wow, that's an awesome box from mynameis_jinx. and is that a tooth from SnapsandDragons? awesome!

I got my box from zatanna today, and I am so happy with it! But am I going to post too many pictures of it? Oh craftster, you know me too well. Of course I am.
Here it is still packed up with the SWEET card zatanna included - she did a bit of stalking and picked a blue and white theme (yay!):

And here's when I just pulled it out (it was literally leaking seed beads):

And now shots of the stuff - I love this blue sequins thing, it's like waves:

Little elephant! Eee!

Some of my favorite things in this picture - glass bit with green swirlies, made with love metal tag, googly eyes, little clay hearts... OK, so everything is cool. Oh, and beads make me very happy, by the way.

Thanks again, zatanna! You were fun to swap with.

~I'm Rosie, and I approved this package.~

Oh, the ninjamas are so cute!

I'm going to post the matchboxes I decorated; both of my partners should have received three days ago, but I've only heard from one of them.

They were a lot of fun to do, and they got filled with tiny goodies!

I finally got pictures of a shirt I reconed this year (craft #7), posted here:

I've also done two little matchboxes for a swap (craft #9), which I'll post when my partners receive. Smiley

324  Cirque du Soleil and Obama shirt recons! Pic ++, as usual. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Acadian Driftwood on: March 08, 2009 02:01:03 PM
I did these two a while ago, but I finally have access to a working camera! Yay!

OK, my grandfather got me this Obama 08 shirt back before the elections and I spiffed it out a bit with material from two other shirts. I even managed to line the bust area using one of the sleeves I cut off! Go me.
Shot of the back:

This next one I got quite a while ago at a Cirque du Soleil show in Boston (which was amazing of course), which is why I love it. But I thought it was asking for a bit of sprucing up, and I really like the fit of it now...

On one side, I put in a panel...

And on the other I took it in and added some appliqué. My only complaint here is that on this side, in order to preserve sleeve integrity, I had to add in this little triangle of fabric that looks out of place now. You can't see it most of the time, though.

Here's a close-up of the appliqué - I love this fabric!

Little shot of the back:

And finally a close-up of the collar. I put the original tag back in... just 'cause...

OK, thank you for enduring my pic-fever.

Here's my song page: Richard Thompson's 1952 Vincent Black Lightning

The key on the page is usually tucked away in the pocket that says "I've no further use for these."

Numba 5 is a quick pants -> skirt recon, using a pair of pants who's fabric I love, but I never wore them because they were too long and tight around the thigh.

Here's how it hangs:

and a shot of the original pants:

I think I'm going to be making some doll clothes soon - my friend gave me his childhood pall to babysit while he's in Central America, so I'm planning to have a little photobook of me + doll adventures when he gets back in the spring.

Yay, projects 2 & 3 are done!

First, the amazing David Bowie my little pony!


Next, a pair of driving mittens, which aren't as nice as I wanted them to be, but they didn't take all that long, so meh.

328  Cautionary tales of mittens in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: January 15, 2009 03:19:33 PM
I was looking at this tute from Vegbee, and realized I needed some hand-warmthitude while driving, and that I had some bits of fleece as well. The end result of my project is... functional... adequate... and something I will use. But, in case you want to make some, I have a few words of advice for you: Leave yourself more room in the thumb than I did. Make them a more rounded shape at the end. Use less elastic than you think you need. Or just leave the elastic out alltogether... it's a bitch to sew between the layers.
Still, not bad lookin' mittens.

Oh, and now I have a goddamn mustache. [language warning]

329  My Little... David Bowie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: January 15, 2009 03:00:40 PM
Ahhhhhhhh, I am so excited to have finished this! It had been sitting, half-done, in my craft cabinet for months, and I was finally bored enough to finish re-hairing.


Aladdin Sane-inspired, obviously.

And yes, it does have authentic Bowie eyes! (And the little collar bone drip)

He began his new life with me as an Amberlocks in a yard sale...

He was then beheaded, behaired, and painted up good before I found a barbie (yay tag sales) with the perfect color hair to re-root with.

In-progress face paint:

And the first (unsuccessful) attempt at hair styling:

Here's my reference picture... and here's the David Bowie swap you should totally join!
