111  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by blushingbluegrass on: January 21, 2009 09:19:45 AM
So that is a hard act to follow, but I just got the picture of my most recent tattoo and thought I would share.

I had been thinking about this one for awhile, and finally got it in November (?)

Excuse the poor photo quality. I never knew how hard it was to take a picture of your hip!!!

112  Kermit Onesie in Stenciling: Completed Projects by blushingbluegrass on: December 01, 2008 02:23:48 PM
So, quick back story (feel free to skip ahead!  Roll Eyes): my old roomate found out she was pregnant, but her fiance was leaving for the air force, so they couldnt tell anyone, or he would get kicked out. To get around this problem, we gave new baby a codename. And so, Kermit was born. Well, not born. More like named. But not really named, just nicknamed.

ANYWAY, if you are still patient enough to be with me, may I present my baby shower gift.....

As usual, I apologize for the poor photo quality... Photographer I am not!

hey! don't know if you already figured something out for not, but there are these types of screws that are double sided, and have one end wood screw and one end drywall screw. they look something like.....


you would screw one end into the drift (a part that is especially sturdy!) and then one part into a stud... if you go to a small hardware store and tell them what you are doing, they should be able to help you. (also, mention the two-sided screw majigs)

best wishes!

114  Jack Skellington Stocking in Winter Holidays by blushingbluegrass on: October 20, 2008 06:57:48 PM
So, my guy's stocking was ruined when our basement flooded last year. I wanted to make him a new stocking for Christmas and this is what I came up with.......

As always, pardon the crappy photos. Our camera sucks!!!!

Be kind, fellow Craftsters! This was my very first project embroidering anything.... Its pretty rough. :/  But there is a definite difference in the first letters I did, with the last letters I did. That is exciting!

Thanks for looking!

115  Carved pumpkin! Mad Hatter! in Halloween Decor and Parties by blushingbluegrass on: October 12, 2008 04:59:12 PM
So I completely loooooove carving pumpkins and I get excited every year when I start seeing pumpkins big enough to carve on.... I was out today and decided I couldn't wait any longer!

Here he is all lit up...

Here he is in the light....

And here is the inspiration *in case you couldn't tell, which is understandable, lol*

For good measure, here is last year's attempt... I think he looks a little bit more like who he is supposed to!

Sorry for the crappy pictures, I did my best....

116  Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by blushingbluegrass on: September 30, 2008 05:45:22 PM
So I tend to get tattoos to commemorate different times in my life. And I have had an awesome year, so I decided I wanted to get my other hip tattoo and I am thinking about something like this:

Dogwoods are my favorite trees and I have plenty of happy memories laying in or under one. All my tattoos are black/gray, so this one will probably follow suit.

What do you all think?

117  vintage photograph in What the heck can I do with THIS? by blushingbluegrass on: September 05, 2008 07:27:47 PM
So, I guess this is where this would go, because I am turning to you, fellow Craftsters, to help me drum up some ideas on what I could do with this wonderful old photo....

This photo is actually a reconstructed reprint, as the original was in pretty bad shape....

In the photo is my Great-uncle with his new bride in 1942. The car in the background, my Great-aunt tells me, is a 1935 Ford.

I think this is probably my favorite photo of all time, but I don't just want to frame it and put it on a table... I want to do something special with it...

Any ideas??

118  Re: Show Off Your Hair! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by blushingbluegrass on: August 30, 2008 08:36:43 AM
So I love looking at all the fantastic 'do's! Here is what my hair is supposed to look like.....

And this photo was one that was actually taken a bit ago, but you get the idea...


I really like the asymetrical cut.... and if I could, I would dye it pink again (my favorite of the hair colors I've done) but with my job it really wouldn't work out. POOOOOH.

119  Reupholstered chair *a few pics* First Reupholster!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by blushingbluegrass on: August 18, 2008 10:14:46 AM
So, I found this rad chair at the Goodwill for $8 and fell in love with the cutouts of the back of the chair.... TOOO CUTE!

I knew it would look perfect in the craft room I am decorating for myself (more to come on that!), so I loaded it up and took it home.....

I forgot to take a complete before picture, but this is the fabric that was on it.... I just laid it back over it to give you an idea....

And then I found this awesome fabric on the 60% off table at Hancock's....

So, I got out my handy dandy toolset and combined the two!

(I promise the chair is not crooked, I am just not a great photographer!)

Comments/criticisms appreciated!

120  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by blushingbluegrass on: August 12, 2008 05:08:50 PM
I'm a total sewing newb, but I was tired of borrowing peoples' machines, and the last machine I had was plastic and bright pink.

So, while in my friendly neighborhood Goodwill today, I made an impulse purchase of $20. She works, and even if it turns out she is crap, I can turn the cabinet into something neat!

Here she is...

I think I will call her Sady.

comments? horror stories? advice? All are welcome!
