1  Just a Simple Starfish in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spaz_muse on: May 26, 2005 05:33:29 AM
I made this for my secret pal in the first secret pal swap.  Since she already knows who I am and has already received it, I figured it would be ok to post a pic of it!

It's made of camel-colored felt with darker brown free-hand embroidery.  Thanks for looking!

Another tote I embroidered, this one for my Secret Pal in the first Secret Pal swap.  I figured since she knows who I am and has already received it, it would be ok for me to post it!

One side (the pearl is done in Silver Metallic floss):

There are a couple of other pictures in my craftster gallery that are without flash but show the color a bit better.  Thanks for looking!

3  Dyabolica Saves Mother's Day (embroidered tote) in Needlework: Completed Projects by spaz_muse on: May 26, 2005 05:21:11 AM
You can start ruing today because I have a working digital camera now, so time to inflict pictures of my craftiness on you all!

I embroidered this tote for my grandmother for Mother's Day.  I found the patterns in a post by Dyabolica!  Thanks, Dyabolica!!!!

A picture without the flash that shows the color a bit better:

Close-up on the guy's face:

Close-up on the girl's face:

The swirls in metallic floss were a pain till I accepted that I shouldn't try going in and out of the same hole multiple times.  There are more pictures (all close-ups) in my craftster gallery if you're interested.  Thanks for looking!

And here is a close-up of the super amazing lariat!

Thank you again so much, Secret Craftster!!!!  You're amazing!!!  Seriously, is there nothing you can't do?!!!

5  Re: Easy Coptic Bound Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by spaz_muse on: December 16, 2004 06:49:11 AM
Well, Ican't get the website to pull up right now, but I think I have an idea of what you're talking about!!!!

Here is a journal I made:

I made it a while back for the circle journal swap I'm hosting here on Craftster.  I painted the cover paper myself (white 80lb. artist paper painted streaky black on purpose with a maple leaf stamp in copper ink).  Anyway, I didn't take pictures of the endpapers, but it's the same as the cover paper.

6  Tiger's Eye Jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spaz_muse on: December 15, 2004 09:55:01 AM
These are some pieces I made a while back, but now that my camera is finally playing nice with my computer, I can post them,

This is tiger's eye and silver lined rondelle beads on flexible metal wire.

This necklace is made out of tiger's eye as well with copper spacer beads.

A close up on the pendant area.  You can sort of see the copper spacers.  

Thanks for looking!

7  Forays With Felt in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by spaz_muse on: December 15, 2004 09:50:32 AM
I love tiny things and thought it would be so fun to start sewing some tiny stuff!  Welcome to my first attempts!

This is Bucky the Acorn with his allowance as a point of reference for his size.  He's sarcastic, drinks coffee, and wants to conquer the world!

And this is Chelsea the pumpkin.  She is shy, loves Amelie, and wants to be a Las Vegas showgirl.

She's never too shy to show off her sequins!  

She's also shown with her allowance for size reference.

Hope you liked seeing them!  I hope to make some more for the holidays!  I better get crackin' though. The holidays are almost up!

8  Yay for Embroidery! in Needlework: Completed Projects by spaz_muse on: December 15, 2004 09:37:56 AM
Woohoo!  I have become an embroidery fool!  The first thing I tried to embroider ever was a pillow. I started it three years ago and have yet to even come close to finishing it.  It made me very cranky and I decided I was destined to hate embroidery forever.  I was a bit nervous about this part when I signed up for the three month long craft along unswap ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17537.0 ), but now:

This is one of two handkerchiefs I embroidered for a lady I work with who actually still uses handkerchiefs!  That's one of my favorite things about her!  Anyway, it's based on a design by Charles Rennie Macintosh.  I didn't have a small embroidery hoop (just a large one from the aforementioned cursed pillow project) and thought I could press out the funny lumpyness.  I couldn't.    Learning that, I was much more careful with the next one:

This is an angel I found in a Dover book of Art Nouveau designs.  She really likes angels and I really liked the deisgn.  Works well. 

This is a mermaid on what was supposed to be a drawstring pouch.  Sorry about the darkness, but that was the only way I could get an accurate picture of the colors.  Also, her face is a bit prettier in person.  Really.

But I was really proud of the tail, so here's a close up of it (see what I mean about the stupid flash washing out the color?  Don't get me wrong - flash is great, but sometimes....)

I also embroidered some napkins as a host gift for a party I went to this weekend.  They had snowmen on them.  I do have pictures, but not here with me.  Will have to upload them later.  Wow I love my camera now that it's playing nice with my computer again!!!!

9  Re: pringles can filler-er-up challenge pics! in The Swap Gallery by spaz_muse on: December 07, 2004 08:28:19 PM
Woohoo!!!! Pictures as promised!!!!  Along with a more detailed listing of all cairnlae's hard work!!!!

This is whole kit and kaboodle!!!!  I'm telling you, that can was STUFFED!!!!  To protect the can for mailing, she wrapped it in brown paper and wrote "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. - Picasso"  I hadn't heard that one before, but I really like it!!!!

A close up of the can!  See what I mean about the ribbon?  If I didn't suck at collage, I'd make a can that looks like this!!!!  

The circle/frilly object leanuing against the bread is a fabulous pin!!!!  The piece of cloth right in front of that is what the magnets came wrapped in!  Speaking of magnets, in this picture, you can see the glittery fun moon magnet, the Frido Kahlo magnet, Victoria Regina magnet, Fun Lady in Sunglasses magnet, and the Hi! magnet!  Frido and the Sunglasses lady are both bottle tops, the moon is a baby food jar lid(?), and the remaing ones are marble magnets!!!!  They all make me smile!!!!

Now you can see the two awesome necklaces she sent me!!!!  One is this amazing cylinder of beads and the other is a delightful string of flowers made from beads!  And how perfect is that?  I had one like this (but white in between each flower) that I loved, but some guy I work with was stupid and accidentally broke it.  Beads scattered and I couldn't find them all and couldn't really get the knack of putting it back together.  But now I have this one that I love!!!!  I simply won't wear it to work.  You can also see the very awesome earrings she sent to me!  I always see these beads in the shops, but I don't know what to do with them.  Now I know!!!!  

Here you get another view of the cylinder of beads necklace I was talking about, a brighter picture of one of the earrings, and two cuffs made from ties!  I love them both!  Fabulous colors, fabulous idea, and fabulous button on the one in the front!!!!  You can also see the two rubbery frogs, Ned and Fred (what?  They needed names!)

Now how cool is that?  That is a pin made from a can!  Go recycling!  I'll never know how you got the ends smooth enough that even clumsy me hasn't managed to cut myself with it, but I am so grateful!!!!  

My chocolate frog and his two rubbery friends!!  As you can see, The chocolate frog also had garnet and gold ribbon!  I feel all Harry Pottery now!!!!  I think I'm going to try putting one of the frogs in some soap I'm making this weekend!  I've always wanted to try that and now I have a way!!!!

Thanks again Cairnlae!!!!  This rocks my socks!!!!  I love it all and I'm so grateful to you for all your hard work!!!!

10  My first drawing in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by spaz_muse on: July 23, 2004 11:28:27 AM
I drew this one a couple of years ago and finally got it framed.  It was my first attempt at anything other than doodles or geometric designs.
