633  Re: Decorate my house room by room craft-a-long in Craftalongs by sweets4ever on: March 12, 2007 05:15:58 AM
I don't have recent before pictures, but here are some older before pix...

To get the full effect, take those pictures and then cover the drafting table with supples - I mean, mountain it with supplies to a ridiculous level that nothing could be found and you feared entering the room due to possible avalanche.  The cover the floor with supplies due to lack of storage space/the table already being full. Cheesy

Here's the after: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=155821.0

Some traditional stampers don't show their stamps, but...well...I'm not one of those people. Cheesy  I think it's neat to relate the people who have been to logs before you. Smiley

Here's mine:

Here's my fiance's (mr.sweets4ever):

They're about the same size, I just resized the pix differently when I cropped them.  I made them both from Pink Pearl erasers & an Exacto knife. Cheesy  We haven't stamped anywhere yet, but hopefully someone will recognize us in the future! Grin

Justin & I flew to Boston over the weekend to surprise Leah at Magpie's grand opening of the new location.  Here's Leah & I in the store... Smiley

Of course, I had to sport traditional Craftster swag on the surprise mission! Grin

636  Re: Finally put my art room together! (img hvy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: March 02, 2007 04:31:33 PM
i am so times infinity impressed. i especially like the paint buckets. and converting the closet into a lizard habitat is a great idea- i bet it would work well for birds, too. i would suggest using a fan too when you use stinky stuff- unless you seal his habitat, the stuff will get in there for sure.
maybe one day i will have such a fabulous crafty room.

Awe...thanks so much! Smiley

I like the paint cans because they aren't expected.  I have a tabletop lamp that I think I'm going to hang from the ceiling in the one corner.  It's obviously not meant to be hung from the ceiling, but I think it will look neat!  It will be above where the tissue paper rack is.  I used to have a tall floor lamp there, but I don't want anything else on the floor than already is in there.  I'll start to feel cramped!

I open the window & use a fan there when I'm doing stinky stuff.  The room is always pretty hot because of his heat lamps, so opening the window a bit doesn't even phase the temp. Cheesy  I heard him sneeze once (SO cute!) and I knew it was time to vent the room out more...heh.

Here's photos of the inside...we have a smaller guy in there now.  We did the cage a few years ago.  I painted the back wall and we did the ladder, shelving, doors (they used to be louvered), lighting in the ceiling, etc.

The room was a nursery previously.. I had Winnie the Pooh murals painted on the walls. Cheesy  I'm headed out, but I'll post pix when I get home.  It was VERY different!

637  Finally put my studio/art/craft room together! (img hvy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: March 02, 2007 01:24:09 PM
I've always had a studio/art/craft room, but I had a HUGE drafting table, so it basically filled the whole room and became a mountain of supplies. Wink

I emptied the whole room out & started fresh!  I gave away tons of supplies on Freecycle this week.

The paint is "suede" by Sherwin-Williams - http://www.sherwin-williams.com/do_it_yourself/painting_techniques/faux_painting_process/softsuede/ and the ceiling is dark grey, which apparently is creepy to some people. Cheesy

We're going to put a small futon on the right wall, but haven't found "the perfect one" yet.

Standing in the doorway.

Wall to the right.

I have a horrible habit of buying tissue paper all the time.  I used 4 dowel rods & 2 plant hangers to make a rack.  If I can see what I have at all times, I'm less inclined to purchase more. Cheesy

I used wire building cube storage racks from Meijer to store supplies.  I swear they are like Legos & Lincoln Logs for adults - too much fun. Grin

Corner to the left.

I mounted the "workspace" shelves at all different heights, but they are all fitted to my posture and the adjustable drafting chair.  I have a bad back, so this was VERY important.

The room is pretty small, so I used 1 quart paint cans to hang supplies/tools I use often...from the ceiling.

I used 1 gallon paint cans from Home Depot to hold supplies on the wall.  Well...and my favorite penguins. Wink

Back corner.

I share my space with our pet lizard, Clinton (we made the closet into his habitat).

When I'm using spray adhesives or anything with an odor, I use the shower curtain to block most of the fumes from Clinton.  I like to think he really appreciates my efforts. Cheesy Grin

Craftster code is set to allow max. 500 wide images so that the forum is easily viewable by the majority of resolutions.  It will resize any images to max. 500 wide whether they are hosted here or externally.

Here's how you can make an image link to the larger version (such as above):

Edit:  Bon was typing while I was...so yeah... Wink
Bon, use the "Insert Code" button to avoid having to add the extra spaces, too! Smiley

Here's pix of what the lovely Ms. Lelila sent me!!  She sent a long time ago, I've just been catching up on taking photos this weekend... Smiley

Everything!  An AWESOME bag (detailed photos below), a photo frame with a bicycle chain attached (ahh!! cool!), a stencilled camera t-shirt and 5 of the best photos ever... Grin

A closeup of the camera on the t-shirt!

Inside the bag!
There are straps on both sides to hold film canisters...pockets & magnetic clasp, too!
I reallly like the fabric she used for this! Smiley

The five photos - I love, love, love Chihuly and was thrilled when I opened the envelope to find these gorgeous photos.
I asked her if she could e-mail them to me so I could blow them up huge and have them framed for our office wall...the colors are amazing.
The boat is my favorite!

Vanillaxlight sent me a super surprise package!! Grin Grin Grin  I've been going through a really rough time in life right now and it was like a big bundle of handcrafted cheer in a box.  I can't thank her enough...

I lost my favorite scarf the very first night I wore it and she made me one to replace it!
Same colors & everything!

I had a rainbow scarf on my Wists and she made it...but she crocheted it in some whacky crazy Tunisian way, so it looks knit.
CRAZY, I tell you!
I had this on there as a "Yeah, I'll add this, but it's a big old hope 'cause I don't think anyone will ever make it for me" item! Cheesy

A beautiful crocheted bracelet in two sizes of red, glass beads and two sizes of black, crystals.
I love it down to the pretty clasp!

MAGAZINE beads with a soda pop top clasp!
This is so funky cute it hurts.

A ton of goodies!
Stitch & Bitch, a turtle who's gonna grow super big for me, shrinky dink magnets and a tin with even more in it!, a pack of beautiful birdie buttons & a cookie cutter!

ANNDDDdd... a shrug by Happy Hooker.  She thought it might be too small, but it's not at all - it's perfect & SO cute!  I love that it's in white 'cause it'll match so many tops.
