i haven't posted anything crafty in soo soo long....

here's a bunch, warning! LOTS OF PICTURES!

first, some flower pins that i did for a swap on craftster.....

this one's my favourite, though i'm also in love with the daisy with the acrylic centre. and the fun fur one is cool!

more flower pins, all crocheted, but not for the swap.

the green one's my favourite.

speaking of crocheting... i did this at (canadian) thanksgiving, so you can tell how long it's been since i've posted pictures! i was really happy with this. he doesn't like being too girly, and i usually suck at toning the girliness down, but this worked out well.

he wanted brown. this is kinda more the true colour.

some kippot that i've been making.... there's more, but they really aren't that exciting. they're really quick and easy to do, and my best friend wear's them every day, so he's always looking for variety. i've perfected my pattern for cloth ones, so i'll start on those next. the brown one is made using regular acrylis yarn and crochet cotton together, and i'm really liking the effect. i tried it out to find a way to use up all the crochet cotton i never use. i'm in the middle of a scarf with varigated rainbow cotton and black acrylic, it's really cute.

slightly boring lanyards i made for everyone at work, but i love the silvery snowflakes on the fabric!

and the cards i made everyone, with fun foam snowflakes, glittery cardstock and beads.

this isn't new, i made it a few years ago, when i was tinier, but i finally remembered to make someone wear it for pictures. i love it so much. it's a deconstructed giant sweatshirt that's now much less giant.

and, last but not least, postcards for the What Would the Mail Carrier Think? Postcard Swap with the theme of feminism/women. i used images from the '20s, b&w copied, then added colour and glitter. i've added clear contact paper as well, to keep all the glitter from leaving a trail in post offices throughout the world! but i took the picture before i added it, to cut down on glare.

i LOVE this image, but i didn't copy enough of it. i didn't even realize that the chorus line was all wearing wings until i started colouring them!

and if you like the idea of a postcard swap, check out the postcard swap i'm currently organizing on craftster- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22408.0 if you've been a craftster member for more than a month, and you're not a "bad swapper", you're welcome to join!

it's valentine themed! i'm super excited!

as far as i can tell, i'm not breaking any community rules by posting that. i'll take it out if needed though. i'm just really excited.

and that's it for now. i have more, but there are already a million pictures on here. and i'm in the middle of multiple projects, including some stuff for upcoming swaps, a purse made using an image transfer marker to make it look really cool, and lovely resin valentines stuff!
