291  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / We call her "Dolly Dearest" on: October 30, 2007 10:13:51 AM
This started out with my 9yr old DD wanting to be something creepy scary this year for Haloween. We decided that she would be a creepy little girl. Like the one in Death JR., FEAR, The Ring,...you get the picture. So after reconstructing a costume for her I thought it would be creepy for her to have a creepy doll to sorta drag behind her. That's when "Dolly Dearest" was born. My DD even worked out a creepy way to answer when people ask about the doll.
She was a blast to make except for the clothes. I hated that part!!!
Here she is "DOLLY DEAREST"

292  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / MARVELouse Night Stand (Pic Obese) on: October 27, 2007 07:25:13 AM
My 12yr old has a real fascination for the comic book world. I bought him both the big encyclopedia's, DC and Marvel. I swear he has them memorized.
Anyway I decided to surprise him with a revamped nightstand. Doubled and damaged comicbooks + Mod Podge = 1 happy 12 yr old.



293  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My new PSP case!!! Pic heavy on: October 24, 2007 10:12:37 AM
I LOVE my PSP I take it with me just about everywhere but the case was a little generic for me. So I cut off the netting and decopaged it. It consists of a few coats of Mod Podge, a polymer clay charm, some bedazzler beads, dollar store tissue paper, a gargoyle printed out from internet, and some silk cording to hide the paper edges.

and before

294  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Blue Dragon Scale Lightswitch on: October 20, 2007 07:18:27 AM
We just moved into our first house and the previous owners had a ton of really tacky lightswitch covers all over the house. The 1st one to go was my son's. He LOVES dragons, but then who doesn't, so I made him this blue dragon cover. It's polymer clay with a metallic blue paint.
I am possibly thinking of making more to sell. I've never sold any craft items on the internet and I'm a little nervous.
What do you think?
As you can see we need to repaint his room.
295  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pack-Rat night-light on: October 13, 2007 06:05:35 PM
We just moved and when I was going through the boxes I found my DH old helmet. When I asked the all mighty question of
"What are we are going to do with this?'' (He hasn't ridden a bike in 7 yrs) he says we are to save it for our son.
So I found some cardboard, fabric to hide the cardboard, and an old nightlight and came up with this.
I keep the vents open and the shield open a little to vent the heat.
I tried to take a picture of it when the room was dark but my camera wouldn't let me. Damn technology!
296  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Fifi the bunny on: September 21, 2007 04:03:01 AM
Ok, this website got me inspired to make a doll. I had envisioned something just the opposite of this. I had in my head a punk rabbit. You know wonky eyes, big arms, and screwy teeth. After I drew the pattern out on felt, freehand. I was at first impressed that it actually worked! She took a life of her own. Too sweet for punk. Then I had to go and make her cutesy clothes and a ribbon.
But I love her anyway.

297  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cute little skully keychain on: September 21, 2007 03:54:38 AM
I got this idea from another crafter here's post. But for the life of my I can't find it, sorry.
Anyway here is my felt skull key chain. It's simple but I love it. If you can't tell what that purple blob is down at the bottom it's a embroidered flower.

298  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My 1st chainmalle project on: September 21, 2007 03:50:13 AM
So I've seen some really nice chainmalle projects here and some really neat ones on Metal Chik and I thought I'd give it a try.
Not as easy as I though..........and this was an easy one!
After a few hours, a sore thumb and pointer finger, and a half circle dent in my already very short nails I had this.
The rings are aluminum and it's kinda hard to see the 3 brass ones in the middle.
299  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Kid's headboards on: September 11, 2007 04:57:05 PM
So my DH and I made these for our kids last year.
My son is into dragons so we made him this textured flame headboard.
The texture is for drywall we got it at Lowes, I originally had the rock putty but that would have made it pretty heavy. Don't mind the white bits on it. One of his pillows had a hole.

And this one for our daughter. I don't know how much longer she'll keep it. She'd decided it's too cutesy.
300  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / "I Did IT!!!" crocheted flower belt on: September 06, 2007 05:05:50 AM
I can't crochet. I want to be able too, but I can't. I can almost any other crafts, but knitting and crocheting, no. Knitting is way out, tried and failed. My crocheting consists of strange simple purses and wonky scarves. Anyway I just found the ThreadHeads website and saw the episode for crocheting flowers and watched it about 10X. This is my 2nd flower the first is really screwed up. But here's the belt I put together for my daughter.
