23  monster love mug in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by KidWithKemikals on: June 22, 2008 08:56:05 PM

after one night of not paying attention in news reporting I began doddling all over my notebook
to which I managed ti draw up these cute little monster lovers
I bought a set of four white mugs to paint for last Christmas and just never got around to it so I picked up a paint pen at Michaels this afternoon and got to it..
without further ado....

Id love to hear what you guys think!

I was dancing around in my room - like a complete retard.
I often get this crazy dancing fits.
If youve ever watched the opening minutes of Ghost World... thats me.
And I was listening to this awesome song called DotA by Basshunter [its a techno song based off of something from World of Warcraft or something related to it. http://youtube.com/watch?v=qXKd7uuehlw]

ANYWAY... Im dancing like an idiot and the doorbell rings..
now.. I KNOW that the mailman is coming around at this time of the morning and I KNOW that the only reason he would ring the bell is if he had a package SO I ran like the wind to the door! and sure enough I was right.

I could barely sign for the package I was so excited. I ran back into the house hopping and skipping like mad yelling "its here! its here! yahoo!" to no one in particular. I grabbed my x-acto knife parked myself on our living room floor and proceeded.

all my goodies splayed out in all their wrapped glory...

Kreestar made me a HUGE and AWESOME tote bag for the beach
and ohehmgee! its freaking BECK! Sweeeeeeet.

Sherlock Holmes Bear modified flashdrive.. oh my god how cute
his tag said "tear off his head to reveal a special surprise" and I was like "oh my God I dont want to pop his head off!"

Beatles tee with extra long sleeve that I love!!

knitted swimmers cap a la 1920.. what a doll I swear!

And finally me in all my cheesey glory!

I love love love it all!
thank so much Kreestar!
you were such an awesome partner!

27  first ever poly clay creations - roses and hibiscus? in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by KidWithKemikals on: May 22, 2008 06:40:06 PM

Inspired by the flower necklace in this post
I decided to try my hand at making flowers- that didnt turn out as I had planned
I had some clay lying around from another project that also turned out badly- I dont think clay is my forte

but I like these....

I made two different roses.. or maybe theyre gardenias
this one came out best although one of the petal broke off

this one has the center smushed in

Im not quite sure that to do with them
any ideas?

29  faux chinese paper lanterns in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by KidWithKemikals on: May 07, 2008 10:16:33 AM
so after seeing the lovely lanterns crafter for the dollar store challenge
artNcraft's original post with tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238457.0
I was inspired and made my own

sorry my bed is unmade
theyre made using coloured popsicle sticks
and white tissue paper
except the yellow one
since it was my first lanterns I used some old paper we had around
that my brother lovingly coloured with a purple marker  Undecided

the truth is mine didnt come out as good as the originals but theyre nice, right?

Im not all too good with curving eye hooks yet so theyre kind of crooked but you cant tell
and of course my mom loved it.... dont they always?

modeled by my mum
