Wow!  Fantastic stuff!  Smiley

I received amazing handfelted items from Nodsu today!  Smiley  And she made something especially for me!

All the yummy goodies!  felted donuts and other sweets and a mandrake!!!!  Sorry about the photo quality.  They are wrapped so wonderfully that I don't want to take them out to photograph them.  Hopefully Nodsu can post better closeups.




The tags are great too! And a wonderfully punny reminder that we all need to hear- DONUT EVER GIVE UP!


My lil' mandrake and a lovely note:



Lana squeed when she saw the lil' mandrake.  We love him!  Smiley 

Thank you so much Nodsu for an amazing swap!  I'm gonna have so much fun abandoning these sweets!  Smiley

3  Coral Pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by underthemountain on: September 04, 2017 07:24:09 PM
Just got back from a wonderful visit back home.  While Lana spent lots of time on the beach body surfing and swimming, John and I roamed about picking up shells, coral, and beach plastic.  I decided to use some of what I collected there to make a few items for the Abandoned Art Swap https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452836.0 as well as for the upcoming Shop the Swap.  Tongue

I made the necklace using nylon cord and a puka shelll (puka means hole in Hawaiian).  I used the same technique here that is to make ti leaf leis.  John helped me not only by drilling the coral, but he also taught me me how to make a whip finish.  Smiley

the batch


a closeup of one of them


I had lots of fun making these.  I have some more projects planned to use the beach plastic as well as some koa sheets that I got for free on my last visit home.

Aloha!

4  honu bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by underthemountain on: July 29, 2017 06:02:07 AM
Hi all!

Our honu bracelets were inspired by a combination of Lana's random acts of kindness projects which including a stamped penny drop in the summer, our love of Hawai'i, and the Abandoned Art Swap 2 (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452836). 

The honu or sea turtle are one of many amakua or deified ancestral spirits and as such hold a very special place in the hearts of the Hawaiian people.  We are hoping that they remind the lucky recipients that we need to take care of our planet and be respectful of all living creatures.   




Lana and I had fun crafting them.  We can't wait to start sharing them while on vacation in Hawaii and in the DC metro reason this summer.

Hoping to visit the real honu while back home.  2 summers ago Lana went swimming with them on the Big Island.  Smiley

Congrats Ranty!  She is lovely!

Sharing some buttons that Lana has been making for NLM, NHGRI, and for our Kumu.  Lana was able to donate $130 to DM from these.




We also baked up a storm for Lana's teachers (10 banana breads -me and chocolate thumbprint cookies -Lana), but alas no pics.

Finally a few new things to share!
These are moon pendants made from vintage watch faces and highly detailed metal stamped moon faces.  Each is backed with a metal disk which gives it a nice weight.  I made these for my craft fair on Sunday, but wanted to offer them to you guys too.  I love them, hope you do too.


see more in my shop

I need to earn 2 points.  Smiley
Thanks!

Amazing goodies!!!

Hold one to your hats though it's my time to share...

So I got this wonderful box of goodies from LeapFeetFirst.  It was wrapped in pretty paper that Melanie printed for me (sorry can't show them because I used it to wrap up a little present for Averia's daughter.  Smiley 

When I unwrapped it guess what I found?
A lovely, beautiful, amazing snake greeted us!  He's the perfect replica of Lana's snake Mo'o...her corn snake.  Smiley 


Now Lana can take big Mo'o everywhere!


But wait there's more....
Wonderful handspun yarn!  Those of you who know LFF, know that her handspun is legendary!  This is so lovely!!!  And yes, these are the leftovers.  She spun this up to make Mo'o!!!!


And if that weren't enough LFF made us some lovely cards with her new gelli pad!


Thank you Melanie for all the wonderful goodies.  You really spoiled us!  Smiley

Hi all!

This Friday we had our STEAM/DM Auction.  All the handmade goodies were loved as usual! 

The knit/crocheted items were a big hit this time around.  The sewn stuff not so much.  I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to it all. The handmade cards were a big hit too.  The jewelry which usually does really well didn't this time around.  Oh well.  The great thing about all these goodies is that I can store them for the next event!  Smiley 

But here is the exciting news....we made over 5K!  Smiley  It couldn't have come at a better time since we are gearing up for the food distribution!!!  And I fear that our van (old) is on its last legs.  It is over 16 years old and from the rewiring Bryan discovered he thinks that it was used to power and haul a trailer.  Today it wouldn't start and he ended up having to rent a vehicle to take them to their convention site visit.  This isn't the first time that this has happened. I am hoping that he'll consider getting another van soon.   

Here is Lana getting set up to make buttons.  I didn't get a good action shot, but you can see Always' machine and some of her preprinted button offerings.  They do well, but the kids really enjoy creating their own images.


We are now gearing up for Global Youth Service Day on April 22.  I'll share Lana's button design for that once it comes together.  Smiley

Thanks again to all of you for helping us!  You all have truly made a difference.
