1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button, button, who's got the button? on: March 26, 2009 03:45:32 PM
I've been busy with my new button maker. Yay!  I've also been making buttons to give to people who 'donate' some $$ into my tip jar when I'm doing street performing. Pretty cool, eh?

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Well, I ain't no artist, but.... on: August 08, 2008 10:28:45 AM
This is what has been consuming my time for the last week and a half. I don't know why I suddenly have the urge to draw, but I do, and since I can't draw more than doodles, I decided to doodle with a Sharpie pen and color it in with colored pencils afterward. There is a huge labyrinth, and several mini-labyrinths in there as well. Hope y'all enjoy!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / how is this cool hat made?? (pic heavy) on: February 04, 2007 11:39:53 PM
So I found this cool handmade hat at goodwill, but I don't recognize it as being either knitted or crocheted...so how is it made? It's reversible, and each side is differently colored:

Here are some pics of me flipping up the hat brim to show both sides together:

And here are some close-ups:

I know it's kind of old-school, but I really like how it feels and looks. It is definitely run-of-the-mill acrylic, but I'd like to make some in other colors and textures. The other thing that's cool is that the pom pom is on both sides. I think half of it shows through on either side. Also, the hat seems to be constructed as a tube that is cinched around the pompom on top. Is this made with one of those knifty knitters? Thanks for any help, fiber gurus!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / beadalon expandable beading loom on: December 10, 2006 06:46:27 PM
I got this beadalon expandable beading loom, and I was trying to figure out how to attach the warp threads to it. It doesn't have any screws or anything on the wooden rollers, but it does have holes. How in the world do I attach the warps to it? Thanks for any help. Here's a pic of the loom:
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / ball chain question on: October 19, 2006 11:04:09 PM
Is there a kind of bead that one could put on a ball chain that would act like a stopper? I have some handmade beads that I want to put on a ball chain (1/necklace), but I'd like to prevent the bead from moving on the chain. Is there such a thing? Maybe like something you would squeeze around the chain like a big crimp bead or something?
p.s. I hope this makes sense...
6  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / 2 questions: 1 about a kiln, 1 about a how-to on: October 16, 2006 10:41:50 AM
1) Anyone have the 411 on HG kilns (made by Sundance)? In particular, the HG6B6? Link: http://www.artglass1.com/hg6b6.htm

2) How would one make marbles that are flat on one side (like the kind people make "marble magnets" with? There are also used in aquariums or vases, I think. You might consider them to be a bead without a hole...

I am down with basic bead making, and I've seen some molds that look like half circles... If someone could point me to a tutorial or a website with the appropriate tool, that'd be AWESOME!

Are there any spinners out here in Eugene that want to get together sometime to spin. I've never spun with others, and it sounds fun.

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / yarn business on: June 18, 2005 09:32:46 AM
I think I would like to set up a website for a yarn spinning business.  Anyways, I'm terrible at naming things, my puppy was even nameless for the first 2 weeks! Anyways, here's what I have so far:

fleecy treats
fleece dreams
peace fleece
peaceful pastures
y.a.k. (yarns and knits)
sparkley yarns
soft meadows

If anyone can think of something that I use, I'll send you a skein of yarn (peach fuzz skein). SWEET!
If you can't think of anything, tell me which you like the best. Thanks SO MUCH!
