time now, and yesterday I finally sat down and made one. I'm happy with how it turned out, and I intend to make more because the pattern was very easy and quick. I used yarn from my stash, with the donut being Red Heart Super Saver (an assumption based on the texture), and the frosting being I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby (it has a bit of a shine to it!). My mom loved it so I might make her a couple for Christmas. http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32761 <-- Pattern I used

5  Abacus Calculator Cozy in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by Sovietweed on: September 05, 2008 11:57:38 PM
This semester, I'm taking calculus at a community college. Our first test is on Monday, and I want to make sure I'm prepared, so I've started studying a few days in advance. I went in to the computer room the other day to hit the books, when, much to my surprise, I discovered that my graphing calculator had gone missing!

Calculus book, check. Notes and paper, check. Pencil, check. Calcu- wait, an abacus!? How on earth am I supposed to use an abacus?! I can barely manage my high tech graphing calculator, let alone an ancient Chinese counting frame with no numbers...Upon closer inspection...

...I discovered that...

My graphing calculator was disguising itself as an abacus all along!

So now it has a cute new protective cozy, and I'll be the coolest girl in school  Cool

Notes: I don't have the making of pictures, because my camera was going on internal memory when I took them and I didn't realize that the card wasn't in it. I took some though, honest! To make this, I single crocheted 2 rectangles (one with a triangle on the end for the flap), using the calculator as a guide for size. The abacus was made with embroidery, with the frame being 2 rows of cable stitch and backstiching used for the black "wires" and putting the beads on. Then the two rectangles were stitched together on three sides, and the button loop was added to the triangle tip, with the button being sewed on last. It was not made to look like a traditional Chinese abacus, but rather, my interpretation of one. This is the first challenge I've entered, and I'm just proud I've finished it (on time, it's 11:57pm Arizona time on Friday Wink) and that it turned out cute like I was hoping ^_^

6  1st FO - iPod Nano Cozy! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Sovietweed on: August 27, 2007 09:35:46 PM
Hooray for simple, quick projects!
I finally finished something in crochet, an iPod cozy, using the tutorial for the iMonkies cozy as the base. It's simple and functional, and keeps my pod from getting scratched by the evil likes of keys and nail clippers, so I'm happy  (:

7  #@%&!! crosstitch! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Sovietweed on: June 10, 2007 12:09:31 AM
I got this one from the Subversive Cross Stitch book. Some of them are pretty funny, but the curses were a bit much for me, so I picked the one I found most amusing and most tame. I love how you can insert whatever phrase you want  Smiley I fiddled with the border a bit and did my own thing, I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

Question: What's the best setting to iron it on? Would a low heat, cotton setting, be alright? I used regular Aida cloth and regular cotton embroidery floss, but I'm afraid I'll burn it (I haven't done much ironing) o.o

8  My First Time - with a Cupcake in Needlework: Completed Projects by Sovietweed on: May 29, 2007 01:26:30 AM
I made this last August but finally got a digital camera to show it off, I'm so proud of it, though I think I went a little nuts with the decorations. It was a fun way to try out different knots and seedy looking stitches.

The tweezers are for size comparison. One of these lifetimes I think I'll cut it into patch size and sew it on a bag >.>

9  Barbie's arms earrings /: in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sovietweed on: May 29, 2007 01:17:26 AM
so I finally got a digital camera ^.^ and can show off my lovely crafts...I made these sometime in the middle of last year, and made leg ones too, but I dunno where those are.

only after hacking the arms and legs off did I realize, duh, painted red fingernails and wedding ring, this must be the 1960's Barbie body my mom had when she was a little girl  Embarrassed but the head was missing too! and it probably would have been thrown out. the body is still in my closet >.>

that massive looming shadow would be my cat's head, trying to chew on them. I gave him a crochet needle instead  Cheesy

hope you liked (:

10  Wine bottle cork earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sovietweed on: March 31, 2006 08:30:36 PM
So I was at the Goodwill the other night, looking for trinkets and baubles that could potentially be turned into whimsical jewelry, and I stumbled upon a bag of 30 wine bottle corks for .99 cents. I also stumbled upon a genuine small, ornate, bronze hookah for $2.99, but that's going to be put to other uses... Wink

the earrings, with me wearing them!

one of the earrings, closer...

...annnd the other

comments would be mucho appreciated  Smiley
