1  Re: Feminists are Awesome Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Knitty club on: May 18, 2008 12:46:39 AM
hi everyone!
here are the amazing things calluna sent me. as you know, the package sat in my post office for a while due to some confusions between me and my mail man. they basically could not deliver it to my door because it was so big!! I received so many wonderful things from calluna. here are some of them:

a journal book

filled to the brim with cool collages. (she and I have the same taste in collage and mixing art/images with text.) these all really appealed to me in the way they were made.

as you can see, the journal book was really beautifully ornamented with symbols, quotes and ephemera!

I also received a really cool quilt decorated on the back with naomi wolf quotes!!! calluna and I both love her book "the beauty myth".

(picture not rotated)

On top of this I received a bunch of other things, including the beautiful cross-stitch that you have seen! (and that I am jealous of myself for - I love it and can't wait to incorporate it into something. maybe a cushion or a quilt of sorts.) I also received a really smart dictionary with alternatives to gendered (and often for women degrading) words. really cool, too. I also received ephemera which is right up my alley and that I have already begun using.

thank you so much calluna for this cool swap, I really enjoyed it!!!

2  Drink ticket bracelet for clubhopping friend in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Knitty club on: January 07, 2008 01:38:16 PM
I have been wanting to do this for a while. In October I went to Istanbul with my job and had a blast! We went clubbing all the time, especially to this one club called Supper Club. One of my loudest, funnest colleagues loved this club and became friends with the door man and everyone there. She wanted to go there every night. She just recently left my work place and I wanted to thank her for this time at work so I made her a bracelet from a drink ticket from that club.

It was a mess! The elastic string broke all the time, I tried to hot glue gun it to the laminated ticket, but it melted and broke off immediately! I eventually (after a zillion attempts) did not have enough string left so the strings of pearls which eventually made it to the bracelet were a little too short.... I guess it will stretch out on her arm. I hope the elastic string will stick and not break off ... We'll see.

Here is the finished result. Is this an ingeneous idea to anyone else or am I crazy? I thought it was hilarious.

Comments much appreciated!

4  Fragrant Christmas *WREATH* in Winter Holidays by Knitty club on: December 08, 2007 07:21:06 AM
Finally I got around to making a wreath for the holidays..... Here it is. It smells wonderful from the evergreens and the oranges and cinnamon stick I added.

I know it is hanging asymmetrically but it was horrible to hang up, I dd not have any proper tools and basically had to leave my door wide open when I went to my neighbor to borrow a proper hammer.... So what I am saying is I am NOT giving the hanging device with screws and nails another try....

I followed the advice I found on Martha Stewart's hompeage, to use a wire hanger underneath to make it sturdy. I have never done that before but I recommend it. Then I used brown steel wire to attach the evergreens and wrap around the wreath to make it look even. Anyone have any other ideas for how to attach the greenery to a wire base? I saw on the same web page that one can use a styrofoam base, but I am sceptical. Does that work?

Comments much appreciated!

5  Re: Karaoke theme party *HELP NEEDED* in Party Planning by Knitty club on: November 11, 2007 02:02:15 AM
Wish I could have got the links to you sonner. How was the party?

Hey manta and everyone!
The party was a huge hit! I got these helium filled balloons which light up any party, glow-in-the-dark bracelets and like I mentioned earlier, made these little candy bags for everyone. (you can kind of see them below next to the food. but they're opened!)

we (especially my friend the b-day girl and I) sang A LOT! It was great fun. between  the songs we chose there was this one Chinese song playing.really weird and fun!
By the end of the evening the ten guys (!) from the karaoke room next to our came in and did a battle with us and sang 'happy birthday' to my friend! she's single and their guest of honour was this really cute guy so she was really happy! It was a huge success and I can't wait to have more parties like this. they closed at 11 pm and after that we went on to our favorite bar and had mojitoes. thanks everyone for good ideas. I love party planning!!

8  First outdoor Halloween decoration completed in Halloween Decor and Parties by Knitty club on: October 06, 2007 08:26:54 AM
I just moved to my own place after many years of moving around and I just love my suburbia apartment and figured that I would do something fun for Halloween this year. So I decided to go all out and decorate my terrace really creepy. I just completed my first decoration.

Cheap used doll...

...painted white...

...just imagine seeing this in the dark of the night, surrounded by candles...

I hope the neighbours won't be too freaked out. This kind of decorating is not very common in Sweden where I live, although people do have Halloween parties and know what it is.

Any more ideas on outdoor decorations!??

So here are some of my best ATC's. Unfortunately they're not the best of pictures..... Sorry about that.

I really enjoy making ATC's and have recently traded for the first time.

I also appreciate comments! Thanks.
