Wow! Those are really beautiful! My last house had authentic granite and I think I like yours better! Plus I like how you put "Believe" in the window, so everyone who enters your kitchen will automatically subconsciously fall for its realism! hahahaaa! j/k! Seriously though At one point or another I have had every level of kitchen counters from unfinished plywood, to rotting laminate, to great laminate, to granite, so I have done a lot a research and have spent many hours fixing crappy counters! Good job!
Very cool! I don't take my iron anywhere, but i would totally make this if I did. I like the way it looks all folded up for an actual handbag! I wonder how hard it would be to make a pattern for a bag that didn't unflod per se, but looked like this!?
ok first of all hyperbole and a half is the best thing since calvin and hobbes! It sucks that she hasn't put out anything new in awhie, but I guess that's because of the book she's writing. Also, my sister Kendra lives in Spring and she goes to that Pinot's Pallete all the time! She introduced me to both HAAH, and PP. I live in NY right now, so I haven't made it to Pinot's but I love your idea of having a painting party at home, plus I LOVE your finished piece!!!!!
I know this post is old, but i'm just seeing. I love HK too and am sooooo not ashamed! I recently lost my beautiful craft studio when my house burned down, but it was the place where i put all the things i loved that didnt "go" with anything else in the house. needless to say, there was a lot of HK!!! BTW if you give the bow a coating a clear spray paint it will all be shiny. cute cabinet and room!
Your post almost made me cry! I lost EVERYTHING in a house fire in February and I had an awesome professional KA mixer I was going to do something like this to. I wasn't sure exactly how to go about it, but now its gone. *snif* Your post inspired me though because i WILL be getting another one and I WILL be painting it!!! Oh, and for future reference, when painting one color on top of anoher, put a base coat of white first and you'll get a better finished product. The flowers look good in the pix, but I know what you mean about having to do so many coats. You could have probably gotten by with 2-3 coats if you had done 1 white coat first. Awesome job, and awesome find! Love the Hawaii theme!
Awesome quilt! And for those interested in making one, I've seen denim squares on ebay relatively cheap. and if you use a fleece or something similarly heavy for the back, you can probably skip the batting in the middle.
This looks like it would be really cool to do as a shirt too. Just cut off the bottom hem, cut strips up to just under your boobs, and repeat the knotting technique. it would probably work best with a shirt thats a couple of sizes too big, but I bet it would look neat!
