11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old jeans + me = omgzz <3 on: November 19, 2005 08:20:31 AM
Okay so I had some old jeans and I decided that I wanted to "funkify" them for my fashion show. So it was quite simple, I started by making them into capris, and then got my seam ripper and tore the life out of them. Then I had some metal studs and decided to make a question mark near the pocket, and I painted on some more question marks and stars on the other side. I like the way they turned out!! Cheesy

They are a bit big for me but hey they're still good.
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Winter Beercap Picture frame (with tutorial and pics!) on: November 19, 2005 07:40:50 AM
I was just watching an episode of "Craft Corner Deathmatch" when I got super inspired to make something for the winter holidays. I was looking in my basement and I found all these beercaps and I really wanted to make something out of them! So I finally found something perfect - A plain wooden picture frame! Now, it would be pretty fun to just glue them on and just leave it, right? Well, you could if you wanted to. I just decided to take it a step further, I guess...
1. Glue on beercaps to frame with a hot glue gun (well duh.)

2. Take it outside and spraypaint it silver.

3. Paint on whatever you want onto the beercaps (you could even paint on your own fake beer names if you want!) in this case I did stars and snowflakes.

4. Let dry and give to co-workers or friends!

Please excuse my crappy job on painting, my brushes are not very good quality.... Undecided
13  COOKING / Dessert / Shark Cake! My very first post :) on: November 19, 2005 06:01:44 AM
Well, it was my sister's birthday around a year ago (haha) and my mom and we found really cool recipe scans from a really old recipe book. The recipes were all about cutting out shapes in your cake to make them into animals!! Inspired by this, and knowing my sister's love of sharks, we decided to take the cake recipe for a fish and modify it to become a shark! All you need (if you're lazy like me lol) is cake mix, white icing, something to make an eye and fins(I used another tube of chocolate icing), a good knife, and blue and green food colouring. Cut out basic shapes of a fish (like an oval and triangles for the body and fins) after baking the cake. Then mix in a seperate bowl, a few drops of green and blue food colouring until you like it, and use the white icing for half of the cake! It's really easy and fun, and you can put any twists on it that you like! We put on additional coconut shavings with the vanilla on some parts of the fish!
(the cake looks messy in the pics hahaha...)

Enjoy!  Grin
