11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Lil Sis Box on: October 30, 2006 02:59:29 PM
My niece is initiating her Lil' Sis this Friday and couldn't find a traditional pin box that she liked, so she called me and I came up with this...

I used a basic pottery slab construction and TLS tinted with Pearl Ex powders for the stripes. Inside is a little brown felt pincushion for the pin to rest on. For last minute I think it came out really cute!

Thanks for looking Cheesy!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Sweetie...who is "S" and why did you give me her tote??? on: January 26, 2006 10:08:14 PM
My hubby bought me one of those oh-so-popular monogram totes. He bought it because it was my favorite color combo and bless his heart, he didnt turn it around and see that it had the initial "S" on it. Now, seeing as my name is Misty.it is a bit odd. Specially since I use it to carry my portable projects around in, someone is always asking me what the S is for. Been saying "Stichery" but I want to change it somehow. Its a lovely super soft leather with another layer of lighter leather under it. I was thinking of an appliqu or patch of some sort, but Im not sure if it will ruin/stretch this soft leather. The monogram is about 3 inches / 75 cm high and nearly 2 inches/ 45 cm across. Does anyone have any experience with a leather of this type? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Once I get moved and find that dang digi-cam (why in the world did he pack THAT of all things and left all my cookbooks outmen.at least mine ..always thinking with his stomach) I can perhaps post a pic so you can see what Im talking bout LOL.

Thanks my wonderful, beloved Craftsters for letting me pick your brains!!!
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Let's play "Name that Tool!" on: January 22, 2006 06:51:55 AM
While browsing at our local (craptastic) thrift store, I found a bag of cable needles. Woot! Yay for me! Grabbed em, threw em on the counter and shelled out my buck fifty before the hubby could even say "HEY!" So I was pretty happy. Got home, sat em down, and since I have been busy crocheting and sewing, hadn't touched the new knitting yummies.  So anyway, (short story made much longer cuz I like to jabber) our move got moved up to the 27th (Woohoo happy dream house Barbie time!) (OMG is that THIS Friday! *full body spasm*) and as I reluctantly start to pack my craft stuff (now I know I will need that particular shade of blue binding tape the ABSOLUTE SECOND we move so put it on top of the suitcase with my toothbrush in it) I found this smooshed in with the other stuff.

Now.does anyone know what the heck it is or what its for??

(Ignore the fatheaded cat, he only THINKS I was taking a pic of him)
14  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / First wool + ivory+ hot water=tears of joy on: January 05, 2006 01:17:23 PM
Cheesy Seriously new to felting!! (Got the first 100% wool I have ever owned that wasn't already a sweater in the mail 2 hours ago)! Was originally planning to try spinning it. . . annoying husband "borrowed" the dowel rod I had purchased to make a CD drop spindle. But I wanted to try a little felting anyway, so that was a fine excuse. Put down the precious ballquickly read the "felt a bead" tute (eternal gratitude to Lise), grabbed a chunk, ran to the sink and viola!


I must be PMSing or finally pregnant, because I immediately burst into tears! What joy is there in life for those strange non-crafty people?Huh Took me at least 15 minutes to calm down long enough to get a pic!

I am so dang glad I have you all to share with!! Whew.I've gotta sit a minute. Cheesy

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first design on: October 30, 2005 06:33:08 PM
I saw this basketweave potholder and decided it would make a nice scarf. I have never ever made anything (knit or crochet-wise) without keeping my eyes glued firmly on the pattern. Now, granted, this is really simple, I am still pretty proud of myself for taking the chance. It was only supposed to be six feet long, but I met my husband's great aunt Friday and I knit throughout (this being really simple and having a beaded stitch marker in the break, so I really couldn't screw it up) and it turned out just a couple of inches over 7 feet  Shocked ! As it turned out, IMHO, really nice and soft (don't know what kind of yarn, was a gift, and just lovely, I decided to send it along to my best friend who's b-day is in a couple of weeks. Considering how I am known for being a procrastinator this will just knock her socks off LOL. Since my b-day is 10 days after her, I'm betting I get a wicked nice return gift (although she give great gifts)! Plus I have enough yarn to make one for me as well! So it's a win/win! When i put the pom-poms on it I thought it looked jester-y so I have been calling it my jester scarf lol.


What do you think sirs?
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Inkjet + decoupage = any probs? on: October 15, 2005 03:20:44 PM
We are about to start decoupaging our ceiling in our rat maze like hall with some inkjet prints of some beautiful vintage tin tiles we found on the net, because we are poor and can't afford them but have unlimited supplies of paper and inkjet (my dad's business has an account on Quill and I get free run woo-woo). Has anyone ever had problems with inkjet print smearing or puckering or anything? Wanna know now before i have a huge stack of em printed lol
