For when I go back to school but a little shorter..... I really like the shirt underneath idea (i'm talking about on the first page, not the third page) but I just can't figure out what type of skirt to attach (so it'll be a mini dress). I'm probably going to wear some jeans or leggings under it... So far I've come up w/ a tulle skirt (not too sure about this one, seems to "dress-up" to me) or a short circle skirt. I really want it to be casual and I am FREAKING OUT because I have to get this done by like 3pm (it's 3:45 am right now...yikes!)
What type of skirt should I make? (Pics if possible, please)
Well, I want to make a dress for when I go back to school on Sep. 2nd, but I have no idea what kind. I'm might hand sew it but I'm probably going to end up using the sewing machine with my mom. Anyway, does anyone know any nice & simple casual dresses I could wear back to school that'll go w/ a nice scarf? If you do, please link pics/patterns!!! Any written ideas are great also!
I'm "petite" to some people I guess (I'm 5'0) & *cough*sorta flatchested (32 a)*cough* so no "busty" stuff please! :DBut I'm ok w/ short...here are my measurements: Waist: 25 Bust: 30 Hip 33 1/2
Ok, so at my school, we're doing this Humanities Night thing where you dress up as a Japanese, Indian (the continent), or Chinese--the ethnicities we've studied this year, or dress up according to your cultural background.
Wellll, I'm in a jam... I am 58% Native American, and the rest African American (mostly) and Creole and general caucasian (I'm thinkin french 'cause I keep finding red hairs!!)...and I HAVE TO GET A COSTUME!!!! I really want to represent the my native american side (since it's on both my mom and dad's side) and I want to make my own costume.
Now, let's talk about the prob: As much as I research, I cannot find pics of Blackfoot, Choctaw, or Cherokee outfits for me, a petite female standing 5'0!!! Could someone possibly help me out with this??? How could I pull it off to make it cute and not stereotypical??
Ok, so today I'm going to Michaels to pick up some Sculpey...or some other [polymer] clay ... Well, I have never worked w/ Polymer clay before so I have to quick questions:
-What type of clay is easy to work with & air drys??? -If I can't find any air dry clay, is it safe to bake it in my oven? How would I go along doing that???
You don't really have to answer both my questions, it's just that I need to answer #1 really quick because I need to get started on my project!
**In case you're wondering, my project is making something like this:
**sorry 4 the huuuuge pic, i havent quite found out how to resize images.....**
------EDIT--------- Excuse my slowness, I mean an air dry clay... I just found out polymer clay doesn't air dry....sorry! Oh yeah, please don't recommend Crayola Air Dry Clay because that stuff is a pain to work with! thanks!
Ok, soooo I have this project on The Kongo Empire (not present-day Kongo) and 1 of my project partners (lol, not the one i've been fussing about on my blog) asked me to cook something that they ate.....well, the problem is, they ate stuff like cassava, which i cannot make and don't have the ingredients for.
Well, I DO have ingredients to make Oreo balls but I don't know how that can relate to The Kongo Empire.... We have to have something else besides a poster, and since we xouldn't find anything else, it has to be this....
Well, enough of my rambling... Does ANYONE know how I can relate Oreo balls w/ the Kongo Empire??? Should I try to "jazz them up"?
Has anyone ever heard of this or have a recipe of this? Ok, I know I never heard of it either, but I was just thinking, it must taste REALLY good! So, I decided to take my "dilemma" to you very crafty ladies (and gentlemen!) thinking you heard of it... Anyway, if you have a recipe please post it! I really think this would be fun to make sometime... lol, stay tuned if you don't know a recipe anyway, 'cause i'm making me a pepperoni lasagna!!!!
Well, my friend's mom died of breast cancer last week and I really want to make something for her (I prefer making something rather than buying something since I have lots of materials around the house). I don't specifically want to make anything tributing her mom, I just want to make her a regular bunch of gifts w/ a few things that have to do with her mom. I am thinking about making like a basket or bag (something along that line) of gifts... She is 14, into hip-hop & r&b, wants to be a model, likes candy, magazines, fashion, posters, etc. She's pretty much a regular teenage girl and I'm a total tomboy/girly girl opposite!! *But, we do share the same love in Hip-Hop, Gospel & R&B since she and I sing and we were raised around A LOT of music. Although I don't have enough money to spare (I didn't get paid yet!! yikes!!), I still want to get my buddy something nice because she was there when my granny died, and she continues to be there for me & believing I can achieve my dreams of becoming an actress & she & my other friend make school a little more fun (lol, laughing with teachers, Facebook 24/7, the usual...). So if you guys have any ideas, please share 'coz I'm totally spaced!!!
Hi, I have a bunch of little water bottles and water bottle caps and I wanna melt them into various stuff like jewely, decor, etc. Does anyone know how i get started melting plastic??? **Ps- I know that it is dangerous to freeze and/or melt plastic and i will not come in contact with it (I have a face mask thing and gloves....)**
