1  Sparkly Jewelry Dish in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by classy broad on: January 06, 2015 08:31:43 AM
I haven't posted in forever! I've made a few things here and there, but have definitely been in a major creative rut. Luckily, I've been feeling really inspired lately, and one of my goals for the new year is to be more crafty.
Yesterday I whipped up a simple jewelry dish, using things I already had in my supply stash -- small white plate, mod podge & glitter. I finished the whole thing off with a few coats of clear acrylic.
First completed project of 2015!

2  pretty bird for my mama. in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by classy broad on: July 22, 2011 12:46:30 PM
my mom absolutely loves hummingbirds -- we even each have a tattoo of one. she lives in pennsylvania, and they are one of the things she loves most about visiting california.
i stitched this up on a scrap of pretty fabric -- the L is for Lisa, which is her name. <3

due to a wrist injury, i haven't stitched anything in a *looooong* time. now that i'm all healed up, i've been on a stitching rampage -- i've completed three projects in the past week!  Grin

i'm sending this tea towel off to my aunt and her family.

5  the cage is too small for the heart. in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by classy broad on: January 09, 2011 05:33:54 PM
first completed project of 2011!!
my goal is to finish one project a week

i used patterns from "embroidered effects" & vital organs.
(not sure if you can see, but there are tiny purple stitches on the red veins, for extra detail)
a lot of firsts here: my first post in a long time & my first attempt @ chain stitch.

6  goodbye necklace, hello sweater clip. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by classy broad on: July 11, 2010 09:27:58 AM
i got this awesome hello sailor necklace from work, but i already have a ton of necklaces. so, i took an old anchor charm (from another necklace i've never worn!), and made a sweater clip/brooch.

7  classy as f#@! -- cocktail napkins in Needlework: Completed Projects by classy broad on: July 10, 2010 11:32:05 PM
i got a set of adorable cocktail napkins on clearance from target a couple of years ago, but could never decide what to embroider on them.

then i got the idea to stitch something vulgar, to contrast with the cute, delicate napkins. i was originally going to stitch really girly patterns, but decided to stick with simple statements & pretty accents.

8  jewelry board. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by classy broad on: December 31, 2009 04:28:23 PM
my small jewelry box is starting to overflow, and i needed a way to store my necklaces, without the chains getting all tangled.

so, i took an idea from bust magazine, and made a jewelry board.

i got a cheap bulletin board at target, painted the purple frame black & wrapped the cork in polka dot fabric.
i also coated a set of push-pins with black glitter.

sorry it took me so long to post pictures!

these are my goodies from fadinghippie!

she sent me a sassy little "pinup-housewife kit", complete with apron [such awesome fabric! and it reverses to solid black], lingerie top made from 50s lace, thigh-highs with backseams & bows, and a vintage-y necklace!

a better shot of the top -- so saucy [and it fits perfectly]!

and a hand-painted hello kitty coin bank!

thank you so much, kat!
i love everything!  Grin

sorry for posting pics so late!

i actually received *two* great packages from loralyn -- the first one spent some time in delivery limbo, so she kindly made me another set, but then the original arrived!  Cheesy

package 01: 2 really well-made bags [one "paper" and one "plastic", as loralyn described in her sweet note -- isn't that button so cute?], a keychain, a little zipper pouch [fun cherry lip balm included!], and a little notepad for list making!

package 02: 2 more bags! a structured tote, and a singlet that folds up into that cute little pocket [if i can figure out how to do that again! Cheesy]

she also sent me a yummy chocolate truffle bar!
thanks loralynGrin
