What a fun thread!

I really like those dog collars... too cute!

Here is a picture from my mom's Disney scrapbook page (I've yet to do mine)



And here is a card I made for my MIL's birthday. I don't think I'll ever make that one again! Too complicated! LOL

I really love that corset. I wish I could sew like that. My mom can sew, so I may talk her into helping me (that means, me cutting the pattern!) a new witch costume for the trick or treaters this year!!

It left an indent the size of Montana. How can that be comfortable?

Can I join

I always think I'm more crafty than I am. I get these huge ideas and sometimes they work, most times they don't .

Anyway, I recently made a toy chest and child's rocking chair for my new niece. It started as unfinished furniture and I antiqued it and hand painted the Pooh stuff. The rocking chair has butterflies on it (in case you can't tell ). They are all the same color but the lighting is messed up. I also added some grass after the pictures were taken.













I have been crocheting for about a year and I am now trying to get into sewing and beading

my crafts

Hi crafty DISers!

Here are some of the crafts I've done. Beading... some Disney related and other stuff just for fun. Also included is a skirt my partner made for me to wear to the Spirit of Aloha Luau!

Here's a tropical themed necklace & earrings that match my luau skirt:



Here's a necklace & earrings I made in honor of Animal Kingdom Lodge called "I Love the Lodge" - I'm going to wear it there on my upcoming trip!:



Here is a necklace & earrings all in pink colors:



Here's another tropical themed necklace:



Here's a summery strawberry necklace inspired by a pretty glass pendant I found:



Here's another Animal Kingdom Lodge tribute necklace (zebra inspired):



Here's a necklace I made for my sister's birthday, she loves butterflies. I found the marcasite butterfly pendant at a jewelry store and beaded the rest of the necklace:



Here's the Disney themed luau skirt my partner (hannacanna) made. We got the fabric really cheap at Jo-ann's! When I saw it I just knew it had to be made into something special for Disney World!




Here's a closeup of the luau fabric:

TinkNH - Love the Polymer clay stuff, your florals are georgeous. I know what you mean about it being addictive, it's so versatile.

Stina - great necklaces - inspiring for beads My new challenge is Lampworking (glass bead making) I'll definitely try those zebra's and cheetahs!

Love the dog collars & the polymer clay stuff!

My main obsession is scrapbooking, but I don't have any pics here at work! I am going to Disney in 8 days!!! I made some mickey mouse hoop earrings for my trip! I also do covered photo albums!

I'm too new for it to let me post pics, though. =(

I couldn't find a place I liked the quality of, so we ended up buying shirts off disneyshopping.com, unfortunately.

WoW! I loooove it! Your work is amazing! Are you on DA or do you have an online gallery where we can see more? My daughter & I are both digital artists, but not quite up to your level! LOL! I mostly use Photoshop and Painter, and she does vector work in Xara. Here's a quick drawing my daughter Jordan did recently in Xara...



BTW, the Kodama tree spirits from Princess Mononoke in your signature are great!!!

Hehe, thank you! I only just started teaching myself PS about a year ago, and I'm still learning how it works just by experementation. I'm also using a Wacom Graphire 3 tablet *hugs her tablet* but that pirate picture, for example, was done 100% with the standard "fuzzy" brush with everything at normal settings. Just two days ago I learned about the miraculous world of "color burn".

http://s84.photobucket.com/albums/k34/BlindTyldak/

There's a little gallery I tossed together of a few things I've done over the past year . . . *chuckles* It'll be immediately obvious that I'm very much still learning and trying new things.

That Beast is GREAT! Nice quote! I know NOTHING about vector work, but would love to learn and LOVE sharing ideas and techniques; we should start a digital art thread!
