11  Recycled Cereal Box Gift Boxes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rebeccalynnis on: May 29, 2010 04:58:47 PM
I know this isn't a new or amazing project, but i think it's at least noteworthy. maybe it'll be a help for someone. Smiley

so these are my recycled gift boxes. I hated spending so much money on gift boxes for shipping jewelry, so i made my own.
unique, Free, and Green! yay recycling!
not to mention, they're super easy too. I've made about fifty of them so far. in just one day.

Basically a square, cut four slits(the bold orange lines)then fold (the dotted lines), and glue.
easy enough, eh?

13  How to do a zig-zag macrame stitch? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Rebeccalynnis on: March 24, 2010 09:53:09 AM
I've seen this method used in quite a few different projects online, and i can't quite figure out how it's done.
At first i though it was the square knot that's most popularly used in friendship bracelets, but now i'm not sure.
Does anyone know what this is called/how to do it/a good tutorial?

Thanks a bunch in advance! Cheesy

14  keeping myself busy : EARRINGS in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: October 31, 2009 10:01:28 PM
so the story goes, my fiance of a year broke up with me, and therefore i had to move out. so i'm living with my parents temporarily, and i've been trying to keep myself super busy to keep my mind off other things that i just don't want to think about at this moment. so here's a couple of my creations from today!
and i apologize for the photos. it's been rainy all week, so i haven't been able to get pictures.
i'll update when i get better pictures of everything (which i will, since most of these will get listed on my etsy pretty soon)

gunmetal, purple

gold, amber & black

silver and frosted white

gunmetal and black, long

silver and frosted lilac

simple, yes, but they keep me occupied. Cheesy

15  ChainLink Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: September 16, 2009 08:28:44 AM
Basically, I've had a lot of extra time on my hands lately. all my friends are in school, but i've decided to take a year off and explore, maybe get a job... you know, the usual.  Wink
my newest and most favourite pieces that i made are dangley earrings made with chains and random charms and whatnot.

i really like how they feel when i'm wearing them. so far i've made about ten of them, but i think i might end up keeping more for my self than i will sell. they're lightweight so they don't tug on your ears real hard like you'd expect, and the chain kinda tickles once in a while when it sweeps across a neck.  Grin

thanks for looking. comments and critiques would be greatly appreciated!!

16  My first quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Rebeccalynnis on: May 24, 2009 10:03:05 AM
and geez, am i glad i'm finally finished. i started collecting all the different fabrics over a year ago, and just finished it yesterday. there are 168 squares, each 6 in. x 6 in.
the back is an amazing hot pink and black houndstooth, very soft. in the corner of every other square, i added a little yarn know thing... i'm not quite sure what it's called, but my grandma used to do it with all her quilts, so i did it too.
i am just so pleased to have it finally finished!

17  semi-beginner in ceramics: i love it! in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Rebeccalynnis on: May 24, 2009 06:36:46 AM
i took ceramics and advanced ceramics this past year at highschool, and i ended up falling in love! i spent all of my study halls and even lunch breaks in the art room.
i never realized how much fun it'd be, nor how convenient and functional the finished peices would be.

i just thought i'd show off a little bit of my work here, i'm thinking about maybe taking up a class at community college next semester, if not, i'd love to find a facility i could use to continue my ceramic work.


i have more info about them and others on my etsy, too.

thanks for taking a look!  Grin

18  trying my hand at drawing - rock gods. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Rebeccalynnis on: September 23, 2008 05:51:17 PM
i've never been really good at drawing. i can doodle just fine, but i'm having huge struggles lately with trying to make anything actually look realistic.
so i decided to google some of my favourite rock legends and try to draw what i saw, without overanalyzing. most of the time i think that's why my drawings come out so funky, is because i draw what i think i should be seeing/drawing, instead of just drawing what i actually see. ...i'm not sure if that even made any sense! oh well.
so anyway, i am actually quite pleased, but i know i can do much better. so i just thought i'd post them here and perhaps receive some constructive criticism, which would be really helpful.

my first - axl rose

i tried my best to up the contrast in the photos to show as much detail as i could, but it didn't work too well.

second - jimmy page

and last - roger daltrey (the who!)

thanks bunches for looking!
any and ALL comments are welcomed, and greatly appreciated! Smiley

19  earrings and necklaces, glass and metal. in Beads: Completed Projects by Rebeccalynnis on: August 11, 2008 12:56:14 PM
i got a tad bit bored today. so i pulled out a bunch of pliers and all the weird jewelry-making metal pieces that my aunt gave me for Christmas, and tried my hand at something new.

my favourite is a pair of earrings. i've seen this sort of technique used on bangle bracelets, and decided to give it a whirl. i love the result. simple and still pretty.

these are just little charms off of another pair of huge tacky earrings. nothing spectacular, i guess. but i like them. very delicate.

and these are just two beads that i have kagillions more of.

and here are some necklaces that i loveeee wearing. not all at the same time, though. however, i guess could, it doesn't look that bad, does it? (ick. sunburn.)

this little guy gave me sore fingers. i cut and shaped all the wire and jump rings, but again, i think the result was worth it. i got these beads at the grand canyon, and they are kinda special to me, so i wanted to make sure they were made into something really nice.

and these two i usually wear together. they have those twist-together clasps. therefore i can connect them to make on huge necklace to wrap around my neck a couple of times, or a round my wrists. i love how versatile they are. i'm working on making more.

thanks a bunch for looking!
and as always, constructive criticism quite welcomed, and certainly appreciated!  Cheesy

20  Re: Sewing Machine / Serger Q&A in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Rebeccalynnis on: July 25, 2008 12:23:42 PM
i feel kindof ridiculous because i cannot figure out what the problem is here.
i've been using my mum's old kenmoresewing machine for years, and it's been perfect ever since the last tuneup a year ago. but now, i've decided to try my hand a quilting, and i've come across this, REPEATEDLY.

(i appologize for the kinda-blurry photo)

i'm pretty good with this sewing machine, and i know how picky it is, and how to fix.
i think maybe the problem is right in front of me, and i'm missing it.

basically the problem is that it'll start to ball up infront of the eye of the needle, and eventually the thread just snaps. i've tried adjusting the tension, and the thread & bobbin itself, and have re-0threaded it a zillion times. does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

and thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out.
