1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / from a window to a picture frame on: December 20, 2009 11:50:18 PM

As my name might indicate, I like poppies.  So awhile back I had this idea to take an old window and use it as a frame for some pics of poppies I took while walking my dog this summer.  I was going to paint the wood trim, but it had yellow and pink paint layers under the white that ended up looking great with some strategic sanding.  I never thought I'd be creating a faux antique look, but I am very happy with it.  The green squares might get orange poppies, since they're my favorite, if I can get some good pics next summer.  I'm not sure yet if that will create a flower overload or not.

And up close with better color:
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 2 new necklaces on: September 01, 2009 12:49:00 AM
The first pendant is my first ever experiment with resin, so please be kind Smiley

I'm a bit of a dork so since we were using spoons as a base I decided to make a spoonful of sugar.  I used the chemical symbol for sucrose and a bit of glitter at the end of the spoon.

The second is a choker made from leather, lace and a brass flower button.  I think it still needs something, but I like it.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / tattoo themed house items on: February 01, 2009 09:34:11 PM
My little brother finally got his own place.  So I figured I should send him some basic house hold items.  I wanted them to be kind of original, so this is what I came up with.  I'm not quite happy with them but they might get sent anyway.

Two pot holders and two kitchen towels

A super soft fuzzy fleece blanket with patches at the corners

Any ideas on improvements?
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / dog bed on: February 01, 2009 09:26:55 PM

A very late christmas present for my friend and her pug.  Its a little flashy and kind of looks like a flattened beach ball but I still like it.  I think its fitting for a pug named Lola.  I believe its from a simplicity pattern.

I made a bigger one for my husky, but the black fleece and red and black houndstooth don't look as pretty when they have a layer of white fur.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / better sweater on: February 01, 2009 09:18:51 PM

This isn't quite a recon, maybe more improvement and a fix.  I got this sweet hooded cashmere sweater from a thrift store but it had a couple little holes in the front.  But it was so comfy and awesome I figured I could just patch over it some how.   I decided a little pocket would be cute and useful, but then when I got that on I didn't feel like it blended in so I added some lace trim around the hood.

 It may get further improvements ( I think some teal velvet inside the hood might be the most awesome thing ever) but for now I am quite stoked.  Let me know what ya think.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / bikey christmas ornaments on: December 02, 2008 09:59:16 PM
I like bikes, recycling and the shape of gears a lot. So at some point when thinking about what I might make for my friends for christmas I came up with this.   A cog turned into an ornament.  I'm still experimenting they will probably get bows, maybe bells on some etc.  I'm not able to post pics yet so here is the link:

Hope you enjoy!
