I have done things!   Shocked

Not only have I moved the nigthmare of a craft room into an entirely different nightmare of a room, I have done crafty things, too!

My son informed me 2 hours before school that he needed a hippie costume for groovy week.

Fortuntately, I am a confirmed crafting hoarder. 
Before his very eyes, love beads

a fringed vest that was put together in 5 minutes using a t-shirt as a "fake it til you make it" pattern

We also "tie-dyed" an orange t-shirt by twisting it, rubber banding it, and sticking it in bleach water for a few minutes.  No pictures, though.  He liked it and hid it. 

I have also successfully (finally after 4 years) used my loom knit thing for the first time. 

The loom knit people lie when they say "hat sized".  Unless you are making hats for newborns or dolls. Fortunately, "second daughter", otherwise known as my daughter's BFFFFF (because there just aren't enough forevers in BFF) actually Does make dolls.  So, a hat for one of her dolls, and I move up a ring in the set.

YAY ME!  I crafted the things!

AIMR, about using the seed beads on projects...if I'm using a container that has all the same colored beads that I want to use for a project, I just run the needle thru the pile of beads till one happens to go on the needle.  I usually get more than one bead on the needle doing that but I just slide it off (I knot after every bead.).  Maybe that will help?

That's actually the best/easiest way to do it for general beading when it comes to seed beads.  They are a bit of a pain, no matter what you are doing with the little buggers!  Smiley

I was thinking perhaps making a line of them and then weaving the thread between them...but that wouldn't necessarily be as secure... HMMM   *mumbles to self, wanders off to find the seed beads and some thread*

It's been a while since I've done much of my style of doodling (I don't consider what I do zentangling as I've been doing it for many many years Smiley )

That lion is gorgeous!  Amazing art!
I have to admit, I LOL'ed at this statement, because I have thought for quite some time that there are people making TONS of money off what kids did to their classwork during lectures in middle and high school in the 1980s.  Smiley

O.O  How'd you do that???   Tongue

I'll see what I can do about adding a glow photo sometime tonight.  I'll set it in the sun for a few hours and see what I can do.

Teesha Moore patches!!! oh that peachy fabric with the butterflies is gorgeous! Very nice Cheesy I would love to see your halloween hoopla wall! So far in the new house I just have my unicorn hoopla up. Im still in the planning stages for the rest of it.

The lighting was very odd.  The patch is actually...dark baby pink? with butterflies that are dark pink, orange any mustard yellow.

LOL!  The Halloween hoopla wall is packed up into one or the other of the *whispers* six totes *normal voice* in my storage area.   I would have Halloween up all year long, everywhere, but Hubster says that causes it to "lose something" at decorating time.  
I HAVE been able to get away with one "year round" decoration, though.  Smiley

I have been off radar for awhile.  Things have been...stressful at home, and are about to become even moreso.  But, I have indeed been crafting.  I just haven't been posting. Or taking photos. Or...well...anyway.  

Here are two completed projects that I actually DID think to take photos of to post.  Smiley  

I made a little hoopla for my Halloween Hoopla wall.  

My first Teesha Moore patch.  I'm not thrilled with the stitching, but I definitely enjoyed making it.

I was at the thrift store and ran across this piece of Fabric for a quarter, and fell in love with the too cute monsters and spiders, all sitting on a web. 

There wasn't a lot of it.  Something a bit more than a fat quarter, but less than a half yard.  I cut most of it up into a fat quarter, and a smallish piece was left. 

That piece stared at me on my desk for a few days, saying "PST!  You need to make a hoopla...hoopla...Hoopla...HOOPLA!" 

So, I grabbed the glow thread and did a simple stitching of the web.  Really simple, but it's going to be cute as a button on my Halloween Hoopla wall. 

Sadly, it is sideways.  Tongue

I bookmarked this gallery when I saw it, because of the potential awesomeness of Halloween goodies. 

So far...DROOL is coming from my mouth...


I am DYING of happiness for all of you...and maybe just a tiny bit of jealousy so far.  Smiley
