1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / need a gift idea for my dad on: December 10, 2011 12:23:39 PM
I need a gift idea for my dad for Christmas, he is in his 50's likes to work out, listen to music on his ipod, and i don't know what else.  i don't know what kinds of colors he likes.  he likes to read magazines.  my mom got him a nook color last year, but he hardly uses it.  he also likes sports, we live in Milwaukee, WI and so he is a huge packer, brewer, etc. fan.  he does not wear scarfs, and I already got him a hat before that he wears.  I'm not sure what type of style he has, but it is not a kitschy, crafty style.  I would like to make him something that he would like and actually use. I am low on funds this year and cannot afford to buy a gift so I have to make one. I can crochet, bead, do needlepoint, etc.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / my jewlery presents for my mom [Img heavy] on: January 15, 2009 02:12:47 PM
I made a bunch of earrings for my mother for Christmas.  I was going to post it for the contest, but I forgot.  I got a cookie tin and put them in it, I made one for each part of the tin.  Some I made from patterns and some I did freehand. unfortunately I didn't keep track of which were from patterns.
here they are all together:

here are all the earrings:

and i also made an earring holder from a frame I had laying around:

and here they are all together:

my mom was very impressed and thinks that I should start selling my jewelry.  what do you think? how do you like the earrings?  any constructive criticism would be apreciated

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / beaded voodoo doll for mother's day on: May 12, 2008 10:21:35 AM
this project has a long story behind it.  I found a gift book with a plain white and black voodoo doll last year that i thought would be perfect to bead on and give as a present to my mother, i didn't finish it last year, but when I was cleaning out the basement I rediscovered it and finished it in time for mothers day here it is:

and here's the final result:


and finally the side view

hope you like, my mom did.
