151  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Sci-Fi Greg tee... first attempt! on: September 04, 2005 08:37:29 PM
So I wandered onto the lovely stenciling board one day, saw how cool it was and how many possibilities were now spread open before me, and I just had to try it.  But what to stencil....?  Enter the wonders of homestarrunner.com and the ever fabulous Teen Girl Squad.  Add the fact that my boyfriend is a nerd, and we get the following:




That's right, my boyfriend is now in possession of his very own Sci-Fi Greg stenciled t-shirt.  Which he has indeed worn in public.   Smiley

(A slight explanation of Sci-Fi Greg:  http://homestarrunner.com/tgs9.html  When it says "it's over!", click the 'o'.)

I received my "craft crap" (though it is anything but) from Topolino.  Quite a while ago actually.  I'm a slacker.  Anyway, here are pics of my fabulous loot:

Ribbon, stamps, buttons, leather, other stuff, and 16 different kinds of embossing powder!  Woo!  I've never used it before, but I've always been intrigued by it...

All kinds of stickers, paper photo frames, and funky marbled construction paper:

More stickers, some tissue paper, some scrapbooking paper...

And more scrapbooking paper, which I just love!

Yes, one crafter's trash is certainly another crafter's treasure.  I love this stuff, and I'm excited to craft with it.  Thank you, Topolino!

hi, i'm qwerty, and i'm a swapaholic

Hi, qwerty.   Wink

Yes, I am soooo excited.  An HP Swap has been on my to do list since... well, since I joined Craftster in May.   Smiley   This should be a ridiculous amount of fun.

I just got my Back to School stuff from BadKittyUSA33!  I'm so impressed.  She found argyle for me!   Grin  

I got an argyle spiral notebook (the inside covers are all decorated with stickers!), some mini highlighters, a whole bunch of personalized pencils, and the best part, a completely awesome pencil pouch made out of argyle socks, and another pair for me to wear!  Yay!!



Pencil pouch:

Thanks so much, BadKittyUSA33!!  

Now let's see everyone else's stuff!   Wink
155  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Crewel Bag on: August 18, 2005 09:57:14 AM
Earlier this summer I decided that I wanted to try out crewel embroidery.  So I found a cute little kit at the Salvation Army and proceeded to make it.  When I was finished, I thought "Well that's nice.  Now what?"  So I decided to turn it into a purse, which, btw, I'm rather proud of.



It's lined and closes with a snap.



I was going to keep it, but then I decided that I don't need another bag, and I have to support my crafting habit somehow.   Cry   I will miss it.

Hmm... This could be an interesting one.  I currently reside in Norman, OK, and consider it my home.  Sadly, I can't stand football.  Lucky me.   Roll Eyes   I'm completely head-over-heels in love with Vancouver, British Columbia.  Although with school starting up soon, I'm not sure swaps are the best idea for me right now.  Still thinking...

I love argyle, I wish it were the new black, and I have a problem with having to buy anything I see it on.  This is completely awesome, especially considering I don't knit.  DIY argyle.  I like it.  I like it a lot.
158  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Re: Mailbox Mailbox on: July 22, 2005 08:09:31 AM
That is absolutely adorable.  Yeah, I'm almost 21, but I've definitely got a Blue's Clues t-shirt.  That I wear.  In public.   Grin   

That is such a great idea, and so obvious (a Mailbox mailbox...imagine that), but I never would have thought of it.  Makes me wish 1) I owned my house instead of renting and 2) I had a curb-side mailbox instead of the one attached to my porch.
159  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: July 21, 2005 07:33:17 AM
I work at a shop that makes sports jerseys and things, so I'm always sewing at work (which is actually how I got over my fear of sewing machines...).  I had been working there for almost a year with no major injuries, but I knew my time was coming.  Sure enough, one day I was sewing a routine jersey number, and the needle went through my left pointer finger, from top to bottom on the inside edge.  It missed the nail (thank goodness!), and it was so close to the edge that you could see the trail where the needle went.  It was all so fast I didn't even realize what had happened at first.  It kinda hurt, but it wasn't that bad.  And the needle broke, so we decided that I won.   Grin

Hey, me too!  Yep, I also opened the post and said "Hanson?"  That's aweomse.  The official shirts are so expensive!  I might just have to take that stencil and run with it.   Cheesy
