1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Neckwarmers (lots o pics) on: November 28, 2009 08:13:41 AM
i've been cooped up in the house the last couple of weeks, pregnant with the cold of Iceland outside. So I decided to start crocheting. Peaceful and soothing, I have been having soooo much fun. I have been making neckwarmers because they are always handy and I can even give them out as gifts if I like. Check them out. They aren't anything truly amazing, but I am proud regardless!

2  COOKING / Dessert / My very first Cinnamon rolls from scratch! on: June 01, 2009 10:22:40 AM
Last night I had the urge to make something that I thought would be a little more difficult than what I normally make. So I looked up some recipes online for cinnamon rolls, thinking that they always looked pretty difficult to make. But they aren't at all! It was so much fun!

So here are my first ones ever, I made the entire thing, including the dough. and added chocolate chips!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fancier necklaces? on: March 08, 2007 04:08:35 PM
I normally make necklaces using shrinky dinks, but I tried to make some using different types of pendants. I've got two here to show you, I was trying for a more elegant/mature feel. do you think i accomplished that? haha. i'm lame.

thanks for looking Smiley
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how do you make foam beads sturdy? on: March 02, 2007 06:02:08 PM
ok so i found super cute foam dinosaur beads on ebay. but i want to know if there is anything you can coat them with that will look good/shiny and will make them much more durable and sturdy?

i was thinking about coating them with a layer or resin. do you think this would work? maybe a couple layers or mod podge?

some form of spray? what do you think?
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how to make these type of pendants on: February 28, 2007 09:05:03 PM
I know there probably is some super easy way to make pendants like these. I know they're coated in resin or something, but i see people with these perfectly shaped hearts every time, and the textured (or lifted?) images on them, and I just feel stupid because I can't figure it out! can someone  clue me in?
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Recent makings! on: February 27, 2007 11:13:15 PM
I figure I can start to collaborate all of the new things I make into this thread, instead of making tons of new ones in the future

here are some things i've made in the last couple of days:


this was actually a request from a friend, because she found the same type of necklace at this link for $74!
http://www.metroparkusa.com/store/item_detail/women?item=106 so yeah.

thanks for looking!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / crowns and rainclouds! *edited* & cupcakes! on: February 23, 2007 09:01:57 PM
Hey I made two new pieces of jewelry today, and I love them, so I want to share.


both were made using shrinky dinks.

the necklace has faux pearls, hearts, those ab beads or whatever, and swarovski crystals hot fixed to them.

the rainclouds have shrinkydink raindrops too. i painted the back of the raincloud with a shimmery silvery/transparent paint stuff, but the picture makes it look dirty and drab haha.

but i like them both a lot. thanks for looking. sorry for the slogan, i use these pictures in other places too.

*edit* I'm adding two more pieces to this thread!


I made a yellow version of the pink one, minus the extra dangling chain, and i made cupcake earrings Cheesy

so i thought i'd share!

9  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Revamped rain cloud shoes! on: January 28, 2007 11:20:51 AM
Hey all, I had a birthday recently, and I decided to make everyone dress up silly. I decided that I would dress up as a rain cloud. Originally I had wanted to wear a pair of galloshes (i know i butchered the spelling) but I couldn't find any that were real cheap (until AFTER I had already made my shoes, of course) that I wanted to paint. So I took an old pair of ballet flats that I had used 3 years ago to wear as tinkerbell, and painted them to suit a rain cloud!

haha do pardon the unlovely quality of my pictures. I just took them on my imac.


ok so I created them by using paint markers/pens. I have all colors, and it makes it so much easier to apply them without making a mess. So I colored them rainbowesque all the way around, and drew on a cloud. I colored the clouds in white, and eventually decided to give them faces. I added SEVERAL coats of mod podge, in order to get a really nice glossy look. But I do suggest only  using 2-3 coats. I dont even know how many I used. I was mod podge happy. And they ended up cracking later. But between coats of mod podge, I put some MAC glitter (it's really pigmented glitter, and I never use the whole jar) all around, to get a rainbow glittery effect, and I like them a lot. The photos don't show how bright they are, or really too much of the glitter. But while they are still VERY wearable, I'm now paranoid they'll crack a little more. But I did only pay $5.00 for them at Old Navy. They were originally a metallic turquoise.
Thanks for looking!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Plexi Plastic Jewelry on: January 27, 2007 10:38:17 PM
Ok I don't really know why I am having such a hard time finding stuff about this type of jewelry, or rather, pendants? Below is just a random link/example I found on Ebay. Is this molded, then dremeled down? Or can you buy that "plexiplastic" stuff and apply an image, coat it with mod podge, and  then dremel it? I feel so silly.
