1  I love lamp. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Faithism on: April 09, 2009 10:50:23 AM
I designed and built this lamp last week. Its made from a thin cardboard and metal staples with simple coat-hanger-and-styrofoam mounting gear. Designed as a sconce, the white wire will eventually be hard-wired into the wall.

3  Recycled Pop-Can Candle Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Faithism on: January 13, 2008 10:24:06 AM
So I was sitting on the floor in my bedroom this afternoon when I spotted an empty pop-can sitting on my dresser. I was feeling a little crafty so I grabbed it, some cardboard, and an exacto knife. Then I grabbed a pencil, some sissors, another empty pop can as well as my trusty PVA. Next thing you know, I've got an adorable candle holder. It kind of raddles when you move it, though.

What do you think? Let me know if anyone wants the tutorial for it (I took pictures along the way =D ).

6  Baby Blanket in Weaving: Completed Projects by Faithism on: November 26, 2007 06:17:43 AM
My neice had a baby earlier this year and I decided to weave a baby-blanket. And, of course, when I gave it to her she said: "Oh! Is this knitted?".
I get that a lot.

Here it is:

Here is a closeup of the weave:

Luckily the colours matched the nursery perfectly.

8  Lemon Fondant Birthday Cake in Dessert by Faithism on: November 26, 2007 06:08:00 AM
Okay. So this was my first attempt with Fondant Icing. It turned out well...lets just say it was a learning experience. I had been warned by many of people, but many of websites, and even my Martha Stewart that fondant icing is not the easiest thing in the world to work with. But I did it anyway. For my best friend's 18th birthday.

Here it is:

with a closeup of the stars:

...and with candles:

What do you think?

The actual cake has four layers of lemon curd, then is covered with vanilla buttercream icing then covered with lemon-flavoured fondant icing. All recipes (minus the fondant which is store-bought) are Martha Stewart.

9  Hounds Tooth Scarf in Weaving: Completed Projects by Faithism on: November 26, 2007 05:59:27 AM
Hey everyone,

Here's my latest weaving project:

I decided that since the hounds tooth pattern is so popular right now, that I'd make a scarf out of it! I think it turned out well. I still have to finish the ends.

10  Brown, Paper Lunch bags in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by Faithism on: May 29, 2005 02:48:08 PM
I saw a post a while ago for using these bags as CD holders (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31577.0) and I've been inspired ever since. So my friend's birthday is coming up, and mom just bought me a whole pack of paper lunch bags to craft with, so I made this cute little bag to wrap it in:

Now, I'm incredably inspired to do more things with lunch bags. Does anyone have any ideas? Done something cool?
