OK, so I decided to paint my lamp while watching Knocked Up on my computer last night. Sooo funny. Anyway. My dorm room is just so terrifyingly prison-like that I have to keep sprucing. Let me know what you think, Arielle
And here is me trying to show you how when the light is on it looks cool because it turns my brown/turquoise paint into a silhouette. I just look like an old lady. Scary.
My room is cinder blocky and smells weird and I just had to do SOMETHING to break up the space. oh dear. Anyway here is my mobile made out of textiles. the shapes are stars, circles, moons, and a weird spiraly guy. enjoy them
This started as a men's XXXL button down from the thrift. It all turned out really well because now I can wear really low-rise jeans and not have to worry about it because the shirt is so long haha . Anyway, enjoy

This shirt was covered in stains and was just not OK anymore. So...textile scraps became my bff and here is my flower/sun/awkwardly framing my boobs shirt. I just love these Gap cotton tees and could never ever throw one away. THIS is the solution. enjoy,
Johnny Depp is sort of my life. So I just made this guy (not freehand...printed out a photo and made up the shadows) out of a manila folder with my X-acto knife. Notice the little blotch of paint under one of his scissorfingers... That was there before and I put the stencil on this shirt to make it blend in. How frugal of me.
P.S.... SO sorry about me being a major creeper in the background, but I love photobooth so I can just hold up my drying shirt. Yay!
So the first one is just fun because it's this great random nautical fabric.
The other one was pretty fun to make, but of course I measured myself wrong and had to insert a charcoal thing in the back to make it fit because I didn't want to buy more fabric, but I think it looks pretty cool with the waistband of the same cheapo quilting fabric. Thanks!
