1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Charcoal Drawing I did on: April 03, 2009 09:23:08 PM
I did this a month ago when I was stuck in bed with strep throat. My drawings don't turn out looking much like the subject but oh well.  Tongue

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Is This Savagable? on: January 30, 2009 11:00:09 AM
I started this a year ago it was suppose to be a multimedia collage on canvas. The image is a caulk photo transfer which I made the mistake of putting on too large of a canvas for its size. Also there was lettering on the photo which I wasn't able to edit out before the transfer and the lettering also happens to be backward. Is there anything I can do to improve this mess or should I toss it and start from scratch?

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Does body type factor in choosing a costume? on: September 19, 2008 04:05:17 PM
So I really want to be Shaun from the film Shaun of the Dead http://www.peggster.net/photos/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=4&pos=4  but he is a skinny redheaded male while I am a chubby black haired female with C cups.  Should I even bother trying this as a costume?  If so how does one hide the bust? Or should I just opt for a costume more apt for my body type?
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Looking for Mystery Appetizer on: September 02, 2008 03:40:49 PM
I'm looking for a recipe or even just the name of an appetizer I had years ago at a party.  It was (I think) a base of bread or dough with a layer of cream cheese with assorted chopped vegetables on top. I've been searching recipe sites and google but I don't even know what to look for really so if you have any idea what I am talking about let me know.  Wink
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dresden Dolls T Shirt on: May 29, 2008 11:01:00 AM


The front was done with freezer paper and I think I got the stencil from Stencilry.  The back was done with generation tee brand iron on letters which I could have just saved five buckets by doing a freezer paper stencil for but that is hindsight I guess.  Also I didn't realize it at the store but the package didn't contain enough of the letter D so the second D in Dresden is painted on.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Problem with Anarchy Hat on: May 08, 2008 09:05:17 PM
Ok this is the 3rd time I have worked up this flipping hat only to frog it. It is the Anarchy Irony hat from Happy Hooker. The problem is the back seam is turning out all crooked:

On the 4th try I made sure to be super careful about counting stitches and putting my hook in the correct place to start the next round but the same thing is happening.

I didn't know if this should go here or in the Happy Hooker board because its a question not a finished project so I will move it if necessary.
7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Heck of a lot of Hooking on: May 05, 2008 08:04:36 PM
Fitted to be Tied was the first crochet project I did from a pattern over a year or so ago I just got around to taking a photo of. It is lined in black and has a snap closure, in Caron Simply Soft it is too floppy especially the handle:

This is the boy beanie in white:

and in Slytherin colors:

The Skullholders I won't use as a potholder since I tend to catch them on fire so they only have the one side/ply? and no border, might just hang them on the wall:

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Potty Mouthed Cross Stitches on: May 04, 2008 09:45:02 PM
This was inspired by my former job:

From Subversive Cross Stitch:

They are kind of small so I don't know what to do with them to make them displayable.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Out house bookmark on: April 19, 2008 05:44:36 PM
This is a play on the stereotypes of living in a rural Appalachian area of Virginia. Some people think everyone has one in their backyard  Roll Eyes 

the Outhouse Bookmark: 

attached to the ribbon is a Sears catalog (for when tp wasn't available)
