1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Remote Controlled Cloud Light on: January 10, 2013 09:08:19 PM
This is a project I created for a Digital Art and Installations class, but I gave it to my little brother for Christmas.   The class covered basics of several types of programming, and our projects were meant to be an interactive cross between art and technology.  This was a fun and easy project with really impressive results (if I do say so my self).  The same technology could be applied to many different types of types of projects.  The technology is very easily altered as well, for example, I was considering using a distance sensor or a light sensor.  I had everything on hand, so it cost nothing.

It does several different weather functions, and each color light is also individuality controllable, to create any combination.

Sorry the photos don't really do it justice! Check out the video to see it in action:

5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Beach Glass Sun Catchers and Pendents (image intense) on: July 29, 2011 03:13:13 AM
A big thank you to the craftster moderators for the feature for July and August (for my other post) on the Glass board  Grin Grin Grin

and for this :]


First of a series of what I can feel is going to be a very long craft addition for me. All of them are wire and beach glass some of them required drilling through the glass.

Also, I want to be able to photograph the translucency of the glass with the light showing through, but cant seem to manage to show it,it comes out totally back lit. Any hints? I'm new to photography, just got a DSLR camera, so Im learning...

The first piece I made, freestanding mermaid statue

Some sail boat pendents or ornaments

Little Mermaids 1 and 2

A Big Sail Boat

SAIL sun catcher

A sun catcher "Love is sandy toes and salty kisses"
any one have any idea where thats from? I know I read it somewhere...

thanks for looking :]
6  COOKING / Dessert / Easter Cupcakes on: May 07, 2011 10:05:35 PM
This was my first time working with marshmellow fondant but I'l definitely do it again. (edit: the recipe is a few comments down)
The cupcakes are also rainbow layered  Cheesy There are bunnies, chicks, eggs, flowers, ladybugs and a bee. My littles cousins loved them!
I used powered sugar instead of icing sugar, any one know if that makes a difference?

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Rescued My Old Canvas Shoes on: July 21, 2010 06:08:25 AM
The canvas was ripping away from the soles on these bad boys, my boyfriend thought they were absolutely discussing, they were so old he didnt want to let me wear them in public. He didnt understand why I wouldnt just throw them away [especially after I bought an identical bran new pair..]  A few weeks ago before my vacation I was looking for a project to keep me busy on the ferry ride, so I tossed them in the wash and these suckers were born Yes, I embroidered my shoes in public.  [this is only my second time trying embroidery, just kinda made it up as I went. I don't know any of the technicalities of it]

I might add some more to it at a later date.. i was thinking RITE FOOT/ RONG FOOT on the tongues or something just to be silly..
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Faux Wrap Pants first sewing machine project :] on: July 19, 2010 06:48:48 PM
For years Ive had an old singer that my grandma gave me, but it was always having bobbin issues.  Last week I finally got around to researching how to fix the problem (which only took a minute to do. It still has issues though, but probably because I can never remember which way to put the bobbin in).  I was looking up some easy patterns to start with, and found this easy wrap pants tute:

They looked so super comfy and fun, but I was having trouble understanding how they worked, so I grabbed a post-it and made a tiny paper pair to figure it out. I wanted to get started right away, and Wal-Mart is the only place near me to get fabric, and of course the day I decide to sew is the day they only had about 15 fabrics in stock so I picked the only one without Hannah Montana or rosters on it.  Being the dyslexic I am, I accidentally cut the fabric at 23 inch instead of 32 for the 2 pieces, and I didnt feel like adding panels, so they dont have much over lap. To fix this instead of adding the 4 ties, I pinned on the pants, then sewed one pant leg up at the top of the thigh and then added a waist band tie that ties on the other leg to keep that one closed.  So to put them on you step into one leg, then tie the other.  Theyre not the greatest thing ever, but there comfy and fun for around the house. Thanks for looking  :]

[plus if anyone has any easy sewing projects they could recommend, Id love it Smiley]
