1  Spray paint over painted shoes? in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by LoveNTheOcean on: September 16, 2012 11:03:47 AM
I bought these booties a while a go and haven't really wore them, & I've been wanting yellow shoes, so I decided to paint them. Far away, the look great, but up close it looks like it needs a more layerf of paint & I've painted them 4 or 5 times. I feel like if I give it more coats it will become really stiff?

I was wondering if I could spray paint over them or should I just continue painting?

BTW: That is blue tape on the bottom. So that paint is not on the sole.

If there is already a post answering this question please let me know!

Thanks in advance.

2  Ol' 90's Jumper ---> Fringe Vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LoveNTheOcean on: July 11, 2012 10:09:32 PM
"Shoplifting" in my Grandmother's closet, I found a big ol' 90's lookin' jumper.
The memories of putting on denim jumpers when I was a little kid made me cringe.
I still don't understand how people didn't throw tomatoes or shoes at me. The way jumpers looked then was just...ew.
But when I saw it, I immediately imagined what I could turn it into. I stuffed it in my hobo bag and ran away.
Got home, cut it, sewed it to fit my ribcage, and slapped on fringe. BAM!

The original image was after I cut and sewed. I was too impatient to wait, but you get the picture of how ugly it was.

PS: Yes, I asked my Grandmother if I could have her jumper. Stealing is wrong kids, even from familia.
QUESTION: I think I should change those buttons. Where can I find some tack buttons? What color/style? Suggestions?  Huh Thanks!

3  Africanesque Dress & Skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LoveNTheOcean on: July 15, 2011 03:54:52 PM
Well, well, I love these two clothing items I just reconstructed!

This dress was originally a very strange big puffy "pilgrimy" dress made with African batik fabric (I think). It originally was my Aunt's and I told her that she looked as if she belonged with Amish folks, lol. After we both chuckled, she stripped it off and handed it over to me and told me to make something. And this is what turned out! I would wear this for the rest of my life if I could..still looking sane.

This "paper bag skirt" was originally a green-white African fabric wrap around skirt. The outfit was a size large...in children clothing, so I couldn't really use it to wrap around my wide-ranging waist. Lol. So I decided to cut it out and make the "paper bag skirt". And with the little scrap fabric that was left, I decided to make a rope for different things.

I love these two items so much although I'm not a fan of African fabric. You?

4  How to get these jewels off? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by LoveNTheOcean on: April 20, 2011 01:31:24 PM
I stole my mothers stretchy pants and sewed them for my size and love them, but unfortunately, they have an ugly jewel thing on the bottom of one of the legs.
I don't want it on there, how do I get it off?
I believe it is an iron-on, but the pants were bought like that, so not sure?

5  Dye Skirt to Sac Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LoveNTheOcean on: April 01, 2011 02:48:31 PM
I'm sure all of you have seen those Tie Dyed Skirts in the stores for about $20.
Well luckily, my cheapskate self found one in a thrift store.
With it's amazing colors, I bought it and knew there was something I could do with it.
I've seen the Le Sac dresses and thought this skirt would be perfect to make it with...and I did.
I got a word for American Apparel: Thank you. You've saved me $35.  Grin
To the dress!

I like. You?

6  Sunhats! (gigantuous images) in Crochet: Completed Projects by LoveNTheOcean on: March 26, 2011 11:06:40 AM
First off, the pictures suck. Taking pictures on MacBook without direct lighting is...well, terrible.
Anyhow, these hat are quite simple, but the yarn choice was stupid on my part. :/
Whatever. I can't wait to wear them in the summer. I think I'll make more with raffia yarn though.
If you can think of any other stiff-ish comfortable yarn for the head, lemme know.

7  Oh my gee, it's Onigiri! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by LoveNTheOcean on: January 27, 2011 09:44:53 PM
When I was younger I always wished I were an Asian woman who knew how to cook because of my love for Asian food. Thai food, Vietnamese food, Chinese food, Japanese food, whatever, I love it. I usually only buy Asian food already cooked because I always think that I can never make such amazing food with my own two hands...but that changed today. Luckily, I had some ingredients in my kitchen, and decided to try and make some onigiri. Here. It. Is.  Cheesy

What I used:
Calrose rice (sticks together great!)
White vinegar (didn't have rice vinegar Sad)
Imitation Crab
Cream Cheese
Toasted Seaweed

I love making them because I can put as much filling as I want, unlike the restaurants.
So easy to make and delicious!
If I can make them, so can you!  Cheesy

9  The Light White Halter Dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LoveNTheOcean on: July 26, 2010 02:01:44 PM
It's a light comfortable fabric. Very wrinkly, but I love it. I wonder what the fabric is intended "FOR"...I have no idear. Incredibly easy to make.
When I make my next one the "bra cups" will be smaller.....I made them too big for the cardboard chest.  Angry
It's long just how I like it.  Smiley
Next time I'm going to "finish my seams"...I'm just too lazy....please tell me I'm not alone!  Cheesy

Until next time  Wink...

10  Freakin' Delicious Granola Bars! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by LoveNTheOcean on: June 24, 2010 08:39:49 PM
So, I am a college student taking a summer class and I am insanely LAZY when it comes to preparing food....especially breakfast.
With a three hour class to go to, I drag myself out of bed and just go to school.....starving. So instead of staring at the refrigerator every morning and shrugging my shoulders...deciding to starve, I've decided to make something I could just grab and go every morning. GRANOLA BARS! Cheesy

These things are so effin' delicious....that I'm giving you all the recipe!
NOW..this is NOT aka "MY" recipe. I got it online, but do not follow it exactly. I will give the link below.

1) GET the ingredients!
Which are: 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
               1 cup all-purpose flour
               1 teaspoon baking soda
               1 teaspoon vanilla extract
               1/2 cup butter, softened
               1/2 cup honey
              1/3 cup packed brown sugar
              AND WHATEVER YOU LIKE!!! I just throw in chocolate chips, raisins, dried cherries, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, dried mango, and chopped walnuts!

2) MIX that stuff up in a bowl!
No, no. You better not lick that damn spoon!

3) PRESS that delicious mix in a pan!
Okay, okay, maybe you can get a lick.  Cheesy I put my mixture in a butter sprayed "glass pan" (?). I hate stuff sticking.

4) BAKE at 325 degrees F for 18-22 minutes.
I do 22 mins of course.
5) TAKE out and let cool for 10 minutes, then cut into bars.
I use a pizza cutter.

6) ENJOY!  Grin
WAIT, don't throw those crumbs away that are left in the pan...make cereal! Just add some milk!  Wink
Hope you love 'em as much as me!

This is the original recipe. I use less butter and don't use as many chocolate chips...I think 2 cups of chocolate chips is insane. That's just me.
