Love the Day of the Dead Altoid tin... good colors for its celebration too.

What kind of wavy blade/cutter did you use for the edgings on the top strips?

Diane B.

Thank you!
I use a dull ol' Olfa pinking wheel for the edging.

Wow I love 'em. Do you make the bodices and faces as well? From polyclay? Great work.

Thanks!  I'm not nearly talented enough to sculpt the bodies (I make note of that when I sell them, but I didn't bother to do so here).  These are recycled or repurposed porcelain doll parts.

Okay, so they're not THAT bad, but I wanted to warn away those with a more delicate constitution  Wink

Some of you may remember the trinket boxes I posted here a few years ago.  I never stopped making them, I just moved away from the internet for a while Smiley

Here's the first, inspired by the campfire story about the girl with the green ribbon on her neck:

The second, a Day of the Dead-ish piece inspired by my late mother:

The third, just because I like hangin' eyeballs:

The last, a deep gash that bleeds glitter:

Thanks for lookin' at my stuff!

I don't think you're overreacting at all.  The workmanship is painfully shoddy, and I too would be wary of accepting anything else he would send.    Embarrassed

I have my whole back tattooed.  I just tied a sarong around myself, with the knot at my neck.  Covered everything I wanted covered, but made it easy for my artist to work.
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: so, apparently my potholder is a nazi supporter... on: November 25, 2007 09:10:43 AM
I don't find Nazism humorous, but I died laughing when I saw the thumbnail of this, because I just knew there was an "Oops!" story behind it.  It's so absurd!
Great job on the finished product--one day, I'll start quilting...

Wow, cool!
Could you post the brand name of the foil you used?  Thanks!

Eee!  I remember seeing you there (I skate with Sin City Rollergirls)!
Great job on your B&B outfit!

Yay!  Please post a pic of whatever you create Smiley
The Latin means something to the effect of 'Don't let the bastards grind you down.'  I didn't research it, just relied on the fuzzy memory of someone who studied it for a couple of years.
