1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Neckalce made with hand-made chain and chandelier earrings to match! [img heavy] on: January 21, 2009 07:44:24 AM
Hello crafters! I havn't posted a project in a while, and I'm quite proud of the necklace I made, so I figured I'd share.  I made the chain with copper and silver wire.  My fingers KILLED after a few hours of shaping the metal.  This was for the small destash swap, but my partner has already received and I'd really like some comments and criticism.  I had fun taking pictures of it with my new macro lens. =D

The necklace:

The earrings:

Some shots of the whole set:

And a detail of the necklace:

I just really love how the colors work together.  Let me know what you think!  Thanks!

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Stationary Set/ Paper Craft Swap? on: September 05, 2007 08:41:54 PM
So im thinking there could be a swap... everyone could make a set of 8 or 10 cards, grab/make some envelopes... maybe even decorate them to match, and send them to a partner to send to friends and family.  This could be a pretty laid back swap if you wanted it to be.  Id be open to organizing.  What do you guys think?
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / card mobile on: May 05, 2007 01:24:39 PM
So this is massively late but i was looking through pictures and found the card mobile i made my man for last Valentine's Day.  I didnt want to give him a regular card so i made him a mobile with a bunch of little ones with geeky/cute/lovey sayings.  I hung it in his locker with a little note explaining to be careful cuz the bolsa wood i made the frame with is very fragile.  Here it is...

some of the images are sort of terrible quality, sorry bout that. =p
Tell me what ya think.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / College Survival/ Think of Me package. on: April 25, 2007 03:14:44 PM
Hey all! It's been a while since i've visited craftster.  I miss it  Sad But yeah onto the issue at hand...

My boyfriend is going to college next fall while I, being a junior, am stranded in high school hell.  I want to make him a box with all stuff he can use and enjoy while hes at school, including snacks and little things that will make him think of me... don't want his mind trailing while hes surrounded by those college women. Wink  I've been thinking a book, a movie, some candy, a picture of us... but i'd like some additional, perhaps more creative ideas. Thanks to everyone in advance!

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Diabetes swap? on: November 04, 2006 06:57:00 PM
Heyyy guys.  I'm a type one diabetic and i don't if there are many other diabetics on the forums and i don't think I'd be willing to organize (but maybe).  But i figured a diabetic swap may be fun, play on all the stuff we have to deal with and the stuff that only us (and maybe an endocrinologist) would understand.  Anybody with me?

6  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / ANGEL FOUND for "___in a box swap" on: September 29, 2006 12:08:26 PM
Skier88888 is a participant in my swap, the "___ in a box swap" and not only has her partner flaked on her but her former angel decided to back out sooooo wee need a new angel.
gallery for the swap is here to get an idea of what it was all about...
here's the swap thread to explain anything
and skier88888's box swap interests are as follows...
What themes would you like your box to be based on (please include at least 3)?
-concert in a box (i like the summer obsession, gavin degraw, the click five, the veronicas, big city rock, october fall, ashley parker angel, teddy geiger, ryan cabrera, weezer ..)
-skiing in a box (downhill snow skiing =])
-music in a box (i play piano .. i like guitars .. drums .. whatever)

I would truely appreciate an angel who is willing to do this and preferably do it quickly.  Not to be pushy but send-out was july 20th adn seeing as its nearing october... skier88888 is anxious for her package and im anxious for her to receive something to. 

THanks in advance for anyone interested, i appreciate it a bunch.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Face painting on: September 17, 2006 04:47:32 PM
ok... so i saw a topic around the thread that was something like this but i searched and i couldn't find it anywhere so... here goes

Saturday, the 30th, is my niece's 1st birthday party.  There will be tons of little kids there and i've been apponted to paint faces.  Im an artist and all but ive havnt painted faces in forever so im not familiar with it and i was wondering if anybody here has had experience, can suggest what types of paint to use, what to use to apply the paint, and what to expect for requests and whatnot.  I've decided ill do full face butterflies if they are requested.  Flowers, fish, animals, birds, cat whiskers on the nose and stuff like that.  Maybe sharks and bugs and stuff for boys.  Anyone have any other ideas??

thanks in advance.
