1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / recent creations :) on: September 25, 2010 11:37:59 AM




The first one was inspired by that necklace from confessions of a teenage drama queen, and maybe audrey hepburn...? I didn't know how I felt about it at first, but now I am quite taken by it Smiley

The seconds one..the rest of the pictures didn't work out haha so sorry about that, but this is my take on the spinthread style of necklace. If you haven't seen sinthread's work, its so legit, I realllllllly encourage you to check out her etsy! she is such a talented artist (:

Anyways, thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Janome and I on: June 30, 2010 05:08:29 PM
Hello everyone! I haven't posted any of my projects this spring, so I'm doing a semi mass posting here. this isn't everything I've done this spring, but its all the bottoms, so I suppose that counts.

These two are reinvented curtains:




These two are reconstructed little girls christmas dresses: (everyone knows what im talking about when I say that, right?)



This one isn't reconstructed but I'm a little lazy haha- the inside and the elastic were scraps, and the pretty shimmery stuff I actually bought.

This is just a simple reconstructed skirt:

And these are my you-don't-want-a-round-house-kick-to-the-face-while-I'm-wearin-theses-bad-boys shorts:
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Name that technique! Because im pretty sure its not just called "boob cups". on: March 31, 2010 04:42:40 PM
Hey everyone, lately I've really been digging the style of.. fitted boob cups? It sounds trashy but I'm really not sure what theyre called haha. Its part of the bodice and everything. Here are some pictures, so you know what I'm talking about:

I'm sorry the images arent terribly that great, but I had a difficult time finding them because i didn't know what to call them.

Anyway, Im wondering what is the official name of that look, and more importantly, how would I go about doing it? THANKS EVERYONE XO
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / schtuff- thank you diane b! on: November 05, 2009 03:10:51 PM
Hey everyone, this is a repost that i posted a long while ago. Craftster Diane B pointed out that i might get more views if i had pictures, and now im like a full fledged member, so it will be easier to see everything :]

heres the origonal post, now with pictures <3
So i havent made jewelry in years, and my old art teacher and i recently met up, and she just sparked my creativity. Also, i havent posted enough to be allowed to post pictures yet, im really sorry, because i know it is kind of a pain to have to go to each link. But if you do check them out, please comment, id really appreciate it!
I apologize for the terrible pictures, but my camera isnt working, so i used my web cam haha

I know that should belong in the clothing section because its sort of.. a remodeled t shirt haha but im including it here, because it could be an intense necklace too, right?



This necklace took me all night, and then some. it took alot of wire, patience, and bandaids



These also took a while, and alot of the beads are paper. it was alot of fun!

thanks for looking, please comment <33

6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Home Made Potato Chips on: September 06, 2009 10:31:56 AM
Hey all, this is a wonderful recipe i found in my moms cooking light magazine. They are so delicious and infinitely better than regular potato chips!
This is what you need:
Potatoes
Oil, Like olive
Salt
Cooking Spray

1. Peel potato, and slice. I always use the tomato slicer that comes on most cheese graters, it gives you perfect slices! You can slice them thinner or thicker, it doesnt matter, its just a matter of preference.

2. Lay out a napkin flat, and place all your slices on it. You'll probably need more than one, depending on your potato size. Put another napkin on top and pat slices down. This step isnt totally necessary  but i find that it really increases the quality.

3. Put your slices in a medium bowl, and add oil, just enough to thinnly coat each slice. Add salt as desired.

4. Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray, and arrange as many slices as you can on the plate. Dont let them touch, or else they'll fuse together haha

5. The next part is tricky to get right, because each microwave is different, but i use this rule of thumb..if your chips are thin like standard potato chips, puut them in for 2 minutes, remove, flip them over, and nuke for 1 more minute.

If they are thicker, i usually try three minutes, flip them, and then cook for 2 more minutes.
Its all about experimentation, so if your fist batch doesn't turn out right, you always have more slices to toy with!

When your slices are done, the should look yellow, like normal chips or a bit darker, golden. Thats the color i try to achieve, its so delicious!

Its very best to enjoy your chips hot, but if you used thicker slices, let them cool a few minutes, because they crisp as they cool.

Please let me know if you tried this recipe, and how it turned out! If you need any more pointers, just ask Wink
