I just adore dogs, I find that they enrich life. In fact, all pets enrich life. Smiley

All were painted with acrylics, on white bristol.

44  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Your Favorite T-Shirt Recons? on: September 06, 2012 03:06:59 PM
I've been on a t-shirt surgery inspiration kick lately, started a board on Pinterest of all the lovely recons that I would love to try.
My board --> http://pinterest.com/daytimeheroes/adopt-a-t-shirt/

Totally hit up a thrift shop yesterday, bought a handful of way oversized dirt-cheap shirts in some nice colours/patterns, now just to find the right inspiration!

Show me your faves! Links, photos, Pinterest boards, etc!
Lets make a collection!  Grin

46  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Best places to get cocoa and shea butter? (Online & Real Stores) on: August 22, 2012 01:23:05 PM
My mother and I have found a huge fascination in the art of making cosmetics, body products and the like. For our first experiment we want to try making knock-off LUSH hard massage lotion bars. The recipe requires cocoa and Shea butters.

So my question is, where is the best place to get cocoa and Shea butter, price-wise?
47  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Is it possible to make shoe soles? In any way, shape, or form? on: August 08, 2012 07:51:37 AM
I'm especially looking for a way to create a rubberized splendor mocassins, though any other shoe type is great.

Ideas?
48  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tribal Sundress with Bustier-style bodice on: July 27, 2012 02:53:25 PM




Though I can't take complete credit for the design (as I referenced another dress that I had), I did have to make the pattern myself. I'm pretty happy with this little dress, can't wait to wear it out!

For the fabric, a lovely pale blue cotton with browns and whites in a tribal pattern that I "stole" (she let me have it) from my grandmother's fabric stash. I should have measured the yardage that I took, but I didn't. It was wide enough to wrap around me 1.5 times and was about half way down my shins if I wrapped the fabric around my like a towel (under my arms). I ended up with a piece about 10" by 5". Close call!

Its partially lined (the bodice), and has shirring in the back, so no zipper! My first time shirring. I LOVE IT. Turned out perfectly, and its very comfortable. Super super easy too.

I plan on using this pattern again soon! Can't have too many sundresses!  Cheesy
49  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Ugly $3 Walmart Heels into something Sexy? Need ideas!! <3 on: July 19, 2012 02:30:06 PM




So I found these butt-ugly heels at Walmart for $3. The "Cheap University Student" in me leapt at that price tag, but there is no way in hell that I'm wearing them as-is.

Sooooo..

OUT COME THE SCISSORS!

As you can tell by the photos, they basically look like a rather plain heel design, with a sort of "sleeve". I suppose I could just cut carefully along the line and call 'em done, but who wants to stop at that? Besides, I have a pair of heels already that look similar to that design. Looking for something snazzier.

I love the idea of lace, studs, etc. Maybe a splash of colour somewhere, somehow.  I need inspiration, and input!

I'd love to hear anything you folks have to say!

(Cacti say HI!)
50  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / F-f-f-feathers! Again! on: July 02, 2012 11:22:38 AM

This was a painting I donated for a rather large fishing event, it was a super fancy dinner for all the big-wigs of the fishing world. Aaaand scored myself and my boyfriend free tickets to the event. Ahem, that's right, $150 dinner tix for FREE.
'Tis a walleye


Just another wolf.


My boyfriend is originally from South Africa, he lived there till he was 13. In Africa there is the "Big Five". These are the animals that are considered the hardest to hunt on foot. They are the Black Rhino, the lion, the African Elephant, the Leopard and the Cape Buffalo.



And some foxes.

All of these are painted with acrylics on either peacock wing feathers, turkey wing feathers or turkey tail feathers. All legal, of course.
