21  TWO Happy little Mirrors to brighten my life (Edited with better pics) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Molliemoo2883 on: May 26, 2009 10:58:15 AM
When I get depressed I make really happy stuff apparently Huh This was an Ikea mirror, I always have a spare one lying around just in case and I was having a bad day so I decided to make a bright happy mirror. I panted it and cut out the sun and birds on the bottom. The flying doves and the flowers are giant hole punched, ( By the way, I am IN LOVE with giant hole punches, they are amazing) and modge podged the whole thing and vala! Happy little mirror. I'm going to make another one from my cousins baby. And the best part was it made me less depressed so YAY. Hope you like it. Sorry about the crummy Phone camera pictures.

I kind of want to decorate a bunch of these mirrors and hang them on one wall in my room. I think that would be cool. Thoughts/comments? Smiley

 I have continued on my mirror making quest. This one is really simple and took under an hour to make. The flowers, which are also Ikea were really hard to cut, I ruined a pair of scissors so if you make one, use cheaper fake flowers with less wire in the base. Here's the flower power mirror:

Just a few notes, they are just hot glued on(alot of glue) and the mirror was black when I bought it.

I'm addicted to mirror making.  Smiley

This is Kool aid dyed wool carded with gold angel hair and a litttle bit of orange sari silk.

I also had a chance to go to the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Fest this weekend. Here are just some fun pictures.

I havnt taken pictures of what I bought yet but when I do I will add pics.

I look forward to fiber friday all week!

I have been doing a crazy amount of dying this week. A little spinning but mostly dying. So here is my stuff.

OK this is some hand painted wool from Wooly Hands on Etsy. I forget what its called but I love it.

This was done with Kool Aid Tangerine, no name yet

This was done with 1 packet of cherry and one of orange so I am calling it Blood orange.

This is Yellow food dye and Watermelon Kool aid and I am calling it Banana Sandwich. I came up with the name before I dyed it but it really looks like it so it worked out.

This is stuff I actually dyed a couple of weeks ago and just started spinning this week. Its also Kool aid, Its cherry and Berry Blue. I was so in love with it I wanted to dye more but my brother got into my kool aid stash and killed my Blue berry. Its called Candy Apple. My mom named it.

OK, my family has been complaining about this one all week. "Its so ugly, its gross, it looks like puke!" I think it looks like egg plant so I named it Egg Plant. Personally I love it and I cannot wait to see what it looks like all spun up.

Yup thats all I got this week. Hope you like.  Smiley

Yeah I do love my puppy and she does make my smile every day. But she chewed up my drop spindle and eats my yarn whenever she can find it. She also has a horrible habit of sneaking into the bathroom to steal and eat cat poop from the litter box...yeah its really gross but shes really cute!

Shes a 9 month old English Cocker Spaniel. Her name is Ruby June.

Hey everyone,
I have had such an awesome Fiber week. I joined a spinning group and it was swap day this week so I was sent home with tons of fiber and a new (used) drop spindle. I also tried kool aid dying which I am totally in love with. So here is what I have to show for it all:

This is the fiber I was sent home with

This is what I am spinning right now. I am not sure what the red is but the black is merino wool. I just wanted to play with the new spindle I bought last week after my puppy chewed up my little one.

This is wool I dyed with food coloring and then mixed in some green/blue fire star. I call it Aqua-Mollie.

This is the stuff I dyed with Kool Aid

I was also giving a huge bag of raw white wool that I get to fix up all myself. I cannot wait. Love everyones stuff, its all so bright!

Hello all,

So I'm not a major spinner (yet) but I always see all the great stuff people spin up so I asked my good friend to teach me to spin on a wheel. So this week I have something to show. Here it is!

This next one I did on my own drop spindle which I am sad to say my puppy got to and has chewed up a bit. Its still usable but it dosnt look as pretty as it did. But the yarn still turned out well.

I would love to buy a wheel but as we all know, money is tight and times are tough but I am going to start saving a little each month and hopefully get one in a couple of months.  Smiley

29  The Raven Mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Molliemoo2883 on: February 01, 2009 09:39:34 PM
I made this a few months ago but never got around to posting it but I am so proud of it. I think its one of the best things I made last year. The birds are stickers and all I really did was paint and stick them on but it just turned out so great.

It dosnt go with the colors of my room at all but I'm going to hang it up anyway.
