1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunk Box on: September 12, 2010 07:13:48 PM
I found a plain wooden humidor at a flea market.  It had very nice lines and color, so I bought and decorated it in a steampunk style.  Today, I gave it to my friends as a wedding gift.

I was pretty pleased with it, and even more pleased that everyone else seemed to like it, too!

Thanks for looking!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "Coy Vixen" X-Stitch Bookmarks (1 w/Koi fish, 1 w/Fox) on: June 11, 2008 01:43:59 PM
Here are a couple cross-stitch bookmarks I made for friends.

The koi are from a handtowel pattern; the kanji (which, if I remember correctly, means "good fortune") I adapted from a larger pattern. Both are from the same book (whose title eludes me at the moment) of Asian-themed needlework designs.

The fox is stitched from a pattern, and I just used graph paper to chart the "dictionary entry" to fit what space I had:

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "Touch...Trust" Altered Book on: June 11, 2008 01:31:44 PM
I did this a few years back but only just rediscovered the picture:

The 5 dark circles on the left-hand page are typewriter keys spelling "touch." Other materials used include: gold paint...mixed papers...artificial leaves, flowers...glass marbles...antique keys...milkweed seeds, pebbles, tree bark....
5  COOKING / Dessert / Suggoth Cookie (i.e., Shoggoth-shaped sugar cookie) on: June 11, 2008 01:17:04 PM
I just rediscovered this picture of a Lovecraft-inspired cookie I made ages ago:

And just think: you are what you eat!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Boober Fraggle T-Shirt on: April 29, 2008 09:42:49 AM
I didn't really think this fit in "Clothing" or "More Art, Less Craft"....Anyway, I painted this a while back as a Christmas present for my best friend:

7  COOKING / Dessert / Basket o' Flowers Wedding Cake on: August 05, 2007 02:34:38 PM
I made this cake for a friend's potluck wedding:

I went with artificial flowers on the top after getting frustrated with frosting and fondant. (July is not the best month for cake decorating.)
