1  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Blythe collectors in NYC? I have a fun project for you... on: September 03, 2007 06:06:14 AM
My crafty ladies...

I don't know exactly where this post goes, sorry!  I'm involved with a fun pilot project for Fashion Week.  I'm looking for someone in NYC (or the boroughs or Jersey) who has a Blythe doll with at least 8 outfits to photograph once a day for the duration of Fashion Week (next week). If you're interested, pm me, or email to abh75@mac.com

About the project: We'd like to cast the eyes away from Bryant Park & celeb/professional fashion during Fashion Week - & take a look at what the rest of us wear.  We've compliled a list of regular folks we know with great style & asking them to photograph themselves once a day. They'll be telling us 4 points about their outfit, i.e. where they bought something, or who made it, etc.  We'll also be asking a random question of the day. We're doing a blog, a collection of photos on flickr & a maybe printed zine.  It'll definitely be a cool peek at NY street fashion which is a main influence for the pros, although none of those clothes are really made 'for us'. 

We thought it would be really funny to have a Blythe doll, with her fab fashions in the mix.  If you wanted to photograph yourself with her, that's cool too.  (we also have a few super-stylin' little kids signed up & a pooch) 

Let me know if it sounds interesting to anyone! Thanks!
2  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Summer TIKI Challenge on: May 24, 2007 06:36:55 AM
How about a TIKI themed challenge to kick off summer?

Gussy-up a beach tote, create your own drink umbrellas, make a coconut bikini,
whittle a cursed idol (Remember that Hawaii episode of the Brady Bunch - Peter & the tarantula!), beautify some board shorts, build a grass hut (err...).  Well you get the idea.

You could use straw or bamboo in a design & there are some brilliant tiki fabrics out there.  Could be kitchy & vintage.  Could be fun!

I buy sterling silver pendant blanks (for resin photo pendants) from here:


Just scroll down & you'll see the whole lot of them in all kinds of shapes & sizes.  They have great customer service & ship fast too.  I like them because they're a really clean, modern design so it doesn't take away from whatever you put inside.

Hope that helps!  Smiley

these are fantastic.  i think you should have a few of them prof. printed in large format, they're definitely good enough to be printed giant on perspex & up on the wall. so chic.

7  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / A Sweet Treats * Sugary Goodness Challenge on: March 02, 2007 05:45:57 AM
Why not a sweets challenge?  Crafted items with a sugary spin - think cupcakes, pies, bon bons, cookies, custards, ice cream, tarts, chocolate & such.

Any crafty medium could be used from sewing to painting, crochet to polymer clay, resin to recycling, beading to baking. 

A cupcake pincushion?  Layer cake earrings?  Chocolate bar wallet?  A lollipop lamp?  Cherry pie tee?  A creme puff pillow?  Felted fruit salad?  The posssibilities are endless (& delicious).  And what fun entries to see...

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Lotus Swap Gallery on: February 23, 2007 03:27:13 PM
I received a really great swap package from Merricat but have been too dang busy to post pics so she graciously agreed to bail me out & post.  Now you can finally see all the great crafty bits she sent! 

Adorable earrings & carded buttons, a totally cozy quilted scarf in pink & green that my stepdaughter snatched from me immediately, a beautiful photo magnet with her sweetie-pie daughter photoshopped into the heart of a lotus & a very cute felt pouch... 

She's the best! Smiley  Thanks again Merricat...

Now back to work with me!! Cry
