31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Flowers on: March 21, 2009 01:59:36 AM
This is a very small and simple oil painting I did a while ago -- I based it off a picture I saw in a magazine (which I tore out and stole), as I thought it was very beautiful, and it made great practice.

32  COOKING / Dessert / Plyushki - Russian pastries on: March 21, 2009 01:52:46 AM
These are plyushki, though my grandmother calls them zhavoronki (in Russian, that's the name of a bird -- I think it's "lark" in English). I have made these only a couple of times because it takes so long -- 2 hours or so for the dough to rise and probably another 3 hours to cut and shape the pastries. But the result is very satisfying.  Grin

33  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Flower ashtray on: March 21, 2009 01:44:20 AM
I know this is pretty weak compared to all the other creations here, but this is my first (and only, so far) pottery project -- a flower ashtray/incense holder:

Thanks for looking. Smiley
34  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Rug of ultimate ugliness on: March 18, 2009 09:44:21 PM
I have had a big and ugly beige-ish sort of rug sitting rolled up in my living room for forever. Is there any way I can improve it (like painting, etc)? And if I paint it, what kind of paint should I use?
35  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Repaired first aid kit on: March 17, 2009 07:07:11 PM
One day, a dirty, rusty first aid kit appeared out of nowhere in my boyfriend's car -- and I decided to make it look less ugly.

Here is the before:

I sanded most of the rust off and spray painted it black on the outside and pale green on the inside. Then I drew out the words and picture I wanted on some cardboard, cut them out, and used it to spray paint the top (unfortunately, some of the spray paint leaked under the cardboard so some of the letters are a tad bit shapeless, but meh)--

--and filled it up with the stuff that was in there before and some of my own:

Hope you like it. : )
36  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Two notebooks from scratch on: February 05, 2009 12:41:44 AM
I made these some months ago, from cardboard and wrapping paper.

This is my first one:

And this is my second one, after I taught myself the coptic stitch.

I hope you like them. Smiley
37  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Unused headboard and footboard on: February 04, 2009 01:08:25 AM
So I have a pretty carved foot board and headboard (minus the bed) that doesn't fit our current bed and I want to use it for something but I have no idea what to turn it into. Any ideas?  Huh
38  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconstructed chairs on: January 27, 2009 08:18:46 PM
Hi, this is my first time posting. I recently discovered how to re-upholster chairs and decided to do it to some ugly chairs my boyfriend's relatives gave us.

This is before:


And this is after:

It was my first time doing it, but I hope you like it. Smiley
