Default Off Topic: Any "crafty" people out there?

I always like to hear about other crafters crafts. I myself love to crochet, sew, scrapbook, and paint. I was just wondering if there were any other crafters on this board. If there are, Id love to see some pics of your favorite projects, and to share some of mine. Amy Jo

pics of my stuff??? i'm not that organized!!!! right now, i'm knitting up a storm [keeps me from eating!] and i also love making pins out of rubber stamps. and i'm starting to buy beading magazines [because i need something else to do????? ack!!!!] - the combination of yarn and beads is almost irresistable.

i've also done pottery and sculpting in the past, but i don't have time or space for that these days.

needlepoint. embroidery. lace making. counted cross stitch. and work SO interferes with all this stuff...

hope others come around and fess up!!!!

ooooh Jiffy I love beading, too, but I don't really have the time for it anymore. I know how to crossstitch, but I never relly enjoyed it. This fall, I've been crocheting poncos galore! I've sold about 10 of them, so I guess it's worth the time I put into it!

Heres a couple of ponchos I've made for my daughter

I love to craft! I do all kinds... I make homemade cards, match book,gum wrappers, pop cans/bottls, you name it I put the party theme on it. I haven't done this for pay just for family parties. About a year ago I tried balloon figures. Now I force ( ) myself on family at parties I also face paint. We have lots of little ones. We had a baby shower for my daughter yesterday and I make a stuffed balloon with a teddybear and Sleeper. I would love to learn to knit or crocheting things. I did buy a book on knitting I didn't understand some of the directions so I haven't tried that in awhile. I have made a few bead rings and such nothing really fancy. I hop around with crafts I try a bit of everything. So many crafts sooooo little time. I'll post some pictures when I get them back.

I love those ponchos! Such a cutie for a model!!

I dont have any pictures either of my crafts, if you count my candles. I do candles, soap, crochet, (would love to learn to knit) Cross stitch. My mom says that I am one of those people that can learn to do just about any craft! I love crafts,.. so christmas is my fave time of year.

I like to think I am "crafty", but I don't know if what I do counts.. I just wrap pretty damn beautifully (if I do say so myself). Also, I give elaborate presents. For example for my boyfriends co-worker and her husband, I am making them a gift basket, filled with totally "them" presents. I have sold gift baskets in the past, but have moved and haven't bothered to persue that. I used to bead, and sell those too, good money, when I was younger I used to sell necklaces for 45 bucks a pop. And I don't have pictures either

How cute! Love those ponchos.

Just had to look at this thread to see what all you crafty people do. I have a major lack of crafting ability. Nonncrafters, Unite!

Adorable ponchos (and even moreso the daughter)!

I used to be the cross-stitch queen who was called on to make elaborate creations for hanging in baby rooms. Many of those creations still adorn the walls of bedrooms occupied by teenagers now. Another one of my crazes was ceramics - everything from delicate christmas ornaments to bavarian style beer steins. I've pretty much given up my Martha Stewart ways now, although I make seasonal wreaths from time to time. I never really considered myself much of a crafter, as for being crafty...?

I sew (have a 4 yr quilt 'still' in progress!!), make all sorts of things from wood and do some painting. I love to make funky little things for our home...but it is so hard to find the time lately.
