1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Bedroom decorating progression! on: July 19, 2006 08:06:35 PM
Well crafty types, here’s the deal… I’m moving once again, and for the first time in 5 years, I’ll have a spot all to my self! This post is to catalogue my adventure in decorating my bedroom Smiley I may post more as I go through the rest of the apartment.

Step one: Daydreaming
Well, I’ve not chosen an apartment yet, but these are the things I know

1)   I can’t (wont) paint the walls. Repainting is a pain. So, I have to learn to live with white walls, and I have to make them look like they’re white on purpose.
2)   The three main functions of the room will be reading (I have many books…), sleeping (duh), and play time *evil*. It has to be designed well to accommodate all of these comfortably.
3)   I have pieces of furniture that I plan to keep, and I need to incorporate around them. Queen sized bed, one side table, antique giant serpentine dresser that needs to be refinished, lots of beautifully framed fine art prints, all in different (and many in antique) gold frames, suede mats, and fillets. Working in a frame shop has its advantages. 
4)   And last, but certainly not least, the budget. I’m setting myself at $150. That’s way low, so I’ll have to be really innovative. I’ll be using as much stuff that I already own, or can nab off the street, as possible. I prefer decorating like this over buying everything new… older materials seem to add comfort to a space.

So! Watch out for updates on the bedroom decorating development!

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Goth Lolita on a swing on: January 23, 2006 08:39:12 AM
This was a little side project of mine last semester, I started and finished her in my entomology lecture hall. I was very happy with the finished product, and even moreso when I had a print made, the colors were amazing. The whole thing started with a pencil sketch, and with lots of time and the help of my wacom tablet, this was the result.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Camo Army Jacket turned skirt on: October 27, 2005 11:24:37 AM
Weee! This is my first post.

This is also my first recon the first time Ive made any thing to wear at all as a matter of fact. Ive decided to start refurbishing my wardrobe, sprucing it up a bit.

I wanted something funky to wear to the Opeth concert a week ago, so I pulled out my old Army jacket, and after some cutting and piecing, made this great little skirt. I wasnt sure how it was going to turn out, the godets were tossed in as an afterthought to make it a little more swishy. No patterns or anything used, just messed with it till it worked. Now, I have to make 2 more, one for my sister, and one for her friend Cheesy

These pics were taken with a camera phone, I'll have better ones as soon as possible.
