1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rainbow Feather Necklace on: September 06, 2013 01:37:38 PM

I had a bunch of these colorful mini feathers laying around so I decided to make a feather statement necklace to show all of the colors off at once. Here are some photos of the the process and the finished feather necklace:











If you want to see how to make this necklace, I have a step-by-step tutorial over on my blog.

Here's a quick stuffed pepper recipe I made recently which turned out pretty delicious:

The Ingredients:


The Process:




The Finished Recipe:

To make, you just need to saute the veggie sausage and onion, stir in the brown rice and stuff the mixture into the seasoned, halved bell peppers. Top with a panko and parmesan mixture and bake until cooked and browned on top. For full instructions, I have a step-by-step tutorial over on my blog.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Garter Belt from Old Leggings on: September 06, 2013 01:14:05 PM
I was recently in need of a garter belt to keep my knee socks in place, so instead of shelling out the cash I decided to hack up an old pair of leggings to make a DIY garter belt. I opted to make it on the longer side, so it functions more like a slip/garter belt. Basically, I just cut the leggings, hemmed the edges, and attached the suspenders with garter clips. Of course, I added little bows for decoration Smiley

Here's what it looks like:



I started by cutting off the legs of the leggings to create a short skirt length garter belt:


The finished garter belt:




It's a simple process, but if you want to see how to make it there is a full tutorial over on my blog.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mint Teardrop Bead Statement Necklace on: September 06, 2013 01:03:38 PM
After looking everywhere for a reasonably priced necklace like this, I decided (as usual) to go the DIY route. I had a hard time finding these teardrop-shaped beads so I ended up buying them online. Since I could only find them in clear I also decided to paint them mint green with acrylic paints. A few steps later and this is what I made:

5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sushi Costume on: September 06, 2013 12:46:39 PM
I'm already getting the Halloween costume itch! I have a few ideas up my sleeve, but I still haven't decided on a final look. Last year, I finally realized one of my costume dreams and made a DIY sushi costume. The key to the whole thing was definitely the white packing peanuts! Once I found those (for free!), I could rest easy and work on the rest of the costume. I added wrist pieces out of felt to represent wasabi, ginger, and that plastic grass stuff that comes in take-out sushi. On to the pictures!

Ginger & Wasabi Wrist Pieces:


It was a bit of a long process to build this thing, but it was a major success at my Halloween party and it can definitely be used again. If you want to learn how I made this sushi costume, I have a full (overly full?) step-by-step tutorial over on my blog.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed!  Smiley
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / A Few Manicures [Geometric, Ombre & Pastel] on: September 06, 2013 12:21:31 PM
I somehow didn't realize until this moment that people were posting manicures and nail art on Craftster! Not sure how I missed this important info, but I wanted to share a few recent manicures I've done on my nails:

First, I did some multicolor geometric nail art with just bunch of random colors and a little scotch tape. Very simple to do, but it looks a little more complicated.


Like I said, it's pretty simple, but if you want to see how I did it there's a full tutorial on my blog.

Next, I have one of my favorite looks: Ombre Glitter Nails! This glitter polish is my all time favorite!

This one is a bit more complicated, but I have a tutorial on this one too.

Last, I did a two-tone pastel look:

I did this one using paper reinforcement stickers. You can see a tutorial on my blog here.

That's it - hope you enjoy!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Necklace, Headband & Hair Clip from Fake Flowers! on: May 08, 2013 11:54:44 AM
Lately, I've been OBSESSED with fake flowers! More specifically, I've been obsessed with cutting them up and hot gluing them to everything in sight. I love the way they look - it's like your own personal wearable garden. Especially now that it's spring, I'm basically knee deep in piles of fake flowers and I can't wait to make more headpieces, necklaces and pins.
Here are some pictures of my first flower creations when I was just learning and finding my way:

8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Blue Glitter Heels on: April 22, 2013 02:00:20 PM
I made these glitter heels a while back from an old pair of shoes that I accidentally ruined at a wedding. The straps of the shoes were cracked and peeling (they were cheeeeap shoes - $5.00!) after a night of dancing. I guess I just partied too hard for these shoes to handle. Smiley

Instead of tossing them, I decided to cover the shoes in glitter to give them new life. It was a long, long, long process and it took a lot of coats of a glitter/glue mixture, but it was worth it in the end. Here are some pictures of the process and the finished glitter shoes:








You can see more pictures of the process and a full tutorial over at my blog.

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Rainbow Beaded Necklace on: April 22, 2013 01:49:25 PM
I found these awesome rainbow wooden beads for a dollar (!!!) at Staples, of all places. Sometimes I find the strangest, most useful stuff in their cheap sections. Smiley

I wanted to make a bright, colorful statement necklace with them so I went for a three-string design. Here are some shots of the necklace in progress and the finished result. Hope you like it!









It's pretty simple, but you can see a full tutorial (and more pictures) over at my blog.

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Giant Pom-Pom Necklace on: April 02, 2013 08:30:12 PM
I kind of freaked out when I found these strands of GIANT pom-poms at Michael's recently - has anyone else seen them? They are eye-catching, to say the least, and come in a bunch of bright colors. I worked some into a fun (but kind of frivolous) pom-pom necklace and I can't wait to use the rest of the pom-poms for something else.

Here's the finished necklace:






More photos and a full (super simple) tutorial over at my blog.

Thanks for looking!
