1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit DNA! on: November 07, 2007 12:20:12 PM
So my friends and I did a swap and the person I had is a science-y gal. After much searching typing in terms such as "bacteria," "science," "germs" i found a pattern for a knit DNA double helix!!

It was so fast to make. I was trying to make it scientifically accurate with the colors in the "bars" but I didn't quite do it right so I've dubbed this mutant DNA. My friend loved it!

Pattern is from here:

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Printing with Scrapblog? on: September 05, 2007 02:53:01 PM
I know you Craftsters out there can help me!

I am making a photobook and decided to use Scrapblog to do the pages. My plan was to export them as jpgs then upload them to Snapfish and stick them in a book. It worked only Snapfish is saying my resolution is too low and not recommended for printing! I am looking to do 8.5" x 11" page. So I want to know, does anyone know how to export at a higher resolution?? Or maybe there is another photobook company where this is not a problem?

Alternatively, if I can't get that to work, does anyone know a free program similar to Scrapblog? The simple templates that Snapfish provides don't do it for me but I'm not about to do a layout from scratch in Photoshop.

Thanks in advance!!
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / photobooks as scrapbooks? on: May 08, 2007 07:16:02 AM
I've seen a lot of posts on digital scrapbooking and using photoshop, etc. But I am wondering if anyone has tried any of the photo sites that you can create photobooks with like shutterfly, snapfish, kodak, etc.

I just made a photobook with snapfish but it is pretty basic, just pictures. I've seen some other sites have templates, etc that give it more of a scrapbook feel. Does anyone have a favorite or seen one they'd really like to try?

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Mother's Day / I am ready for Mother's Day! on: May 07, 2007 08:28:05 AM
It is always hard to find something for my mom! She doesn't really have a lot of hobbies, doesn't need any clothes, I gave flowers one year and that was a disaster (snail incident) and she's across the country so I can't take her out for lunch. I knit but she's not one for shawls and it's too warm in CA for hats, gloves etc. I think everyone on here thinks their mom is difficult. Somehow I always manage to find something... plus this year we are going on vacation so I will actually be with her for Mother's Day... I can't show up empty handed! So here we go...

1. First off, my family takes lots of vacas and I have all the pictures which I hold hostage basically until the next trip. I decided this year to make a photobook of all the pictures from last year's trip! I don't have a pic of this because I did it online but I recommend this for all mom's!

2. Every since the live flower/snail incident, I've stuck with the fake flowers (they last longer  Wink). This year I did some felted ones.

It is a pattern from PickUpSticks that i got at a LYS.

3. My mom is completely infatuated with Josh Groban ever since seeing him in concert. She has all the CDs/DVDs so I thought she'd get a kick out of this t-shirt I stenciled!

T-shirt on the left, stencil on the right. I doubt she'll wear it to the mall but maybe as a bed shirt. (ps thanks to all the craftster tutes on stenciling!)

Ok so that's it... more info on the blogs below. I hope this inspires someone to make something for their mom!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hats! Hats! on: January 17, 2007 01:02:01 PM
It's been awhile since I've posted anything but here are two hats I made.

The first is Odessa which is a very belated xmas gift for my cousin.

This one is the Black Sea Hat (also by Grumperina) for my other cousin... also a very late gift... oops!

Hope you like!
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Stripes the Sock Monkey on: August 14, 2006 07:15:35 AM
Once upon a time there was a pair of striped socks lovingly picked out of the bin at Filene's Basement. The next day, they turned in to a sock monkey!

This is the first sock monkey I've ever made and I love him! His name is Stripes and I made him for my sis but loved him so much, he became mine. I may have to make him a brother with another pair of striped socks in a different shade.

Stripes likes to look cute and relax all day. I plan on making him a banana so he'll never be hungry!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / HOT chili pepper apron! on: August 14, 2006 07:09:55 AM
I decided to make my bf an apron for his birthday. We went to Joann's and he picked out the fabric - hot chili peppers dressed up as outlaws and bar maidens.  Wink This was really only my 4th sewing project and I'm so proud of myself! It even has two pockets on the front. I used a Simplicity pattern.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Kitty Klubhouse! (pic inside) on: July 05, 2006 10:47:45 AM
My bf had two end tables that he wasn't using anymore which we had stacked in the hallway. The kitties sure like to lounge in them so we though we'd spruce them up and make a Kitty Klubhouse (yes I came up with the name).

Some wood, rope, and fabric later (and with the help of a handy dandy staple gun), we had this!

Isn't it great? The kitties still aren't 100% sure about it but we did find one of the kitties in the middle level the other day.

For more pics and details on how we made it, check out my blog!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jaywalkers! (with pics!) on: June 13, 2006 08:01:58 AM
I finished these Jaywalkers about two months ago but finally decided to post some pictures! They were for a sockapalooza so sadly, I had to send them away. They are the Jaywalker pattern and are done in Bernat Sox in the Jazz Hot colorway. They are fraternal twins because I didn't realize the yarns were different dye lots (oops!). I loved them all the same. Aren't they lovely??

Modeled by the floor:

Modeled by me (luckily my pal and I had the same size feet!):
10  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Exchange Bag DONE! on: June 13, 2006 07:54:44 AM
Here it is! My first project from this book. I had some issues in the beginning and that "join and turn" was really annoying me but it all worked out in the end. I used about 1.5 rolls of J&P Coats Crochet Nylon in beige. I love it! It's so shiny and it's the perfect size!
