101  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Float light on: February 28, 2008 08:21:28 PM
I made this nightlight out of a glass float, a cardboard tube, a piece of rope and a leftover Christmas light fixture.

 and this is how it looks lit

The whole thing is about six inches high.
102  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / wooden crochet hooks on: February 15, 2008 12:21:34 PM
I made these hooks recently for a swap.  They are hand carved.  And I am told they work very well.

What do you think?
103  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / cribbage board on: February 14, 2008 10:38:01 AM
I made this cribbage board from a scrap piece of cherry for a woman in Texas. 

The spots on the board are branded on with a small branding iron that I got for my woodburner.
104  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / storage box--pic heavy on: January 16, 2008 03:06:48 PM
Ok, here's my entry in the challenge.  This is my first time dealing with paper like this, but it was a learning experience.

my book safe

I used the pages out of the book to cover the outside.  Then I used words in the book to embellish.
front of book

back of book

This is what I started with, an old music textbook.

the inside and with some of my guitar supplies

This was a fun project for me.
105  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Leather Christmas Stocking on: November 26, 2007 06:24:11 AM
I made this stocking for the stocking swap.  It is all leather, including the laces.  The buttons are faux leather (they are actually wood).  It is all hand stitched, and was supposed to represent a Victorian lady's shoe.  I got pretty close.  It is about 19 inches long.

106  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Halloween spider web on: October 31, 2007 03:31:16 PM
I went out this morning and it was only 28 degrees.  Just enough to freeze a spider web.  Check it out.

107  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Great Craftster Scavenger Hunt Swap on: October 26, 2007 05:38:01 PM
This looked like a really great swap, but it was before my time.  Do you suppose it will ever happen again?
108  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Look what you can make with Christmas catalogs on: October 13, 2007 09:04:19 PM
My partner and I made this starburst ornament from the pages of a catalog that we received.

It takes 14 cutouts the size of a CD to make this.
109  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / revamped cart on: September 04, 2007 04:41:12 PM
I found this old cart and rebuilt it.

I stripped off the old wood, scraped and painted the frame and built and painted new sides.  What should I put on it?  I have clean canvasses on three sides.

This is how it looks now.

110  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Maps? on: August 23, 2007 02:49:33 PM
I have eight pages of land maps.  Not street maps, these are mostly white pages with county lines and pie charts on them.  Any ideas?
