Got my CD from Fraught tonight!!!

Here's what she sent me--two CDs!


The CDs with a cool picture and a cloth cover!


The CDs...


The fabulous songs!


Semi-close-up of the CDs hand-drawn decoration (which the pictures don't show justice of...they're really very cool)

Okay, so thanks a lot to the partners I had who were fantastic, as well as Nushy for organizing.

I opened my package from Porfiry and found this amazing little guy:


Inside was a CD case titled "Porfiry's Jazz Mix" with the quote from Louis Armstrong:  if you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know.


And here's all of the great tracks:


Thanks, Porfiry!  Great job--I love it all and have been listening to this super-cool mix since it arrived.
Props to you too, Nushy, for organizing the swap!

4  Painted shoes! in Shoes: Completed Projects by krajackex on: February 24, 2006 04:12:10 PM
I found these ugly plain white mens shoes at walmart for like four bucks, so I bought them, thinking it could be fun to paint.  I had left over green paint from a different project, so I painted them both green around stars that I drew in with pencil.




As you can see, the pencil grid I drew (to help me draw the star outlines evenly) showed through the green paint.  Oh well.  They're still fun to wear.

So this is my naturally curly hair.



When I was younger I had almost straight hair--really nice hair, in fact--but when I turned twelve or so it began to become curly until how it is now.


And this is me with an origami hat.


Me playing the sax...



I have wanted to dye it, but I was always sort of afraid that was something that only people with straighter hair can get away with, alas.

6  A stuffed blue bunny! ...Kinda in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by krajackex on: December 16, 2005 05:19:41 PM
My first attempt at a stuffed animal.  I had this great really soft bright blue fleece fabric, and wanted to make something.  Anyway, I sort of made it up as I went along, and it turned itself into a rabbit.  And I gave him a nose, but he's got no eyes yet.  Anyway.  So yeah.




Fine.  So he doesn't really look like a rabbit... Oh well.  It was something to do, and since I was bored, it was fun.  He's a rabbit to me, so I named him Frank.

I just finished tonight- sorry about the dark pic, but I couldn't wait to post!.



You can't really tell, but the legs are now "chrome", not brown. And the glue isn't completely dry yet, which you  can see in the bottom pic. I'm pretty tickled!
Looks great.  My question is how would that hold up to a little water?  My thinking is that if you used that idea on a kitchen table, food or water is likely to get spilled on the table a bit every now and then.

8  Wicked--a tote bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by krajackex on: October 09, 2005 04:46:14 PM
I've seen lots of Rent related items here, but I've hardly seen anything Wicked related, so I'm posting my tote bag.  Basically, I'd never used our sewing machine before, but I wanted to learn.  I thought a tote bag was the easiest thing to make that was practical as well for my first time, and since I was going to the national tour or Wicked at the end of the week (I just got back, it was great) I thought I'd make it Wicked themed.  The pictures are a little big; my apologies.  Here it is:


Sewn with black duck canvas, painted with acrylic paints mixed with fabric medium.


A close up of Glinda


And the inside, sort of a lime suede.

These pictures don't really show the color very well though.  For instance, Elphaba's lips on the bag are actually sort of a bright red on the bottom and a light coat of the red at the top like they're supposed to be.  You just can't tell Smiley  I actually found fabric of the exact same shade of green as on the real Wicked picture at Hobby Lobby, and I found the perfect green paint at Walmart.  They just look sort of dull and weird on the pictures.

I made it based on the Wicked logo/poster/cover picture:

Anyway, that's it.
