1  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Muh Punkins... on: October 31, 2007 12:11:48 AM
These are my Pumpkins. There were three but I punched one of them for shriveling up and killed it! (It was Rob Zombie's Living Dead Girl. Now it's face-less thing with dreadlocks.) Here are the survivors...

Jack Skelington-O'Lantern Smiley

(His teeth are messed up but I only had one carving tool that was dull as hell so I think it's pretty damn good!!!)

El Diablo

(His mouth is crooked and his horn cracked when I was carrying it but it came out the way I wanted it to, overall.)

My creations soaking in WD-40 for preservation.

What do you guys think???
There all from stencils I got from www.zombiepumpkins.com
Who says I'm too old for Halloween?Huh
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Drop 89 cents at a thrift store and what do you get??? on: October 27, 2007 10:19:49 PM
Record Bowls! Smiley

I made a ton of them, even some colored ones from some wierd 70s square dancing records. LOL

Here's the one I didn't get at the thrift but it was taking up space so I decided I'd get better use out of it as a bowl...

What do ya think??? (Yes, I know... it's not original, but if was fun!)
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Vintage "The King" Decopauged Stash Box on: October 27, 2007 10:13:01 PM
I keep buying these wierd little cardboard boxes from Walmart. (I'm one of those crazy impulse shoppers so if i see something that says 99 cents, it ends up in my cart.)

I bought a bunch of crappy records from the local thrift department store and came across an original Elvis Presley Advert. Sleeve. The whole thing was covered in his albums with tons of pics so I figured...

Crappy Cardboard Boxes + Crappy Vinyl/Awesome Advert. Sleeve =


The only thing I added after the mod podge and sealer was some tack back felt for a liner and...

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Boredom and Halloween go hand in hand! on: October 24, 2007 10:27:18 PM
I made a orange and black scarve for a friend's son and a birthday present and had alot of yarn left, and was bored out of my mind, so I just whipped this up.

It's a jackolantern mat. Smiley

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Decopauged Wooden Book Stash Box on: October 24, 2007 10:16:58 PM
I bought this stash box from Hobby Lobby for 2 dollars and couldn't figure out what to do with it. I didn't know if I wanted to decopauge it, paint it, or Antique it. Finally, I decided on the easiest thing...Decopauge! I got some scrapbooking paper, tack-back felt, and a couple of magazines and "Voila!"

What do ya think???
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Recrafted -Misfits- Stool... on: October 24, 2007 10:09:39 PM
I haven't posted any of my work on here yet so I figured "What the hell?"

I found this ratty old stool at a thrift store for 5 bucks. It was totally gross and looked like it had a sweat- stain, butt-print on it, but I knew I could get something cool out of it. Sorry I don't have any before pics, I was just so eager to start it that I didn't take any. The only thing that is original to the stool is the wooden base.

I used black denim for the seat. Green With Envy Ribbon as an adornment, Green Matte Fabric paint for the -Misfits- (Crimson Ghost) design, and Jellybean Green Paint/Stain for the base. It took me about 45 minutes to do the seat and 2 hours to do the base. I had to sand it all by hand, (it was pretty beat up and splintered), and I used 2 coats of paint/stain. I think I did pretty damn good, if I don't say so myself. (Don't mind my big head, LOL.) What do you think???

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swap Ettiquette... on: October 22, 2007 12:53:10 AM

I must be a little daft because I've been lurking on Craftster for sometime and I still do not know what the deal is with Swaps.

I've tried to find some answers on here about it but I can only assume I'm not looking in the right place.

Here's what I want to know...

1. How does the swap work?
2. How do I find a swap partner?
3. Are there specific guidlines for swaps?
4. Are there other swaps besides the monthly posted swaps?
5. What if a swap partner flakes out after you've already sent them their package? (I know the buddy system is awesome but I still have a problem seeing the glass half-full. I also know Craftster is not liable but do we report flaky swappers?)

If anyone can please help me out, I'd really appreciate it.
