1  (Mostly) fabric brooch funtimes in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bohemia on: August 03, 2014 01:53:06 AM
This is my first post here for many, many years, but the urge to craft is bubbling up within me once again, so here we go.  I've recently become very fond of Daiso, the wonderful 100 yen shop (or $AUD 2.80) that rudely opened in Brisbane, Australia while I was on the other side of the planet.  Now that I'm back I'm taking full advantage, and I'm particularly fond of the little kits they sell for covering buttons (this blogger in Singapore shares my enthusiasm: http://www.theperfectximperfection.com/2012/07/diy-how-to-make-your-own-button-with.html).

However!  I am all about brooches, and it occurred to me that delicately yanking out the bit of wire that turns these into a button would mean a nice flat surface that I could use to glue on a brooch backing.  So...I did.  Quite pleased with what happened to the handful of fabric scraps I turned into brooches.  I also picked up a few novelty erasers at Daiso (they're wee Japanese crisps!) that I thought would look adorable as brooches to sass up my cardigans.  A wooden button got the brooch treatment too, and while I had the glue out I thought it would only be sensible to stick some googly eyes onto earring backs.

Not bad for a Sunday afternoon!

2  Keep Calm & Carry On - Rasterbated Poster in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by bohemia on: April 20, 2007 11:27:00 AM
I was rasterbating in our bedroom and look what I got all over the walls...(sorry, my mind is always in the gutter.)



Excuse the mess!  You may have seen the image before, it's from a British wartime poster (ww2, I think) advising the citizens to go about their business as usual.  Stiff upper lip and all that.  I thought this would be more visually effective than a smaller reprint of one of the posters, and probably cheaper.  The boy and I live in a white, white, white apartment and whilst I dream of a feature wall in bright red I have to content myself with random stuff on the walls for now.

Thanks for looking and for putting up with lack of maturity over the word 'rasterbation'.

3  I've been rasturbating with S&M office girls - or - stuff on my door in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by bohemia on: April 20, 2007 07:18:30 AM
So I finally got in on this rasterbation lark all the hip young kids are talking about  Grin

Behold my bedroom door!



Of course, once I started, I just couldn't stop rasterbating!  Expect more posts and more awful innuendo soon.  I am immature.

4  Behold the awesome majesty of THE SHARK CAKE in Dessert by bohemia on: April 18, 2007 02:45:57 AM
Last year, I made my darling boyfriend an MX5 cake in honour of his love for fast cars (you can see it here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129745.0).  Of course, I had to top it this year with a cake based on one of his other loves - sharks!  (He loves diving.)  No, I am not dating James Bond.

So may I present...SHARK CAKE '07.  (I secretly decided his name was Senor Bob Sharkito.  This is because I am strange.)



Note the jam blood.

And from above...


Yeah, he looks sort of like an aeroplane.  Anyway, Senor Bob Sharkito was a grand success and the boy was very pleased.

What on earth am I going to make next year?

5  Hama (Perler) Bead Super Mario Wall! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by bohemia on: October 30, 2006 10:40:51 AM
Hama beads are one of my obsessions, and lately I've been making figures based on video game sprites from the Super Mario games.  Using a few of these I made a mural of sorts.  I stuck them on with double sided tape.  The pictures are a bit crap as the lighting's not great, but I  just finished and couldn't wait until morning.

It's-a me, Mario!



The ikea brochure in which I live (together with the ultimate in scandinavian design...my very own scandinavian) with swanky new mario wall art...



Let me know what you think, guys.  I'm pretty excited about it Smiley

6  MX5 (Miata) Cake for car-loving boyfriend in Dessert by bohemia on: October 27, 2006 04:23:03 PM
So it was my beloved's 24th birthday and he's very keen on cars - especially the mazda MX5 (aka a Miata in the US).  He had one but it had to be sold as we were in Australia at the time and the car was in Norway Sad . So, on his birthday, I made this cake in honour of Maxine, his beloved little red car.  I hope she found a nice new home.

He really, really liked the cake by the way.








Go, car, go!

Let me know what you think.

7  Leisure Suit Larry - in Hama/Perler Beads in Completed Projects by bohemia on: October 11, 2006 08:47:07 AM
Okay, they're actually Hama-esque beads that I got at Ikea (you can get an enormous jar for some ridiculously cheap price).  I made Leisure Suit Larry, who now adorns my bedroom wall (boom-chicka-boom).



I'm obsessed with Hama beads!  I need help.

8  Boring Ikea Candle Holders Get a Makeover in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bohemia on: October 11, 2006 08:31:45 AM
So, I had a few very boring plain glass tealight candle holders from Ikea (a place with which I have a very complicated love/hate relationship).  My lifelong quest is to find things to which I can stick little flat marbles with pictures attached to the base (I wish I had a less clumsy way of describing them) and the candle holders were a perfect candidate.  I made two, and here they are.







By the way, I've discovered a great place to find little images to stick to flat marbles - ads for mobile phone wallpaper and game downloads in magazines.  I got some fabulous images like the space invaders logo and a care bear.  If you're prepared to endure the compulsory cutsey images of iddle biddy puddy cats and pixelated sexy tetris then it's a great source.

Fabulous little flat marbles plus James Bond comic plus red paint plus picture frame equals a crafty present!  What do you think?

10  Nasty scuffle with bouncer = lovely pillow! (WARNING! daggy photo ahead) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bohemia on: May 07, 2005 05:25:29 AM
So my loveable part-time hooligan of a boyfriend had a bit of an altercation with a nasty bouncer when Strung Out came to our city...and his favourite shirt was badly torn.  Luckily (sort of), the bouncer grabbed him by the back of his shirt and it tore mostly on the seams.  To console him, I made this pillow...I hope he gets into lots more fights so that I can make more.  Sort of.
