51  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / pudding cups + christmas lights = pretty pretty lights -updated and image heavy- on: July 26, 2005 01:08:07 AM
Okay so I came up with this idea one day when someone asked what they could do with pudding cups. I spray painted some pudding comes and poked a hole in the end with an ice pick and then I strung Christmas lights through them. It was a really simple process and I love the outcome. You could always decorate your pudding comes with drawings, sequins, rhinestones, whatever you wanted really. Well here are some pictures, these were taken in the dark to give the 'full effect' Enjoy!













And a few close ups...not too good but the best I could do.




Okay well anyhow, as always, comments are appreciated. =) I hope you like them as much as I do. If anyone wants/needs a full tutorial I'd be more than willing to write one out. Well thanks for looking. <3


! New pictures !
In the light, not too good but enough where you can tell.






52  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my very first book purse(s) - image heavy on: July 23, 2005 03:56:31 PM
Okay so I jumped on the bandwagon and made a book purse. The sides are extremely hard so don't even ask me how I did them because I'm not really sure myself. My first is so horrible. If you saw the inside in person you would probably freak out, yeah that bad. I didn't really sew it so yeah I don't know it's really hard to even tell you what I did. Well I just took some fabric I had around the house, it doesn't match but I really don't care. Oh these are some Readers Digest books that I had that are dated anywhere from 67-83. So I don't know about these but they're really old, hah. Okay well here they are.
The first purse -






And the second, a lot better and my favorite of the two -






By the way I hand sewed them and it's obvious but I really don't care. Oh and sorry for the crappy pictures I would take better but my camera is acting up so I don't know.

Tell me what you think.
Thanks for looking.
<3

Oh I forgot to mention I haven't thought of an idea for closing it. Does anybody have one because I'm completely out of ideas. And I do not intend to sew any more fabric, haha so yeah that probably limits it down but yeah. Thanks again.
53  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / A going away present for a really great friend. -help me!!- on: July 13, 2005 03:49:07 PM
What about "going away in a box" ?

I wouldn't mind making this for a friend of mine. I want it to be thoughtful and caring and something she'll remember. She's really prone to just messing stuff up or tearing stuff apart or like coloring on stuff and yeah you get the point. Well she use to be I haven't noticed it much in her lately so maybe not. Hah, I don't know. Well anyhow I want it to be a way for her to remember me with some goodies. I mean yeah I could put a picture of me in there and some old ones taken with us but I only have one so I don't know. Does anyone have any ideas? I've known her for three years and she's moving to Washington DC. I live in Georgia btw so that's really far away. So yeah.

Thanks, for any ideas you come up with. =)
I really want this to be special and I really need you guys help.
Oh and did I mention she's moving in the first week of August or possibly sooner?
Yeah so I don't have much time but some.
Oh and I can't sew very well, it'd have to be done by hand.
But any other crafty ideas are welcome.
Thanks again.
<3
54  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / safety pin bracelet -updated- on: July 01, 2005 06:13:59 PM
This is my safety pin bracelet.
It was really easy to make.
I'm sure you all know how.
I simply took seed beads of random colors and beaded them onto the safety pins.
I then flip flop strung them onto elastic string.
In other words I'd string the top of one then the bottom and so on.
I did this on both ends and then tied it and there you go.

Oh and I took a better picture because the other ones sucked.
lol.



Thanks for looking. <3
55  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my first three pair of earrings -updated- on: July 01, 2005 06:02:49 PM
These are all gifts for a friend and all my firsts so any constructive criticism is welcome and compliments as well.
Sorry for the quality and I can't take pictures worth anything either so yeah, ha.

The first pair - Army men




The second pair - Glow in the dark stars




The third pair - Monkeys from monkeys in a barrel




Do you guys think she'll like them? I know they should be nice and pretty but she's not much for that kind of stuff so I just made things that I thought she would like.
Thanks for looking.
<3


Oh and btw for those of you who are wondering, she loved them. Although that night she wore the army men ones and then we were running around and the army man fell off. =( I felt bad. But I guess it was nice that she liked them.

57  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Earring displaying for birthday present -- help! on: June 30, 2005 04:49:53 AM
I plan on giving my friend some earrings I've recently made for her birthday.
Well I just can't figure out a way to give them to her, like present them, ya know?
I mean I can't just put em in a bag and hang them to her. lol.
Well I was wondering if any of you have any ideas as to what I would put them in/on.
Oh and I might make some little hair clips and I don't know how to do those either.
And along with that I don't how to present some marble magnets I'll be giving her.
Oh and I have about 75 pictures cut out, so I don't think an altoid can would work...
lol.
Well thank you guys for all the ideas, I can't wait.
Oh and her birthday thing is July 3rd.....
<3
58  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Any other ideas for marble magnets besdies well, magnets or bracelets? on: June 29, 2005 06:49:00 AM
So I plan on making some marble magnets for a friend of mine for her birthday.
I have cut out about 75 pictures already, no telling which ones will work and all but yeah.
Then I got to thinking okay, who honestly needs 75 magnets with cute little pictures?
Sure they'd be totally cute and all but really would she need them?
I think not.
So this brings me to my next conclusion...
Does anyone have any ideas on things to use marble magnets for?
I mean something I could give her, not something like gluing them onto a table or something.
Her birthday party is going to be held on July 3rd, so yeah.
But I'm open for more suggestions past this time, ya know for the future.

Oh and btw I'm not sure if this fits here, so if not, sorry.

Well thank you all and I'm dying to hear the ideas you guys come up with.
59  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / birthday present ideas for a friend - help! on: June 27, 2005 10:51:24 PM
Okay so my friends birthday is coming up. The party is going to be on July 3rd, to be exact. I haven't the slightest clue as to what to get her/make her. I normally give her the usual 'bath' kind of stuff but I'm thinking since she's pretty much my best friend and I never plan what I'm going to give her, I will. So any ideas would be helpful.

- She'll be turning 15
- I never get to see her, except sometimes on weekends
- She's my best friend
- She hangs out with a whole lot of people
- She's into hardcore and metal
- I believe her favorite color is pink
- She isn't too much of a girly girl
- I guess you could call her a punk/goth....idk
- We always watch movies when we go to her house, but I wouldn't want to get her a movie
- She likes Buffy, but then again I wouldn't want to get her like the series thing
- We go swimming all the time
- She's down to earth
- She's not much of a crafty person, or from what I know
- She's always up for a good time
- Uh yeah, maybe that's enough to help you guys

Well thanks for helping me out. =)

Oh and by the way if you suggest something for me to make, just remember I don't have access to a sewing machine, so I can only do hand sewing. And I'm probably going to be using my moms money so I don't want to go 'all out' if you get what I'm saying, well thanks again. <3
60  Georgia / Georgia: Southwest / Anyone know any good places to go thrift shopping in Valdosta? on: June 10, 2005 05:06:26 PM
Hey!
I've always wanted to go thrift shopping but haven't found any places around to go shopping. It really sucks. I guess I'm just unlucky to live in a boring place like this. Well anyway if anybody could help me with this, that'd be great. For those of you who don't know where Valdosta is it's almost in Florida. I'd say 30 mins tops, depending on where you're coming from. Well anyway, thanks. =)
