15471  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: Super Simple Switch Up on: August 03, 2010 12:08:46 PM
oh my--another bethieb special! Cheesy

Let us know how the paint holds up--they have such great paint now!

I do have to tell you that my hubby had a pair of white canvas shoes when we were first married...we had to go to a formal dinner and we had no money for new shoes...he painted them with a magic marker...ta-da...but when we got to the hotel, he stepped in a puddle--no big deal...until I looked at the carpet and saw that wherever he stepped, he left a shoe print!!!  I was horrified but we still laugh at his painted shoes story! Cheesy

good job kiddo--cute shoes and practical!
15472  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Two altered puzles, and some important tips! on: August 03, 2010 12:04:44 PM
ha ha I received my altered puzzle from sheepblue in the original puzzle box--it had 25 pieces and of course, no picture that I could use to get it back together...it took a few minutes to get it together for a pic, which I then asked her if it was correct! ha ha

I love altered puzzles and found that if you use a nail file to make each piece a little "loose" it will make up for the swelling...I also sand off the original picture a bit (on some, I like the background to show!)...

You did a nice job and I do like both puzzles...I just find it hilarious that your solution was to cut them pieces until they fit!  That is so precious to me! You rock, bethieb!

oh poor anitacj!!  It does sound like you are overwhelmed!  When I was redoing my craftroom, I made a list of everything I could think of that had to be done: paint door, hang shelves, clean baseboard, buy clear bins, etc. etc. It was pages long but it made me feel better to have something to hang onto and cross off!

Then each day, I wrote down three things on a little sheet of paper and felt great if I got two done!  In order to craft, I took a box top and just grabbed whatever supplies I needed, such as my beads and embroidery thread, and worked in the kitchen or dining room...if I had a bin for the embroidery threads, I put them back when I finished my project...if not, I left it there until I got a bin...each day a small thing was done and usually one big thing! I shoved a lot of things into other rooms or to the side until I got one area done at a time...

When you break things into smaller pieces, it is easier to do...like it is easier to say you are going to lose 5 pounds instead of 100 pounds! Cheesy

I just joined a Christmas craftalong and will be using up quite a bit of Christmas fabric and yarn...and felt...no shopping needed! Cheesy

I even have ric-rac and bells and styrofoam balls! I am going to start on my cards as well (inspired by qazicat's adorable cards!)...
