About

Yarn, beads, string, I can't keep my hands off of them. I joined this site in a mad fit of joy because it was exactly what I wanted from a craft website. I like to dabble in all sorts of craft techniques from sewing to crocheting to beading (though not so much of the latter, I don't have the patience for it -_-) Things kind of snowball everytime I browse through the projects other people post because I'll see something I like and say, "I could learn how to do that!" (exactly how I learned to knit) I think I have a great variety of projects up so have fun looking around!

Hmmm... I personally find that beading does not so much require patience as concentration. I happen to have very little patience and an unfortunately short attention span, but I do possess the power of concentration... Well, not really. Beads are so shiny, though!

Hi there, thanks for your kind comments on my Au Naturel necklace. After giving it some thought (and dealing with 2 sick children) I decided I wouldn't feel quite right posting a tutorial on bead crochet, because I really only used the instructions in "Mastering Beadwork" by Carol Huber Cypher. What I can tell you is that I strung the beads using 1 seed bead, 1 metallic bead, 1 seed bead, 1 metallic bead to about 3x the finished length of the necklace. I then crocheted it in a 4 stitch-per-round pattern. If you search for "how to bead crochet" there are some pretty good tutorials online, and even some videos so you can see it in action!

You're welcome, she is smart , she asked a lot of artist to come to her shows and show in the studio their craftings, but what i don't like of it, humm is that she always uses tooo expensive materials and the things are not durable.
but okay , i really love the idea's and some are really inspiring me.
She is a crafter , but like me all round, not in one technick.
but it'r a really USA thing.
for europeans sometimes hard to translate.LOL
I have made almost my art project ready so i think i will started on my goodbye gifts, have some kitschy materials bought for to use .LOL
had allready made my design on the computer so i hope it don't cost me tooo much weeks.
still wiishes i had more time to do other things-S
but ... that's not what i can do.
hey have a fun long weekend as well and lots of hugs and kisses.

LOL i have seen them all as well, they are soo sweet and adorable and cute.
Hey i have search for you this link to send, you can see how she needle punched it in a movie, you can see some other felting technics as well and some cuties;-D
yes it 's like knitting and crocheting and weaving that form a piece of fibres or yarn you can make every thing you wants;-D
or like modeling clay. but be carefull those needles are very very scarp and can harm you very bad.
so don't rusch , take your time.
when i 'm a little bit further with the other technic i will make a how to for here as well.
and you can make the webbing i have upload too from those wooolen fibres.
i think i will make some glass curtains of those webbings.
Hey much fun , like your enthousiastme.;-=D

Hi that's awesome, i've you need help or want to learn some tricks or got some problems just ask me
i have missed that a lot , so now i know the tricks i'm glad to share them with others.
i'm still experimenting with a new methode of 3d felting in the machine on felt fabric. i have some results that i like, i think i will make a tiny bag of it.
still thinking of some new things to add.
and felting can be very therapeutic it will ease a lot of people down.LOL
specially the wet methode.
hey much succes and i keep my fingers cross for you.
I have just yet written the explination of the boils of the sweater.
hope it's helpfull.
i'm a teacher in that art .LOL so i had to learn all those things, ;-D
humm be warned don't use the razor tooo often its not good for the fibres of your sweater
but it's a much faster trick then using your fingers.LOL
hey greetings and have fun;-D

Lol my ideas come from a few different sources the first being boredom lol, I'll feel like sculpting but I won't know exactly what so I'll just start sculpting and be surprised. Another way is starting one thing like let's say a cat and halfway through I'm like whoa ugly cat... he's gonna be a rat now. Or someone sez hey make a one armed pirate with a rubber ducky innertube and I'm like hmm I'll see what I can do. And when I'm stupped I ask around, usually through my facebook or facebook fan page Happy

Hi Pinocchio, thank you for your sweet words on the comment, you can make them too of polymere clay , or try to find a shop that selling them.
I have made them often myself of polymere as well, some years ago i couldn't find them not to buy.
and then do the same . but first add a layer of modepodge on it or of wood glue of of white glue and let it dry and then paint them
Hope this is helping you to make your own version.
thanks too for the fave;-D
