I was at target the other day, shopping (early, luckily) for school supplies. I kept running into really funky (aka awesome in my dictionary) notebooks, folders, etc. But all were made by (and advertising for) Hillary Duff. I appologise to any fans who are reading this, but I can't stand her. Zero tolerance. (Stop me anytime...) But as much as I hate her horridly, I couldn't help but admire her great sense of style (yeah, right- her merchandise manager's sense). Anyone know of a non-messy, non-wrapping paper, professional looking way to plaidify notebooks and cheap folders??? PLease help me!
in every magazine or catalog you open, don't you always see those giant butterfly necklaces? I do. I like them, but the trend probably won't last until the endo of the month, so i decided to make one instead of spending the $$$. The pics don't do it justice, the butterfly is actually gold with an oriental-ish pink/red lace pattern on it, and 3 rhinestones (about the only detail in the pictures you CAN see,) but anyway, here it is! Quite easy to make actually, but i have a theory for getting the lacework better next time. http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2004-7/784340/Image029.jpg close-up (sorry about the lack of detail as explained above, i could take more pics if needed) http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2004-7/784340/Image028.jpg full shot
Ok, so I saw that someone posted an embroidered tomatoe purse. When I saw the subject line, this design popped into my head. I don't really know how to link/put pics in my posts, so i hope this works out OK for everyone. (First post w/ pics! Yay!) -olive
edit: trying to fix picture... you may have to copy and paste into URL bar at least for the time being....
Ok, now that my little prayer-worshipy title is done with (heehe): I am very very very much a novice at embroidery. I have just figured out how to do outlines of figures, like, yesterday. Anyway, my point is, i can't fill stuff in. How do you do that? Can anyone describe it? Thanks! -Olive
I dunno what you'd consider this, but I thought it might be cool.
You know those re-freezeable ice cubes that are clear and look like real ice cubes but have water sealed inside and can be frozen, but won't water down your drink? Well, I Pjust thought it would be cool to get a red, big, chunky pillar candle and hot glue those ice cubes (with a low heat glue gun so as not to melt the plastic) in a circle thing around the bottom of the candle. Get it? Fire and ice?
OK... here's what (I think) you do. I haven't tried this yet, but, well, here goes. Get two old records that you despise enough to kinda destroy (In a good way). Put the record hanging half over a rack in your oven. You may have to have it hanging only like 1/3 over so it doesn't fall. I don't know if you'll be able to close your oven then, but if you can, continue. Sometime after figuring out if the record fits, turn on your oven to whatever temp. you fancy, cuz I don't know as I'm just now making this up. (give me points for being honest, right???) Keep a REALLY good eye on the record. I don't know what will happen if it's left in heat too long. Ok, at some point , the overhanging part should now be hanging down straight over the edge. Let this cool IN THE OVEN (may loose shape if set down flat once out of the oven) and repeat with the other record. Once they're all cooled, slide the one end under some books, and you're (books are) stylin!
I made a tissue box out of 5 Cds.... Just be sure to cut one so the hole is bigger and then the tissues can come up through it.... Hot gle them together in a cube w/ one end open. REally cool! (oh, yeah, forgot to say it's kinda tricky cutting the middle out of the CD, just keep trying and turn the scissors as you cut.)
Anybody have any ideas for what to do with those little silver cap things that come on frozen minut-made concentrates? I have alot and cannot figure out what to do with them. If you have no clue what I'm talking about (I'm sure there's a club) they look like little silver platters for barbie dolls. Any ideas?
