I've seen a few of these on here, and while I've liked most of them, I think yours are the closest to what mine would look like if I were to make some.. In other words, I think we have a similar creativity, and that's cool. Tongue

Plus, they're very well-done and so cute! <3

So awesome! I especially love the bikini. I wish I had one that was as comfy as that one looks!

This reminds me of the pieces we used to make in my design class in college. We used 9" x 10" illustration board, which is a really tough poster board with a matte finish. We were allowed to use only india ink, but we could apply it either using a Rapidograph pen (an architect's pen), or a paintbrush. I wonder if your daughter would like experimenting with these mediums? She is clearly very talented!

Cool! Thanks for the tutorial! (Someday when I get to have a dog, I'm gonna want one of these for sure!)

btw, I want your dog, lol. I love his attitude, he looks so relaxed- I bet he's fun to play with Smiley

Cute! Smiley

I wouldn't consider myself an expert on medications, but I do take a lot of them, so I do have some experience.. I don't know for sure if the glue will affect the hormones in your pills, but since you ONLY glued the case and not the insert (thingy with the pills in it), I highly doubt that it can have any affect at all. The reality is, any fumes or anything associated with the glue shouldn't be able to penetrate the plastic and foil that surround each pill. Things that MAY affect the medications are factors that CAN penetrate the plastic and foil (such as temperature and light). I wouldn't worry about it, but if you suddenly start having symptoms that may indicate decreased effectiveness (such as breakthrough bleeding or anything like that), I would contact your doctor just to be sure.

OMG, luckiest cats ever! My kitties would probably kill each other if I had only one bed like that- I'd have to make one for each of them! haha
19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: How does a craftster handle a bug? on: April 16, 2009 04:50:32 PM
I used to work for an Entomology (study of insects) research lab! We used isopropyl alcohol to euthanize insects. 70% works (and I believe that's pretty much exactly what "rubbing alcohol" is, but I'd check the bottle). 90% is better- but I think only labs can get that..

If you put the insect in an airtight container with a cotton ball soaked in the stuff, the fumes will cause it to basically "pass out" and eventually die. Ooor, you could just fill a container with the stuff and drop the insect into it (as we used to do in the lab).. The best part is that after about a month soaking in the alcohol, you can remove the insect, stick a pin through it's carapace, and VERY CAREFULLY arrange it's body any way you like- when it dries, it will be preserved forever in the "bug scientist" way!

(btw: yes, I know I'm a giant nerd, but I bet this knowledge could be useful for us more "quirky" crafters!)

I actually SQUEALED with glee when I saw this!! So unlike me, but I couldn't even help myself- I think the only thing cuter than this little guy would be an ACTUAL baby orangutan.. lol

And he's POSEABLE!? Genius.

I know this took a lot of work, and I'm not sure if you used any sort of pattern or anything, but is there any way you could illustrate for us how you made the "skeleton" part? I've always wanted to be able to make more realistic-looking stuffed animals, and this is exactly the kind of thing I have in mind-  but I have no idea how to do it..
