21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My mom is seriously awesome! (NOW WITH MORE PICTURES) on: September 20, 2007 12:06:10 PM
So my mom(PrimAtHeart) is on Craftster too, but she isn't too familiar with using it so I am posting this for her. She used to make these all the time years ago, and then one day she just stopped. With some coaxing, she started to recreate.

These are entirely made from broken watches that she has gotten from friends, family, jewelers, anywhere really. I only have this photo, but she has about 30 made varying in size and shape.

I "borrowed" one for myself and I plan to wear it on every scarf come this fall. Hope you enjoy!

Here's some new ones that I took photos of when I went there today. The last 2 are necklaces!

22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Jeez. You're a hooker! on: September 20, 2007 10:12:46 AM
I am finally jumping on the bandwagon and screen printing like the rest of the world. I figured this was appropriate for both myself and my mother.  Smiley

23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fancy Schmancy new Scrabble Bracelets. on: September 20, 2007 10:10:11 AM
My mom and I tend to go to a lot of yard sales and there is always one a year at a small Russian church near her work. They tend to have nifty things and when we came across 2 complete Scrabble games that were 40 years old, we couldn't pass them up.

This is the result:

I actually have a bunch more made but I don't want to overwhelm anyone  Grin
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / What are little boys and girls made of? Kind of IMG Heavy on: August 20, 2007 04:51:12 PM
I've been craft happy lately and have had a lot of fun with kids story books and buttons and this is what I've come up with.

Sorry for the crummy pictures. I took them inside.

What do ya think?

25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pee pee and booze. They go hand in hand you know! on: August 15, 2007 04:21:16 PM
I love dominos. I also love all the inappropriate things I can turn them into. For example, this is what happens when I snag some Victorian magazines from my mom, a Winnie the Pooh book and a book full of Autumn scrapbook backgrounds.


26  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Vintage Halloween Swap? on: August 04, 2007 11:41:42 PM
I am kind of new to the swap game and am only participating in my third one, but I am a huge fan all of things Vintage Halloween....

Whether it be postcards, toys, anything!! The artwork is just so fun.

Would anyone participate in a swap like this? Anyone know how to organize these things? lol  Smiley
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Collage pins only a mother....or Craftster could love! on: August 04, 2007 11:23:58 PM
I have decided to get oh so fancy these days and expand from dominos to nifty pieces of wood that I have permanently borrowed from Mom's house.

Give me one 24oz can of Miller Lite, a vintage magazine, and a pack of Autumn paper, and this is what I come up with.

Hope you enjoy!

28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pin Ups, Guitars, Collage, OH MY!!! Fun with dominos! on: July 26, 2007 11:30:26 AM
I really really enjoy doing things with dominos. I have made about 50-60 new pendants lately and these are a few of my faves!! 

Hope you like!  Grin

29  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rock n Rollllllllll! My fancy new table! on: April 18, 2007 02:36:23 PM
Many moons ago I made a pin-up girl side table. Well, on one of my random strolls around town, I came across some Fender Calendars on clearance at Barnes and Noble so I had to buy them. Thanks to Ikea's wonderful selection of side tables, I was able to come up with this! What do you think?

30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More of Mom's Silver Beauties. I'm jealous! on: April 15, 2007 02:13:12 PM
Mom's kicking some behind making these necklaces. She's up to about 25 or 30 at this point and still going. haha. I spent all day outside yesterday taking photos. These are just a few. What do you all think?
