awesome journal...i love the hippos not to be rediculous or anything but i also love your workspace, the tabletop is brilliant...is that something you made or purchased... would you mind sharing where you came up with it?
Of course! It's really not that exciting. We have a big ol' dining table that doesn't fit in our kitchen, so we have it set up in the extra bedroom. My aunt just updated all her sewing supplies and had this big, folding cardboard mat with the grid on it that she gave to me. It's not durable to use a rotary cutter on, of course, but it's nice to have anyway and protects the table top. I'm glad you like it.
This is my first time posting in this section of the site, and I feel a bit like a new kid wandering into the wrong turf. If I do something wrong, please don't shank me.
A friend gave me this little booklet thingy she made me for my wedding. It's really nice; smallish, hand-bound, torn paper, sturdy cover. Lays flat when you open it which is something I'm super picky about. The cover was just plain paper with mine and my husband's name on it. I had already bought a journal to chronicle "our" story and so I decided to claim this one as my own journal.
I painted the outside covers white and spray-adhesived some lace and scrapbook paper cutouts onto the front and added a cutesie version of my name to make it all personalized. I think it turned out pretty cute.
this is a painting i did several years ago. granted it's a little dated in my gallery now, but it's been my most successful piece thus far (won several awards and hung in a public gallery), so i decided to share it.
less talk, more arting!
it's acrylic on masonite, titled "whimsical". it's based on the festival nocturne by debussy, but mostly it's meant to just add color and brighten up a room.
no way! um..i don't know if you'd remember me, or even knew me, but we were in byu 80th ward together last year. my name's kayla casper. anyway, it's nice to see you!
and now that i gave my name on a public website, lol, i shall comment on the beautifulness that is your skirt. hooray for one hour projects! mine rarely turn out that quickly. i love your fabric, i made a dress several months ago out of some fabric that looks similar.
those new look patterns are tricky, they always run big for me too. i've used this pattern several times and finally figured out i need to cut two sizes smaller instead of one...and it's still gapey under the arms. *shrug*
but it's SO cute though, isn't it?? you've made it fit yourself beautifully. i'll have to try the dart-under-the-arms thing, because apparently it works. can't wait to see more.
