so. i finally got around to psping images again, and heres two of my loverboy and i. i like how they came out. the red one, i had it just perfect, and my psp froze, idk why but it always does if i have things running or have been on it too long. so i retraced all my steps after closing it and reopening it up, then added the ring, heart, and rose. and unfortunately, i did not think to make a different brush thing for the leaves, so its a a red stem and leaves as well. meh. here goes.
Me and lover boy-- Love Is Great(very proud.)
From the start(pretty good)
no originals, made from 'scratch" took away my heart avatar
Love is for the gullible(oldschool skills but still proud)
I love you( another old one, but applicable again <3)
whew. sorry its so fat with pics, nad sorry if pics are huge heh..tell me what you think? the backgrounds are so old. lol.
so.. i have been handsewing until i got my sewing machine.. which i havent figured out yet. well. havent tried lol. but the basis of my projects have been for her.. the red party dress though has a matching headband i havent been able to find And the brown sweater, i made out of my sweater and i have socks for me that i made well. here goes!
Brown sweater off
Misti on her lil chair i found in old house for her
Top of it
Details of the collar( same as the bottom hem.
she wants a tumy wub, i just want to show off the ties (which can be tied in different ways. that i didnt show..
Stitching detail, although you cant see the stiches attaching the red and polka material
Mistis blue t shirt, with a plaid heart stitched together from plaid scraps, and the sides are tied together. ie generation t style
and also, the party dress was made out of a lil girl polka dot skirt, and a red shirt sleeve of mine:P the blue shirt was a onesie with some advertisement for i believe a walk/run event, covered up cutely. with a heart and bow. the heart doesnt show too well in pics. made it while babysitting, and she helped sew a few stitches.
p.s what i dont get...is how she can be so patient while i try everyone on for sizing, redo, try on again. but doesnt cooperate while i take the pics.. oh and when im trying to take pics of MY clothes/jewelry then she just HAS to be in the pic. arrgh. shes such a ...little me? hehe
so..i finally came up with a few ideas to make something for the fiancee( guys are so hard..) and although its crappy ( apparently wire choosing isnt my thing. that and the supplies in this lil hicktown SUCK.)but he loves it.. soo.
i made a pair of xmas dangles and bracelet. well. actually we had a moving out o our house bc our landlord is senile and dumb last party, party.. and the theme was green. then we decided to do green and red so i made these earrings. and two EXACTLY the same bracelets for me and sis. i made a pair of earrings real quick for our friend mallory too, but didnt have a camera.. the earrings are- jingle balls,swarvoski crystals, heart beads glass beads. bracelet is just seedbeads, and heart beads. onto the pics!!
barbed wire bracelet
on him <3
ouch. cuts.. after completed, i have total of four cuts and one gouge.. ..hes lucky i loves him hehe
My pup Misti Blue and Snuggles.
Horrible closeup of earrings
and here it is on
and sorry for the pic quality. its late and sucky camera..
so. ive been a lurker a while, and posted quite a bit.. but, after i got my spiffy new cell, i just used the net on it. ( no craftster though, bummer) well, long story short. party+toilet= sadness. it half works now. lol. but, i have made quite some pairs of earrings,
pics suck, but they are really cute, no action shot.. figure it would be unprofessional?
give me comments and critique please, <3s rock now
so. my parents took the camera with them to colorado, so in my free time i made a bunch of stuff, heres most of it.far too drained to upload the others onto puter
this is my "party beads" batch. cuteness.
and up closer. i call this one, my partridge in a pear tree..( without the partridge. haha). i love it, didnt expect to though. leaf bead, party bead, beads, wire
this one i love. its a green party bead, a lil butterfly bead, and some spacer/e beads from a bead tube at walmart.
this ones called party hearty! its a drop type, i think i couldve added more of the pink crystalish beads, two more. but eh.. oh well. -party bead, crystal beads, and heart bead, and wire
ONTO "HEART TIME" earrings
flat on paper.
*EDIT*- so i think i uploaded the pair thats on the top right, but i dont know and im tired, you can see it good enough! its just one fake pearl lookin pink round bead in the middle of two diamondish clear ones, then a magicical metal heart( use em alot i guess), and a jingly on a eye pin
HEARTLY waiting i call this one. unfortunately at my party, i lost one.. dunno how. but meh. i just hope my tyler didnt eat my earrings again.. umm a pink heart bead, then some diamondish ones, then a heart bead again, with a jingly through it.
O0o0o Lah Lah- this ones by far my fave, its so cute.. i used two old rosebud earrings( posts, that broke., two pearl drop beads from other earrings also broke, and my fave lil metalish heart bead.
and a close up of o0o lah lah
and last but not least, the beaded roundish ones.
round beaded- i made a wire hoop, strung seed beads on, then wrapped wire between the beads, and added a bar down with a pony in the middle.
tear drps- blue/green. meant a totally dif design with things hanging off off tear, but wire broke, it turned ito a complex wrapping that i had to replicate for other earring ( made one earring at a time.)
crappy shot, so close up.
so im kinda impressed with a few pairs, tell me what yall think .
so... i looked endlessly on here. and maybe im just blonde. or maybe its the uber long day this has been. but i need to get some rest for my 2nd day of work..... annnd.. i really want a sewing machine, so i can get going on all these projects ive started, then realized im too lazy to handsew. not to mention not that patient and skilled.
so. any suggestions on a gooood machine? they all confuse me. which brands are better and what models.. i seem to see brother everywhere.. but my instinct says singer.. ill be sewing pretty much anything i can. mostly cloths and fabroc, some jeans perhaps... thanks!!
soo. the ICP-based jesters are a gift for a homie of mine. shes been beggin me for earings, and i found two random joker cards, randomly and boom the idea hit. they didnt really turn out as great as i had hoped, but then again my camera skills suck and dont do em justice either. but here we go.
and theres also my "Smiling..on the outside" earrings, which barely read- DYING INSIDE" on back, made from joker cards as well. im so proud of these actually. gonna wear tomorrow!
then theres the hangman intial pendant. i like it, tis cute. annd my ghetto ring- magazine clippings. theres words, and a mouth and planet on top of the words. kinda cant tell though.
ONTO THE PICS!!
group pic! i like how you can see the jesters, the smiling ones arent too bad a show off either in this pic. and the rings kinda clear. hehe.
jokers BEFORE ICPizaTION..( still, after i cut them and the words joker out.. hmm too eager hehe)
crappy pic of the jokers finished, the one on right i may have coated a bitt too plasticy oops. oh well. doubt many pics will be taken of them lol
wow. an apparently tiny pic of my pendant and ring. cute pendy though i shay.
and apparently thats where the pics stop, i forgot to upload the second round and im sooo tired. so maybe i will update tomorrow. tell me watcha think so far, eh?
so. i had this tee i thought was cute, turns out it was too big. well, with my moms super old image transfer kit ( you actually used some gluey gunk to put on the back of a pic/magazine pic, and transfered it onto a shirt....anyone know where to get this stuff anymore?)
.. well i used that, and accidentally put mr pitt on sideways on my boobs hehe. still, did way better than my first experiment with it.. hehehehe. anyways, cut it up into a cute off shoulder top.. might edit with closer up pic of the pittster. dunno
dont mind the black dot on chest, screw up with red eye fixer.. the screw up? it doesnt work that great lol..
this ones just cause its too cute of a pic teehee.
soo anyways. i might cover up the brad pitt failure somehow, and maybe take it in a bit. im thinking of side or back ties. any ideas to help me out on either things? i just dont think shes done..
but the one thing i LOVE is i used some of the sleeve to make the ties, they are cute!!!!Im always planning on putting red lace on the neck area, or some crap like that.
well. i rushed out to walmart. 10 miles into town just to get- witch hazel aspirin. 2. oz travel spray bottle 3. oz travel fliptop bottle
we had the oils and aloe and water here..i suppose i should have used distilled water. hmm..
well heres my recipe-
SPRAY-(2 oz walmart travel container) 1 aspirin 3/4 full with witch hazel 1/4 water about 10 drops of- french lavender ESSENTIAL oil( reg. lavender works too) tea tree ESSENTIAL oil. and some aloe from our plant.
TONER-(3 oz travel bottle 4 aspirin 3/4 w. hazel 1/4 water same measurements of oils. some aloe
now, you HAVE to use the ESSENTIAL oils. some are harmful to your skin. im sure lemon juice woulda been great too.
what im doing is- #1- cleanse( i use my dads homemade African soap, exfoliates GREAT) #2- tone ( pour toner onto a cotton ball or two.) #3- spray once during day ( mid day) #4- cleanse again at night #5- possibly spray again.
not too sure on # 5 dont want to overly dry out my skin. my face feels wonderfully smooth though, im pretty faithful in this notion. plus the spray will definitely help with hard to reach places, such as the back.
