22  Sunburst Mirror for under $20! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by myloveasdeep on: July 13, 2011 01:35:33 PM
I am normally a yarn and fabric crafter, but I recently got a 50's velvet tufted sofa from Craigslist, and I wanted a sunburst mirror to complement it. Of course, the eternal lament, those guys are expensive! So, I used this tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/Starburst-Mirror/

Materials I used:

bunch of bamboo sticks from Dollar Tree $1
some bamboo shish kebab skewers (I already had these, but they are cheap)
A can of chrome spray paint from Joann's $5.99
Assorted mirrors from Joann's, $5 total
Glue gun and hot glue sticks I already had (and I imagine you do, too)

Now for the prettiness!

With armchair for scale:

It took me less than one hour of work time, with a trip to the library while the paint dried. I am so happy with it!

23  Fumbling Polytheist's Shrine in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by myloveasdeep on: March 24, 2011 03:11:25 PM
If you have seen much of the True Blood series, you've probably noticed the big shrine Lafayette has over his fireplace. It's very difficult to find a screen shot of. I'm entranced by the colors and by the significance of his very literally catholic choice of shrine items-the Virgin, voodoo dolls, sacred hearts and leopard print. He has a wonderful line in the second season: "Jesus and I agree to see other people, but that doesn't mean we don't talk from time to time."

My husband and I both grew up in very traditional Christian homes, and we went through the rebellion/agnostic phase like most people do. Now we're trying to patch together a spiritual life that just responds to whatever gods/ideas/colors/words give us that stab of joy that lets us know there's more to life than the body.

This shrine just got started today, and it's right above our bed. We collected things that represent all the sacred bits we love.

The whole thing, surrounded by lights from our wedding and some paper lanterns from the thrift store. The squid are from a poster set of nature prints. I think my primary god might be a squid. That's a weird sentence, huh.

Jackalope, Carl Sagan, and a big egg (from Hobby Lobby)

Ganesh, the Virgin, and you can see part of the iron horseshoe (this is a bit from Terry Pratchett)

A Virgin shrine I made from a plastic tray and photos I took in Santa Fe, and a Hermit tarot card.

The Star tarot card and some fake grapes to represent Dionysus. The candles are being held in a tree-shaped metal candle sconce. The tree of life has deep meaning for both of us.

We are still going to add something to do with Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrisson, as well as a picture of Odin, Thor's hammer, and something for burlesque. Oh, and sea monsters.

I'm done with the afghan! My husband made two squares and I made two, sewed it, and did the bobble border.

I received from Eerka! A stenciled shirt that says "Now is the springtime of my discontent" and a pair of earrings that combine some of my favorite things: circles and red/sky blue together! Thank you, your work is beautiful and I appreciate the care you took to make something lovely for me!

30  The Doctor and the Girl (PIC HEAVY and MATURE THEMES) in Knitting: Completed Projects by myloveasdeep on: January 03, 2009 08:23:45 AM
My husband and I collaborated on this and took pictures and made notes from beginning to end. I am focusing on my knitting here but I don't know if this would fit better in another board..please let me know!

October 5, 2008: Cuyler is taking a Sci Fi Lit class, and came up with an amazing idea for a final project based on the story of Dr. Carl von Cosel. If you have not heard this story, would like to, are over 18 and have a strong stomach, Google this: A Demented Love: The Story of Carl von Cosels Obsession

We wanted to tell the story of what might have happened had the doctor's plan to bring Elena's body into space worked. We decided to do a photographic story in silent film style, using knitted dolls and a polymer clay spaceship. I designed and knitted the dolls and he painstakingly made the ship, we both helped with the paper backgrounds and photography (neither of us is any good at photography). If anyone is interested in the pattern for the dolls I could probably come up with something.

Basic idea: Doctor wants to bring a dead girl back to life. He is convinced that space radiation will cure her, so he builds a ship to bring her into space. It works, but in his excitement he opens the tank she is in, releasing the radiation and killing him. The ship crashes on Mars and she is left to wander the planet alone. The full project is 20 photos or so and we are working on posting it as a slideshow on Youtube or something...I will add that link when we get there.

Here are the preliminary sketches my husband did:

Here is my work started:

Here are some of the finished pictures:
