1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Victorian Beaded Cameo Cabochan Necklace on: January 12, 2011 09:16:41 AM
This is a beaded cab pendant/necklace I did for a friend for her birthday.

This is probably my favorite piece to date!

crystals, size 11's and 15's with drops around the outer edge of the cameo.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Halloween ShadowBox on: December 01, 2010 09:37:46 AM
This is my first posting in the paper board!! How exciting!!

I just wanted to share a shadowbox I did for my partner in the 13 days of Halloween Swap.
I cut out the trees freehanded, the ghosts, and the tombstones. I also handwrote/drew/outlined everything too.

I did follow directions from a magazine, it used lots of fancy Scrapbook papers, stamps, cutouts, etc., which I did not have. So I improvised and used Hobby Lobby papers, Sharpies, Highlighters, etc:
This is a side view of the 'card' before I put it in the Shadowbox Frame:

And here is a closeup/detail:

Here is the magazine 'inspiration' page:

I LOVED making it!

# of Flakers: 1 *angel found*

Because sendouts are not until August 2, and DinkyTiny has not sent her pkg yet, we are in need of a new partner!!
Her color combo was black and teal (fun!) and she crafted a navy blue pkg, so you would get that.
it's 4 points ( lg-3points, med-2points, sm-1point) and i can send her Q to whomever decides to help her out!
as far as the craft time, that can be discussed between us later.

Perlabella has offered to craft for DinkyTiny! THANKS!!

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Polymer Clay swap? on: March 26, 2008 03:00:16 PM
I have searched and searched on here and there have only been a polymer clay "beads" swap and a polymer clay "cane" swap. this is hard for me to believe considering how AWESOME poly clay is!!!!

so im thinking we could do...pendants, charms, beads, etc. AND maybe some type of "supplies" too. from actual tools to canes.

what do we think?

im more than HAPPY to organize too Grin
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / white is white. right? WRONG!! *with pic!* on: March 22, 2008 03:39:23 AM
so i wanted to try my hand at melting pony beads. i wanted to use colors that i wouldnt normally use, and came up with the Tennessee Vols logo, which i hate, but whatever:
I ran out of white beads and just foolishly went to walmart and picked up another bag, oh my, foolish me!!
can you tell where i ran out??....sigh.

i hope you enjoyed my little show, and dont worry, i have since melted many other things with terrific results!
