1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting injury on: February 04, 2010 05:46:13 AM
I'm in 4 swaps right now and all of them require a good bit of knitting.I've been knitting away on the Mosey legwarmers from Knitty and my right index finger is now really swollen and red.It's still swollen after a whole day of taking a break. It's so random , that's never happened to me before.How does one get hurt knitting?! haha

Has this ever happened to anybody or any other knitting related injury.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Mini album/ or scrapbook page swap on: October 18, 2009 06:47:58 PM
Would anybody be interested in a swap where you could either swap a mini album with a spcific theme or maybe 2 page layout ? I'm really behind on my pages and I sometimes you just get stuck , crafting for other's is always more fun!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Homestarrunner.com swap on: May 05, 2007 02:20:40 PM
Hi! I know there's a lot of college kids , and even some in-the-know adults, ok pretty much everyone , are homestarrunner fans. So who's interested in another homestarrunner swap?!

I'd be willing to organize.I can already think of tons of things to craft as well.

I know there was a round one and talk of a round two.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentines box for my boyyyfriend <3 on: February 08, 2007 08:05:13 PM
Soo my boyfriend has a bunch of stuff that I've given him while we've been dating and no place to really put it besides a dresser drawer which is sooo not the place for my craftiness haha. So I made him a box for Valentines day so he could put our stuff in it.

It's also going to serve as wrapping paper of sorts because I'm working on an accordian style book as well , buttt that's another post on another day.

This is the lid and a better picture of the heart i decoupaged on the top. The metal charm is a walrus, a sort of inside joke between us.

Here's the sides , I put a quote I found around the rim . It says , " I want these to be words that affect you.Words that have meaning , evoke feeling.Words that are not self-important.I want them to have meaning for us.I want to feel them experience them.I want them to be not just words"

and lastly the inside I painted gold , and on the lid I put the rest of the quote.

Do you think this might be too girly ? does the bottom look alright white?

lol I am indecisive

thanks for looking and comments <3

This is a star coat book I bought at walmart.

( a link in case it sizes wonky)http://s144.photobucket.com/albums/r164/spolowitz/th_HPIM0218-1.jpg

My dad got these cool elmers paint things with the paint already attached so I thought I would try it out.
lesson learned varnish + washable paint doesn't mix oh well.

the pin up girl is from a 2007 calander. I decoupaged it on.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 2 collages I made for my boyfreind <3 on: January 14, 2007 04:35:25 PM
The first one I made today because I missed my boyfriend, so now I have something to look at to remind me of him. I put lyrics from songs that make me think of him , and tickets from things we've done and other momentos from our relationship.

close ups

the other is one I made several months ago for our 3 month anniversary. I used canvas and modgepodge and cut out pictures from magazines, it's really two parts this is just one but I gave him the other to keep at his house.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / For my little dingo on: January 14, 2007 04:25:15 PM
I painted this frame and added embelishments, I usually give them out as presents because they're way easy to make and are cute but this time I made one for me and my puppy susie who looks weirdly a lot like a dingo

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Painted initials for my wall on: January 14, 2007 04:21:14 PM
Sooo I think this post may go here but not sure

I painted my initials for my walls. I used acrylic paint and gloss, and some scrapbooking ribbon.The lines are a little wonky on the N but I'm pretty proud of them .

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / First Post - Altered Altoid tin on: January 14, 2007 04:13:31 PM

So I've been lurking a while and finally decided to post. This is pretty much my first attempt at using polymer clay. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

The top- I put a light coat of acrylic gloss on it. The stars were weirdly hard to make.

The sides- The skulls eyes are made of seed beads

The inside -xxx, halloween stickers = awesome

thanks for looking !
