1  keyboard jewelry & button jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LampLitHavens on: March 18, 2009 11:25:37 AM
i color coordinated stacks of buttons to make these cute little rings. the first ring has a sailor-themed focal button.

i found these keyboard keys at circuit city. people had pried them off the display keyboards and they were scattered around the shelves, so i just scooped them into my pocket. i like making nerdy jewelry with them! i made rings and earring posts with them.

thanks for looking!

4  shrinky dink ring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by LampLitHavens on: May 09, 2008 11:58:11 AM
thank you planet june for your excellent tutorial on how to make shrinky dink rings! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228409.0

i didn't have rubberstamps, so i traced swirly images with a fine-point sharpie on my shrinky dink. i also couldn't wrap my ring around a lip balm tube because i wear a size nine (fat fingers!), so i used a random metal tool in my boyfriend's dad's garage.

also, the proportions i used for a size 9 ring were 5.5 inches by .75 inches.

6  Tea Cup Cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by LampLitHavens on: May 07, 2008 12:14:11 PM
So, funny story. This cozy started life as a fingerless glove, using the pattern found here: http://ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/pgloves.html

But silly me, I used a 4.5 mm needle instead of a 3.5 mm needle and thought everything would turn out ok because I have large (read: fat) wrists. It turned out way too big for me, so I reconsidered, modified, and turned it into a cozy for my teacup instead.

The bonus is that I've been planning to make a teacup cozy for a while now, ever since I started drinking peppermint tea (it's supposed to calm an upset stomach). So at least I got that out of my mistake!

With a lovely view of the hole where the handle goes:

A full frontal view (the white flecks are from the cup's design peeking through. It's a Goofy cup).

Brewing a cup of Stash Premium Peppermint tea (I only drink herbal teas because they're not made from real tea leaves. I actually don't like the taste of tea!)

Once my fingers recover from their knitting cramp, I'll try the fingerless gloves again!

7  slightly useful magazine bowl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LampLitHavens on: August 23, 2007 12:37:53 PM
you can't eat out of this bowl, but it is quite decorative.

the inside is so colorful!

here's a side view

here it is being slightly useful

i think the bottom is quite pretty myself

i want to make more bowls and perfect the shape. and maybe make different motifs.

8  colorful magazine bowl-not to be used for eating in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LampLitHavens on: August 23, 2007 12:26:18 PM
i've been working on this magazine bowl on and off for months. i was inspired by cbass's bowls here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71395.0

a view of the inside

the side view is better

here it is being useful

an upside down view-just for fun

i still have to work on the shape. but it was great fun making this bowl and i'll be perfecting it.
