12  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craft-Esteem? on: November 21, 2008 08:40:26 AM
Do you guys ever make something, or come up with a great idea for a gift to craft, and then anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 days later decide that that is the worst idea you've ever had?
Or is it just me?

Fiddler's Green
The Mahones

And anyone else I'm leaving out!  Yeah, I realize some of these bands aren't punk, such as Great Big Sea or the Tossers, but they're still great!

Anyone in?
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Friend From Far Away Comes To See Twilight? on: November 13, 2008 09:05:56 PM
So i have this AMAZING friend from church camp.  And we haven't seen each other since his homecoming.  So this is the first time he is coming to visit me in my native surroundings.  And we've both read the first three Twilight books and love to complain at how everyone is obsessed with them.
Enough back story
[img]http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/JACOB--BELLA-AND-EDWARD-twilight-series-654681_480_384.jpg/[img]
I want to make him something small, and possibly Twilight themed.  He means the world to me and he is the Jacob to my Bella, if you know what I mean...
So any ideas?   Just a...something...he can keep near him and see it and think of me.

Thanks guys!
16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Cardboard-Dumpster Art Swap(Now with Added Suggestions!) on: November 11, 2008 11:05:30 AM
Inspired by my friend, Mitch, who is on craftster somewhere...

(He made the one on the left, and I the one on the right)
He said to me, "Laura, art is what you want it to be."  And then I fell in love with it
Cardboard art is easy, and requires little talent.  Just spraypaint, stencils, and whatever you want to use.

Partners could give each other some colors, themes, or concepts to work with, then after a month, we mail off our pieces!  Its so easy to make cardboard art, even I can do it!
The recommended size is a manila envelope, but some of the bases of the pieces may not fit in that.  Hey, we're crafters, ingenuity is what we're all about, right?
Suggested bases:
              Cardboard, old book covers, old vinyl records or CDs, brown paper bags, t shirts stretched over cardboard or a frame, fabric not stretched at all.
Pretty much just stuff no one wants that would be thrown away

You can too!

So is anyone up for the challenge?
 
17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Just One Photo...For Matty on: October 08, 2008 09:12:13 PM
I love photography.  And while anyone can take a picture of a flower, I'm really impressed at how well the the focus and such turned out...  The original is big enough to be the background on my weird sized monitor.


The little one links you to the full size, I think.
18  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Irish Barmaid Help? on: October 03, 2008 01:01:24 PM
So due to my new found love of Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and the Tossers, i've decided to make an Irish themed costume.  Ive seen step dancer costumes like this, and barmaid costumes like this, and to me, the only difference seems to be ghillies or no ghillies. So I've decided to go for something kinda like this

(Jessica Simpson style....my skirt would be longer!)
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedishrag/images/jessicasim_caulf_7010682_600.jpg
http://www.renstore.com/Articles/Trimming/Trim-13.jpg
ok, getting the idea?
I'm going to alter the Elizabethan corset pattern(from the pattern generator).  The problem is the shirt under the corset!  Is there any free pattern(coz im too poor to but the one on Burda Style) for this?
or could i take like an old guys collared shirt, chop it, and cinch everything up?
     Am i making any sense at all?  Sorry if I'm not.
Also, for the skirt, full circle, half circle, tiered, cute like the Jessica Simpson one?  I'm going for about knee length.

And also, what shoes?
sorry for the lengthy-ness.  Thanks so much, you guys!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I Want An Opinoin About Ironing So... on: September 22, 2008 12:41:29 PM
...I'm coming to you.
I got my homecoming dress second hand.  Today I was trying it on, and my mom commented that it looks wrinkled.  I agreed, but figured I should ask you guys first.
Its all polyester fabrics, so I cant see why a low heat iron would hurt...
its a fake silk layer under a sheer organza like layer...

Any reason why not to iron it?
