1  rosary and chaplet *religious* in Beads: Completed Projects by Luckie_Strike on: April 04, 2007 11:12:47 PM
So, for Lent I decided I was going to learn to make rosaries.  Here's my first completed project (mind you, I am a total jewelry/beading newbie aside from sewing some beads on a doll here and there)

it's a St Anthony chaplet, made with AB beads.  The metal parts look gold in the pic, but they're oxidized metal/base metal.  The beads are blue, pink and clear, not gold.  Obviously, I need to learn to photograph better.  Embarrassed

Here's the second one. 

It's a rosary made with a St Francis (patron saint of animals, so he's a favorite of mine) center and cracked glass beads.  It's REALLY heavy for a rosary, so I learned to use smaller glass beads.  Wink

I've made a third one (a Grandmother's chaplet, also known as a Mejdugorje chaplet), with purple and white beads, but haven't photographed it yet.

I love the Wizard of Oz!  That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture.

Thanks!  Can't wait to receive my 3rd one (come on Canadian post!) and for y'all to get mine.

5  Re: "My First" ATC gallery for all the fabulous newbie ATC Artists in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by Luckie_Strike on: January 31, 2007 02:51:06 AM
Well, I decided that I needed another obsession/crafty outlet, and decided to try out ATCs...these are my firsts.  I was originally thinking about using them for the Valentine's ATC swap, but decided they looked a little childish.  I did like my ones that I am sending, and I do like these...everyone needs to start somewhere, right?

right now, I don't have all the cool papers and images that some have, so I have decided I need to start stockpiling.  I also realized that doing something sweet is a lot harder than I thought  Wink

6  new baby goodies! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Luckie_Strike on: January 31, 2007 02:45:25 AM
Ok, so here's another set of baby gifts, this time for my sister's supervisor who just had her first baby.  It's a little girl, so we went with a little more pink than last time.

set of 3 burpcloths (flannel on one side, double layer of terry on the other), and 6 coordinating washcloths (flannel on one side and a single layer of terry on the other).  Made from the scraps after the gowns were cut out.  I found out I could get a gown, 2 washcloths and a burpcloth out of a yard of fabric.  Cool.

4 gowns, 3 flannel and 1 cotton.

made a little butterfly looking thingie on the pink one

My sister delivered it yesterday afternoon on her way to work (supervisor is still on maternity leave), and mommy was so happy that her baby got some new things, since everything else was a hand-me-down. 
I did tell my sister that after this, it will only be one gown/burpcloth/washcloth set for someone, unless that person is uber-special.  What set it off?  Besides her idea that I could complete everything in a day or two (which I could, but that's not the point), she also said that I could sell the gowns for about $6-7 each.  Shocked  Um, that's about the cost of supplies.  Non-crafters will just never know, will they?  Roll Eyes

OK, after a PM from one of our lovely coordinators, I would like to offer the purses above, and mini sock monkeys.  Approximately 4-5" versions of these guys

So I guess I'm up to doing 10 items?  Cheesy  Five of each, sock monkeys will be whatever socks I can find to work with.

::I promise, I'm done changing my offers!::

Hi everyone! 
I can't believe that I didn't see this swap before...and everything looks so good!  I'm hoping to get a pic up tonight of the bag I'm thinking about making (or at least a mockup--won't be lined).

eta to add: here's what I'm thinking of. 

About 8 inches across, 2 inches deep.  Colors would probably be black, navy, red, dark lime green (not an overly limey bright green), and either dark brown or plum.  Any ideas or feedback?  Grin  Oh, and there would be a coordinated coin purse.

I can also offer amigurumi, but since I got in so late, I'm not sure what to offer.  Undecided
