1  A haunting time! in CHALLENGE 17 ENTRIES by KnitChick1979 on: February 28, 2007 07:00:34 PM
I've so been waiting for this challenge theme to come up!  Smiley  I love making clocks, and I love trying to break the rules with them.  I've made a shadowbox clock with race cars, a giant clock, even one in a book box.

This is one of my favorites though, and it still isn't quite finished (it needs a topcoat of mod podge sealer still)!

Here's the clock:

I've been watching Danny Phantom lately, and I'm a lifelong fan of Ghostbusters, so I thought why not combine them?

For the first time I've done something really different for the hands, that's part of why I love it!  Here's Slimer floating around as the hour hand:

Danny Phantom is the minute hand:  (I actually was planning on using a shot of him flying in his costume, it's in the corner, but this pose covered the shape of the minute hand better -- he's too skinny!)

And the second hand is a proton beam shot from one of the Ghostbusters' proton packs, I still may redo this if I can find a better image to work from.  Not easy to find a clear unobstructed proton beam screen cap!!!

Oh and since it's ghostly and because I love making stuff glow in the dark -- the green 'slime' background and the ghost in the GB logo are glow-in-the-dark!  I tried and utterly failed to get a piccy of how it looks in the dark.  Trust me that it looks totally awesome!

Sorry I'm so slow!  I'm a procrastinator, and plus I haven't felt so hot lately.  I've spent more time sleeping than crafting the last few weeks.

But finally, my goodies that I got!  Cheesy

First from my partner, DLSDesigns:  

A really neat pillow

A cool CSI NY switchplate made from a comic page (now I really have to straighten up so it will actually be visible on my wall!)

Framed CSI NY comic page with a really neat frame:

Other CSI stuff:

And then some cool yarn and crafting supplies she added (I love the color of the yarn, no clue what I'm going to make with it yet, though!)

And from my swap angel ..button-up.. :

Group shot

Neat books that are actually hiding places (I love these kind of books!)

Gun painting (it says "Calleigh Duquesne, Ballistics"!  Yay!)

Fingerprinting kit

Awesome calendar  (I love the quotes!  The one on that first page is actually one of my absolute favorites and I was so excited when I opened the box and saw it!)

And the piece de resistance, a Calleigh Duquesne doll!  She's so adorable!  I just love her dress.  Smiley

And here she is hanging out with my teddy bear

(yes, he is wearing a Bears sweater.  Meeting Calleigh was a little bit of a pick-me-up after that disappointing Super Bowl.  Oh well, NASCAR race season has begun!  Go Mikey!)

Thank you so much to both my partner and my angel and to our wonderful organizer!!  Sorry I'm such a slowpoke with posting pictures!

Hiya, the slowpoke here finally getting around to posting pictures!  Cheesy

I still haven't had a chance to take pictures of the duct tape wallet kit, since it came while I was hip-deep in Christmas crafting, but here's the lap quilt kit from SevsOnlyGirl!

The lovely fabric and the yarn for tying the layers together (wee, blue, I love it!)

This fabric is actually one I have been eyeing and trying to talk myself out of buying for a while now. Cheesy  So sparkly!

Lovely blue thread

Template for cutting my own squares (if I don't get too confused by this quilt that is Cheesy ) and a rotary cutter to cut with

Batting and needles

Now I just need to pry myself off the computer and get started sewing!  I've been writing fanfics so much lately I haven't gotten started on this yet Smiley

And I will get pictures of the duct tape wallet kit posted soon, I swear!  Smiley

Okay, my bad, I'm really slow when it comes to getting pictures posted.  But, finally, here's the awesome stuff I got from nifuu

The way cool tartan fabric I saw when I opened the box (which made me jump up and down, yes I am that easily excited by anything Scottish):

Group shots

Way cool yarn (including a skein of my beloved Opal sock yarn, I really have to finish the socks I've got on the needles so I can make my Zebra socks!)

Butterscotch goodness!

More food!

Earrings and hairclips (these didn't come out too well):

Again, thanks so much to my wonderful partner and sorry it took me forever to post!  Cheesy

Okay, I'm super slow Smiley but here's the package I sent my partner

Group shot:

A pair of latex gloves (a must have for any CSI!) and a little extra Christmas craft (it's a set of paper strips that you make a paper chain with):

CSI hat:

CSI t-shirt:

An apron (the gun and body chalk outlines are done freehand, I'm pretty proud of that because I cannot draw to save my life!):

Tote bag:

Soaps (I couldn't find molds that were really CSI-ish, and I don't know how to make my own yet, but I found some fossil ones):

And then the piece de resistance, the evidence!  Lifted from Dr. Syd Hammerbeck's lab, it's a severed nose in a jar.  Unfortunately the pictures did not come out too well but it's supposed to be a nose in a jar of formaldehyde (it's a fake nose in yellow glycerin soap).  I even made a neat-o evidence label filled out by Syd himself!

I was a little stuck for ideas but once I figured out what I was doing, I had fun with this swap!  Smiley

Wow everyone's trees are amazing!

BloodyDeaf, that is a really cool village, I wish I had the room to do something that cool!  Smiley

We have had two trees for years.  We had a big 6 ft Mountain King from when I was in Kindergarten but last year it was finally retired (after about 20 years) in favor of a slim tree from Hobby Lobby.  That one's downstairs.  The upstairs tree is a purple one, also from HL.

We haven't decorated the downstairs tree yet (without the ornaments it doesn't scream Christmas so it's a year-round decoration) or put up the purple tree yet but here's a snapshot of what the purple tree looked like last year.

(the first shot shows the real color better, the second is a lights-on attempt)

And here's the other tree from last year:

The only thing that stinks is this tree is WAY smaller than the Mountain King so there's not as much ornament room Sad  

I've got a third tree this year -- I found a blue tree at Target in the One Spot, I took a pic but it's still in the camera and the camera is two floors away Smiley  I haven't put the lights or ornaments on yet.  I'll post piccys when I do!

I got it today!  I woke up and saw it sitting on the table when I came down.  Smiley  I looked in there really quick cuz I was on my way out the door to Ikea to see the stars of Cars but everything is SO awesome, thank you thank you and I can't wait to dig into the butterscotch!  Yum!  Cheesy

I'll take pictures in the morning when I get home from work, but here's a shot of what I was running out the door to see:

Okay, finally pulled the pics off my new digital camera.  Smiley

This is how much knitting I got done Sunday as I bussed it around the city before heading to Depart-ment, walking from the bus to Depart-ment, and on the way home.  The DPN is stuck in approximately where the sock was when I left home Sunday morning.

I really need to find a job downtown so I can take CTA to work instead of driving, I'd get a LOT more knitting done!!!!

Thanks!  I picked up a cheapo softball at Walmart and dissected it and here's the resulting experimental sphere:

And now I have a nice big Gibson action figure to use as a model!

Sorry it took me so long but I don't have a digital camera and I finally finished off the rolls of film that had these piccies on them and got them developed.  So without further adieu, here's what I got:

The whole group shot:

The appliqued shirt:

The stickers:

The standups:

The sash/headband:

The awesome candle:

And here's a shot of the candle in it's current home (I'm waiting to put the standups up until I manage to properly clear my desk):

And if my partner doesn't mind I can post pictures of what I sent her (got those off the camera too).
