21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Challenge 1: My Moonrise Over the Ocean Set on: February 07, 2010 03:36:16 PM

I love oceanfront moonrises and use a picture of one in my logo.  The calm, depth and quieting of that time and place are particularly peaceful for me.

This is the logo:

This is my wearable Moonrise Over the Ocean.

The whole set:

the bracelet:

The earrings (sorry for the kinked picture!  It does hang straight):

The necklace:

and the ring which I'm particularly thrilled over:
22  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / laminating film? on: February 07, 2010 02:00:04 PM
A friend recently got a new job in a school and is wondering what can be done with the extra laminate that gets trimmed off and then tossed away.  She's made sun-catchers with Sharpies but would rather avoid the kids using Sharpies.  She's going to see if they'll work as shrinky-dinks.  I recommended making bookmarks with pictures and clear packing tape.

What else can all of you crafters think of?
23  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Baby Blanket for my 17 year old on: January 16, 2010 03:17:40 PM
My little one isn't a fan of the winter so I decided to knit him a blanket.  When you put it over him, he stretches out under it and naps away.
24  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / seeking Korean stickers on: July 18, 2009 07:10:52 PM
I picked up this sticker pack while on vacation and would dearly love to find a source of it again.  The website listed on the packaging is www.thinkthing.co.kr but when I put it through BabelFish it doesn't help me any.

The stickers are gem-like tiny stones on clear backings.  The package is about 3x6 inches.
If anyone might be able to point me in a direction I can find these, or something similar, I'd greatly appreciate it.  I have Googled, Amazoned, eBayed, and Etsyed, so I'm hoping someone here has crossed paths with these.

Thanks in advance!

Have fun and I take no responsibility for your storage issues!
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / New Day Inchies on: June 24, 2009 08:22:51 PM

I'm taking part in a year long art exchange celebrating the election of President Obama (here's the project: http://anewdayanewlandscape.blogspot.com/) and I spread the inchies addiction around and made a series of digital inchies that I put together into a postcard.  The project requires at least one hand carved image and that's the "Hope" in the corner.
27  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Inauguration Day postcard on: January 19, 2009 08:41:47 PM

This is a postcard I made to celebrate the day.  It's a multi block print, front and back, with stamps I carved.  The squiggles you see are personal info I didn't want posted.
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Jewelry making on demand on: November 28, 2008 08:30:01 PM
I have an annual brunch to go to on Sunday morning.  Wednesday night, I received an email asking if I'd like to donate a basket to be raffled off.  A basket of my hand-made jewelry that is.

Which is really code for "all the rest of us want one of those pins you made for Betty!"

Well, everyone won't be getting one and 2 close friends are getting their holiday gifts early as they were getting copies of said pin, but dang if I'm going to make one to raffle off before I give them theirs!

Luckily, I told them that it would be a small basket.  And I actually finished the items today!

This is the pin:

this is a magnet strand necklace:

And this is a stretch bracelet:

I guess better this set rather than 40 centerpieces!
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bridesmaids' Jewelry sets on: October 02, 2008 08:52:25 PM
A friend of mine is getting married in a few weeks and I made the jewelry sets for all of us in the wedding.  Some of the ladies laid out the focal area of their necklaces, but I finished them off.  The earrings are a surprise.  Our dresses are brown with silver accents and an almost sheen of plum.

these are the sets, named after the ladies:





I still want to try to make bracelets too, but that'll depend on time.  I'm also making the bride's jewelry.
30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Hair toys on: May 19, 2008 09:41:45 PM
I was inspired by a posting in the Long Hair Community and came up with these.  Its a very simple beads on wire formed into 2 loops.  The two loops are placed over hair and a stick is inserted to hold it all together.

This is the hair stick that works with the hair toy I'm calling Orbit.  But the stick works alone too.

This hair toy is Starlight:
