Oh oddie, OMG, These are AWESOME!!! You do such wonderful work. And great job on your professional looking photos. I've got tons of bed springs and was needing an idea. Oh, thank you so much for posting these pics!!!
oddie, I just read your member's page and I see your from Ohio too!!! Do you do any craft shows??? I just love your work!!!
oddie - is the basket a picnic basket? I like it!!
Gorgeous crafty stuff.. I was gonna ask about those springs. If they were recycled or hand made...Those little springie fellas are adorable!
Beautiful Oddie, simply beautiful. You certainly have the talent!! P.S. Thanks for posting the other forum site.
Love your snowmen and your basket with the gingermen.How did you make your cinnimonbuns look so real?
Oddie, your work is beautiful, and very creative. Tell me about the little snowman with the lights inside, he looks so cute. Love your baskets too. Thanks for sharing. Luvs
Gosh! never thought I would get such comments, I love to make something from nothing, and the cheaper the better, I will try and answer everyone if I miss you its because Iam not use to such praise and my head is spinding. cheri I live in a small town named portsmouth, where are you from in oh? I tried doing a craft show years ago, didnt do well so never tried agine, tammy no the basket is something I found at the flemarket, its tall with a wooden lid that has a leather handle that can be hung up. terri the springs are recycled and I have the cuts to prove it, what a job it is takeing them apart, ruthinont the cinnamonbuns are saltdough, rolled out sprinkle with cinnamon rolled up and sliced and baked, I use dimenional paint like iceing , makes them look real. luvtocraft the snowman is a clear jug spray painted white, then I spounge white paint over, the eyes are buttons cant remenber what the nose is,theres a hole drilled in the back for the light cord, hubby does the drilling. sal thanks for your comments and thanks to all who has posted you guys sure have given me a big head
All oddie, You deserve it!!! You do such great work!!!
I'm in central Ohio, little town named Raymond.
Can't wait to see more of your creations. Keep them coming!!!
Beautiful. I think you shouldn't give up on shows- maybe the one you did was just not a good one!! Are your gingerbread men also saltdough,or muslin and could you please share your saltdough recipe. Thanks!! S,
hi and thank you for comments,the gingerbread man in this post is wood, hubby made for me, the one in my other post that shows a christmas basket is made of saltdough hes kinda small and hard to see in the photo. I use 1c of salt.1c flour and 1/2 c water, after mixing I put dough in a ziplock bag and let it set out for a couple of days seems to roll out better after setting, I am sure theres a reason why but dont know. you guys have given me the confidence to want to try a craftshow maybe next year!
Oh yes oddie, You need to try another craft show. And let me know where it's going to be, maybe I could come!!! Keep those pics coming!!!
your work is beautiful
I agree, you should find a good show .
I do lots of Christmas shows and from
what I have seen , your crafts are
outstanding, you should sell out if
your prices are competitive.
Ohh my goodness just how cute are all these!! Wonderful work!!
Oddie, these ladies are right--your crafts should sell like hotcakes! So very cute and all the details you've added just make them look so special and "Professional".
Are your stacking snowmen paper mache boxes or are they cans? I couldn't quite tell which they were. What a cute idea.
I can tell you enjoy creating things. I've really enjoyed seeing your projects. Feel like I've been to a little craft show--and you know how we all love that feeling! LOL
Thanks agine for your comments you guys sure dish out the praises, the stacked snowman are wood, my hubby was playing with a log one day and cut each layer you see out of the log each getting smaller, he showed it to me and right away I saw a snowman, Jackie I have wanted to post and tell you I think your work is beauiful! I have alot of other ideas we can all chat about as soon as my head goes back to normal.
thanks agine oddie
I love your work!! All your snowmen are sooooooooooooooooooo adorable.
I just had to log in and say what beautiful things you have made. If I may ask, what is the head of the snowman on the springs made of? Do you sell any of your things?
Please post more of your crafts, I would love to see them.
You should do a show,whit what you make, as someone else said I would think they would sell like hotcakes.
I had to get in here real quick and add my praise. I love everything. Please keep posting!! ~Anj
Fabulous work!! I love those snowmen!!! Fantastic!!!

Oddie, Your crafts are just wondarful! I especially like the bedspring snowmen. I just recently found some bedsprings and was wondaring if you would do a tute on how to make your snowmen?? tfs, Janie

You really need to find shows in your area! You would sell out!

Oddie, Adorable Snowmen! You are indeed very talented. If you would have time to send me an email (SunflowerMom54944@yahoo.com), I have a question for you. Thank you,
Still gorgeous!! you are one very very talented lady!!
Oddie, thanks for the tute! Now, how did you paint their faces and what is the noses made of??? tfs, janie

And PS-- the way you've done the photos is great-- such a feeling of holiday atmosphere!
Thanks!you guys are going to give me a big head agine and will take awhile to come back down!
Cant seem to find any craft shows close to me, I just like to go and look at all the crafty things being made, maybe get some new ideas! we have a craftmall here that sells for crafters,but they want to much to sell your things.
Oddie, I have this site saved in my clippings. So awesome. They need to be in a magazine!!! Keep your creations coming so we can keep drooling!!!
thank you! cheri, nothing special about my crafts, maybe its because I put them out all together? sure dont know, but you crafters here could make any of them, I have seen your projects!
glad you liked mine enough to save.
