5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / tribal belly dance belt on: March 15, 2010 11:47:20 PM
i love love love yarn. and i recently got into belly dancing.
i got some awesome peacock green yarn with a black thread accent, and i sat down to make a scarf.
two rows in, i realized that the yarn matched my new wrap top, and i decided to make a tribal-ish belt.

so far it is a silent belt, but i have some tiny brass bells i want to add for jingle factor.

before i added tassels

with tassels!

i actually took like 10 more photos and i'm in love with all of them, but i shall end here because you don't need to see half a billion more pics of my bed wearing the belt.

i was going to wear it tonight, but class got cancelled, so i'll see how it looks with shimmies and some hip work tommorrow.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / mini themed tree on: November 30, 2009 04:46:41 PM
i decided that it would be cool to have a mini tree with a theme, and that i would change the theme every year

so this year i decided that i would have a nightmare before christmas mini tree
my plan was to get it up for halloween, but i couldn't find a mini tree until mid novemeber.

i bought two packages of plain ball ornaments and painted them in plain black, black and white spirals or Jack the pumpkin kings face. i got black tinsel strand before halloween and then i paired it with white tinsel strand.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / jewellery scrapbook on: November 19, 2009 01:48:37 PM
i have been asked to do a beading workshop at the local MFRC. i'm totally stoked, and they asked if i could bring in some of the stuff i make to put in a display. so i whipped up two tiny display boards to show off two variations of the pendent i'll be teaching people how to make, but i couldn't figure out what else to take in. i had so many shiny awesome things.

then i got this chipboard book at the dollar store, its 10 x 10 inches, and has 20 pages. i thought i could turn into into a scrapbook for some memorial pictures i took. but inspiration struck and i realised i could fill it with pictures of the jewellery i make, and then i could display 40 to 50 peices in the amount of space two would take. i may have actually gone "OH YEAH AWESOME!!" as i had this realization.

the cover. so simple. plus i literally got all the papers, tools and embelleshments for the whole book at the dollarstore.

page one.

these are my favorite pages, hands down. black and white and grey on the left, and black and white and goldy/brown on the right. its really simple, but it just filled me with glee

the way i put the images in fills me with glee. the top pictures both have pendents that point inwards, and the bottom pictures both have pendents that point outward. and i actually didn't notice it until afterwards, when i was showing my husband the finished product.

the whole thing is really simple, i just used the blank pages that the book came with and kept the pages minimal so that the images which tend to be busy and full of color could really draw the eyes. it was a fantastically cheap scrapping product to do as i literally got all the papers, tools and embelleshments for the whole book at the dollarstore. i printed the photos with my photo printer thingy which is supposed to be cheap but it goes through a full ink cartrage when it prints 45 photos though, so... instead of the .10 cents a picture it advertised as, it runs me 80 cents per photo once i figure in the photo paper. (i can buy cheaper photo paper, but its not as good quality, and sometimes the ink bleeds through)

i got half a billion compliments on the book and the jewelery when i dropped it all off. so i'm pretty pleased with it!

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday - November 6, 2009 on: November 06, 2009 10:33:40 PM
little? deer are little in places? ours are big. big and awesome. (unless they are lurking in the middle of the road, in which case they are big and inconvenient)

i found the deer fluff at a park downtown that has a residential herd last spring. The deer were shedding their winter coats and the stuff was everywhere. i confirmed with the park staff that 'yep that's deer shed.' they think its a giant pain in the ass for the month or so it takes for all the deer to shed, the birds carry most of it away, but only a little bit at a time.

i did a post about it on the discussion forum. but this is pretty much everything i posted over there.
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday - November 6, 2009 on: November 06, 2009 05:41:56 PM

half deer fluff and half wool,  i dyed the wool fiber with kool-aid, the deer fluff is undyed. i'm calling it animal skies

on a candle so that its less bundled and easier to see

100% deer fluff!

fawn creamsicle, deer and wool, the wool is dyed with orange koolaid.

this is my most exciting thing of the week though

  my brand new antique spinning wheel!  its in working condition, just needs to be tightened in one spot, and of course i need to learn how to use it. but YAY!!
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: am i crazy? adventures in alternate fiber on: November 05, 2009 09:42:04 PM
i have done some spinning with my deer fiber! i havn't got pictures, but i spun it up with wool, switching back and forth between the two fibers.

i spun some up by itself, and i have to wrap it into a ball still, but it held together pretty well. the fibers were about  an inch and half long.  next i want to card it with wool and then spin up the mix

in the time since i posted my original, we moved across the base, and now we have wild bunnies in the yard, and they leave fluff everywhere. i've got half a ziplock full, and when i have a full ziplock i'll be carding it with wool and spinning it.
