1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Frog Princes! on: May 09, 2007 06:20:20 PM
I made these little guys the other day... I used a drawing of mine to trace onto fabric with a textile marker (since I don't have a gocco....Boo hiss! I neeeeed one!!!)

I just traced the image onto the green fabric, cut it out, then cut out some patterned fabric for the backs, sewed 'em up real quick, and voila! I gave one to my friend that I went to visit in Annapolis yesterday. She squealed when she saw it!  Grin
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Some fun circus-y brooches made from stuff I had lying around! on: May 09, 2007 06:15:27 PM
I was bored today and felt like making something (I haven't in a while! Eek!), so I opened up my craft "junk" drawer.... its got all sorts of odds and ends in it, like felt scraps, bags of ribbon scraps, buttons, marbles, feathers....all the good stuff!  Grin Anyway, I came across a baggie filled with vintage Hallmark "friendship buttons" (What are they? I have no idea. Something from the 80s, no doubt! But they're cute!). I've been trying to think of something to make with them, and have been coming up blank all the time! Today, I was especially determined, and I whipped up these!

I had sososoooo much fun making them! They were super-quick and easy, and the possibilities are endless! I plan on making a whole bunch of these! I think the alligator one is my favorite! My mom likes the ice cream one, so she might be getting one similar to that for Mother's Day....shhhh! Don't tell her!  Wink
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My first two paintings! on: May 02, 2007 02:17:16 PM
I've been meaning to make a few paintings, and I FINALLY got around to it today. The Tea Party started as a drawing I did a while back, and I thought it would look nice on canvas! I left the birds in pencil, but I'm thinking about going over them with a black paint-marker. Can't decide. The second started out as just bunnies, but then I was feeling a little evil, so I drew that mysterious tail sticking out of a bush for fun...

I Think We're Being Watched...

I think they're my new favorite thing to make.  Grin

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I wasn't sure where to put this...Fred Flare "Next Big Thing" 2007 contest! on: March 27, 2007 09:19:27 AM

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What should a beginning knitter know to start? Share your wisdom! on: March 17, 2007 08:57:17 AM
I received a Knitting for Dummies book from my swappie-pal Peachcake, and I really want to try it.... but I don't even know where to start! I read the book, and it seems to be packed with good info, but I want to know what the book doesn't say...

What kind of hints, tips, pearls of wisdom can you share with a beginning (ok, not even a beginner YET) knitter? What's a good project to start out with? What size needle is easiest to work with for a beginner? What brand/type of yarn is best to start out with?

Share your knowledge here!  Grin
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Strange little bunny-creature on: March 17, 2007 08:53:44 AM
I got this fabric for $1 at WalMart, and I just had to make something strange with it..... so I made this lil' bunny-creature.

He's my first non-felt stuffie. I think I love him.  Grin
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Heel-socks..... so you can wear socks with flats and not look dumb! on: March 12, 2007 09:49:25 AM
I got these adorable flats at Hot Topic the other day, but they didn't have any half sizes, so I had to get an 8...they're a little big and slip up and down on the heel. So...... I made these:

They protect my heel, but don't look TOO stupid with flats (except for the fact that they say Old Navy on the front.... they were the only pair I had to cut up. I'm going thrifting today to find some plain ones!)  Grin I think they're actually kinda cute.

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / How do I update an invoice? on: March 11, 2007 06:37:50 AM
Could someone please help me out with this?

I have a customer who purchased multiple items from me, but in separate transactions. I don't want to charge her full-priced shipping for all of her items; I will just combine her orders. How do I update the invoice and refund the extra shipping costs to her?
