261  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Book Mark Swap (Sign up CLOSED Send By June 15) on: June 09, 2005 09:59:15 AM
I just mailed mine out (not even 15 minutes ago), and I made sure to copy the addresses exactly as in the PM (I printed it out even!) so they should get to their destinations alright! The place I dropped off the envelopes at says they pickup at 3:45 or 4:45 this afternoon, so about four hours from now they'll start their journey.

I also scanned them so if for some reason they don't arrive or if their new owners don't have access to a scanner I can post the pics.

Actually, for the bathroom part, you'd be allowed to leave whenever you need to but it'd take away from your craft time as well. There'd also be a break between projects.
Another great idea is that people watching in chat room could say what they see in the room you're crafting in that they'd like you to make into something. It wouldn't be so much having to have the best of the projects on the list but also responding to the people who will eventually vote for you.
263  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Checkerboard with Muffin Pan Storage by dreamisle on: May 31, 2005 01:04:04 PM
Ugh! I'm such a failure! Well, I can honestly say that I could have hunted out better stuff at other dollar stores, but my brilliant idea of making a checkerboard still can't outdo some of the projects I see here. Great job everyone!  Smiley

For my checkerboard centerpiece I spent $5 at the 1 Dollar Bargain place.
  • $1 - Foam sheets used for the board and decorations on the cups and the little throne pieces that go under 'kinged' pieces (not shown)
  • $1 - Muffin baking pan used for the base of this centerpiece to store the pieces in cups
  • $1 - Plastic glass-looking pieces for playing the game. 3 colors, 16 of each piece (12 and 4 replacement)
  • $2 - Two votive candle holders for the end of the board, either to hold captured pieces or for candles or sand or whatever I'd use if I wanted to make it adapt to the theme of a room.
  • Hot Glue not included in total
  • Use of exacto knives not included in total
The board part rests nicely atop the pan and the pieces fit beneath without making bumps. Since the pieces don't stack well (at all), I cut extra squares of thefoam to make little star shaped 'thrones' underneath the 'kinged' pieces. The votive cups stay in fairly well but I haven't exactly tried shaking the whole thing upsidedown yet. I used blue and white for the board because the yellow foam didn't match the yellowish-green-ness of the yellowish-green pieces.  Undecided

264  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Vampire Themed Book (My First Little Book!) on: May 30, 2005 05:41:46 PM
Hey there! I figured I'd post this tonight so I don't forget in the ruckus around going back to school for my last few days, mowing the lawn, and submitting my photos for the Craftster challenge tomorrow! So here's my book, I hope ya don't think it's too shabby  Undecided

1 2-3 4-5 6-7 8-9 10-11 12-13 14-15 16-17 18-19 20-21 22-23 24-25 26

Here's a few comments I'd like to make on it:
  • The bat and arrow and heart stamps I made myself using extra scraps from sheets of foam I had that I cut out with my exacto knives and hot glued to those little toy capsules in the machines at the store.
  • The blood spatter type paper was done with red food coloring spattered on the paper.
  • The base paper is cut from a paper grocery bag.
  • The foil paper is from gum wrappers.
  • The quotes are from Dracula and Interview with the Vampire, typed in Courier New and printed out. The names and movies and such were typed in Typewriter New Roman, a free font.
  • There are a few pockets in the book, and I plan to add more to them, and possibly some little popup book type sliding mechanisms for animation. I love hands-on type stuff!
  • Yeah, there are a few pieces of shaving cream cards put in there too  Embarrassed Sorry, I got cuaght in the fad and it might not match the blue stamps or red blood spatter, but can I get an A for effort?

Alrighty, I'm done blabbin', so tell me what you think! Anyone, anyone???

I cut out clean pieces from a grocery bag and I'm currently making them into a mini book. I love the contrast I get from using regular paper shapes glued onto the bag paper and also using foil gumwrappers!
266  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: ARG! stamps... on: May 27, 2005 06:49:45 PM
You should always write your name and address on your stamp booklets in case you lose them. That way someone will mail them back to you, although at that point they'd be useless  Undecided
267  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: This **** Is B.A.N.A.N.A.S (2 pictures) on: May 27, 2005 06:47:56 PM
Yeah, now I'm listening to Jane Says Smiley
All I have on iTunes is Jane Says, Been Caught Stealing, and Just Beacause (from new album), but I also listen to some 'Cursive' and 'Coheed and Cambria'. Maybe we could do some sort of project together like make a Jane's Addiction and No Doubt mix cd cover for each other? That might be fun!
268  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: This **** Is B.A.N.A.N.A.S (2 pictures) on: May 27, 2005 05:36:38 PM
Heck yeah Tragic Kingdom was the best! I have Sixteen and Just a Girl mixed with some of the older Jane's Addiction songs on my iTunes playlist, but at the moment I'm listening to some indie bands.

I like the shirt, but the asterisks look abnormal being all up there instead of centered, even though that's how fonts normally have their asterisks...
269  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Re: Moveable parts on: May 27, 2005 04:37:33 PM
Sounds good, like maybe a paper craft for this would be a popup book with sliders or tabs, or some kind of home made toy. I like it Smiley
270  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / 12 hour weekend webcam compulsive craft challenge on: May 27, 2005 04:32:56 PM
I have the idea least likely to ever be accepted but it's crazy enough to post Cheesy

12 hour weekend webcam compulsive craft challenge

Craftsters with webcams would be allowed to enter the contest. They'd have to stay up for 12 hours crafting on demand while a live feed on the main Craftster page had Leah's instructions on what the next project was, and you had to craft in front of the camera for everyone and stay up all 12 hours working!

hahaha, it's the most fiendesh challenge idea ever (maybe not)
