11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / foam earrings - help! on: December 08, 2004 02:33:09 PM
i'm so excited!  new earrings!  i made a pair with craft foam in the shape of lighting bolts, but i can't seem to cut a nice circle (or anything other than a straight line) in the foam.  any tips?  (i've tried fabric scissors and an exact-o knife, but nothing's working for me.)

here's the pair i made today:

12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / london in a box on: December 07, 2004 01:14:32 PM
my best friend is moving to london for a semester of school, and since she's leaving a couple of days after christmas i'm giving her "london in a box" for her present.  i've got a couple of ideas, but i'd like more.  i feel like i'm missing some really good british stuff.  here's what i have so far:

     +  brit magazine
     +  miniature brit flag
     +  different flavored teas
     +  a bag of goldfish & a bag of doritos (get it?  fish n chips?  lol)
     +  british beer (someone told me they sell it around here)
     +  beatles album/pin
     +  'god save the queen' pin/sticker
     +  lots of stationary w/ something british on it (the tower of london, maybe)
     +  a monty python movie
     +  british dictionary (i'd love suggestiong for british slang words to put in there, too!)
     +  british cookies
     +  a picture frame with prince wil in it
     +  spicegirls cd
     +  guitar pick earrings (the picks have the british flag on them)
     +  brochures for random british landmarks
     +  map of london with tourist attractions circled (any suggestions for those would be greatly appreciated, too!)

it sounds like alot i guess, but i might not be able to do all of the above.  oh, and i was thinking of incorporating some london haunted spots in there somehow, but i'm not sure how.  anyway, help please!  <3
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / junk earrings on: November 29, 2004 11:23:41 AM
i made this pair of earrings from random crap i had in junk drawers & my jewelry box - plastic dollar sign, tiny metal weight, old diary key, ...  basically whatever i could find, lol.  


and, of course, i have to include a picture of the ever-popular guitar pick earrings:

14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / prettiest gift-wrap job i've ever seen on: November 29, 2004 11:19:41 AM
a few days ago my cousin's daughter, who's 2, came over and desperately needed something to do.  so i decided to let her help me wrap a birthday present for one of my friends.  here's what we came up with:


     +  garbage bag
     +  orange electrical tape
     +  black electrical tape
     +  blue ribbon
     +  kite string
     +  silver paint pen

i think it actually turned out kinda neat, and my friend loved it.
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / tree decorating on: November 29, 2004 11:16:05 AM
i absolutely count decorating a christmas tree as a craft, especially if you've hand-made ornaments or decorations.  so i decided to post some pictures of the tree my mom and i decorated a few days ago.  (ok, so it was before thanksgiving... we couldn't resist!)  

i'd love to see pictures of everyone else's trees, too!  Cheesy

so here's the tree:


and a close-up of the bow we made and used as a topper:


and my favorite, the lights-out picture:

16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / the uninformed swap-virgin on: November 22, 2004 11:00:30 PM
i'm relatively new to this site, and i keep seeing swap posts that sound like so much fun!  i would love to take part in one, but i have no idea what to do here.  how do you go about making a swap?  who can swap?  where do i sign up?  are there restrictions or things you would recommend a swapper not do?  what does ATC mean?  so many questions, so little time...

(sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.  like i said, i have no idea what to do!)
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how can i make a jewelry box? on: November 12, 2004 05:11:31 PM
i'm in desperate need fo a jewelry box.  as of now, i'm keeping all of my jewelry in a small plastic box that i painted black.  i was going to add some embelishments to it, but i've realized it's entirely too small for all of my jewelry.  and since i'm a broke college kid, i don't have the money to spend on a new jewelry box.

any ideas on how i could make one?  bear in mind that i'm not great with tools, lol.
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / note picture frame on: November 04, 2004 02:58:15 PM
i saw a frame done like this here, and since christmas is coming up i dug through my closet and came up with some old-ish letters and notes to put on picture frames as gifts for friends.  

i've only done one so far, but i like the way it came out.  and i didn't read the note before i made the frame, so a few minutes ago i realized it says "porn" on the side... lol.  

sorry about the crappy picture!

19  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / gold, starry fairy card on: October 04, 2004 08:36:56 AM
my grandmother (who is very into card-making) bought me a few basic supplies to make my own cards as a surprise when she found out i was getting into crafting, too.  and what better way to thank her than with a home-made card? 

i found this gorgeous paper (actually, i tore it out from the inside of an old journal i had) that has fairies on one side, and irridescent-gold on the other side (these pictures do not do it justice!).  i added a few gold stars, cut out some letters from another piece of the same paper, and came up with a simple, elementary-school style card.

i wish i'd taken a before picture of this thing...  so ugly.  it had a picture of a lighthouse on the front.  (i got it from a teacher in a secret pal program i did in highschool).  so i took some black tape, an old cd sleeve, some purple paper and letter stickers and voila!
