21  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / New Hope PA - CRAFTY? wedding anniversary trip - Please help me ... on: August 19, 2006 01:02:25 AM
Hi guys, I'm planning on going to the New Hope/Lambertville area this weekend with my hubby (2nd wedding anniversary)  We both took Monday off - yay!  So, what's there to do that's like crafty and artsy and stuff?  And any other cool info you might have.  My husband says he saw something online also about a flea market this weekend ... thanks for your help!
22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Robot Love is Messy ... pillow on: August 13, 2006 04:21:32 PM
Hey everyone, I made this pillow for my first swap - my partner said "robots are cute" and "I like black and hot pink" so I used inspiration from many of you, none of which I could "re"-find, unfortunately, but you know who you are!  I found this piece of silver fabric at an antique store this summer - I think it was like a $1.00?

Robot Love is Messy:

Back of pillow:

Thanks for all the inspiration ... my fellow cracksters! er ... craftsters ... don't you find yourself on craftster so much, it's like man, I really need to be craftin' but I can't stop looking at everything!  Oh, and twigzie, I think robots are cute too!!!
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 80s child - Jem and the Holograms (without the Holograms) 1st clothing post on: August 11, 2006 04:48:16 PM
Okay, so first of all, I was born in 1978, so I grew up with the Smurfs, Carebears, My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, JEM and the Holograms! .... Cabbage Patch Kids, Litebrite, Jelly bracelets and shoes ... does everyone know where I'm comin' from?  So I wanted to make a cute 80s shirt to wear tomorrow.

I cut this Fruit of the Loom size large t-shirt into a more 80s shape.  I couldn't find a stencil online, so I freehanded while looking at the below picture of a shirt on 80stees.com.  Now, whadya think, should I wear it?  I'm planning on putting a black kind of wife beater style-wider straps than a typical tank top- shirt under it.   I know I shouldn't beg for feedback, but really, should I wear this in public?  I altered the hair and messed up her chin!  And I didn't have the right pink - I mixed red, white and silver and came up with this!

My shirt:

Thanks for looking!
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / His name is Rooster the Sparrow the Stuffie on: August 07, 2006 05:04:31 PM
My first "toy" post and my first stuffie!

He's made out of felt, some rooster fabric bits and his beak is a very tiny piece of vintage fabric, it's handsewn.

He stands because of 20 cents at his base - 4 nickels ...

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Paper Crane War & Peace tote on: August 07, 2006 04:56:08 PM
Hey guys, this is my War & Peace tote. 

I made it for a recent swap.  My partner is into paper cranes obviously! 

Here you can see it with the Story of Sadako and the keychains, random mini harmonica and one I made from an army man.  I also made my first paper crane.  I got two paper cranes in return from my partner! 

The camoflauge and paper cranes ... does everyone get it?  I hope so!
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / DIY Cherry Earring Kit on: August 02, 2006 05:45:58 PM
Hey everyone, I just finished my first swap - here is one of the items I sent.  It's a kit containing ear wires, jump rings, "cherry" beads and leaf beads.  I put "I heart Craftster" and "Just add Wire" on it!

Can you see it?  It's so tiny.  Sorry, there are a couple of other items in there too, we won't talk about those!  But the bottlecaps give good size relation. 
Whadya think?  Comments/criticism welcome!

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What is an FO? on: July 28, 2006 06:27:26 PM
I'm sorry if it's a stupid question, but I really looked all over to find out what you guys were talking about.  I've just gotten into knitting and crocheting ... sorry

Thanks so much in advance for answering!
29  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / A lot of pictures of my house - reconstructed, crafted - you'll see on: July 20, 2006 06:22:54 PM
OK, so we bought this house (one year ago this month!) that was a total fixer but it had brand new central A/C and they just redid the kitchen cabinets + appliances and the bathrooms so needless to say we took it.  It's a cookie cutter bi-level (some of you will be familiar with this style) Let me know what you think!  Also, Leah, if you're out there - thank you for inventing craftster!  You are my hero.
On to the pics, I'll try to let you know what justifies them being here.  Please let me know if they don't show!
This is one of the only before pics - that wall is comin' down soon!

And here you go - we knocked down half of the wall to make it an open floor plan (well, a friend with carpenter skills helped too Smiley  Look at the Roy Lichenstein inspired tea pot!

This is the foyer - yes, there are 3 colors there.

Here is the living room - I did a faux sponge with the 3 colors.  The two pictures that follow are the living room progressing into the dining room.

Turn around, you're in the kitchen now - I painted the lightswitch plate.


Other view of the kitchen - I made the recipe "house", with the help of my father

Down the hall, to the bedroom ... refinished the furniture and the keys.  I should've taken a close-up of them - very ornate and pretty!  I have a thing for skeleton keys, as you soon will learn.

Turn around, there's the refinished desk, soon to be make-up area (need one of those lighted mirrors)

The refinished armoire, I made the 2 shadowboxes on the left.

Close-up of one of the shadowboxes I made.

Made the headboard.  I have more of the fabric, which is reversible, and I will be making curtains and accent pillows with the reverse, Silver with Black fleur-de-lis.

Close-up of the fabric

Joint compound + paint + stencil =


Bedside tables.  I took these garden planter things and repainted the gold fleur-de-lis Silver, then kind of distressed it with Black, but I'm not done.  I need to make a mold for the round parts and then construct some sort of tile and mortar thing. 

And here's my ducky bathroom - I didn't make anything here, but my "friend of craftster logo" is a duck so there!

Thanks for looking!  What do you think?
Oh by the way, the paint colors are Afternoon Tea, Ladybug Red, Caramel Cream, Roasted Chestnut, and Cupid's Heart. In that order I think!

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting really tiny things? Please look! :) on: July 11, 2006 12:57:51 PM
Hey guys, I just learned to knit (thanks to everyone who helped me out) and I'm just wondering if anyone has ever tried to knit with something really tiny, like using two pins instead of knitting needles?  I'm thinking that you could make something really small like this, like a knit shrug or shawl for Barbie, using thread or embroidery floss?!?!  I love little tiny things and I know other people share this love, right?  Please post and let me know if you can do this or post pics of what you've made.  Thanks so much for reading all my lovely talented craftster peeps!  Love you all!
