If I may make a post here?

It's been a long time, and I've never done well with deadlines.  I miss this forum. There was some pretty neat stuff posted here last year, and that's about when Real Life got in the way for me.

I bought fabric for a challenge I'd hoped to propose here, before the Real Life stuff hit the fan.  I just got around to cutting and making it, and I posted it in very verbose fashion in craftgrrl and sew_hip.  I'll leave only two pictures of the "Unbearable" sewing machine tote. (The challenge I'd hoped to propose was to make something blinding. She who can still see wins. I don't think I won on that count...)

I guess this falls under Crafty Challenge #3: A case for whatever.

Crafty Challenge 4 - Call for entries!

Hi everyone! It's time to post your entries for challenge 4:  Mirror, Mirrior on the Wall and  If You Took the 'r' Outta Shirt, it'd Say... I hope you all had fun with these challenges. And hopefully we can get a few posts up. I'd love to see what you all came up with. I myself, still gotta take pics of the shirt a recon'd. (I barely bought some new batteries for the cam today.) And I should have a new poll up by the end of the night. Thanks!  

Crafty Challenge 4!

 Okay, so here are the results of the poll:

Crafty Challenge 4a: Mirror, Mirrior on the Wall - Craft your own mirror! (i.e. deocrate a mirror how you see fit. It can be a compact mirror, hand held, cabinet mirror, full length, rear view, whatever!)

Crafty Challenge 4b: If You Took the 'r' Outta Shirt, it'd Say... - Well, you know! Now's the time to reconstruct that awesome shirt you bought last year that just doesn't seem to fit right anymore! Reconstruct a shirt how ever you see fit.

Your entries will be due May 1st. That gives you about a week and some days. Hopefully that sounds okay. Also, I agree with Petatrons comment about there being around 60 members, and no one's really posting things. Maybe because the community has been so slow? I know that was the reason why I wasn't participating in any of the challenges. I'm trying to change that though! If anyone knows any members who haven't checked the comm. in awhile, do let them know we got the ball up and rolling again! 

Thanks, can't wait to see everyone's entries =)

challenge 3b: Monster Mash!


felix, brice (brice is actually a cat, not a monster, however he's in this photo) and gerald.


they did the mash!Collapse )



so where is everyone else? theres about 60 members in this community and no one is posting anything? i want to see everyones challenge entries :D
Alrighty, so here's the new poll. I know we're behind on things, and I'm not quite sure how amphigori had the scheduling down on when the polls end when to start up new ones and all that. To make things a bit easier and to not get so behind on things, I think the poll when end Monday, and I'll announce the two challenges, as voted by you guys. And then the challenge entries will be due on May 1st. Does this all sound okay? On to the poll:

Crafty Challenge 3 - Call for entries!

 Okay, so we're a little late. Sorry about that. But you guys can now start posting up your entries for Craft Challenge #3! Just in Case and Monster Mash. I know this comm. has been kinda of slow, but hopefully we get a couple entries! If not, be sure to vote in the next poll (which will be up, right after I get done with this post) and hopefully we can get the ball rolling again. Thanks everyone!


MOD NOTE!

 Hey everyone. I've noticed that the site hasn't been updated in quite awhile. There's no new poll up for the next challenge. There also isn't a post up calling for the crafty entries for this weeks challenge.  I'm not sure what happened to amphigori, who is the orginator of this community and the one who usually makes the posts/polls. Perhaps she's just busy. Just hope everything is okay.

Anywho, so I would like to see this community keep going. Hopefully you guys do too! I'd love to see what your creative, crafty brains can come up with for future challenges! So, until I'm able to get in contact with amphigori, I'll handle some of the posts for now. And should anyone have any questions, comments, sugesstions, and/or suggestions for future challenges, feel free to ask!

Thanks =)

Challenge 2b: In the bag

My first bag! I used this tutorial and, even though I didn't quite understand how it would all magically come together when I pulled it right-side out I went with it, and was so surprised and excited when I did pull it right-side out and it did magically come together that I literally jumped out of my chair and did a happy dance right there in the kitchen. Complete with chanting. Lol!

Eeee!Collapse )

Sewing is so much more instantly gratifying than crocheting!
