I love those snowflake ornaments!!!
I want some wireforms to play with!

I finished one February craft....
It's a painted tie which was inspired by some etsy crafter who painted/silk screened fantastic mens shirts that my guy friend wanted badly.  I made him some for Christmas and boyfriend got jealous.  So here... boyfriend gets one for his birthday

In a set of three (all of which are from stash/thrift which keeps the cost super low but boyfriend won't know!)

I was the first to receive but I have been so stupid busy I haven't had any opportunity to post pictures.   I'm so sorry murbeck!!! It is totally not in line with how happy I am to have received from you! 

The day I received I had worked two jobs from 7:00AM and had just gotten home at 11:30PM.  It was so nice to be greeted by a sweet surprise!

See how happy?! (Plz excuse the pasty whiteness and funny smile)

My favorite part (including my pasty white concealer and the leftovers of my mom's expensive clinique blush which i totally stole last time I went home).

Animegirlie has had a stressful weekend and was unable to get pictures of her package but she has received and I am kind of proud of two of the items so I wanted to post.

Firstly, Animegirlie has TERRIFIC taste.  I want to steal her entire wist.  I also don't like copying anything so I tried to use things as inspiration only.    So here is the inspiration... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5340482

And here is what I made... (or an awful picture of it)

I painted cherry blossoms with a red background onto puzzle pieces and glossed them using nail polish (my mod podge looked funny).  I then burned holes into them and made jumprings for them.

And then a nerdy piece of jewelry made from the circuit board of a keyboard which i took apart to add some things to a bag of whimsys.

It's reversible

There is also a piece of plastic from the inside of the keyboard that sits next to the skin to avoid the bits scratching you.

I think she likes it.

I received from Claire313 yesterday!  Thank you so much Claire!!!

Here is the whole package together.   You've got some great pinking shears, the best looking  business card holder EVER, a homemade pouch, and her very first tree of life pendant!!

A close up of the pendant.

And this is Thunder showing off my FAVORITE PART!  Times are tough right now and I work at the Front Desk of a hotel so whenever I check someone in who likes me or we have some sort of hospitality connection or they feel like they might want to give me advice I pocket their business cards.  This will be a much cuter and much better way of storing those cards.  PS.  If anyone might want to hire an event manager please let me know. Smiley Smiley Smiley

Thank you so much!!!

26  Painted Ties! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lafemmefatale on: January 22, 2009 07:24:52 PM
I gave a friend of mine a painted tie and he couldn't believe that it had cost me $1/that it was altered.
So we went thrift store shopping and he picked out two other ties that he wanted to try his hand at.
The blowfish is his... which he didn't like too much... so I painted the other for him.

Here is a close up.

His knee is messed up but I can't wait to make more.

Ok, I thought and I thought about it, and then I wore the pendant around for a day and got compliments on it so I decided I was going to keep these items.  Then last night I had a dream, and it involved giving it away and not making myself any jewelry until I was able to find a jewelry organizer.  So lucky you guys!!!

I'm not super into pink/red so here is my version of our theme. Smiley

I'm 90% sure that the earrings are on sterling silver posts.  It's been a while since I broke out the jewelry making supplies. Smiley
Here is a close up of the pendant.  It has a robot's heart and soul (the soul is a rhinestone) in a cage.

Here are my entries.
First = Rubiks cube!!! For my best friend who is obsessed with getting the fastest possible time on her rubiks cube and any and all puzzles

I accidentally made it the right size too! I just found something square in my house to make a cube pattern on the felt and it just so happened to be perfect after the ornament was put together!

And three swallows for my friend who has three swallow tattoos on his wrist.  It has to do with his father and his siblings and the song.

These are direct copies of the leather swallow on the flicker link that our dear holiday crusador posted for us!!!
