Hello! It has been waaay too long since I last posted here. I used to make lots of recons but recently I've been focusing on my burlesque costumes, so I thought I'd share my latest creations. Nothing spectacular, but fun and I need to keep upping my ante. I love seeing costumes and how creative this community is.
My crafty prowess usually resides in clothing, but I will be getting a new apartment in a month that has gorgeous bay windows and a little deck, so I would like to do some container gardening.
I am also writing an article about container gardening and window planting for new gardeners like me.
Does anyone have any special tips on getting started (specifically for Chicago or colder weather areas), any horrendous mishaps I can avoid? Any help would be appreciated and if I use your advice in the story I will credit you.
I don't think anybody's done this so I am giving some ideas and resquesting some ideas from those who know better than I.
So my birthday's the 11th (Valentine baby) and I do have a valentine, but am a bit bored with the traditional fare. So in lieu of this, I want to have a 'broken-heart' Valentine themed party for my birthday. The crafting won't be extensive, considering its a week away and that before long everyone will be drunk and not care (it's my 21st).
So here are some elements:
I'm going to make 'party favors' with candy hearts and kid's card valentines, but on the inside instead of names it will say "You stink," "Loser" etc.
We're going to watch zombie porn (Re-Penetrator, because we're weird and its kind of a romantic antithesis)
Going to buy cheap valentine's decor from Target and break the stringed hearts in half or paint some of it black.
Oh, and the cake my friend is making is a 'naked lady' cake (cut to a female form, with snowballs for boobs, toasted cocnut down below, and split cherries for nipples)
Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'll post pictures after the day, thanks!
This is my first stencil! Well, actually I made another one first, but I gave it away to its recipient before I had my digital camera. So here's another gift for a friend, he's obsessed with Mystery Science Theatre Three Thousand so here's my take:
The front close up. This is how the three sit during the movies if you've never seen the show
The back with the show's moniker They're a little fuzzy, sorry, and the paint bled a little, but I'm happy for a first start
I recently became the new owner of a pair of free antique round end tables and an old ugly dresser. I am wondering what to do with them and am thinking of maybe a PinUp theme, like a picture on the tops of the end tables and a series or large picture on the top of the dresser with some sort of decoration on the drawers.
So the questions remain; what color would be suitable for the tables and/or dresser. I'm moving these into a new apartment so I don't already have any color schemes, but I'm planning on painting one of the walls red.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
Oh and does anybody know where to find cheap PinUp pictures? The only collections I've found are like $30.
I've been a crafster stalker for a while now and have finally summoned the courage to post a project.
My boyfriend's birthday was at the end of July and we've been together for almost a year so I wanted to make something homey and fun. So I made us matching stuffed monsters (really I just fell in love with his and so had to make one for me) and a nintendo belt buckle.
Special thanks to Nina for getting me started on my monsters!
This is Hermes, my boyfriend's companion
And Henrietta, for moi
The happy couple, I know they're a little snaggled toothed, but I love them.
Aand the belt, sorry its a little screwy
So yay for my first post, but definitely not my last.
