1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Baby photo board with template on: November 04, 2017 07:23:45 AM
I have a friend who's having a baby and needed some baby shower gifts.  I'd seen something like this about a year ago and took a pic of it for future reference and decided this would be perfect for her!



It's vinyl on a chalkboard, so she can add whatever she wants to it. There's room at the bottom for a special message- first tooth, I'm walking.... whatever.

I created the template for this, and I'll share it here for anyone who has a vinyl cutter and would like to use it! It can be resized to whatever you need.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More vintage-ish jewelry on: October 30, 2017 01:54:04 PM
Our craft sale is getting closer, so of course, I'm working on more jewelry for the table!






3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Jewelry boutique insanity.... (pic insane, too) on: October 20, 2017 09:23:41 AM
MY DIL and I are gearing up to participate in some local holiday boutiques. I went crazy making jewelry yesterday. So get ready for a SLEW of photos.....




























...and here's the whole lot of them, waiting for chains and hooks and such...


Whew! Thanks for taking the time to check them all out!  Kiss
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / More zippered pouches for charity! on: October 17, 2017 08:13:28 AM
Well, I found some time finally to use a fraction of the donations that were sent our way for TLC women's shelter!

These bags feature totally donated materials:



And these ones are from fabrics in my own stash (some of which were shared by other Craftsters a while back), and donated zippers:




We're almost to our goal (65 bags) and I have NO DOUBT that we will surpass it BIG TIME, thanks to all the support we have received from you guys!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

**Just a note: I don't think we need any more donations for materials- you have been more than generous, and we thank you so, so much! However, Personal care items are desperately needed so if you feel you'd like to help, may I suggest that you go that route, if you can? Shipping those heavy items can get costly, but if you would like to send gift cards for nationwide chains like Kroger or Walmart or Target, even Dollar Tree or 99 Cents Only, that would be awesome! We also have Walgreens and CVS drug stores here locally. I do have receipts for tax deductions that I can send to you, also.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Even more shelter goodies! on: October 17, 2017 07:59:05 AM
Just when I think the boxes have stopped coming, I get another box just bursting with love! You guys are so AWESOME!! This one is from Jellybean89, who sent 23 large pieces of fabric, a spool of thread and 12 more zippers!



She also sent along a deodorant and a toothpaste for the shelter, just because she could.

I freaking love you guys!

Thank you, Jellybean!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Our cup runneth over! Craftster gals come through in a BIG WAY! on: October 09, 2017 03:50:02 PM
Again, this is not a project post so much as a YOU ALL FREAKING ROCK post!!

We received SO MUCH STUFF from you all for the zipper bags we're putting together for the TLC women's shelter! Seriously, it's more than we'll EVER need! Your generosity is above and beyond, and I get a little teary just thinking about how you all just step right up to help when there's a need somewhere, even if it's inconvenient, even if the need isn't earth-shaking. You guys are just... I've run out of adjectives to describe y'all. So maybe just check this out instead:



Y'all, I had to stand on a chair and I still had to hold the camera above my head just to fit all of this outpouring of love into the frame!  

So here's the breakdown:

Mandykaye - sent 16 large pieces of fabric

Smarrt - sent 16 large pieces of fabric

Whatthepuck - sent 84 zippers, most of them purple!  Roll Eyes There's probably an interesting story there...

Acadian Driftwood - sent 10 completed zipper pouches AND $20 cash to buy desperately needed personal care items for the ladies!

CraftADDchick - sent 4 completed zipper pouches, 9 lotions and a deodorant! I'd already taken the lotions and deodorant to the shelter, so here's the pic I took before I ran them down to the ladies:



And I got a whopper of a box from Steiconi containing:
8 large pieces of fabric
86 zippers
8 cones of thread
8 spools of thread

Can I just say... HOLY MACKEREL!!!?!?!!!!

You guys are so dang amazing! If my arms were big enough to reach to where you all are, I'd be hugging all of ya, including the ladies I already posted about!

I've received a lot of parcels, and I think I've accounted for everyone's donations. If I missed anybody please accept my apologies. I was waiting until I got the last of the packages so I could post everything at once, but I'm incredibly fallible. Just send me a PM if I forgot you coz you deserve love too!!  Grin

THANK YOU ALL SO VERY, VERY MUCH!!  Kiss Kiss
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Necklace swap round 2? Gift giving option? on: October 02, 2017 01:19:52 PM


Anyone interested in round 2 of this swap?

I'm not sure I personally need more necklaces, although I wouldn't complain about getting more! LOL! But with gift giving season about to get underway, I'm thinking it might be interesting to add some styles that are outside of my personal wheelhouse to my gift list. I'm thinking to add a section to the q'naire where styles and colors for gift giving could be added. That way, whether you're looking for gifts for loved ones, or to enhance your personal jewelry wardrobe, it's all good.

I'm thinking of groups of 3-4 crafters, and allowing y'all to go with either one or two groups.

Thoughts?
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Wicked t-shirt on: September 30, 2017 08:07:10 PM
I made this shirt for myself (Yay!) for Halloween (Yay!) and I'm looking forward to wearing it!

There were TONS of tiny little bits on this one, which made it rather a pain to stencil. So I'm glad it came out so well. It would have been a total bummer to go through all of that and have it be a bust!!  Grin

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Adventurous Key Holder on: September 27, 2017 08:55:04 PM
I made this for my daughter for her birthday. I hope she likes it! (The key is mine. I'd be out of my mind to give her a car...  Grin)

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Braggin' on my C-ster girls!! on: September 19, 2017 01:33:05 PM
You guys are AMAZING! Yep, totally, totally the bomb! (Do people still say "the bomb"? Too bad, I guess, coz I just said it!)

My DIL Chr1stChan and I are working with the TLC women's shelter here in our hometown. And when my fellow Craftsters heard that we could use a little help, they started coming through in spades!  Check this out SO FAR (I know that more pouches have been made and are on their way, so you'll see additions to this post in the future):



So here are the thankyou's so far:

To my bestie Gozer, who sent 35 zippers - In spite of some major health challenges, you stepped up to the plate and thought of others, when it would be so much easier to just focus on what you've got to deal with at the moment. You're truly the best and I love ya!

To Noxica, who sent 23 zippers and zipper tape with 12 pulls - shipping from Australia?!?!? Holy moly, that's commitment and you ROCK!

To TheMistressT, who sent 14 zippers - you've been evacuated and dealing with wildfires and firefighters all summer, but STILL took the time to help! HUGE hugs to you!

To Lovely Miss, who sent 16 completed pouches - with every other plate you keep spinning both on Craftster and elsewhere, I'm so thrilled that you would take the time to help out! You are awesome!

To AlwaysInMyRoom, who sent 10 completed pouches - you're another lady who always drops everything to help souls in need! You have one of the biggest hearts on C-ster! Thank you!

Our goal was 65 pouches for the ladies in the shelter. So far we have 34 completed pouches and enough zippers to make 84 MORE!

THERE IS STILL GOOD IN THE WORLD and Craftster members make up a big ol' slice of it!
