    Haha, yeah, it's $50 to Australia. I just make the most of it and always order over $50 worth of tea when I'm shopping there. (That's easy to do, oh my god, some of those fandom blends.)

    Just wish I had the money to spare now, but budget was sort of blown on my trip <.<

    Hey Faerah, If you're having trouble keeping the lines straight on a bendy surface, and the glass is clear, you can always draw your design on paper and then put the paper inside the glass and trace it on the outside. I'm not sure if you're already doing that but it might help a teensy bit if that's what made the flower wonky. That and you can practice a lot of designs before committing to one. Hope that helps, and everything is looking so lovely.

    I might show some knitting or something later, I haven't been too particularly crafty at the moment.

    Inherited some small glass beads from my grandma (seemed like a shame to throw them away!) So now there will be some crafting going on over here, see if I can reach my grandmother's skills. Already made the necklace-y thing on top there, in black, white and blue. Here are some sample work of hers that followed with the beads:

    Door decorations



    Bells


    Candle decorations


    Easter chickens and eggs


    She also made dresses for dolls, decorative trees, necklaces, earrings, Christmas tree decorations and much more.

    those tiles decay or something right? I realize at some point I had a bunch but now I have none, it was a big fad for a while. very cool times.

    If you put them in your deck they don't decay. They only do that if you pull them out into your hand.

    And I'll put some varnish on these to make them last longer! :smiley:

    Procrastinated some more and made a new box! This one has a lid that can be used as a game board.

    So, apparently spring is the time when I get creative. A few years ago, I bought a dress for myself when I was in the UK. I loved it and have never found anything like it since. So I decided to make myself a replica, or sorts. I bought fabric just the other day and today, I had some time to spare to cut and sew it together. Here's the result!




    I added a belt and felt quite pleased with it

    I have yet to make the things, but I am making a set of christmas ornaments for my tree this year. I fell in love with a set at K-Mart, of woodland critters and various woodsy things and that is what I'm going to attempt. Pics will come!

    Christmas Ornaments: Round 1! Two foxes, two hedgepigs. The two bunnies and two owls are cooling in the oven. There might be other ornaments made. I have ideas but no solid plans yet.

    Edit to add: This is first painting of this set. I have fusses to do on them and a shiny clearcoat to add.

    Sorry for the multiple posts!

    All 8 need to dry before sealing now.

    ok so not really the best and its not -quite- finished yet, but yes this is a hand made leather belt and custom made holsters that I did....don't be harsh -_- but I am working on slowly building a collection and -maybe- selling them
    I am not a morning inside four walls. I am the hurricane setting fire to the forests at night when no one else is alive or awake. I live in my own flames sometimes burning too bright -too wild to make things last and so I run. Far and wide until my bones ache and lungs burn..and it feels good.
    Do you hear that?
    It feels good, it feels good because I am both the slave and the ruler of my own body and I wish to do with it exactly as I please

    Nice. If handguns weren't so hard to get here (and getting past the wife) I'd get one from you to make it around my large waist, heh.

    Thats why you go with something older, they still serve the same purpose, those are 1851 navy colts short barreled in the holster, it is black powder cap and ball, so they can actually be bought without having permits because they are considered antique. However, they still function regardless of modern production they are still labeled as antique which is pretty cool imo. Mine were bought online for about 75 each and concurrent serial numbers too.

    While I don't approve of gun possession, I do approve of craftiness. I like the leatherwork!
