21  Captain America Mailbox in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by foldingj on: August 12, 2007 03:07:29 PM
My latest project is now complete. My beloved in-laws asked me to decorate their new mailbox. They are in the process of moving (across the street from me) and now need a new mailbox. Well, knowing how crafty and talented I am, they brought this BIG new mailbox to me to paint. I did ask what guide lines I had to work with and all they requested was to "make it patriotic". Since both are ex-military, patriotic is the way to go and what could be more patriotic than Captain America. Thanks to some art I found on Deviantart.com and some spare time, I have created a one-of-a-kind mailbox. Besides, knowing how much of a comics fan I am, I had to make something I would enjoy seeing every day, since it will be within eye shot for me. The only shame is that the whole internet world will see this thing before the new owners do. lol I only hope they like it as much as I do. Enjoy

22  Re: Geek Pride Swap Round 3 in The Swap Gallery by foldingj on: July 17, 2007 03:42:50 PM
I received my items from my partner (alana1223) and they absolutely rock.

All Items

Superhero Clock (I actually have this same image as my desktop screen wallpaper)

Superhero magnets (I love these)

Geek Buttons (What defines geek again? lol)

Video Game Ringtones, Nerd Core Hiphop (yep, this defines it. lol)

Stickers and Window Clings

Circuit Board Jewelry (Damn, I almost did the exact same thing. Great minds think alike I guess. Or is it twisted minds?)

Pez Dispensers (Death Star and Vader, what a perfect match. Now, do I keep them as is or stick a flash drive in them? hmmmm......)

Batman Lamp Shade (not bad for her 1st sewing project. I'm so proud of her. Now, I need Alana to teach me to sew.)

Samples (my beloved partner also hosts adult passion parties and she gave me a few sample goodies. I can't wait to try these out.)

I am very very pleased with what I received, as well as with what I sent and what I have seen from everyone else. I got matched up with a kick ass partner (seriously, a geek and a passion party host, there just isn't a better combo is there?) I am very glad I joined this swap and I look forward to the next one. I am getting more ideas every minute.
Thanks again to everyone and I will see you next round.

24  Physics of Superheroes in Stenciling: Completed Projects by foldingj on: May 19, 2007 07:24:27 PM
Yeah, I'm not afraid to be the first to post my entry. It was hard to choose a book to base the shirt on, for there are so many. But I love this book. I actually had to make 4 stencils, each with different areas cut out in order to achieve the desired effect. It doesn't look like there is too much detail in it, but if you look closely, there is quite a bit of it. But for the most part, I left some of the detail out on purpose, in an attempt to make it look more generic. Enjoy and keep for fingers crossed. I am already looking forward to the next challenge, whatever it may be.

25  Spare Parts Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by foldingj on: May 19, 2007 07:12:11 PM
Yeah, I know, just another coaster right? Well, yes, they are, but it was my first attempt at working with clear acrylic and I love the way they turned out as well as the endless possibilities. The parts used were all left over from circuit boards, computers, and one with nails (I'm well rounded). Enjoy

26  USB Flash Drive Mods in Completed Projects by foldingj on: May 19, 2007 07:05:08 PM
I know these are not original ideas, but they are still cool as hell. I carry my flash drive everywhere with me just to show off pics of all my twisted creations. These are no different. USB flash drives can be purchased for next to nothing these days so it doesn't cost much to make one unique. I got these (1 Gig a piece) for about $15 a piece. And the toys were only a few bucks a piece. Together, they make one bad ass flash drive that everyone would love. Enjoy

28  USB Geek in Completed Projects by foldingj on: May 15, 2007 08:01:21 PM
Show the world your inner GEEK. I got this idea from a car ad in Maxim. I drew out a USB port and symbol in MS Paint, printed them out on sticker paper, stuck them to magnet sheets (not the thin stuff but some vehicle sign grade magnet sheets I had ordered for some previous projects), cut them out, then ran the pieces through a laminator and cut those out too. I now have a large (and removeable) USB port on my truck to show my Geekyness. As if the Spiderman attached to my license plate wasn't enough. lol. Enjoy

Just got some new ink this week. I got Superman in Kryptonian. For I know I am not "THE" Superman, but I am "A" Superman. Yes, I know I'm a geek, and yes, I'm O.K. with that. Enjoy

30  CD Jewel Case Birdhouse in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by foldingj on: May 10, 2007 07:24:02 PM
So I recently decided to take all my pirated (I mean "back-up") DVD's out of their jewel cases and put them into binders in an attempt to free up some shelf space. Once that little task was complete, I was left with a big box full of empty cd jewel cases. So, what to do with them? I did make a few pen / pencil boxes, but then decided on trying a bird house. Sure, it turned out a little bigger that planned (as usual), but it looks pretty cool. Now, as long as the plastic cases don't focus the sunlight like a magnifying glass and fry any potential occupants, we will be doing OK. Hot glue and some free time goes a long way. Enjoy
