Finally got around to getting some lights above the kitchen table. I'm so in love with these old school raw bulbs and textile cords. I do have material for three more, if I wanna add some... I also put up some paintings on the wall, not on this pic though.

Oh wow! That is something! Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid of balloons.... :rolleyes: I bet you get a lot of requests for parties! That diaper cake would have come in handy last week when my sister had her third baby girl. I've never seen one here in Sweden. Keep it up!

@Zab Wow. Just... wow.
Love the manga stuff. (Seriously, I LOVE the ones you posted. So cool.)

Me... I mess around with very fine thread and pearls.
Currently (well, up until a while ago, until all the house stuff was taking off) I'm working on a brow band for Oz.

Not a very good pic of it, but that's where it's going atm. Nearly done.

I did a dreamcatcher on a horseshoe last year for a fellow Secret Santa'er. :)

And I used to do a lot of cross stitch.

This one is actually hanging on my wall.
Probably about 20 years old. :)

Those perls... looks lika a long snake, very cool! And the cross stitching, awesome! I've tried it too but maybe it's not my thing, I can't seem to finish anything.... I have a crochet project with skulls that sits in corner, giving me the stinkeye, begging to be finished! Keep up the good work!

Thank you. :)
It's not difficult -- just very time consuming. Stringing the pearls is the worst part, as every single turn of a thread requires one pearl.

So my lil bro made these wooden boxes for me and I put christmas deco in them. I love amaryllis flowers and I know they're poison for the kids, but I had to make one anyway. I just have to put it in the guest room window and keep the door shut. Then I've bought some plastic trees to keep around the house with lights. I usually hate plastic plants, but what do you do? ;)
In Sweden everything about christmas is so "moderate" and rustic, so I just had to have a tree out front with red lights. My neighbours are gonna hate me.... but hey, it's fun!

My dear friend who owns two deveon rex cats gave me this picture she wanted me to remake on a big scale. Don't know where the pic came from originally but I tried to make it for her. Here it is:

So, I'd like to see what you creative people do, so please share!
I'll start with shrinky dinks of Simon's cat... easy to make and so much fun. I finished these off with a pin so you can wear them on your jacket or bag.

Hiya well I like to do needle punch and latch hook , I love to crochet as well
I crochet dolls and give them to the local charity to raffle off
The only thing I haven’t tried is card making ! I used to make the Reborn Dolls ( that look like real babies ) I had all my pictures on a laptop didn’t back them up and lost them when the laptop broke :mad::mad: I only have pictures of the last one I made , I had to stop because you have to bake them in the oven to seal the paint . Was getting really good but I have COPD. and it really affected my chest when they were in the oven
Xxxx❤❤❤
