1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Ideas to decorate my tattooing station?? on: February 10, 2010 03:48:10 PM
I have major crafter's block.
Here's a photo. There are also two giant blank white walls. I'm unable to paint it but I can add vinyl wall decals/shelves, pictures, etc etc. It's pretty dull and I'd especially appreciate an idea to cover up that ugly A/C thing next to my desk. If you post links to tutorials I'll love you for eternity.. Thanks in advance Cheesy

I need lots of cool and cheap ideas. I'm already planning to make a cork board, vinyl wall stickers, etc. But I'm having a crafter's block.  Sad Any ideas? Links are appreciated & the cheaper the better. Thank you in advance!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boris, the draft-stopping, roach-blocking, from an old stocking snake!! on: April 15, 2009 04:18:59 PM

I just love his goofy face!

For some reason, although I have a clean home, I'm having a cockroach problem and I needed to make a door stopper for my bedroom to keep them out. Also works as a draft stopper.
I saw this post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=274186.0) and decided I'd like to make one for myself. Instead of googly eyes I used faux animal eyes, and I used an old gray knit sock with a neat pattern. He's stuffed with old t-shirts and has a heavy washer hidden in his tail and head to keep him in place. All in all, he costs under $7 to make.

Here's Boris in action:

And a full-body:

So.. is he awesome??  Grin
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / I need help with organizing my Shoe Mountain in my closet!! D: on: April 11, 2009 02:41:16 PM
Well, yesterday I was cleaning like a mad woman and the only thing that I had trouble organizing was a pile of shoes in my closet. I need to make a shoe organizer (duh).
Here's my dilemma: I can't drill any holes in the wall.
I don't like how the over the door hangers look.. Does anyone have any better ideas?
I really appreciate any feedback!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / xl band shirt into bikini (kind of sloppy) on: February 18, 2009 10:29:03 AM
I know it's sloppy.. I have to hand sew! I'm also going to line the inside with some better fabric. Right now it's lined with some black fabric from an old one piece.. I apologize for the image quality

the butt.. it says "you lose"

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cheap and Easy Gauges.. from tampons!? (tutorial) on: February 11, 2009 03:26:28 PM
I'm a long time lurker of a couple years actually.. So I've finally decided to post something up here.

They're really easy to make, and really cheap. Mostly made out of things from around the house. My ears are 1/2" (only :,[) so instead of the tampon end you might need to improvise.

You'll need:
2 Tampons (I use the compak kind), 2 tiny rubber bands, super glue, scissors, a lighter, and gems/buttons/whatnot.

Step 1: pull out the applicator stick from the tampon. Cut a 1 inch piece off the end.

Step 2: Put heat against the end that was cut with the scissors. This is to smooth out jagged edges.

They should look like this:

Step 3: Put super glue around the opposite end. Have your gem or button face-down and place the glue end to the back of the gem/button. Hold for 30 seconds and then let dry for 15 minutes.

Finally: Stick them through your ears and place the rubber band on the back to prevent them from falling out!
