1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / home depot urbanoutfitters-ish chain necklaces on: May 30, 2006 10:28:30 AM
okay so my mom is pretty much in love with home depot, and we go there a couple times a week and i've had my eye on some chain there for a long time, but for some reason i never bought any. well yesterday i finally bought some of the chain (at only .44 CENTS PER FOOT) and decided to make me some necklaces.

so i bought about six feet for two necklaces because i like my necklaces real long. the chain was already painted white, but i wanted a red strand so i bought some red spray paint.

this project only took about an hour (it would have taken less if it didn't take so long for spray paint to completely dry) and i'm very happy with the result. i think i remember seeing some necklaces like these in urban outfitters a long time ago, where they sold for around twenty dollars. including the  little clasp mine cost less than two dollars.

2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 8 ENTRIES / carpet padding and washers? a NEW CHECKERS SET! on: December 09, 2005 05:52:06 PM
after traveling to three home depots i finally found this pink carpet padding in stock, and it was only about 4 bucks. so i grabbed it and purchased some washers too for a grand total of 6 dollars and some change.

so basically i cut the pad into a square, and used a cut-up dishwashing sponge to stamp on black acryillic paint. and then i painted half of my washers black to differentiate the two sides.



the finished product


hey, my cat seems to like it!

happy craftinggggg

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / record purse-old idea, modern purse on: July 28, 2005 12:02:06 PM
i was searching craftster one day (whats new) and i saw a record purse like the one i made and it gave me inspiration to make this one. it was kind of time consuming to make but its well worth it.

i haven't really worn this out yet because i just recently made it and so its home is my doorknob on my bedroom door but yeah ill probably start wearing it more when school starts.

the rod stewart side-its really not that lopsided, i guess its just the way i was holding it
