A cool result. What a simple solution: my favourite kind!

Haha, mine too!
Thank you!  Smiley

That is amazing! If I saw only the finished product I wouldn't guess you had reconstructed the whole thing, it looks so well finished and elegant. Great work Cheesy

D'awwwh, thank you!!  That's really what I was going for, lol.  I liked the dress exactly how it was--just wanted to be able to wear it!  XD

that's soo cute and creative
Love the skirt

Thank youuuu!!!  ^____^

Just wanted to let you know your profile on JPG has your birthday clearly stated.. I only know this because when you posted your wedding photography post I looked at all your other links/work I could find!!! LOVE your stuff!! All of it is stunning!! You are an absolutely AMAZING photographer!!

Crap.  You're right.  ;_____;
Thank you so much for the compliments though!!  ^___^  Have you checked out my portfolio/blog?

I can always use some new readers to my blog--especially ones that COMMENT, 'cause nobody ever does, lol. <3


infinitelyjen, you were right, but since I have no way of telling if you cheated or not (not implying that you did--just saying, there's no way to tell :/), I'm gonna have to do a different contest.  I'm REALLY sorry <333333



As Vampira_666 pointed out, my last version of this contest was flawed, since the answer could be easily found via a google search (since I use the same username for practically everything  Roll Eyes)
Therefore, new contest!  This time, there's no possible way that you can search for it, 'cause it's the ever-so-simple...

I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 60.  What is it?

Same basic rules apply--one guess at a time (although multiple guesses ARE allowed), first one to guess it gets the hair....thingy.  lol

(and my most sincere apologies to infinitelyjean....in fact, how about this--infinitelyjean, to make it a little more fair since you did get the answer right the first time, you--and only you--can have two guesses at a time <333)

So. Long story short, I work at La-Z-Boy, and I have some  upholstery fabric swatches that I saved from going into the trash. Decided I'd make a hair accessory (dunno what else to call it) from one of the swatches, then realized I'd never wear it because it's just not my style. I thought one of you might like it though (and it's a little rough looking on the back--I don't think I could sell it even if I tried), so I'm giving it away to the first person who guesses my birthday (just month and day). My only two hints are that the month begins with M, and my birthday has already occurred this year.


Here are some pictures of the hair accessory; good luck!

Accessory front:

Back (with comb clips and hot glue, lol)

The fabric I used:

Wear it with a side pony!

Wear it on the side with your hair down!

Wear it as a strange forest hat!

Wear it on top of a low pony!

This idea is a bit out there I admit, But why not make a pair of very patchwork pants? I had a friend in highschool who did that for a costume for a play. Maybe you could go as a scarecrow for Halloween! Cheesy

It's not THAT out there--I thought of it, too!  :3
The thing is though, I know for a fact I'd never wear them, and I'm trying to get the most use out of these swatches as I can (aka, I'd rather make a bunch of little things than just one big thing, and a pair of pants would take up a LOT of the swatches).  I appreciate the suggestion though!  ^____^

Nice job!  You did great! 

Ahh Henna.  Its been so long since I've done it.  I think this summer I am going to have to start it up again.  Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much!  ^____^
And hey...if you do some henna, you should totally post it here so we can see.  Cheesy  hehe

Just a little something I forgot to mention--if you view the photos via my blog, you can click on them and see the FULL SIZE versions as opposed to these teeny ones.  Wink

I made chair arm covers with pockets for remotes, using the extra pieces that came with our Lazy-Boys, and you could probably do the same with these. 

Ours came with a straight piece, I guess for the top of the recliner back (?), and I sewed it onto an arm cover, creating pockets that way.  I use upholstery pins to hold the cover in place.

I've seen some beautiful patchwork pillows, where some of the patches had fabric that was folded and then overlapped together, creating a rainbow of colors and texture.

You could use it to cover mats for framing pictures, too, which would give a nice rich texture to the mat.

Chair covers, placemats, reversible purses......have fun!

Oooo, those are all some awesome ideas--thanks!!  Cheesy

really nice! i enjoyed looking through them --i'm a photographer too (not as my career) and i think you're very talented. with digital, isn't it nice to just shoot away (but really, 1500??) the B&G should be pleased  Cheesy

Lol, thank you so much!  They were pleased--they got them on Monday and told me how much they loved them ^___^  (my policy is that I never post the pictures online before the b&g have seen them first--they deserve to have the first peek!  Wink)
And yes, 1500!!  I usually take a TON of pictures (way more than I would give the bride and groom--I think, in the end, I only wound up giving them about 8-900 of them), that way I know I get a good shot in case a bunch of the other ones are blurry.  Wink  In stressful situations like that, you can't just rely on "oh, I'm sure the picture turned out fine"  XD
I have a 4GB CompactFlash card though, and those 1500 pictures all fit on it Cheesy (I do my photos 2816x1880 pixels, as I find that most people don't need them any bigger Smiley).

Gorgeous pictures!! Good work!!

Thank you so much!! Cheesy
