How to tip the ends of coated wire?

So I'm planning several more of my plushie projects. For one of them, I'm using some black-coated copper crafting wire to fashion glasses frames, but I don't want the ends to be sharp and end up digging into the cloth. Is there something I can stick on the tips of the wire to round it off and prevent that? It's 16 gauge wire, if that helps any.

Greeting cards

I did a summer greeting card exchange with another LJ group and realized I hadn't shared here. These were a challenge to make - and I made five!

Brown sugar commercial cardstock
Pink copy paper
Vanilla cardstock and copy paper
Best Birds stamps and dies plus woodgrain background, Stampin Up
Flower border and walnut ink by Martha Stewart
Pink flowers with an old Sizzix die

I regret doing the flower border. The border isn't meant to be standalone, so I trimmed it from the piece of paper that I punched on. Uggghh! I hope the cards were well received!


And there was finally craft time! Made a bunch of cards for a community card exchange.

I am English and a polymer clay crafter and I am looking to find these things in the pictures below, I read they were wire clips of some kind but I do not know.I have been looking for months for these. Can anyone please help?

The Walking Dead Mini Art Dolls

First post here. ~waves~

My main crafty fun times come from making little armatured art dolls. Last month I decided to make a few characters from The Walking Dead. After the new season's traumatic first episode, I used them to recreate some of the scenes as therapy and to avoid stress-eating (TWD fans may understand the need for therapy, aha).

They are 8inches (20cm) tall, and completely poseable. Unfortunately because of their size, I can't give them individual fingers to hold things, so they have to sort of cradle them (like Negan is holding Lucille below).  They are super cute clinging on to your finger though. :D

I love making things with armatures, because it gives them a level of interaction that (to me) makes them so much more fun and dynamic than static dolls. When they were in progress, I amused myself making them hold my scissors, rulers, etc on my sewing table.

Teal Tribal Print

I LOVE THIS DRESS!  I have added it to my typical week wardrobe for work!  This is seriously the first time I have been able to line up prints correctly AND not have any puckering in the sleeves! If you click on the picture below, you can see more about this dress.



Ok I lied, I was soo excited, here is another

My First Post!

Hello Live Journal! I am here! And for my first post I want to tell you a little bit about me. I own a small farm on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere USA. We raise Jacob Sheep, Toulouse Geese, Muscovy Ducks, Guinea Fowl, Chickens, have four spoiled rotten horses, and a bunch or vile dogs and annoying cats. I love anything to do with yarn, knitting, sheep, wool, all of that! I also make jewellery, paint, draw, write, crochet, build things, read non fiction mostly, but love sci-fi ! And just science in general, history, art, literature, language, music, and animals. And I talk too much! Here's a gratuitous sheep photo! Nice to meet you all!

The only time all weekend long I have my phone with me outside, yes it is DARK! Sorry for no #farmspamfriday #supersheepiesaturday #hadtoflash #guineassoundlikecaralarms #guineafowlgonecrazytonight We were outside because All of the guineas were making a ruckus, it was like every alarm on everything was going off. We couldn't find any predators, no one else was scared so... Back in the house after a late night stroll around the fields😛🙄😒🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥🐥 #farmwork247 #tiredsotired #noisybirds

Floral Maxi Dress

Big Shot Magnetic Platform

x-posted to nacramamo

I bought the magnetic platform for my Big Shot - both Sizzix products. It seems like wafer thin metal dies are all the rage and I had not seen it for sale at Michaels, so I ordered it from Stampin' Up. What a game changer! I could only dream of positioning things so neatly and using up all my paper years ago :-) It does say, however, to not use the product if you have a pacemaker. The die set pictured is called Pretty Pines and I die cut loads of little embellishments from silver and gold metallic paper for Christmas cards.



I did this last year and it was a lot of fun!

October, which starts a week from tomorrow on my side of the world, is National Craft Making Month! Craft every day for the month of October!

I've been crafting semi-regularly, but less than I'd like (as always, it seems!). NaCraMaMo always seems good for kicking off regular crafting again, especially as we go into the Gift-Giving season.

Who's going to join me in the NaCraMaMo challenge?
