first of all, very cute earrings! you must have patience in cutting out all those corners & angles.

second, i use Royal Coat decoupage 1461 hi-gloss finish to seal my shrinkies. it's an easy to use spray, seals ink jet, sharpies, colored pencils, etc. five bucks at michael's.

that is a super cool clock, and there's no shame in being a huge harry potter nerd! i bought book seven at the midnight release and read it all night and all the next day with no breaks!

i'm also wondering, though, do all the hands move? or just three of them? and if any of the hands don't move, does that make it confusing to tell time?

you did a fantastic job! too bad you can't enjoy this hanging up in your own home!

your button necklaces are so cute! how did you attach the big green one that doesn't have the standard holes, and that i'm assuming has a shank on the back? i mean, obviously you could thread a wire through the shank, but then the button wouldn't face out properly, so did you do something special?

yay for buttons!

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.

very cool! how does it stand up? because in the picture it looks like it's laying down. i would love to do some girly flowery version of this for my expansive earring collection!

originally i meant to make a ball of them, but i gave up because the flower was difficult to make, being so fragile, and the end product is so delicate and fragile that i don't want to mess it up! =)

made from this tutorial: http://www.curbly.com/Chrisjob/posts/2354-Fold-A-Kusudama-Flower-Out-of-Post-It-Notes-

the result it very pretty, but i feel like it's so fragile that i can't do anything else with it.

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tea Cup Cozy 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!
