1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Flirty Birdie Bird Feeder on: February 22, 2017 01:33:57 PM
I repurposed a thrift store cup & saucer into a bird feeder. Can't wait to fill it up and watch the bird buffet!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pearl Embellished Turtleneck on: February 21, 2017 06:35:45 AM
This is my first post in a long time. I took a craft hiatus for many personal reasons, but now that I've started back up, I can't seem to stop! And it feels great to be back!  Grin

I usually stay away from turtlenecks, because I feel frumpy in them. Then I saw this idea from brit+co, and decided to give it a try.

I used all materials I had on hand: old black sweater, pearl beads (from a previous swap project, actually) and an old headband. The only thing I needed was embellishment glue, and I got a mini 3-pack of Aleene's fabric glues for $3.

I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was an inexpensive, relatively simple project, though a bit time consuming. Though the glue is supposed to be washable, I think I'll go back over time, and reinforce each bead with thread.

And it will certainly help make the gloomy weather we've been having lately a bit more tolerable.  Wink
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sparkly Jewelry Dish 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!


4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Baby Food Jars/Mini Jars on: July 20, 2014 11:14:03 AM
After bouncing around for a few years, I'll be moving into a new apartment with friends in a couple weeks. I've pretty much been given free reign for decorating the kitchen/dining area (Grin), and had an idea to repurpose tiny jars for bulk spices.
Does anyone know where I might be able to find them for free/super cheap? I'm located in the (San Francisco) East Bay (Fremont/Hayward/Union City) area.
Thanks for any leads! Smiley

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

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.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / goodbye necklace, hello sweater clip. 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.

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / classy as f#@! -- cocktail napkins 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.

*xo...
