Ahh!  Awesome stitching!  I want the first one in my bathroom.

Thank you! That's actually exactly where that one
will go as soon as I have my very own homestead  Smiley

I loooooove The Office! I think I totally need some Dwight-isms around my house. although Stanley may just be my favorite. I think this would make an excellent cross stitch!

Ahhhhhh, so funny!! I have to do a Stanley cross-stitch now!
I peeked at your projects, and I LOVE the hats you've made!
If you're interested, I'm always up for personal swapping....

Haha, I just watched that one today! Or how about, "Did I stutter?" Grin I just watched a massive The Office marathon on Netflix instant! I really like the font you used for the stitches too!

Love it! Again, how could I have forgotten Stanley?!
Shame on me. Don't you love Netflix instant??
It's the best  Smiley Also, I'll put this in the original post,
but if anyone's interested, I use this website to
generate my patterns; it's great, and free with no
downloads needed: http://www.yourpersonalizedpattern.com/
On the drop-down menu for font choices, I used
"fancy" for these guys.

Thank you all for your comments and feedback!
I'm a pretty new cross-sticher, so I really appreciate it  Cheesy

Howdy, fellow Craftsters! Long time no post.

I made these quite awhile ago, and am just now
getting around to posting them.

I am an Office FANATIC, though I missed most of
season 5 due to a crazy work schedule *sniffle, tear*
but we- I work at a library- just got them on DVD so
I plan on catching up! Anyhoo, here's the goods:

This little lovely from my favorite character sits atop
my repurposed Ikea jewelry holder. Nothing like a
little nugget of Dwight wisdom to start the day  Wink

Close-up.





This one is still raw and unframed- I tend to get really
into a project, then poop out (shame on me!) Oh well,
I'll get around to it eventually.

Ohh, Michael, how I love thee...




These still crack me up a little whenever I look at 'em!
Hope you enjoyed; thanks for looking  Smiley
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Desperately Searching for Leaf Pinch Bails? on: September 23, 2009 08:58:51 AM
Hi all! Long time no post!

I have searched high and low, and am now turning to fellow Craftsters for help! I taking my first stab at jewelry making- the only thing I need to make my new necklaces complete? I need veined leaf pinch bails, just like the ones pictured here:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7Js6mOjdl1Y/SmfbXheKPFI/AAAAAAAACJQ/g2mwDJ8tJko/s1600/dsk%2Beki5.jpg

I love how you can't see the loop where the chain runs (since the leaf acts as the loop)- I think it really adds an organic quality to the necklace. I also love how the leaf looks a bit curvy in shape, as well. I've found other leaf pinch bails, but they look chincy in comparison, or they have that loop on top the leaf which I don't want (see picture below.)



I would be eternally grateful to you if you could share your jewelry wisdom with me! I have exhausted Google and don't know where else to look. If there's a catalog you know about that supplies these, I'd love to know which one. Thank you!!

BTW, if you haven't heard of DSK Jewelry, you should go check out her stuff here: http://www.dskjewelry.blogspot.com/ Her jewelry is incredibly beautiful and I'd love to buy some of her pieces, but they're out of my measly graduate student budget, and they seem simple enough that I decided to make my own versions (for myself, never for sale.) Enjoy, and thanks again!

I would LOVE to do this, as well!! Ditto the last comment on price keeping me from buying a set- it'd be so much better to make your own/one for someone else! I also won't be available to swap starting in May, as grad school will then own my life  Tongue

Hey, guys! I would LOVE to get in on this-- perfect timing if it happens, as I don't start grad school until May!  Smiley

I think it's great! Very sophisticated, and it would look perfect on either a plain gold chain or one with some similar beads to the eggs. Would you mind sharing the techniques/methods you used? I'd love to create something similar!  Cheesy

I'm right outside of A2 (but I'm there all the time for school- or, I should say was, now that I'm all graduated  Cheesy)... it'd be fun to have a crafting meet-up in a coffee house or something with other local Craftsters!

I want to do my kitchen (in the house I don't have) entirely in Kawaii stuff.

I was wondering about the weight of tiny little desserts. For some reason, heavy jewelery really bothers me, but I definitely need cupcake earrings/necklace! How heavy are they? Compared to, let's say, a nickle?

Oh, the possibilities of a Kawaii-ed kitchen! If you happen to come by your very own kitchen sometime in the future, do send me pics.  Wink

Not gonna lie, those little earrings pack a bit of a weighted punch on the good ol' earlobes- not exactly sure, but I'd say they weight as much (and likely more) than a nickel. I also hate wearing earrings that are heavy, as my ears tend to get sore really quickly- so I probably won't be wearingthe little guys regularly  Undecided (the weight isn't terrible, but enough to be slightly annoying.) And I really don't think there's a way to cut back on their weight in any significant way without taking away from their cuteness...

Oh wow these are adorable. I love tiny foods Cheesy You are soooo pretty. The little treats on your ears suit you. You look like Hayden Panettiere in that pict

Wow, thanks, Gardens! I really appreciate it. I actually get told I look just like Hayden Panettiere almost every day at work by patrons, haha- its definetly a compliment, so thanks!

I haven't worked with Polymer clay yet, but cute cupcake earrings sure do make me want to run to Michael's and grab some Sculpey! Great job! P.S. That link rocks. P.P.S. I love mineral makeup too!

Thanks! That website is MADE of awesomeness; I think I saved every other one, at least   Shocked Grin. One of my favorites: cute little spoon- Wanna spoon? Little fork back- Id rather fork! hehehe.

Everything looks so sweet (pun intended....yeah I'm not that funny). I really like the lolly's!!

And I cant believe no one has mentioned it already (edit: oops...I see now someone else did mention too aha)....but you look like a spitting image of Claire from Heroes!! Hayden Penetierre (sp?)...anyways, very pretty!

Thanks! Lollys are the easiest to make but they turn out awesome.

Wow, hahaditto response above! Thanks a lot; shes very pretty!  Cheesy
