1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Pets and smoke on: December 26, 2012 05:37:51 AM
Even though I haven't swapped much, I noticed something that really bumms me lots of times when I open a package from a pet/smoking home: A strong stink of smoke, and/or lots of pet hair

I'm not allergic to anything, and these things usually don't bother me, but that doesn't mean I don't deserve a nice clean package... It's very dissappointing, and make the item feel cheap and less thoughtful (and I know how much work goes into it) when it smells bad, or filled with enough pet hair to make a carpet ..

I have a (new Grin) pet, and I know I'm gonna make sure every package I send is washed and cleaned of pet hair, and that my dog won't have the chance to sit on/next to it.

It's just food for thought for all the other pet owners and the smoking people  Smiley I've also been wondering if others have ran into this situation

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / preparing wood for painting on: June 13, 2012 12:09:01 AM
Hello all~
I wanna start doing paintings on wood slices, but I don't know how to prepare the wood so the painting will last the longest...
I will probably use oil paints (might use acrylics if I'm short on time) and don't know the type of wood.

So, how do I prepare wood so the painting won't chip? Do I need to take additional steps when the painting is finished to preserve it?
Also does the type of wood matter?

Thanks to anyone who'll answer (:
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Addicted to shrinkies! <pic heavy> on: February 17, 2012 01:13:25 PM
Finally found a store in my area that sales shrink plastic sheets!

Made this for the boyfriend on Valentines day (We're both uber geeks ;> ). He loved it, and it was fun seeing his excitement over such a small thing Smiley

Saw lots of these "bird out of cage" necklaces, and absolutely LOVED the concept. I think the cage came out great, hate the bird though...

Sister saw my companion cube, and asked me to make this so she'd have something to give to her boyfriend (who is apparently, an Adidas addict)

Not a shrinky, but I'm so proud of this Cheesy This is actually made from a butterfly wing polymer clay cane that I made. Took HOURS, and I was on the verge of giving up so many times. happy I didn't Smiley

5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / first amigurumi attempt :) on: January 25, 2012 12:01:04 PM
I've always wanted to learn crocheting, and since I spend most of my sundays and Thursdays on the roads, figured it's a damn good time to start Smiley

So after some researching and granny squares, decided it's time for amigurumi!

The first one is from a pattern I heavily modified so it'd be smaller (and also because of pattern misreading ;P )
I didn't have any safety eyes, and all I had were these buttons...

then my mom got really excited so she gave me her secret stash yarn (she used to knit us sweaters when we were kids), and I just had to use those greens Smiley I didn't use any pattern so I'm really proud with the outcome

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Lots of earrings and a teapot :> on: October 20, 2011 04:31:48 AM
Last weekend had lots of time to craft (with the boyfriend being away Wink ),so here're some of the creations:

I think the most successful thing I made in this batch: Ladybug earrings Smiley

cute tiny companion cube

my sis wanted the ribbons earrings and the skull

I'm a little teapot~

I actually dislike these, the colors are wayyyy too dark... and now I have this huge cane I don't want XP

7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Newbie here! ;) on: October 15, 2011 08:52:53 AM
Hey there :>
I've been lurking around this community long enough, and finally got the courage (and time ;P ) to join!
So.. My name's Liel, and I live in Israel. I'm 19 y/o.
I draw and paint since I can remember myself, and over the last years I started experimenting with... well, everything (that's how I got here basically) >w< Sculpting, knitting, sewing, bead art - I always try new things, though polymer clay and digital-art would always remain my favourites Smiley

Besides that, I'm a light gamer -> Portal, Prototype, Assassin's Creed and such~

Well, that's it  Grin Can't wait to share art and meet new friends  Cheesy
