21  Re: Potential Craftster Meetup in Toronto! in Ontario by ninjanator on: March 07, 2009 07:44:02 PM
ok lol I was actually going to start a thread like this myself.

Here, I thought perhaps an image would help to attract some form of attention Smiley

anywhos, I dunno where to meet...perhaps at a cafe? Or a lounge? Or hmmm...a patio somewhere when it's warmer?

as for things to do...we could always bring some crafts to do - or maybe have like a mini craft swap - kind of like the sweatshop swap type thing? My mind is currently scrambled 'cause of exams season D: so I can't think of too many things at the moment.

22  Re: help with some word art? in Valentine's Day by ninjanator on: January 20, 2009 10:34:54 AM
These sound like great ideas Smiley As to forming the words into a heart without actually doing it by hand, if you have photoshop cs2, there's tutorials online that show you how to put words into a shape. Like so:

But if you want the words not to be all straight inside the shape, or form part of the shape itself, then I don't think there's a way (or that I know of) that would allow you to do it not by hand. Hope that helped Smiley

23  Lots of new projects :) [Img Happy] - updated with scarf pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by ninjanator on: December 08, 2008 08:29:39 AM
Hey everyone Smiley

So I haven't posted here in a while 'cause I was too lazy to take pictures. I finally did today, and this is what I've been making for the past couple weeks/months

bag for a personal swap:

hat that I made for myself, but mom stole:

the following couple of things I made with the intention of wearing/giving away to friends, but because they were either too small, or because I don't wear scarves anymore (go cowls Cheesy) They're up for personal swaps if anyone's interested (they've never been worn). Just pm me ^^


(this is pretty small so probably for a child under 5 or 6)

scarflette (will add buttons later):

scarf (scroll down for pattern):

I love this scarf, but like I said, I don't wear them much anymore 'cause I like cowls better Smiley

hat (from here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=135799.0):

some might recall this hat, but I made it a little too small for my head Sad so I can't wear it and my bro refuses to because it's too girly >_>

Anywhos, all of these were freehanded with the exception of the last hat and the blue, purple scarf. If you have any questions, let me know Smiley

After seeing beadedbyamy's awesome awesome snitch pendant, I asked her to do a personal swap with me Smiley This is my loot:

and because she wanted to make up for not finding a nickle-free chain (my skin is annoying D:), she also included these:

For my part, she wanted a wintery-themed necklace (not your standard green and red fare though, more like snowy) so I sent her this:

Now, it's quite obvious that this wasn't a fair trade D: so check your mail box every so often Amy, 'cause there's going to be a surprise in there when you least expect it Cheesy Thanks for a fun (and low postage) swap Smiley

25  colourful bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by ninjanator on: October 09, 2008 01:39:48 PM
I made this bag maybe about a year ago but never got around to taking pictures and posting it. So today I saw it again in my closet and decided to put it up.

closer shots:

sad thing is, I haven't used it at all... so I'm thinking I should probably swap this for some materials or something I would use. If you're interested, PM me Smiley

It's 7.5 inches long and 10 inches wide, and 1 to 1.5 inches deep. I'd wear it messenger bag style, and that would probably let it hit you just below the hip bone. It's lined in felt and has a zipper closure.

26  Leather Cord Necklaces :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ninjanator on: July 19, 2008 11:47:53 AM
Recently, I bought a lot of leather-like thread, so I've been having some fun Smiley

my favorite is the one in the middle but in general, i like them all alot Smiley

i find wearing leather cord much more comfortable than chains in the summer. I'm not sure if it's just me, but when it's really hot, the chains have some sort of chemical reaction with my skin/sweat, and it actually hurts my skin a bit.

Anywhos, comments, questions & critiques are welcome ^^

28  Fancy Prom necklace and new *bubble* necklace :D in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ninjanator on: May 05, 2008 06:03:57 PM
So prom is on thursday, and because i stink at sewing/i don't have an operating sewing machine, i decided the least i could do was make my own jewellery. I don't have any pierced ears so i decided to make a necklace Cheesy


another shot just 'cause i'm proud and because it took so friggin' long:

the whole thing cost me about $5 in materials Smiley so i'd say that's a great bargain XD

and here's the bubble necklace:

i am absolutely smitten with the glass pendant on this one Smiley

enjoy Smiley

29  Birthday basket for friend :) [img loaded] in Completed Projects by ninjanator on: March 22, 2008 11:19:08 AM
Ok, so my friend's birthday is coming up soon, and I'm not one for buying gifts, I like to make them instead Smiley I decided to go with the theme of "Beach" this year, partly inspired by her once telling me she liked anklets, and my casual observations that she likes items made from straw... So here's what I've come up with so far:

The whole package:

The "card":

(for those who don't know what it is, it's an accordion book)

The jewellery (posted on the jewellery board with some other necklaces so it might be repetition for some):

(pendant of a silver chain necklace)

all packaged up:

The scarf (she has a purple bag that's the same colour as the dark stripe...and it's still cold here so I thought I'd throw that in...I'm passing it off as a stripe of the sunset you might see over the water Tongue):

the colours are more true to this photo i think:

Does anyone have any more ideas of what I can make?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions ^^ Comments are welcome as well.

Cute!  I especially like the anklet and the button rings.  You have some clever ways of displaying your pieces for photograph - the piano is my favorite.  I'll be looking at my own a little differently from now on... currently it's used for displaying dust.

hehe yeah i like to set up creative ways to display my stuff Smiley and thanks

i am in luv with the button ring!  could you maybe post a pic of the ring portion?  i'd love to see how you did it!

i might post a tutorial once i get more wire Smiley but here's an image for now:
