1  My First 2 finished objects very image heavy in Knitting: Completed Projects by cebsme on: March 02, 2006 02:35:50 PM
Ive been teaching myself to knit for about a week now, and wanted to just make a couple small things to start.

First is my is a wrist cuff-let. Due to some prior injuries i have wrist pain when every i do anything with a lot of repetative motion so i have to take breaks, this cuff-let holds my needles quite well..

Its knitted in a simple garter stitch on number 8s and i just dropped two sitches on both ends to hold the tails to tie it together loosely.

Next is a knitted keychain again a simple garter stitch on 8s with some dropped stitches and yarn over to break up the boringness. I k2tog a few times toward the end just to bring it to a point and knotted it on a large keyring.

2  Liquid Starch Paper Marbling in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cebsme on: February 02, 2006 08:04:22 AM
Ive been experimenting with marbling on paper using liquid starch as a size. This is right up my alley because the most expensive part was the paint and i got a big set for only $8.00 Everything else came from the dollar store except the cardstock i had on hand.  This is just a small sample since i find this relaxing in the past five days ive done over 100 sheets,even though it was just an experiment.  I plan on making a journal with some of it.

My little ham oreo had to sneak into some of the pictures.

3  Fancied up dollar store journals in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cebsme on: January 21, 2006 06:09:36 PM
Today was craft day with my neighbors granddaughter a tradition for us.

So we went an bought these cute little spiral journals from the dollar store, some scrapbooking paper, some stones we had for another project and fake flower, also glitter glue from other projects.

I think all together we probably spent $3.00 total on both...excluding mod podge and hot glue but for a quick craft they turned out fairly well,,and she was thrilled about it.

I have to say everyones work is beautiful. So today was my craft day with my neighbors granddaugter, picked her up went to the 99cents store and the dollar store, picked up lots of little crafts,,,,but then i told her we were going to cook cd's she looked at me like i was strange for a minute because i didnt tell her why, but hey, she was up for it just because she wanted to cook cd's we scrounged up 6 various cd's and got to cooking...we didnt use the microwave just the oven. we havent made anything yet they are still in cd form, hubbys going to cut them with a hot knife for us.. And hes also giving us 50 cds to use for this that were cheap. and since they curled up next time im going to make them flat by putting a dish and sheet of tin foil over it....these turned out pretty neat i think. Thanks so much for posting about this it really was fun just to see what would happen.

5  Square Cracker Tins in What the heck can I do with THIS? by cebsme on: January 19, 2006 12:09:40 PM
I have 5 of these cracker tins from Sky flakes they are square with circular openings and the lids come completely out and i dont have the lids anymore. They look very retro in there shape to me and i wanted to make some kind of organizer for the garage where my crafts are, i just have a block as to how to do it.

Heres a couple pictures....
