Originally posted by squidcoma at From Gross to Gothy (Upcycled music box edition)
So I have made quite a few upcycled trinket boxes from thrift shops and the reuse centre (Which I fully intend to do an entire post about, so you guys know what it is and how handy it is to have one of these locally!) I usually end up loving the way that they look so much that I don't sell them which I should be doing, and I end up with oodles of upcycled boxes but they end up being too pretty to get rid of sometimes.
Here are a few examples of previous projects that I've finished up.

I got a Nerf gun at a thrift shop for $5. The gun is finished, but I have some minor things to finish on the shadow box case.

Well hello there my lovely crafty ladies! It's been awhile since I've posted my fused dichroic glass pendants, so I have a few to share. The first one is a customized space pendant set into silver that I made for one of our own dear members.

29th-Apr-2012 03:01 pm - Antique finish question
Tools of the trade
Hey, all---

A lot of the metal in the jewelry that I pick up, as well as the stuff I make, has an antique finish to it. I love the way it looks but it seems to always end up marking my skin. Is there any kind of treatment that I could do to it to keep that from happening, or is it just something I'll have to deal with? I know for rings you can always just put a little clear nail polish on it, but that doesn't really seem viable for things like necklaces. Does anybody know anything that might help? Thanks either way!

13th-Feb-2012 10:59 pm - Modifying Trunk for Vending
I bought this trunk/footlocker last month with the intention of modifying it into immense awesomeness for vending- the goal being to have it end up being both functional (transporting my crap/stuff around) and aesthetically practical (displaying all the crap I've just transported), saving me a ton of time on set up as well as giving my booth a little more of a professional/unifying look.

Trunk. Plus Chim, for scale.
To avoid potential disaster, I've decided to ask you guys for some ideas/suggestions before I actually dive in. Here are some thoughts I currently have, in handy list format:

- My style's rather ooky spooky Halloweeny cartoony- I want to emphasize that
- Inside needs to be painted (paint/technique suggestions encouraged), or otherwise prettied up
- I need to attach a magnet board and something to hang necklaces on to the part on the left
- Need to put in 2 shelves (so 3 sections) on the right part...
- ...and rig displays on each shelf for comics, cards, and stickers+pocket mirrors
- Ideas for rigging lights for nightclub vending welcome as well
- Need to replace the hinges so the damn thing will open all the way
- No plans to do much to the outside- maybe a large sticker with my logo and website- but the outside won't be seen much during display

Any and all suggestions welcome! Thanks!
(I did my best to be as vague as I could re: the stuff I sell, while still including the info I felt was relevant to this project. If there's anything I should edit out, please let me know and I shall do so as soon as I can :)

2nd-Jan-2012 01:13 pm - Sam Plush from Trick R Treat
A friend of mine asked if I could make a plushie of a character from the bad horror movie Trick R Treat. I watched the movie to get a better idea of the character (it was pretty bad) that he wanted plushified, Sam.  Even though the movie was bad I really did like the little Sam character. He was super cute + creepy, right up my alley. My friend wanted not one but two of these, one to keep and one to give as a gift.

Here is a view of one of them from both sides. I really liked that he had a little butt flap. :D

I made these dolls for a Christmas doll giveaway... they're both hand stitched, have vintage button eyes, and yarn hair.
15th-Nov-2011 06:45 pm - Zombie Love
Hi everybody! I haven't been by here in ages so I thought I'd stop by and say hi and share one of my latest dolls with you. I was inspired to make these dolls after watching a scene from The Walking Dead...where a zombie was ripped in half while being pulled from a well. They're both completely hand stitched, 22 inches tall, and made of fabric and fiberfill. I used vintage buttons for their eyes and they have yarn hair.
