But its my first ever completed knitting project, so I'm proud of myself, ha!
Modeled by my annoyed kitty-
and a semi-action shot-
I actually taught myself how to knit almost 2 years ago, but messed up all of my earlier projects to the point of giving up on them.
The scarf is grey, cheap, itchy acrylic, its about 5 feet long. It actually... (Prepare yourself to be confused by my lack of proper knitting terms!) every other rectangle is 14 rows of knit stitch, then 12 rows of knit, and in between is 2 rows of purl stitch. (I started the scarf to get a hang of purl stitch without getting frustrated too much)
and Im proud of myself for the ruffly bits at the ends, heee.
*Skips off to draws a picture of it with crayons to put on the fridge*
I put a Geek Squad shirt on the back of this obnoxious jacket, and then painted on a bunch of circuit board stuff on it. (And some random geeky... other thing on the back. Lol! I don't really know what it is, was just google imaging random computer-ish words and found it.)
It came in the hugest box, I was so suprised it was for me when I got it. (I dont have any pictures of my the box,cause my mom stoled it to put books in, lol. Our house is a library, but we don't have enough book shelves!)
Note- It was all packaged up so purdy, but I dug into it before I took pictures.
It has the greatest cookies every inside, and they have little candy corns on them (I luvs candy corn!) I was so excited. No pictures of the cookies, cause I forgot to when I took these pictures. And when I was done with pictures I was like, "I can eat the rest of the cookies now!" they're soo good.
A bag full of awesome candy and little halloween rings (that I wore to Halloween Haunt the other night) Me and my boyfriend had fun with all this candy when we were watching movies.
I love the colors she painted the box! I'mma use it to hold buttons. There was tons more candy, but again, the BF stole most of it. And theres a cute little cat lollipop cover, but my mom stole that one, lol!
And heres a better shot of my favorite thing; black horns! I was so excited when I found them in the box, I've wanted some for a really long time.
and the cutest thing-
A little Halloweeny house! (And the chimney arrived just fine) Its got all this black glitter on it, and the first thing my cat did was rub up against it, lol!
Eeee I recieved! Im so excited, since it was coming from Australia to Californa, I thought it would take forever, I was so suprised when it got here today!
I'm so happy, Jane sent me a new bag, which I totally need. (I used to use a Jack Skellington purse forever, but Ive gotten really really annoyed with how much Jack stuff there is out there, it doesnt stand out at all)
I looove it, its so cute, and perfect in size for my camera and wallet and a small water bottle, which is typically all I have. (Sorry if it sounds silly that Hello Kitty isnt as popular as Jack, but the places I go it reaaally is, plus this is so pretty and custom made )
She also made me a Hello Kitty hat! Its totally awesome, especially since I love hats, but they never ever fit me, and this one actually does!
She said, after she made it, she thought I would never wear it, but I totally will, cause its awesome. (I just have to be careful, I have friends who I know will try to steal it, lol)
It looks a little wonky cause' of how Im holding it, but its actually a perfect Hello Kitty face!
I just had this idea, and saw the Button Addict swap thread and was like OH GOODY, but it was for sewing on buttons, but the decorative... pinny-buttons, lol.
I searched it, too, and couldnt find anything. (Let me know if I'm missing it!)
I know theres a decent number of us on here that have our own button presses, are there enough of us in that group who are willing to do a swap? If there are, I'd really like to do a multi-swap partner sort of thing. I looove some of the stuff people put on Etsy, like the cutesy chibi things. I'm assuming some people have different mediums for their buttons, self designed images, fabric, ect. I personally make buttons out of recycled books and mangas...
Let me know if you're out there, button press owners!
Bats Day is a huuuge goth meetup at Disneyland. I loove disneyland, I've had a pass for years, I go alllll the time, even my boyfriend works there, lol. (I'm more of a metal head than I goth, but I do love dressing up)
The dress I made isn't much, but I still like it a lot. I wore a corset over it, which I did not make. I loosely based the dress off of another dress I made using this tutorial- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31949.0 Its pretty much that dress, with a black underskirt. I should have pinned up the top skirt, but sort of made this one at the last minute, since the origonal black one didnt work out. (Measured something wrong, had to salvage it to make the underskirt)
This is the only real full body shot I have, a friend took some, but I dont think she's going to ever remember to send them to me (There is one on some blog that shows my back pretty good, though, lol. But the only good thing about the back of the dress was my wings tattoo shows)
Heres one of me sitting on the floor in Haunted Mansion (My shoes were killing me, so I constantly sat down, lol)
I know its not much, but I like how it came together with my corset and tights. A lot of people complemented me on it, someone even came up, stomped her foot and went "Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, beetlejuice!"
A friend gave me an old laptop to craft something out of. I think the battery is fried, it wont turn on, and I dont have any cords for it. I already have a handful of computers (Because I am a super nerd) and have no need for a third laptop, esspecially an older one like this, lol!
Anyone seen any cool ideas for a laptop like this? I was thinking of making a thin carrying case, but I also don't know how to safely take it apart and stuff, so if anyone has any info on that, either, would be cool.
