1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / rose tree sculpture on: March 08, 2006 09:57:55 AM
I made this yesterday.  Didn't quite know what category it fit it, so misc it is!

I made the tree, nest, and eggs from white sculpy.  Unfortunately the branches drooped in the oven, so I had to break them off and reattach at different angles with wire and superglue.  I stuck my fingers together a lot!!  The flowers were some little silk flowers with wire stems that I wrapped around the branches and also glued.  The whole thing was painted with acrylics.  I really like it!  It's sitting out on the bookshelf in the living room now, and goes very nicely sitting next to a cross stitch of a peacock that I did  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74998).
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / peacock cross stitch on: January 19, 2006 05:16:58 PM
Finally, after years of on-and-off work (literally) I have finished my first full-sized cross stitch!  I embroidered the date as 2005 because I finished up everything except for a tiny part back in November.  I ran out of one color, and apparently the company that makes this cross stitch kit does not use DMC floss, so I was SOL for a little while.  It turns out their website will send you more if you run out though!  This is the "beautiful bird" from Dimensions.  I'm sure you've seen it at your local craft store.  Wink

Here is a closeup of it.  Click here to see the whole thing!:  http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/ehawxhurst/crafty/peacock.jpg
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Save-the-date magnets! with pictures on: December 10, 2005 10:59:11 PM
I designed some Save-the-Date magnets for my wedding in Photoshop using a picture I drew, and ordered them through vistaprint.com.  They were very reasonably priced and I think they turned out really cute! (no that's not a blob, I edited out the location Wink)



I spent a few hours this afternoon addressing and return addressing about 65 envelopes and then cutting out 65 little slips of paper with a little blurb about our wedding website on it, so now my hands are all crampy.   Tongue  I get to put them in the mail on Monday!!  This is getting exciting...
