Ugh life got in the way of me posting my amazing package from smmarrt.... i was spoiled like crazy

Next the book cover... pretty nifty map covering it, i found it cute that my location was on the front and hers was on the back (not sure if it was done on purpose but i thought it was neat)

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The 10pound key corset that almost was... on: May 05, 2012 10:00:20 AM
Yes this is an almost was post. I ended up ripping the grommets out of the side while trying to lace it up so i have to figure out a way to fix it before it can be worn. i was to excited about this not to post it anyway.
I was attempting to make an underbust corset kind of like the vest the Russian wears in the movie "the darkest hour". I waited months to watch this movie and as soon as i saw it (about halfway through the movie) i ended up missing the rest of the movie trying to figure out how to construct it.

anyway enough yammering... its got a duct tape base that was wrapped around my body then cut off. I then spray glued fabric onto the outside (all i had was white duct tape and i wanted a black background). I then hot glued and stitched a little over 200 keys to the base.  it was probably the first time anyone in history has muttered "if i don't have enough keys i'm entirely too fat" but i didn't have enough keys anyway,,, i was off by 5-10.

on to the pictures:




Im going to try to fix it eventually. right now though its going in the WIP drawer because my fingers are raw from stitching through 3 layers of duct tape  Roll Eyes

To the swapper... I went through the same sort of thing 3 years ago, I used my journaling to deal with the unasked questions and grief ...3 years later i realize its exactly what i needed to get through a life-altering event. Your in my thoughts. Hope things clear up for ya Smiley

on the journal front:
 Roll Eyes I told my best friend about this swap so now shes forcing me to do things off my bucketlist, and things/places ive never done just  so i have neat stuff to talk about.... 5 days in and Ive already crossed off 4 things. This month may kill me lol .
Im trying to do a lil visual a lil diary and a lil bit random awesomeness that somehow always ends up in my days and journals.

I received from la chapa today! she chose my cupcake theme and i'm so in love with it!
on to the awesome piece:


I hope that worked, I haven't posted a photo in forever!
but isnt it awesome? I love the little bead sprinkles Smiley  I think I will be using it as a magnet in the kitchen, most of my cupcake themed stuff makes it in there anyway.
