I made a couple things and showed them to a girl at work who was interested in buying, she told a couple people, and now everyday I am asked about my jewelery, or have request for a certian color... blah blah blah. So I went out bought more stuff, and made a boat load of things!! One of the girls I work with even bought me a cool hand thingy to take pics of my things with! I love it!!
Now to the pictures!
the larger bead at the end is pink, the wood takes away from the pink color
Thinking of something like these for my wedding
Here is a necklace/bracelet set for a co-workers 4yr old daughter
These are for my 6yr old niece
Thanks for looking, comments are more than welcome.
Her are a few things I have madem the rings are the most recent. I actually just ordered a mandrel so I can size them, and sell them!! Though I do need more practice! I already gave my better looking one to my BFF, no pic of that one. Anyways, enjoy, and thanks for looking, please let me know what you think!
Some of these I really like the way they turned out, but some I am not all that excited about, but I still like sharing.
these are cheapy plastic ones, just added them for good measure!
OK, so lastnight I started my paper mache doggy. I got some chickent wire, which was awful to work with, it kept wanting to roll back up.... but I got it! Heres what I got so far..... dont mind the tape, I had to add to it to make it bigger!!
Okay, so I was on my way home from work and saw these windows leaning against a house... I just had to stop and ask about them..... of course they didnt want that 'trash' so I took ALL OF THEM, even the broken one! There are a total of 28 windows. I have a slight idea of what I would like to do with them, but it wont take nearly 28 of them! I was thinking of using those corners used for scrapbooking, to hold pictures on the glass.... their name escapes me! Put the photos on the front side of the glass, and do some kind of treatment, frosting, paint, colored paper, to the back, and paint the panes different colors, this way I wont have to paint my rented walls, but can cover them up with these great windows!! Any additional ideas would be awesome!! Thanks!
Here are a few pictures of my most recent projects. They are nothing big and impressive, mostly just things in my craft area... that is still not finished yet!! I hope you like them.... and comments welcome.
My curtains in my craft area werent long enough, I have 2 windows, and decided to do them each differently. my favorite one..
and the other.. (I think I might take this one apart, and make it match the other one)
I found the little picket fence part at the Goodwill, painted it white, added the flowers, and painted grass, and ladybugs on it.....
Part of my mothers day gift for my mom. They came black, and I added pink ribbon, and the buttons.
I got a new laptop for my birthday, and quickly got bored with the plain look of it. I had an envelope full of diamonds I cut out of mags for whatever may have crossed my mind for them... the bird because he is the same color as the diamonds!
And 2 christmases ago my mother got me my sewing machine, and one of them white, boring, plain carriers.... I decided to make it mine! The sides....
This is a picture I took of our kitchen as I was cleaning it before we moved in. I like a lot of cabinet space, but this is a little over doing it!! I would have to litterally climb on the counters to get to the top row of cabinets, but I dont us 'em. Any suggestion on what I could do with this? I am going to go with reds, yellows, and oranges for the kitchen. My inspiration are these great sheer orange curtians I found at walmart. I was thinking I could remove the doors on the top row and use it to display something, but I dont really have anything cool enough to display, and I dont collect anything. AND I rent, so I cant really do a whole lot...... I havent even asked if I can paint yet!!
I have read a couple post here, and on instructables about cardboard furniture. My fiance and myself was surfing the web looking at dressers and similar type of clothing storage for our room. We came across this GREAT looking dresser type deal, that was hundreds of dollars.... I just knew I could make it, or atleast try. So here is my attempt at cardboard furniture. I am very proud of it, and it is very sturdy. I work at walmart, and the manager let me have some ov the BIG signing they put up at each door, so I have a bunch left, I'm gonna make some great bed side tables too!!
As you can see I'm not totally finished, I have to finish up the bottom drawer, and paint. I was even thinking I could make a paper mache paste, and slap some on there to hade the egdes of the tape, and give it a cool look to it.
Suggestions, and comment are welcomed. Thanks for looking.
