Squee! I got mine from Runwithgumby today, and I LOVE IT. It's PURPLE. I LOVE purple! And the buttons must have been annoying to sew on but they look /amazing/. Love it. It's perfect for the beach. And the bracelet matches so well, and matches my button earrings.. squee.



Isn't it purty? Thank you so much! Pibbgirl's is getting sent out Monday, I hope she likes it as much as I like mine.

I was so inspired by the earring holder idea, I made me own. I'm bad with jewelry in that if I can't see it, I forget about it. This will be a great way to remind myself what earrings I have.


That looks awesome! I love the kitty.

3  [Meep! Big pics] Picture Frames and their uses. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Mewf on: June 05, 2005 11:10:12 AM
Hey! This is my first post here, since I jussst got my shiny digital camera yesterday. [Now, to start a knitting blog! *cough*]



Anyways. I made the Earring Holders back in January when I got my ears pierced again. It's just Aida (Cross Stitch Fabric) gluegunned inside two frames painted purple with buttons added for accents. [The long earrings on the second one are for belly dancing. Lips sealed]




Now, the picture frames are more recent. Last weekend, I picked up the frames from the dollar store [$3] and I already had the paint and ribbon! So it was cheap, and cute. The top picture is my rat, Hamnpork, the second is my friends and I making mums and garters for homecoming, and the third is of my dogs, Roxy [Who passed in March] and Bear. [The ticket to the side is for Movin' Out, saw it with my best friend a few weeks ago]



Okay! Now, the mums. I don't know if this is a Southern Thing, or an American thing, so I'm just going to explain it. I was oblivious when I moved from Vancouver to Texas. The day before the big homecoming dance, you wear a mum. It's this big flower and ribbon affair, bedecked with cowbells and squirt guns and candy and all this other godawful noisy things. Mums can vary from VERY big to very small, and are supposed to be made by your date. Or, in my case, your date begs your best friend for help, and your best friend asks YOU for help so we turned it into a party. Okay.



The one on the right is the one I made for my Junior year, and the one on the left is the one from Freshman year, professionally made. (I like mine better! *g*)

[Can you tell I enjoy rambling?  Lips sealed]
