Ok so I didn't do my cards on an actual childrens' book, but more on the idea of being drawn into the magic and fantasy of a story:

6  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES / *Flamingo Flower Garden Lawn Lamp! (or Shrine)* on: June 05, 2006 06:26:01 AM
I have always always wanted to stick big pink flamingos on my lawn, but because I don't actually have a lawn and because I really need a bedside table lamp, I created this - the Flamingo Flower Garden Lawn Lamp (or Shrine):


The three items I used for the list were pom-poms for the flamingo bodies and heads, pipe cleaners for their necks and legs, and popsicle sticks for the picket fence. I added a gnome to the garden (because no garden is complete without a gnome!) that I got for the Gnome Swap.

Here is a picture of the lawn without the background:


The lawn is made from grassy-looking fabric, which covers the wooden base. I drilled holes in the base to stick the flowers and flamingos in.

The garden background by itself:


The background is a collage of flowers, mushrooms and lawn statues that I rescued from a bunch of garden magazines my mother-in-law was throwing out.

And here is a picture of the finished lamp with the flower lights out:


Thanks for looking!
7  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 11 ENTRIES / The Allure of Mermaids... on: May 06, 2006 03:49:07 AM
At $2 this was the cheapest picture I could find - a bunch of Lords and Ladies playing some sort of game of Ring-a-Round-a-Rosy around a blindfolded man with a spoon... Very intriging...

This is the full picture with the frame:

And here's a scan so you can appreciate the strangeness of the original:

And here is my re-vamped picture, with the frame:

And a scan to show the detail:
A larger image can be viewed here.

The shape of the tree inspired me to to do the arch at the top (I was originally going to do a tree on either side meeting in the middle), and I tried to keep the positions of the mermaids (particularly their faces) as close to the people in the original picture as much as possible.

I think I might see if I can find some sealer to spray on it and hang it in my bathroom. Thanks for looking!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Heaps of pretty dangly earrings!! (picture heavy) on: May 03, 2006 01:09:34 AM
I've just started wearing earrings again and just can't seem to get enough of them!
So I raided my bead box and came up with these (sorry the pics are so huge!)

I've had these faeries for ages, not knowing what to do with them, when one day I thought they would look cute as a pair of earrings. The beads are from an old necklace I had when I was a kid.

I had this anklet that looked much better as a bracelet, so I used some of the beads, copper charms and links I removed to make these earrings, and now I have a matching bracelet and earrings set!

I can't take the credit for making these ones - they were actually keyrings that I had my eye on. When they went on sale for $1 (down from $10) and there were only two keyrings left, I knew I had to make earrings out of them! They're a little bit heavy and quite long, but they're pretty awesome!

I found both the blue and peach cameos at a thrift store. They were already earrings, but I decided to add all the beads and chains to make them a little more interesting.


I reconstructed these from an old pair of earrings (hence, the rusty bits!). The beads and chains were arranged in this stiff triangular shape. I added some extra chains, moved some beads around and made them more dangly.

I found these cute hairties at a thrift store that had leaves and lots of different coloured balls in bunches and knew I had to make cherries out of them!

I saw some earrings similar to these at a shop that I really wanted, but decided I could easily make my own ones.

My earring holder is running out of space, but I can't wait to make some more... Thanks for looking!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sparkly daisy shrug... on: March 16, 2006 08:08:40 PM
I found a pattern in one of my crochet mags for a top using this cute daisy pattern, so decided to make a shrug with it using the the typical rectangle-sewn-up-the-arms deal. The yarn is recycled from a thrift-store sweater (I felt so bad unravelling someone's hard work!) and is baby blue with a bit of sparkle to it, which didn't come out in the photos.



Close-up of pattern:


The pattern for this stitch can be found in my blog.

I was thinking of adding a row of sc's or dc's around the opening and at the end of the sleeves, but the pattern doesn't really allow it because I don't know how I would stitch in the horizontal petals. Any ideas?

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wonder Woman!! on: March 16, 2006 07:56:38 PM
Inspired by knitted Wonder Woman power bracelets I saw here, I decided to crochet a set of bracelets and a headband for myself. The project was put on hold for ages when I recieved a wonderful swap package from Geek-Pride containing a knitted set (oh how wonderfully stretchy knitted things are!), but I finally decided I should probably finish them, so here they are:


I originally planned on crocheting the stars in, but I didn't like the way it looked so I cross-stitched the stars instead.

Here is the headband on my head:


And a bracelet on my wrist:


And here is the whole set modelled by the lovely Wonder Woman herself:


There isn't really that much stretch in them - the bracelets are a mission and a half to get on because of this, but no one said being Wonder Woman was easy!
