1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: DDs dress and matching hair (added pictures of the different colors shes had) on: January 28, 2012 12:32:06 PM
You have the luckiest daughter in the world! I wish I'd been allowed to do all sorts of fun things with my hair when I was in school. The craziest I can do now is 'dark auburn'...stupid work. I love the dress and matching hair she has now. She's beautiful!

That is awesome! I have such a horrible time taking good pictures of the things I make. I never would have thought to do anything like this. Thanks so much for posting this! Smiley
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Not so old Law Books. on: April 27, 2011 03:57:45 PM
My dad recently left private practice and gave me a set of Florida Statutes that were out of date. They are 7.5 X 10 inches and 2.5 inches thick. Just think stereotypical law books. I'd like to build something out of them but I'm really not sure what, my creativity has been running dry lately. Any ideas are welcome! Thanks!   Cheesy
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first embroidery attempts. on: March 24, 2011 06:14:21 PM
None of these are my own design. I'm still searching for links to them, I'll post them once I find them!



My first embroidery.



This is more true to color but the other shows the stitches better, which I'm proud of.
PS: I did this one while watchin my guy play Dead Space... I have no idea how it turned out so bright and cheery. Tongue



This one I tried to do mixed media, I'm not overly proud of her though. I'm thinking about attempting her again.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / My mother's a hobbit and needed somewhere to sleep. (5 biggish pics) on: June 25, 2010 04:39:14 PM
My dad, myself and brother are all nerds.  My mom somehow resisted for 25 years until she had surgery last summer and was in bed for a month or so.  We somehow convinced her to read the Lord of the Rings triology, when she was done she said she was a hobbit

So as a late mothers day gift I made her a hobbit hole.  Its just regular clay that is supposed to be kiln dried but I have no access to one so its thouroughly air dried.


The flowers are actually dmc floss dipped in tacky glue and stuck on after the paint was dried.



This is more true to color and shows the detail of the painting better.


On the right is my mothers wood pile for those cool summer nights.  The wood shed is made out of toothpicks and the logs are tubes of clay.


On the left are her watermelons. And yes, they are average sized watermelons, thats why they are almost as big as the door. Smiley  The fence to keep the pesky dwarves out is made of toothpicks and hemp rope and was a PAIN.



And here is my poor neglected daughter waiting for me to finish so she can come out of her pen and play.

Love it! When I saw it on the home page I thought it was store bought and was going to be reconned.  Its looks amazing and just like the one on the website.  Grin
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: 21st birthday dress! (3pics) on: March 24, 2010 06:59:05 PM
always- no pattern, I just stared at various pictures of the herve dress until thats all I saw when I closed my eyes.  Cheesy

pinkweeds- the polo is pretty stretchy so I brought in the part around my ribcage to be about 1 or 2 inches smaller than it should be so the girls are just kinda resting there. the cup parts are heavily lined also so that may help too.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 21st birthday dress! (3pics) on: March 24, 2010 04:36:18 PM
Well its technically inspired by those Herve Leger bandage dresses, but its a recon so its going here.

Another story....

My bf understands that as a woman I have days that I do not like myself.  And to fix this he has always given me pep talks, these talks often include him comparing me to Athena/Kim K and calling me his future wife.  Grin The comparison to Kim K comes about because I just really like her and he knows this.  Well I'm turning 21 and haven't quite reached the goals I wanted to by this point in my life, and became somewhat depressed for a couple days.  After a pep talk from my bf I made this...




-ignore the vpl and awkward pose.


-ignore the lining seam, its from the flash of my cam.


Its my Kim K inspired 21st birthday dress!

I so so so lucked out at finding the fabric I did.  It was originally a 3xl polo shirt that I found at goodwill, luckily with no stains.  Just think BIG, I didn't get a before pic.  I totally winged the dress and could not be happier with it.  Its basically a very high waisted pencil skirt with two right triangles on top, and then darted where needed.

Definitely needs ironing and one last wash to be sure I'll be able to breath in it.
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: laminate samples? what do i make? on: March 13, 2010 06:07:31 PM
Had a bunch of those a few years ago and made little notepads with some, and with the others I made a couple little boxes just using hot glue and covering the seams with pretty ribbon.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Lots o' jewelry on: February 20, 2010 03:56:02 PM
Oh I like the ring. What part did you soulder? The wire to the ring?

I souldered the end of the swirl to itself to keep it from catching on something and and unraveling.  And then the swirl to the band.  Its a horrible soulder job but you can't see it when worn so I'm okay with it.  Cheesy
