Here we go! First off, I got a lamp. Pinky K made me a lamp! Look!

The lampshade looks like it's made of glass. It looks awesome in the dark. I love it.

Next, I got a fruit bowl. Pam needs to explain herself on this one! How on earth did you make plastic look so beautiful? How did you make this bowl? I filled it full of oranges as it came all the way from Florida:

I also got some cool jewelry. I love skulls and got this very cool bracelet and two pendants. My guess with the skulls is that they are made from Fimo. But again, Pam, please explain!

I love my stuff, Pam. It all turned out really, really well. I sure hope you tell us how you made these items. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I also blogged about it on my website here - http://carolbrowne.com/index.php?itemid=1724

2  Re: iPod Cozies in Knitting: Completed Projects by carolb on: July 09, 2007 06:44:29 AM

I used a free pattern from the Lions Brand website and just made it smaller for my little MP3 player. I knitted it flat, folded it in half and crocheted 2 sides closed. I'm a slow knitter - it took me about 7 hours to knit this from sock yarn on 3.25 needles. I only had to make a rectangle that was 10 inches by 8 inches (my mp3 player is little). Good thing that's all I needed or I would have taken a week to finish it.

For the laniard, I used the bookmark pattern from the Crochet Me website: (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_book_thong.html) and I kept the hardware from the original laniard (just a plastic piece of string) and replaced the plastic string with my fancy crocheted yarn.

Got my third Valentine ATC today. I love it. I just have to point out the two hearts on the actual card are metal, but it scanned in like it was black.
Also, I scanned in the stamps because they are so great! We didn't have any Valentine stamps in Canada this year. I checked.
Thanks, Gothchics! I love the card and the stamps.

BloodyDeaf sent me these beautiful cards:

I especially love the "new day" card with the french newspaper collage at the bottom. They are all lovely, though.

Thanks Claudia!

7  My clown peeg! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by carolb on: December 31, 2006 02:26:30 PM

I'm very interested in the Chinese Zodiac and since the upcoming year is The Year of The Pig, I wanted to incorporate a pig into my project. I found an easy origami pattern for a rabbit, made it in pink paper and changed the folds of the ears so it looked more pig-like. I just drew the pig tail in after. I used origami paper for everything - and a I used the back of an old Christmas card for the base and just glued the yellow/green paper on top.

This is my first try at an ATC and found that 2.5 X 3.5 inches is a good size to try little projects on. It was a fun project!

Here's me in my hoodie:

The dangers of stale coffee comic:

The manboob collage:

And the handmade coffee soap! Yay!

There's a few more photos of the collaged container in my gallery here:

Thank you for your patience with me with this photo thing. This has been a great swap for me. Thank you!

I blogged about my crafts to Malina here - http://www.carolbrowne.com/index.php?itemid=1080

Here's a photo I took and then had blown up to an 8X10 size:

Here are the handmade items I made ~ the photo is covered in an envelope, but you can see the crocheted espresso cup and the lined bamboo purse. My first lined purse! I like how it turned out.

And here's a close up of the purse. I found some cute fabric with tiny coffees on it and it had names of drinks on it, like latte, mocha, stuff like that:

I filled up the purse with coffee flavoured candies, mocha coloured socks, more candies, and some Canadian coffee beans. Malina, I'm so glad you liked your stuff! It was great putting it together. And thanks for being my lined purse guinea pig!

Trashed Clothings swap to me con't...

This is all the crafty stuff she sent and she seven sent me candy corn! YES!

She made me a tote bag with Michael Meyers on it. It's awesome and I'm using it as a purse. She did a great job.

She made me this skull necklace which I'm wearing right now:

Stefanie is a great craft swapper. Thank you so much! I love all of it. And my Day of the Dead diorama will be up all year long. I love them that much.

Also, there was another Day of the Dead man that was injured during transport. I'm going to reattach his limbs and then take a photo.
