11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / How I spent my Saturday night- on: January 02, 2010 08:09:09 PM
[ complete with flash and low light icky Saturday night photography, but o-well Roll Eyes ]

my curb chair [as in found there, with the trash] which I've had a few months and been meaning to refinish. That dirty blue rag is the stringy fabric seen around the edges of the original chair seat, where they recovered it and it all disappeared but what was nailed down. The seat fabric now matches my downstairs curtains. I love that fabric.

I love trash!

Now if the contractors would just get to work on the floors, all would be truly photograph-able!

12  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Sugared Millefiori Christmas trees!! on: December 10, 2009 12:05:00 PM
Sweet fused glass Christmas tree ornaments, about 1 and 3/4" high, made with sparkly green aventurine glass, topped with clear frit -ground up glass- "sugar", and millefiori flowers! The wire they hang from is fused into the glass Grin

I love them!


My mom also pointed out the millefiori reminded her of this candy, which I remembered once I saw it, and goes well with the "sugared" concept, but was totally accidental/incidental!  Grin

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Ceramic Christmas Ornaments! Stars! on: November 27, 2009 07:04:30 AM
 I'm tying one to everyone's presents this year, and sending some Fleur De Lis to people we volunteered with in New Orleans/Buras after Katrina [shh, no-one knows!] and my family from New Orleans, I love their simplicity, and the way they're not totally Christmas-ey and can be used all year!
 They're ceramic, fired in one of my kilns, rolled with a rolling pin, hand stamped, and the curved edges turned up by hand Cheesy

16  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Hand Painted Fused Glass- on: November 02, 2009 07:54:02 AM
Been painting my glass the last few weeks, the pieces are fused without the paint, then fused at 15OO again once they're painted, all these are just polka dots... Needed some whimsy and color for the bleak NY winter ahead!!

18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Amelia's Numbers Dress on: September 14, 2009 11:17:39 AM
 I started on Craftster in this section years ago, and haven't posted here in forever. My friend IRL TuffasSnails just had a baby and isn't posting, and I see that Vegbee is living in an RV [so happy for you! I miss mine] and am now wondering if anyone I know still posts here in the kid section?!
 It's funny, today Amelia saw me looking at Craftster, asked what it was, and asked me to put her "on the Craftster", the tiny baby I made diapers and baby carriers for who was completely oblivious of being online!
 So yeah, she's a 2 and 1/2 year old full fledged monkey now. I quit sewing quite a while ago, I think it was diaper burnout... so all I made her this summer were 4 or 5 simple pillowcase dresses. Lucky for me she could wear a burlap sack and be adorable, so simple works out just fine Grin

anyway, she wore this one to a friends wedding recently, and picked the pictures herself, she'll be posting herself in no time!-

I love how later in the day the ponytails droop and the shoes no longer match Grin

sorry for the overkill, but she picked 'em! there you go kiddo, you're "on the Craftster"!

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Things to Do on a Rainy Day... on: September 13, 2009 10:36:30 AM
We stenciled handprints on Amelia' chair. That's the short version.

She had "school" this morning, as she called it. She wrote letters, learned what a spiral was, and learned "outline" while we were outlining her hands... which lead to outlining on Contact paper and spray painting her camping chair.

If you live in New York then you know it won't stop raining for more than 5 second the last few days, so as soon as I set the chair outside it started misting, then I had to run in for a trash bag to cover the chair from [most of] the overspray. By the time I realized the chair is made with some crazy fabric contact paper won't stick to very well, real raindrops were falling, so I figured forget crisp outlines, and sprayed and ran inside with it.

Anyway, she's very excited to have her handprints on her chair [we've been stenciling everything is sight for days] because she's learned that as she gets bigger her hands will get bigger than the outlines. Still want to add her name, but with the freaking rain that may be awhile! And the point of using contact paper is that the edges are usually very crisp, so don't look at this if you never used it and think it gives fuzzy edges Grin

she loves it-

20  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Six Pack Wall Art / Suncatcher on: August 18, 2009 11:35:37 AM
I slumped the bottles separately, then stacked and fused them together. I'm thinking about drilling holes to hang it from, and drilling holes across the bottom to hang strings of bottle openers and bottlecaps and beads from, maybe some fused bottle glass too, but kinda like it the way it is too, I need to decide before a show in two weeks!
